Welcome to my newest blog. What is a kimberline you ask? Well where I live in Portland, Dorset, it is a nickname given to newcomers to the Island. Yes Portland is an Island seperated from Weymouth by a causeway. Its part of the Jurassic coast and I love living here. I will be posting lots of different things I hope you enjoy visiting here. Hugs Sara

Practical magic post

My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage! - Aunt Frances Owens
ITs funny but that quote means a lot to me.  I was always wishing I was normal growing up, because of my health issues.  My mum said pretty much the same thing to me.  Now who I am is ME.

The house, wouldnt you just give anything for that house.  All that magic in the garden, the love spell, I love how the roses floated up past the moon.
Practical Magic.  You know I just love that film.  It has always been one of my favourites.  I love the aunts.  I think they are such great characters.  I adore the wacky costumes they wore.
When the girls realise he is the one and they go all that way to get rid of the potion Gillian had made to make him go away.  Its a shame that he came in only half way through the movie.  He's just gorgeous, dont you think?
I just so love the ending when they do this and everyone is watching in awe. 

so remember, plant lavender for luck and always toss the salt over your shoulder

A lovely post. I think I must have visited at least 100 posts yesterday and today of people telling what they love about the movie and book. Nearly every one of them has mentioned the aunts house in the movie. I think it's one of the reasons I keep watching the film year after year.

That line from the movie is my favorite quote of all time I think. Isn't it amazing how so many of us are inspired by this film? Thank you so much for sharing your favorite moments and for joining the party again this year. Have a beautiful October :)
