Well come indeed! Delighted you could stop by for a spell. I was up rather late last night, summoning a fine creation whilst the wee ones in my house were all abed. So today brings a very gentle, subdued, and small-scale celebration in anticipation of the arrival of Hallowe'en - certainly the most wonderful time of the year.
Be sure to stop by the spectacular festivities going on at A Fanciful Twist, hostess extraordinare and mistress of this grand blog party extravaganza. There's a long list of revelers there for you to party into the wee hours with!
I set a little table in the garden, and wondered who would come at the call of the invitation I whispered on the wind. Small ears, tiny feet, my guests sat themselves and relaxed in the mellow Autumn light.
I did specify one detail about my guests' attire. I insisted on a pink and black theme. A favorite combination of mine which each visitor adapted to their personal style.
Except for Pirouetta there- she had the audacity to copy my outfit almost exactly. I suppose I should feel complimented, but the stripes are my signature- and her pink velvet is prettier than mine!
I told her so and I think I hurt her feelings :(
But there was tea to be shared, and memories to be spoken of. Of past times and other places.
Varali wove mysterious tales about faraway lands and brave deeds.
We sat, rapt, until it was time for farewells at the bottom of our cups. A lovely gathering altogether, but alas a milliner witch's work is never done...
So without further ado may I present for your ensorcelled pleasure, the final design of 2010, Dance With Persephone. One of a kind millinery masterpiece available from Mermaiden Creations.
Before you bid adieu and your broomstick take up, I invite you to participate in my Giveaway, a chance to be the winner of this handmade soldered ornament bearing the image of a bare vintage mermaid, Parisian style, pale glass and glimmer.
