A Hauntingly Magical Celebration
It's finally the day of Vanessa's Hauntingly Magical Celebration!!!
I had so many plans for my little corner of the party but alas, life has been busy, busy, busy. Oh, wouldn't it be lovely to really be able to twitch my nose or "flick and swish" my wand and make things happen. Alas, I'm forced to do things the old fashioned way, at least, most of the time. Hehehe.
So, I did the best I could. I thought since I never managed to have that real time Witches' Tea I'd hoped, I'd have a wee Witches' Tea for all of you. I've been baking up some witchy goodies.
Pumpkin gingerbread cookies. I used my new cookie cutters, the ones I found last year. I'd been looking for years for some that were gravestone shaped. While these are baking, I'll set the table and then go freshen up, looks like twilight is upon us and hopefully folks will start arriving soon.
Oh! I see a few figures flying low over the neighbor's house. Welcome! Come on in!
Feel free to leave your brooms here by the door.
Or next to mine in the dining room. I'll need it later to go visiting other party folk myself. What? Some of you came by car? Well, hmmm, what an odd way to travel. But no matter, just glad that you came!
I wish I'd had time to make more goodies but I'm betting there are lots of holiday treats at all the party stops you've been visiting. Here's my offerings.
Tea? I've got some strong black English Breakfast in the orange polka dot pot and a rooibos pumpkin spice tea in the white witch pot.
Soy milk? It's vanilla. None for you in the pumpkin spice? But yes for the black tea drinker. Of course!
And a cookie? Or two? Feel free to indulge, there's plenty more in the kitchen when this plate is empty.
Or would you prefer one of these?
Yum. This little witch's broom is tasty. I'm using one of my fortune telling cups so that I can read the leaves for you after a while.
My witch hat is at the cleaners so I, wise Madame Owl, am wearing my new crown. Hubby had to help me with the photography so my hands were free to oraclize... oracle-ize... er, read the leaves. (I obviously didn't marry him for his camera skills, ahem) Let me concentrate for a moment........
It looks like this coming year the fates will be smiling down upon you!
I'm so glad you were able to stop by for awhile. You probably need to be off, so many parties to attend before the night is through. But...
If you're interested in a something a bit stronger than tea, come on back later. I'll be opening up a bottle or two. Hmmm, looks like Hubby has already started on that white wine on the end.
If you don't get a chance to get back again tonight, please don't be a stranger. (Although it's fine if you want to simply be strange, that's cool.) I "Post Spooky" all October long so there will be lots of Halloween, Samhain, and Dia de Los Muertos, or just a little spookified topics to enjoy both here and over on my studio blog, Laume's Studio, all month long.
