A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

New Addition to Giveaway Prizes

I had promised that my Suggest-A-Name Giveaway would include extra, mystery items not shown in the photo of prizes. There will still be some mystery items in the prize, but given there is only just over a week to go in the giveaway and the number of entries is decidedly under-whelming, I've decided to reveal what the major mystery bonus item is in the hope of enticing a few more entrants.

It is a hand made straw witches hat in a dusky mauve. It is about 1 1/2" high and sports a black hat band trimmed with black feathers and mauve flowers.  Here you can see Hetty modelling it:

If you would like to have a chance to win this hat as well as the other prizes (which include a straw mat, a faux leadlight window and a pair of candle sconces), please leave a comment either on this post or the original giveaway post here that includes a suggested name for my Witches Shop or a suggestion of something witchy to include in the shop.
