CHRISTMAS CREATION AND A WALK IN THE WOOD

Yes I`m still taking small breaks from the doll sewing- making small cosy christmas pieces.
Lately I have seen so many cute houses everywhere-and wanted to make my own.
I had a tiny wood birds house, and the wooden old spool is from my dear friend Robin.I used embossed metal paper (from my Bog Shot ) Diamond glace glitter and a sweet dove-it`s app.16 cm high.

Yesterday my husbond dragged me out of the sewing room- to take me on a tour to a wood, running along side the sea.Here we parked our car.

See how close we were -isen`t it beautiful?

So gorgeous colors- the water is on the right.

Me in front of the sea.

And this very beautiful old yellowed tree.

Tonight is Halloween - and I wish all my American friends a wonderful "scary" and funny Halloweens Eve.
And ofcourse everyone else whom celebrates tonight-
Tomorrow is first november-and another month dissapered just in a blink-I know most of us will not have more time to relax and enjoy the -NOW- in this coming months -but lets give it a try :)
LOVE AND HUGS

MORE OF ALL KINDS OF CREATIONS FOR CHRISTMAS SHOWS

YES A NEW COLLAGE-
many of you have asked what I meant about "only making dolls"--and I wrote that as an excuse for myself....
the deal here is that I mostly sell my dolls in my real shop, and therefore I really should almost only create them, now for the christmas shows coming up....
But my heart is with those mixed media pieces so very much ,also- that I simply have to do some other things ,than the dolls, now and then :)
This collage in white-grey and black, shows a very beautiful copy on fabric, of a lovely lady. The original is owned by a friend whom collects those old photoes, and whom lend me his map, to make copies of all I wanted-  Thankyou.

Here a fairy, with a sweet smile!

and my little winter angel, --I made many of her, this year.

A more simple but sweet angel, made from an old doily.

As you can see, there are many different dolls in my shop right now, and more are following.
I`m frankly tired of sewing like this, every day- but have to continue ,the best I can.
I guess many of you, are very bussy creating just now-just like me- and I wish you all wonderful hours .
Also thankyou so much to all the new followers - I`m so happy you are here-,just very bussy right now, so not much time left to visit you.

Love and hugs- to you all.

TIME FOR A NEW COLLAGE- AND SOME WONDERFUL GIFTS


Even it really is not "allowed" for me ,to sew anything else than dolls (well almost) I had to make this collage today- I missed putting fabric`s and laces together-and also had sold many of the collages in my shop,SOOO I took time for this.


It is all fabric- no paper- the bird is made with gel-transfer- and the text and mark is copied on fabric, in my ink-printer.I used old,and new laces as well.

And after visiting a dear friend Diane  
at Diane Knotts Musings I was so inspired to sew an apple--this is my winter apple, with
"ice" on to top.

I have got some awsome gifts resently- and this is from my very dear friend- Paula.
Paula embroidered the little pincussion after an old pattern- isen`t it a beautiful  piece.Her stitching is fantastic.

Sweet Paula also sewed the  pumpkin to me, -it now rests on top of a tarnished silver candlestick.
and in front of the pincussion is two halloween tags also from Paula.
Thankyou so much dearest angel friend, you are in my thoughts .

And look at this so beautiful envelope-it was made of Robin- whom have become a very dear friend also.
Robin has an Etsy shop, and I LOVE shopping there- go take a look at her crasy and beautiful creations

Inside this wonderful packaging waits the sweetest gift for me...

Spool-doll Trixie- isen`t she just to love?

Robin so generously gifted me with Trixie when I ordered her bigger sister :Herbs-here with a bird from home- BOO.
Thankyou Robin dear- and congratulations with today.

The pumpkins behind is another story ,coming later.....


Nine o`clock- time for evening tea - and time for wishing you all a lovely day,-or night-
I`m so happy for all the new follovers whom are visiting my blog-
many of you don`t have a link to your blog on your profile page ,so I can`t find you- I`m sorry about that.
Love and hugs, to all

THANKYOU ALL DEAR FRIENDS,YOU ARE WONDERFUL

THANKYOU FROM MY HEART-
--calling for help, you are all there-you are the best of friends.
Unfortunately it seems ,that so many of you ,do have the same problem ,as I have-and that noone can solve it without changing to another browser!! I`m a chicken ,so I will hope for better dayes, from Blogger- and wait-like many of you also do.

And a funny thing is, that it seems ,some of the dissapering comments,arrives annyway-we just can`t see it.
That happened with both the somment to Theresa, and also to Tanya.
And speaking about Tanya, from Bead and Needle-- look what I bought from her shop lately!
Tanya makes the most beautiful jewlery, and when she newly had a sale in her shop ,I could not talk sence to myself, but had to "hit the button" saying : BUY
isen`t this necklace the most gorgeous piece?

Tanya and I met not long ago, -she is a very sweet and talented woman-and I love visiting her blog.
And she is also a most generous friend , see what followed the necklace I bought-
A beautiful present :earrings that match in the most wonderful way - Thankyou dear Tanya, I love them, and I love the birds used ,and the sweet nest in the necklace.

Also ,there was this beautiful old laces and kerschif,---fragile and lovely,
beautyes from far apart ,that made my day, and still does.
Thankyou again dear Tanya.

*********************
And last -but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST- photoes of my two beautiful grandchildren.
I have just visited them-and their parents -this week- and we had  some wonderful hours together.

I alwayes miss them in my every day life-as we live far apart, -so once a month I try to take a tour to see them.
I think they are the sweetest and best grandchildren, ever :)

**************
I wish all of you a beautiful week-end, and once more,
THANKYOU for alwayes being there for me , you are the best!

Hugs and love
