Witch at Work

Hello my friends,
Halloween is just around the corner, so I must step into my lab and ready my potions for all Hallows eve.
 
The kiddies will be knock, knocking at our door and I certainly don't want to be unprepared!
 
Would you like to tour my lab?
 
I found this old metal address sign at a thrift for $2.  Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, just liked it!  It was the perfect addition to my lab.
One might say, that things are a bit 'spooky' at 1522.
 
 
This black cabinet has been sitting in my garage for some time now.  I have plans to hang it in my garden shed.  Didn't get started on it this year, so hopefully it will happen next spring!
 
The chippy paint made it the perfect
 witchy lab medicine cabinet!
 
 
I've filled the shelves with many of the special ingredients and books that every witch needs to help her accomplish her work.
 
 
Herbs were clipped from the garden and brought in to dry.  All good witches use natural ingredients in their potions.  :)
 


 
The vials and bottles are waiting to be filled. 
 
 


It's so nice to have my pets join me in my lab.





 
It's truly my little sanctuary!
 
 
 
Sometimes my patients leave feeling a bit faint and
looking a little pale.   hee-hee!
 

 
I scored this vintage medical cart at an estate sale in the Spring.  I knew I would have fun with it, but how wonderful is it for my witches lab?

 
For convenience it's located just inside my front door.
 
Really makes a gal, (I mean witch) happy!
 
if you'd like to check out my witches lab from last year visit
 
How about you?  Have you got your potions ready for all the little goblins that soon will be knock, knock, knocking at your door?
 
Happy Halloween!
Jann

 
 I will be sharing with these fun parties:

Jann I have said this before and will say it again. Your vignettes are fabulous. Oh my that cabinet is pretty awesome too. That will be transformed into something special in the spring I am sure. Happy Halloween.
