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.

Today we stopped at the Samaratan's closet and I found a few things. I spent a bit more than I normally do but you will see why. The first thing I saw as I walked in and could not resist is this one cup tea pot. It's so pretty I really didn't need anymore teapots but, well look at it. Two dollars.

I finally finished Gerry's scarf. It's soft and warm and I made it from the yarn I got at Samaritan's Closet (2 dollars). I have began another and should have enough yarn to make a matching hat I hope. I love the colour.

On our adventures yesterday we made our usual stop at Samaritan's Closet in lake leelanau. I really didn't need anything, I never do. I see it as a donation (sort of). Well I found a few things as I usually do. I guess I am looking now for things and ideas for the garden. I found this small pitcher and basin that I will put an Ivy in for the front porch maybe (or back)

We went out today and stopped at the Samaritans Closet. Its been rather empty of late but I found out they had opened up the back area so there's more to look at. Anyway. I picked up two cushions that I saw the last time I was in there. They will replace a couple on my couch so I can put two more outside.

Gerry seems to think that it's worth a stop because he usually does. He doesn't go in but must think I get bargains. I think I do. So do I need any of it? Nope but I think of it as a donation, I get something for the donation, but as I said I don't need it. I do like it though. SO today's finds. I am not sure where they will go but they always find a home. First thing...........this fish. It is so beautiful the pictures don't do it justice and this will sit in the living room rather than out at the pond where I originally intended.

I know, it's been a very long time. I decided to take a break from blogging for many reasons but now I find I miss it and so here we are I think I will start with this........I spend way too much time on Facebook. I enjoy it but find I have no time for other things. I want to do so much more and so by limiting my time there, I can read...........I have read several books now, actually maybe 8. I am knitting, I am crocheting and sewing. I want to paint too. First I have to paint over some garden stuff I bought and the paint is flaking, so before I put it outside again I need to paint over and spray so that I don't have to do it again next year. I also want to repaint some bird houses I have made in the past. I will show some of my projects here. Some not yet finished. This is my project box of finished things that will make gifts next Christmas.
