My love of Halloween comes from the creativity and fun I have had reading children's literature. I can still remember the first Halloween themed chapter book I read in grade school. It was called The Resident Witch by Marian T. Place. It was so different than other books because all the rules of human existence were altered. Creativity grew to new levels in each chapter. I will approach Halloween in this manner on my blog. I will have fun with it and think outside the box of my normal decorating and tablescapes in a childish way. So, if a witch had a tea cupboard what would she keep in it?
I can imagine she flew by some bittersweet vine in the forest and it got stuck to her broomstick. So she brought it home and used it to decorate her tea cupboard.
Leaves and even acorns get caught in her hair on her flights at night so she pulls them out and puts them on top of her tea cupboard too. Oh, and bats hang out in her lampshades.
She has been hard at work in her garden tending herbs for medicinal uses.
She keeps her milk and sugar on top of her book of spells along with some harvested pumpkins and some unidentified berries.
And at last she has her tea set on the ready for when unexpected guest pop in.
And of course she has a candle ready for when the lights go out. Which happens a lot around here.
