Wow! I woke up this morning and it isn't raining!!! What a shock! I was starting to wonder if it was ever going to stop! It certainly did look like Witch's Nite last night and we had a ball! Lots of great treats - cakes, pecan pie, cookies, caramel apples, candy and cider, and it was fun to see the customers!

Esmerelda, our resident witch, was watching over our main food table with her webby spinning wheel. They eyes glowed behind the masks on the cakes and the candles dripped just witchy perfect!

Don't know what I'd do without our Terri! She was the cutest witch you ever saw - and such a big, big help! I haven't figured out what she doesn't do yet!

Shey (Terri and Jack's daughter) is the most adorable witch I've ever seen - and the sweetest. And yes, that is her real hair!
Honest, we aren't BAD witches at all - and we give really good deals!
Terri and hubby, Jack. What a great support and helper he has been! Thanks Jack!!!
Shey and her red velvet cake - I think she liked it!
The Witches Of Holly (Holly Hills Primitives and Cathy from My Sweet Holly).

The first customers to come in with their witch hats - so cute!
Fay (one of our wonderful customers) brought her friend on their brooms and we had the best time with them.
SOOOO, that ends Witch's Nite for this year. It was our first time, the weather was TERRIBLE, but we had a great time and our loyal customers showed up in spite of the weather. Looking forward to doing it again next year.
Now, on with the rest of October. Next Saturday I am putting all Halloween at 50% off in conjunction with another shop near Clarkston called Lisa's Country Cupboard. We are going to have a mini shop-hop for deals! And, yes, we will be having treats again and some fun things happening. Come see us!
I have got to get moving on CHRISTMAS now though. The boxes have been arriving, the elves have been creating, and now it's my turn! Those dolls, snowmen and Santas can't wait too much longer.
I'm off to paint in our new home and my good friend, Bonnie, is tending the shop today. Have a wonderful weekend and we'll talk again soon.
Until next time...


  1. Dawn,
    You are all such cute witches. Glad you had fun. It's glorious to see the sun shine today!

  2. Oh phooey! I so wish I could have been there! It looks like you have the best times in your neck of the woods!! Someday, I WILL get there!!

  3. That looks like a fun night and I love the young girls hair! The lighted masks are so neat and the picture of the framed witch is spooky looking:) So wish I could have been there, maybe someday@

  4. How fun, you'all do the funnest things. Wish I lived closer.

  5. Witch's night sounds like SO much fun! I would have been there, but my broom is in the shop! LOL! ~~Annie

  7. Dawn what a fun night.
    Don't you all wish we could attend each and everyone's events. Oh, to dream.

    Glad it was a success.

    Oh my what a scary looking lady in the picture...I'd hate to do something wrong and get on her bad side! Actually, doesn't look like there's a good side....LOL


  8. Good morning. It looks like you had a fabulous time..even though the weather was not the best. We are having rain and snow showers right now and it's only 34*'s COLD!!!!

    So glad your Witches night was a success.

    Hugs, Doreen

  9. Well now "MY Pretties" fun! EEkkkkkk! A little to chilly and a little to far for me to get out the broom and fly on over to join you! But darn......"I'll get you my pretties"........and hopefully make it there someday....!
