Halloween Fate...

Are you ready for a night
of Halloween thrills?

(click photos to enlarge)

or maybe a night of scary movies
 and candlelight,
with a loved one to cling to
for safety?

As I girl I loved to dress up as a gypsy,
layers of ruffled skirts,
a borrowed wig with long long hair,
and piles of jewelery...

I have always
been intrigued by Gypsies
and fortune tellers,
the seers...

I don't know that I would truly like to "see" my future
I like surprises too much...

but it is fun to imagine....

I am enchanted by Vintage Halloween postcards,
their simple verses,
foretelling your fate...

the secret of my life's destiny
lies hidden in this beets root,
if only I knew...

perhaps tonight,
I will stumble upon a clever gypsy,
who will share the secret,
or perhaps YOU know?

Night falls soon,
let the fun begin,
stay safe...

Trick or Treat?

Pretty amber light! That beet root is perfect. I wonder what it means? I ran into gypsies on the street in Spain. They grab your hand, speak rapidly in a language you don't understand telling your fortune, all the while scanning the walk for their next mark! haha! Pretty annoying! I trust you were safe from the goblins! xx
