There's some discussion over where the first kitchen witch originated; some claim Norway and others say Germany, but the consensus seems to agree it stems from older European customs.
The Kitchen Witch inspires productivity and safety in the home, but at the same time counteracts any ill-will directed to the home. Years ago, my sister Barbara, needlepointed one for Mom and it hung as a guardian in her kitchen. In our recollection, my mother never burned anything, but we shared a chuckle that it didn't keep her from adding ground cloves, instead of chili powder, in a pot of chili she cooked for my Dad, brother-in-law, and brother to eat after chopping wood one day!
Cruella (the good)
So, if you'd like to be in a drawing at the end of the month for the September's Kitchen Witch Apron, all you have to do is comment on the posts for the month of September. I believe that it's good luck to give a Kitchen Witch (apron) to a friend or family member and I'll be happy to send this along to the lucky recipient. Enjoy!
