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.

Sketch pad again........
Lady Bug.............well, it's a name. Don't know how I came up with this but there you are......The next is an Owl
My friendly Crow
I am trying a different approach to faces. I am trying to get away from reality, over do the eyes and proportions.
This one is based on someone elses picture I saw. I saw it and did it from memory. Actually it looks nothing like it but it was not intended to. I liked the pose is all........so this is all mine.
The flower came out OK but I was hoping to add a phrase to it, this didn't work too well.
Thia one, I am not sure where it came from but I found a set of plates at the weekend with shoes on them. I must remember to photograph them
I am thinking of the cartoon girls will make cards some day.
A fairy folk
What about this, black and white. Not at all my style but there ya go.
