Naughty Witches~Ghostly Tablescape Thursday

The Witches Fly By..Part II

Part I here….



The four naughty witches,

Go soaring  through  Blogland,

Stop to haunt Cathy, Alma and Cass

To see what they have planned.


Cindy offers poisoned apples,

Now that's a treat they covet!

Marty gives them a lovely CLOCHE

With a skull inside..they love it!

They head down south to visit those gals,

Hotlanta Joyce, Deb and Sue

They stop for a song at Shelia’s

Then throw eggs at  Barb’s house too!


All this zigzagging is taking its toll,

Too much for these witches to handle.

They take a nap on Susan’s porch,

And swipe a Colonial candle!  :)


“Let’s go visit Blondie !”

She never is a grouch

Then stop off in Ohio,

And check out Sue’s new couch.


“We must  not forget dear Canada!”

They flew up North with glee

Threw bags of flour on the homes,

Of Nana and Lori E!


Tonight’s fly by is over,

Their brooms are losing torque..

They crash for now, to rise again

From Kathleen’s in New York…

The final fly by next Thursday…they could be headed your way!


Joining Susan for Tablescape Thursday…Please stop over Between Naps on the Porch to see some wickedly wonderful tables…

Here’s my table…I think it’s BOO tiful! Maybe not, but the gkids would love it!

The ghost was a gift from my friend, Ellen.

    You're are the poet laureate of the blogging world, AND definitely never at a loss for words. ... The dinner and the creative naming are definitely perfect for this holiday season.

  38. How cute is that. Flour on my house? As long as I don't have to do any baking with it.
    You really traveled around with this one. Good job.

  39. Well that is the cutest little post! I love your witchy collection. :)

  40. Hi Kathleen,
    Love your post..I the sisters of your 3 witches. As always your food looks devine and love the table. Thanks for the visit.

  41. Oh Kathleen, You are just so clever!!! I wish I had my new couch to show you. You'll have to settle for a picture of the style I want in another color and fabric. I'll post it soon with some of the other goodies we got for the store. I had such fun, and my feet only hurt for one day. I wore flats, but they killed my big toes. At the end of the day, I took them off, sat myself down, and downed a beer to relax. LOL

    Thanks for including me in your poem. I love your Halloween table decor and your menu items!
    xoxo Sue

  42. Kathleen,
    Love your witches, and yes my napkin rings would have fit right in with your table, it was just tooo cute! Thanks so much for stopping by.

  43. YES! I finally got thru to your blog (see my email.).

    Hahahaha... I love that you sent the witches flying my way! that must have been the wind I felt when I was taking Mr Dion for a walk this morning.

    Adorable post...and that table? Yes, Kids would love it, but so do I!!!

    Now -- GET BETTER. There's a big ol' bag of onions waiting for you on the North Fork!

  44. Another fun rhyme! You are so smart! I've never seen poems on your blog before. Does the medication cause you to rhyme your words? I think we could have joined tablescapes today and had a ghostly black and white party! laurie

  45. Oh my goodness, Kathleen! I just love your creativity. Your poem is wonderful and I love all your ghosts! I have been around but just been too busy. My stepdaughter with her 3 little kids are visiting and they are leaving tomorrow so I will have more free time soon. Glad to hear from you...Christine
