Autumn Harvest: Fall Between the Pages Fall Blog Hop Tour


Hi!  My name is Minnie and I’m the owner of the Lilac Bower bed and breakfast. I’m so glad you stopped by on the Autumn Harvest: Fall Between the Pages Fall Blog Hop. I’m honored to welcome you to Joselyn Vaughn’s blog.  

First off, we have plenty of attractive young men here.  You don’t happen to be single, do you? If you are, my friends and I can fix you up. We've got plenty of nephews and sons between us. And if I do say so myself, we are very good at this.  Just don't listen to anything Mark says.

As I said before, I own a bed and breakfast.  It’s the best place to stay in town.  It’s in a big old house with a wrap-around porch and plenty  of room in the back yard for a pumpkin patch. Its romantic and eclectic atmosphere makes it appealing to everyone.  If you’re nice, I’ll even let you examine my porcelain cat collection.

I love autumn. It’s my favorite season.  Unfortunately it’s also a really slow season for business at the B & B. Everyone goes farther north for the color tours and that leaves me a bit tight for spending money. My nephew Mark tells me I need a new roof next spring and I need to raise some funds.

Well, this year I have a plan. I’m calling it Hauntings of the Heart.  I’m going to turn the Lilac Bower into a haunted house.  You know, like an actual house that’s haunted. Not with people dressed up as vampires and such. Creaky doors. Shuffling noises in the walls. Footsteps in the attic. Strange mists. Cold spots. (Note to self – get the password for the A/C system from Mark.) I’ve got one of those creepy sounds CD’s and my friend Edith is going to help. So if you want to stay in a haunted house, this is the place for you.

So if you could help me out and spread the word about the haunted house (and the attractive young men :-)); I’d love to be all booked up for October. I’ve got eight suites, so there’s plenty of room for your friends.

To see how my project is going, you can friend Joselyn on Facebook or follow her on Twitter. I'm hoping for lots of good news. 

You can read about some of my other adventures in CEOs Don’t Cry and Sucker for a Hot Rod.  Have a great tour on the blog hop.  I gotta go.  I can hear something dripping upstairs (and I don't have any guests).

Oh, before I forget.  You have to sign up for this CONTEST!!!  Well, you don't have to, but why wouldn't you? The winner gets a selection of Bath and Body Works lotions. Just leave a comment with your email address on this blog.  (If you have trouble leaving a comment, send an email to jvaughn@joselynvaughn.com and include your email in the message.)

  7. Thanks, Leanne109! Minnie has been so much fun to work with. I'm not sure if it was a good idea to let her play with my blog though. She can get into a lot of trouble. :-)

    Jennifer and Wendy, thanks for stopping by.

    @Aimee - So excited to hear that you read CEOs Don't Cry. They haven't had a wide distribution, so it's very exciting to know that someone has read it.

  28. Great post. I'm thinking that if she has the goodlooking men, the B&B will always be filled, lol. And of course they will be great to hold onto when "scared" in the haunted house.

  29. We LOVE staying in bed and breakfasts when we travel; the best way to meet folks and learn about the area. When we travelled to Scotland a few years back, that is all that we stayed in and it was awesome! I hope you are fully booked for October...a great theme!
