The one about the Ghost Stories book




I am not into anything especially dark or evil, but I love the whole aspect of spooky ghost stories centered around historical places in the world.
The Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana, St. Augustine Lighthouse in Florida...the whole of Great Britain....for example.
Most of my spare time this past week has been spent working on this altered book of mine. It is part of Julie Collings' Haunted and Mysterious books round robin. There are five of us working on this project. Julie started us off by having a little swap where we sent a goodie bag to all the other players. I had never done that before.... what a fun way to start a project!
This altered book has a niche carved out of the entire end of the book, which I FORGOT to take pictures of before I packaged it all up. doh!

My entire book is posted in
my Flickr stream HERE.

It is Fantastic! I love the mix of old and new! And the sign in sheet...probably my fav page! Love those peepers. And yeah, there is something about a ghost story...in the small town I grew up in there was a creepy, old, historic home (sadly run down) that we were forever daring each other to gone in! And constantly making up stories about! Love the project!

Very cool book. I love all of the details you've added. I too like to hear about ghost stories in historic places. Interesting.

Oh, this is right up my alley. I will go and see the whole book, this looks wonderful. I have visited the Myrtles two times now, no ghosts for me...I was ready for some. But we did get some faces when we took a picture of the hall mirror. Weird.
Ok, I must run and see the rest.

Marilyn,
Your book is so great. I love the text broken up like that. I can't wait to see this in person. You really do have talent girl spilling out all over everything you touch.
