daily musings of a vintage addict * I am totally obsessed with all things vintage * trying to keep up with my past...and sometimes ordinary everyday life

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

my wonderful day ~ July 27

Today, instead of housekeeping, I went out with my patchwork friends. We drove to Balmain * an inner city suburb* and did some serious shopping. Quite a few home decorator shops ~ very french & oh so nice. I bought some absolutely divine almond cream soap * some lovely note paper with french rabbits on it & the most delightful retro style blouse. Oh ! and a vintage style flower bobby pin for my hair. I could have spent lots more time & money but will go back with my daughters one day soon.
Then we went to a friends pub for lunch * pate de fois * a tiny scallop wrapped in bacon & prunes * pumpkin & asparagus risotto for my main and for dessert I had berry & vanilla bean panacotta..delish and there goes my diet.....ah well walking it will have to be for the next few days.

Your outing sounds wonderful. Do French rabbits look any different to Australian rabbits?

Oh that sounds so wonderful. And don't you love having daughters who you can take when you do it again?

What luxury to have a day like that.
