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

March 15, 2006


after this post - you will all definately think I have lost it. But, you see, it is a full moon here tonight and I am going to a women's get together. Women only, because our cycles follow the moon. Not women who hate men - most of us are married with children. Where we will have little rituals of burning candles and incense and singing and dancing -then a cup of herbal tea & chocolate. Giving thanks for all the abundance in our life. out in the bush in the night. My task is the water element. For this, I am taking one of my vintage pressed glass bowls, a gardenia and a floating candle. I have to give thanks for the water of the earth. I guess you could think it is paganistic but its not. Just a group of women getting together to honour their femininity & to give thanks for all we have. We have to go dressed up and I am wearing a gorgeous vintage nightie with my hair tied up in pink ribbon. Lots of beads and baubles. It will be tons of fun - like little girls playing dress ups - getting in touch with our authentic selves.

We have full moon here too at the moment and very clear nights so that I wake up several times at night wondering if someone has switched the light on in my room and then seeing the big moon shining directly on my bed. I should probably do a moon ritual too tonight.

It sounds like a lovely celebration of nature and life...it's wonderful to be able to connect with other women this way. I'm with Garden Girl, wish I could be there too...such fun :)

Sounds wonderfully sane to me. Have you read Circle of Five by Dolores Stewart Riccio? Your outings remind me of this book's characters doing some of the same. You might enjoy, it's a quick read. (Looks like it may have some sequels now!)

It sounds like it would be fun... I think that we, as women sidestep these phases of our life - forgetting (or choosing not to know) that these makes us who we are... Whilst I am not a devotee of wicca I can appreciate its significance... I can understand that we do need to pay homage to the earth and its wonderful (almost) neverending supply and that the strong male and female aspects come into play... Why for heavenss sake do we try and deny our feminine sides... Sorry I have wandered off track there - as your ritual reminded me of some aspects of the wicca lore...
