Haunted House with Back Porch

This is similar to the first haunted house I made but not exactly the same.  It has a back side to it to help stabilize it -- it's what I call the back porch:

There's a cemetary, cat under the porch and a witch.  I had to fill this area with something but didn't want more tiny bottles and things that I used on the front side.

Above is just a close-up of the top portion of the front side.  I used a collection of miniatures from Joann Fabric, Michaels and Hobby Lobby.

I packed this up real good with a lot of bubble wrap and extra firm cardboard in the box as it's on it's way from Maryland to my parent's house in upstate NY via the Post Office.  When I brought it to the post office this morning, I put it on the counter where drop-offs go, and the lady behind the counter picked it up and THREW it in the bin for the truck.  I looked at her and told her "that was fragile"..... thank goodness I packed it up good.  Now that I said that to her she probably took it to the back room and stomped on it.  I normally have success with this post office but not today.

Thanks for stopping by ~ Ann
