A Halloween Dream

Today is the day of the Halloween party at A Fanciful Twist! Please come in and enjoy a little entertainment before you fly off on your visits!

Oh! You caught me just putting the finishing touches to the party post!

Pumpkin girl welcomes you to our branch of this most magical party! She hopes you enjoyedthe story of the Gypsy Girl and her dream in our little film. If you must fly away too soon we hope you will visit again to watch her story! Minerva the financial witch has come to give you her best advice should you want it. She loved last year's party and could not resist a flying visit this year. I put on my best witchy shoes and socks. It is hard work sometimes pretending to be a teacher when really you are a witch. I sometimes think the children suspect. Especially when the pumpkin time of year approaches. Please help yourself to a fiendish fancy and some magic wine. Not too much now-it is very potent and only a sip can lead to all sorts of things... Yes-just a little magic wine and you can meet my friend.... He has flowers for you... ..and would love to take a turn in the garden with you before you have to fly off. Thank you for visiting-see you soon at the next party place!

Dear Mistress Sarah...

Magic wine! My favorite!

What an enchanting party! How kind of you to invite me along. I did so have a wonderful time!.

Please accept my humble apologies, however, for joining your party so late. You see... I was traveling home from New York on Saturday and had no computer access. Now I'm playing catch-up and visiting all of Vanessa's wonderful parties.

Thank you so much for visiting Casa Hice and leaving your little petite footprints on my welcome mat. I hope you will come again, as the door is always open.

And now, I must away and subscribe to your enchanting blog with haste!

Happy Halloween!
