Let's go visit the witch's cottage.
Just beyond the (American) river and through the woods (ok the park). Hey that's my house! I started bringing out some of my Halloween goodies. The ones that aren't buried DEEP in storage. This wooden shelf is the best thing I found this year. It's from my favorite thrift store and I bought it for $4.98! It's heavy solid dark wood and it's perfect for my little displays.
Miss Fiona is my newest witchy. I found her at Home Goods this weekend!
Hmm...I think some of us might be spending our weekends there the next few weeks.
Fiona even has her own book! I love this little childrens book by Mark Kimball Moulton. I've had it since Sebastian was a little guy and each year it's one of the first things I bring out for Fall. Do you remember the article Country Living did on the author's house a few years ago? Oh he has the most magical red cottage and garden which was featured in their October issue. I'll have to see if I can dig it up.
Potions and spells by candle light. And the wondrous aroma
of pumpkin pie fills the witch's house.
As the witching hour nears visitors of the spectral kind
are drawn to the cottage in the woods. Do ghosts like pumpkin
pie I wonder?
Have a bewitchingly Spooky Monday!
Make sure to join Wendy at Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland
for lots more Spooky Mondays magic.
Wait I almost forgot! I wanted to show you this set of papers that I'm absolutely
drooling over. I didn't know they make them but it's just WONDERfully perfect.
Graphic45 makes this set of Halloween Alice in Wonderland papers!
I just realized they only sell wholesale but you
can also buy it here.
And here's the Country Living article on Mark Kimball Moulton's house.
