My first collage from KC Willis`s camp


As I told you, I`m so very lucky to have been able to join KC Willis Colage Camp
and at last I have finished my first collage . I chose the quote because I think she looks so angry and/or sad. The immage is from Art-e-ology ---

I took a pair of pictures of the flowers in my garden -I think this wild rose is
so very beautifull.



And then take a look at this Foxglove, I have newer seen such a rosette on top, -have any of you
seen something like it?

Hope you are all having a happy sunday,-here 8 o`clock evening it is very beautifull weather here.
All the best

A free bird, flowers in my garden -and new heart angels

I think this is a lovely old birdprint-love the nest, I hope you can use it.


And my roses started blooming, this :madame Alfred Carriere, is so very beautifull

Which I think this Caprifole is too. The color so fantastic

Here my angels are hanging under the roof in my shop



This white one is a little bit flirting I think!!


And then I made some new in a very beautifull old
and faded english cotton.


They are still 75 d.kr, or 13 dollars
plus shipping.




I hope you are all well, and wishes you a beautifull evening.

Approaching the 23/6 SCT. Hans as it`s called here , I made 2 witches.
On this very date we have kept (from the middleage) sending witches to :BLOGSBJERG
This terrible burning of clever wemen we are reminding, -and every year we
make a big fire and sends a doll witch away , to celebrate midsummer.
So here are my witches, I hope they will still be her after 23/6





They are app-. 1/2 m. high sitting on their broom



And this is my shop from where they and everyting
else are being sold.
