Witchery Silver Pendant $12

Practical Magic

Our post is inspired by the house from Practiacal Magic. It's such a beautiful and enchanting house (click here for more info on the house). It brings to mind memories of other bewitching houses from the past. So here is a look at a few favorites and some witchy designs from the shop. Enjoy!

Vintage Witches Charm Bracelet $45

The Munsters

The first stop on our tour is 1313 Mocking Bird Lane and Lily and Herman's House. Beautiful in all it's Munster glory or in it's new life as one of the Wisteria Lane houses on Desperate Housewives. Take a trip to Universal Studios in California and you'll see it on the back lot tour. Click here for more info on the house.

Ouija Board Retro Ring $12


Next we arrive at 1164 Morning Glory Circle to see the Steven's house. This house was the home of my all time favorite witch. Samantha was one of the best and I still hope to one day master the nose twitch. Tinka Tinka Tee! Click here for more info about the house.

Vintage Witch Style C Silver Pendant $12

The Addams Family

Then it's 0001 Cemetery Lane to visit The Addams. Mortica and Gomez's home is said to be inspired by creator Charles Addams' boyhood home. Though we only saw a painting of it in the opening credits it is the ideal "fashionable" haunted house. Click here for more info on the house.

Halloween at Midnight Charm Bracelet $45


And as a lovely end to our tour we have The Psycho House. One of the most iconic images from the screen. It's truely creepy and absolutely beautiful at the same time. Again, you can find this one on the back lot tour of Universal Studios in California along side The Bates Motel. Mmmmuuuhaahaahaa! Click here for more info on the house and motel.

The Owl and The Black Cat Silver Pendant $12
