MY SWAP PIECES ARE HERE


My dear family left yesterday,after 4 wonderfull dayes,-so I felt a bit lonely---but then
today my swap packet arrived ,and I felt embrased of the friendship in blogland.
***
 Jillayne  of , A Fine Seam, started and did all the hard work,to make this swap great.
Look what the sweet lady added, and made for all of us to ,to hold the 5 swap squares.
A beautifull pouch,with a handmade rosette, topped with a great bling,bling button.
She also ,so dearly made a beautifull heart, as gift.
Thankyou so much dear friend.


I recieved 5 beautifully made squares,-this first one comes from Teresa  the HeART of Words-
it is so beautifull, and I love the colors of water and sky -mixed with the red berryes and white snow.Every image wonderfully cut out, and placed onto a hymn --I love the tail, has been allowed to go outside the background, and the way the piece becomes a beautifull whole.


This next little winter wonder, has been made of my dear friend Diane from Diane Knott`s Musings.
She is a fantastic and so sweet artist, and makes the most beautifull art pieces -just look
at this little winter guy,freezing in the snow, with all the handsewn detaiels, love him !.


This wonderfully handpainted winter lady is made of  Tina One Wild Swan,
it is so much more beautifull in real, I am so in love with this sweet little face,and how she kind of belongs ,into the wonderfull snow land surrounding her.she is beautifully plased onto a silver card.(Reminds me of my childhood fairy tales)


The two last pieces are real christmas squares. Here a so sweet and cosy snowmann from  Nook Cranny Gifts    ,so wonderfully made with old  laces and fabricks, small cones,and pearls, look at the sweet background, and how he salutes the coming christmas.


This last one ,fantastic painted from Marcia  The Painted Gift-
is two darling snowmen amongst the beautifull green branches covered in snow, and decorated with christmas bowls. the snow is made so it looks almost real, and stands up from the background-they looks very cold both, :)


I feel so very blessed ,being able to recieve all those wonderfull artpieces, from people I even don`t know, -
that ..all because of Jillayne, and her very big work.
I know how much she did,to make this a happy event,-and it surely was,-THANKYOU  dear Jillayne.
***
And THANKYOU to you five wonderfull artist that made  me sit here with this beautifull bunch of  christmas themed squares, to make my december even more joyfull.

****
Sending you all , many autumn gretings-
and big hugs and love.

PAPER-FABRIC COLLAGE -WONDERFULL FINDS

Even it is forbitten for me,right now, to create anything else than dolls,I just have to
get papers and fabrick together in my hands,now and then.


And so I made this collage the other night, using the beautifull Paper Whimsy
image, old laces, small punched tags, and added a little purse,
on the old book cover.


Saturday I went to an antique show, where I was very lucky to find lots of
old fhotographs, and albums, for a  (for Denmark ) cheap money


See the little shoes and the red velvet album


an old box, also with red fabric inside and a mirror


and sooo many of those wonderfull  photoes.
I will scan some for you, dear friends.


This was the sky friday evening, have you ever seen something that beautifull, in
gold and pink?


Here the children are autumn free from school, this week-so my dear little family
will visit us in the end of the week- I can`t wait to see them-

Have the most wonderfull monday, all sweet friends-
the weather is fantastic,this morning,here --cold,crisp-and sunny.

GIFTS FROM SWEET WOMEN IN BLOGLAND, AND ...........


Before getting ill, I recieved a wonderfull gift, from a very sweet, and kind woman,
BETH   from GATHERING DUST
 I had asked to by something speciel,-and Beth told me she would send it-just like that-as
a gift.
Not only did she send an old needlework magazine, but she added lots of
beautifull old ephemera--:

see the gorgeus tag she made-I so love it,

a bunch of old wallpaper sheets, so lovely, in those
pastel colors I like ,very much.


Old cards, and photoes-and funny" tickets"


This is a beautifull image from a magazine


and look at this beautifull cower from  a 1918 magazine.
There are so many gorgeus motives inside to use.
I`m very thankfull Beth ,for all the lovely things you send me,
HUGS &  THANKYOU,DEAR.
If you visits BETH`S blog, you can find a "button" to click,for visiting her gorgeus shop,
to find more great stuff ,like this.


I`sent this a beautifull and sweet brooch,-I just love it-and saying that to
Sherry Anne  from Createology,--- the dear woman, send this lovely pretty thing to me,
for present, --how wonderfull is that ?
Thankyou dear Sherry- this was so very sweet and kind of you.

Beautifull tokens of blog-love ,from precius friends.
It is amazing to experience , and I think you all agree,we would not have met ,such kindness in any other place,than here.
************************


Last week, I also recieved this gorgeus crone, That I bought from KARLA
from, Karla`s Cottage


I guessed it would fitt perfectly on the head, on this paper-clay doll,
I made some months ago, --and it did.
It is fantastic, a fairy crown with old bling, and velvet flowers, glitter and tulle.
I don`t need to tell you I love it!!!


*****************************
Today was working day, and my dear friend Solvejg ,was here to help me.
I had an idea, to use those zinc pieces for charms, to hang on the christmas tree,
I also this year are decorating ,in the best hotel on the island.
I found image from Paper Whimsy, some faux leaves with gold,-heart blings,and crystals,
made a piece,and Solvejg made a bunch of those pieces,for me.

I think they looks real good!!

They are app. 5 inches both high and wide-
Thankyou so much for your wonderfull help, today, dear.

Ofcourse I also worked myself....
This is the fourths season`s little winter angel, I have made

This year, she has brown hair, and silver wings,-
like the other years, she is app.5 inches high.


Now, this must be more than enough for today,--I hope you had energi to follow me to here,---
if so, I wish you all a wonderfull sunday evening,-
Once more thankyou for the dear gifts, and sweet comments-
