The witching hour will soon be upon us
and there's no shortage of witches at 911.
Some uplighting, a little photo editing, and a black silk
witch hat turn the normally docile Henriheada into an evil presence.
Scroll back to the previous photo. Do you see how her eyes follow you?
I guess she is a bit scary even in the light of day!
My dressmaker's form wears a vintage 1950's Halloween cape.
The costume also comes with a black and yellow plastic skirt, but it's much
too big and resembles a lawn leaf bag. I don't mind lending her a black
skirt and camisole for a few short weeks. We are roomies after all!
Moons, and bats, and witches, oh my!
It's even got a hood........not that she'll be needing it.
The original box for the costume with the skirt inside.
This year I've got two new witches who are by far my most favorite.
Witch Finley and Warlock Mack.
Tracy (Crow's Feet Chic) asked me to email her a profile snapshot of each of our grandchildren.
She waved her magic wand, sprinkled some fairy dust, and turned Finley into a little witch
and Mack into a warlock! Aren't they adorable?! Thanks Tracy!
Maybe if you ask real nice, she'll post a tutorial for you. :@
I've printed these images out for our daughters and I'm going to print
black and white copies to use in a project for my Halloween decorating.
I almost forgot the smallest witch in residence.
This goofy looking witch was a gift from my sister and spends the
season standing among my antique brown bottles in the kitchen window.
The bottles are empty, but I often catch her looking at
them with a wistful look in her eye.
She loves to sing! In the middle of the night, I've awakened
to hear her cackling rendition of none other than
"99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall".
She has been looking a little green around the gills in the morning.
You've been a witness to just a few of the unexplained
phenomena that happen when you're not looking here at 911.
Just like Tom Bodett at Motel 6
I'm keeping the lights on tonight!
