My Photo
Name:
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

life @ ms*robyn's

Monday and the bathrooms are sparkling - I took a leaf from brocantehome & detoxed my drains today as well as scrubbing the bathrooms and stripping the sheets.
then I had a puttery type day - doing a little more on my pinafore apron and deciding what lining to use for my hessian bag. They are both coming along wonderfully, although I am not sure if I have made the apron the right size...guess I can always give it to someone. I finished my christmas stocking for the stocking swap & it is all wrapped ready to go. Soaked a few vintage hankies in borax and lavender for the Christmas card & hanky swap and started to put together a few treasure for the vintage Christmas swap.....of course my floor in the sewing room looks - well not so tidy but it is more of a creative mess.
Time to start organizing my advent wreath as well as my Jesse tree. ms*sophie and I are going to make the decorations for the Jesse tree this year - something that she will be able to keep when she has her own home.

Sounds lovely. Just what I'll be doing today, housework-y things, making cards for friends and family and baking the odd cake ;-)

It is so daunting being your vintage Xmas stocking swap partner! (in a good way of course) I have all parts and pieces obtained and today is assembly day. I promise that it will not be modeled upon that awful tennis shoe stocking.

Sounds like a lovely sort of day. So you wash your vintage hankies in Borax and lavender. I was thinking of washing mine in baby detergent. I have this idea in the back of my head that if I wash them, they will fall apart...yes, really!
