Practical Magic 2011

They feared her beacuse she had a gift, a power that has been passed on to you children.





She had the gift of MAGIC. And it was this very gift that saved her life.






"For two sisters from a family of WITCHES, falling in LOVE is the TRICKIEST spell of all."










"Well, that's what love is like. It makes your heart race. It turns the world upside down. But if you're not careful, if you don't keep your eyes on something still, you can loose your balance."




"She heard the beetle ticking for her husband's death all day long."







"In this house we have chocolate for breakfast, and never bother with silly little things like bedtimes or brushing teeth."

"I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for."

"I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, you could probably hear the ocean."

"Magic isn't just spell and potions."










"Jewelry in the ashes of the structure provided positive identification."
-Gary Hallet Special Investigator









"Put the lime in the coconut, drink them both up..."

"My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue."

"The moon tonight, there's a circle around it. Sign












"You get right over here and grab that spoon and dig right in."




"You know that stuff everyone whispers about me... the hexes, the spells?"





"Here is the thing. I'M A WITCH!"





"Can love travel back in time and heal a broken heart."







"Was it our joined hands that finally lifted Maria's curse?"





"I'd like to think so. There's some things I know for sure..."

A thank you to Anna at Frosted Petunias for hosting Practical Magic 2011.





It is one of my favorite movies and capturing for this second year was enchanting.

Another beautiful bewitching post my dear! I love the gorgeous candlelight and that little picket fence is adorable. Thank you for the brownies, can't ever have too much, and I know it's early in the morning but I might have a sip or two of that wicked brew. Thank you for being part of my little party again. Have a beautiful weekend and happy Fall :)
