My Photo
Name:
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

words to ponder

some people see an old coffee pot, ewer or pail, but a collector sees much more: an artifact of domestic archaeology, a key to rooms locked in the past, a piece of a life story - a treasure

Lovely true quote! That's exactly how I feel too when I stumble across a great old find.

Oh this is sooooo true! I have a pair of special glasses that magically appear when I walk into an antique shop or even just the local op shop. I see beautiful things everywhere!
