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.

When winter comes we think of Jack Frost and maybe the Winter Queen. Or is it just my English fantasy? I remember reading fairy stories as a child. It left me with a sense of wonder when I see that first snow. It doesn't last long, but I really think there are not many people who loose that awe of waking up to the first snow. One looks out over a virgin blanket of snow...........now turned to a crystal field of white under the moonlight. It sparks that childish sense of awe again and brings back the child. I would sit in my bedroom window. Chin in hands and with nose against the window. I would trace the frost patterns and stare at the sky. The snow blurring the light from the lamp post at the top of the road, there the houses ended and the fields began. Never sure what I might see. Fairy's sprinkling fairy dust that made the snow silver and gold, little fairy folk who glittered among the snowflakes. Sitting on the branch of trees hiding and keeping watch.
Who were they watching for? The Winter Queen? The Fairy Queen? I don't know I always fell asleep before I caught a glimpse but sometimes I wonder if before my eyes were quite shut I might just see something stir, something coming................
I am sharing this post on The Dedicated House. On Make it pretty Monday
I want to thank Kathryn for hosting the event.
