Step into my parlor, and let me tell your fortune.
May I offer you some refreshment?
Go ahead.  Drink it up.  It’s my special brew, made especially for you.
No, of course the room isn’t moving. Are you feeling ill? Come on over and sit down
Let’s just see what the Tarot cards have to say.

Um, um, well, maybe we don’t want to know what the cards are saying.  We’ll have a look inside my crystal ball.
Oh dear, my ball isn’t so crystal clear tonight. What? You’re still dizzy. Okay, let me just pour you another glass of my special brew. 145
You just sit back and relax.  I hope you’re feeling better now.
No, there is not a chill in here.  You must really be ill.  My house is perfectly comfortable.
Yes, I do have a helping hand holding the page from my Mother’s scrapbook (circa 1920).
No, I don’t have spiders in my house.  Those are coasters.  I fear you are becoming delirious!
Oh good!  I’m glad you’re feeling better.  I do hope you’ll come for a visit when you aren’t so under the weather.
I can be rather bewitching.  I just know we could have a devilish time playing with my grandmother’s tarot cards.

Thank you for coming to visit.  Next time you stop in, I’ll be sure to fix my special brew again.  I’m linking to Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life.  laurie

Maybe I should offer a Tarot reading as my 500 followers give away. You've given me a great idea.

Wow! I just put out my first Fall decos, very few, and here you are all ready for Halloween! You give me a complex!

Lol!! Nope I'm feeling fine! Can I have another glass of that brew? It must have the opposite effect on me *winks* Oh and do you have any eye of newt cookies? Perfect with a brew (or two) lol! Vanna
