Witches' Flyby Part 3~ And a Tablescape or 2

Blog Labor 319

Part I  and II are here and here


Halloween is drawing nearer

These witches just can’t wait

To spray a can of shaving cream,

On Martha, Bill and Kate!!


They huddle close to stir their brew

And mix up a double whammy..

They hide the dishes from Christine…

And steal spray paint from Kammy!


Fiberdoodle, Rhoda and Jewel,

Don’t escape this naughty caper..

They awake to find their cars

Wrapped up in toilet paper!


Spider Soup for Florida Sue,

Toadstool stew for Chandy

Jewel, Martha, Pat and Leigh

Get warty LIVER candy..


Their tummy’s badly need some food..

They tie on their witchy bibs..

Have a Perfect Bite at Mary’s

And at Gollum’s have Prime Ribs.


Still more mischief up their sleeves

They burp and screech with glee,

Throw smoke bombs at Karen

Brenda  and Ellen B!


They think they are hilarious

Fly off and  hoot and giggle

Tammy and Ceekay get hit next,

With slimy worms that wiggle!


Their manners are atrocious

Miss Janice would just faint,

Michelle, Cathy and Mary Rose,

Get covered with green paint!


Water balloons are dropping

On Bill and Dining Delight

Butter Yum, Jen and Katherine

Got very wet tonight..


A quick flyby at HOLIDAYS,

To see Luvs, Jay and Jane,

Karen whacks  them with a broom

Betty hits them with a cane!


This crazy jaunt’s now over

They stop and have a beer,

And craft a list of Bloggers,

They plan to trick next year!

  37. Your tablescapes are always so beautiful and you find the best accessories.

    Happy Halloween Kathleen!

  38. Cute tables! Love those polka dot napkins & that big see through witch hat! The cauldron centerpiece is nice too!

  39. Love both tables and the poem was fabulous.

  40. What a wonderful series of posts, Kathleen. I love them all. Your black and white table is a knockout, especially your littlel white covered pumpkin soup bowls. You are so very talented.

  41. Love your black and white Halloween table. Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

  42. Kathleen, your witches do get around ... Love your trilogy, very fun.

    How cute is all that candy corn! ... I love anything candy corn. I have those same candles and also have some several hand-blown glass candy corns that are really cute. (I need to get them out.) Candy corn is so festive and just says Halloween to me.

    The black and white is fun yet elegant, IMO. The cutouts in the tablecloth really add to the entire theme.

  43. Another beautiful and creative table setting, Kathleen! I love the little witches hats, the decorated light fixture and, most of all, those cute white pumpkins.

  44. You are very creative and I love the poem, almost as much as your tablescape - it's wonderful.

  45. Kathleen, you are definitely Miss Creative...poems and tablesettings. Always pretty tablescapes!

  46. That poem is just too precious for words! You should get some of those published. The cadence is perfect: how many poets can actually achieve that? And so, so creative. As is your lovely table. I don't know which to gush about where. LOVED the polka dot napkins you made. The table is just Halloween decadent and fun! Beyond fun!

  47. Oh my but it all looks spooky and cute and the poem is so clever. Can you believe that I am at the hair salon with color on my head sitting in the window typing this along with two other gals who have foil on their heads. We are all wearing the black capes so we look like 3 witches. Very upscale witches hair salon I am visiting today. Care to join me? Just get on your electric broom and zoom on down to Hotlanta. Happy Halloween to you and yours and hope you get lets of treats! Gotta go as they are calling me for having the hair waxed off my wart on my nose right now:)

  48. Oh I just love the poem and will be sure to put snapping turtles by my car (ha).

    You are so creative! I just love your table as well - pretty, pretty!!

  49. what I love the best is the little cuties hanging from the light!!

  64. Hi Kathleen,
    You are the best...that was the cutest poem and your table is to die for. I love the black and white and all your special little details. I always enjoy your tables and todays (I am late, I know) is no exception. I feel so special to be included in your poem.
    Funny witch story. I think those witches flying around your house must be mine. Mine went missing this year (so sad for me)... so they must have flown over to your house...I just hope they show back up at my house next year. At
    least I know they had a great time.
    Enjoy your day, and your food looks amazing.
    :) Maryrose
