Stepping Out In Style Halloween Table & A CSN Giveaway

Witches are famous for spells so....

Sit down for a spell and put your feet up on
this gorgeous
 from one of CSN's fabulous stores.

No, I don't mean the witches are going
to put a spell on you, I mean for a while!

CSN has offered a $65 gift certificate
which I am going to give away to one
of my followers, new or old.
You can find out more about this fabulous
offer at the end of this post.
Meanwhile, this beautiful purple ottoman
coffee table will help you rest while you
read about my cute little witches.

Even witches love fancy shoes I have found.
Notice how their shoes match that lovely ottoman?

I found a bunch of witches the other day
walking all over my dining room table,
setting up house.

They decided to set their own table
featuring a lovely collection of shoe inspired
tableware that they brought with them.

I have to admit that I like their taste.

These sweet witches are always welcome
at Purple Chocolat Home.

Who knew salt and pepper shakers came shaped like
witches shoes?  Too cute.

These witches are close friends with Beaulah
and Drewcilla that you may have met before.
If you haven't met these lovely witches, click
on their names above to see what Halloween
fun they have brought to our home.

These lovely tablescaping witches
 just wanted to say, "Thanks for stopping by
and gawking at our table."

Don't forget to take along a little treat they made
just for you this October.

To get the recipe for this delicious caramel apple
just click here.
I think these little ladies better get off the table
and back into the kitchen to make some more

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
