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 am not sure where I saw this idea. It seemed like a quick and easy tasty treat. I found it fiddly and messy. Tristen seemed to enjoy it though. So here goes....... You will need large marshmallows. A bar of chocolate to melt. Candy canes. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or a small sausepan in a pan of water. Snap the handles off of the candycanes and take the wrapper off (that was the worst bit) Crush the handle part of the candy cane Spear the large Marshmallow with the straight part of the candy cane and dip it into the melted chocolate. Dip the chocolate into the crushed candy cane pieces and put in a glass or something to set.............. Three of mine were gone before they set. Still warm............I am about to try one.
