This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

     Little stone ladybugs and mushrooms

Part of the fun is scouring the local beaches to find pretty stones. Then thinking what can be made with them. I like to find heart shape stones and I have a small collection of odd stones suitable for making pendents.

On our Michigan beaches driftwood and stones, especially Petoskey Stones make wonderful craft supplies.


This little turtle is made from a very small Petoskey Stone. The Ladybug is just a small stone as are the mushrooms
