HELLO DEAR FRIENDS, I WANT TO SHOW YOU,A FEW CHRISTMAS CARDS AND ORNAMENTS

I`m sure you are all as bussy as I am here the last
two weeks before christmas.  I so enjoy seing all, you are
creating ,when visiting your blogs, and meeting on FB . 
Before meeting you all, I could have dayes, feeling kind of lonely ,
about my creative life, as not that many of my friends, and closer relations,
are creative like that.


So meeting you ,-first via my blog, and then lately on fb, too, have made 
my life filled with so many happy hours and joy, belonging to this kind of
wonderful community ,where everyone shares their art and their kindness.


Some of you have become very close friends, for which I`m very thankful,


And you all fill  my dayes ,with happy experiences,  creative inspiration,
and the very special love and kindness I feel , between us.
Thank you ,- you are very much appriciated all.


My little gallery , of cards and ornaments ,are created ,with
fabrics,laces, papers, die-cuts, and lots of beautiful glitter of gold, 
and silver ,to brighten the cold and dark dayes many of us are 
experiencing now and many months ahead !
****************

I hope you are all having a lovely week preparing for christmas , and 
send you greetings of hugs and love.

A NEW LITTLE HANGER, AND CHRISTMAS STARTING TO SHOW IN MY HOME .


Having saved ceveral old gold wooden frames , not totally intact,
I got the idea of using them for little collages, as embellishment.
I kind of like the look ,with the other neutral tones.


I also used burlap behind the laces ,transferred photo ,stamp, and a tiny Chralotte doll.
I believe it has been every little girls wish, back then !! 


Here some glimpses from my home ,
The house I created myself,-the  wonderful bottle brush tree is purchased from dear  Kimberly of ArtJoyStuff-
the sweetest little glass dome on foot with the christmas tree inside, I once won 
from dearest Dawn from 
The Feathered Nest
And the loveliest angel doll, is a gift from my other very dear friend  Terri,
from Artfull Affirmations 


Here a corner ,showing an old pedestal, a wooden candle stick and another one
in rusted metal.


My table is filled with old pitchers ,glass candle sticks, and under glass ,some
bottlebrush trees, and other sweetness, among them a beautiful heart from my 
dear friend Lynne from Adorn.




As you can see I`m also collecting old pictures,paintings and many
other things ,- lol.


Tomorrow I`m off ,for a tour to see my daughter and grandkids, in
Copenhagen, while my husbond takes care of our house :-) .
We are to have a real christmas shopping tour in the centre of Copenhagen ,to
enjoy the christmas decked city and enjoy a day off,-all 4 of us.

I will be home sunday again, but will not be much online ,while away,
so I  wish you all a wonderful rest of the week, and
a beautiful weekend to come.

Thank you to all visitors,  I`m so happy to see you here, and to
read your comments. 

Hugs and love

adorned with lovely fabrics, laces and one of her tattered wonderful flowers,and the birdie !!

gorgeously tattered flower, and on top one made from a ribbon!
What is more to say than BEAUTIFUL !!


And look at this tattered cross , isen`t it also beautiful,

More wonderful tattered and chrocheted flowers , I can`t wait to
use them for something lovely.

very much.

SOFT VINTAGE , AND CHRISTMAS !


This vintage ,and neutral coloured card, was created for one of my  friends !



I love the images of the two sisters so much, but don`t remember from where it is, 
also it was already printed out, and therefore it will take lots of time
to refind it again in my files , hehehe.



This other with lots of  christmassy feeling, also was created,
for a Danish friend,- whom luckily, after 14 dayes 
of waiting, recieved it last week !!


I loved to make the snow, with a Tim Holz stencil !!

This coming sunday we are having a big fleamarket , here where we live,
we have gone through all the savings of older furnichures, glasses,
toyes, fabric rests ,pearls, pictures, and much more.
I hope to see a lot of happy people ,wanting to buy something!!

As most of you reading this blog are far,far away, and therefore
really not able to come,- I will just wish you a lovely week, and
a restful and happy weekend.

Hugs and love from Dorthe
