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

* slow food *

here in the Blue Mountains there are quite a lot of old homes with old gardens. Many fruit trees bear fruit, year after year with most of it going to waste. A group of fun people have joined together to get all these fruit trees onto a community register and each year some will gather the fruit and others will make it into jams; pickles & chutneys. I have an 80 year old apple tree that bears prolifically each year and there are only so many apple pies and crumbles that we can eat. I also have a persimmon tree that bears well. This group also goes out to dinner once a month to an organic restaurant that uses all local produce. I decided to join up today...it sounds like lots of fun and plenty of sharing of ideas. They call themselves the slow food group as nothing is fast * they take time to sit at a table enjoying home grown produce with friends and like minded people * how perfect !!!!

I love the concept of the "slow food" movement and slowly but surely it is making an impact on more and more communities...good for you ms*robyn for doing your bit ~ wonderful!

This just caused me to take a deep, relaxing breath thinking of you all getting together like this.

Bet you'll make some special friends too in the bargain!
