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

through the blogging glass -

Hello Dolly !

I am sure most of you know Dolly. Oh she is a favourite of mine - she is down to earth and prattles on in a most entertaining way.... has me laughing out loud sometimes *just this week she has been talking about finding just one thing that you love about yourself, which got me thinking.

I wish I were less sensitive. I wear my heart on my sleeve * always have and probably always will & I get hurt, dreadfully sometimes * I put my all into friendships and I guess I do expect others to do the same and of course when they don't * I feel a lump in my heart. My grandma always said that I had to toughen up...... but ya know, if I did that, then I wouldn't be me. Joe says that I should just take people as they are and not expect everyone to be like me.... but honestly, I can't change myself.
I want people to like me .....but don't we all want that?

I can't imagine anyone NOT liking you, Robyn! I find that people who know me tend to love me in spite of my caustic tongue and occasional bad temper, or alternatively hate me with a passion!!! (ex husbands in particular...)

I csn understand wholeheartedly what you mean, i'm not really a social person, much less a social butterfly - i think i'm a bit of a loner. I don't think people ever really 'toughen up', they just learn to act better.

Take care of yourself sweetie

I think its a wonderful world when so many of us with different personalities can come together via internet and become such good friends! Some of us are shy, some are outgoing, some funny, some comforting, whatever we are it seems to work for us ( in my opinion) because we seemed to have bonded rather well. BTW Robyn, I like you just the way you are...

Robyn and Dolly, You both are great! I too am very tender, but have learned to avoid some people and situations for the sake of sad falling tears.

Robyn, you are a very endearing and sweet person. We need more people like you in the world. I'm afraid people can read my face like a book. I am overly sensitive and have a difficult time playing my cello at church with all the folks eyes on me. It just makes my insides shake. Not kidding here, I'm not very outgoing, but can be at times. Blogging is fabulous because it does let us have friends of all personality types, and yet I think compatible people find each other and gravitate back, cause, well....we're kindred spirits...after all!

oh yes! I had never thought of that before - how the internet not only allows you to make friends with people of the same interest ie all vintage dollies but also personalities that maybe in 'real life' you wouldn't quite hit it off with so easily.

dang I love this piece of plastic in the corner, I think I may have to give it a naming cermony and include it in the family! *wink*
