A Fanciful Twist Halloween Party 2014! Welcome to the Witch's Lair & Giveaway

Welcome my little witches and wizards!

Prepare to feast your eyes upon a genuine witch's lair.  Spells, potions, crystals, candles, books and broomsticks!


A magic wand, some runes, tarot, a crystal ball.


Broomsticks, staffs and skulls!  A quill and some ink for writing your spells.


Mr. Glitter the skeleton greets you on your visit.


A fireplace, a witches hat, a haunted house.


A Jack o' Lantern lit up to guide your way.


The witch is casting a spell!  She is blessing the crystal as it passes through the flame.


I wonder what sort of spell I *cough cough* SHE is conjuring up.


Oh my!  What are these potion ingredients.  Poison nettles, genuine snake oil.


Vampire fangs, witches tears, blind worm serum.


Wool of bat, witches wart, rat fur extract.


Graveyard dust, flowers of belladonna.  A sleeping draft for an overly ambitious lover perhaps?


Powdered spider web, dragon's blood!


Hats and cloaks and brooms!


A pinch of fairy dust and the rarest black of cat.


I hope you enjoyed this wee tour of my witch's lair this Halloween.  Please hop over to A Fanciful Twist to visit Vanessa and the other partiers.

P.S. I will be out of town this weekend seeing my queen Stevie Nicks in concert. I will be making my blog party visits on Tuesday!

Hope you enjoy the concert as much as we're enjoying our walk through your gallery of delicious images. The candles really give everything a mystical quality. Though my favorite is easily the "witch corner" with the broom and Keep Calm sign. A real treat! While I'm not entering the giveaways, best of luck to those who do. And thank you for sharing this, you clearly put a lot of effort into making your magic for this wonderful blog party. Happy Halloween. And warm wishes.

What a delightfully spooky collection of conjuring! Your potions sound quite frightening to be sure, but your witches den is quite wonderful!

Thanks for stopping by The Marmelade Gypsy during the party!
