Moonlight Masquerade

Hello ladies,

My sister and I worked at the Moonlight Masquerade this weekend. Inside the historic and haunted Mt. Holly Library, there was a costume party, a spooky feast and perhaps wandering spirits and goblins afoot.

Allow me to offer you a tour.
In the foyer, you will be greeted by The Raven.
A mantle of expressive pumpkins.
Fiery eyes!
A haunting scream!
You are being watched.
The Magician Tarot card, a crystal ball and The Fine Art Tarot.
On the second floor, a spell is cast.
A grimoire, a candle and a corked bottle of shrunken pumpkins.

Too much hemlock.
Cauldrons and skeletons.
A mysterious skull.
Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken.
Confusion in the stairwell.
An owl guards the attic.
Someone has been here for quite awhile.

My sister and I used the Ouija board in the attic. We survived to tell the tale.

The flash offered more illumination for our virtual tour. In the haunted library, we existed by candle flame and a few glowing strands of light.

Happy painting, ladies, and happy haunting!


  1. The owl looks spooky! I don't think I'll be able to go there alone. I get scared easy. :P

  2. That looks like the best party EVER :D right up my alley!

  3. I loved this tour! Thank you! I'm just sorry I don't live there to see it in real!

  4. Oh, looks soo fun.

  5. Oh, how I'd love to visit!!! The details are something of my predilection. This is always my favorite time of year.

    I had a Ouija board as a kid. I wonder what ever happened to it?

  6. LOVE IT! Wish I were there. Especially adore the Poe stuff. I just finished a Poe inspired mani!

  7. just... scaring!! :) I love this! :O yhe pumpkins... you are masters on that!

  8. This is so nice Halloween decorations!

  9. I believe Dusty was one of the wandering spirits of which you spoke. The fire eyed pumpkin is amazing no wait ablazing. Haha. Love, me.

  10. Love the pumpkins and the cauldron , very cool!

  11. a Ouija board!!!!!! I've only seen in movies, I'm afraid not, I would like to test, have you tested?

  12. Fascinating! I would never use a Ouija board again. I had one when I was around 16 and too many weird things happened. I was very interested in the occult then.
