Witches in Fiction 2014… Crafting Blooming Howls

Welcome to my wee contribution to the Witches in Fiction... Crafting Blooming Howls blog party, hosted by the lovely Magaly Guerrero of Pagan Culture blog.

This was not the post I had originally planned for this blog party, but when our magical hostess, Magaly, sent me the wonderful gift of a vintage novel based on The Addams Family television series a few days ago (here), she also included a bag of lavender in the package. It came with an instruction to have her explain the story behind "the purple stuff".  As it turned out, this was no ordinary "purple stuff". No, indeedy! Magaly had picked it while strolling through... *breathes slowly into a paper bag*... Sleepy Hollow Cemetery! Squeal!

So, realizing that I was in possession of some very, very special "purple stuff", I temporarily set aside the project I was working on and instead made a Little Gothic Heart with red and black damask on one side, and bats on the other. And how does this fit with the witchy theme of this blog party? Well, this Little Gothic Heart is stuffed with lavender that was picked by a witch from arguably the most Halloween-y spot on the planet!

As this was a last minute idea, I was only able to make one heart in time for the hop, but I'm planning on making more and will hopefully do a giveaway down the track. Now, please do head on over to Magaly's blog and mingle with the other partygoers.
