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

ladies in lavender

definately on my wish list !
ladies in lavender * haven't seen it as yet but have heard lots & lots about it * love both Judi Dench & Maggie Smith. I am sure this will be one of those movies that I can watch time and time again..snuggling with hot cocoa. You know what I mean.....

"two spinster sisters, Ursula and Janet (Judi Dench and Maggie Smith), live in an old house by the sea in 1930s Cornwall, England. Their pleasant but uneventful routine of beach walks, reading, sewing, and tea time is interrupted when Andreas, a handsome young Polish violinist (Daniel Bruhl, from GOODBYE, LENIN!) washes ashore, barely alive. The girls nurse him back to health and for the never-married Ursula it's a case of first love far too late in life. She helps him overcome the language barrier, only to possibly lose him to a younger woman"

Okay, your place or mine? Whoever receives it first has to call the other and invite them over! Or we can go over to Peggy's house and watch it? Who wants to come? I'll bring the cheese and baguettes! Should I bring wine too?

I came away from "Ladies" praising Charles Dance who brought the story from a short story to the screen. The insight into the older woman's sexuality and sensuality in Judi Dench's charcter is stunning. Few males have it. And to bring this to the screen in the way it was done demanded great understanding and sensitivity. The Grand Dames are wonderful - and so is the Cornish garden. You will love it.

Oh that sounds fab and like a movie I'd love to watch as well! I'll look out for that DVD! Thanks for the tip Robyn! Or we all meet up at Corey's place ;-), it's only ca. 1.600 km away from here, but still much closer than Australia though.

These two grande dames of the theatre, bring this gentle story to life.
I saw it at our local outdoor cinema under the stars and was truly enchanted.
