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.

my very first giveaway................

This is my first time at this so forgive me if I am not an expert. I am offering this book, just in time to do some Christmas projects. All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment and it would be nice if you would follow me. While you are here you may notice I have two other blogs that you may find interesting. Its not a requirement but I would love it if you would check them out too. I will run this giveaway until next Friday and will choose the winner then from who ever has left comments. Depending on how many people leave comment will depend on how I choose, either by the on line random number thingie or by putting the names in a hat sort of thing. Good Luck. At that time I will need your address in order to mail it to you. 103_0018 I didn't do a very good job of cropping the picture but I think you can see it well enough. I will show a couple of pictures from inside. 103_0023 103_0022 103_0021 In case you wonder why I am giving this book away. Well I belong to a book club and I sent for this book and then found I already had it and so it seemed like the ideal time to have a giveaway.Drawing will be on Friday 23rd Nov
