  1. I do hope I'm on the invitation list. Is one allowed to take home souvenirs? I spotted a couple that I'd rather like!

  2. Too much fun! What a fabulous interpretation of a fantasy party. Although I may find I need to stay home that evening and wash my hair (not that I'm nervous about how closely the guest list might be linked to the dinner menu or the goody bags. . . .)

  4. Oh how splendid. I love the photo of the family complete with an Afghan hound sporting a haircut to match the rest of the family members. Hilarious and you are quite right no one will be able to match the even or your stunning outfit. I presume Igor from Young Frankenstein will be your butler. I am totally envious. Regards Sue H xxx

  6. Oh, Jackie. This is delightfully unexpected! I chuckled all the way through. PERFECT. (And I bet you would look wonderful in that "snowball" suit.)

    I wish you a very very merry Christmas and all other festive winter holidays -- haunted or otherwise!

  7. The dancers are incongruous with the house. I like the house and would like to live there. I also would not want the fun loving faces, they would not be welcome. I like many things in the house including the tree. May be my theme for next year.xxx
