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

a peek into my Christmas home

our advent wreath with the first candle alight
it is nothing spectacular or tizzy - just plain and simple
it helps bring the mood of anticipation and of calm waiting
*the first candle is called the Prophet's candle*

It looks like real fir!
I find it so amazing that you have the same rituals in the hot australian summer that we have here in the cold german winter. That makes the world seem so small!

Simple is what warms the heart and stays in our memory as the special part of Christmas.

I spent two great Christmas's 'down under' in the late seventies. And here in Texas, where mild winters are the norm, we Christmas shop in shorts.
