Can I see again? No, but there are odd moments of clearer vision that enable me to work in fits and starts. In this instance, I have come up with a collage, The Fruit Look.


“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”
Helen Keller [1880-1968]


Ephemera used to create this collage is from Design Cuts and the Biodiversity Library on Flickr.

I have not yet uploaded it to my galleries, except for Crated, but if you’re interested,, do bookmark the page and return in a few days for all the other links.

I was surprised to discover that I have never added Beulah, Peel Me A Grape to this blog. Or the WordPress search isn’t working properly! Do I need to tell you where the title comes from? No, I thought not.

While you can find all kinds of gifts and products with this design in my other online galleries (as in the links below), I have chosen to feature what is available at Fine Art America.

And now I’m going to go back on my avowed intention and show you a Rickshaw Messenger Bag from Zazzle because I like it so much!

A flying visit to show there’s a little more order in the house. Not much but a little. The downside is that the word ‘flying’ is a complete misnomer as I’ve overexerted myself and done something to my hip (yes, the one that was replaced a few years ago). This means that my rather grand, brass-effect zimmer frame bought in Crete has come in very handy.

It doesn’t, however, allow for much sorting out of what remains to be done but I’ve employed a delightful handyman who hails from Vienna and has been a local here for many years. He moved a multitude of heavy boxes — yes, those damn books — from one room to the other on Friday, and he is returning to put together some flat pack beds and a couple of other units (Ikea, naturally) Oh, and move more boxes.

In the meantime, life can be very sweet when you least expect it for on the sales front, I’ve sold two of these light switch covers…

Make Me a Willow Cabin Valentine Postcard
Make Me a Willow Cabin Valentine Postcard

Make Me a Willow Cabin was created some time ago but I don’t think I’ve ever sold it as a greeting card or postcard or on anything, which is a shame. I’m rather fond of it.

‘Make me a willow cabin…,’ declares Viola to Olivia in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Viola, disguised as Cesario, has been sent by Orsino to declare his love for Olivia. Viola, however, chooses to give the message in her own way, telling Olivia that if he, Cesario, were in love with her, he would go much further than simply send a go-between.

Vins Spiritueux, Nectar of the Gods Round Wall Clocks
Vins Spiritueux, Nectar of the Gods Round Wall Clocks from Zazzle

I’ve sold one of these clocks! They’re available in different sizes and also a square shape.


“When I do count the clock that tells the time,
And see the brave day sunk in hideous night;
When I behold the violet past prime,
And sable curls all silver’d o’er with white;
When lofty trees I see barren of leaves
Which erst from heat did canopy the herd,
And summer’s green all girded up in sheaves
Borne on the bier with white and bristly beard,
Then of thy beauty do I question make,
That thou among the wastes of time must go,
Since sweets and beauties do themselves forsake
And die as fast as they see others grow;
And nothing ‘gainst Time’s scythe can make defence
Save breed, to brave him when he takes thee hence.”
William Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s Sonnets
