Mrs B Gives Away Everything But The Kitchen Sink!

Mrs B over at Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom is having yet another giveaway! I'm starting to think that if it isn't nailed down in her house... she might give it away! Poor Mr B! :) This time its a very delicious sounding novel... and I would love to win it! Check it out!

Bewitched.. isn't that a breathtaking word? I just finished watching a bit of a Jane Austen marathon... first the British miniseries "Lost in Austen" and then because I was already in the mood, "Pride and Prejudice." I've read the book before, but somehow it escaped me just how deliciously wonderful Mr Darcy's exclamation of love is to Elizabeth! "You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on." Wouldn't you just melt like cheap chocolate???? This got me thinking about what some of my favorite movie lines are... and my all time favorite still has to be the last line of "Some Like it Hot." Nobody's perfect! That's all. It seems like such a small line, but it had me in stitches for an hour! Anyone out there in blogger land feel like sharing their favorite movie quotes???

Pagan/Wiccan Reads

I am really looking for some help here... I am in the midst of my research and education about Wicca and Paganism... and I think I always will be! I'm wondering what books/authors/websites/etc have been really helpful and inspirational to all of you... and would you mind terribly recommending them to me? I have a bookshelf overflowing with books already...and I really need a reason to need another one!

Halloween is a-comin!

I am so excited for Halloween this year! We should be moved and getting settled into our new place just before then, and I hope to be able to go all out! In bloggety world, I am taking part in two special Halloween events that I am so excited about! The first is over at Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom she is planning Mrs. B's 31 Days of Halloween... it is a 'Walking Tour' of the Blog world, with a different blog featured for every day of the month. I am going to be one of the 31 days! Mrs B is such a sweetheart, with such a great blog, I was thrilled to be able to take part! Also, I found another awesome blog today that is a new favorite of mine! It is A Fanciful Twist and she has a darling party scheduled for October 17th. I immediately became a follower, and begged her to let me in on the party! I have been wanting to shake up my blogs design a little bit... I probably will as the start of next month to prepare for my own Halloween themed post... and I have a few fun things planned too... I'm not above buying followers! :) I hope if they come for the prizes, they will stay for the content.... at least I dream they will! I hope that you all (by that I mean the faithful followers I now have, and the ones I am shamelessly hoping to lure) will stop by and check it all out... See the buttons on my sidebar to go directly to event pages...
Lots of love! xoxoxox (The last photo is just because the skeleton guy in Mrs. B's poster reminds me so much of Achmed the Dead Terrorist... who is by far my FAVORITE puppet of all time!)

Happy Sunday Morning

I realized that I haven't written a full post in a while, so I thought I'd try to. I have a list somewhere of all the things I want to blog about, and for the life of me... I can't find it! Yes, I am the creative-I-don't-know-where-my-shit-is-but-I-have-a-system type....! So far life has been very interesting the past couple of weeks. Chris quit his job (it was horrible) and I lost mine (damn economy) so we have decided for sure we are moving back to Moses Lake (where we moved here from a year ago) as soon as our lease is up and we have moving money. Which translates to probably the end of September. However, Chris started looking for work in Moses Lake since he has family there he can stay with during the weeks, and now he is starting a new job this week. I also found a job through the temp agency I have been working with, so I start on Monday. We plan to round up some boxes today, so that when we have time we can start the packing process.... which I always loathe. But it does get me into a bit of a Spring Cleaning jump, because I find there are things that I don't think are worth the effort of moving, and that's a pretty big sign that I don't need it anymore. I love to thrift shop, so I usually acquire too many tchotchkes everywhere I live! But new cities, means new thrift shops! Speaking of which, we burned up our drink blender a while back and decided to hit a few thrift stores yesterday to find one cheap.... no such luck. But we did find something else that I think is fabulous! An adorable pop-corn popper! Here it is:

It's just an air popper, but how cute is that!!! Since all of our kitchen gadgets are red, black, or white, it fits in perfectly!
On a different note completely...
I have volunteered for Mrs B's 31 Days of Halloween event... and I am trying to decide on a delicious giveaway to feature... I have a few crafts that I dabble in and I thought I'd share some pictures and see if anyone likes them, and can suggest anything... Please comment if you read this... I know I have followers, but I'd really like to hear from you if you are reading my words...
Below are the pictures... and I have much love for all of you!

Harry Potter in Seattle circa 1993?

I just watched Harry Potter and the Half- Blood Prince at the theater, My family treated me for my upcoming birthday. And while I will keep my opinion to myself about the movie itself, unless you ask of course, I did notice and disturbing trend in Harry's wardrobe! Flannel! Really I found 4 places in the movie where he is wearing a hideous plaid flannel shirt! Harry there is a reason that 'trend' died with the 90's... IT SUCKED!
