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

daily parcels

this is the post that I was going to post today:

ok , a short time away - reflecting, meditating & soul searching has made me realize I must be true to myself, true to who I am and what I believe and I am very sorry if some of my readers don't agree, but the world is a big melting pot - I believe in what I do because that is who I am - my grandparents were part of the spiritualist church - I am on a journey and I have no idea where I am going but I don't try to sway people to my beliefs, because my beliefs are my own. I don't try to convert and now I guess I have broken one of my pa's golden rules - don't discuss religion.
I am still a vintage girl, just like my profile says - always have been and always will be but I guess I am a vintage girl with a twist.
I use crystals sometimes - and they work. I use herbal medicine (very vintage, I think - look at mediaeval times) and I use prayer, angels and whatever works for me at the time. If I think I need help from a certain saint, well I call them in too. I call them my healing modalities. And I believe that if something natural works, why not use it before resorting to chemicals or radical measures? God has put everything on this earth for us to use - even St. Hildegard used things from nature - rocks, stones and plants.

The Lord hath created medicines out of the earth; and he that is wise will not abhor them. ~Ecclesiasticus 38:4

then I read this:
and realised that I am as guilty as the next person for judging others for what they believe. like I said a melting pot.

so with all that said - I am back and I am still the same ms*robyn that I was last week. posting about my life, my beliefs, some vintage tips and tales and hopefully making friends along the way. I have zipped my lip on religion and will follow my pa's advice from now on.

Ms Robyn I believe exactly as you do,I have never been a conventional religious person,if there is such a thing! but these past few years I have been on some sort of spiritual journey and I have been amazed,dont make apologies,its a big old world and you and I both know there is more to it than we see here on earth! I too use crystals,Angel cards and ask my spirit guides for help,It is all part of our journey...anybody can open themselves up to it.I am attending a psychic development course later in the month,will let you know how I get on!

ms*R, as you know I was raised a Catholic and although there are a lot of things I disagree with in the running of the Catholic church, I still believe religion gives many people many things..and that is why we need many different types..and that is where the problems start

I have never in the blogging world explored spirituality but I guess now's the time to say I see auras and spirits and can feel things about people...at one time, like many others, I actually thought I was mad, but now I accept...I have read that the spiritual side of life often comes to the fore after a major trauma, and although always there when I look back that is certainly what happened to me, your getting through the cancer treatment has made you much more open....hope I don't sound like some crazy old mama!!!!!

keep up the blog, it gets more interesting by the day, oh and do you really give a flying **** about what anyone else says?????

I believe...... That at the end of the day.... we only have ourselves to answer to. Which ever path you have chosen to take.... it was your choice. If your choice turned out to be clouded.... then it is your own guilt or conscience that you answer to... not others. Whether you have a God or not.... you will still be judged by yourself.

My very wise Mother always says....'Unless you have walked in my shoes, do not judge me'

All I can say here is that it is your blog and it is up to you what you post. You and I have different beliefs which is ok but I do need to add that I zip my lips too alot of the time at my own blog for fear of backlash from those who don't understand Christians. I think criticism and judgement go both ways.

You are a KIND soul God knows you love him! & to all of you who have the nerve to question someone elses love of God or the way they pray as being "right" or wrong you've got a LOT to learn* wars are started over that exact thing....btw writing scripture all over your blogs and preaching it to those you "think" are LOST is not going to get you into heaven anymore then the next person...it's whats in your heart* and God knows the truth so Get a Grip! & leave ms robyn alone!
