Supernatural experiences haunted objects ... Do you have a possession that is possessed by a spirit
By Sharon Stajda,
So, Can antiques or an inanimate object really be possessed, haunted? Do you love antiques, is your home brimming with them? Do you spend hours in search of wonderful treasures to add to your décor? When you find a treasure do you purchase it without little thought to where your treasure lived, and who owned it before you? Have you ever pondered what attracts you to certain antiques? When you spot something you just know you must have, does your sixth sense just kick in, and you just purchase it? Have you ever purchased an antique that once it's in your home you noticed odd occurrences happening? Such as, unexplained bumps in the night, quite ghostly murmurs in the still of the afternoon or perhaps even things being moved or go missing? You just may have brought home a haunted antique. It seems hard to believe that an inanimate object could carry some residual energy from its previous dead owner. Whereas the previous owner has in some way attached itself to that object and has the power to project itself in the form of a "haunting".
There are so many paranormal television shows today that deal with the paranormal, one such show "Haunted Antiques".Haunted Antiques is an interesting show. Each week the show deals with hauntings that are believed to be caused by antiques or an inanimate object. It's very interesting to see how once the object that is believed to be haunted is removed, the ghostly hauntings as a rule stop.

Do you think - an inanimate object, such as a piece of furniture or perhaps a toy , could be possessed by a supernatural entity ?
"The Magic Mirror
Visitor Jennifer wrote to me and offered to share her haunted antique experience ...
August 6, 2013
I have a mirror dated pre-1850s that came from an old house that caught fire. I've been in possession of this mirror for thirty years, never contributing my weird bad luck, odd sensations, and eerie feelings to an object until recently. My daughter and I call it our Snow White" magic mirror because if we do our makeup or hair in the bathroom mirror, it shows flaws, freckles, clumped eyelashes, but a step in front of the magic mirror and within a few seconds the image peering back at you is flawless! Unfortunately, the magic seems to have a "dark side"; My family has suffered multiple catastrophic incidents. Traumatic car accidents, illness, financial woes, and it's been repetitive for thirty years, no matter where we move, new employment opportunities, financial stability, it all gets taken away again. The mirror has graced the wall of every home I have moved to, seems very coincidental. The bad luck is not the only issue, our dog frequently comes in my bedroom, hair raised, fighting stance and stares up at the ceiling growling, cowering, and backs up to get out of the room. There are times when I walk past the mirror and become chilled if I stop and look into it I honestly feel like it's "mocking " me. There are times when I dust it, I swear the wood frame feels warm as if the mirror is preening at its tender care. I know this sounds crazy, and I would like to think it's all nonsense, but once again, my family is suffering huge hardships, my mother included ( who just recently moved into my home). Any comments would be welcomed!

I Have Actually Had An Ouija Board Experience
I have had my own experience with an Ouija board. I actually purchased an Ouija board at an estate sale. Many years ago my husband and I went to an estate sale in a prominent metro Detroit suburb. The home had belonged to a well-known business person in the area. This made the sale a must, I love antiques, and was hoping to find some great treasures at this sale.
Everything at the sale seemed to be picked over or well beyond my budget. In the basement there was a grand game room, I noticed on the floor in one of the corners a stack of old games. I discovered a very old Ouija board in the pile and decided to purchase it. On the way home, we were rear-ended! Needless to say, that Ouija board was never played with. I had heard never to destroy an Ouija board. So, I just left in in the garage and told all in the house, it was never to be opened! It is still sitting in my garage and has never been opened. Call me superstitious, and you would be right on.
Would you play with the Ouija board, after reading
Tea for Two ?
I thought I would post this photo just to get some feedback.
In the photo you can see I am setting a table, I was preparing to have friends over for a Christmas tea party. Shortly before my tea, I had purchased two different tea sets, both being very old antique sets. I felt very drawn to both, so I purchased both sets.
As I set up the two tables my husband took several photos, the photo here is one of the photos he shot. As you can see I have a rather odd phenomenon in this photo. This white ghostly phenomenon only showed up in one of the many shots my husband took that day?
The Piano Sounded Wonderful - However, no one was playing it !
That is no one could be seen playing it?
When I came across this website, I was so surprised that so many people have haunted antique. I have a story or experience I would like to share with your visitors.
Last year I bought an antique piano. It was from a local antique store. The piano itself was just beautiful, it was a very rare "Evans" Mahogany Victorian upright from about the 1890's. When I first saw it, I knew I had to take it home! I fell in love with this piano.
I purchased the piano on the spot and hired a moving company to deliver the piano.
From the very first night, I knew I had purchased a problem. Deep in the night, I was awoken by sounds of the piano. Not just faint sounds but someone or something was playing a small tune.
I will make a long story short, the piano woke me nightly, and had me so afraid to shut my eyes, that I was lucky to get an hour or two sleep each night. After about a week, I called the dealer that sold me the piano, and he was gracious enough to take it back, and give me a refund. I inquired as of who the piano may have belonged to, and the shopkeeper claimed he picked it up at a warehouse auction, and the piano didn't come with any provenances.
I am a true believer in the fact that objects can be "haunted". I guess sometimes a spirit just loves something so much, they will not part with it, even in death.
I hope you will post my experience.

Would you make an agreement to let a spirit live side by side with you in your home?
My Fastidious Aunt, And Her Beloved Grandfather Clock
The Haunted Clock
Actual Photo of my aunt's beloved Herschede grandfather clock.
My tale is of an old grandfather clock that I inherited from my favorite aunt. As a girl, in the year 1962, I accompanied my aunt on the shopping trip that she actually purchased the grandfather clock. My aunt was a hard-working woman and worked in a factory for the better part of her life. She was known to only pay cash for anything she bought and would save money to make a special purchase, as she did for the clock. As we drove to the store where she was to purchase the clock from, she confided in me that she had always wanted a Grandfather clock, and she knew just the one she wanted. It was a Herschede Grandfather clock, that was known to have wonderful sounding chimes.
When the clock was delivered it was placed in her dining room, and she would fuss over keeping it spotless and well cleaned. You would never find a smudge on its glass or dust on the clock at any part of the clock. My aunt had high standards when it came to keeping her home clean, one might say she was a "fastidious housekeeper."
The years passed, and my aunt passed away. The clock was passed on to me. I placed it in my formal living room, I wanted the clock to have a special place in my home, where it would be seen daily and enjoyed by all. I had the clock in my home for some months, and Christmas was coming, and before decorating as a rule I would give all wood pieces in the house a good polishing. When it came time to clean and polish the Grandfather clock, I was astonished! There was not only not a bit of dust on the clock, the glass inserts were sparkling. To make a long story short I have had the clock for over 15 years, and it always appears clean and dust free. I know this may be hard to believe, I find it hard to comprehend myself? I feel my wonderful aunt, that has long left this earth, keeps her clock clean, and up to her fastidious housekeeping standard.
