FAIRY IN A SILVER SUGAR BOWL

I finished my edition of the wonderfull tutorial from The Feathered Nest ,the -Fairy in a jar.
I used an old silver sugar bowl, and a little glass cover.The glass is just resting upon
the bowl, not glued.

I had to make the little girl almost half as big as she was, so she could fit inside
and placed her in white,with two small eggs.
She also got a lace collar ,and her wings I made
with both the small,and big pattern,so
now she can really fly.

Dawn`s sweet vers, I hung around the top of the glass bell
and hung a glass heart in the end of the string.
I thing Dawn`s little fairy rests very beautifull here.

The picture quality could be better,but I hope
you gets the idea.

Lots of good wishes for a piecefull and happy new week
for all.

A wonderfull gift all the way from Australia



In Australia lives a danish (bornholmsk) woman--Bente Wright- that many years agowhen wisiting her sister---still living here on the island--- found out that I was -like her- making dolls- and therefore wanted to wisit me in my shop.Ofcourse we talked and exchanged adresses. And on my next birthday I recieved a beautifull doll from Bente. She lives in my bedroom, and have since recieved sisters almost every year from Bente to keep her compagni.And naturally there have been flying dolls the way back to Australia from here.


Here is the wonderfull fairy I found when opening the packet today.Look how beautifull she is made-the mirrow and all. Thankyou so very much Bente, she is wonderfull dear.


I took more pictures of this lovely fairy, but they were very blurry.


Another wonderfull gift I recieved the other day is two old books.It was again my dear friend Christoph from Køln-Germany (a collector of old books)that when visiting a flee-market here ,found these two treasures to me.the two text-pages comes from a book with collections of lots of different handwriting ,ready to be used in pictures.


This is also blurry, excuse me.



And then look here, -do you see what this is ? Old sledges and spools from a loom
the spools still with thread of gold and silk
This wonderfull gift Anette -the wife of Christoph- and dear friend brought me
from Germany. look at the wonder of all this.

Thankyou so much ,
Vielen dank beide , es is so schöne geschenke.


Wishing you all dear friends a wonderfull evening

Wonderfull buyes, and a gift

As the wonderfull artist KC Willis some weeks ago offered the members of : KC Willis Collage camp, to buy one of her so very beautifull art-pieces for a very fayworable price, I just had to ask her to make one for me. I Choosed : Pretty Nose,-because I love this very strong image of a young woman, and the text KC choosed to follow the collage.
And my heart jumped of joy when reciewing the packet today.It is just so very beautifull, -the colors -all the beautifull small accents, and layers, and pieces of materials, and bling-blings-
I love it KC,-thank-you.


And then on top of this treasure there was a gift for me, --just look at this stunning little art-piece, is`nt it georgeus?I love the texture, and the burned edges, and the text,are surely chosen for me,----well KC I alwayes loved palying with dolls, but I sooooo love all your tough weemen too, and I will treasure your art forever.-Tomorrow it will hang on my wall here in front of my computer.


A while ago, I saw this little charming and sweet birdhouse at Chabbycottagestudio,
and fell in love with it, -and now it is hanging in my window, facing the Eastsea in my studio, and is exatly as wonderfull as it looks here in my photos. Just love it, Gail.


Here seen from the back-side----it is beautifully made, and full of small deetails,
what a house for a little bird, just look at the wonderfull colors and stamps.
So what more to wisch?
Beautifull art from wonderfull friends in different places all over the world.
And even more wonderfull, we had such a great week, with my daughter,grandchildren and son in law.-They left today, and I realy miss them ,
so it is very good to have all of you dear friends out there.
Wishing you all a lovely wednesday.
