FeyaVanya's Haunt: A Halloween Celebration

Where does the Black Pumpkin reside?

Nestled near the misty Sierra Nevadas...

where magic-eyed owls wait in caves...

and the sun sets a fiery orange...

There resides a small cottage called Feya's Haunt

that bears a certain, mysterious charm

where wondrous things await at the turn of the nob...

Inside, we are surrounded by a spooky glow

3 tall candles lit ... what does this symbolize?

Where Jacks ride on ravens

and witches ride on moons

you spot a tiny pumpkin carriage with a spooky glow...

It pulls into the light

and stops outside a tiny haunted house.
Who could it be waiting for?

This house also speaks of dark things...

with poison apples and bat shadows on the wall

where haunted faces stare

and wonder at their visitors

and tiny black cauldrons hang from tangled branches.

Where spider witches grace the mantel

and ancient angel witches

watch over cooky pumpkins.

There, in this cottage, lives a dark-winged witch

(who happens to adore all things Twilight - the books, the time of day, what have you)

and her little daughter witch-in-training.

This is also a place...
where dolls come alive
and an elvish princess
can't wait to kiss her king

or an Elvish Queen
kisses little hobbits on the head.

This is a place where Jedi Masters fight

and Dark Lords of the Sith reign

or have Force visions of long lost love.

So naturally,
in this place,
there also lives a little Storm Trooper.

You look up and spot something
floating from the sky light...

it spins slowly downward
on a large, ghostly leaf

Why, it's a faerie!

She's come to show you her friends...

for this is also a place where faeries abound!

They swing from nooks

and tell stories in books

or sit atop an ancient tale

or read their own.

In the place, where
faeries peer at you from inside glass

or behind it

where faerie treasures are collected

there also lives a little faerie child.

These children love their boo shakes

and candy corn galore!

After the Black Pumpkin
is placed front and center

and the milk glass lit

giving off an eerie glow...

After the crystal ball is consulted

and the potions
from the broom closet

the witch and her children
carve glowing jack-o-lanterns.

Finally, after the little Storm Trooper tuckers out,

the little witch-in-training starts to fade with sleep

and the little faerie floats away on dreamland clouds,

this witch puts her feet up
and plots her her next witchy-craft endeavor

... to bring you
more mystical and whimsical goodies
with just a sprinkle of darkness.

Thank you for going with me into Feya's Haunt! It was super fun for me to create this little adventure for you.

  23. I'm getting tuckered out trying to visit the gazillion corners of Vanessa's party - but I'm so glad I made it to yours - what a visual feast! And I loved how you had themes for each of your kids. Too sweet. There are just too many things I'd love to comment on but, I'll pick just one - I really like how you included books, both opened and closed, in your decorated vignettes. TOTALLY need to remember to do that more.
