A Bewitching Halloween Party


"Come in." She said in a creaky voice.


"You must be here for Miss Vanessa's Halloween Party. Step into my Witches Parlor."


"It will soon be dark outside. That howling wind will chill you to the bone." She cackled.


"Won't you have some tea? What? You aren't thirsty? Come now, don't be afraid. I mean you no harm."



"These are my effects. I use them to concoct my potions and deeds. I don't mean them for evil."


"It would be nice to have some company tonight for it will soon be so dark that I won't be able to see the wart at the end of my nose."



"Can I talk you into staying awhile? Maybe I could convince you."



"The old ghosts still walk and the ghouls roam. I think you will be safer inside, don't you?"



"I know there are many parties to attend. These affairs of Vanessa's are renown."


"We'll see what a spell she spins over us. Yes, she's a clever one, indeed."



"I'd like to thank you for stopping by and making my party special."



"I must warn you to be careful and bundle up on your way."



"Watch out for those who might not be so friendly."



"Come back when you get the chance. I'd love to sit a spell with you again."




Best Witches, Twyla and Lindsey

Jacqueline said...

This celebration of hocus pocus is bewitching fun. When you two put your witches hats together the owls hoot and the wolf prowls and all frogs leap for fear of being tossed into the mix. Endora and Bewitched would be proud!
