LISA`S BEAUTIFUL SLIPPER TUTORIAL, AND A SHOW COMING UP


I have for long wanted to tell you about those beautifull little slippers, made by my dear friend  LISA
from Tarnished and Tattered. I fell in love with them, first time seing a pair,-and I think you will too.
And now Lisa have made a tutorial ,for everyone to buy in her Etsy (just click her name-and you will be right there to see for your self).

Aren`t they so very beautiful ? like little dreams, and starlight  fairy slippers-
Lisa is a most wonderful artist, and I`m sure many of you knows her,-but if not you will so enjoy visiting her blog-  Tarnished and Tattered--it is full of  fabolous creations of many,many kinds.


This is a not good photo from my shop showing a simple and yet lovely decoration.
A big silver glass ball on top of an iron urn -surroundet by an ivy wreath sprayed with a little snow, and
with a zinc ornament hanging from it.

Little matchboxes decorated with beautiful little images ,glitter and a faux silver charm.

My father christmas in red velvet and real fur, he is coming with me to the next show-
this week-end, on the "christmas ship" sailing from the island to Sjælland (Køge) friday.
It is loaded with artists and people selling food specialities from Bornholm-
and I will be there ,too-- with a dear friend Lena, helping me--- hoping to sell some angels ,and..and .....
We will be back home sunday midnight again, so you will not hear from me 
the whole week-end- but monday I will be happy to return visiting all of you dear friends again.


 I wish you a wonderful week-end- and great luck to all  others ,whom like me are on shows this week-end.
Sending hugs and love to you all

This little heart made from old fabric and laces ,and with a beautiful Paper Whimsy image found when visiting NANCY  on her wonderful blog, here.... I made today after finishing another doll!

When blogging you find so many beautiful friends, whom all have so very big and lovely hearts.
One of them is the very dear , and fabolous artist,-and my close dear friend, ever since we met ,last year : Suzy 
Just look what the post brought me yesterday-
A fabolous journal, she made for me- as a gift - a gift just like that- !!!
Suzy had told me there was someting on i`ts  way- but I never ,never thought , that that something would be this gorgeous journal.


The 10 pages is filled with beautiful and special fabric-and laces-in many layers,
combined as only Suzy is able to do , as she have her own very special touch to all she creates. 

wonderful stamped pieces

Lovely ,lovely laces, can you see all those wonderful layers of beauty?

all kept in soft tones of aqua and earth

a little gold and rosa tones, too.

and more fantastic stamps---this is the back

and here I try to show, how wonderful "fat" it is!
This gift took my breath away,- It is a gorgeous labor of love- and I never imagined I would hold one of Suzy`s most beautiful journals in my hands.
I felt so thankful, holding this - I can`t express how much, but my heart is so  touched , and I say
THANKYOU   dearest Suzy, I  love you -you know.
