Fabulous post! When my daughter was little, one of her favourite movies (animated) was Kiki's Delivery Service about a little girl witch. I think she genuinely wanted to be one. -Jenn

I have to choose the swing set as my favorite.
Thanks for getting me in the Halloween mood.

Marie Smith said...

Love the swing set made for a witch!

Busy Bee Suz said...

The first tweet was hilarious and the "swingset" too!! Happy Friday

laurie said...

That twin engine one and the swing set one will make me smile all day ! Have a great day Deb!

Lady M said...

Just cracking up over bi-hexual and the mobility device. Also, that label on the Sabco broom is priceless. Thanks for a great post Debra.

DEZMOND said...

That double broom could sell like hot cakes, imagine how quickly you could sweep the yard with it!

I assume that crystal ball will run Firefox? And it better have a good antivirus, in case you spend a lot of time on the Dark Web.

And I'd think any decent grimoire nowadays would include a spell for conjuring pizza.

I like where this is going, friend D :) I'm head over heals in … Broom, cauldron and all :) Much love, cat.

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

The broom with the disclaimer? Priceless.
And I wanna BE the witch in the second illustration. So awesome.

XoXo

My cauldron is a slow-cooker... hey, it works! Perfect for rainy weather.

Old Lurker said...

I'm so confused. I thought this post was going to be about witches, not shoes??

Magaly Guerrero said...

I want the swing set and the wheelchair!

pam nash said...

I'm right with you on all counts! Lets see - cauldron (check) crystal ball (check) cats (check) have to work on the broom - mine is a not suitable for . . . type.

Rain said...

Love the swing set! I want to get a big old cauldron when we move and have it permanently set up outside!

Ol'Buzzard said...

I am sure my wife has all the necessities. Our house is decorated and she is constantly whispering to the cats.

Martha said...

HAHAHA! Love this one. Sign me up for anything witchy :)

Professor Chaos said...

Maybe you can help me with this. Years ago, I heard a song that went something like "Thank you, Mother Mary, but I prefer to remain a witch." I probably have the words wrong, because I have never been able to find it. I don't know the singer. Any ideas?

anne marie in philly said...

bi-hexual - HA!

mshatch said...

I have the cat...
:)

Adam said...

Daisy was a witch once, and she gets back into character every time she gets mad at me.

Parnassus said...

Hello Debra, That first one really got me! How many times have I clicked away from a blog when it started talking about which earrings went with which darling dress. Now I have an inkling of what was really going on!

Joanne Noragon said...

My wheelchair is long since retrofitted.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Professor Chaos -- I'm sorry, but that lyric does not ring a single bell in my memory. Perhaps one of my readers will recognize its source? If so, please leave a comment to solve this witchy mystery!

Bea said...

The twin engine joke made me LOL.

Fundy Blue said...

Terry happened to look over my shoulder as I was reading this ~ He loves that sexy witch on the tree branch against the moon. I'll take one of those t-shirts please! Another great collection of laughs before I head to bed! I love your October posts!

baili said...

Rommy said...

Woo-hoo, sign me up! And set me up with one of those snazzy twin engines too. I need extra room for my corgi.

Vivian Swift said...

I want that T-shirt, so I've been looking on line. I might have to make do without the purple sparkles, damn.

Old Lurker: very funny.

NanaDiana said...

LOVE it! I have a huge witch hat sign on my office wall that says in sparkly letters- The Witch Is In! They tell me it is perfect and after October I could change the W to a B. Smart asses! lol xo Diana

Miss Val's Creations said...

Oh I love the cat on the broom! That is such a feline thing to do. That is a brilliant re-purposed swing set.

Guillaume said...

Funny, I blogged about witches no later than tonight.

Ur-spo said...

These are marvelous.

Are you aware of the Bullwinkle and Rocky version of Hansel and Gretel?
In it Gretel helps the Witch learn to ride a broom. "After all " she says' there's a little witch in all of us girls"

Sakuranko said...

Oh so cool darling

Photo of a cat on a broom has made me laugh: D

The Blog Fodder said...

Love this. Am stealing several of the pictures for later use.

JACKIESUE said...

dbs said...

Wiccapedia, lol.

Bill Lisleman said...

Bewitching - I like the cartoon about ordering pizza that I stole it.

Professor Chaos said...

Oh well, it was worth a shot. Maybe I dreamed this song.

Magic Love Crow said...
