"Crafting Blooming Howls" 2014

Our Jack arrived suddenly several months ago.  He had found his way out of a dense damp northern Ontario forest, to hitch a ride with a passing transport truck. Barely rolling to a stop, the trucker tossed Jack out into
crazed traffic. Tumbling frantically Jack finally gained balance and swaggered to the first house he spotted.
Yes?   The dishevelled stranger collapsed and I gathered Mr. BagOBones up and into the warm living room.

Several months had passed and Mr. BagOBones had endeared and entertained daily, helpful without cause.
One day Mr. BagOBones clamored into the craft room with a wondrous sized package!  The regal stamp
had me smiling and ripping apart the wrapping.
Plopped down in shear joy I have a most sought after Sheffield Muse of my very own!  Mr. BagOBones was struck, solidified, dumbstruck, In Love.

This poised delight must have a name, one that tingles on the tongue, tickles the ears and lights up all who
speak it.......... Miss.Epiphany Foreboding........

Introductions followed, the room fell silent.  I excused myself and left these two curiously gazing at each other and I filled with giddy fortune.  

Let the magic begin......................

"Epiphany, may I offer you a seat and a night cap"?  said Mr. BagOBones
Confused with the wording, she took a seat, as the candle was lite and the purple beverage from the
extraordinaire tea pot was served.  Sensing her unease, "Please, call me Jack"

"Mr. B...Jack, I am very please to meet you, call me Epiphany".  Calm restored and comfort setting in
conversation built for hours. Sharing tales, interests and preferred enchantments.  Splendidly different
yet endearingly familiar the magic builds and these two are entranced forever.

"A peculiar new world, exciting beginnings and meeting someone empty headed without a plan .....perfect"!
whispered Epiphany.
 Devilish grin and eager energy, Jack stumbled for an equally endearing remark.... That's it!
"Singleton nevermore, mysterious dame to gaze upon, soulless without blame.........perfect"!
smirked Jack.

I was eager to begin my day with my Sheffield muse and craft the most admired offerings.  On the table, with
my treasured "Courting Tea Set"! was the most vibrant of greetings.

"Thank you for your hospitality and helpful efforts, I have found my one true love and I must  bid you farewell"!  respectfully, Mr. BagOBones

Knowingly, I slipped into my comfy rocking chair and sighed..
....this is not
                                             THE END!

Howling Hallow Eves Gratitude to................

my kindhearted and loving Sister for illuminating my home with Halloween Warmest Wishes!
Daydream Believer Gina for gifting me Epiphany to brighten each day!
Gaslight and Gilt Rhissanna delicate, unique, and now beloved "Courting Tea Set"
                             and to   O U R
