The Cottage Witch

Is in the garden...

Conjuring up

A majic spell...

If you would like
 to join her

You just need 
to ring the bell...

She will make you
 something proper

Something you won't 
soon forget...

Just take a little sip

You will be
 forever in her debt...

this you must remember

Every time the
 moon is full...

The Cottage Witch 
can do no harm

It's all just
 a bunch of:


A little something extra...

I received this 
beautiful piece of embroidery
 from Tina at What We Keep
 How gorgeous is this?

 I can't wait 
to put it in a pretty frame and 
display it at Christmas time...

...she also included 
this lovely piece of vintage linen
that she embellished 
with one of my favorites..a witch. 

 I think it looks fitting 
with my little Mousie morsel
 near by.

She had it all tied together 
with a piece of pretty blue ribbon 
and this beautiful autumn leaf. 

 Thank you so much, Tina. 
I love it all and
 will cherish forever.

Tim, Tami and Jake 
are always so thoughtful 
and sent us again this year 
a beautiful autumn arrangement 
in celebration of our 
56th wedding anniversary. 

 Thank you kids.
 It is so gorgeous and
 we love you.

We also got notification in the mail
 that next year will be 
our 60th high school reunion.


If that isn't scary enough for you, 
tune in next week, 
between the Moonlight and the Majic,
 for our last 
celebration of Halloween 
for the year!

 It also features Kai in costume.
