COSTUME PARTY OF THE YEAR
Oh my, I feel under-dressed!
It is such an honor to get to celebrate Sares' birthday with her today and to participate in the Blog Costume Party.
I searched and searched for what to wear. My first inclination was to wear something with a hat because I love hats and there are so many to choose from...but then what would I do for the rest of my attire????
Then I realized that I wanted to look like the elegant Queen Guinevere from King Arthur's court in Camelot. I have always loved Arthurian legends and fell head over heels in love with the musical, Camelot, when it first came out. Even now, many, many years later, I know all the songs by heart.
Here is a picture of my wonderful Arthur's castle.
I finally settled on this wonderful gown. It is simple, but very elegant and I believe would even be comfortable. A queen has to mingle with all of the guests when she appears at other's parties.
Come on into the castle and look around before we have to leave to attend Sares' event.
I wanted to make sure that you met the whole court, including my wonderful Arthur.
Now, as we travel to Sares' magical party, I offer a birthday toast to her and all the guests. Enjoy your time at the party and be sure to visit all the other party-goers through the link on Sares' site.
I am so blasted mad at Merlin!!!!!! I have been trying to get to this party all day and he seems to be short circuiting again with his spells. I can see, hear and even smell the wonderful cakes that Teresa brought. Sare's table is divine. But, here I am suspended in Camelot blogland. I can't for the life of me find Mr. Linky and can only blame Merlin. Arthur used to talk about all the spells Merlin did when he was younger. I think he has me suspended in time. Drat, it all, I demand to get to go to this party in person. It is not enough to just watch and hear.
MERLIN, where are you and Mr. Linky?
I just had to come back to edit and add that evidently it wasn't Merlin's fault. I should have gone ahead and posted my costume on my site. I didn't have to find Mr. Linky. Sares had all of our names and links already on her site for the party and all we had to do to meet everyone was to click on their names. Arthur is always telling me, "Jenny, keep an open mind about Merlin." I guess he is right, I should have given him the benefit of the doubt. But, I was having daydreams of all the festivities. I could see and here, but didn't realize that they could click on my site as soon as I put it up.
Thank you Sares for the fabulous costume party. Happy birthday! It was an honor to share it with you.
Two months until Halloween!
