Midnight Margaritas!

Visit here for all the details
and full listing of guests!
Welcome to my little table at the 2011 Practical Magic Blog Party! Wow a whole year has passed since the last party.... did I meet you here last year? I thought I recognised you.... it's great to see so many faces back here again....

I just love this movie....Practical Magic.... Stockard Channing and Diane Weist (not forgetting Sandra Bullock and our own Nicole Kidman!!!) are just my favourites .... I've loved Stockard ever since I saw her as Rizzo in GREASE when I was a kid (yes, the FIRST time it was released!!!) and Diane Weist when she played Mum in The Lost Boys (and of course who couldn't adore a young Keifer Sutherland vampire!)  Well, in case you didn't catch my story about this movie at the last party, you can find it here in my scrapbook album....
Short story - it was the first movie I saw with my husband of now 11 years.... well, okay, we met as a result of a self inflicted Practical (Magic) Joke... as a lark I put an advert in a singles magazine (really too lazy to keep looking for a man).  It cost me $5.  As soon as I read G's response, I knew that he was the 'one' ....before his photo fell out, and before I met him.  And he had only purchased the magazine because he couldn't find the magazine he really wanted in a tiny seaside town. I'd say THAT was Practically Magic....

This year, I want to show you some jewellery creations that I have made....

I love butterflies, and they are such a powerful talisman and symbol to so many walks of life, so many seasons and events ...

I love that their life is ever-evolving and accepting of change.... something that I aspire to be, but sometimes don't quite achieve. I picked orange, cream and brown pearls on brass to celebrate the Autumn (even though it's Spring here in Australia!)...

My next creation showcases the magic that is a circle....another powerful symbol for so many... and the Number 3 ....

On a double brass chain, are three circles that are encrusted with faceted rhinestones.... the close up shows their detail.

After I made this one, it appeared that while wearing it, face on it looks just like circles..... but when you get closer, it can be something completely different (the rhinestones are not obvious in the front view) .... kinda like life, really....

I love to make earrings as well, so I made a dangly pair on brass, with some abstract charms I had laying in my treasure box....

Thank you for visiting my blog .... and I do hope you enjoy the Practical Magic Blog Party...... and if you're visiting me from outside the party... I thank you for visiting too! Thanks for peepin'! And have a margarita on me!
