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

something old, something blue

I have a special gift for ms*louisa..... my dear Nan - Jean, loved to keep all her gorgeous lace handkerchiefs for 'good' and lucky me, was given them all when she passed away. I treasure them with my heart. I have one special one, which still has the little sticker on it and I am going to give it to ms*louisa tomorrow as the 'something old' * along with a collage card that I made for just this day. I photo copied a picture of my nan when she was a little girl and cut out her head. I also found a picture of a vintage wedding gown which was the PERFECT size for the head! so I made a collage, with romantic words stuck here and there as well as a gorgeous flower right on the waist. Looks delightful. I wrapped this and the hankie up in blue tissue, tied it with a blue vintage ribbon and finished the whole parcel with a vintage flower. something very, very special for tomorrow.

Oh, that is so special, I'm sure she's going to get a little teary when she opens it - I'm teary just thinking about it! The party sounds great too, actually it sounds like a dream to me - I'm a bit of a retro girl myself.

i've been catching up with your blog today, we are on our way home tomorrow. I am glad to hear your checkup was ok.

on the subject of Enid Blyton, I wondered why I hadn't seen them around in the school, now I know, anyway I introduced my son who is 10 to them about a year ago and now he has all the famous five and lots of the others, he absolutely loves them, and for someone who isn't that into reading I was delighted with this...

just to let you know, my hubby got a job offer a couple of days ago and he is hoping for a couple of other offers too and then we will take the one we think suits us best. So we are hoping to be all settled up at home and back here by Christmas! dolly x
