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

ms*louisa's wedding ~ September 2

tomorrow is the kitchen tea or bridal shower... it is being held at my home, so I have been madly getting it all into order...about 20 ladies are coming for lunch and, as ms*louisa is a retro girl - we have decided to give her a 60's luncheon. To start with- we are having 'savouries' - cocktail onions & cheese on toothpicks stuck into oranges and cream cheese & cocktail onions on jatz. starter is prawn cocktail. Main course will be meatballs in a creamy mushroom sauce as well as chicken vol au vents. Waldorf salad on the side. Then for 'sweets' we are having chocolate slice, date loaf and pineapple boats. Washed down with sparkling wine and ice tea. All these recipes are authentic 60's recipes taken from a book that I have...absolutely horrid but lots of fun. All home made of course. a few games to pass away the time and some lovely presents.
For the past week, I have been scouring the op shops for 60's plate and other decorating things...have come up with quite a stash. The tablecloth is red with white checks and big white daisies scattered all over. It should be lots of fun..and I will most definately post some pics.

Wow I love the 60's food idea. The whole menu actually sounds really yummy! I'm sure the shower will be so fun with that theme and ms Louisa will have lots of great memories.

Have you got tummy aches yet? I remember when I was a teenager eating all that stuff at parties, I would feel uuuuurrrk for days after!! Not because of the food itself - but because I had stuffed myself - lol!
