Morgan Freeman as Count Dracula on The Electric Company

I'm going to give away my age by telling you I was born in 1973 (almost 1974), so I spent my time watching '70s PBS in the years before I went to kindergarten.  This included the long-lived Sesame Street, Romper Room, and The Electric Company.  A few years ago, I was reminded that Morgan Freeman was on TEC during that time.  At first I didn't remember him, but when I pulled up a YouTube video, it all came rushing back.  Even then, I had a great love of Halloween and the classic movie monsters (I was raised on horror movies and loved every second of them).  So with great pleasure, I give you a couple of his skits, but there are a few more on YouTube.

Reproduction Beistle--Wonderfully Retro

I just discovered a site that has reproductions of Beistle Halloweenies.  I absolutely love the look of retro Halloween decorations and have purchased a lot from Homegoods--my Halloween Mecca.  While I'd love to have originals, they just aren't in my budget, so I was so excited to find Vintage Beistle.  They have so many items at very affordable prices, and even some free downloads.  I'll be making an order very soon. Oh, and I actually have a couple of the cutouts from my childhood in the late'70s, before I was even in school.  (I've always taken great care of anything Halloween that I've gotten.)  I have the cat sitting on the moon's nose and the jack-o'-lantern in the last picture.  Here are a few of the goodies you'll find on their page.

Back to Blogging

I haven't posted in four years, but I hope to remedy my lack of attentiveness.  First up, my "Morbid Bride" shoot from 2013.  My vision was a bride who lost her love on their wedding day.  Let me know what you think!  Of course, I doubt anyone will see this, at least for quite some time, ha, ha.
