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

honey ! I'm home

HOME ! there is no place like it ... but what a great weekend we had. First stop was a little town called Portland where I was lucky enough to find the local St Vincent de Paul open for business... I hit the jackpot in that shop ~ 6 vintage aprons and two 1930's religious pictures all for the princely sum of ' $2 - thanks dear'.

Then a lovely drive through some gorgeous countryside.. arriving just in time for lunch at a local pub. After lunch we visited a few boutique wineries, purchased some lovely wines and generally had fun driving among the vineyards ~ we arrived at our accomodation around 3 on Saturday afternoon and had a lovely long nap. Dinner was superb ...dessert to die for - creme caramel with stewed rhubarb. Breakfast this morning was served in a gorgeous garden room and then off to a few more wineries. I also found a great shop called 'Heavenly Mary' which sold all manner of religious articles. I bought the most divine necklace made from red, vintage glass rosary beads, a few little bells and the most gorgeous crucifix... I love it! And some wonderful napkins for my daughter in law with a picture of a nun on them... and the words 'SISTER MARY MERLOT' .....she will have a laugh with the local nuns about that one!

Glad it was such an enjoyable weekend. I think I need lessons in 'spotting a bargain' or just need to visit more charity shops.
