daily musings of a vintage addict * I am totally obsessed with all things vintage * trying to keep up with my past...and sometimes ordinary everyday life

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

vintage inspired sewing

I found some handles for my hessian bag so I finished it last night * in between cooking dinner*... I am quite pleased with it ! It is not the same colour as the one I made in primary school so the next one I make I am going to try to find the same blue hessian... I think I really need to recreate that blue bag with an elephant on it... this one is hot pink however the colour is showing more as a red..instead of wool embroidery I decided to use my feedsack pieces for appliqued flowers
*if you click on the actual photo, it should take you to a larger picture where you can see better detail!*
