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.

Finished items................

It took long enough. I was waiting for the hubby to cut some pipe for me. Remember the hen and the matching plate I found.

Well they went together like they were made for each other. I fitted them with a small block of wood with a hole drilled through it. The copper pipe fitted in well.

AS you see these type of ornaments fit in among flowers and do very well. They need washing once in awhile.

The 2nd project was the tea pot. I had to use it this way because the top was glued on so not much else to be done with it

I set this one a bit higher, it blended in with the larger garden and I really like the colours.

Then I have one more thing to show. I was on Ebay..........should have known better, I don't go there. Can't remember now why I was actually. It's not something I usually do. Anyway. I found this cup and saucer.

The asking bid was 50c so I bit one dollar. I won the bid and sent off my money via pay pal. The owner contacted me. She lives in my town and offered to save me the postage by bring the cup and saucer over. We met, she was about to return the postage to me (pay pal takes it direct to her account) so I said "Oh no, I am sure you were hoping for more than 50c I appreciate you bringing to me" She said it wasn't out of her way but still. So I think in all it cost me 6 bucks. I am going to put it in the garden and use it like this one
