let's go to a halloween party!!

come along on a wee adventure.
an adventure of a lovely lady.
a lovely lady named Madame Lulu Spooklita
(it was an old family name)
who became lost on her way
to a most fabulous party,
hosted by the most fabulous
hostess, with all
the most fabulous guests.
she received her delightful invite.
she immediately said

"yes, yes!
I'll be there!!"

and she set off for an evening filled
with delectable food and whimsical
folks and all things Halloween.
She hadn't gotten very far when
she realized, in all of her excitement,
she may haven taken a wrong turn.

She walked up to a glittery black tree
filled with friendly creatures.
"excuse me...
can anyone tell me the way to
Halloween party?"
much to her dismay,
they could not point her in the right direction.

a little while later
Madame Lulu Spooklita
came across a charming dollie
taking a ride on her white rat.
"Are you looking for the big
Halloween Party as well?" asked
Madame Lulu Spooklita.
But the dollie was in such a rush,
she rode right on by without
even a word.

uh oh.
she was starting to worry.

Just then something
shiny caught her eye.
she went off to see what it could be.
it was a grumpy old skeleton
(who happened to be snoozing)
with a pile of treasure right in his lap.
Madame Lulu Spooklita was
very tempted....
but of course Madame Lulu is a lady.
and ladies do not STEAL.
She resisted temptation
and got back on the path.

Walking, Walking, Walking.
and getting nowhere.

Madame came across an old friend...
Sir Skelly Bones III.
She sat with him for awhile
as they caught up on all the latest news.
Sir Skelly Bones III
told Madame Lulu how lovely
she looked.
She politely thanked Sir Skelly.
He was really quite the gentleman.

Sir Skelly Bones III
was a gentleman...but not
very good with directions.
"hmmmm, the Halloween Party?
I think you take a left at the licorice
So Madame Lulu Spooklita was
back on her way.
and took a left at the licorice posts....

which lead right into the path of a
frightening mummy!
get out of my yard!!!"

Madame Lulu ran as
fast as her little striped tight legs
could take her back to the licorice posts.
And this time she took a right turn!

A wise old owl
sat next to a sign that
encouraged her she
was headed in the right direction.
ooooh she could almost
taste the candy corn!!!

Madame Lulu was in such a candy trance
that she ran right into
Madame Pumpkin Lady.
"Madame Lulu!
Look where you are going!"
exclaimed Madame Pumpkin Lady.
"oooh I am ever so sorry
Madame Pumpkin Lady!
How do you do?
I'm on my way to a Halloween Party
and it seems I have lost my way."

The great pumpkin let out
a laugh! "well, follow me!
It's right this way!"

Madame Lulu Spooklita
made it to the Halloween Party!
She was the happiest gal
in all of the woods!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Madame Lulu is thrilled
to have shared her wee adventure with you.
sooooo thrilled that she has a special
leave a comment and you could win
an original noodle and lou studio
halloween me! jenn!
It is a wee 4 x 4 inch square canvas
and would be an adorable addition
to your Halloween decor!!
I will draw a winner the morning of Tuesday,
October 21!
Please make sure if you do not have a blog
that you leave me some way to get in touch
with you if you are the WINNER!!
Thank you to our lovely hostess
make sure to peek at all the other parties going on

p.s. Frightening Mummy was made by an extremely talented
8 year old boy named Jake...that happens to be my son:)
And my boys are completely disgusted
that I have once again made our big family pumpkin into
a girl;)

Hi Jenn! Just now stumbling in from ALL the parties! My feet are killing me, and I ate way too many sweets. But I did play a few good tricks, mmuuuwwwaaaaahhhhaa..I bet you didn't even know I was at your party early in the evening? But alas, I got lost along the way, following Madame Lulu Spooklita! She's a bit mysterious that one....

I couldn't get to all of the partygoers over the weekend, but I follow your blog and when I saw the update I had to stop by and check out your party. It's delightfully frightful!

I guess Jake gets his talent from his mummy - LOL.

Happy nightmares,
Daydreamer :)
