October 1st at Sue’s…

For those of you who know Sue T. and her amazing gift for finding vintage treasures, decorating, entertaining… and the sheer *wow* factor you get when you step into her house… you’ll realize that this blog does not do her home justice. Also, this was only one month into her Halloween decorating. She spends over 8 weeks preparing for her favorite holiday but her house is always set like a stage… as you will see :) Every little nook and cranny has a spooky surprise waiting for you…

This is the end of her downstairs hallway… fun little touches everywhere…

As you walk into her living room….
more living room…
One of her many *incredible* finds… a child’s vintage costume… complete with little pointy hat!
Oh, and there’s another… in amazing condition. C. 1910’s or 20’s. This one also has a little hat with silvery curly-q’s.
An old black and white print with owls… I love this artwork! Wouldn’t this be cool as pajamas (for some reason)?
Not spooky… but her Parisian guest room is just too cool!! I want 50 of those Eiffel Tower lamps for the shop!! How can I whisk myself back to 1950-something and purchase them?? :)

Typewriters, cats, candelabras and a book of spells!

Sue’s son is very involved in the selection of decor each Halloween. He was very excited to show me his collection of mummies and archaeological dig ephemera! I’ve promised to come back and help paint hieroglyphics on a wall or two to help with the Egyptian/mummy theme. Of course he was digging in the dirt and making stone etchings… it has to look authentic :)

I got the full mummy tour in the most awesome of tree houses I’ve ever seen (Well, it’s more like a playhouse on stilts but completely awesome none-the-less)! You have to cross a bridge/plank to get inside and it has a second story! I really really want a tree house! (these pictures do not do it justice, I must take more!)

I can’t wait to see everything when it’s all put together with low-lights, rolling fog and spooky sounds :) I’ll be sure to share those pictures, too! I’m pretty sure Sue should charge admission but it truly is a labor of love :)
