I love this image, I wonder what she was thinking. I bet she didn't think that in years to come some artist would turn her in to a witch.... would she had taken it as a offence or would she though it fun.
Let's face it if she had been called a witch only a few hundred years ago she would have been burned or hanged.
And what is a witch? they are so many different ideas .. she is a old woman, bent with age.. living alone in the woods just trying to live on the herbs and roots
or it she a tall green faced woman who flies on a broom stick with pet flying monkeys.
Is she a icy queen bent on ruling
or a beautiful witch ready to help a young girl lost in a far of land.
or a young mother trying not to use her magic.
or a teenage girl helping her friends out
Do you think if a call you a witch that I'm calling you a bad person? I hope not I hope you know me well enough to know.It's just fun.
You are probably wondering what this post is all about. It is that I may have caused offence by calling my Halloween Tin swappers Good witches. If you were offended I'm sorry but as in all my swaps.
I think a fun name for all the swappers taking part adds a touch of whimsy and interest... I hope you will understand and bear with me..
