Superstition: SquareUp (28)

It is a European superstition to have a kitchen witch to ward off evil spirits from your kitchen. Some years ago, I decided I would have one, and here she is:

Linked to January Squares at Becky’s here


  1. This is the first I’ve heard of a kitchen witch but she’s an adorable one.

  2. well she is rather splendid isn’t she.

  3. Evil spirits? They wouldn’t dare come in your kitchen, Sue! You’d chase them off with a broom 🙂 🙂 She looks happy!

  4. Which part of Europe, Sue? I’ve not come across this

  5. My grandma had a kitchen witch. I’ve not seen many lately. I have a gargoyle guarding my kitchen.

  6. Oh goodness, I couldn’t have that in the house.

  7. I saw one in a rented gite in France once, but I have not seen any in Enlgand before.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. This was totally new to me, Sue! Interesting! And yours is the first kitchen wich I have ever seen. She looks nice, and I bet she loves hanging with you (!) Now, Norway…the current princess Märtha Louise believes in Angels and she has written a book about them. (Not a children’s book) She also has a shaman fiancee I know. So – my guess is the little kitchen wich originates from Norway.

  9. I learned something new today. She should warn off the evil spirits 😀

  10. She looks like a very nice witch soI’m sure she does the trick!

  11. She’s a happy-looking witch, best kind. Although now that I think about it, maybe it depends on what makes her happy! 🙂
