TAGS of mine- GIFT from Lynne and RIBBONS of friendship !

Just want to show you 2 little tags ,I did --the first I made with the paper backing, used to drive a driersheet through my printer...I did not have the results on the driersheets I wanted, .but this looks really special I think.



This is made with a napkin and a transparent copy.


And before going on to the gifts ,-a present from the sea and beach isen`t it fantastic ?Seaweed in white rosa,and green--the colours are fading a bit ,but this must be the laces of nature!


Now, some time ago I recieved the sweetest gift from my friend, dear LYNNE ,
see how sweet she stamped the envelope.


Inside I found the most beautiful packed gifts for me, and some wooden
bricks  used for Bingo cards.


Opening the lovely handcoloured lace and cheese cloth, was one of Lynne`s beautiful tags,using
the wonderful butterfly stamp, again,and decorated with snippets of lace and paper!
Isen`t is so lovely - I do admire Lynne`s art so much.


AND those Bingo cards for me to play with- I have never found bingo cards in Denmark, so I am 
so very happy that my dear friend ,have now send me some, to play with.
Thankyou dear,dear Lynne, for this wonderful packet and your friendship.

COLLAGE ON BOOK COVER

I recently was almost gifted with some old photoes, and some empty photo albums-
and was inspired to make this  linen and lace collage ,as I also last week
found a little bag with those wonderful old  lace pinns, some of which as you can see ,
still have thread rolled on.



The photo was a big one, that I cut down, to fit the frame.
I added the linnen thread, and old laces, and embroideries.


I think the bow is somehow not nice here, and that it should have been white, and softer,
so maybe I will change it - I love this old tulip embroidery,with the laces ,such a beautiful work.


This photo I took yesterday evening, from my bedroom window,which is looking out
over the Baltic Sea.The sun was settling and the light was so beautiful.
You can see the start of my Lillac  hedge ,that at last have started blooming and 
smelling heavenly.


I  want to welcome and  thankyou all the new followers, it makes me happy, that you enjoy
visiting and sometimes commenting ,here on my blog.

And then I wish you all a beautiful friday and week-end,
I hope it will be filled with joy and happiness.

HUGS AND LOVE

FRIENDS ARE THE BEST MEDICINE

I HAVE PROBABLY SAID THIS BEFORE, BUT I HAD NEVER IMAGINED ALL THE LOVE AND KINDNESS, THAT I WOULD BE MET WITH STARTING BLOGGING!!

My dear friend Yvonne from    Yitte  read on my blog,that I was not feeling well, and wanted to cheer me up, and send off to me the most stunning gifts.

I simply love this beautiful journal cover, she made just for me.The fabrics are wonderful and there are so many lovely details, like my name embroidered .the colour pensils in holder,the sweet mopp buttons in their own frame, and lovely ruffel around the front and bag.



See isen`t it beautifully done!


And I love the spine decorated with buttons and ribbon.


And this is the inside of the cover  with the sweetest card tucked inside.



But that was not enough, also I found this gorgeous collage in the other packet.
it is so very beautiful, so wonderfully textural, and filled with little pearls embroidered onto it.
I wish you could see the lower part better, it is  very thin ,and created with only lots of yarn pieces sewn together -so very beautiful,

I love the colours of spring dear Yvonne used and the piece of nature in the corner.

See the many wonderful layers, and sweet text -the laces and bright colours.

'
On each packet dear Yvonne had maschine embroidered a tag-this one is filled with lovely lavender
is so beautiful and smells heavenly.


And this is so sweet with the bird bringing the key to Paris.


My very sweet and dear friend, you truly made me feel so much cherished and happy when I opened up all this beauty you made for me.
I can never thank you   enough for the joy you brought me Yvonne- thankyou from my heart ,it is a daily pleasure seing the collage on my wall, and the notebook on my table .

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

I would have shown you another most beautiful gift my dear  LIZ  send me from France- ,but thought it should have its own post, so you will have to wait with that , my sweet friends

For now I wish you all the most beautiful and perfect wednesday.
Here it is grey sky but whom knows......maybe the sun will show up later :-)

I send you all hugs and love
Dorthe

I think many of you have folloved Patty`s  Magpie`s Nest, where she so lovingly have shared the most beautiful photoes from her and her husbonds tour to visit Old  San  Juan cemetary.
I surely did and have saved many of their gorgeous photoes, -thankyou my dear Patty.



This is one of my favorites , that I transferred unto fabric and used in this collage.


I love her grey tones and went for colours in white ,grey,black,and soft blue.
I also used my Tim Holz die cut for the wing- I`m sometimes so lucky to be able to find die cuts in danish scrap shops!


Dear Patty I`m thankful for all your so beautiful pictures posted over several weeks for us to use in our art work- thankyou so very much  for your kindnes, I love visiting your blog.
*****************

Thankyou also to my new followers, It means a lot to me that you are out there,-and visiting me now and then.  Some of you do not leave any link , so I`m sorry I can not visit you back.

It is already friday evening, and I`m off to a cup of tea with my husbond, I wish you all a wonderful week-end and hope you are feeling happy and having a lovely evening.
