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.

Yard Sale.........

It has taken me forever it seems, but I have finally set up my yard sale. For the longest time it has been too hot. Now it's too wet. Looks like I may have to wait another whole week.

I cleaned out my jewelry box of all my vintage stuff. I have not had much luck with that yet. Still only had one and maybe 1/2 days.

The things that sold the quickest were Reina's toys. So I think I will be sorting out some of Tristen's stuff, old wood puzzles and stuff he will never play with. I washed all the stuffies and those are nice to give away when little kids show up.

Laura and Reina were my helpers. I made 250 dollars in the one day. I need to do a lot better, I have loads to go through in the basement yet so will need another couple of weekends yet. I also have a bike for sale. Time to rethink and dig in for more stuff. Then a nice dry cool weekend that's what I need now.


  1. Wow! Bonnie & I would have too much fun at your sale Janice! Lots of fun stuff!!!

  2. Good for you!! $250.00 is excellent! I wish I lived closer!! You would be getting some of my money! LOL! Good luck on the future sales! Hugs!
