A Fanciful Twist....5th Annual Blog Party and a Giveaway...Updated!


I LOVE Halloween and this time of year is my absolute favorite! Trick or Treating, the costumes, the candy...what's not to love?



Batty Betsy and Trick or Treat Tina are ready for some Halloween fun....but wait, where is their little sister, Tabitha?


Here she is! She's dressed as The Littlest Witch for Halloween...


Tabitha the Littlest Witch is a bit of a wild child....she loves playing outdoors, collecting feathers and talking to her animal friends. This is her first year going Trick or Treat and she is very excited!






So much spooky fun!


Batty Betsy, the oldest sister, is hoping to make a new friend this year, someone who loves to celebrate Halloween all year long!  If you would like to be considered to give Betsy a new home, please leave a comment on this post by Friday, Nov 2nd telling her why you would be the best choice.....And the winner is.....JoAnne Balaz of VintageDragonfly! Batty Betsy will be going to live with JoAnne's doll Chuckie. I think there's romance in  the air!! Congats to JoAnne and thanks so much to everyone who played! xo


Thank you to A Fanciful Twist for hosting and thank YOU  for visiting! I hope you have a Happy Halloween!!

Omg-these dolls are just fabulous as is the post-oh that candy corn-trying to resist it-if I buy a bag I will eat the whole thing! Love the photo of the kitten with the witch hat!

Sim said...

Happy Halloween to you too!
You're living in a wonderful world...

JoAnne said...

Batty Betsy would be right at home with Batty JoAnne and her Halloween year round heart!
She could sit under the shade of my Halloween tree or hang out with a bunch of well dressed skellies...


Great post Kim! xoxo

Batty Betsy absolutely belongs with another Batty Betsy, lol. She and I could celebrate Halloween together as two of a kind.

those dolls are amazing! I would offer the best home because I have zombie dolls and mummy dolls with whom she could play with. Drop and you can see them for yourself....plus, I have a giveaway too!

Kyra said...

Fabulous party! I must admit, there is something about old dolls that i find awfully spooky in this context!

Rachel said...

Oh your dolls are fabulous, such wonderful witchy outfits they have. :-)

Terri said...

O.k....your kitty has my heart! What a sweetie!
All your dolls are amazing, and I love your post! You are totally inspiring me around Halloween! I did make a creepy necklace (which I posted about), but I haven't done anything else Halloween ish yet, I haven't even brought out my custom broomstick! Gasp! Must go find it and put it by the front door for a quick getaway. Oh, and your spooky pumpkins and treats are fabulous!
Hugs,
Terri

DogsMom said...

I can not believe it is time for Betsy to move out on her own, well not exactly on her own.
We would be willing to give her a room and feed her and keep watch over her. I have a few things to continue her education.

Wishing Tabitha much fun on her first Halloween trick or treating rounds!
I hope she does not get a tummy ache.

Rhonda Roo said...

Oh dear lord--first of all, SNOOKUMS is cracking me up!!! And that's good because I would need some way to burn all the calories that I would consume at your party. Those brownies are awesome, but there is just something about black-and-orange sprinkle cupcakes that sing to me. :) Your party goers are beautiful and your blog is fun (love love love that background, too!)

Happy Halloween....

BOO FROM ROO

Moonlyf said...

Delightful! If that is your cat posing there in the last picture, I am amazed. I can't get my cat to pose for me with any costume on.

Beautiful post art friend!! I can taste those delicacies right now. I just have to enjoy their charming enticing presence though...through the screen. Oh but I might have to make a trip to the bakery later. I just might...
I would love to live with your little dolly. I am offering a little dolly for my giveaway too. Drop by and leave a comment my dear. Hugs, Norma, x
p.s. spooky kisses to you

Love your dolls your kitty and YOUR Little owl too! All your goodies look so delicious! CHEERS!

Linda said...

Love the dolls and Tabitha is a cute addition. But I can't give Betsy the home she deserves. Just visiting to say hello and see what's new. Happy Halloween.

I was swooning over your pics and dolls, and then the kitten did me in.

I would faint from glee if one of your dolls came to live with me, why we have witches a plenty - all through the year. Fresh ruffled knickers daily, and and singing at midnight with greatedt of cheer.

Of course, we have our own broom shiner too - who takes care of all the pesky spplinters from unkempt brooms.

just to name a few things.

Loved your post!! Loved it!

Oh that kitty ---- I am beside myself with that kitty!

Thank you so much for being a part of this extra magical season!!

Sylvia Smiser said...

Oh My Kim! I love your witches and I would love to give Batty Betsy a good forever home! You see I am a Halloween artist and I do Halloween all year round. I like to surround myself with pieces that inspire me and I think Batty Betty would feel right at home here.
I even have a nurturing coven waiting for her.
I do hope you will come visit me too. It's not too late to enter my giveaway!

Hi Kim, How are you?
Wonderful party, thanks for the invite! I thoroughly enjoyed my visit :) ( please do not draw me for the giveaway...I rather see it go to someone who collects dolls...but she is awesome!)
