My Photo
Name:
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 27


an early spring clean today
*just one room and that is ms*sophies
~ she is home for spring holidays
and what better time for mum & daughter quality time together
cleaning out THAT wardrobe !!
strip the bed * vacuum the mattress and spray with lavender water
leave to dry while I tackle the rest of her room
clean windows inside & out
sort through winter clothes
to be washed, stored for summer
or given to St.Vinnies
then open those wardrobe doors
have a hissy fit
start tossing while muttering under my breath
ms*sophie will head for the hills
and a few hours later, I will emerge
* triumphant!!
finished spring cleaning her room
for yet another year
Then I can make the bed
and putter around her room
* maybe light a few little candles
and a spring posy to make it special
....ahh teenage daughters
- ya gotta love 'em

I sure miss helping my daughters clean and rearrange their rooms... they grow up much too fast.

I loved this post ~ brought a giggle to my lips! I just love the visuals.
It also reminded me of what my Mum must have felt like when she had to face my bedroom (eekkk!)
