The Witch's House

There lies a small crumbled white house in the middle of the forest where the smell of mildew pervades the nostrils of any person in it's presence. Vines choke the entryways, and toppled trees lean on the perforated roof that can barely support it's own weight. This house has been here for years, and no one knows the complete story. Many say it is haunted, and it is known to the locals as the witch's house.

This is not the first time I have visited this local legend. I came here the year before when people were still able to step up into the doorway and peer around at what lies inside. I remember random baseball memorabilia, a toppled fridge with an open book, and clothes strewn everywhere. What really stuck out were the hundreds of glass bottles circling the forest floor outside the dwelling. One of these bottles reportedly hurled past my best friend's head and shattered on a nearby tree. No one was seen throwing it either. This time, it was far too weathered to step inside. There was too much of a risk of falling through the rotted floor.  I hope you enjoy my photos from the experience, and perhaps they will give you the same eerie feeling that so many report to encounter here in real life.

This old car is the first glimpse as you happen upon  the property.

  1. Wow that place does look creepy! Creepy in an awesome way, though...:)

    Thanks for sharing the photos, I do indeed feel a bit 'eerie' xD

    1. Aw, thanks. If you feel eerie, then I did my job. ;)

  2. I adore abandoned buildings!
    Thank you for the wonderful peek at a lovely site specimen!

    1. I just wish I was able to get inside it and take photos. :/

  3. Wow I wish there was someplace cool like this to visit around my area! Some of the shots were very beautiful and I kept thinking...I would live there! Then I started getting this weird feeling. ;D

    1. There could be places like this near you, you just have to ask around. :)

My Mom Wanted me to Update my Blog

Well, I didn't plan to stop blogging. It just happened that I haven't posted in six months. A lot has happened in that time, and I owe it to my biggest fan, my mom, to post an update. Here it is, Mom!
I ended up going to a few more Goth club nights before I left Atlanta. I went with one to my best friend, who is pictured below:
Then I moved to rural Northern West Virginia where I can walk to water falls and hike up mountains. I live only 3 hours from Washington, D.C., so I've been there a few times as well. 

When Halloween came around, Ryan flew up to visit. We dressed as Titania and Bottom from A Midsummer Night's Dream and drove to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum for a Halloween Ball. The old asylum is huge and has beautiful Gothic architecture. We brought our own beer and walked around, ogling at the elaborately dressed costumers.

I even saw Robert Smith! He seemed very pleased that I recognized him.

Then, before we knew it, Christmas arrived. My roommates and I…

DIY Nose Chain

For those of you who've been trying to hunt down a nose chain, you probably know that they're difficult to find. Even online, there isn't a big selection. The ones I've found at a local Indian mall were pretty, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I finally decided it would be easier to make my own. 

What you need: Any kind of necklace chain (preferably lightweight)Nose ring (you can also make a lip chain if you have a lip ring.)Earring HookMetal loops (You might be able to find a couple on your necklace)Jewelry pliers (I used regular pliers, but it's a lot more difficult.)How To Make It: Measure out the length you want your nose chain. Using the  pliers, separate the chain to your desired length.Take the piece you need, and attach both ends to  the bigger metal loops.Attach one end to your earring hook and the other end to your nose ring. Make sure the ends are tightened enough where the nose chain won't come apa…

My First Time at a Goth Club

When I walked into the building for Ascension, a Goth/Industrial night, they started playing "This Corrosion." I was introduced to Goth six years ago when I listened to the song, so it was like the night saying "Merry Gothmas, Katie!" I'd been planning on going all week, but when Friday rolled around, I was so exhausted from spending the entire day getting a new car (my last one was totaled) and then visiting family with a long drive back. I came home and wanted to just take a nap, and after taking too long to decide, I got dressed and headed out the door. This past Ascension was the last one held at the Masquerade, a much-loved local venue, and I wanted to experience it before I left for West Virginia.

I'd known about Ascension for a while. One reason why I hadn't gone before this past Friday is because of being a student and having lived an hour away. It's a lame excuse. Aside from that, I told myself for years that I wasn't a cluby-type (alth…
