Here's a couple of new Witches of West Windlewood, Izzy and Ella, dropping by to cast a spell or two!
This was a fun vintage photo to stumble upon. As most of my projects finish...I started out with somewhat of a foggy idea how this witch duo would go.
Sometimes there ends up too much void space that must be filled so. In Izzy and Ella's case a space was filled with a twisted and decorated message of the season...Boo!
Boo...such a curious word...I love it! I just discovered ribbon in orange and black with the little word on it. wheels are turning where I can put that.
I have a few of these sitting on my table and they make me smile... :) Working with vintage photos is becoming a great pleasure for me. I will be adding these little girls to the windlewood collection later today.

New Witches of West Windlewood! Meet Tabithinia.

I had a ball creating these little witches! I've been collecting just the right characters from vintage photos, that's why it's been a little timely to finish. Some just seem to pull off the witchy look don't they! I will be adding to this collection throughout the year. The Beeswax moon assemblage is created entirely from plain old stuff! The moon is my pattern design cut from foam, carved and paper mached with book print. The finish is painted and rubbed off to expose the book, covered with a soft fragrant beeswax with just a touch of mica and glitter. Tabithinia is fastened to the moon with wire and a vintage button. Her original designed pumpkin ribbon banner's message is Happy Haunting...of course. Special features also include hand crafted tall button paper clay shoes on wire legs, silk primitive ruffled petticoat, cotton hat, hand butchered bow, and wooden disc marking the festive day all resting atop a wooden pedestal.
