Absolutely love Bean's polaroids of Rot's props.
I like her Polaroid work in general, but the depth they add to the props is the best.

Frankenstein Baby

No it's not a new Universal cartoon in he same vein as Muppet Babies.
It's my little one who is walking now and rapidly heading to monster phase.
Scares the dog anyway.

I know, this is probably too 'cutesie' for a Halloween blog. But it's my blog so...here we are.

Btw, every morning in the living room she waves at the pumpkin headed scarecrow hanging above the fireplace. (Proud Daddy) and NO, I don't push her to be a "Monster kid" or anything. She seems to come by it naturally.

Mystery in the Air

I do love 'Golden Age' radio programs. Always have.
I'm also a HUGE Peter Lorre fan.
This is a show titled 'Mystery in the Air' hosted and starring the great Peter Lorre in 1947.
The announcer is Harry Morgan of all people. Weird pick, I never heard Col. Potter as the announcer type. He really sells the soap too.

Lorre is brilliant in these and particularly fun when he 'snaps' and start ranting out of control. Check out 'The Hora' for a very frantic ending.

You can also download the entire series here.


Blind clicking through links on Halloween/Haunt blogs usually leads to some great finds.
Today's furious clicking brough me to born2haunt.
Lots of projects and Hot To's. (How Tos? - shavings mug?).
