The "What's in your brew?" Giveaway for the September EHAG Emporium

"Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,--
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."

The witches and warlocks of EHAG are stirring their cauldrons, preparing for the holiday ahead... though their ingredients run more to paperclay, paint, papier-mâché, gourds, fabrics, and beads.

While those cauldrons bubble, they've concocted four goblinicious goodies to hold you until the September EHAG Emporium doors creak open at 9PM EDT on September 30th.

The night before, at 9PM, you could win one of these.  To enter, tell us what's in your brew.  Leave that with your contact information: a working blog or email address.  Winners will be contacted by the artists once names have been drawn.  If the spirits send your notification to the haunted sp*m folder or you can't be reached, another winner will be chosen.  While the artists of EHAG are magical, they're not necessarily psychic.

A BlogGoblin haunts this blog.  If he doesn't let you leave a comment, you may email it, along with your information, to  The friendly BlogMistress will add your comment for you. email entries must be sent by September 28th at 9PM.

Here are the gloriously ghastly giveaway gifts...

Jo James of Cart Before the Horse
has brewed up these Halloween Skeleton Ornaments

 Wearing a party hat. . .7 1/2 inches
or without a hat. . . 5 3/4 inches
We had our original folky skeleton designs professionally printed
on quality cotton fabric.  Then we sewed them
to a cool polka dot backing,
stuffed them with fluff, and gave them
hand-painted hardwood arms and legs.
They have a little loop on top
so they are ready to be hung anywhere that needs a splash of skeletal cheer.
Winner gets to choose a favorite from the above.

  1. I would love to win one of your wonderful prizes, so I guess I will have to share the secret ingredient in my hearty cackle. It helps everyone enjoy the taste. ; )
    (((Halloween hugs)))

  2. Leaves of nightshade
    Plucked aft' the blooms fade
    Belladona and absinthe
    Imbued with night's scent
    Cyanide and oleander and hemlock's fruit
    Bubbled and simmered in poison ivy's sweet root

    Ok, not the best, but my coffee's wearing off! ;o)

    Woo Hoo!! Wondrous goodies!! I would so love to be entered in your latest giveaway!

    Thanks so very kindly!! Robin

  3. again wonderful goodies you all are so generous to share!! My brew is probably full of the yucky fish eyes my 5yo likes to eat, yes it's true his dad let him once and so far he has not turned into a frog! rchelle @ hotmail . com

  4. Oooooh....spooky! I love all your giveaway goodies! Please include me in the drawing.

    My secret brew ingredients include the toenails from a werewolf, elderberry berries, skunk cabbage and lady's slipper.

  5. My September brew seems to be made of bits of yarn, pencil and crayon shavings, tears and hugs too, with a bit of cinnamon and sugar (for a little sweetness) and a heaping handful of hope.
    Thanks to all the wonderful artists for the chance at these goodies.

  6. What wonderful gifts!!!

    My Autumn brew is a crisp cool air, dried magnolia leaves, a bit of spanish moss, crushed magnolia seeds, a dash of attic dust, and a pinch of cinnamon all mixed together in a hollowed out pumpkin filled with rain water :)

  7. in a large black cauldron, smoking on apple branches, are the jewels of autumn (oak, maple, beech, elm leaves), stirred in with scarecrow grins, the chill blue-grey of stormy skies, the cries of owls a-hunting, laughter of children, the glow of harvest moons past & present, & the last of the garden herbs....mints, mugwort, chamomile, valerian. once the white smoke rises, i serve my brew in pie pumpkins, with apples bobbing happily, & stirred with ravens' wings.

  8. I cram my cauldron with crystals. And glitter. Oh, and sanding sugar! Fake eyeballs go in too and anything orange and black. (it tastes awful, but my is it fun!)

  9. Wicked goodies! Delightful treats! What is in my brew: drops of moonbeams, ravens wings, banshee screams, straw from a scarecrows brain, pumpkin guts, a few kernals of bloody butcher corn, one dried magic mushroom, one bucket of water from the wishing well. Stir well and make yor wish!

  10. How exciting.....Let's see.....what's in my witches brew. I think a dash of Dragons breath, a sprinkle of screeching owl, a cup full of angry black cat, and last a cup of candy corn....cause I love sugar. ;0) Hehehehehe

  11. Not so wicked is my brew, but how about a breath of an Autumn breeze, with a tincture of Crow berries and flaming Fireweed, stirred with a piece of driftwood from the Nenana River, while dancing with the wild ones in the forest. Must be done by the light of the moon, or the magic will disappear....

  12. Trick or Treat! Would Love to be entered in!!!
    For my witches brew I will add some: eyes of newt, warts from frogs, and some dandilion soup, a pinch of werewolf hair, and a cackle from a fool ~ thats whats in my brew!! Boo-Hoo!
    Prim Blessings

  13. Love the prizes you are offering. My brew consists of: bat whiskers, black cat fat, gargoyle sweat, troll teeth and broom sweepings...just to name a few.

  14. Great prizes!! Such creativity from the EHAG artists!!!

    My cauldron will have Halloween Hershey Kisses in it... what else does one need?!?!? =)


  15. Well, I have to say that my brew is more of the bourbon type which turns most people into pretty scary things!

  16. How wonderfully delightful! My brew contains, a pinch of worm fat, urine of the horsefly, buttered fingers, three coins from a dead mans pocket, and two tablespoons of wishful thinking.

  17. Fantastic scary spooky giveaway goodies!! My brew is about 2 and a half years old and is really more into pretty Halloween than scary Halloween, as, for example, if this 2 and a half year old sees a person with a BIG GIANT mascot mask on their head she says over and OVER and OVER all DAYYYY LOOOONNNNGGGG.... "Big scary head! Big scary head!!" Susan purrpage3 at verizon dot net

  18. Ghastly glorious giveaway, indeed! I'll be brewing espresso chocolate pudding potion again for Halloween.

  22. My most secret ingredient, very potent, used only in treasure hunting spells, must be gathered between 3 and 3:15 am on the darkest day of the month, and never in July.
    It is a pale blue mold carried on the whiskers of female orange cats who acquire it walking through fields of primula veris. Can be substituted with fairy dust with lesser results.

    We also use sticks and snails but NO puppy dog tails go in the pot here, except to stir.

  23. Such wonderful creations and a fun selection of brews...!

    I wrote this little poem for the occasion (and maybe took out a little verbal frustration out on some local squirrels):

    our cauldron boils with rodent tails
whose garden feast i did derail,

    the glee they took to stuff their maw
fell victim to my feline’s claws.
    and spiced on naught but what they fed

    of kernels, gourds, and flower heads,

    we slowly sip this subtle tea

    that tastes of harvest... vermin free.

  24. In my bubbly brew
    is a small troll's shoe
    a pair of lizard eyes
    and six or seven live fruit flies


  25. My brew is full of all those icky things that give me the heebie jeebies...lizards, and snakes, and frogs, oh my!!!

  26. I would put in my witches brew, a dash of love, 2 tranchulas, 2 bat wings, 4 human eyeballs, spit from a troll, hair from a bigfoot, and a spooky spell to make it come true.

  27. Here is my Brew entry:

    Pumpkin juice and grated rind
    A bit of cackle, the humorous kind
    Whispers of a nearby spirit
    listen closely can you hear it?
    Bring the brew to a boiling rage
    Then pluck a sprite from it's golden cage
    Add a few wings, for they will grow back
    Add the screech of one large black cat
    A pinch of laughter, some creative disaster
    A frog or two, for a nice green hue
    Serve in a cup garnished with sage
    and this Halloween you will be all the rage!
