Halloween Party

Enter the Witch's Cottage
She welcomes you as part of the Halloween Party at "A Fanciful Twist". 
Please behold a witch's life...
full of black cats
and candles
more ghosts
little pumpkin friends
eery subjects
not explained
and magic.
Wicked...that is what they say she is.
But some say she's not so bad. Just don't make her mad.
Don't leave just yet....sit...she needs a better look at you...
hmmm...you'll do.

*edited October 22, 2010*
On a later post I show how I made this witch that lives in my living room.

DogsMom said...

This was intense! Like Twyla above me I need to linger and snoop. Since you are busy entertaining other guests you won't notice me looking in all the corners and under the stairs.

Melissa said...

What a wonderfully eerie party! Thanks for having me. Your decor is divine......

Have a spooktacular Halloween!

Momma Button said...

What a fun party!! I love all of it.

Unknown said...

where did you get that witch and where does she live for the other 11 months? I love her! And I love your mirror (with and without the bats)

Annabelle said...

This house is Spooky....by night! Adore your decorating style and taste....could easily be my own. The Witch and green pumpkins are really cool and that mirror....a vintage gem.
Oh and by the way, the story of "The Gift ", how sad and touching and a most dreamy cottage he left her with, a true token of love and memory; certainly a place to call home forever!

Having a draw for some of my Halloween art so if you like to pop over and drop your name in the hat that would be lovely.

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

She is spookily spectacular!

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

I love studying your images to see all the wonderful "feminine" elements you decorate with. Unfortunately, I don't get away with much of that at my cottage...with my "manly" man around.

By the way, did you make the door wreath, as well? It's wonderful!

Thanks for linking to my party. I look forward to seeing what you link up each week.

Hello Nita!
So nice to meet you through Joann's Vintage Halloween Blog Party! I'm new to your blog and have bookmarked it right away. You have so many fantastic Halloween decor and ideas I'm in awe! Coming from and living in Germany I'm not used to so many Halloween delights! That huge witch is totally amazing!
Sending you very spooky Halloween wishes!

★Carol★ said...

Forget Martha Stewart. YOU are the Queen of Halloween! I'm crazy about that wreath in the first picture, and everything else that you've done here. I can't wait to go see how you made that witch. Doesn't she scare the bejeezus out of you every time you come into the room?!!
Happy Halloween!

WhisperWood Cottage said...

As Carol above said, you are the queen of Halloween! Thanks for linking up to The "Autumn Décor" Talent Scouting Party at WhisperWood Cottage!
