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.

Native American music...............

I have always been intrigued by and loved native American cultures. Mostly the plains Indians or the woodlands although so many have merit and all are interesting. It is America's shame, what happened here. Still they have retained some of their culture against all odds. Still today they are lied to and abused.
I will add to this page as I find music that I love.
This first one I saw about a year ago and then lost it. I would like to know more about these flute players but for now I am posting them here.

Babysitting Blues................

Not really. When Laura works I have Reina here. I try to do things to interest her. Two days a week Tristen goes to day camp so its just me and her. The other day we went shopping she got a new outfit and some craft things. I showed her how to do French knitting. I know she wont stick with it but as she gets older she may want to learn more. Anyway, anything to keep her occupied.

She concentrated very hard, the new gadgets are not as easy as the old fashioned wooden cotton real with 4 nails in it.

I know I have one around somewhere. I must look for it.
Anyway, this one she has is plastic and its not yarn that they are using.

Bella, Bijou and Bodi having some time on the blanket near me. They go outside when I go outside, they go inside when I go inside. They follow me all over the yard.

They are so cute...........No one wants to walk on a leash and don't like leaving the back garden. I guess thats fine they get enough exercize and people and dogs going by provide the entertainment. I will keep on trying with the leash, but they really do not like it.
