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.

Christmas glitter........

Apart from the deep meaning of Christmas which is first and foremost the whole reason for the season, I must admit I love the glitter. The Magic.

The lighted up houses and trees.

The beauty and glitter, the candles and tinsel.......its all so lovely. What on any other occasion would seem maybe tacky, it just looks right.

The tree decorations for me, take me back to other times. Memories of friends and family no longer here. I have several ornaments from my childhood and some that were gifts of people who are gone.

It remains my favourite time of year.

  1. It is a good time of the year to remember past friends and family who are no longer here.

  2. Your Christmas images are beautiful. They capture the magic of the season. There really is magic at Christmas. I have a sign that I put in my kitchen last year, it says "all hearts come home for Christmas", I believe that even though a loved one can not be with us in body at Christmas, their spirit will still be with us.

  3. It's my favorite time of year too ;o) It's very magical! I feel it in the air! I love being outside, in the cold, with all the lights around and the stars shining bright. The air is so fresh and it is so quiet! I love it ;o)

  4. Me too, it's my fav time of year. I think is more of a feeling and family. Love all these beautiful images.
