Okay, finally got the phase two decorations done this past weekend...if by weekend you mean that it took me till Tues....

Victoria!!
Victoria is back haunting our house for the first time in many years! She is a VERY particular Victorian lady who will only deign to appear if the conditions are right...I guess she approves of the new digs...

Closer up shot of Victoria
So hard to get a camera shot of her...

I'm stuck...
Check out this shot of the yard from above.
I've got all that space to fill and I am stumped on how best to do it!!!
I'm literally drawing a blank here...first time that's happened in years!
Its not like I don't have enough stuff to fill that space two times over I just can't figure out how to do it exactly....

What we do in haunt nerd terms is called a 'walk-thru yard haunt'. For good flow of the patrons (trick or treaters or TOT'ers) I need to have an entrance, an exit and a well defined path to walk in...just can't figure it out though....arrgh...

Plan was to have everything up and debugged by the end of this coming weekend....

Great look to the yard! Love that you now have enough room to show off more of the decorations we've seen from the posts of years past! :)

And on a slightly related topic (not sure you'll care but) Chez 2.0 has been flipped!

Hi Paradox,
Yep got the google alerts for it yesterday...
I wouldn't say its 'flipped' until they actually sell it...sure wish they had pictures with the posting...

True.. shall we call it "Schrodinger's House" ...a state between attempting to be flipped and flipped?

At least whoever purchases it can rest a bit easier, you did great work on the bones... lets just hope the current owner did the same for the skin...
