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.

Outside decorations...........

We do not have much in the way of snow at the moment. I am happy about that, except my outside decorations would look much better with some snow to cover cords and wires.

View from the front porch above. I finally got the hubby moving. He and Tristen got the trees out front. That was rather a fiasco but it's done. I can not expect more. The lights on the porch......well, no comment there. Thrown around is an understatement, but when they are lit up at night it doesn't matter. I guess one of these days I will get out there and redo.......for now it can stay.
We finally found the outside snowman too

I like this picture of the rocking chair. Almost the same as the first picture but close in

I didnt spend much time out there. It was really cold when I did it. Now I am into baking so I really need some snow to cover up all the junk haha.........ah well, its getting warmer so maybe one day I will get out there and sort it all out.

Have not done a lot out the back but did put up a tree. We had bought a smaller one last year because we couldn't get to all the stuff that was packed away. So that went on the back porch along with an old sled and a couple of wreaths

I would like to put some lights out there too but will save those and maybe do the ally. Everyone on our street decorates the back ally because they have a get together. We don't go because we have Tristen in bed and cant just up an leave him alone. Still I would like to paticipate in the decorating one of these days
