A Practical Magic Giveaway

One of my favorite parts of the movie Practical Magic is the Aunts. I love their eccentricity and their style. I would love to wear vintage hats and clothes but, I don't have the wardrobe or the courage!

To celebrate Fran, Jet and Practical Magic I'm giving away this pretty victorian witch pendant. Fran and Jet's style seem to be more Edwardian but, this witch reminds me of them none the less. If you look closely, I think you can see the Owen's house in the background.

 The pendant will come on a organza ribbon necklace (length up to your specification) the pendant measures 1x2 inches and is set in a copper tray with a glass overlay. If you'd like to be entered into the drawing become a follower on my blog and leave a post or if you are already following just let me know in a post as well. Be sure to leave me your contact info.

I'll draw a name at random one week from Saturday and announce the winner here. I'm so glad you've flown over to visit. Enjoy the party and good luck!
