This is another piece of art I purchased from the same fellow who did the koi. I love the Wicked Witch of the West. My sister has always loved Glinda. Her name is Linda and so I figure she probably thinks somewhere someone just keeps forgetting the "G". Anyway, over the years it has become a sort of joke between us. I find strange and fun Glinda stuff and send it to her. I address it to Glinda the Good Witch or something to that affect. She at first was hesitant to call me the bad witch but has since come around since I find it not offensive at all. Because I am 4 hours north of her she calls me the Wicked Witch of the North. I like it!
Now mind you, I don't think she knows I am a practicing witch. And that is ok too. I don't tell most people, only a select few know. I live in a VERY conservative area so it isn't something one goes around flaunting. I figure one day I'll come out of the broom closet but let them think they really know me so when I do it will be a positive thing.
I found a fun Yule gift for my sister, a vintage in the box Hallmark Glinda ornament. The seller had the Wicked Witch also so I bought that one for myself. Then, lo and behold I found someone who makes Glinda and Witch of the West christmas stockings!! You gotta' love Etsy! So I got one of those also. I'll ship the ornament in the stocking along with some homemade treats for the dog and cat. Who expects a witchy stocking?
And of course I got myself one also. And an extra. I may do a giveaway.
I'd be really curious if any of you share your witchyness with your sisters or family? My family is non-practicing Catholic and although there is a lot to like about Catholicism (old churches, the idea of Saints, exorcism, Mary, etc.) there is a lot of not so great either. I don't share anything. Part of it is I live so far away from them. Another is that it is private. I don't need the hassle of worrying about what anyone else thinks.
Anyway, leave me a note or blog about it and let me know. I'd really be interested.
