My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

brown*paper*parcels ~ my vintage bookshelf ~ Heidi

on April 10th * 2005 this is what I wrote about one of my favourite books :

*oh ! how I loved to read Heidi when I was a little girl.I would make myself a little package with a piece of cheese and some bread, wrap it in an old teatowel and go into my cubby and sit and read Heidi for as long as I could.I always wanted to go and live with the Alm uncle in the Alps and sleep in her little straw bed up in the loft. I would cry when she was sent to live with Clara and my heart would ache when her aunt was so mean*

I really love you whole site - it's beautiful. My son-in-law is Swiss and I visited them in Switzerland twice. The countryside is so lovely, straight out of a picture book and you expect to meet Heidi around every corner.

We have more and more in common...Heidi still sits on my bookshelf along with Heidi Grows Up and Heidi's Children. Imagination is a wonderful thing for a child to have, isn't it! I didn't go as far as you with the bread and cheese, but I always liked the sound of the simple food Heidi lived on!
