Hi, it's so nice you found my blog, now I could visit yours too and I have had a great time browsing your posts. I love your collections and the Practicasl Magic book is very special !!
The little figurine marked unieboek 1979 isn't a witch though. It is Dutch and it is the wife of David de kabouter ( David the gnome), very popular here in The Netherlands in the seventies and eighties. David and his world were drawn by the Dutch artist Rien Poortvliet. There was a cartoon series about him too. I've got one of his books about the gnomes. It is a lovely figurine. The little gnome women are so nice to look at ; ) Good luck with collecting and I will visit again soon, because I love your site !!!

Hi Jaz. That's a pretty interesting hobby.

Regarding my camera: it's a 4.7 megapixel camera. Two months ago I nearly bought a 12 megapix Canon Rebel. It has everything. It's a Canon. It's great in low-light, it's lightweight, it has a bunch of fancy settings and features, great image quality.

Then I saw some sample pictures. Next I looked at the samples from this 4 megapix job. There was no contest. These pictures looked like they came from a film camera. The Canon pictures looked like they came from a digital camera.

The camera is from a manufacturer that doesn't even make cameras - they make lenses. So I bought the Sigma SD14 with a Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS Zoom Lens. It's not for everybody. It's heavy, it's not a point and shoot, has only rudimentary features, it's terrible in low-light. But I love it. Can you tell?

I like those ceramic mushrooms. And I see your dog. One bite and he'd swallow up my angel (4 pounds!)

What kind of camera did you get recently?

Thanks Jaz, that is me, most people they dont know me by face. I will visit your blog to see new posts
Hi Jaz, I love to come and see your pictures as you post them . So beautiful and your garden is gorgeous. You came by my blog and asked where I sell my work (witch ornaments). I sell a lot on eBay and there is a link there you can check. However, I send out a email newsletter to my customer list and sell most of my work outright right away. If you would like to be on my list, please come by my blog and email me your email address and I will be glad to add you to my list. It is strictly for that purpose and I don't give out peoples email addresses. Thank you for your interest and I love your witch collection! Tammy
