Who's doing Halloween big this year? This will be my last year to do Halloween at the house so I'm going out with a bang and do a mini 3 room haunted house. Next year I will be working w/ one of the local schools for their Halloween.
Pictured is the front room...Grannie's Lil Shop of Horrors.

picabo...hint: Quentin Tarrentino(sp?) movie. Movie was just on night before last and I had to add a frond in front of the dust pan because I didn't have the title right.

Hmmm...Raising the roof? The second one...??????

You have the same problem as me. Maybe we should step up our house cleaning skills...LOL


Adding another puzzle still in the Quentin Tarrentino movie theme.

Edited for puzzle answers. "From Dusk til Dawn", "Kill Bill Vol 1" and "Kill Bill Vol 2"

Last night went well but I do believe I should have specified "Adults must be accompanied by responsible child" because I think adult visitors out number children.

Your zombie hostess. I've never looked lovelier.
