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

housekeeping ~ September 1st

oh! its a glorious spring day! I am going to throw my kitchen windows open to the fresh spring air - put on some suitable music and clean my little heart out. The kitchen is so dreadfully messy right now. So today I am give it & the dining room a thorough going over ~ tidying up all those papers that have accumulated in piles over the past weeks.....vacuuming & washing the floors, cleaning the benches & getting it all ready for the bridal shower on Saturday.

and I am going to make up a spring room freshener :

2 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops eucalyptus oil
4 drops orange/lemon essential oil
1 cup distilled water

put water in a spray bottle and add drops. shake to mix. spray upwards & towards center of room. avoid spraying near eyes. store in a cool dark place.

I also have to go through my pantry and make a shopping list for tomorrow. grocery shopping - I quite enjoy it ! pushing the trolley and choosing items to make my home a welcoming place whether it be cleaning products (green of course) or food to cook up into something quite delish. Lots of special things to buy for the bridal shower as well.

*I think I may even go to the fruit shop and buy some leeks to put into one of my glass jugs.*

What a spring time treat!

Thanks for the spring freshener recipe. I think I'll try it for myself. Here in Florida, I am looking forward to the beautiful winter weather.
