Creepy Ol' Attic

Yet another abandoned house you're asking? Nope! It's my very own sorta creepy, maybe-sometimes haunted attic! With temperatures plummeting well below freezing I couldn't fathom stopping along my way to the post office to take outfit photos. M-m-must minimize time spent freezing outside! So instead, I hauled myself up the creaky stairs into the attic of house. It's a space perfect for storing all of our extras that haven't quite found a permanent place in the house but not exactly a room I hang out in, um, ever.

As for the haunting, I'm sorta half kidding. There have been some mystery wet spots that appear on the floor outside the attic door (do ghosts do that?) and the cats are always howling when they walk by it. Plus there's been a knocking noise (which I'm sure is caused by tree limbs hitting the roof, but it's more fun to imagine it has a supernatural origin!) and I swear I felt something tug my skirt when I walked by the door one day!

Oh, it looks a lot like the attic in my old house!

Are you already craving for spring, like me?!

The jumper is fantastic -- and I love your maybe-haunted attic. I wish I had one (instead, I just have upstairs neighbors engaged in constant weekend remodeling projects).

It doesn't look haunted at all, just cozy and old and kind of..romantic. I'm imagining a Mr Darcy moment here of course... :)

Ooh, how atmospheric! LOVE that jumper. Maybe the ghosts are leaving ectoplasm outside the door? ;)

oh man I love haunted places more than anything! I get so easily freaked out but in a sort of thrilling-i-like-it sort of way and I think if I had an attic like yours I'd set up shop up there and make it into my crazy-lady workshop and allow stray cats in and stuff!
or maybe I'd leave it completely barren except for one creepy doll and send my little cousins up to play in it and get scared! hahah

either way, great space! your house looks like a dream from the peaks we've gotten so far!

Those kind of rooms always creep me out whenever people talk about hauntings. I don't believe in that sort of stuff but it's still not fun to talk about.

Amazing photos! Love your jumper, you seem so have so many beautiful ones!

I think ghosts are more known for cold spots than wet ones, but I suppose they could branch out! Creepy!

I write off every little noise I hear in my own house as being a ghost. Love your spooky attic!
