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

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 ~ childhood dreams

from brown-paper-parcels April 21st, 2005 ~

when I was a little girl, I loved to cook ~ oh not ordinary cooking - NO! I would whip up the most amazing mud pies for my dollies. I would set up an afternoon tea and serve the most amazingly decorated mud pies..decorated with lovely flowers from my dad's garden.......time went on and I became a mum and loved to cook for my first born ~ yummy things like broccoli and spinach ~ just what every little two year old loves to eat.
I love to have a huge pot of my nan's beef and barley soup simmering on my stove during winter and I love to cook real rolled oats for breakfast

Nothing gives me more pleasure than cooking up a storm and inviting family and friends over for lunch or dinner ~ I put my Edith Piaf music on and sing away in french ( have no idea what I am singing ) and whip up a storm............ YES I did want to be a chef

There is nothing I like better than to be in the kitchen, cooking 'real' food

Ah...beef and barley soup - my mum used to make huge pots of that in winter and we all loved it. Mum's recipe was in her head and she never wrote it down, so I have tried to remember how she made it, but it just doesn't taste the same.
