Double, Double Toil and Trouble

Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the cool crisp mornings, the beautiful colors, the crunch of the leaves and those wonderful smells. The caramel apples, candy corn, and warm soup with corn bread. Wearing a warm sweater and carving pumpkins. I love Fall. I have been traveling but working hard to get some new designs out. I created the Witches Potion Bottles from the Song of the Witches by William Shakespeare. I could hear Double, double toil and trouble in my head so I googled the words and found out it was written by Shakespeare, I had no idea. It is such a fun poem so creating the penny rug was easy. I hope you all have a wonderful Autumn and Happy Halloween.

Song of the Witches

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm sting,
Lizard’s leg and howlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon’s blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.
