Decorating Wightwick

Between the music school and things at Norm's, I haven't been good about updating this blog lately. Sorry about that.

Yesterday, Aspen and I started on the Halloween decorations at Wightwick Manor. For the big Halloween party we pixie types are having there. 


We were not alone... SPOOKY!!! Giant hand!!! 


I actually found that incredibly creepy. Aspen wanted to know if we could hire him for the party. *shrug* I guess she's harder to creep out than I am. That's cool. 


It's easy to forget just how BIG Wightwick Manor is until you have to put decorations all over it. We're mostly focused on the downstairs and we kind of don't want pixies wandering around upstairs during the party.


There's no reason to. We'll have lots to do, and we've even got a live band coming. We got the stage lights set up, now we just need the stage. Hmm. 


It was pretty late at night by the time we stopped, and we have to go back this morning to finish fixing it all up, but it's coming together.

Aspen also told me, that she had something to show me at Norm's. Kind of a secret, that she hadn't told anyone in the Wylde Kingdom about, but that she thought she should show me.

That sounds mysterious. I'll let you know as soon as _I_ know what it is. More coffee and then we're off to finish decorating.

Later!

  1. Sounds like it will be a wonderful party. You girls are working very hard, but I'm sure it will all be worth it.

  4. Ah ha! Secretz be good. Aspen can tell me, I'm good at keeping secretziz. The Manor is already looking good for the party. Miri, do you have a History of Wightwick Manor? Like the History of Hogwartz? It's such an amazing place that I wonder it doezn't have a few ghosts of itz own. And that huge hand? I wanted to nip it. Not quite a bite, just a nibble, but the Guardian frowned when I mentioned that. *snigger*

  5. Hey Bama! Thanks! I hope everyone will have a good time. We had a Christmas party there last year, but I think more pixies are coming to the Halloween one this year. It might be a pretty big deal!

    Thanks, Randomfish! I hope so. I want everyone to enjoy it.

    Hey Plushpussycat! Thanks! :) And I'll let you know as soon as I do!

    LOL NyXyz! I can see you as a very good secret keeper. A history of Wightwick Manor... well, it does have A ghost. But I think all the pictures got wiped out in the great blog debacle. I think the only blog entry left about her is when she got so scared by the movie people at Norm's that one time - http://www.mirandawandering.com/2011/09/movie-people-at-manor.html

    Harley saw her, but I don't think anyone else has. Though Lacrymosa "sensed a spirit". But she's a bit of a Whackadoodle.

    Anyway, I think that's the only ghost. It's a big enough house you'd think there could be more, but just one is probably plenty. :)

    And I wish you'd been there to nip that great big hand. It freaked me out!

  7. I think it'll be a good time, Maria. I hope so. And there'll be a bunch of pictures. Madera, our pixie photographer, is coming and all the pixies in the Wylde Kingdom are pretty excited. Some of them are already wearing their costumes, just trying them on. C&M has served coffee to BatPig, and princesses and there's going to be a whole coven of witches at this thing just judging from the costumes I've seen. I'll let you know how it goes! Promise!

    And I wish you could come too, but I have a feeling you're too tall. Sorry. :(
