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.

My daughter and I agree we must have been Magpies in a former life. Not that I believe that stuff but if I did........well the point is I love glass.
While out with Edna we stopped in Alden. There is a shop there that I always stop in, it has a very large variety of stuff. One thing I found and wanted more of were little glass dishes, not really dishes.......well take a look.

So I was able to find a couple more.I have a couple on my kitchen windowsill. They are useful, rings, pills and so on. They also look pretty.
I am thinking of getting a few for Christmas gifts.

They had more last time we were there, more variety, but I found a couple.

I bought this trivet at the same place. They are really coasters and I think I will get a set for someone as a Christmas gift. They are sparkly and pretty.

I collect, just like a Magpie, to decorate my nest. I love glass. I had no idea what to do with these glass balls, then I found the dish.

Not sure if the cobwebs show or not but I love to hang glass where the light catches it.

I also have some wire baskets full of fish floats, they sparkle in the sun. I was going to show a few more things but the Photobucket is not working so thats it for today.
