“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

Tea Party Under a Halloween Moon 2011

Greetings fellow witches!!Hope everyone is having an amazing Halloween weekend!
Let's join Anna from Frosted Petunias at her Witches tea party under a Halloween moon!
First, through the pumpkin patch

It's getting dark now... follow the lit pumpkins....

Oh look, here comes someone to help us get to the party

I think we're getting close, see the stars?

I smell something wonderful and sweet! It's a candy house!

Let's go inside and see what treats we can feast on...

I think I will have the magic cocoa

Oh! I think someone wants a sip...

Did you know there's a fortune teller here??
Want a peek into the future?Let's go outside to the gypsy tent...

Here she is!She looked in her crystal ball and told me that one of you is going to be the lucky recipient of a magical giveaway in two weeks!!!Yay!

Now, before we head back home lets pay our respects to the dead in honor of Dia de los muertos.
This is a shrine I created for my mother.

I'll leave a candle lit for her.

Thank YOU for joining me here tonight and many thanks to our witchy hostess, Anna.
Have a sweet, glittery, magical Halloween!!!

Halloween Tin swap

Wendy from Bliss Angels hosted an altered tin swap and she paired me with Karen from Karen's Monday Musings who lives about 15 minutes from me!! We met for lunch and talked and talked and talked!
She gave me my tin in a cute little drawstring pouch she made herself, she even included some delicious candy she bought from her recent trip to Germany, but, I didn't get a chance to photograph it:)

Inside was this gorgeous ATC she created..

This is the tin...

the inside...

and this is the one I made for her...
I decided to make it a shrine so I removed the lid completely.

Thanks to Wendy for hosting such great swaps!
I also wanted to add that I have a winner for the Practical Magic painting used the random number generator and it chose #24 Victoria, from Brushstrokes
