BLOGGER DIFFICULTIES AND NEW CREATIONS


YES me too-- problems commenting, also- AND some bloggers tells me they have a big warning entering my blog, that their MIGHT be virus on it!!!!!!. like so many other experiensed last year.  It is all BLOGGER PROBLEMS ,and that Internet Explorer does not support BLOGGER anymore .  --I do not have virus, I have scanned my computer several times ! and  I so hope they will soon fix it. And I hope  you will visit me even if the sign comes up , please.

This piece of wood, have stayed with me for long, but last week I thought I would do something pretty with it, and dressed it with lots of laces, and nature elements.
The tile in front is covered with ink in a special tecnic, that I read about at LISA`S BLOG  ,when she shared it last year, and ROBIN so generously gifted me with the tiles and the material to use with it.

I used a found feather, a piece of bark, skeleton leaves, and twigs.
I love how it turned out. It is only 12 cm high and 10 wide. 

This year again I have found many skeleton leaves :)

Also made a tag, I had this piece of terracotta/brown fur ,that matched her lips so great.

Photoes from my walk at the beach last week- as you can se there are no snow here yet,only long winter shaddows.

and big waves bringing wood from the sea to shore.


Thankyou for beautiful comments and for new followers, it all means so much to me, and I feel blessed with all the precious friendships I have in blogland, and all the goodnes between bloggers.
Next post I will show you what entered my door -out of the blue and totally surprisingly -it is something beautiful,:)

For now hugs and love and a happy week-end to you all.

MORE BLOGGING GOODNES AND BLESSINGS

An ATC  I have made for a swap- more about that later!


Even after christmas I have been gifted with amazing gifts.
Before christmas I was the happy winner of dear DAWN `s beautiful giveaway, -she had made the most beautiful tiny christmas tree, and gorgeously put it under a glass dome, on a silvery pedestal

And when opening her packet, those pretty laces ,lovely rolled up with seambindings-an old photo,a resin charm, a page from a ledger book- a white wonderful christmas tree, and some other old papers, were there , as extra gifts for me, thankyou sweetie from my heart-I love it all. 
And the tree ! Isen`t it just so beautiful ?

See how fabolous it is decorated,  I love Dawn used the tiny brooch.All in all I guess it is maybe 25 cm, from foot to top of dome.I thought I had won the sweetest tree- but not the rest....so I was so exited to see it all there in the packet.
Thankyou my dearest Dawn, you are a very precius friend, and the most sweet, kind and helpful blogger ever.Your tree is still here in my window, as I hate to pack it down already :) I love it ,it is the most gorgeous little decoration.


Also I had ordered the most fantastic creations from another dear friend  REBECCA - and she so dearly ,also gifted me with the most beautiful gifts.


Look at those gorgeous packed  parcels! old tinsels, old decorations- ....  

And look what was inside - all this wonderful gifts for me, -I love the heart and the sweet sock-and little bird


And see here another so very beautiful fabric heart, with the most lovely laces. See the key with the heart and cross on, so meaningful on this heart.-Thankyou my dear,dear Rebecca, I couldn`t believe my eyes seing all this.


Here is the Cone I purchased from Rebecca- it is wonderfully decorated , on top, with old beautiful pieces

like this bird, a tree, and old tinsel, and papers- I so love it,

and this gorgeous flower,that I also purchased is FANTASTIC- big and beautiful.

Dear sweet Rebecca, from my heart ,also thankyou ,to you- I will treasure all this alwayes, and YES your cone is also still not packed down --
Because of christmas, those packets only arrived in the new year, so I have to enjoy them for a while,before they are packed away for next years happines.

FRIENDS ARE ANGELS WITHOUT WINGS


This romantic Valentine -like card I want to "send" to all of my dear blogging friends all over the world, to say thankyou ,for the most wonderful year gone. Thankyou also to new followers, I am so very happy to welcome you, and to experience your blogs,-- I look forward to many beautiful hours in your compagny-both new and old friends.

I also would like to show you this -I think-beautiful collection of english tee- and dinner service set.

I bought it many years ago, in a local antique store, and payed very little for all .

There is everything needed for 8 persons for dinner and tea-

and with so many different paintings /motives-which I love.-maybe you saw that on the dinner plate, there is
 snow falling!

And only on this 3 different pieces there are also 3 different motives.

here two dishes

I love to use this set in wintertime, and I love the name : Harvest time, The Friendly village.

We already started on second week in January-and I must say I so enjoy the quietnes and piece- that alwayes follows a new year here on this little island- piece to  breathe,and start all over creating for the new season to come,arriving with spring in May.

I hope you also have time to breathe, and to feel the new year slowly starting to take form.
I send you many hugs and love-

MY FIRST CREATIONS IN 2012

Today was my first day in the studio in the new year,- and after cleaning the mess a little bit, I created this heart and cart for a wonderful friend. The bird image is transferred to cloth and the pocket holds driftwood from my beach.

the card is created with cardstock from an old photo album,and I also used the -see through-paper that stayes between the pages- on top is a piece from an old ledger book and a real old photo- the leafe is a dryed baby oak leafe.

*****************************************

AND THE LAST OF MY CHRISTMAS GIFTS RECIEVED  FROM DEAR  BLOGFRIENDS!
This first one from my sweet friend from The Nederland   Yvonne   It   is the most beautiful heart made as a card to open up.


Se the gorgeous rose she made and added outside with the fragile and lovely lace.
And inside the dearest angel, and her sweet wish, -with more laces ,flowers and bling.
It is so fabolous,and I love it  Yvonne- Thankyou dear-from my heart, you are a fantastic artist

Isen`t it pretty with all the little details.

Nellie I have known for many,many years now, and we are good friends.
This wonderful woman and fantastic artist send me one of her soldered hangers,with the sweetest little angel.Only the soldered piece messures 18 cm, and then comes the old fragile beautiful fabric .

See the beautiful quote she wrote on the back.
Thankyou dear Nellie, I treasure it so much.
