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.

Bayside Gallery in Suttons Bay.............................

The Bayside Gallery in Suttons favourite glass shop.
Edna and I went to Suttons Bay today. She wanted to go to the Quilt shop. I didn't want to get more quilt supplies so I just looked. Hard for me to do but I am getting better simply because I have so much already to do. I have given away a whole load of fabric already. I loved doing that rather than hoarding it. Chances of me using all I have is zero to none. Bluebell Woods I described our day out and so this page is rather dedicated to this particular gallery. Oh my, if I could only afford to buy stuff there. I may go back as I did see one thing that was 1/2 off and it was way over 100 dollars so I must think on it. However there were several pieces that I would like and I live in hope that I can persuade Gerry to buy me a birthday pressie.

They have a fake stream running along one side and have fish in it. I often see frogs too. It adds to the pleasure of being there.

I enjoy the shop for the garden stuff but inside is all kinds of wonderful things. Mainly glass and thats why I always call it the glass shop.
I really want one of these

I have learned my lesson though. I can't have nice things. They get broken.
I took the next picture to remind myself, I can do this

Then there are other things that I would enjoy if I had the money to redo things. I could do a bathroom around that pretty fish

You have to look at the individual pieces of art to see how wonderful they are. I think it takes more than one piece to make a garden really shine. I hope to collect a few
