Practical Magic Revisited {Video Review} 

The days are ticking down to the second annual Practical Magic Blog Party.  This could raise a few questions, like what is a blog party and why Practical Magic?  A blog party is a virtual get-together in which a number of bloggers create blogs around a certain theme. Often it includes giveaways, drawings, and frivolity.

For the second part, Practical Magic is a book-turned-movie with wonderful imagery and story that captivated the hearts of those who wish for a little magic in their lives. The Practical Magic Blog Party offers just that.

I have been busily preparing for this year’s soiree, but what would this year be without reminiscing on last year’s adventure!

In September of last year, artist hubby and I took a week long trip to the Northwestern Coast.  We visited Portland and Seattle.  As we were preparing for the trip, I began researching the movie in hopes of coming up with a genius idea for my take on the theme for the blog party.  Time passed quickly and I was afraid I would show up to the party empty handed.

As luck would have it though, I discovered that the little town where the movie was shot happened a short broom’s ride from Seattle in Coupeville, WA.  I formulated a plan and walked away with these lovely offerings.

 I hope you will consider these results an appetizer.

Let me take you on a tour of Coupeville’s waterfront, tell you stories that the villagers told me about the the cast and crew of Practical Magic and give you a first hand look at the magic of this place.

Verbina’s Botanicals: an interview with the current owner the herb shop in the movie.  She says her shop was perfect for the movie.  Find out why! (This video is my fave!)

A quick peek at the outside of Verbina’s Botanicals.

Vitality in Coupeville:  the wise old aunts in Practical Magic were full of vitality, could Coupeville be the secret?

In the movie, Sally’s husband is nearly run down by a pack of bikes.  This silly little clip is a play on that….and a great chance to meet my artist hubby.
