A Fanciful Twist's 2014 Halloween Blog Party !

It's that time of year again....time for A Fanciful Twist's yearly Halloween Blog Party.




Anyone in the mood for a spooky poem? 

Oh, I hope so.

I adore fun and spooky Halloween poems.


The House Upon the Halloween Hill


The house upon the Halloween hill is waiting for the day ~



For little clowns.... 




and kids in masks,



coming out to play.

Trick or treat can take you to the scariest of places ~ 


Little ghosties on the graves...
(look closely)


 and dark and evil faces.



With weeping girls...



 and ghostly brides ~



 and twins from beyond the veil.


A weak and tiny vampire boy with skin that shines so pale.



The grown-ups play in masks of their own....


Dressed up like Pierrots ~ 


and fortune tellers study books to ready for their shows.



When the autumn air is upon you, enjoy it while it's here,
Halloween is but a season to fill you up with fear.




A huge thank you to Vanessa Valencia for hosting these amazing parties each year.  xoxo


Hope you enjoyed the vintage photos.  They are all from my personal collection.



Until Next Time:

Excellent spooky poem, oh and those images. Crikey some of them were creepy. Creepy is good though. :-)

Dear Kim,
I love your party so much! How creative of you to have used so many beautiful vintage photos!! So much fun to look at, like opening a time capsule!

I hope you will have fun at my Halloween Circus, which has appeared overnight, close to The Tearoom!

Wishing you a beautiful and spooky Halloween!

The "dark and evil" face before the weeping girl made me jump a bit. What a creepy grin she has!

Came to visit from A Fanciful Twist!

I loved your poem. I have to confess, the face of the "dark and evil" girl sent chills up my back! I wonder what she was thinking when that photo was taken? No, wait...I don't want to know!

Happy Halloween!

I loved the poem and the pictures you put with it! So many wonderful old prints. For all its marvels and charms, I sometimes think that modern photography lacks a certain *something* that old photos all seem to have...

Happiest of Halloweens! =D

Christina Paul said...

LOVE your photos - what a great collection-something about black and white lends a completely different atmosphere- the twins were actually a little terrifying -lol I started collecting old photos a while back and seems they are harder and harder to find

Musings from Kim K. said...

What a fantastic collection of photos. I especially love how they complimented your poem too. Halloween hugs!

Jennifer said...
