Practical Magic party

 Welcome to my first

 Practical Magic Blog Party...

Stroll around...

take a pinch of basil

smell the jasmine..


say hello to the family.

Can you smell the lemon grass?
get a closer whiff if you have to...

ohhh see the magic starting
to brew?
Nothing to fear...



Now don't get too close
to the passion flower,
who knows what will happen
if you inhale...


swipe some sunflower seeds
if you must..


Care to try mixing some potions?
it's super easy...

The magic is all there,
catch it if you can...

mmmmm can you smell the yellow rose?


oh goodness the magic is everywhere...

I see you've mixed up some
herbs...don't
forget the buddlea..


the brooms are anxious
to begin...

but first enjoy, take in the
aromas...


a little lemon grass fused with lavender
...with a teeny tiny touch
of sunflower..dabbed
behind the ears...
your sure to attract...


my broom IS ready...
I am off to visit
my witchy friends.

I hope you all had a great time
and please come visit again.

Thank you to our lovely
hostess Anna
this has been lots of fun for me.

Hugs...
Sylvia
