For the One Tiny Halloween Thing swap, we had to list five themes for our partner to consider.  My partner, Ludi, listed some 'normal' Halloween things like bats, cats and skeletons but she also listed Vincent Price.  I couldn't get him out of my mind and considered it a personal challenge.  Cheesy  The item had to fit within a 4 by 4 inch space so I selected an altoid tin to craft with, and came up with Vincent Price's Living Room. 



There's a mid-century metal chair in front of a TV where his Muppet episode is playing.  There are a few of his movie posters on the walls, and a spooky night outside the window.  Popcorn waits on the little cube side table.  We had one of those tables at my house growing up.




He and Kermit are both trying on vampire teeth!  The walls are red suede with wainscoting.  The floor is 'hardwood'.


I knew it needed something else and decided to craft a tingler to put under his chair.  It's either a pet or is lying in wait for him to arrive home...


I got the frame for his portrait and the awesome tiny window from Retro Cafe Art.
