Witchy Women

We're having a quiet Hallowe'en this year, but if we were to head to some theoretical costume party, I think I'd like to go as Aunts Enchantra and Hagatha.

Of course, that would involve explaining to Mr. Muscato exactly who they are, which might be a challenge. I suppose I could go solo, as Aunt Clara (Mr. M. tends to fall back on the thobe and burnoose he picked up while working in Riyadh; he does make a very fetching Sheikh of Araby), but with that fur stole there's always the unfortunate chance that people would assume I'm Eleanor Roosevelt.

Whatever you're doing to mark this festive, eerie weekend, I hope you have as much fun as Estelle and Reta here, carissimi. What are you up, anyway?


  1. What are you up (to)? Oh, the usual - casting runes, sacrificing goats, a bit of mummering, visiting a fairy ring, that sort of thing...


    PS I somehow always imagined there was a touch of Estelle Winwood about you :-)

    1. Well, I was long a great deal more RetaShawische, shape-wise, but these days I'm getting down toward Winwood territory. And, like she herself to Miss Bankhead, I've been the comparatively sensible friend to many a diva...

  2. This blog is very good ..
    as well as the clothes are very beautiful to look at
