Thump! Bang! Clatter! The hair rose on Ripley’s hackles as the eerie noises crashed towards us on the evening air. A deep growl began low in his throat, and his eyes focused on the back yard door. My heart pounding, I grabbed a lantern (since I was in a medieval-style role play gown, a flashlight was out of the question) and, with a pounding heart, I made my way into the darkness of the yard, my steadfast protector by my side.
Brave Beatrice at Your Service
Now, what I was going to do when I met the maker of the noises, I hadn’t the faintest idea, but it seemed to me I just had to investigate. At least I was elegantly dressed in my free Beatrice gown from AnaSTyle. Featuring puffed sleeves, a laced bodice, and a delicately embroidered long skirt, this beautiful formal frock is perfect for role playing or just strolling around looking lovely. The rich, red fabric and deep golden accents provided a vivid contrast to the white top. I’ve been attempting for a week now to win one of the Mini Mania Prizes at AnaSTyle, and also claiming as many of the Lucky Board prizes as I can. While waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I cammed around the shop, and spotted a Guess and Win game board. The lovely Beatrice gown is one of its many rotating prizes. All I had to do to capture this exquisite dress was to don my AnaSTyle group tag, and click tiles until I made a matching pair. The AnaSTyle group has a 50L join fee, but with all of the gifts, Mini Manias, Midnight Manias, group-only lucky boards, and game prizes up for grabs, it’s a worthwhile investment!

The Mystery Solved…
As I held my lantern up high to illuminate the yard, I caught a glimpse of our nocturnal visitor. Two glowing eyes stared worriedly back at me, while their hungry owner debated continuing to scavenge in the trash bin, or dashing off in a mad scramble. After a warning rumble from my fierce watchdog, the raccoon quickly decided on the latter, and made a hasty exit to the nearby woods. Breathing a sigh of relief, and making a vow to set out an extra bowl of food for our ravenous neighbor, I headed back inside with Ripley.
Here’s hoping you have a peaceful, safe evening wherever you are, Fabulous Readers. Until my next post, happy shopping!
