What a Lovely night...

For haunting. It's raining off and on, there's lightning, and the occasional thunder. Welcome fall, I missed you.

Old Packaging

So, of course, the photo shoot is certainly not an easy venture, so I'm taking a bit more time than I originally intended. I'm a detail nut. 
Look a can!

In my search for all things vintage Halloween I found this. It's a 1960's Licorice flavored soda. 
I love the typeface used, and the witch herself is really Witch Hazel-y to me... 
Love it.

I will hit 13000 views tonight. Mother of Pumpkin! That's a lot of clicks! I think, to celebrate, I'm going to do a random photo shoot.
Give me a few days, I have a lot to set up.

I think I'm in love

Image by Syfy Channel, Image taken from, found through Google.

I watched the show last week, I watched the show this week.
I am so hooked.
I don't care if its real or fake, this kind of beautiful storytelling is something I adore and is something I wish I could see more often.
It's so good Mr. Strublay is hooked too! Mr. Idontbelieveanyofthat was totally sitting forward on the bed watching this. It was epic to see. I'm in such an awesome mood right now because of this show. It's surreal.
I love this show. I love it. It comes out on DVD I'll own it.

Found this cool thing at Target, decided I had to have it and for around 4 bucks I think it was a good deal. Against the turquoise of my Kitchen wall it looks awesome... Might go pick up another to round the wall out... or my old paper skele will take up residence on the other side... 
I love the simplicity of it. Three colors, classic theme... its a better example of the neo-retro theme that's been going around lately.
Neo-retro? Retro Renaissance? Modern 50's? *shrug* what ever... I'm seeing a lot of new takes on older objects.

Totally just happened.

I squee'd upon finding it.
I hate and love Target all at the same time.

The Goldfield Hotel

According to most legends of old-time Nevada, the Goldfield hotel in Goldfield Nevada is one of the most haunted spots in the state.  Opened in 1908, the Goldfield Hotel was the most spectacular hotel between San Francisco and Chicago, with 154 rooms, an elevator, crystal chandeliers, electric lighting, telephones, mahogany trim, and leather seating. Then the city of Goldfield died with the end of the short-lived Nevada gold rush and with it the last remnants of the splendor the hotel could have been. For 50 years now, the building has lain dormant, an abandoned shell of a building in the midst of the Nevada wasteland. It looms grimly over the other buildings in the town, the 4 story brick building dwarfing everything else within a good hundred miles.
The tales of the haunting are endless, and the legends surrounding the giant building never have truly added up. In 2004, a trio of UNLV film students and Ghost Hunters under the name Ghost Adventures created a documentary here that involved flying objects in the basement (including bricks), noises, and more. TAPS has visited the location, as have several other well publicized crews.
We visited the Goldfield hotel on our way up to Boise, and found that the fences that had been up 3 years ago have been taken down. The town was silent, and the hotel was in shadow. Talk about creepy.

Let there be updates!

Website Updates! I decided to give the website a face-lift for the 2011 season! The background and the titular banner will change at some point, but here are the first set of major changes.
ALSO: If you want to get some Beautiful Halloween to your mobile device, I've enabled a simpler mobile site that allows you to check out Beautiful Halloween with out crazy load times or funky formatting problems!
I hope that this makes visiting my blog better for everyone, and I hope you enjoy my rampant oddness this season!
