H is for Hearse


Welcome to Day 8 of the Blogging A-Z April Challenge, 2013!  Each day in April (except Sundays) I will be posting here, and the posts will be in alphabetical order!  This blog is all about my love of Halloween.    I'm not into gore, so don't expect to see a lot of that.  I love exploring cemeteries, so several of those will be featured, as well as props I have made and other ideas I've admired on the Halloween Forum and Haunt Forum and Pinterest.

For some shameless self-promotion, I have 2 other blogs in the challenge, too.  Check them out!
Random Ramblings - lives up to its name.  Totally random.
The Life of Lisa - health & weight loss related

A hearse or funeral coach is used to carry the coffin from the church or funeral home to the cemetery.  Some people also use these for daily use.  There's a guy in my neighborhood who drives a hearse with purple flames, his license plate says "6 ft under".

btw, I got these photos off the Hell, Michigan Facebook page, their Hellfest albums.





Hearses are also really cool & elaborate haunt props. 

Heading over to the Halloween Forum, let's look at some of the offerings....






and you can't have a horse-drawn hearse without the horse!!!

This one has a real skull. 



I would so long to have the horse & coach, but I don't think the hubby would like to store something this big in our garage.
