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.

White dresses are of course mainly thought of in terms of a wedding. Not always though. In Victorian times they were summer wear. Sometimes evening wear these days and so I will include off white and silver and lovely lace in my post. Beauty.......just for the sake of beauty. I suppose one would have to be very slim to wear some of these masterpieces. I love the silver with the white......again, one would have to be tall and slim to wear this but isn't it a beauty? This is a wedding dress but oh my.............what a beauty. Don't you agree? ' I remember as a child Ballroom dancing was the big thing. My parents said when I was 18 I could have a ball gown. Well, by the time I was 18 that was the last thing I wanted in the mod world of the 1960s........but still....some of these dresses are divine. Maybe that is why I love glitter now, watching those ladies with the deep layers of sparkling tulle gem encrusted creations. So many years ago now but the fantasy remains.
