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

the kindness of strangers

we all have lurkers on our blogs.... some people just love to come and read quietly...never commenting and thats lovely. A few days ago I mentioned on my blog that I was looking for some vintage bamboo handles to finish my bag off... and I received an email from a lady who said she had been collecting them for a few years and would love to give me some if I would forward my address details..and I did. Then I started to worry that maybe I had given my address to some crackpot... so I put it in the back of my mind... today - I received the said handles plus some gorgeous vintage embroidery patterns from my lurker *tosh* - how lovely.... the world is not such a bad place. Thank you Tosh from the bottom of my heart..and please keep visiting my blog whenever you wish.
I have half finished the 2nd bag and these handles are just the perfect size. My mum had a set for the first bag that were perfect....how lucky am I ? two sets in a week.
