the witch is in ~ halloween mantle

Halloween mantle3

Without thinking about it, planning it or realizing it I created a witch theme on the mantle.

Halloween mantle1

It’s one of those things that just happened and I went with it.

Halloween mantle2

The witch & hat I bought a few years ago at a great little boutique “the queen bee” not too far from me, which has unfortunately closed.

Halloween mantle4

The larger frame with that great witch silhouette I printed from here.

Halloween mantle5

Remember what I was saying about free printables in blogland.  It’s truly amazing and this witch is fabulous.

Halloween mantle7

I also got the “witches’ dance” sheet music here.  all available for personal use.  Love it!

Halloween mantle6

I have a stash of frames from my old consigning days so I put them to use here.

I have other projects with free printables I hope to share soon.

Happy Crafting!
