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

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.
