I found that claw feet turned upside down worked great holding candlelight. 
Old door knobs scattered about resembled little pumpkins...
I found this water damaged old photo in an antique store...she looks perfect:  a little creepy!
I attached a pretty broach to her collar to spice her up even more...
Black Night, Full Moon, Little Goblins coming soon!!

Lighting is one of the most important elements for a creepy Halloween mantel...

As far as the no smiling in the photos from way back, I always heard that the subject had to remain very still for several seconds or longer for the exposure time. I can only imagine what their mouths would have looked like if they thought they could hold smiles for that long. Posted: 1:25 pm on November 1st

Did you ever notice that no one is smiling in photos prior to the 1920's. My assumption is life was tough and toothpaste wasn't a priority.
