Here is the amazing piece sent to me by coocoosnest.  I can't express how thrilled I am with this, it is exactly what I would have wanted if I had known what it was I wanted!   Cheesy

Here's what coocoosnest told me in an explanatory letter:  "This is my version of a Witch's Ball.  Real Witch's Balls are for good to trap bad spirits before they can get to you.  My version however is not good.  Witches creep around on Halloween night to capture people's frightened souls and trap them in their evil balls."



The globe is spooky red and black mosaic in an ornate crochet holder.  

This whole thing is big, about 17 inches tall.  The legend reads

"On Halloween night
In your homes locked up tight
Waiting for Witches to call

With her globe burning bright
Full of souls full of fright
Coming to add yours to her ball"

She also included a fabulous beaded snake necklace, who she fastened to the ball hanger to guard it (yes, he is an evil snake!).




Thank you so much, coocoosnest!   Kiss

Isn't it incredible?  I'm hoping my husband will let me keep it where it's hanging, where I can see it all the time!   Cheesy

Oops, my husband is making me move it to another location, because it startles him as he goes around that corner!  Tongue  But I think I have a good place for it...

Here is the bat mobile that courtneyf made for me.  I got a giggle out of "bat mobile".  I have always admired the real bat mobile.  Smiley  Thank you Courtney.
