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.

Two weeks if thrifts..........

I am all behind with my posts. I just had to catch up on the couple of things I found at the thrifts recently

This nice little rose dish, what is it? I have no idea but I liked it and its in my living room.
I also found a pretty platter that I love. It's oval shaped and will be very useful at holiday times.

Then there was a small wreath that I thought I could use the flowers from. They are pretty Spring colours and I am not sure what I will do with it but, it will have a home one way or other. I may pull it apart and add it to another wreath.

Anyway, I also found a pot for outside and an angel that is now sitting on the porch.

Anyway that was one days haul.
I do think that I showed the other things so I will leave it at that for now. I can always add to the post if I find the rest.
I am linking up with A Dedicated House, Make it pretty Monday
also with Inspire me Monday
I am sharing with Ivy and Elephants


  1. You always find the best things Janice!!!

  2. Rose dish might be a candy dish or perhaps a relish dish. Beautiful nonetheless! Have a grand weekend!

  3. Let’s take the quantum dots first. Quantum dots, despite sounding thoroughly futuristic, are actually fairly simple things that are easy to mass-produce. In short, quantum dots are just small specks of semiconducting material that emit light when they’re excited.
