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

spreading the Christmas cheer

this afternoon I am having my neighbours in for Christmas cheer * actually afternoon tea served with my Christmas cake * almond & cognac shortbread * maybe some egg-nog * I buy this already made - and heat it gently on the stove, stir in some brandy * pour into a glass & grate some fresh nutmeg on the top ~ chrismas-liscious !!
On my mantle - I have vintage glass dishes with chocolate coins & bells ( lindt of course) * candy canes in glass jugs. I have the spice candles burning * christmas music playing softly in the background & table set - just perfect for these last few days leading up to Christmas

Ken and I have not often been blessed with the kind of neighbours who would come in for pre-Christmas drinks and nibbles. Broken marriages all around us; divorced or separated women with out of control teenagers...Well, not all of them, but sometimes it feels like it! We are going across the road for a BBQ on Friday with one set of neighbours who have always been friendly, and whose kids (now grown up) have never been any trouble. But they have always been busy with their own life, and this is the first time we have been invited over.
There used to be a family next door to them, who were really great - they always had half a dozen families in the area in for either Xmas Eve or New Year's Eve, but they have moved, and since then, I have tried to continue the tradition, but nobody seems to want to get together any more. :-(
