Dear Lisa, thanks so very much, I`m so happy, and feeling very lucky to have won this

The last two dayes I started creating some new driftwood angels.


This piece I found on the shore where I live ,and fell in love with it, because of the holes
and different colors.

She enden up like this,
The other one, was made of a piece of wood ,also found on the beach,

Thanks so much my dear friend.
The rules are, among others ,to pass this on to 12 bloggers, - but I would not know whom to choose and whom not,-so please forgive me if I`m breaking this one rule, by saying, that I will pass this on to all my blogging friends. You all inspire me in some way, and you all show positivity through out the years, making me feel blessed being a member of this blog-land.
Thanks to all of you.

Today when I really had to look through all my stuff, in my studio, I could not help doing this little birdsnest.
I have just bought this tool ,that you can make paper pots, for sawing seeds, and had to try it.


I used two diff. papers, old musiksheet and some very thin and used paper.
Then I filled it up with this thin yarn, and the bird.The egg is a small stone, that i painted.
I finished with a little bling-bling, a piece of driftwood, with the word :spring- silkribbon and lace
coloured in coffe, and some dried twigs.



I hope you all have done a thing, that you enjoyed today, -----
Love and hugs Dorthe

This is a fantastic heart present

Today I recieved a fantastic gift, from my very very special blog-friend JoAnnA from Moss Hill Studio
As you all know, I admire and love the art of this wonderfull, strong, and dear woman, and it surrounds me in my home, from room to room.
She is the sweetest and most lovely woman in every way,-a friend that listens and helps--we talked and laughed together---------------
and her art is gorgeus and so special.
Inside this little bag, was the most wonderfull necklace, that Joanna made from old delicate materials, some from an old french silk baby bonnet,-- old laces, pearls, and chains.

Isn`t it the most beautifull thing ? I`m so in love with it,
thankyou so much my dear jojo.


When not around my neck ,it will be displayed here in my "office" together with some of your
other wonderfull artpieces.
Thankyou for making my day happy Joanna.

I`m very thankfull for all the wonderfull moments I have adventured since being

some have become very dear friends, as you have read ,if following my blog.

What is friends all about ?

A friend is - among many other things-joy and happines shared,
gifts given and recieved- one soul in two boddies. The magic of
soul sisters is a wonderfull thing to experience.
That`s how I feel about Lisa from Tarnished and Tattered --. and
what can make a person more happy than recieving words, that ones
feelings are returned.
See here what she send me ,when recieving a pair of her wonderfull ballet-slippers.
A beautifull card, that turned around ,-revieled this handwritten "poem"


Together with this wonderfull token of friendship, Lisa had made me a
bookmark, showing ,the meaning of the words:--two sweet wemen,close to each other.


Lisa is not "only" a very dear and sweet friend, she is also a wonderfull artist,
and I`m in love with all she is doing.(you have to take a look at her blog)
See here ,-what could be more sweet, than a pair of the smallest ballet slippers,
I have seen---maybe 10-11 cm.long-- and they are beautifully altered.


look at the lace and silkband , the tiny old flowers, and the lovely fabric inside .
I love them , Lisa.
Thankyou so much for sending them to me, and for your so very dear and sweet gifts.



Another sweet friend I met last year, is Silke from Metamorphosis.
Silke and I are very different in doing our art, as you will see when visiting her.
She is a painter,on both canvas and on her own paper colage`es, that gets a wonderfull transparent look, they are wonderfull.
And I love her sweet painted faces.
This is a card I recieved from Silke with one of her
original paintings , and I just love it.
The photo don`t do the colors justice they are more in
blue and rosa tones, but I can`t get it right,sorry.

On the back Silke writes a poem by Anais Nin:
"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born"

It is so very true ,and beautifull said, and I totally agree
with Silke,----My world has become bigger too,after meeting her and her wonderfull paintings ,and sweet soul.
Thanks so much my dear friend.


I have met many,many other wonderfull women and artists,the last year of blogging
and some of them has become very close, -for that I`m thankfull,
---As I am for all and everyone visiting me here, and following my blog.
I am wishing you all a very happy friday

SOME FLEAMARKETING AND A NEW COLLAGE

I struggled out of my house today, to go the 20 meters to my studio,in snow, as I wanted to spend some time in there.
My collage is made from mostly fabric, but also paper,and stamping,
I love the light blue color with the brown . The photo is not quite the right color ,as in real, but shows it a little darker.


And as promised in my last post I have some wonderfull buyes to show you, from a fleamarket
I visited when I was in Copenhagen 1 month ago.
Here some old and beautifull laces.
Buttens, watch, chrystals,a bunch of old train tickets, and some bling,bling.


A beautifull velvet rose



An old journal


An empty, but wonderfull old photo album

Another, very old, and full of wonderfull photoes

Just look at this leather bound heawy thing, with silver locket



A schoup, handwritten sermons



all inside this leather , and with the name of the minister
who wrote them.


Look at this so beautifull handwriting


Just to show the year of all this: 1911


Some handmade pinks , and in white paper doilies




Looks here ,a wonderfull old thing,
dirty but lovely,when clean I`m sure.
Can you immagine wearing something like that?


And last an old box of white buttons,Whom could get too much of those?



This post I guess have to end now, hope you are not tired of looking.
Thanks for all who made me happy ,with comments here, and on
my OWOH blog side.
Wishing you a great week-end all dear friends.
Hugs and Love
Dorthe
