About Me

My photo
A blog for all things pretty. Pretty vintage, pretty crafty, pretty thrifty, and just plain pretty...I'm a sucker for artistic modifications. I also LOVE a great bargain..If I can create something beautiful for under $20 I'm a HAPPY girl! I also LOVE anything vintage and chic. Hense my title The Shabby "Schick" (My last name is Schick. My friend came up with it, Thanks Jami!) Not to be confused with "chic"...even though I am that too! lol

A little "Practical Magic"....

I LOVE the movie Practical Magic. It's in my top 5 movies of all time! After spending HOURS exploring blogs today, and drooling over all the crafts and projects I need to be making, then feeling overwhelmed....I can't describe to you how excited I was to run across a blog devoted ENTIRELY to this movie! http://pmblogparty.blogspot.com/

They are having a blog party on Sept 25.. (the day after my birthday, how perfect is that!?) In order to be a participant you have to create something that has to do with the movie (or the book...garden spells)...I am SO all over this! My wheels are turning and I have SO many ideas....I don't even know where to start!....Here comes that overwhelmed feeling again.. Will I be able to get all the projects and crafts done that I want before Oct 1st? I'd like to think so.
But there are some things I know for certain: always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.

  4. Happy late birthday Renee. I'm familiar with the craft explosion in your head that leaves you reeling with 1000 good ideas and not enough time! As another Renee I think it's gotta have something to do with our name. LOL Well Happy Practical Magic Blog Party none the less! :D
