Specters spotted at Kirkland's

My sister Ladan, who toasted ghosts here, spotted these at Kirkland's:

You can get them on their site here!

I'm bummed this bored skeleton statue is sold out there:

 Send me photos of specters spotted in stores and I'll share them.

A toast to Casper

Casper: 1992 - 2011

For nearly two decades, I had a cat named Casper. He was also my best friend.
We shared a lifetime of precious memories. But when he reached the last year of his life, things took a turn for the worse. He was frail and skinny. He started having seizures. Had at least 15. I was too scared to sleep or to leave his side. But eventually my little buddy couldn't go on any longer and he passed where he spent most of his time, on the end of my bed, on a nice comfy blanket. A part of me died that day. I mourned him for many years. I was dead set on never getting another cat. But one day I met a silly little rascal that caught my eye. So I took him in and adopted him. His name is Zero. He is my little buddy.
I will never forget Casper and Zero will never be a replacement. But it was time to move on and begin a new chapter in my life...






This post was written by my boyfriend Jonathan for Spectember.

Is your heart haunted by a furry friend? Submit a toast to them.

Spectember Invitation from Paperless Post


Submit ghost toasts (tributes to the dearly departed, real or fictional)
to blacklacewings85@aol.com and I'll post them here all month.


It was fun and easy to create that digital invitation on Paperless Post.
The only hard part was picking one of their 123 Halloween invitations.
They also have digital cards, flyers, and invitations for other occasions.
Some are free, some cost digital coins. They start you with 25 coins.

You get to customize the envelope and pick a stamp to put on it too.
So even though it's a digital card, it looks just like the real deal.
As you can see:


Comment with your email address for a personal invitation.
So you can get the full experience.

Friends Til The End

That's the title of this awesome Chucky portrait by Living Dead Girl Nicole:


See her giving the original to Brad Dourif here!

I won a print of it and her Tiffany portrait in a Wishmasters Project auction.

"Barbie... Eat Your Heart Out"

You can buy both in her shop here!

Since yesterday was National Doll Day and Friendship Day,
I thought it was the perfect time to share them and this song:



It reminds me of Chucky & Tiffany and my boyfriend Jonathan & I.
We've broken up several times in our near 13 years of friendship,
but we always get back together. Our love is forever.


He's my kind of angel. I must share that song too:



"Love and music kill me, but I wanna drown in them both"

A Nightmare On Friday The 13th Of July

Welcome to my nightmare!


Put on a party tee. Then get ready to Do The Freddy!
That's the first song on Freddy's Greatest Hits here.


It came out in 1987. The same year as A Nightmare On Elm Street 3.
That's my favorite of the series, so I need these new toys:

8" Nightmare 3 Tuxedo Freddy Figure


7" Nightmare 3 Ultimate Freddy Figure


18" Nightmare 3 Freddy Puppet


Get info on them and see more Nightmare toys here.

Now visit fellow Freddy fans listed here.

Happy Friday the 13th!

Lucy Hates To Leave

That's the title of this episode of I Love Lucy:


My apartment looks like Fred and Ethel's now.
The living and dining room is filled with boxes.

I'm packing my room next. So not looking forward to it.
My dolls aren't either. My Lucy hates to leave her home.


My Monster High dolls don't want to leave their runway.


The dolls in the curio cabinet and closet are saying "Nooooo!"


But on Monday we must go.
My brother and I are moving into the house we inherited from our grandpa.
It's only an hour away, thankfully.
Sadly the house is small, but it's bigger than our apartment, so it's a step up!


Email photos of your dolls to me and I'll post them for all to see!

Blue Velvet (1986) Play Set


Get it here. Then you can pretend you're Frank (Dennis Hopper).
While you watch Ben (Dean Stockwell) lip sync to In Dreams by Roy Orbison:

Warning: Frank drops F bombs in that video, and through the whole movie.

He also calls Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) neighbor, so I thought of this video:

No disrespect to Mister Rogers. I love him.

Speaking of which, tomorrow is Loving Day and Red Rose Day.

The Doll Days Of Summer start today, World Doll Day.
And will end on August 5th, National Doll Day.


Email me photos of your dolls to be featured.
