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 was just commenting on a blog that had a caption that said "I would rather have flowers on my table than diamonds on my neck" ..........Not me. I love diamonds. Not for their worth, I wish they were worthless so that I could wear them on silver strands in my hair or sew them into fabric to wear. They are so pure, so lovely. A rainbow captured in a drop of dew frozen for all time. diamonds Pure as a snowflake and as clear as a cloudless sky. It reflects everything around it in a prism of rainbow colours. 1254128061B95cmE Diamonds make lovely jewelry and it would not matter if they cost one dollar or a million bucks they would still be the perfect gem. I never liked them really until I saw the crown jewels in the Tower of London. Then I saw it...........and wow. I was in love. The Cullinan diamond set in the scepter of England. Image1-CullinanI The Cullinan diamond is the largest rough gem-quality diamond ever found, at 3,105 cts. The diamond was presented to Great Britain’s King Edward VII who entrusted the cutting of the gem to the Asscher brothers. In 1908, Joseph Asscher cut the stone into 9 large stones and 42 small ones. Flowers will fade and die but ..... raindrops Diamonds are forever.............
