and as an amazing artist ,also created this gorgeous collage, here hanging on a cabinet standing in my 
kitchen area,where it fits perfect to the blue colour!
Thankyou my dear friend- I LOVE every thing -- ,it is not often I recieve dolls -or angels from others,so this gift is extra dear to me Yvonne.

GIFTS BETWEEN DEAR FRIENDS!


My most dear and lovely friend, Suzy, and I agreed in only sending each other a little flat 
before christmas gift, to bless each other with a heartfelt greeting before christmas.
I recieved this most stunning and amazing beautiful heart from    Suzy.

It is a gorgeous and very fabolous art work, and I
so love it.


Kept in white-beige-greenish and a little blue, it is the most wonderful heart.
I don`t know if you can see it, but Suzy used sari ribbons to create the heart with,which gives a fantastic effect. The images is such a piecefull picture of the angel and child, and I love the sweet tassels.
She used different laces, and all anchored on top of  sackcloth 
Suzy send me blessings with this beautiful piece, and I truly feel blessed  recieving this gift and even more your wonderful friendship, my dearest Suzy, 
Thankyou from my heart.


As Suzy now also have recieved my gift for her, I will  show it, too.
I made her this collage , telling a story of a child being born,
while the angels are joyful  watching. 


They are from an very old danish  magazine,
and I used the original piece- there are many different layers of paper and fabric and also a dried 
leaf  which together with the shining stars, shows Heaven and Erth and the magic that
happened ! 


It is also in neutral colours -white ,beige  and black with the little silver.

HEARTS MADE WITH LOVE FOR FRIENDS!


I love making hearts, and even more to  dear friends.On this first one, I tryed a new thing ,(that I read about on a wonderful blog-now forgot the name) . I bleached a live leaf, and ended up with this
fantastic result, harmonating wonderfully with the rusted old key, and sepia toned image!


Here I uses some dyed laces from my own stach, I know I used
acrylic watered down paint. This Paper Whimsy girl, is one
of my favorites.


Also have sewn some little cards this year. this one I added
embossed papers  made with a Tim Holz embossing folder.


And this one stamped with a stamp from I think was Bo Bunny,
I love this tiny sewed collage cards, and 
hope the recievers does ,too :-)
(sorry for the blurred photoes )


The sun shines on the snow filled island today, and it is a beautiful day.
I wish all of you out there ,-be it in summer or winter destinations,
a wonderful week filled with happy plannings for the coming christmas.

Many hugs and love

transferred with beautiful images,--here you see two of them.


And this is from today, -my garden totally decked with beautiful snow,-
and inside in the window, my Advents wreats -a tradition in Denmark,
it is made on a wooden pedestal, and an old metal wreath from the
fifties-wherein i layed moss,some white and silvery paper flowers,a bow ,

LOVING HELP FROM BLOGLAND FRIEND AND A WONDERFUL PURCHASE.

Not too long ago, when chatting with my very dear friend MARIE from LOST BIRD STUDIO
We talked about all the little things I was still to create, and the sweet  Marie, at
once thought on how she could help me. She told me she
had a portion of glittery snowflakes and stars, for me to 
make some quick and sweet ornaments from

And before I knew , the post handled me a packet with her name on.
Inside were this wonderful and big amount of lovely wintery glittering
pieces for me to create with.
But my dear friend also send me her most lovely tag,made with this beautiful image of 
Mother Mary, that she also so generously shared for all of us to use,- se her blog it is a freebi!.
CLICK her name and you will find it a few posts back.
Also she gifted me with her oh so beautiful and gorgeous fabric heart ,also decorated with the
wonderful image and lovely button and cross- 
I so love both your wonderful creations,-THANKYOU so very much my dear sweet friend,
and for your help and beautiful friendship, which means a lot to me.


Even longer ago I spotted this gorgeous black hat ,with some velvet
flowers on BETHS shop  http://bethleintz.typepad.com/
together with some older brass stensils
and just had to purchase them at once.


I love the hat, And I love what Beth so sweetly gifted me : the most beautiful collaged little old
book page ,with a page from an old list of something, and a photo of 4 
sweet kids  in a garden, in beautiful dresses-
adorned with  the lid from an
old box Clark`s mercerized crochet O.N.T. and lovely seam bindings.
It is gorgeous  my dear Beth- Thankyou so very much, you 
are alwayes so generous dear friend.
Isen`t it just wonderful, -my light is not the best, but if you click it you can see more details.


Please go visit Beth`s wonderful  ETSY Shops, - which adresses , you will
