Just Wickedly Ghastlie and Giveaway

Are people born
My friend Elphaba flew in today for a little visit and we debated this over our usual chamomile tea.
 Wicked or not, she was a dear and brought me this perfectly wicked gown to wear tonight when we go out on our annual ride.
I so look forward this evening's events every year but up until now I haven't had the appropriate attire. This  desperately needs some spooktacular embellishments but that will have to wait. All Hallows Eve is here so it will still do nicely for tonight as it is.

When we finished our tea and the plans for our ride, we wandered upstairs to see what wickedly wonderful projects I have been working on. The sight we beheld as we walked in the room was simply eerie.
 There were so many of them but I only managed to capture this one in the act before she scampered away like all her friends.
The evidence was clear. Lucy was in need of appropriate attire herself. The eight legged critters are really no bother but one wouldn't want them tangling up all the pretty thread, now would one?

With a flick of my wrist and a wave of my wand, a fitting solution to the dilemma appeared.
Oh and look, Ephalba's neighbors the Ghastlies decided to visit too. The entire clan came along for some tea including that menacing cat Sebastian and those 3 sisters whom all have names starting with "M" like me. Coincidence? Maybe? But then again, maybe not!
Ghastlie matriarch Mathilda is keeping her eye on them all so they'd better beware.
 Daria tends to wonder off when no one is looking.
 Time was getting late and more preparations needed to be done before the sun sets tonight so Elphaba was on her way.
My own hat is ready and I'll be on my broom tonight before the 1st trick-or-treaters start making their rounds. My Ghastlie friends will stay behind of course and keep the spiders at bay.
Many other Wicked ladies have cast their spells over their own projects so fly on your broom to their castles to see what they've brewed up for you.












Hat's off to the spectacular Madame Samm and Wicked Wendy for yet another fabulous Wickedly good time.
Just one more thing before you go off into the night. My neighbors
the Halliwell sisters thought it would be simply Charming if I offered up a little treat of my own for one of you.
Saltbox Harvest, 3 half yard cuts will fly on a postal broom from me to one of you.
Leave me a comment of your choosing to be entered to win.
Entries will close
 at the stroke of Midnight on Saturday, Nov 2nd.

Happy Halloween to all and to all a simply Ghastlie night!
