After much detailed planning and research, I am pleased to announce the official Love Manor 2010 theme!
Yes, you’ve guessed correctly! For 2010 we are excited to be featuring the laboratory that’s been hidden within the dark corridors of the Manor throughout all these years. From bubbling test tubes to specimen ridden jars, we’re thrilled to bring you a new and enchanting vision of the ever so popular Mad Scientist theme.
Be sure to follow the soon to come blog posts for concept sketches and further ideas!
Testing out the new Nikon D3000. Can’t wait to be able to take more Halloween photos and post them up for everyone. I may have to just start taking some Halloween decorations out a little early this year.

Well, it’s officially upon us! The year 2010 is here! I hope everyone had a safe and exciting New Year’s Eve.
Now, of course, with a new year and new decade, plans for the Manor’s annual Halloween festivities are underway. I can surely say that this year will be very exciting. I’ll be announcing the theme shortly, which should hopefully interest you all!
Of course this post wouldn’t be complete without a photo, so here’s one of Disney’s Cinderella Castle during a very spooky fireworks display. It almost looks like a scene out of a Tim Burton movie.

There’s nothing quite like waking up to a beautiful Christmas morning and seeing the base of the tree trimmed with presents. I found these beautifully wrapped presents on Flickr.
I can certainly say that I got the gift I wanted this year! Lets just say get ready for a whole new perspective of Love Manor in 2010. Snap snap!
What’d Santy Claws get you?

I hope everyone had both a magical and happy Halloween! It truly is the one night of the year where you feel as if anything is possible. We will be uploading photos soon of our own display but in the meantime, we would love to see some of your photos! So please, comment this post with a link to your own spooktacular photos.

The ghosts of all things past parade,
Emerging from the mist and shade
That hid them from our gaze,
And, full of song and ringing mirth,
In one glad moment of rebirth,
And again they walk the ways of earth
As in the ancient days.
The beacon light shines on the hill,
The will-o’-wisps the forests fill
With flashes filched from noon;
And witches on their broomsticks spry
Speed here and yonder in the sky,
And lift their strident voices high
Unto the Hunter’s Moon.
The air resounds with tuneful notes
From myriads of straining throats,
All hailing Folly Queen;
So join the swelling choral throng,
Forget your sorrow and your wrong,
In one glad hour of joyous song
To honor Hallowe’en!

I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. I hope you’ve all have your decorations up, if not at lead a jack o’lantern or two. For tonight the moon shines, the feeling of magic and wonder fills the air and the feeling that anything is possible fills our minds. I hope your day and night is full of fright!
I’ve finally had a bit of time to get the photos uploaded. Although the display was much smaller this year, I managed to capture some photos that I’m happy with. More to be uploaded throughout the next day or two!

Well, it is now November 1st and though the ghosts and spirits still wander through the Manor on this All Hallows Day, Halloween has come and gone. Though the display was much smaller this year, we managed to still draw in a few Trick or Treaters and visitors whom were more than thrilled with the display. Along with every king-sized candy bar that was handed out, each visitor received a card sealed with a black satin ribbon, inside was a link to our website and a thank you message for their visit. We hope to see a few more signing in a guestbook this year! Please stay tuned for several photos from the year.
