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.

Just a few more.......

I have not been doing a lot of painting of late because I was working on my outdoor ornaments. I am back to doing a few things in my sketchbook. I can't seem to do much that impresses me. I will post these few for now and I have a few sketches done, I can always hope they will be better but they are not really things worth posting.
The next one I saw on a flower pot. So I bought it so I could get the idea...

It needs to be done in acrylic so I can get the shading proper. Then another that is just goofy
