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.

More lovely dresses.........

I can't help it but I have been looking at the wonderful dresses that are out there. They are romantic fantasy clothing. I can't imagine getting to wear them but then people who can afford them probably go places that they can indulge. I dont know what the first dress is designed for, I have a feeling its a wedding because of the roses. She is holding them........I was just looking at the bead work on the dress and how beautiful it was

The women are so beautiful with their dusky skin and huge eyes. They know how to show it off too.

If I were young again and in good shape, I used to have a decent figure.........then what fun to try these on. I do not envy those who have the places to wear them because that's not and never would be me.....but I do love clothes and I probably would buy them just to look at (smile)


  1. wow, I love every single one! what beauty in clothing and how beautiful one must feel in them! sigh.....I must get to making my own versions of this kind of beauty I can wear, even to my own Fairy Tea Parties....
    thanks for this, they were all beautiful !!! lady

  2. All of the amazing colors, patterns, fabrics and different styles are beautiful. Very inspiring in an artistic way. I suppose one would have to put the fuller, fluffier dresses on after arrival at the destination. It would be difficult to travel while wearing them, even in a limo. They sure are a feast for the eyes, though. The fluffy sea foam color gown may have been my favorite.

  3. Love them!! Love them all!! I love fashion too! Great post! thanks Janice o)

  4. Gorgeous frocks. (Are fancy dresses like these 'frocks'?) I used to know a woman who made a living hand-sewing beads onto dresses.
