I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

a new tradition at Christmas

taking an idea from *romancing the Ordinary*
I decided to make myself a wassail bowl
* apple cider * apple juice * cinnamon sticks * brown sugar * nutmeg & cloves
- all simmering this very minute on my stove
* smells absolutely delish !
I am going to have a lovely bath * dress in my jammies and watch *Miracle on 34th St*
while I wrap all my Christmas presents * ready to put under the tree
* this year - I am using plain old brown paper (of course)
tied with red ribbon & luggage tags
* ooh that spiced cider smells wonderful !
