My Photo
Location: Culburra Beach , NSW, Australia

I live in Australia, my ancestry is in Cornwall. a Celt. a hedgewitch of sorts. I am an Earth Healer. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. A gypsy. An eccentric. a mystic. I am a searcher, a seeker, a pilgrim on Earth. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. I love to dream, to walk and to wonder

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

I love Fridays. They are usually the day that I get to putter. I am going to make a date loaf from the recipe that was my first mother in laws favourite - handed down to her from Nana Hawkins
*nan silks date loaf* - then I am going to do a little puttering around outside - I have a plan for my verandah. I have an old lounge out there and I want to cover it over with a vintage chenille and a few cushions. Add -some orchid plants, an old birdcage, a few vintage rose prints and a mirror.

now that sounds like you are making the perfect place to spend a fall afternoon with a nice cup of tea. I am trying to decide how I want to decorate my back deck for the spring and summer.

I cannot wait to see some pictures of your new beautiful verandah. The date loaf sounds absolutely delicious. I bought two date loaf tins at a thrift shop a few weeks ago as my pop loves dates, and they cost be one dollar each! Now, thanks to you, I can make him some scrummy date loaf. Have a delightfully pleasant weekend (is that proper english?) Hugs and snugs.

Sounds so cozy. I invision my enclosed porch furniture covered in a fabric with narrow blue and white stripes....a light slate blue. I hope to find some and do that job one of these days.
Thanks so much for the recipe. Date loaf is one of my favourite things. I loved reading your recipes and saving them to try. Great idea to share them and a lovely way to remember your grandma.

I have always called puttering ~ pottering ~ I find it weird when it is with the 'u' lol! your verandah sounds so divine, just what I want from my new australian lifestyle, - we have two out front verandahs and I really really must make more use of the, going out here with some vintage cushions or Amy butler cushions, kicking back and taking a rest..yes this is the plan xx
