Day Olds - August 2nd, 2007 Kitchen Witch

Across from me at the Carp Farmers' Market is The Doll Lady. She often has "kitchen witches" for sale that she makes from fabric. The kitchen witch, it seems to me, is a very old tradition. I am sure it has to do with getting rid of evil in the heart (hearth) of the home. If I was a kitchen witch, I would use my powers to cook the holiday turkey to perfection, as depicted here. This image as a pin was never a big seller, in fact as a pin it was always very big for the average pin-wearer, but I made it anyway. Having something be saleable has never stopped me from making something that wasn't. And I might add, more often than not.
