NEW DRIFTWOOD-AND SEA DOLL.


Hello my dear friends- here I am back again- Mathilde is home with mom and dad-we were both so sad when saying goodby yesterday in Copenhagen!
So to make me feel a bit better I thought I would post one of my newest nymphs from the sea!


I used a piece of a kind of plastic-- from a fishermanns net for body, and then my beloved driftwood pieces for arms and legs,and wings. Hair is also found on the beach-


and that goes for the gum pieces also. 


She landed far away as a gift for a very dear friend-so I thought I could show her off now.

I look forward visiting you all again, and hope your week have been happy as mine!
I came home to the Island and a beautiful warm-and sunny weather today, so have been sitting out with a friend for some hours,chatting and relaxing-I hope your saturday will be equal lovely.

Warmest hugs and love to you all.
And welcome to new followers.
