Practial Magic Blog Party - Blanche

So glad you made it!  Put your broom in the corner and stay for a spell!


Like so many of you  I have seen the movie a ga-zillion timnes, so that's where my Inspiration lies in the gathering of  Practial Magic things....


Sally's dream of her shop and then seeing it come to fruition is also a dream of mine...





Another favorite from the movie is the Book of Shadows - I am working on a similar book - a Herbarium, but of course did not finish much in time to show you!



Sally rescuing Gillian from Jimmy de Angelo and in the parking lot notices BLOOD ON THE MOON...

Of course she goes back to the car for her Tiger's Eye Necklace!


A little bit of Bell-A-Donna should do the trick, but not toooo much! Mahhhhhhhhh!

In the Flap Jack scene, in the garden are lovely windchimes made with utensils....


And lastly, I leave you Practical Magic Party Goers with a little bit of Magic I discovered just this morning in my yard.  Growing out of the grass from NOWHERE, I saw a spot of RED.



Upon a closer examination, look what sprang up!  Magic, I tell you!

To celebrate this Magic, I am giving away my Aunt Jet brooch to a commenter that has a little bit of magic in them! hehe!  I added this a bit late, but never fear, anyone that has posted a comment is eligible to win! Winner will drawn on Friday, October 1st!




Thanks to Justina and Anna for hosting this perfectly, practically magical party!
Please be sure and check out all the other wonderful blogs!

  21. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments! I did a little research - the internet is wonderful! That red flower is a red spider lily! Otherwise know as a hurricane lily because the seeds are blown around in the wind. They also typically bloom around the autumnal equinox!!

    Enjoy the party!

  24. Fantastic post - I must watch the movie again - I saw it years ago and then watched it as this came up - I forgot about the windchimes - I so need to make one - yours is great. I love your bottles - your label design is awesome. The bell-a-donna - the red flower that magically grew... oh, and the best part... the Aunt Jet brooch...all that abalone!!! Oh, I am putting a spell on my entry as I type...
    Thanks for sharing - and stopping by to visit me!
    Cheers with smoldering potions!

  27. It truly is magic to find such a beautiful flower like that ....
    youre so creative. Love the pressed flowers and botanicals...I thought it was a picture from the movie at first!

  28. I just discovered your blog as I have so many other magickal and beautiful ones through the PM party...I'm slowly making my way through the list and loving it. Your "HOS" instead of "BOS" is turning out beautiful. I know Sally would have wanted one just like it! Thank you for the giveaway. Wishing you lots of magick, practical and impractical ;)

  29. Congratulations in your dreams coming true also. :) I love your photos and jewelry, but I must admit that the idea of a herbarium is so appealing to me. I bet yours is going to be just exquisitely gorgeous once you finish it. Not the sort of thing to be rushed at all. I imagine members of your family for many, many generations to come will find pleasure in that. Thank you for the giveaway.

    Faith, trust, and faerie dust!
