Believe this or not, the first time I heard the saying, "If you throw salt over your left shoulder, you will never again visit that place," I was in the military. I thought it was superstition, but because the guy ranked higher than myself, I dared not say a word. Now I figure, it can't hurt. I have to make a little bag for myself, and reserve it for those occasions.

What a wonderful post. Great artwork !!!
Why do I love Practical Magic ??? Wher to begin ? I love it, because it makes me feel so good. The love in the movie is so powerful, that it jumps off the screen of the tv.
I think that the love between the sisters and the aunts is the most powerful in the movie and that is what I really love. The home and the garden are so beautiful, I would love to have such a home and garden.
Have a magical weekend.

Jennifer said...

Thank you so much for visiting my party blog. I miss seeing you!!!

The one thing I truly adore about Practical Magic is how the love of sisters and family intertwine with the magick itself, since true magick lies within all of us! And of course the Midnight Margaritas! :)

I am following you all over the place!!! Hugs and Blessings~Jennifer

lovely post, and please enter me in your giveaway. I love the ending the best. When they have all the town folk come to see them. Hugs Sara

lizventuri said...

I love this movie. Although my magic is much more subtle (whose isn't?). The Aunt's are such wonderful characters. But my favorite aspect of the film and the book was when my daughter (who is now almost 14) watched it with me and said, "oh, I get it. When you are yourself and open up love and good things find you." Smart, smart girl.

clairedulalune said...
