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
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

in the mail box @ Christmas time



ooh today I received my cake from Gina at Patra's place & my first vintage hankie from Mimi in the UK ! Gina and I decided to swap a piece of our christmas cake and she sent hers in a sweet tin along with some other goodies..one of which was a gorgeous hand made cross stitch with strawberries. I am going to put my jam jar on it on the table at Christmas time. Thankyou ever so much Gina !
and I went off to the post office looking like Santa today - all laden up with parcels *brown paper packages of course* I sent my seasonal gift * my mama whiskas secret santa gift * my vintage swap gift * and my cake to Gina - so keep your eyes on the mail box - I also sent two more hankie cards * still have 3 to do, which I hope to get to, tonight.
I also have to say thankyou to Amy from retrospective - she sent me a lovely handmade card with a lavender sachet a week ago and I was going to wait & thank everyone for the cards at once but that is probably not the right thing to do - so thankyou Amy ! The lavender sachet is in my drawer right now. love it !!
