The Time Is Upon Us Once Again!

Welcome Friends!

It's time once again for A Fanciful Twist Halloween Party! Warmest thanks to the lovely Vanessa for hosting again this year.

My apologies for not having this up sooner, I've been dreadfully under the weather and my helpers have been more of a hindrance! My lovely kitchen witch Helvetica has given up time off and has been cooking & baking away since last night but the skeletons have been eating everything in sight (damn their bottomless stomachs!) though they won't fess up and the invisible man has been raving on and on every time the door bell rings!

I do hope you'll enjoy your visit to Pumpkin Manor and have a Happy Halloween! I look forward to your return. (Slideshow below - if it plays too fast, hover your cursor on it until the <- -> appear & click on them to view what you've missed). To see my previous posts for this special event, please click on the "A Fanciful Twist Halloween Party" label at the very end of this post.
