............................BOOOOOOOO

ok, here is what you have been waiting for! (well some of you) my Tatted Haunted House! Yippee!! It took me about 4½ months, on and off, to make it. It is going in the local fair, in July, so as of today, it is finished. If I have any time later, after making other things for the fair, and myself, I may add some other things to it. So, here is the tour...hang on! Above is the front of the house.
Below is the back of the house. There is a gargoyle, frog, spider in the window, two skull posts holding the chains to the large back drawbridge door. Inside the door...Witchy Prue is stirring her cauldron of potion.

This is the graveyard.. with none other than Beetlejuice (Betelgeuse) standing guard. There are several tombstones and such, a gnarled tree with a crow, and an owl. Also, there is a coffin with a little Mummy, and a tree hugging Skeleton.

On the roof, Jason and Grant, the Ghosthunters, seem to have found a little ghost in the window with their ghost hunting equipment. The bell tower stands to ring in midnight... the haunting hour.

The front of the house, sports a nice little entry way, a skeleton waving out the window, a Jack O'Lantern in the other window, and torches to light the way. Zero, the ghost dog from The Nightmare before Christmas, guards the front door. He is on a little wire, so he hovers and wiggles if you touch him.
Also on the roof, we have visiting from Monsters Inc. little Mike Wazowski. The side of the house has a cat in the window, spider in her web, and Mr. Gargoyle sitting around.
This is the end of the tour, hope you have enjoyed yourself. If you are around Frankfort in July.. stop by the fair to take a closeup and personal look.

Totally and utterly amazing. Shame the pictures don't enlarge but I'm so gobsmacked that if they did I'd probably fall off the edge of tat land. Thanks SO much for sharing.

I wanted to make them enlarge, but I don't know how! I have seen others do it, but, no one will tell me how.. booohooo.
Anyway...thanks for the compliments. I put my favorite things into it!

If that ain't the coolest thing in Tatland I have ever seen, I don't know what it! If you don't win first prize for that then those judges are crazy!

I love 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'. Aside from Zero the ghost dog, Lock, Stock, and Barrel are my favorite little creepies! Beetlejuice is definitely another fave.

You are fantastic!

I can't stop looking at it!

Gina said...

I'll be sure to go to the fair just to see this!

Mind boggling! You have pulled elements from so many things I like too! Zero rocks (literally, ha!) and I was totally surprised to see the Ghost Hunters there too. Wonderful, delightful and imaginative work.

I am dumbstruck, awestruck all versions of struck. That is simply amazing. You could be the first person that could open 3D Tatting Hall of Envious for others to come by and drool at your lovely works.

Beautiful works.
