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.

New ornament..........

Only one new thing this time. I have been working in the garden on and off when its not too hot. I had found some dishes (prev post) and wanted to make a garden ornament with them. I needed some copper pipe in order to do that. Well finally I got some. So I used this flat Button glass dish and a wavy dish that together makes a flower

I stuck those together and then I used a small bottle on the back. I was hoping that would hold the pipe. It worked.
On the front I found one of my salts that I have a collection of, wont miss one will I? So stuck that to the front and then added a glass ball.

I am still not happy with the height and will change that tomorrow. Right now it sticks up above everything like a stop sign.So tomorrow I put it on a shorter stick. I am using copper. I think it may go green eventually. This is how it looks in the garden.

The bottle on the back works well to hold it.

I am pretty happy with this one. I think tomorrow I will start a new one. I have two glass plates outside that are on a ledge and cant really be seen. If I can find a couple of bottles to put on the back of those I will make a couple more and put them in the flower beds out back. Suncatchers.

  2. Beautiful! Makes me want to go shopping for more glass pieces!
