BEAUTIFUL BIRTHDAY GIFTS AND A GOLDEN MERMAID!


Last week, I recieved another wonderful, and so lovely birthday
gift from a very dear friend  LYNNE  , from  ADORN.

See here how she so lovely packed her gift into the most wonderful
piece of cheesecloth ,she dyed herself-I love those tones Lynne
makes herself.
And her adorable tag.



And outside another packet was this so beautiful other tag.
I love the images Lynne used, and the wonderful layers she added with laces and papers.


And this was the package!! filled with beautiful lovely laces,
and on top the most amazing brooch, she made herself
stamping lovely Portia, and adding her to laces with pearls.


Isern`t it the most lovely brooch? It fits perfectly many things in my wardrobe,
and I love it so much.


Here more of Lynne`s dyed laces and old beautiful pieces.


Maybe you wondered what was inside the great cheececloth packet!!
This sweetest wonderful bird feeder.
See the little bird so cosy in her nest of papers, and feathers,
and the house beautifully dresssed in laces and lovely music paper.


Here you see it on a pedestal in my window,where it rests now.
Thankyou my dear wonderful friend, from my heart.
I love all you so dearly created for me, Lynne, and am thankful
for our friendship.


I also wanted to show you one of the newest mermaids,whom visited me from
the golden sea, just after sunset!


You can see the sun still shines apon her face :-)


Thankyou for visiting me all dear friends, I`m so happy for all your comments, and
sweet concern for me, and my eyes.

A PRIVATE SWAP WITH KIMBERLY


Last year I found a blog : ART JOY STUFF   

And a new friend Kimberly.

I at once loved what she created and sells in her Etsy shop

And have purchased several beautiful things.
So when Kimberly sweetly asked, if we should swap,I was thrilled!


Look at the lovely tag she made me! It shimmers
so beautifully.


This is the BEAUTIFUL heart I got,
See how lovely all fits together, with the wonderful
image and the gorgeous old bits and pieces ,Kimberly
always uses in her lovely art.
I love it !


She added the most sweet little tags  for me also ,
as a birthday gift -so very kind and loving of her.
I love them and their tinynes ( 5*5 cm)
and see the number 7 round tag-also so 
beautifully shimmering.
I guess you all know I love shimmer :-)


I had difficulties taking a good photo of Kimberly`s other birthday 
gift to me...but if you click my photoes you can see them better.
Isen`t it the dearest wonderful little porcelain doll swepped in lovely thin
old lace-and so wonderfully decorated with the old watch face,
and beautiful buttom

Dear Kimberly,-Thankyou  so much , you made me very
happy,with your beautiful gifts.


This is the heart I made for her, she had asked for something with a bit of
driftwood,so I added a few wonderful pieces,to this
natures heart.


And wrote my thankyou for the swap on the bach of this card.


Thankyou again dear Kimberly.

As we can`t fence in all the garden I am now covering the most beautiful ones of them with a netting every evening, and that helped :-)
and gave me (among others) this very beautiful rose.


My eyes are a bit better, and if all goes well ,the doctor will remove the draths tomorrow-
