Halloween Party Give Away

You made it up the hill on this blustery October evening?
How brave you are.

Watch your step.
It seems the place is kind of falling down around us.
No need to fear.

We have been waiting for you.
The kettle is boiling.

The owls ask Whooooo is it?
Don't mind them.
They are just a little curious.

They think they are the guardians here.

Of course the ravens have a different idea.
They may answer "Nevermore."

This is the season of magic, when anything can happen.
Ghouls and ghosts celebrate in wild abandon.
It is the time of old stories and bonfires and revelry!


You have to leave so soon?
Be cautious on your way home.
Go quickly past the abandoned house down the road.
Otherwise you may get a glimpse of something you would rather not see.

Don't mind that reflection in the window.
It is nothing but a lamplight...
at least that is what I choose to think.

Take a swift left past the twisted vines.
Follow the screech of the owl.
Mind your step and don't look back.

My prayers go with you.
I hope you find your way home safely.

Thanks for visiting Frippery Farmhouse.
Hope you will return one day.

Thanks to Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist for hostessing this Halloween Party.

As a treat I am giving away one of my 5X5 little witch collage's on canvas.
"Like" Frippery Farmhouse on Facebook and leave a comment here to enter.

I will choose the winner Monday evening.
Meantime thanks for coming to my party.
Now go visit all of the other revelers at Vanessa's and be sure to arrive back home in one piece...

Yours in thrills, P.

Pin It!
