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.

Fish Floats and Witch Balls.............
Antique fish floats are among some of the things I collect. I love glass and especially these pretty glass balls. They are sturdy and unique in their shape. What it is that attracts me I can't explain but they have character they have survived the ocean and drifted back to shore to be collected and sold. Some have their strings still on them, but I prefer them without. I have found several colours but the green are probably the prettiest, they are the colour of the ocean. I can not recall where I found the picture above or I would give credit to the owner. I like the idea of keeping them out for Christmas decorations with candles. How pretty they are.
Here is a mixture of fish floats and other pretty glass balls. I used to have them all over the place but gathered them up last Christmas and just kept them that way.
These are mainly fish floats and the small ones are sitting in a piece of glass that Danielle brought back from Venice
My biggest fish float on top of a cupboard.
I love this one it has the bubbles in the glass and is thick glass worn by the sea.
This one is thinner you can see that it may not be authentic.
