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

the not so ugly duckling

warning proud mum here ! ms*sophie - my baby. sweet 16. yesterday, she finally had her braces removed *after many years of dental work and many hard earned dollars spent on her million dollar mouth so that her orthodontist could afford his luxury holiday and car * I swear, I could hear that cash register chinking every time I walked through that door - anyhow here she is - all that time was worth it. And today, she starts year 11 - her first year of senior high school. Best of luck, sweetie * remember follow your dreams, they are the inspiration for your life * mum xoxo

What a lovely smile! I too had braces when I was younger, they were on for three years. They were a pain at the time but now I'm glad I got them done.

Oh how lovely she is! Good luck Miss Sophie... My father's wise words that are carried from the heaven's to anyone who will listen... 'You can do ANYTHING you want to do, you just have to WANT IT enough!' These words have helped me and I hope they help Miss Sophie too.
