Yeesss……Welcome to Bella Manor!
You say you didn’t know that there was a Bella Manor? Ah yes. It is a well kept secret. Once a year it rises out of the mists to welcome invited guests to a party so grand and wonderful that it is spoken of in hushed whispers for months after.
Did you bring your invitation as instructed? I certainly hope so. Otherwise the location of Bella Manor will remain a secret as only certain “creatures” I mean humans are asked to attend. YOU are among this years honored few!
Aaahhhh…there it is now. Rising from the mists. It is a beautiful sight, don’t you think? And tonight there is a full moon, to help guide the way.
How thoughtful…..one of the permanent residents has shown up to greet you! Doesn’t he look happy to see you? He just loves visitors.
Please……make yourself comfortable. Feel free to mingle with the other guests and take a look around. Just watch your step. Those floating candelabras have a mind of their own. Grab one at any time if you feel the need for a little extra light as you proceed.
The dining room is a beauuutiiiful sight don’t you agree? And such a wonderful selection of tasty treats and delightful drinks for your pleasure.
Are you enjoying your drink? Why is your hand shaking so? Perhaps a stroll in the garden would help calm your nerves.
Such a lovely evening isn’t it? Aaahhh, it looks like a few of the other guests are also enjoying the garden.
Why are you rushing off? Oh I SEE, you wish to see more of the Manor’s beautiful interiors……….
Oh look! Another of Bella Manors residents is offering fortune telling! She seems to be motioning to YOU!
Lets see what she has to say shall we?
Huuuum……what IS that strange glow?
Oh dear oh me oh my! That stone is glowing strangely! The room seems to be shifting and changing! There’s a strange wind blowing. The guests all look different…….everything is suddenly so so……strange!
That skull suddenly has a strange gleam in it eye!
A strange glow fills the room!
The skeleton seems almost lifelike!
The owl seems to be trying to tell us something……
And the room began to spin and spin and spin………..
And JUST when you thought things could not POSSIBLY get any stranger……you find yourself in yet another room. Filled with……oh my witches and fairies and such. And they are all telling you how fortunate you are to BE there. But you are feeling anything BUT fortunate.
A strange witch with blue hair wanders by. Selling her wares. Complexion Powder. For that perfect green glow.
Strange children. They look as terrified as you feel!
Huumm…..she looks familiar.
A sad looking girl……with her pet RAT!
More signs advertising ????what?
There SHE is again…..
Now THERE is a lifelike skeleton!
His bride no doubt.
You’re invited to join a VERY special club. It’s FREE what do you think?
Aahhh…….FINALLY. Two sweet looking little fairies. They offer to escort you BACK. BACK to your world. Away from Bella Manor and the strangest scariest party that you have EVER attended! What do you think? YES…..did you say YES? You DO want to go back? Close your eyes then…………….
Oh YES! Thing look almost, almost normal here!
Things seem much safer here. Also…..somewhat familiar. Which makes you very uneasy, I know.
Perhaps it is time to leave this party, and blog hop along to some of the other parties! You probably will not be talking about this party in hushed whispers for months to come. In fact, just the thought of mentioning it to anyone that you know terrifies you!
Have a wonderful Halloween my little sweet!
