Magic in the Air

It seems there is a bit of Practical Magic floating about the blogosphere, but because I have been somewhat absent here lately, I didn't arrive in time to participate, but thought I would get into the witchy mood by posting some of my older photos. I had such fun doing this photo shoot. I hope you enjoy it too...if you want to see what everyone else has in store, you can pop on over to Anna at Frosted Petunias for a list of all the participants. Should be a hoot.

It seems that I have been enamoured with all things magical lately, and have been indulging is some magical fiction. The trilogy of books by Nora Roberts called "The Three Sisters Island trilogy" was a wonderful read. Pure escapism about three witches and how their lives are entwined forever. If you enjoy a bit of witchcraft, fantasy and a love-story rolled into one, then these are the books for you.

I have also been busy reconnecting with some old friends, one of whom happens to be a witch herself. I have introduced you before, I am sure, to my dear friend Wendy. She is wild and beautiful, and oh so talented, and the hours just fly when we get together...she hypnotises with her unique voice.
I always try to bring a little magic into everyday...the possibilities are endless...


Have a magical day everyone...

  1. So beautiful. I love that trilogy by Nora Roberts myself. If your friend Wendy is who I think she is you are absolutely correct that she has a beautiful voice.

    Blessings.

  29. Hi Blog sister!!!!
    Finally getting around to visiting, I had a wedding yesterday which kept me from the party. LOVE the first picture, your eyes are so beautiful! Everyone is commenting on your photos and I have to also. They really are uniquely beautiful and evoke something magical/gypsy/artsy... hard to find the right words. You are delightful and I do so wish we lived closer! Loved your post and I will have to check out the Three Sisters book, love getting great read tips,
    Furry, magical and faerie blessings!

  32. The Nora Roberts series called "The Three Sisters Island trilogy" was the trilogy that got me started reading Nora Roberts. I really enjoyed them. Good idea sharing them here, I think if they haven't been read they will be soon. :)

  33. I Loved you revisiting your Practical Magic Posts and Images so that we could enjoy them this time around! You have the same color eyes as my G-Son... he gets so embarrassed when people tell him what Beautiful eyes he has... guess a Girl would LOVE being told that, but for a Boy its a little harder to accept the compliment. *winks*
