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

December 31, 2005

this last day of 2005

has dawned hot * but I guess you already knew that* and I am not making any New Years resolutions as I tend to forget them quite quickly. But as you know I have decided to make my life in 2006 *simple & selfish* I am going to try to follow the *simply abundant* path as much as I can - Not sure where I will be going or end up ......but I do hope at the end of 2006 * I can look back and find that my life has indeed become what I had hoped for :~ *simple*

so tonight we go to a friend's home for dinner - he puts on a lovely sit down 3 course dinner with dessert being served at around 11pm. Then we chat and wait til 12am January 1st & he has a dark haired man (who is known as the first footer), knock at his front door bearing gifts of coal & whiskey * this being an old Scottish custom supposedly to bring good luck.

"Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?
Should auld
acquaintance be forgot and auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear, for
auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o kindness yet, for auld lang syne."

and with that my friends I hope you have a wonderful New years Eve !

Oh, that sounds like such fun! What a marvellous way to see in the New Year. I'll be spending new years eve at Ben's oma and opa's 60th wedding anniversary - how sweet!

It is hot, unbearably hot - it hasn't reached the 40's yet in sunny brisbane but the humidity is unbearable. I can hardly move for the film of sweat that constantly covers me from head to toe. Ick - I wish I was going on a cruise. Lovely ocean breezes and days lazing away at the side of the pool. Sounds divine.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow! You'll see me in the mail very soon! =)
