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

happy birthday

to daily parcels! yes, one year ago today I started putting those voices in my head, down here, as musings from a vintage addict......thanks to Alison at brocantehome ..... back then, she was looking for 'volunteers' to be part of her website and one of the requirements was that you needed a blog. I had absolutely no idea what a blog was but if I remember rightly - I said I would give it ago and by the look of it, I gave it a very good go, * this is my 557th post - there are 356 days in a year and seeing that I was away a few times - that could make it two posts a day - I am a chatterbox it seems, either that or I don't have a life. But it has been lots of fun - meeting all my journalling friends ( let's face it, this is not blogging, I refuse to call it that) and the swaps. But most especially the support and counselling that we get (for free) off each other. Women are amazing, don't you think.
so as a celebration - I want each of you to go out and buy yourself a little patty/fairy cake today - put a candle on it and sing happy birthday to daily parcels!

'Without wonderful ingredients, the recipe just wouldn't be right!'

You, my dear friend, would be my vanilla essence. The wonderfully rich undertone that completes the recipe. Much love, Nicole xox

For some reason ( I didn't read the archives carefully) I thought your blog was older than one year..Wow! This is a milestone. I know I will feel that way if I reach the one year mark at my blog.
So...a little late...Happy bloggy b-day! I love the name of your blog. It is what drew me in to read the very first time.
Did you eat some cake for me?? Hope so...

Happy Blog birthday/anniversary/whatever, Ms Robyn! Gosh, I didn't know I was 'older' than you, by a week, no less! Your blog is so much more 'professional' than mine - I just stuck to the original template, although I've added a few extras here and there. Look forward to another year of reading your thoughts and opinions on life in general :-)
