I alwayes gets smitten with all the wonderful Halloween creations

make a sweet witch myself!


She is dressed in real velvet ,and her shawl is a lovely piece of
 machine embroidered black fabric. She wears some witchy things in her hands,
and am app. 45 cm high.


I also wants to show you a beautiful packet I recieved from my lovely
friend Lynne  some long time ago..... I`m sorry it takes me that long,for the moment being, to blog 
about my gifts! I know I have more to show!!
Dear Lynne had created the most beautiful paper bag to hold
all the most lovely and delicate dyed pieces, for me.


Please click on the photo to see it more close up, it is so wonderful!
And so is the lovely cheececloth in most wonderful shades of pink-peach and light blue.


Here is more and many ribbons and laces too- also Lynne dyed some tags for me ---


and created this very beautiful one- which I adore.


Isen`t it all so beautiful. 
I alwayes admire that Lynne uses home dyed fabrics for her amazing creations,and love
her colour choises, just look at this bunch of loveliness.

Thankyou my dear sweet friend- it was so generous of you, and I 
will be happy to create with it all, after having admired it for a while first!


Friday I travel to Copenhagen to stay for the week-end, and then bring my two grandchildren 
with me home monday,- to grandpa and Bornholm.
They will visit us for the week, and I am so happy, to have them
here - to play, laugh and have fun!

There will not be much time, if any, for posting and visiting you my dear friends,
but I will be back again , eager to see all you have been
up to, while I am full time grandma :-)

In the meantime -take care and be happy-
Love and hugs, Dorthe

Collage using my new Stampsmith stamp!

Hello all, and happy weekend friends!

This collage in white / black, I made using a beautiful 
stamp from the Stampsmith `s  collection called Cleopatra and friends!

I know many of you already knows those wonderful stamps,
but if not just click the name, to see what is in the Stampsmith  shop!


I first saw this beautiful rubberstamp sheet over at my lovely
friend Lynne`S blog, where she creates the most beautiful 
collages ,cards and tags- and I was at once tempted to buy it.
Lynne kindly helped me contact Estelle from Stampsmith, and from then, there was not 
any hessitating in ordering.


I think she is a beauty,- miss Portia - and made her live between beautiful 
old and newer laces, and a little bling ,too.

I also wanted to show you some most beautiful dyed fabrics and laces
dear Lynne have send me, but my photoes have to be taken over again (very bad light on them)
- so you will have to wait a few dayes to see those gorgeous ,
and so lovely pieces from my dear friend.

How is your saturday ? I hope it is happy and blessed, and wishes you
a beautiful sunday, too-

Hugs and love ,
from Dorthe
