People always ask me about my spell books. Spell books are very personal and usually kept very private but I think this subject deserves a post so I am going to share some of mine with you. I have filled many spell books over time and this is my current one. I bought it at The Broom Closet in Salem.
Spell books are just elaborate journals. I collect vintage German Halloween diecuts and use a lot of them to decorate my books.
I also paste favorite picture like this one. Look closely to the right of the strawberry pot. Who is that?
This was taken the first week we had Teddy.
Chow Chows ears take a few months to stand up straight.
We tried a few futile attempts at first to teach her to listen. She quickly trained us.
If I come across a particularly nice poem or picture, I add it too.
This is a picture of my nephew's new born son alongside of a piece of dried evergreen from my yard.
I press flowers from my garden and glue them to the pages.
This hydrangea took up one whole page.
Here is another pic of the little tank. One of her nicknames is Teddy the Tank.
This is one of my favorite pictures of her. She has always laid flat on the belly belly with her little legs stretched out behind her. You can see that she was running around in the mud before laying down to rest.
At this age it was easy to get her in and out of the car. Not anymore!

I journal in my spell book daily.
Anything that catches my interest goes in the book.
This handmade card was sent to me from a witch.
I always glue all of my Halloween cards in the book.
Another handmade card from another witch.
I save notes and thank you cards I receive.
A very good friend in New York sent this card to me.
I will show more pics of the book soon. I write the good and the bad and everything in between.
