New Witches

I continue to add to the witch collection that I thought I was no longer adding to.  Sometimes things come up that are just too hard to pass by.  The copper witch weathervane on the left is a new addition.  I wish I knew the story behind it.

This is new too.  I have an exact duplicate of it that I got a while ago.
And this silver cup was too cute to pass up.  Here is its description, at least I know something about this piece:  THIS IS A UNIQUE LITTLE CHILDS SILVER CUP DEPICTING GRETAL PUSHING THE WITCH IN THE OVEN FROM THE FAIRY TALE ABOUT HANSEL & GRETAL. MADE BY GERO IN HOLLAND GEORG NILSSON DESIGNER WORKED WITH GEORG JENSEN. THIS PIECE IS MARKED U GERO 90 & INITIALED GN. THE 90 STANDS FOR A HIGH DEGREE OF VERY HEAVY SILVER PLATING. IT IS IN EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION W/NO DINGS OR DENTS.
Don't cemeteries look perfect in the Fall?
My great grandparents are buried somewhere in there. I have never been able to find their tombstones.
If you ever wonder why I love Fall so much, this is right by my old house.
 I rode to school on the bus looking at this each day.  It makes me feel at home.
 Have you seen this on the internet?  Too bad I am not having one of my big Halloween parties this year because this might have been the buffet!!!  Some people are just too darn clever!
