A Little Practical *Magic* Giveaway!

Apologies for coming to the blog party a wee bit late, but *magic* is abounding here in the studio as well, and sometimes it can be a wee bit...well, distracting, hehe. :)

But I'm so happy to take a break in honor of one of my favorite all time books and movies! In fact, "Practical Magic" inspiration has been swirling around in my head for weeks now...

"Spellcasting"...


"Midnight Margaritas"...

"My darling Girl.."...

I can't make up my mind which print is a favorite, so I thought I'd leave the choice up to the giveaway winner - you may choose whichever you like. :) All you need do to enter is leave a comment here, and I'll draw a name on Oct 5th. Be sure to leave me a way to contact you...

Back to the studio for me now (major show prep underway), but I hope to do a little blog hopping later. Until then, wishing you a day of magic and wonder!

♥ Carolee
PS - My Etsy shop is out of most of the Practical Magic prints now, but I'll be replenishing them after I get back from Michigan (the week of the 5th)

I've always loved how she had her little spell on what her true love would look like. My sisters and I did the same and I found mine exactly as I had pictured him! Beautiful work Carolee!! (Rebecca's oldest ;))

I love the first one! Just adorable!!

“O, swear not by the moon, the fickle moon, the inconstant moon, that
monthly changes in her circle orb, lest that thy love prove likewise variable.” --Hello dear...if my name comes out of the magic giveaway hat, I will choose the enchanting #1 with it's fluttering prayer rising.

These are magical, Carolee. I would be thrilled to own one of your pieces... even a print! I'd choose the first. A girl can't have too many spells.

They are all wonderful. my favorite is the Midnight Margaritas. Practical Magic is one of my favorite movies as well.

AvraE said...

They are all fabulous! I think Midnight Margaritas is my fav, but I'm not sure...they are all just too fun! My mother and sisters and I always watch this around Halloween. :) We daydream of living in that house too.

As always, you have brought a little bit of Autumn into my still Summer weather. Beautiful for certain! We need some "Halloween Carols"!

maddyrose said...

Lovely to find that you're joining in the blog party. I've watched you getting into the swing of things and wouldn't mind having any one of your beautiful pieces but would have to say that "My Darling Girl" is my favorite.

rhomany said...

Some really magical pieces and from my favourite film too. I think it would be very hard to choose between them.

Lee said...

So hard to decide but Spellcasting is awfully cute!
So nice of you to offer a give away!
See you next weekend!

petoskystone said...

how wonderful! i *will* be potting up some rosemary & lavender next season (in containers as i rent, * i want to take them with should i move), but the third print is my favorite reminder that there is safety in my oddness ;)

Anonymous said...

Practical Magic has been one of my favorite movies since it came out! Aunt Frances was fantastic. I love them all, but the third is my favorite. Jean (Thisisridiculous95@yahoo.com)

So GLAD to see these are available as prints now. LOVE the last one.........the line about being normal denoting a rather lack of courage is one of my favorite lines from one of my most favorite movies! Congratulations on your success and your husband's good health! Blessings & happy painting! Rachel at TheHouseThatGothBuilt@gmail.com

kdkdkd said...

Love that movie and book as well and I would choose "Spellcasting". If only such a house as was in that movie existed in this world ... it is truly my dream house.

Now that I finally made it here....oh my goodness!!! I have seen your PM art mentioned as I make my rounds and just love all of them. I couldn't really choose, but maybe Midnight Margaritas because it reminds me of this party. Thank you so much for being a part of this event and for offering such a generous gift. Your work is magical :)

Much success at your upcoming show.

I bought `my darling girl' at the ghoultide gathering for my little one - I cant wait to hang it in her room. I'm thinking I could use a midnight margarita for myself! Thanks for sharing your talent with the world!

kit maribeaux said...

Oh my, choosing would be so difficult. I identify with each one! but I have to say the last one makes me think of the movie-although what the Aunt said resonates so much with me. I love margaritas--but I think...I identify most with not only the figure on the first-but what's written on the border.
