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.

Just a few today.............

On Saturday we took all four poodles to Brenda's Pet Parlour for haircuts. We had to do it in shifts.Two by two. They shake like its mid winter and they are outside or something. Funny how they know where they are going. The groomers or the vets. You would think they would love being groomed and relieved it's not the vets. Brenda always does a wonderful job and they always look so cute, they go in looking like strays and come out all beautified.

Bijou is always cold after a hair cut. It has been almost a year since she had her last operation for stones. We keep her on antibiotics and special food. She still has her treats etc but so far is acting pretty normal. Thank goodness we said no when asked about putting her to sleep. She is active, happy and seems as though she has a few more years in her yet. We take it one day at a time and are thankful she is not in pain.

Bella is looking sweet as always. I love them with long hair but it gets matted and their ears get mucky.
She was keeping warm on the heating pad and chewing a chewy

Brenda says Bodi is like a little bowling ball. She has bad hips and knees and so Brenda just rolls her around to get her done.

Between picking up two and dropping two off I just had to stop in at the Goodwill store right there where Brenda's shop is. Could not help myself. Thankfully not much for me today. Some of their prices are too high for me for things I don't actually need. Still I found 3 treasures. This little pot for one

A teapot. I like this one and may keep it inside. Not sure yet. I have a couple that have chips in that I will put outside and replace them with this one.

Then this little candle house thingie. I pick these up when I see them and have a sort of collection in the house. I already have this one so it will go outside.

I did find when looking through my garden stuff that a lot of things I made didn't survive the storing in the garage. What with Tristen moving his things in and out and my husbands idea of packing things away. Well, lots of broken things. I am saving that china stuff and maybe use for mosaics (like that will happen hehe)
So all for now.


  1. They are cute little fellows all have such sweet faces.

  2. Sorry lots of items got broke! But, I love the idea of mosaics!!! The puppies look so cute! Love them! Nice new treasures you got! Hugs!
