Name:
Location: Culburra Beach , NSW, Australia

I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

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

housekeeping

lots to do today ! as usual I am cleaning the bathrooms, changing our bed sheets and vacuuming & dusting the bedroom. And as I have said many times.... it is the routine of it that keeps me sane and routine that keeps my home fresh
I wash my sheets in a 'green' detergent with a scoop of powdered borax * lavender oil in the rinse water and hang in the fresh air and sunshine to dry! I buy a wonderful water soluble lavender water from the supermarket * a few drops is plenty
I love to slip into bed on Monday nights... those lovely fresh, crisp & clean sheets.
Even during winter, I like to leave our french doors in our bedroom, open during the day * just to let the fresh air blow through * fresh air is always good! Fresh flowers on Mondays are a must in the bedroom * just a few picked from the garden.... and later in the afternoon I light a small tea light * either lavender or rose, turn on my Jesus lamp and it's ready for our night of pleasant dreams

I'm doing exactly the same today Robyn, I must buy some of that lavender solution too.

I agree with the open windows and doors to let fresh air into the house. I loathe that stale smell that houses can get, all it takes is some fresh air every now and then to make a home feel like it is breathing. Yes, I want to get lavender water now too!

Nothing beats a clean, beautifully smelling home...I love using the soluble lavender water too ~ it's divine ~ I mix some up in a spray bottle and after cleaning a room, like to make a couple of light sprays on the window blinds/curtains.

Your post turns into a picture in my mind....its not clear, but something from a glossy page in a magazine...or a dreamy scene from one of our old 'Victoria magazines'. Or better yet, one of the scenes from the book 'Old Rose and Silver'. ms*robyn, you have perfected the art of homemaking...I love it!
