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

you're IT - tagged !

ms*nicole tagged me for this
it is all about 10 SIMPLE PLEASURES ...
Name ten of life's simple pleasures that you like most,
then pick ten people to do the same.
Try to be original and creative
and not to use things that someone else has already used. I have put a slightly different slant on my answers as most times I live in the past..some of my simple pleasures are from times gone by. So, here goes, in no particular order ...

1. years ago, when my children were newly born, I loved nothing more than burying my face into their skin and just smelling them. There is something special about that new born smell.

2. when I was little, I loved to sit on my grandma's lap and dig my fingers into the skin on her neck. It was so floppy and soft - I use to tell her that she was the most beautiful grandma in the world and had the softest skin ever. She was about 80 when I did that.

3. just being in my garden, weeding or pottering just makes my soul sing. When I am in the garden, I can honestly say that I am not on this planet...... I kind of meditate as I garden.

4. my memories - who would I be without them?

5. faeries - as you all know, I believe in faeries - go on say it!!!

6. massage - pampering yourself is so important in today's world.

7. autumn leaves - the colours and the crackle as you walk through them - love it !

8. sitting in front of a fire in the middle of winter, with a cup of warm milk and a good book, tucked up under a favourite vintage blanket - ahh bliss. I feel like I am in Heaven.

9. sitting holding my dear soul mates hand. just being as one with him

10. going to my chook pen and getting a freshly laid egg and cooking it for breakfast.

now I tag 10 people and forgive me if you have already been tagged:

lil ol' berriehead * queen dolly * ms*eagle at the tradpad * leanne at roman holiday * Corey with her tongue in cheek * barb and her green wellies * Patra and her other place * mindy in her peaceful corner & I was going to pick Alison of brocantehome fame, but she has taken a break from blogging *so the other two - well anyone else who wants to

Most of those I can totally relate to and agree with, Robyn. They are the simple pleasures - and aren't they the best kind?

Oh the smells of loved ones... how I can relate to this. When my father passed away three years ago I asked mum to give me his old peanut cushion he used in his cumfy recliner chair. Sure it was sweaty and dirty and goodness knows what else... but it also had his smell on it... Mmmmm I used to inhale his scent every time I thought of him and going to sleep at night. Notice I said "used" to?? Your ansers were heavenly. Hugs xox

I loved reading your list -- so many things I find to be truly rewarding to myself as well. Thank you for tagging me; I really enjoyed stopping to really think about the things that give me the greatest joy for the least amount of searching for it...what a wonderful way to try to come up with a post.

You made a lovely list. It is nice to go back and appreciate the simple things like just sitting on my daddy's lap when I was little. That was our real time to connect.

Take care,

Ms.Robyn thankyou for coming into my blog!Good for you being on "solid ground."( my post of Mar.21/o6)"Chook pen" I thought only Martha has one! Some of my pleasures are yes being with my soul mate of 38 yrs..we have had an ongoing date night on Fri.nights. Ah yes a massage love that! I love watching my cats clean their faces,left side w/ left paw; right side w/ right paw.I love seeing the world through a kittens eyes. The other day she was watching raindrops hit the window pane and was trying to "touch" the drops as they rolled down the outside window! Sitting or tending to my garden a very calming place with all the "faires" sprinkling their magic grow dust.
