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.

I love Violets............
When I go to garage sales or even thrift shops I buy pretty things when I see them. I have collected a lot of cups and saucers among other things. I love Violets and so some of them are in a Violet theme. I am trying for a complete set of China tea service in the pattern. Not matching but with Violets on them.
I know why I like Violets, its all about childhood memories. The good times my friend Sylvia and I spent hunting down the first Violets in Springtime. The scent alone is enough to make it one of my very favourite flowers. I do have a sugar and creamer and some pretty cups and saucers.
And a teapot
I need some plates now and maybe some serving plates? I do have one plate that I really like
The cup and saucer that match are also my favourites. I would really love a complete set of them.
I think I only have three plates so far...........but it gives me something to look for.
I am linking this post up with "A Delightsome Life"
Linking up for Tea Time Tuesday
