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.

The 7th was my husbands birthday. We invited my daughter and family over and we had Pizza and I made a cake. It was also the one year anniversary of my granddaughters death so it was good to spend some time together.
I made a cake with a lot of help from Tristen, he wanted to "help" then to "lick da spoon". It tells us not to eat the batter anymore but that's the best part of making a cake. He then discovered the frosting and had to sample that too. I made cream cheese frosting from scratch and he just loved that.

I would like to have had time to do something fancy but with so much "help" I just did not have the time to do that.
Besides, we had company arrive and so I had to get on with other things.
Wasn't too bad though and tasted yummy and I suppose that's the main thing after all.


I am linking this post to A Delightful Life for her Valentine party.
