Practical Magic Blog Party

I've had fun conjuring up a creation to go along with the theme of this blog party {the movie (or the book) "Practical Magic"}.


The story is about two sisters who are born into a long line of witches.  They are orphaned and sent to live with their two witchy (literally!) aunts in this fabulous house.  Yes, I want it!


And the kitchen is to die for!


The aunts.  (We love them!)


And you gotta love a movie that has no shortage of handsome men in it.  

  Aidan Quinn

Goran Visnjic

Mark Feurstein

My creation was inspired by the recurring theme of birds in the movie as well as the scene where Nicole Kidman admits to giving her boyfriend bella donna to knock him out, only it killed him!  Well, here it is.


The charm is a bird on a nest (with actual eggs underneath it!) that hangs from a little tin box that says "Witch Hazel" on it.  I could just see the sisters or the aunts using it to hide their secret stash of spell ingredients. 

Thanks to Justina and Anna for hosting this spectacular event!  Now it's time to head on over to their Party Blog and discover a long list of other bloggers who are also participating in the Practical Magic Blog Party fun!  Check out their blogs and help get this party started!

Well, that's it ladies.  Hope this puts you in the mood to go out there and rent this movie in anticipation of Halloween.  It really is a hoot!  Oh, and don't forget the midnight margaritas.....

The whimsy of your charms are just delightful! And the one you have created for this party, especially so. While I know it is not such, being someone who has to bring medication with me when I go out, the way you have created this necklace would be soooo perfect for people who have to do that. So exquisitely feminine. I hope you continue to be blessed with your creative eye.

Faith, trust, and faerie dust!
