When I left for work the other day, I accidentally left a window open.  I came home to find a witch party in my house.  They had flown in the window, stolen my brooms, and were all over the house.

They even brought the musical group, Cool Cats, to play for their party!

I guess this old hag has lost her broom-riding powers, so she rode in on a pig-powered cart!

If I wanted to try their spread on a cracker, I had to steal one of the witch’s shoes.  I’m glad they thought about covering my “not for food” plate with saran wrap.  I would have hated to have a bunch of sick witches in my house!

These pumpkin heads must have been acting up, because they were imprisoned under glass.
I wanted to try some of their food.  After all, it is MY house.  But every time I reached for something, it began to spin around, and those witches just cackled at me!

They even turned my clown into a witch!

Wow, you have so many things that your grandchildren must love it!! I especially liked your chandelier and the little figurines that you had hanging from it. They all looked especially adorable. I also loved those tarot cards - had never seen anything like them! With the playing card, plus the meaning/fortune on it...When you purchased them, what were they called? Anyway, Love them!

When you do a post like this, especially around the holidays, I find myself scrolling back and forth to try to see every detail. I realized this morning that it's kind of like being in a store full of goodies.

Hi Laurie ! Thanks for stopping over. I have been looking at your living room and it's lovely. What caught my eye was the striped chair in red and, I think Yellow or beige ? So sharp.
Every time I see your name I think of George Hamilton !!

Laurie, sorry to have been MIA of late. Between traveling and trying to catch up with LIFE, I've not had much time for visiting. So I've had the best time scrolling down through these posts. Love seeing your Quimper in the background and all your fun Halloween things. ;-)
