Still Working on Haunted Holtzville

Please join me on my new blog - This project is included with lots of new projects. I hope to see you there. Thank you. 

I tried to finish Haunted Holtzville before my trip, but I can't get it done to my satisfaction. I will show a little bit more about my outfit for the introduction. It's a Halloween costume I made a couple of years ago, but I doctored it up better and I'm going to wear it when I show the village.

This photo is a nighttime photo with the light shining behind the windows on my outfit.

I am so excited to go to Maine to see my friend, Lynn, finish her journey on the Appalachian trail. I took her and her husband to the start at Springer Mountain a few years ago. They intended to do it all in one continuous hike, but one of their dogs had some foot problems in Pennsylvania (known to people doing the Appalachian trail as Rocksylvania). The dog is fine now, but since then Lynn and her husband have alternated doing 3 week sections of the trail. He finished a few weeks ago and Lynn is finishing in 2-3 days. I've never been to Maine before so I asked if it was ok if I met her at the finish which she agreed to.

I am trying to catch up with them a few days before they finish so I can bring them some treats. I asked Lynn what she would like as a treat and she said, "ANYTHING! We will eat anything." She actually said craves cokes on the trail which she has hardly ever consumed in her entire life. That's the way it goes on the trail. So I have my hiking shoes, backpack, tent, sleeping bag and hiking poles (which I cannot for the life of me figure out how to put together. Leki collapsible poles are supposed to go click and snap together, but I cannot get them to click).

Need to get all my stuff together. I have never been able to post a photo off my iPad so any photos will either be on my Facebook account or on Instagram.

I will talk to ya'll in about a week. Take care and stay out of the way of any hurricanes.


  1. I really love what you have done so far, the light behind makes it look so deliciously spooky! Have fun on your trip. I have not been to a lot of States but Maine is certainly one of my favourites! Anne x

  2. I get so excited when I visit your blog, Lucy! Love what I see so far! Best wishes on your hike, take care, and enjoy the scenery! Maine is a lovely state to visit. What I remember mostly from camping there was my first experience fishing IN the stream and coming out with the tiniest fish I've ever caught and lot's of blood suckers! Yuck! I was the only one to catch anything! Our host felt sorry for us and took us to a lake in his boat to fish. We were rewarded with lots of fish; they practically jumped in our boat!

    I guess I'm going to have to hunt down this Facebook account, because I don't want to miss your photos! Sending hugs!
