a spooky story

This is a quick view of the dining room. We still have a ton of stuff to hang. You can see our ketubah hanging on the wall to the left. The front door is over that way too.

The sarcophagus is actually a book shelf that opens up. It's actually a pretty impractical and useless bookshelf. The shelves inside aren't deep enough for anything really. Maybe spices.. but it would make an even more impractical spice rack. You also can't hide in it-- if you were wondering. Maybe a small child could.

We bought it purely for coolness factor. There was an Egyptian import store in the mall where I used to work. They only had one and the gentleman who owned the store was nice enough to let us make payments on it. It took forever and then my mom and dad gave us the last little lump as a holiday gift back in 2008.

After December the store was gone and I never saw the gentleman again. I like to tell it like it's a spooky story but if my husband is around he'll chime in that the lease was probably up and they didn't want to renew. Boring!

Also in case you wondering... I don't think it's haunted. Or cursed. We never smelled anything funny. Heard any noises. No one died. Our dog barked at it for like a week and then stopped.
