garden of magic...

today i am grateful for...

tombstones

celebrating a gloomy halloween morning at green-wood cemetery with chelsea rose cook and haylie bird waring. i can't think of any better way to jump start the day. haylie actually introduced this cemetery to me in the summer, and i had been waiting to go back ever since. i kept wishing we would see the ghost of a little girl. in savannah i always wanted a young child to haunt our creaky three-story house. alas, i never got my wish.

bright light

the light was eerie. thick grey clouds loomed above, threatening to open up on us. and the whole graveyard was awash in a hazy film. but every once in a while, the sun would pierce through the trees.
sweet chelsea

cookie crumbs

leaves and boots

the girls came prepared with broken in lace-up leather boots, beat up leather backbacks, and crawly spider brooches.i did not get the memo and came in my lynn yaeger costume...

lynn cemetery

...but really i just looked like a triplet of belleville or winifred sanderson. oh well.

mary

pretty girls make graves.


mother

cross

we saw plenty of bewitching headstones and tombs.


dead birdie

and a dead birdie. rest in peace mildred. you were a very good bird.

three little witches

and i learned how to use the timer on my camera.

floating squash

and we released my squash in the lily pond, and i made a halloween wish.

scary ghost

and as i left the woods, i realized i was being followed...

baby lynnie

my wish came true. i've always wanted to be haunted by a little girl ghost. i guess it's true what they say...

be careful what you wish for...

you are cracking me up with the Triplets of Belleville comment, but you did a great job! I'm in love with the sleeves of your coat.

That coat reminds me of one of my Nana gave me.. except yours has that awesome fur! I love these pictures, graveyards are so neat. We hardly have any here in FL. :(

I love your Lynn Yager! Those sleeves are outta sight. And I must admit, I'm also mad jealous of whoever owns those lace-ups.

Mickey said...

What a great idea for a costume! People are always thinking Lynn is in costume anyway!!
