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

Trift to Fantasy

This book called "Thrift to Fantasy" was under the tree for me at Christmas time. What a delight ! Pictures & pictures of vintage sewing items from the 1930's, '40's &'50's.
Great reading !
and a must for anyone who is interested in vintage linen & textile crafts

Okay that seriously looks and sounds pretty scrumptious. Lucky you! I think I might have to treat myself :)

thanks for the info about the flowering tree. William thinks you are right. He thinks thats what he planted many years ago LOL. I haven't seen any of them around the mountains where I grew up and lived.

I love the cover! Is it a toaster cover? What a wonderful gift. I love delving into a book and losing myself for a little while. What is more relaxing to the mind?

Thank you for posting the picture and write-up about this book - it is on my Must Have list now! It looks like a New Zealand version of a book that came out here for the Bicentennial Year - The Gentle Arts. That is along the same lines, i.e. craft work done in Australia by past generations of women.
