The Witches Are In!

Hello, my little lovelies. 

 Glad you stopped by.

The witches are in and accepting guests!

Hop in the basket with Cyrus,

We'll introduce you to some of our favorite friends.

There's always a jar full 

of candy corn this time of year.

Grab a handful and 

let's continue on our way.

No "snickering"!

Or "popping" in and 

out of the basket for more treats.

Matilda and Topsy 

will greet you at the door.

Miss Tilly is watching, 

so mind your manners!

Say hello to Cleo, who is known for her good deeds. She is a sweet, friendly soul who is everyone's friend. You can join her for afternoon tea here.

This trio loves to 

hang around together.

Meet Winnie and 

 her constant companions, Hootie . . .

And Ruffles.

Miss Agnes often sits around 

reading witch stories this time of year.

Pick your favorite and . . .

Gather round for a 

little story time with Greta.

Now aren't you happy you 

dropped by today?

Come back another time to meet all the black cats that roam around these pages.

  23. Sarah, I loved your "witches in" tour and took advantage of the candy as I read the posts. You have some cute whimsical witches and I love that you name them all. My favorites were Winnie and Hootie. I name my witches too -- who doesn't? Joni

  26. Hi Sarah,
    You have the best collection of witches that I've seen. Is Matilda a new addition to the gang, I don't remember seeing her before?
    Not panicking yet re the French strikes, hopefully all will be well on Thursday when we leave for the US.
    See you soon,

  27. Hi Sarah!

  30. Hi Sarah,

    What a wonderful collection of witches, hats and decorations!! I love fall...that green witch on the bicycle is so wonderful and fun! Hope you are enjoying all the great weather and fall days!!

  31. I need some witches. Where do you find yours? Love the one with the curled nose.

  32. What a fun collection! I love Winnie and Hootie :)

  33. I never thought witches could be cute and adorable, but they are! What a fun post! Loved it! Linda
    p.s. You commented about the dresses....my daughter made them....pillowcase pattern - love 'em, too!

  34. Sarah, you just amaze me with your decorating for all the holidays! Where do you find all of your cute things? I love that little pumpkin with the hat. SO cute!

    I have missed you and am happy to finally be blogging again. I hope to do at least one post a week if I can get my server to cooperate. We're having issues with the one in St. Augustine, and it is SLOW. It's not conducive to blogging. I have an air card, but I accidentally went Waaaaaaaay over. LOL!

    Sending you big hugs.


    Sheila :-)

  35. What a fun collection of friends you have! I have to say it's a toss up as whether Cyrus on that bike is my favorite, or maybe Matilda & Topsy~ what great names they all have! Your home around the holidays is definitely a "treat" with all your wonderful collections :-)

  36. You have such a cute collection of witches! I could not possibly pick a favorite they are all so adorable and whimsical. I will take a snickers though! LOL!

  37. How cute!! Bicycle Witch is my all time favorite, but I like them all. You made me "snicker" with your commentary! Grin.

  38. Wow, Sarah! It all looks awesome! How very fun.

    And, you cracked me up with the "snickering". That would be my husband's favorite part.

  39. Hi Sarah:
    What a great Halloween post today! I loved looking at all of your decorations.
    I'll email you to answer your wedding gown questions!
    Thanks, always, for visiting Brynwood!

  40. Sarah I enjoyed seeing all your wonderful Halloween decorations!

    I had a wonderful black cat for almost 18 years who was the smartest and funniest cat who ever owned me, and so I have a soft spot for black cats of all kinds :)

  41. What a wonderful collection! Love the names too! I hope they don't start hanging around with those naughty witches from my place!

  42. Oh Sarah,
    How cute your Halloween post is. I just love the pink of your bicycling witch with Cyrus. All of your displays are so cute.
    Cute, Cute, Cute!

  43. Honey I certainly am delighted I stopped by today. Oh how mad at myself if I had missed this post of yours. Too darn cute and loved every one of your witches. I do have to bring my granddaughter Kaci over here Saturday when she comes for a visit. She will love your pictures and of course your stories with them. lol
    Miss my visits and wish I could come by more often
