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

my vintage bookshelf

this book has been on my book shelf for years - the English Country cottage - love it ! I guess this is another book I would have to take with me if for some remote chance I had to go to the moon or travel to outer mongolia stranded on a barge in the middle of a river. The illustrations are just what I think my great-nan's house would have been like in East Stonehouse - Devon in the UK. some of the cottages I would die for ! cottages with names like Sparrow Cottage and Anglers cottage and Monks Retreat ............. just make my soul sing!

Robyn, I have been reading your blog for a while now and thought it was about time I said hello.
I simply love this book illustration, so angelic, a beautiful picture of innocence.
Like you, I am fascinated with quaint names for houses. Before we moved to Wales, we lived in a small, pretty English village, the cottage opposite was named 'Mole End'. Isn't that just lovely! Marion

Looks like a lovely book. Don't those names conjure up such wonderfully cozy images? I love all things English!
