"W" as in the WITCH'S HAT

This week we are studying the letter "W" for Alphabe-Thursday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."

(I don't know about  you, but I'm dreading next week.  "X" is always a tough one.)

In keeping with my doll theme...

The kids got together to plan their big Halloween party.  This was only a work session where they got together to carve the pumpkin and make the plans.  One of the girls wore her WITCH'S hat.
I did ask her to remove the WITCH'S hat since it got in the way when I was taking pictures.
The Vogue Ginny doll kneeling on the chair is a Bent Knee Walker probably from around 1961.  I say that because she has freckles and green eyes.  Vogue made a doll called the Wee Imp for 1960 (although she came out in mid 1959) and she had straight orange hair, green eyes, and freckles.  She was only made for one year.  They apparently used up leftover freckled faces with green eyes the following year and put regular wigs on them.  The other two dolls are Vogue Vintage Reproductions made in recent times.

The kids enjoyed carving the pumpkin.  Don't worry.  There was adult supervision.  They also enjoyed the Halloween treats and cider.  There was plenty of candy, donuts, candied apples, cookies, etc. for their enjoyment.

They didn't even cry over spilled cider.
Now head over to Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants.  Thank you for visiting.


  1. What a cute little group carving pumpkins! Love the hat...

  3. Those kids had fun at the carving party. The witch's hat looks nice but it sure is big for your kind of party. Lots of candy, they must trick or treat in our neighborhood. We don't up here.

    I have been thinking about "X" words too, it surely is a tough one. There are a lot of "eX" ones. I would like to use my scarecrow 'doll' if I can figure an "X" word.

  4. This was so wonderful - haha - you're a patient mom! With all that candy and spills going on.

    So tell me how long does this take you to get ready - some people do table scapes and it takes them days.

    This is so much fun.

  5. What a cute Halloween party preparation ! We don't celebrate Halloween very much or not at all in Belgium.

    What a fun little session. Cute that she wore her hat for it.

  7. It's just about that time, isn't it? Fun Halloween decor, and it looks like a neat party.


  8. I could almost taste a super and cinnamon donut!...:)JP

  9. I'm surprised to see how many Halloween items the Ginny dolls have!
