THANK YOU FOR POPPING IN TO MEET HESPA! She comes from a long line of witches who have lived in the land of Nod since time began. She is the great-niece of Hagetha; the most famous witchypoo of all. But....much to the chagrin of those who came before her, Hespa is a kind soul with a love for all of her kindred spirits. Only good spells and healing herbs are a part of her arsonnal.

Hespa is made of aged osnaburg. Her face is needle sculpted with black seed bead eyes and sisal whiskers. Her dress is a primitive burnt orange in color and is quilt shop quality fabric. Her hat, vest and witchy shoes are made of wool felt. The hat has been stiffened to permanently hold its shape.

Every year Hespa carves her own pumpkin and this year is no exception. In fact, she is rather proud of this one. It is made of paperclay with a stick for the stem; then painted and aged for that prim perfect look.

She keeps her broom handy (held by her sweet curly tail) just in case she has to make a quick getaway.

Hespa has been securely attached to the lid of her spooky keepsake box. The box is made of painted and aged paper mache. It would make the perfect hiding spot for that little stash of candy corn.

This little halloween vignette is loaded with detail. You will not be disappointed. If you feel needful of Hespa and would like to adopt her for your own, her cost is a mere $35.00 which includes priority air fare to your home.



I only have one available at this time. If you would like to place an order for Hespa, please contact me using the "contact me" button on my right sidebar.

Dear blog friends,
I am trying to put together a bloggers board.
This board would contain the name of the blog, the first name of the author ( last name, if you allow ) and birthday-- month and day only.
Once I get this put together, I will email to all participants.
If you know of others who would like to be listed, please give them my email address so I can add them.
I just think it would be handy to know when our friends birthdays are so we can send them our best wishes.
Those of you who have not yet sent me your address, please do. These will not be part of the blog board, but for my own personal address book. I like to send cards now and then.
