Happy Halloween! Here’s a few more shots from our weekend in Salem. We went to the Ropes Mansion which was used as Allison’s house in Hocus Pocus. If you couldn’t tell, I really love that movie. We also visited Max’s house a couple years ago. There’s a few more spots around that were used in the filming that I haven’t been to yet. Anyway, I bought this coat on our first trip to Salem and it always reminded me of Allison’s coat in the beginning of the movie so it seemed fitting to wear it here. (Even if it was 80 degrees out…)
There’s a lot of history in this town. I’ve never been to any of the museums about the witch trials but we did visit the memorial and the cemetery next to it. Have you been to Salem? What’s your favorite part?
Pioneer Village was the first stop of our trip. We had been here once before but I wanted to go back again. The village was built in 1930 and shows what life might have been like in 1630. It was also used to film some of the scenes in the beginning of Hocus Pocus!
I wore this Halloween skirt I made last year. The fabric is Michael Miller and I love it so much. The pumpkins are very vintage inspired. I also wore my brooch from Luxulite. It even glows in the dark!
The skirt was a very simple pattern I drafted using Love at First Stitch. I think I’ve mentioned this book before. If you are thinking of starting to sew, I definitely recommend it!

I mentioned that I was going away for a quick trip. Well, we headed up to Massachusetts for a night. It was not enough time but it was fun to get away.
I love Salem. This was my third time visiting but my first time going to the Peabody Essex museum. I was really excited to see two exhibits there. “It’s Alive! Classic Horror and Sci-Fi Art from the Kirk Hammett Collection” and “All the Flowers Are for Me” by Anila Quayyum Agha. They did not disappoint! I’m a big fan of horror movies and 30’s- 50’s imagery so seeing all of those movies posters was amazing. I couldn’t believe how large and thorough his collection is. There were also some fun movie props there as well. The exhibit runs until November 26. And All the Flowers Were For Me was so beautiful. I’m so glad I was able to see it. That exhibit runs until April 1. If you are able to visit, I definitely recommend going!
I’ll be back soon with more from our trip!
