“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Le Mysterieux Carnival

Remember when I told you I had house guests? Well more have arrived since then... you met the bat sisters...

The tallest woman in the world, Cosette

Voluptuous Vivica
and Joe the shortest man!
They are all super excited to  escape to a different place, a place where the sunset is a big deal everyday!

Where the woods are cool and the scents in the air swirl about with a combination of  sugar and fresh popcorn!

Woods that could be haunted!Take my hand, don't be afraid....
Just get out your ticket and all will be well...here's the ticket taker

What would you like to do first? Perhaps a candy apple? or two?

 Or we could play some games?

Let's walk through the frosted pumpkin gardens, then head over to the midway!

The fortune teller's tent!
There she is!!!

What do the cards have in store for you???
rides on the scary-go-round! and the hot air balloon!
Are you feeling brave???Lets get on the haunted house ride!

The line isn't too long!get in the rolling coffin!
Oh Oh!!!

That was spooky!Let's have candy floss...

and get on the ferris wheel!

I know it's getting late, but I'd like to thank my co-hostess Anna before we leave....
and all the wonderful visitors for joining in on our spooky fun!
