Hortense on a Broom

I made a broom for Hortense, my latest witch. Just a wooden dowel, and some raffia. I also gave her a book of spells and potions. And, I added ruffles to the bottoms of her sleeves. It didn't take Hortense long to learn how to fly on this broom. She took to it as if she'd been flying all her life!

It was hard to photo her here, hanging from my dining room chandelier, she kept wanting to fly in a slow circle, and there was too much "stuff" in the background. So, I hung her on a wall:

I didn't like the lack of color in the background, so here is what Hortense would look like flying through the night sky:

As I photographed her over my dining table, I was thinking how cool she would look at a Halloween party, hung over a centerpiece. Or, maybe keeping watch over the Halloween goodies!

Hey Maggie,
Love Hortense on her broom. You can see she's a natural born flyer. She is putting me in the mood for doing some Halloween decorating. Hope you're having a great weekend. Hugs

Maggie - the broom is great and Hortense is one quick learner! She should be casting a spell for you after receiving your gift of transportation :D

She is excellent Maggie! I love her! Love the detail! Sorry I didn't e-mail back to you! My computer crashed for a good week. Just got my new one yesterday. Please say hi to Marlene for me! I haven't heard from her in a long time!
