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

early morning musings

not sure where my blog is going now - at first when I started to blog, I was inspired by Alison @ brocantehome and wrote about my daily housekeeping - then there was the wedding and memories from my childhood. I was happy to just write away - to get all those voices out of my head and in writing. But there is only so much I can write about housekeeping, the wedding is over, so now what? I really don't know. The blogging community really seems to have quietened down and I am not sure if anyone really reads this now. I am not posting this to see how many comments I get - but really wonder how everyone else surfs blogs and if they comment when they visit. I try to make a comment on blogs that I visit so that the person knows that I have visited. Much like a calling card from the victorian times......
I really do love to blog but maybe I need to take a step into the real world? oh who knows - but I will say this - I have met lots of lovely ladies through this blog & I am very grateful for that

Ah Ms. Robyn, I might not always leave a comment, but I read your blog every day. I love to "peek" into your life and see how things are going. While you may think your posts are mundane or whatever, I find them sweet and entertaining. I am more of a voyeur...I read blogs but rarely post on my own. I spend so much time on the computer doing my ebay auctions (nancourt, shameless plug!) :-), that I just enjoy reading instead of typing. If you need a break, please do not leave us for good. You are sort of my "virtual vacation" each day. Take care of yourself...I think you have just maxxed out on "stuff" over the last few weeks. Take a rest and know we all love you. Nancy

I have been flat out with so much going on at the moment and have had to take time out from my blogging...At times I have felt guilty, and realised that this was totally crazy!
I'm sure that I'll get back to posting bits and pieces when I get the chance, but just not right now.
So my dear...just see how you feel day by day and do what is right for you. There are heaps of us who thoroughly enjoy visiting your blog and each of us would understand if you need to take a break.
HUGS to you... K xx

Dear Ms Robyn - I love to read your blog and others, but don't always leave a comment. Take a break for a while you have had such a lot on. Do keep blogging though - even if the posts are a little thin for a while. Your blog is a breath of fresh air. Inspiration will strike again, when you least expect it.

Blogger Alice said...

Dear Robyn - I agree with Calidore. You are probably suffering from burnout at the moment and one day you will wake up and say to yourself "I want to post that on my blog" and you will be up and away again.

Love always.

Hey, I read your blog every day. I try not to miss it as it's inspired me in lots of ways

Ah Robyn, I've just had that kind of feeling concerning my german blog on a german gardening site that I keep updating for 6 month now and I wasn't sure if people are still interested in my blog, but after posting about my feelings I even got people telling me that they can't go to bed without visiting my blog and seeing what's new and others told me that I've inspired them to become more creative and I just loved the general feedback that I've got.
I agree with everything which was said so far. You do not have to post something every day, just post if you feel like it, I will keep checking, I love your blog and your swaps! I'm looking forward to read about the way you decorate and celebrate christmas for example.

And I think you are right, it is nice to leave a comment when visiting a blog, so that the blogger knows if the readers are still interested in what he/she has to say etc..

You have also inspired me to become more creative through the lovely swaps you organise.

ms*robyn, Your blogg is one I visit every day, I just love to read about your life and your thoughts.

Robyn, I reckon all of us who blog reguarly go through patches like this: I honestly think it is because we get sick of our own voices and worry that other people feel the same. The thing to remember is that you are doing this for you: if you have got nothing to say, don't. I have found that when I fill in the empty spaces in my head, people don't comment, but when I write from the heart, they do.
Blogging shouldn't be an obligation but an expression of who you are and what thoughts you feel like sharing with the world. Thats all...

dearest Ms*R, I have blogged for about 4 years now (dillydolly is my new blog) and I started the other blog really by accident because I wanted a diary but somehow didn't commit to a paper and pen one. When I went through a tough time I found it a huge help but there have been times when I have had a month off thinking I would never go back to it and then did go back. The only thing I can say is that I think sometimes you just gotta blog for *you*, don't think about who is reading it and what they think, use it as an outlet...and from my point of view I always prefer the boring, mundane entries about real life for real women...

love ya! dollyx

me too, I visit every day. Please keep blogging about your vintage life. You always seem to have something warm and loving to say or to show and I really enjoy and appreciate it.

Me, too, Ms*Robyn! I read your blog often but don't always feel I have something to say. I am another one who enjoys reading about your everyday activities and housekeeping.

Hi Ms*Robyn....here are a few of my thoughts...and only mine..but after my daughter got married...I literally grieved for her. She was in another state and really 'gone'. That was a terribly hard year for me. So...just maybe after all the excitement of the wedding...there will be a let-down for a while. I would miss your blog! if you take a break. (and your delightful pictures and how you change the color and size of your lettering in the posts.) (things I don't know how to do yet = )). Well, just all the things that make your blog special because you are special. You inspire us to think of housekeeping as a necessary part of the day...that can be made very rewarding. Like lighting a candle when the work is done and basking in the quiet contentment of having created 'home, sweet home' once again. How are your collages coming in? How many have you received yet? Aren't they fun. I would never have believed how much I enjoy collaging. Can't wait to try it in my scrapbook along with family photos. Take care, ms*robyn...you are a very special part of our blogging family....When I visit blogs I try to go down the list in my sidebar every couple of days...and yes, I always leave a comment. A comment lets the other person know for sure, you've been there and came over on pupose! And, its a blessing. I will often 'pop' over to the commenter's blog when they leave me a comment too. My heart is blessed even more by comments than collages! Blessings to you Robyn!

The blogging community quietened down?? Not sure if anyone reads your blog??? I never heard such nonsense, Ms Robyn! As you have seen now, you have many people like me who find your blog fascinating, inspirational, amusing, educational and familiar. You don't have to post every day - I don't - only when I have something I want to vent about, or something that I think will interest my Blogging friends. As for you taking a step into the real world - this IS the real world now, girl! The world of the New Millenium is largely cyberspace, and I am still amazed to find myself part of it.

Don't go, don't go! I am one of those people who has a sloooww computer and only gets to check up on some blogs weekly. And although I agree it's nice to leave a comment on every blog you visit, sometimes it takes so long to load a page and leave a comment, that you just CAN'T comment everywhere.

But do know that you have many readers who enjoy catching up with your blog!

I like to read what you're up to! Above all don't force anything, if it doesn't feel right, step back and take a break. I hope you don't sign off for good though!! xxoo.

I would miss your blog were it not here to read. I love your housekeeping talk but also your memories and musings! As long as you have time to do it, I would love to carry on reading it.

Now I know almost nothing about clever computer things, but wouldnt it be lovely if we could each design our own calling card, so we could leave them to let each other know we have been, on those days when your brain is just too sleepy to do a comment...?
