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.

The woods are full of fairies!
The trees are alive:
The river overflows with them.
See how they dip and dive!
What funny little fellows!
What dainty little dears!
They dance and leap, and prance and peep,
And utter fairy cheers!

She may not have wings but they are there, she may not look like a fairy but she is. This one too.........

Believe in the Fairies
Who make dreams come true.
Believe in the wonder,
The stars and the moon.
Believe in the magic,
From Fairies above.
They dance on the flowers,
And sing songs of love.
And if you just believe,
And always stay true,
The Fairies will be there,
To watch over you!

In her golden dress with silver wings she enchants the birds and flowers

And as the seasons come and go,
here's something you might like to know.
There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air,
playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day.
So listen, touch, and look around - in the air and on the ground.
And if you watch all nature's things, you might just see a fairy's wing.

Walk in the woods quietly, you never know what you may see. Keep your mind and eyes open, you may catch them unawares

If you have a special garden,
Where flowers and herbs abound.
Then take a pinch of fairy dust,
And sprinkle it around.
The fairies will take notice,
And at the end of day.
They’ll tiptoe out upon the grass,
And dance the night away.
~ Carla J. Nelson

Fairies come in all shapes and sizes and do many magical things
Fairies go where faries go and no one can tell them nay

There are fairies in your garden,
And they’re flying everywhere
Over trees and under leaves
And spinning in the air.
There are fairies in your garden,
And it’s plain for all to see
So look into you’re garden now
And you’ll see some just like me!

~ Where you believe there is magic ... you will find it! ~
