Hocus Pocus it's Pink Saturday






So, it all started when my sister Lynne and her husband were here for a visit.  Lynne loves the movie Hocus Pocus, which was filmed in Salem, Massachusetts.




Off we went for a day trip, and as often as I have visited this historical and fun town, I have never actually seen the house that they used for the movie...until our day together.




Right after  Lynne left, I missed her already, and I went to buy a little gift to send to her.  I went to this wonderful old fabric mill.



OMG, I never knew about Alexander Henry Fabric Collection.  I spotted this fabric from across the room, and knew it was soooooooooo perfectly Lynne.

I got some trim,




and a few funky buttons to match.







I thought it was just the right amount of magic to add to her inspiration.





I know that she'll turn this into something magical.




When I returned from shopping I did a little research about this fabric design and others.  One design after another and I was totally in love.









I guess you could say that this fabric collection has cast a spell on me, and filled me with fabric inspiration.

Of course I couldn't help but notice the pink in this fabric.  A perfect Pink Saturday fabric design.  I suppose you might say that Bev from How Sweet The Sound, and her Pink ladies creates Pink magic every week.  So, stop by and be inspired pink.


My sister Lynne, and my brother-in-law, Steve are visiting my sister Susan and her husband Bob in Pennsylvania.  If I pop this package in the mail today, it will be there when she arrives home in North Carolina.













The song for this post is I Put A Spell On You from the movie Hocus Pocus.





Have a magical weekend,

That is really great fabric Karen especially at this time of year! I have always loved Hocus Pocus also and own a copy of the movie which I drag out right around Halloween!
I hope your friend Lynne will share a photo or two of whatever she makes with the fabric!
Have a great weekend!
