Gypsy Tents And Gypsy Dreams

Hello and welcome to my gypsy dreams!

I bought this card at an art fair when I was much younger. Something about it just spoke to me. I guess I have always had a little gypsy inside.

A storm is brewing....

so please, come into my tent and make yourself comfortable.

Have a look around, I insist!

I see you eyeing my gypsy treasure...

perhaps I will give you a piece when I send you on your way.

I have something all prepared. Can I offer you a spot of tea? It's Russian Caravan, with its rich smokey flavor it is perfect for the gypsy soul.


Oh look someone has come to join us (I think more for the milk than for the tea).

Other visitors may stop by as well.

It seems to be growing dark, perhaps we should light some candles.

 That is better.

Would you like me to tell your fortune for you?

I can read your cards....

or see your future in my crystal.

Well it is getting late, you should probably go before you can no longer find your way home. But if you ever feel that wanderlust, or are in need of a bit of magic, please come back.

I will leave a lantern burning for you...

Thanks for dropping by my Gypsy Dreams party! To see the list of other partiers head over to the Gypsy Dreams blog.

  30. Hi there,

    Thanks to Anna’s great Practical Magic blog party website I know that you are taking part in the event. I have pondered how to participate and thought it would be neat to post anonymously people’s thoughts and/or secrets regarding the movie. Sites which inspired me are:

    Post Secret
    Walt Disney Confessions

    Those thoughts or secrets could e.g. be “I have already watched the movie 1,000 times,” “I wish I had a sister like Gilly,” “The aunts’ house is my dream house,” “I have dreamt about Jimmy” etc. Anything which comes to your mind when you think of “Practical Magic.”

    If you feel like helping me out, be sure to send me your thought/secret as soon as possible at Of course, I handle each “confession” anonymously. And – please nothing x-rated!

    Greetings from Germany,

  31. All that pictures are most gorgeous. I am glad to see that.
