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.

old pictures............

This is a picture I did a long time ago. An English Robin. Its done on a regular piece of paper with a box of kids water colour paints.


OK so I have no idea what the heck I was doing here. This in my art journal

This one I did in a class, I didn't like the one the instructor did. He painted in a black background. I prefered my own and I actually like this one. I don't usually like things that I do


This is a picture I did of Betsy Lighthouse. A local lighthouse. While I can see a lot I did wrong, I also can say that I like the overall effect. I could probably do it better if I did it again. I may do that someday.


Something a bit different.......this is a mini quilt that I did. Its got tiny buttons of each was fun to do.


This I made for my youngest granddaughter Reina. I had not done sewing for awhile and this was fun to do.


...and a bear to go with it. I may have shown this before when I first started the blog but its so cute I had to show it again

All for now
