M & M's B & B

The following story is about two weary travellers who make a welcomed stop on their way to a Halloween party on the other side of the world… After travelling for some time Stanislav and Stephania came across a welcomed sign. Mirella and Malinda’s Bed and Breakfast Enchanting overnight and weekend stays Vacancy Mirella answered the knock at the door with her meanest face, in the hopes of scaring any potential trick or treaters but was pleasantly surprised to find the weary travellers and put them straight to bed.
While the travellers slept, Mirella and Malinda set about preparing their tea room to serve their guests a scrumptious morning tea.
The witchy sisters set about baking some ghoulishly gorgeous cupcakes only to find that their increasingly senile father had used all the eggs. First Mirella confronted him…
Did you eat all the eggs?
As usual the response was this…
Eggs? What are eggs? Then Malinda decided to get a confession out of him…
but that resulted in…
So Malinda had no other choice but to dash off to the local market to haggle for some eggs.
Mirella was most impressed with her sister’s speed and set about baking before Stanislav and Stephania awoke.
Before too long a batch of cupcakes were ready for sharing
and it was time to wake the guests. Quietly and gently the sisters entered the guest room and invited them to join in a tea party.
The travelling skeletons welcomed the company and were famished from their long trek. Malinda poured the tea
While Mirella told them what was on the menu this morning
The cupcakes were delicious; Stanislav chose one with a chocolate spider on top and recommended that Stephania do the same.
The travellers ate their cupcakes and enjoyed a long chat with the witchy sisters. They spoke of the good old days when brooms were made of straw and spells couldn’t be bought on eBay. However all good things must come to an end and it was time to say goodbye. The ghostly chocolates gave them the energy to move on and continue the long journey to the other side of the world.
Goodbye Stanislav and Stephania it was nice to have met you, please tell others of our hospitality and good luck with the rest of your travels.
As Mirella and Malinda were congratulating themselves of a job well done two more guests arrived. Prunella and Gloria, relatives twice removed, wasted no time helping themselves to some of the devilishly tasty cupcakes and tea and proceeded to polish off every tasty crumb.
After the last morsel was eaten the sisters said goodbye to Prunella and Gloria, tidied their tea room and put the night light on in the hopes that they may entertain some more revellers on their way to a Halloween party….
Postscript: Even though this is a fictitious story, some of the names have a connection to people in our lives. My girls had so much fun setting this up and even though we would have preferred to have done a night shoot (our camera isn’t that great)the results were just as good. The photos came first then the story! I had to use all my brain power and imagination to make this story up, (this sort of thing doesn’t come naturally to us all) remember to click on the pictures to enlarge them and have fun. A big thank you to Vanessa for organising such a fun party, I can’t wait to see all the different posts. visit here to view all the rest Big noisy kisses mmmmwwwahhhh rosey

Anita said...

Oh Buddy that was such a cute story and I never would have guessed that Stanislav and Stephania were actually skeletons... I was expecting someone I knew. Oh our little witches are gorgeous and I wish so so much that they really could just hop on a few broomsticks and fly here to me for just a little while, come and see a few castles, fairland cottages and be home to you for dinner. I'm not that clever a witch to make that happen.

Love you all.

Your witchy sister, Anita

Lisa "Oceandreamer" S. said...
