the halloween ball


Let me tell you the story of a little Halloween princess...


She was a good little witch who studied her spells.


Oh, and sometimes she studied the books about the latest trends in Witchcraft fashions!


Well, what can I say? She was a teenaged witch. She also spent a fair bit of time texting and using her magical orb to instant message her friends.

She had a wicked sense of style!


But that little witch wanted desperately to go to the Halloween Ball. More than anything...


After all, she had some lovely new shoes to wear.


Try as she might, she could not see far enough into the future. Would she be invited?


She murmured a little spell to herself... she even dug out an old family spell and put it to good use...

It guaranteed her her heart's desire if she would just follow the directions. She did so to the letter.


She had all but given up hope... she'd not really done well in her spells class. She was really counting on a future in magical fashion.


At that moment, she heard her messenger approaching with what she hoped would be good news.


Although she was tired... she'd spent the entire day pondering her possible costume choices for the event...

... she raced up the stairs in the hope of all hopes that the raven would bear tickets to the grand Halloween Ball.


Her Raven had arrived! Would she bear good news?


Raven indeed carried tickets to the gala event of the Halloween season! The little witch was beside herself with excitement!


She knew it was time to let the magic begin... and to make a costume decision.


Perhaps she could be an elegant princess?


Or a sparkly cheerleader?


Some sort of pirate girl costume would be appropriate, she was sure of that.


What about a butterfly princess? She decided against it, as there would be true butterfly princesses at the ball and she'd not want to ruffle anyone's wings. Those butterfly princesses were a deceptively cranky lot.

A rough-and-tumble tattoo girl would be fun...


... as would a not-corpse bride. This little witch wasn't much for gore.


She finally decided to be a rock and roll witchy woman... witch-ay woman. She waved her wand and she was off!


She accessorized with the gorgeous bracelet that she'd put together by participating in Saucy's Halloween Charm swap. Each and every charm was gorgeous, and although she'd only kept a few, she embellished her bracelet with vintage earrings, brooches and bits and bobs in her tickle trunk. It was the perfect conversation piece to wear at a Halloween Ball.

She would talk about the lovely ladies who participated and invite fellow guests to watch the blog for the upcoming announcement about the Christmas Charm swap... she was sure they would be as excited for it as they'd been about Halloween!


The goodies were delectable. There were cupcakes of course. It was, after all, National Cupcake Day.


There were jars and jars of Halloween candy... just what she lurrved to see at a party!


There were ghoulish trays of bug-infested seasonal fruits..
.

... and the most delicious tricked-out double candy and caramel apples topped with a chocolate dipped pretzel!


She settled on crispy but gooey-in the middle ginger cookies.


The decor was smashing... from the bats in the belfry,


to the grand glittered skulls and bones.


The little witch had a grand time at the ball, visiting with all the other honoured guests in attendance, in fact she planned to spend the rest of the weekend blog-hopping to see the highlights and leave little comments for her fellow party guests.

Above all, the little witch wanted to thank sweet Vanessa for hosting the annual event... she makes everything in blogland so very special.

And to you , Dear Readers and fellow party guests... Saucy and the little fashion-conscious party-hopping Halloween witch would like to offer you the opportunity to win a handmade Halloween Cupcake Charm Bracelet from Saucy's Etsy shop (like the one listed below). Just leave a comment on this post AND the post below... what a wonderful way to celebrate this most spectacular, magical, mystifying holiday! Good luck!

Dear Saucy ...

Your party is delightful, your model perfection, and I just want to reach into the computer screen and snatch out one of your delectable treats, any one will do as they all look scrumptious!

And ... you have the best timing ever! Sheer perfection, I must say. I just took a break from all the partying, went out to the mailbox and what did I find there? My charm bracelet packet from you, of course! I cannot wait to play with all my charms and assemble the bracelet, everything is fabulous. Thank you ever so much for hosting the charm swap!!!
