Halloween-A Hauntingly Magical Celebration

Tonight, The Gossamer Tearoom brings you a very special exhibit of photographs taken by my husband Victor. I have assembled them together for this very special holiday and this extra special blog event on A Fanciful Twist.

On this extraordinary night...

Won’t you please follow me through a trail of raindrop-kissed spiderwebs...

To a city street not far from here...






The moon gazes at us through her gauzy disguise.





Inside, the decorations have been carefully crafted by someone eagerly anticipating this night...







There are a million little lights in the window.




Betty and Teddy are there.




So are Minnie Mouse, Icebat and Big Toe. The Bearistas have been waiting all year for this.






And the friendly Twinklefish (who, for the occasion is thinking of himself as the Spooklefish!)



You can't leave without having a treat...
I once dreamed that Frida Kahlo served me cocoa from one of these cups so I am sure they must be enchanted...

A plate bearing the image of Mr. Warhol’s famous lips, holding a most yummy marble cupcake with cream cheese frosting and even little marble chocolate chips! The plate reminds me of the opening credits of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"!

Thank you for visiting and...
Goodnight!
