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.

Who is that masked lady......................
Do you ever think you were born in the wrong day and age? I mean do things from long ago seem more exciting, more romantic? Even if we did the masked balls today it would not be the same. Our society is too different. I suppose its really a moot point because if I were born back then I would be a peasant and therefor not invited. I doubt I would have made it to being a maid. Ah well.........just pretend OK>
Still, I can dream.........I loved the clothes from other era's and all that went with it. Especially the men. Men now do not know how to dress, suits and ties, how boring........well women either for that matter. You can tell the ones born to money compared to the pop culture icons who have no class or taste (for the most part)IMO.
Now imagine the costumes that may have gone with these lovely masks......imagine the intrigue. Imagine the freedom.
Ladies could meet their lovers, or find one and never be known for who she really was. I am not saying that is what I would want but I can see the novelty especially in other times when women were married for position rather than love.
Naturally there were scandals there always would be but.......well this was one way to avoid that maybe. In any case its all fantasy and romance and not reality. A different time and morality for the rich. The poor as always were too busy working.
Enjoy the beauty if not the idea
