Thank You!

Monday, September 26, 2011

I am so humbled by your kind comments and emails concerning my Practical Magic Blog Party post.  I have never received so many comments before on any other post!  Thank-you.

This is all that is left of my "conservatory."  A couple of neighborhood kids came over and thought it looked like  Mad Scientist Lab (these are the guys who go into schools with fun science experiments that are part magic show). So I had to take down most of it.



If you have not done so, please join Anna at Frosted Petunias for the Practical Magic Blog Party.  It has been so much fun visiting everyone's party!

Practical Magic Blog Party

Until next time...

  1. Oh, I'm so sad it's gone. It was really amazing! I enjoyed it very much.

  2. It was so much fun! I am still reading parties!

  3. Hi Ricki Jill
    I've just had the best time catching up on all your recent posts from the Magical party through book reviews to your happy list.
    What a treat it's been to see it all.

  4. Aww sorry you couldn't keep it for a while, you did an amazing job on it.

  5. aww, how sad to have to take it down
    I sure you enjoyed it while it was up.
    It was so cool

  6. Oh I was out of town for five days and missed your post. I did not have a computer, so now this week I am catching up!! I LOVED your conservatory! It was amazing. I so love candles and glass and crystal and all the herbs and greenery..sigh...well anyway, I enjoyed reading about it all. You really threw yourself into this one!!!

  7. I think it is amazing how great the tapers look in the crystal...simple and yet very impressive.

  8. Kids, what do they know about vignettes and decorating, right? :-) I think it looked fabulous...sad that it's gone...but this new one is pretty fabulous too. Wishing you a wonderful new week.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  9. Your conservatory was amazing, no wonder you had so many wonderful comments! Where did you get those sweet little them, especially the wavy rimmed one! :)

  10. I just went through some of your older posts and I just have to say that your creativity knows no bounds. I seriously think you missed your calling as an event planner. And I agree with Cindy - no wonder you had so many wonderful comments! All deserved.

  11. No wonder you got so many comments your posts are amazing. I love this space I say to ignore those kiddies!


  12. it was wonderful to share this with. Big hugs!!

  13. Your decor for the part post truly was amazing! My favorite was the tapers in the crystal and the candle light!

    Wishing you a lovely week!


  14. Your Practical Magic post is beautiful. Again, out of the loop!
