Day Three of Spellbinding Tales:
Every year when the 12th day before Halloween arrives, Pippa Bellows hosts a series of magical events at her home in Waverly Hollow. She transforms her whole barn into a glowing pumpkin where magical carved beets, turnips and gourds hang from every nook and cranny.
As you know last two nights were filled with transformation potions, secret hideaways, magical gardens coming to life and herb guides, all to celebrate this years Halloween Festivities. Night five was called Potionology 101and night six was Cauldron's Run.
During last nights festivities I met flower and herb guides, Violet Brumme was my favorite, her hair was just so beautiful and her voice filled with love. She shared her rarest purple plant spell and the best way to care for our flower friends during the year.
At 11:30pm we were greeted by the forest guide herself, she is Queen of the forest and works closely with Titania the Fairy Queen to help protect all the creatures of nature and the outdoors. She helped host the nights star shower. Pixies from all over the land aided in the magic shower that illuminated the night sky and called on every star in the universe for their glow and power.
Tonight we are all getting ready for the next event:"Pippa's Surprise Scavenger Hunt". Tonight all guest receive a scavenger hunt map which is hiding magical gifts in a variety of places. Some can be visible to the eye, others must be unlocked through special spells. Each person gets a map and 4 hours to complete it, in order to locate all the hidden clues, which lead to the grand prize.
We will each draw a star seed out of the magic pumpkin which will have a etched symbol on it. There are two of the same symbols in the magic pumpkin, the two matching symbol holders will be partners in the scavenger hunt. I drew the crescent moon symbol and so did Iris Crane, who will be my partner in completing the scavenger hunt tonight.
This map of clues looks so hard, glad there is two of us to try and solve it. Before heading out we will each receive a distress amulet, in case we find ourselves in trouble. Xavier Holdwright created the map, he is the Great Great Great Grandson of Marcus Holdwright, creator of Holdwright Maps and Explorative Games. He will be handing out the maps and our first clues complete in his Spider Fairy Cloak. The maps are secured in a lock and carry trunk.
Well I am off to Waverly Hall at the crest of the Conservatory to begin the hunt and festivities.
This is all I know of for now. I can only share some of the highlights from this point, I'll have more to share tomorrow! Wish us luck in completing the scavenger hunt.
Magic and Joy,
