Oh my god, I missed it!!! *bangs head against wall* Somehow I managed to write it down (in more than one place even) as October. No idea how I did that. Honestly, I had a really neat post planned that was either going to be about Practical Magic inspired Book of Shadows pages or a collection of ‘practical magick’ tips. With some stroke of witchy luck, though, I happened to actually have at least watched it just today (twice. *sheepish*)
There is something about this movie that inspires all of us. I have designed more than one storefront and have been inspired by the incredible sets sometimes without even realizing it. Sally’s store is, to me, one of the most gorgeous layouts I’ve seen – all that white and green and glass is cool and crisp, yet still inviting. I am dying to help a friend who owns a small health food store redo the shop with a look like this!
The conservatory, the kitchen, the garden, every aspect of this impeccably designed home is a clue to the Owens women history and their unique gifts. I think many witches have grown up watching this movie and aspiring to be like the beautiful, powerful, yet often achingly normal women featured in it.
So a toast, ladies: raise your margarita glass to incredible gals who embrace their magick and merrily dance naked under a Midsummer full moon (and while we’re at it, can we blame my blond roots on some sort of family curse?)
