The Real Practical Magic Blog Party Post: with Give-Away!
"Of all the Owens women, Jet Owens was the most beautiful, and she never even noticed. She preferred cats to human beings and turned down every offer from the men who fell in love with her. The only one she ever cared for was that boy who was hit by lightning when he and his brother went tearing off across the town green to prove how brave and daring they were. Sometimes, late at night, Jet and Frances both hear the sound of those boys laughing as they run through the rain, then stumble into the darkness. Their voices are still young and filled with expectation, exactly as they sounded at the moment they were struck down."
The give-away: 15 milliliters of Aunt Jet's Lavender Oil! This is my mix of several types of lavender essential oil, sweet almond oil, and food-grade lavender blossoms. Wear it as perfume, anoint cuts with it for better healing, dress candles for love and protection with it. Or come up with your own practical & magical use!
To enter the give-away, leave me a comment telling which PM quote I have posted was/is your favorite: Gillian broke hearts, The aunts tell you to look, What to do in August, or Aunt Jet the Beautiful.
I'll select the winner on October 1st! I have visited a few lovely posts, and I'm looking forward to wending my way through many more. I hope you always remember to plant roses & lavender for luck. And fall in love whenever you can.
