Welcome Once Again to The Tearoom!
Oh, I have waited so long for this!
I have counted my pennies.
I have counted the days on the calendar!
And now it is here!
I am so very happy to see you again, my dearest friends!
I have been away too long.
Do you still have the ticket I gave you earlier?
Here are the rest!
Welcome to The Midnight Carnival at The Gossamer Tearoom!
I am so very happy to be part of the festivities at Mademoiselle Vanessa's Halloween Party at A Fanciful Twist! Don't forget to visit her and the other attendees!
What is your favorite thing to do at a carnival?
Wouldn't it be fun to begin by having our fortunes told?
Please step right this way!
This is Madame Circe, teller of fortunes, revealer of futures...
This is the card she has drawn for you...
(Sometimes Madame Circe surprises us by telling us not just what we need to know for later, but what we need to know right now.)
So many fun things to do and see!
Don't miss the Tightrope Walker
Mademoiselle Bon-Bon Oiseau!
(And, no, I don't think it's cheating to be a tightrope walker if you have wings! It just makes it a bit easier!!)
Please follow Mademoiselle Blanchette de Noire, Mistress of the Menagerie...
These animals are a bit unusual. But do not let their appearance frighten you...
(I promise they do not bite!)
Wouldn't you love a ride on the Cherry Velvet Ferris Wheel?
Or on the Magical Flying Cars?
I'm sure you are ready for a treat.
Please walk this way...
This is Mademoiselle Absynthia...
...She is so happy to see you and would like to offer you a delicious treat!
Our extra-fun carnival would not be possible today without the inspiration and images by some of the most talented people I have ever known. I am so grateful for all of the lovely people I have met here and with great pleasure, I would like you to meet some of them:
-Marsha of Tumblefish
(Thank you so much for all of the fresh inspiration! I hope you like what I have done!)
-Jerry of Shadowhouse Design
(Thank you for the great backgrounds!)
-Kathy of KF Collection
(Yes, I will be letting you know when we are in town next! Thank you!)
And hugs to my dear friends Marie-France, Julia and Kirsi:
-Marie-France of Marie's Freebies and
-Julia of Cemerony and Cemerony Share
-Kirsi of Itkupilli
And thank you so much to those I don't know as well, but appreciate so much all the same:
-Cristina of Asunder Ephemera
-Alison of Harmonica Goldfish
-Karen of Graphics Fairy
-Sabrina of Sabrina Zanetti
Our Dear Friend Mademoiselle Moon sees us home, dressed as an antique doll, such a sometimes spooky, sometimes silly friend she is to us!
And so we wish "Good-Night" to our new friends of the Carnival!
Happiest of Halloweens to all Friends of The Tearoom!
