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.

New pictures...........

These are done on drawing paper and so they crinkle up. Not a great way to show work. Still I will show a few......A New Forest pony.

This came from a picture I saw, I liked the way the hair covered the girls face. I did it from memory and have forgotten where I saw it so I hope its not too much the same as the original

the rose is just another loose attempt done without a drawing first. Pencil added after.

Sometimes even the most simple drawing might make a note card?????

The flowers actually looked a lot better on the paper. Taking a picture never gives a good image, it highlights the ink too much.

This on is also a very simple depth or anything like that.....just look so much better in the book but that's OK. This is just to record some of what I am doing. I am on Book 5 now, its fun looking back through. Time to begin on original stuff.
I still see no point in doing paintings because I have nowhere to put them. I may do some note cards though.


  1. More beautiful work from you :) The rose is just lovely and I really like the horse.

    Hugs to you!

  2. I love them all - they would make wonderful cards - or in small frames.

  3. I love the girl on the beach! Her hair flying in the wind is excellent ;o) Hugs ;o)


Please leave a comment I love to hear from you
