    Someone pinned this cool tombstone on Pinterest and it only led to a photo on photobucket. No blog, no contact info, no creator.

    Meow, So... another one of my tombstone rebuilds, lol!! This is another one of those tombstone that came with the car full of Halloween stuff I bought at a yard-sale for ten bucks. I kind of find it funny that the stuff I went through and labeled 'junk' is the stuff I use the most, lol. I've...

    Check out my 2010 props in my album, I am also working on a new groundbreaker and I pretty much finished a toe pincher coffin, just too tired and lazy to get a picture uploaded. The cauldron was based on the rusted cauldron that was posted on the site sometime ago, I loved that project. If...
