Broom Fell...


...Company is coming !!!

Oh My... Nothing like Flying around the house trying to get ready for Company...
Just getting my self organized is driving me batty !!

Okay... Lets gather out thoughts and think about what we need to have ready...
Me for starters !!
Get my best Oxfords out and shined bright with Stove Black...
And Stockings of course... Hmmm, the black and purple I think !


Oh- and my black velvet shawl with the looong dangley fringe. (I love the reverse side too. All red roses and Flamenco Dancer looking.)

Need to get All the Aunts Dusted in their frames.
Dear Aunt Bernadette...


She was such an Avant Garde' and Fascinating Lady. Traveled the World gathering Treasures & Knowledge. Silks and Satins. Glamorous and Colorful trinkets. Dapper & Delightful Companions.



And My Dears... She Smoked !! Such a Daring role model for a young girl to have !

Then there was Aunt Bitty...


The menfolk always called her a Saucy & Bewitching Belle. Actually she was Most Proficient in Binding Spells and Cloaking ones Countenance. She always did enjoy a nice Disguise !

And Aunt Rosemary and Rosamund. Always quite Dignified and Aristocratic...




Both Full of The Old Knowledge and long Forgotten Tales of Wizards and Conjurers. They were most excellent Practitioners in Divining ones future...


Then there is Aunt Carlotta. Well, what can one say about her...



She was a Magnificent Figure of a Woman. Her Skin was as smooth as Creme.
As Luminous as Alabaster... All over... As you can see.
Oh how she cherished Dancing Naked under the Moon at Solstice !!

So... Find the Book.
Ah, here it is !



Now where is that page..







No, thats not it. Although you could learn quite a bit if you were to study it...




No... but I must be Getting Closer...



Keep looking...







What ? That would have a Totally different Outcome... he he.. Might be worth it tho !




Ah-Ha...
Yes !! There it is !!




Check the ingredients...





Looks like It is All here...




And Beware of the Hair of the Cat Tomorrow Morning... This brand of Tequila can make any Body want to Dance !!



Let me Gather My Girls...


Alice


They do so admire a good party and are so Curious...


Babylon

Besides they have been Known to be Familiar with all sorts of Enchantment and Spell-casting...


Kuchi

Trust me... They always know how to get exactly what They Want !!


So... Let me Grab my Hat and Let The Party Begin !!






Oh... and There will a bit of a Goody-bag afterwards... Just leave a comment by Midnight Sunday the 25th and a way to get in touch and one name will be drawn... and that Lucky Guest will Soon have a Memento of the Evening Winging their way !!!

xoxo
