An afternoon of coffee and Practical Magic

Have you ever watched the movie Practical Magic? It is a feast for the eyes. The old Victorian house that the aunts live in. The beautiful conservatory with the old panes of wavy glass full of plants and old glass bell jars. Can you imagine a garden full of those beautiful bell jars as cloches. There are flower gardens and raised herb beds. Hanging bunches of garlic in the old Victorian kitchen. I am going to make a wind chime like the one in the movie. It is made of forks and spoons. The costumes are fabulous. The Aunts clothes are amazing. Lots of botanical prints, linens and wonderful straw hats. Filmed in Washington State, the scenery looks very much like the area I live in.


  1. So, Erin, how does practical magic differ from the impractical kind??

  2. Hahahahaha. Well let's see.
    Practical magic would be when you use magic to get ties and socks. Impractical magic when you use it to get Chia Pet.
    I hope I cleared this up for you.

  3. Oh sure - it's all clear to me now!! :0

  4. Glad I could help Mark. I'm a helpful kind of girl.
