I LOVE TO WORK WITH DRIFTWOOD !

Finding beautiful pieces of driftwood on the beach ,alwayes makes my heart smile-
and I can`t help picking it up, bringing it home.
This was such a beautiful and flat piece,-just the right for one 
of my little nature collages.


The nature pieces are all from the beach.
My dear friend   Lynne   have alwayes inspired me with her lovely 
dyed fabrics, and after having recieved beautiful pieces from her, I thought 
I would try my hand on it also.
So all the sea green pieces are dyed in an acrylic water bath.
You can visit Lynne`s beautiful world by clicking her name.


As some of you know, I was gifted some money from my dear mother, for which I just had
to purchase one of  Sharons  fabolous necklaces.
Look how beautiful she packed it for me, with the milinery flowers,
and her wonderful madonna tag.


Here it is, a stunning piece from dear Sharon`s magical jewelry world.
I so love it my sweet friend.


But Sharon, not only packet my buy beautifully,she also dearly send
me this gorgeous wristcuff , so fantastic embroidered, and with pearls, in
such amaxing colours complementing the turquise silk.See the huge brooch 
used as button -I LOVE it  so much !


More wonderful gifts to use for projects to come,-


and  with the sweet card even two holy medaillons, 
which I not easily find here in Denmark, and therefore 
treasure very much.
Please click Sharon`s name on top of this page, to visit her wonderful blog
and find out about her shop,filled with gorgeous pieces.


Dearest Sharon, you made me very happy ,with those
amazing jewelry pieces and your sweet gifts,
Thank you sweetest heart.

Start of a new week!! 
Time to show a few new creations!

This is a card for a very dear friend, I so hope she will like it-
the little girl is my last purchased image, from Paper Whimsy-

A romantic lacy hearth in nature colours,which I love,
even I try now and then to add more colours to my creations,
 this is what I alwayes returns to .


Roses from the garden- isen`t it funny they are from the same bush?
They start as the soft orange ,and ends up white with pink dots- 
Nature is truly amazing!

MY BIRTHDAY IS STILL NOT OVER -


Even it is 3 weeks ago, I still have some wonderful gifts to show you,
but first I wanted you to see this beautiful  Elder berry tree.
The leaves and greens are totally dark wine red, almost black-
and the flower as sweet pink as you see it here.


But now to my gift from my dearest friend ROBIN  
whom alwayes sends such happy and colourful  gifts.
see the sweet dragon flyes.


And inside was  ROMA FEY ,the most wonderful sweet 
fairy, I am so taken with Robins dolls ,and as many of you knows,
I have quite a collection , but I goes on loving every single new
"person" she creates, and can never have too many.


Isen`t she  gorgeous, I love her hair and wings,
and her personality. I love her colours -could you imagine me kissing this little 
one??? Well I could do it as she sits here looking at me with her happy expression.


And then there was also another packet,
equal beautiful and colourful, just as the creator of them.


Inside I found this adorable top in the most beautiful 
soft pink, and attatched a sweet  brooch/ hanger.


Here it is hanging -in my little private computer room, where the light is not the best,
so the true colour is something in between the two photoes.
It is soft and so lovely.


And here the sweet "medaillon" 
Robin also gave me some wonderful cut-outs 


My dearest friend, you spoiled me as you alwayes do,
Thankyou from my heart for your amazing gifts, and for your 
wonderful friendship, which I appreciate so very much.

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

I hope you all have a beautiful day, my dear friends and followers
I send you 
HUGS 
AND
LOVE
