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.

Friends garage sale.........

It's that time of year. Garage sales. My friend Nancy just had one and called me to go over. I did. Here are 3 things I bought. There are many more things but I will save those for another post. I got several Christmas items that I just put away for now. The other things were for the garden. So will probably show those when I sort them on the garden blog.
Well, first of all I got these two lovely little dishes.

I think they are lovely don't you?
The next thing is this pink dish. It's not perfect, it has a small chip on its rim. For that reason I intend to use it as a planter. I think I will put some cactus or succulents in it.

The next thing I will show is a lovely tray. Nancy loves to finish wood items and she does such a lovely job. I was looking for a nice tray just this size. Sometimes its handy to take drinks into the living room, coffee, snacks and so on. So that was actually on my list of things to look out for. Could not have done better than this.

Well, I will have to remember what else I found, but I do believe it was mainly Christmas stuff. What a surprise when I open it all up next year.
