Eat, Drink, and Be Witchy







There's a picnic 

in the neighborhood!




While out on a walk with Sadie

I noticed this pretty fall vignette across

the street on my friend Barbara's front patio.




Cleo must have overheard me

talking about how festive it all was.

She packed the picnic basket,  

gathered her friends,

and flew right over.




Greta was 

the first to arrive.




She swept off the bricks,

 and Mr. Barnaby, Cleo's Cat Friday,

unloaded the basket and set up the feast of treats.





Miss Tilly supervised to make certain

everything was prim and proper.




While Tiny Tilda 

just squealed with delight.




Mr. Pudge, never one to 

miss a sweet treat, flew in the minute

the goodies began to tumble out of the basket.




Even a few black crows 

flew in to partake.




Yes, this witchy group 

knows how to party.




Cleo even packed the best

of my Halloween dishes.




Special Quimper plates

created in 2010 in limited production.




You can read more about

these HB-Henriot plates and the inspiration for 

their designs in a previous post here.




Pumpkins, Ghosts, and .   .   .




Big Blue Bats!

Vintage noise makers 

to let the neighbors know  

there's a party going on.

These girls plan to

Eat, 

Drink, 

and Be Witchy!




~ A Word Of Advice From Tiny Tilda ~

"Life is short.

Eat the good treats first."




This gaggle of friendly witches 

are long time residents here at HFTS.

You can read more about their 

previous witchy soirees here, here, and here.






Pssst, 

Lean in closely.  

Greta has a little secret to share.


The Tommy Hilfiger fringed wool throw

 was a recent thrift store find for $8.

Now that's something to cackle about!
