I dream of India


This is indeed India!
The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendor and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of traditions, whose yesterday’s bear date with the moldering antiquities for the rest of nations-the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the world combined.

The Glitter fairy rule


The Rule fairies have taken on a life of their own  which always happens when you let fairies in to your life but this rule is a good one .....  glitter always makes my day better although note to oneself   "don't add glitter to boxes that are going to MR H office"  .....LOL  I send in some cooked goodies in boxes tied with a glittered bow  ..... Mr H had a LOL because he could tell who had open the boxes by the glitter on their hands and faces ......

How would you feel ?

   How would you feel if the photo of your children ended up used in a print advert and you had not been asked you if you minded or even want it to be used in that way. 
 How would you feel if shared  granny secret recipes  and then  someone was promoting your granny secret recipes as their own   they were taking credit for them.  


The answer, you would hate it , you'd be mad as a hatter  but when it comes to the blogging world.... we forget the copyright rules and click, borrow, take images and ideas with no thought to if we should or can. So let me clear it up for you. 

It's okay to see a images and want to share it , get written permission .Ask if you can use it ...or if the site is letting you use them,  Then credit that site.  

Be inspired by some else work but don't just copy it ..... use it as the muse for your own art ..... credit the artist who inspired  YOU. 





~*To clarify....    nothing as far as I know has happening to me as yet but several dear blogging friends have found they images being sold on line ... not a day goes by when I read of someone art been taken without permission ...  with new sites to pin this, pin that   It is all too easy to forgot to credit the right person*~   

My post was just a friendly reminder to do that or the fairy police will be coming to turn you into a toad.

A cup of kindness

One of the swaps at MAMA was a tea cup one ... with a beaded spoon to match  Mm mm lovely idea and so I happily took part.


 My partner was Caroline at http://cmoh.blogspot.com/glitter tart design  and she sent  the most beautiful valentine inspired  tea cup and saucer  and a fabulous beaded spoon to match, but what made it really really special is that the pattern on the cup is almost a match to the one I remember from my Nanna's. It had the same sweet pink rose buds and the same gold leafing. Only the background was a bit darker  but you can imagine my delight at seeing the cup Caroline had sent  


she also add some to die for tea , chocolates  yummy ! and some yummy goodies to play with ... I am spoiled!  Thank you Caroline 











This is the tea cup and spoon I sent to Caroline



 This was a fabulously delightful swap
I linking up with Terri's teacup Tuesday  http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/2013/02/tea-cup-tuesday-pretty-in-pink.html
