Today was a lazy kind of day. You know the kind where you just take it easy in the morning as if you didn’t have a care in the world.
As I began to think out what I might do throughout the day the list started to increase. Sew on my quilt, mow the lawn, work on a Thanksgiving banner. etc., etc..
Just wondering, do you do that? Make a mental list daily? I do. But no worries if it doesn’t happen. Just a phone call from a friend can change my plans in an instant. lol!
Today it wasn’t a phone call, it was a knock at the door.
Much to my surprise it was Gertrude, Witch Hilde’s cousin. She was out for a test ride on her new broom. A super fast model I might add.
How could I not see that she had dropped in for a spot of tea?
I pulled out this little topper that I just finished. Almost embarrassed to admit that I started it about 10 years ago. Yes, I made the witches, put it up and didn’t finish it till now. Can I get a hallelujah?
I urged her to park her broom next to my Nevermore cabinet. See it there on the right? Isn’t it a beauty?
I knew she had come dressed for tea. In her Halloween finest. A beautiful coffee filter bow on her hat along with glittery tuelle, pom-poms, and her spider friend.
it was adorned with scrabble words and tags of some of her favorite things.
Three pretty flowers were clipped to her flouncy skirt.
When she turned just right her skirt lifted and I spied this cute newspaper underskirt embellished with glitter.
Let’s light the candles to create a cozy atmosphere.
and pull out white teacups for this polka-dot tea.
If you ask me, polka-dots are wicked fun. I just love them!
Treats and tea for Gertrude and me!
A special little treat of licorice caramels. Find the recipe here: Wonderfully Wicked Treats
Before she left we took a moment to thumb through our ‘Witches Travel Guide’.
We talked about why we love Halloween.
And studied some of our potions and elixirs
We reminisced about last years convention,
and marked the calendar for this important date!
Hee-hee, you see even witches love tea!
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
