Halloween Blog Party Hosted by A Fanciful Twist


Come Witches come Goblins come one and come all
It’s All Hallows Eve and time for the Ball
Dressed in our finest we’ll revel all night
Screeching and screaming what a spook-tacular site
The spirits are calling you cannot refuse
So ioin in and follow your artistic muse!
                                                                 Laura

Welcome to Artfully Musing.  Feel free to park your brooms outside.
The candles are lit and the spider webs hung.
The table is set.
The witches are coming…


…and gypsies too.

The cat is guarding the pumpkins.
Owls are flying in from near and from far.
This guy (great horned owl) paid us a visit after a storm.  It sat on our back fence for the longest time, drying its feathers.
Perhaps you are in need of a potion or a spell.
If you’re having fun, just continue down the blog.  It’s all Halloween here all month long.  Lots of Halloween art and eye candy awaits you.  Or perhaps you would like to sign-up for my Halloween Giveaway (details at the top of the blog. 
Happy Halloween!

Hi Laura,

What a perfect Halloween party post! I especially like the photos of the beautiful owl -- and, of course, of the sweet little witch.

I also so enjoy seeing all the great Halloween art -- so much inspiration! :)

Hugs,
Birgit

I'd love to visit your party, it looks spookily perfect. Adorable wee witch, gorgeous owl. (Two of these dapper birds used to live across the street from us in a copse of trees. Sadly both the owls and the trees are now gone.) I didn't get a chance to join the party participants list on time, life is crazy, but I did put up a party post if you have a chance to come by for a visit. http://beachtreasure.blogspot.com/2011/10/halloween-party-post-harvest-tea-party.html

What a delightful little witch! And the owl and kitty are amazing, too. I may need a spell (or two) from you and I could definitely use a fortune-telling.

Enjoy the rest of the party and if you have time, please stop by and visit my party for a bit of spooky storytelling.

Wonderful, Laura! Thanks so much for inviting me to your Halloween party. I love all the photos and especially the cat and owl! Those shots are particularly difficult and rare. (cats don't like to participate...and the owl truly strikes a pose)

Sincerest apologies for my delay in thanking you kindly for dropping by my Halloween Party post! The skeletons have had dreadful tummy aches & that darn broom flew off on its own again :o)
