Outfit details: cream knit sweater shirt: thrifted, burgundy pleated skirt: my moms, loafers: thrifted, necklace: from my best girl Masi!

A simple outfit for a warm fall day. Fast forward to today: it's actually kind of cold outside and by cold I mean its 69 degrees and cloudy/misty.  I'm trying to get myself in the Fall mood and I feel like it's only half way working. I suppose I'll just have to make due with lighting  a cinnamon candle, making a cup of tea, and reading about paranormal phenomena since I am OBSESSED. Seriously though. If anyone has any freaky stories about stuff that has happened to them or someone they know tell me! I think it is so fascinating.

In fact, I'll tell you a story right now. A year ago I was asleep, at home, when I heard the phone ringing at what was probably 3 AM. We only have one phone in our house and its in the kitchen. The ringing woke me up and I heard my mom get up from her room and rush to answer the phone. I'm trying to fall back asleep but then I hear my mom say in a a concerned, if not frightened voice, "Who is this?? What do you want? How can I help you???". I think, "hmm..weird. Probably a prank caller or someone who has the wrong number" and I fall asleep.

The next day I asked her who called last night. She looks at me and prefaces her reaction with, "something kind of spooky happened" and of course my interest is piqued. My mom had picked up the phone and heard a very faint, distant, and crackly voice repeat in a monotone, "Elena help me...Elena help me...Elena help me.." for like 10 full seconds then click.


My mom's name is Elena. 

She said it sounded almost like a recording because of how continuous and steady the tone of voice sounded. She couldn't discern an accent but that it was a male voice and very soft.

UM YEAH. I was freaked out! She said she looked at the clock then walked around a little to make sure she wasn't dreaming. I definitely remember her talking on the phone since the ringing woke me up and I was fully awake and listening to her speaking to...whatever it was.


Moving on...

  3. I love ghost/paranormal everything.

    I was taking photos of myself down at the railroad tracks one day. There was no one around so I was using my car to balance the camera on. Anyhow, I'm posing it up doing all sorts of things. Once I was done, I walked over to get the camera and, upon looking at the pictures, saw a young woman (20something) in the background, staring straight at the lens. I turned to see if she was there, but nobody. My friends make fun of me for this, but I'm convinced she was a ghost. No joke.

  7. First off you look pretty as always-
    Second I lived in an old Inn downtown here in Beaufort called the Bay Street Inn http://www.townandcountry.sc/mls/mls-search-details.cfm?mlsnumber=117102&mlsid=4&wsid=1 Check it out, it's for sale now! But anyways my uncle was watching over it while it was being sold back in the day, and one night my mom was there alone cleaning.. well someone called her around 10pm. and said i'd like to get a room, and she said well the inn is closed right now, then he hung up, called again and said, well why are you there by yourself? .. Think about how freaked out that would be! There were soo many scary things that happened there!
    and third- your on my blog post :)

  9. Ahhh your creepy story just gave me goosebumps... seriously! My grandpa has three much younger kids, and when his daughter (my mom's little sister) was little my grandpa and his wife both woke up to a little girl ghost at the foot of their bed who looked just like their daughter... but she was down the hall in her bed! My grandpa also swears that he saw his mom floating outside their second story window the night before she died. Needless to say, I am still freaked out to sleep there!

    Also... come on over & enter my giveaway! :)

  11. Lovely outfit, and yeah, seriously freaky story. I would not have been happy if that happened to me. And Amber's is kind of scary too... Nothing like this every happens to anyone in my family; I think we're all too skeptical, and the ghosts sense it and leave us alone!
