Inspiration!

First and foremost apologies to the lovely people who sent me messages and I didn't receive notification until now!!! I thought there might have been a problem, all fixed and I have replied back to all messages. I really enjoy reading your comments and interacting with you, thank you again for all your support and reading my blog💗 

It's funny you know, I just write about the things I like and what inspires me, things that I thought wouldn't really interest anyone else, but it does and that's a nice feeling! I'm just a Goth who appreciates many creative passions and one being Old Lady fashion. I think there's so much pressure on people these days when it comes to how one should look! To me I've never really cared for anyone's opinion and have always worn whatever I've wanted. 

I don'y really go out to many clubs  anymore, but I used to live in them right through my twenties, these days you'll hear all the great Goth tunes coming from our cottage in the country and not only Goth but we listen to a huge variation of music, I love metal and will forever but I also adore classical music. I much rather live a peaceful life now, drinking tea, watching old movies, reading and going out on adventures. I still go to gigs when good bands come to Australia but my way of a partying these days is entertaining guests with cake and tea hahaha and on special nights we drink my beloved Absinthe, my greatest old friend...

I really do live a full Granpire life V--V 

Now what this post is about is Myrtle Snow, I think it's time to watch American Horror Story Coven again, this is the only one I liked and can relate to. Myrtle is the perfect Old Lady inspiration, I just die over her wardrobe and insect brooches, adore, adore, adore!!!














She really needed this brooch though ^V^

Vampire Outings!

On the 2 days of hairdressing I do a week I get to visit the most amazing places! I think returning after a year off has been really great for me, especially now as a travelling hair artist. I really should of done this earlier instead of locking myself away in a salon 5 days a week and working 60 hour weeks, it was far too much for me and I got totally burned out! Studying Floristry in that year off was fantastic for me, working with nature and putting myself in a different environment was something I very much needed. I didn't think i'd return to hair, but after time I really started to miss my craft; I've done since the age of 14! What helped was all my beautiful clients hoping i'd be back one day, i'm very lucky to have such a wonderful clientele who has supported my art over so many years, thank you and I am very grateful💓 

I haven't posted much floral stuff lately as life has been very busy for me in many ways, but soon i'll have some new handmade flowers. I plan to do some markets eventually which will be really fun. Combining my 2 arts together has given me a lot of happiness and direction in life, I like to keep busy and I read tarot professionally also, that to me completes my old soul. 

It's finally the Autumn Equinox here in the Southern Hemisphere with a waning moon in Sagittarius which is my moon sign and plays a lot of power in my personality. I'ts grey outside and I have old movies playing in the background while I write this post, I enjoy blogging, helps me show you parts of my life and adventures I get up to. I often get asked If i'll ever YouTube and my answer is possibly, but i'd only do Vlog videos and take you on our outings, i'd much prefer that than sitting in front of the camera talking about myself, too much pressure and nothing is left mysterious, and I love mystery! The fact that I get mentally bored so quickly doesn't help. I like spending time on my own and doing the things that I love. Well you never know I may put something up one day 😊

This first picture you see I love so much, this mannequin belongs to one of my clients/friends and I just had to have a photo. 

The rest of the photos were taken at Chapel Street Bazaar, an antique store I love and have been visiting for quite a number of years now, this part of Chapel Street once was so wonderful and alternative, especially when Charlie Weaver and Mortishas was around, it now has a different energy to it, interesting to see whats happening on this street these days but the Windsor end was where it was at years ago. After some antiquing and a lovely meal followed by doughnuts I was ready to go home back into the country haha!

Old Buildings And Classical Music!

There's something about classical music that sets my soul on fire! Whether I'm driving or in my home listening to this magnificent music; usually this occurs on the darkest of days, with gloomy grey skies, while I walk through my home like a ghostly lady, tea in hand with Dragons Blood burning creating a patterned smoke, all I'm missing is that organ I just haven't found yet! 



My right palm says Blood and the left Witch, very special tattoos including the cute blood bites on my wrist V--V 


While visiting Melbourne I always must take a selfie in the best bathroom :) 


I love this dress, the mood was so fitting for the day.


I feel happiest when I dress like this, when I wear the spooky cute stuff it's more of my casual Goth look, but this is my soul! 


Lucy-Furr my Wolf Spider ring by Alchemy Gothic, a very old ring, for an old Vampire lady like me.


Melbourne's Beauty! These buildings are to be cherished. 



Bach, thank you! Cd resting on my granny bag, still on the search for that perfect Gramophone so I can play my records.



Gothic beauty!





The world I live in... dark but with a rainbow on the other side.

Public Holidays!

On Monday we went and did a little antiquing with friends followed by the Ballarat Begonia Festival. It was a lovely day with great company. I love my old town that's full of treasure. To follow some pictures in colour and black and white because I like it that way. I came home with some classical Cd's, a granny teacup and 2 books, one on old crocheting table cloths and the other antique clothing🎔
