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.

I really don't have a lot today but wanted to do a post anyway. In my Facebook page Bluebell Woods, I post a lot of pretty pictures. I love the colour blue (also green) actually I like a lot of colours and my taste in colour depends upon its use. If its clothes then I like neutrals and love black. In my house I suppose earth tones dominated for the longest time but I am slowly changing that.............for flowers though and other things I just love blue. This first picture is a delicate blue, probably my favourite.

I love it in pictures and probably in decorating too. I did a bedroom in blue and I am very happy with it.

There is a point where blue becomes purple, I am not sure where the line is but this china is beautiful

Lavender may be a better word than purple, because this dress is not purple and yet is not blue either

Then there is jewelry. My favourite stone is the diamond but the Tanzanite comes a close 2nd.

I suppose the flowers take the cake though
