Autumn Colors of Salem

It is difficult to capture how stunning this tree is. I cannot even think what color to call this. It is a toss up between red and orange mixed. Gorgeous.

This tree is behind the infamous Magic Muffler on Bridge Street in Salem MA. My old VW Bug spent many nights being fixed by Larry, the owner of Magic Muffler back when we lived here 7 years ago. I will be eternally grateful for Larry's generosity and honesty. My VW bug died in Alexandria VA.  It was good to run into him again since we have moved back. Sad to hear that this shop will be closing soon and will be turned into more condos.

Here is a photo of the Four Paws Acupuncture paws-mobile and an very old add. The dog in the car is Zack aka The Wookie, who has also passed on. Zach's owner Katherine owns Professional Pet Services of Salem MA. Best dog walking service in the area! Our pets love her and are happy to be back in Salem.

Things to do on a rainy dreary day

It is dreary and rainy here today in the Witch City. If you are bored and don't want to waste the day watching TV or worse... news - why not learn how to create your very own Spirit Art Doll?

This class is about 1.5 hours long. It took several months to film and edit.

In this 1.5 hour class you will learn to make two different types of dolls. One created with sticks and branches. The other with wooden BBQ skewers. You will also be taught how to make your own paper clay doll faces, as well as how to use fabric, ribbons, beads and found objects to decorate and dress your doll. We will also cover how to add special details and how to hang or display your finished doll.

Modules include:

Setting the Intention of the Spirit Doll
How to select sticks & branches.
How to make paper clay faces.
Painting paper clay faces.
How to assemble, dress and adorn the doll.
Finishing touches and details

Watch the Birth of a Spirit Doll Class YouTube!

This class is available on Udemy and the price varies. Right now it is on sale. Makes a great gift for those crafty artist people on your holiday gift list.

Don't feel like watching a class? We also have DIY Spirit Art Doll Kits with everything you need to make your own doll, poppet or ornament. Just add your own fabric, sticks and imagination. Tools and glue not included.

Who wants to go to the beach?

Scenes from the Practical Magic Salem Studio

Luna miso Poosie has claimed the sunny window ledge in my sun porch studio. I started feeding the birds right outside the window so the cats could have birdie tv all day. (They are indoor cats and are never allowed out!)

Nubi juan Kenobi prefers to nap on any surface i may need to use to work.  I dare not disturb him! 

When the sun is out the studio gets nice and toasty. Not sure how it will be during those cold winter months. May need a space heater or just surrender and work in the house. I will let the cats decide what is best!

Visit our online shop for handmade jewelry, art and magickal baubles created in the Practical Magic Salem Studio.

New Moon Magic!

Winter Island 
Salem MA

Wishing all a very happy New Moon in Scorpio today. This new moon is a great time to make positive changes in our lives. Letting go of the past and forgiveness. 

October has been a crazy month here in Salem MA. Haunted Happenings celebrations, Halloween, Samhain, crowds, tourists and traffic. As much as i love the season, i am happy that it is now November and the Witch City has become a quiet little town again. The beach at Winter Island is peaceful and the only crowds are laughing sea gulls. Ahhhhh!

We just added more magical jewelry to the Whispers of the O'Fae Shop. I love working with semiprecious Amethyst gemstones which is so perfect use in rituals or wear as a talisman.

Amethyst is known as the magician's stone. It is used in magical ceremonies, healing and is one of the most popular semiprecious stones. It calms the mind. Aids in forgiveness and for those who hold grudges. Used for protection. When in doubt, wear amethyst! The color violet has the highest vibration of all colors.

Scenes from Salem on Halloween Night!

Great trio of witches sitting in the Salem Commons. Behind them is the old school that was in the movie Hocus Pocus.

Gandalf the Grey - aka my husband Norm!

Christian Protesters thinking they will convert all of us heathens on Halloween night! They appear every year.
