on this cold, dark and rainy All Hallow's eve....

wandering from room to room in the creaky old farmhouse,
Sukey makes sure that all
is well this dark, cold & rainy All Hallow's Eve.
The hour is late.
A good fire is crackling in the kitchen hearth & just one candle is lit.
The wind howls down the old chimney and blows billows of smoke out into the room.
a cold rain pounds against the old farmhouse & rattles the windows...
There came a knock at the old kitchen door.
It blew open with a great gust of wind and rain
sending a swirl of wet leaves into the warm & dark kitchen...
and with it came
visitors.....
please join Sukey at the old Deerfield Farmhouse
for a bit of All Hallow's Eve story telling
later today...

What a treat this will be my dear friend.
What sort of tricks does Sukey have up her sleeve?

It's so nice to hear from you dear Ulla,
The little Deerfield ladyes have been working so hard all summer and are happy to have an evening to gather with friends and tell stories by the fire.
I'm glad you could come & join us this All Hallow's Eve.

Such a delightful way to spend the Hallow's Eve, gathered round the fire watching the shadows dance across the wall, voices echoing through the room...
Your imagination is equalled only by your wonderful creativity.
I adore their period costumes.
I picked up a copy of the new Romantic Homes yesterday. Your article is lovely.
