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.

This next one I copied from a Christmas card, at least the idea was from the card. The quote is "Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself"

Another face and this one I liked her expression. I think I can do something with this style.

Now I need to find an alternative to the black ink......the pencil leaves smudges. I may find a different type of pencil that does not smudge.

I am sharing with Cottage Style party
Lavender Garden Cottage


  1. Love them Janice! My fav is the fairy looking down, with the pointy ears. She is sweet ;o) Thanks for showing your art ;o)

  2. What wonderful paintings! I am so envious. I can't paint a lick. My art is mostly in my quilts, I guess. I especially like the chickadee.

  3. These are beautiful Janice - you are very talented and creative. I especially love the chickadee! Thanks for sharing!


Please leave a comment I love to hear from you
