Yesterday was a hu-u-u-uge score day. I did some thrift store hopping for the grandkids, found lots of goodies, and also found a glass door cabinet at a local antique shop, something I've been trying to find for a couple years. And if that wasn't enough, I came home to a package from my mom. I called her up and told her I had two things to say to her. "Number one, don't send me any more stuff - I'm trying to pare down on my belongings!" and "Number two, I LOVE THESE LADIES!" A mixed message to be sure, but I can't help it. Sometimes she just sends great stuff.

Aren't they adorable!? I don't know which one I like best. I think I need to give them their own names. Anyone have any ideas? This first one is really sweet, in a homespun wool dress and the cutest green hair, holding tight onto her little ghost friend. Hmmm, I think her name is Mossy, because of her hair.

The other witch is..... not grumpy exactly. I can really identify with her expression. A bit frustrated, a bit exhausted. She wants to get on her broom and fly away, maybe someplace tropical, but there are pumpkins to water and crows to be fed and she's head of the planning committee for the next full moon gathering and..... sigh, she'd fly away but, frankly, she's to tired to even try.

Here's a close up. See, she's not a scary witch, just an overworked one. She's a crone with soft gray hair and yet she's not afraid to flaunt her stuff - check out the flamboyant cape and feathery, bright orange cuffs on her dress. I should probably name her crow (and the ghostie above) as well.
