When Witches come to tea...

The witches are arriving
It's a wonderful sight to see

How about you?
Will you be ready?

When the witches come to tea.

They come from all directions
You can hear them from afar

They park their brooms

But you can't tell
Exactly where they are.

They swoop down at your table
Never knocking at the door

You'd never know they'd been here
As they've never come before.

They are very still and quiet
Not scary in the least

Their manners are impeccable

And they thoroughly enjoy the feast.

So do what you are able

Stoke the fire
And fill the pot

'Cause when witches come to tea

They like it nice and hot.

The Cottage Witch
October, 2015

Is your kettle on?

All china and tea pot from Home Goods
Napkins and napkin rings from Pier One
Witches concocted by The Cottage Witch

The witches are sharing tea today with:

Be brave.

Drop by and share a cup
with the other witches.

Put a little magic in your day.

Thank you,
 for conjuring up
 this delectable occasion.

The table settings are fabulous - love the whole thing. Now I'm off to visit more witches. Be sure and watch for my witches on Wednesday Wee Ones.
