What A Nightmare.....

Nightmare Before Christmas, that is.

This tote-full is just the tip-of-the-iceberg when it comes to my Nightmare Collection. I have shirts, 
jackets, book bags, Disney "ears", framed art, dimensional art, holiday decorations, window clings, 
dishes, magnets, music boxes, and even breath mint tins and lip gloss. Yes, lip gloss!

I am a HUGE Nightmare Before Christmas FAN!!! I love everything Nightmare. Actually, I am mostly
smitten with Jack Skellington - as the Pumpkin King and as Santa Jack. 

I LOVE the MOVIE. The stop-motion animation. The music. The story.

I love Disneyland's Haunted Mansion when it's decorated for the October-December Holiday season.
Whoever thought that up, was a genius! Now, if only someone would do a
Cirque du Soleil-type show. I would be the first in line to buy a season pass!!!

Jack even appeared as a Pirate in the animated movie, James and the Giant Peach. He is SO cool, 
as a skeleton pirate with a skeleton parrot on his shoulder - I even have that toy sculpture.

If I could, I'd deck-out my Jeep in full Nightmare regalia - with a big 'ol Jack skull on the hood 
and the song lyrics pin-striped around the body! Yeah, there'd be no mistaking I was a fan then.

I plan on displaying my whole collection in my new office - we'll be moving this Summer. 

Oh yeah. I guess, I haven't shared that yet. We (and another business) are in escrow on a 
new-to-us old building. It's a 50+ year old structure, with lots of quirks 
and character, aka. needs a good re-habbing- and it will be a longer commute, but I'll have a bigger office. I haven't nailed down the final design yet, but it will be Nightmare based. I can't wait!!! 

I can't. I can't.

my other ALL-TIME favorites! Yum!!!

I love this movie too, in fact it was the first DVD I ever purchased! I had it on VHS all those years ago but when we converted over I had to have 'Nightmare' in the DVD library first. I haven't shown it to the kiddos yet, not sure why but I'll have to do that soon.

Good luck with the rehab, will we get to see progress pictures?
