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

Alice and her mad hatters tea party

A good time had by all. I was absolutely exhausted by the end but it was fun and all the *kids* were really lovely, well mannered young people. Their parents should be proud.
We decorated the table with confetti, which ended up all through my house. Now I understand why it is forbidden at most churches and public places. However, it is all vacuumed up now, I think. I have posted a few pics today, with a few more to come later on.

Hi ms*robyn, how do I see the pictures? About the shrug, the directions are in the Sept.issue of 'Threads' magazine. You need a 1 by 1-1/2 yd rectangle of material with a drape & along the long side it must be able to stretch as in ....stretching 4" to 5". The raw edges are turned under or you can add trim. When you get to a store look for this mag and have a peek. = ). As for the porch swing, its oak in the, oh boy, how do I spell this style ? Ummm, rounded tops and slanty seats seen on the A...chairs for the lawn. I have two of those, one painted bright yellow and one thats cobalt blue. I like color! Wishing you a restful Sunday....glad you're daughter's party was so specially fun!

oh maggie, you mean adirondack ! I had a couple of those chairs on my lawn but they fell apart. My grandpa made me a small version when I was little & my dear husband bought me an exact same one for my 40th birthday.I often wonder if it is my own from my childhood. To see the pics, there is a link in my side bar. enjoy !
