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

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 !
