In keeping with my theme this month I am having to get creative. I could of course post each and every day about haunted Hollywood...ghosts of stars and starlets of the 1920's & 1930's...I am indeed learning so very much through my research and having a grand old time...but thought I would instead share some of my clip art/photos I have collected and then also give a book recommendation. So today is Witches. Did you know there was actually official witch hunts going on in the 20's and 30's...crazy, I know..and a totally different subject...today's post is strictly just for fun with a bit of history thrown in.

*bloggers note: I do not practice, nor have I ever, and though I actually know a few Wicca practitioners I am only doing this post as an educational tidbit to fit in with my October theme month.
