Antique chalk kitty in a little felt witch's hat

  1. I am wondering if it could be late enough into October to carve jack-o-lanterns or would they be mush by the time Halloween came around?

    1. Not that I pay any attention to Halloween anyway.

    2. I just saw in pinterest that if you immerse your carved pumpkin in a sink of water/bleach before setting outside, it will last a lot longer.

    3. I will give that careful consideration (and find some old clothes).
      I'll have two little girls here tomorrow.

    1. I thought it was! Do you remember when I bid on her and brought her home? She's such a funny looking thing..kind of like a gargoyle. ha.

    2. And from the little notch on her ear, I'd say she's been spayed! Ha!

    1. I don't have any more little boys to go, either! But they do like to go to the door and see the costumes. Not as many kids come to our neighborhood as in past years...they have all grown up!

    1. Just put flea control on the whole bunch.
      If you think that was expensive, you have a hunch.
      lol.
      Not this kitty, though,
      the fleas might stub a toe.
      hahaha.

      Delete
    2. Flea control would cost a ton
      For all the kitties under your sun

    3. That it did, it is true.
      But the alternative is just Ew. ha.

  9. How did you know that I was cruising the bog world??? I was reading your fried green tomato post and looked at the neely's recipe. They made it more difficult than necessary... Ha! I had them for dinner tonight. Give this easy way a try: slice, salt, let sit for an hour or so to remove moisture; pat dry, dip in buttermilk then meal and seasonings , fry... Enjoy!

    1. Well, I didn't know....but I do think of you time to time. :)

      That's how I usually make them...but deep frying looked fun..and they said the breading wouldn't fall off like it can when you pan fry.

  13. I think that little kitty is waiting for her witch to come home! Very cute. xx

  14. She's ok. She has just been petrified. A little mandrake potion and she'll be right as rain. I think she'll love the little witches hat wench she wakes on All Hallows Eve. May end up demanding a matching purse. ;)
    Or could be I've been watching a little too much of Harry Potter #2. haha.

    3. She really does look like that! When she was out on the tables at the auction I had to check her out. She's really old....looks a bit like stone but really light when you pick her up. Her paint is all worn. I wonder if she lived outside for a time. :)

    1. Are you? So, what's the common halloween treats to give out over there?

    1. Exactly. We don't do much. We don't even carve pumpkins! ha.

  17. I am not crazy about witches but your little kittie is adorable.
    We've ordered Gavin a shark costume and got Elizabeth pink cowboy boots and a hat that they both requested. But husbands knee surgery and recovery will pretty much be what we are doing for Halloween.

    1. She is a little scary...she's not sweet or cute looking...She's quite odd...but that's why I liked her. ha.

    2. Exactly - that's why I like odd things too. She is not a cookie-cutter-kitty!
