A BEAUTIFULL SWAP PACKET


Many month ago my very dear friend JULIA from Vintage With Laces
and I desided to make a swap-  The tema was a journal or book for ATC`s  or tags.
I choosed spring related  , and Julia mode related .

Yesterday the post brought me a big and wonderfull packet from Germany-sorry that it is unpacked without taking photoes---I couldn`t help myself  :)This is the beautifull book dear Julia made for me

look at all the laces and the wonderfull image

And this is when opening it up--all pages were covered in old music paper, and other old book pages.
The ATC is so sweet and lovely.

Another page in the book- filled with beautifull laces- Julia it is a fabolous
piece of art , you have giftet me with.

And here you can see how all the next many pages are made, with little pockets in tull for me to use.

the next packet I also made a big AHHHH when opening, have you ever seen something that sweet,?
spring strawberries ,all in soft pink fabric`s

everyone with a little sweet word- and embroidered with tiny pearls-
I adore them sweetie.


And inside a sweet pink pouch I found this gorgeus soldered bottle-I love the metal buttons and all the wax Julia, used--and you can even lift off the top.

The sweet,dear Julia -also made me a wonderfull spring-cart

and this lovely bookmark- so beautifull hidden in it`s own handmade paper back.

And here you see, the paper back Julia made for the card- and the bag where the bottle was inside.


Julia süsse,- ich bin total in liebe mit all deine wunderschöne sachen-
Thank you from my heart- dearest friend
I will enjoy every time taking your wonderfull book in my hands.
With much love-thank you.
*********

I have made a little teaser for Julia to see, as she has not gotten her packet yet,
I THINK MINE IS JUST AS TEASING AS YOUR`S WAS--TIHI




Have a wonderfull day, all dear blogging friends- and followers.
Hugs and love -Dorthe

SUNDAY THOUGHTS ABOUT INSPIRATIONS.


HAPPY SUNDAY ALL

Today I am linking up to Rebecca`s  Studio sunday  ,showing a few photoes from my surroundings that inspire me dayly to create, little things like this newly finished
lavender mini pillow-


Just yesterday I saw this  (we call it Christmas Rose) little white beauty in my garten


and all over those sweet little ones are saying hello


Se that long piece of wood ,that my husbond rescued from the sea-12 m long-
I think it is a very beautifull ,and inspirational sight.


Old books I just found last week in Copenhagen -only 2 dollars-which is extreamly cheap here in DK.

And then all over my house ,little collections of all kind-sorry for the pot-we were cooking!

And here from my sitting room--Liz do you recognice that sweet pitcher you gave me?
 Tina your box- and Lisa, your sweet old angels ?

A wonderfull drawing of a danish  actress


All those things, and many more help me create- little pieces like this one card.
Some dayes you have to look a bit more for inspiration,than others- but all the time it is there just in front of me-only waiting to be catched.


I hope you all find inspiration to create something ,today,too-
a little art piece- a wonderfull dinner- making beauty in your homes......
Have a gorgeus day, all

Sunshine hugs and love from
