You have to love an artist that has the following categories of artwork on her site:
Portraits, Animals, Nudes, Architectural, and Halloween.
The exquisite art of Laurie Meseroll.
"I have imagined over and over again what my dream house would look like, the way some girls obsess over their wedding or their future children:
On top of a cliff overlooking the ocean and a rocky shore. An old house with maybe two fireplaces. Nooks and small small rooms… maybe even to the point of seeming choppy, except a large bedroom and living room would be nice.
Or deep in the woods by a creek.
Or a stone-and-brick house in a city that looks like a good trick-or-treating neighborhood (you know the ones)."
A great new website design from an old favorite - the classiest Halloween act around.
I truly cannot wait to see her 2008 display.
Click on "Filoscope" to watch her fabulous 2007 haunt video.
Here's a teaser screen cap.

In addition to his beautiful Halloween-laden paintings, Mister Reusch happens to make some amazing masks. The most unique I've ever seen. His materials: "Yardsticks, Galvanized Wire, Masking Tape, Acrylic and Fluorescent Paint, Bike Lights, Black Fabric." Wonderful.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee will be available 8/25/08 at Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. My personal favorite.
(Feel free to recommend other brands - I'm WAY open to having multiple varieties of pumpkin spice coffee.)

Great photo of a really cool yard haunt. Love the wooden fencing and the guy up on the roof. I always admire haunters that go through that sort of trouble to make Halloween memorable. A roof prop is in a class of its own.
Found some beautiful pieces of scarecrow art on DeviantArt.com - pages and pages of scarecrows.
Image source and more great pics.
