This is my own little twist on the Scandinavian Kitchen Witch

My Morning Inspiration...

Many of the things I've done in my life have basically been self-taught. I think we, as the Muppets, broke new ground because we approached puppetry from a different angle. I had never worked with puppets when I was a kid, an even when I began on television, I really didn’t know what I was doing. I’m sure that this was a good thing, because I learned as I tackled each problem. I think if you study- if you learn too much of what others have done, you may tend to take the same direction as everybody else.

A national magazine has asked Kovels to find some examples of haunted furniture--perhaps a clock that chimes at unexpected times or a sofa that creaks? Tell us your story, what's happening, and why you think your piece of furniture is haunted. Also include a description and history of the piece. Send all the information, along with your name, state, email address and phone number to Terry at feedback@kovels.com. We will send everything on to the national women's lifestyle magazine. Your story may be included in an article.
