I have neglected this blog, mainly because I have been busy doing other things. I normally post things I make, or things I find on here. I have not been to the Thrift store in quite some time. I have not been sewing and only just began to do some painting again. So.......not a lot to write about. Oh I have been busy, just mainly things that I have put on my other blogs.
I will sort out a few things to share here.
About a month ago I did find a new (for us) Thrift shop. It was a rainy day and we were heading for coffee before the beach so, we went in to a shop in Lake Leelanau.I have no idea what this is, but will use it as a planter come Spring.
This little dish, just because it was pretty.
I know I got Laura some shoes and an old tea kettle that was hand painted, that too will be a planter. It's put away now. I can't remember the other things I bought now.
I have been painting too, working on another sketch book.
I have not done much that's good. That's OK, it's not meant to be. I do the sketch book just to keep ideas that may or may not become something later.
The new thing I am doing is trying to use some of my photo's. I want to make positive things to share on Facebook. So much negative right now. I want to be able to share some positive thoughts.
I try to have my subject somewhat fit the caption. We know sparrows are little squabbling birdies.
It's a way to use some of my own photography. Maybe later I will have a few good ones.
Well now winter is closing in I will probably be getting back into sewing. Christmas is not too far away. Dread to think about that but will have to very soon.
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.
