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

sharing my vintage home

remember these ? I know alot of people collect them but this one is so special as the beads around the edge were from the one my paternal grandma *florence emily* used every day. I had my first mother in law crochet the middle for me about 28 years ago ( the dear has died and gone to heaven - God bless her) and she crocheted the beads into the edging for me. I remember as a child, sitting at the little pine table in my grandma's house and playing with the beads around hers. They are glass and not one is perfect

Funny you should post this because I was in an antique store with my mum on Wednesday and we were mulling over these milk jug covers for ages trying to decide which one to buy - it was about 5 minutes in that we both realised we don't actually have milk jugs *shock and horror*! I thought that I would have to rectify that problem, though on coming home I noticed I have 2 (one from my partners mum and one which was my grandmothers)sitting on top of my kitchen cabinets - I never realised I had them because I've never used them! I am going to make a conscious effort to make tea with the milk in one of these little jugs on this very weekend to come.
