filled with gorgeous gifts from dear friends !!
This most beautiful angel I recieved from my very dear BETTINA,
I love it so much ,with her beautiful handmade flower

and look at that wonderful star she made of Frienly Plastic ,isen`t it fantastic!
and the most lovely cross added on the star doily !

Thank you dearest friend ,she is so sweet and special to me Bettina .

From my dearest NELLIE look at this wonderful christmas package !

Inside was this amazing handmade bauble,that Nellie painted ,
with the 3 crosses from Golgata .
and the sweetest bag with her little funny angel.
I love Nellies art, and this ornament is so wonderful.

I also love the verse written by Longfellow .
Dear Nellie thank you do very much ,you are such a dear and long time friend ,
to me- and I tresure you so very much!

This amazing canvas was a totally surprice packet from dear   MARTINA  
isen`t it fantastic. She creates the most gorgeous work with the paste on stencil, I am so in awe over this
wonderful hanger .
And see how she incorporates leaves and flowers and makes them look as a part of the whole.

Here you can better se the beautiful stenciled work, and the sweet angel on top.
Danke meine liebe freund , du hasst mir eine grosse freude gemacht Martina, I`m happy we
have become closer friends this year.

Another totally surprice came from dear Katherine Wolak,
I was so  exited to see her sweet little package with lovely bling, and look !!

This salt shaker,beautifully decorated and with the tiniest christmas tree
inside. Isen`t it the most lovely ornament for my tree!!
Thank you dear Katherine, this was so sweet and kind of you- xoxo.

The last,--but certainly not least presents I want to show you
today, came from another dear friend NANCY.
She totally spoiled me with her beautiful and gorgeous creations.

This heart in white felted wool, is the most wonderful hanger, so gorgeous with
hand embroidered pearls and beautiful laces. And the image is so adorable.
Look at the sweet details.

Dear Nancy also send me this little bag ,also in wool and with the 
lovely image and buttons and laces , -it will be filled with little sewing notions !!

Also she dearly made this amazing tag ,that is so wonderfully christmassy.
I love the big bow, and the bling.
Sweet Nancy, thank you so very much dear friend, you also
totally spoiled me , and I treasure your art so much.

I feel so blessed all year round, having such fantastic friends 
from around the world, that is the biggest gift!!!

I send everyone much love and hugs

Det er flotte gaver, du har modtaget.
God jul til dig og familien.

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Hallo Süße, nochmals vielen Dank für Deine schöne Weihnachtskarte. Ich hatte so gute Vorsätze, Karten zu verschicken, aber dann hatte ich keine guten Ideen. Als ich Deine Karte bekam, habe ich mich nochmal dran gesetzt und wollte wenigstens für Dich eine machen, aber als sie fertig war, hat sie mir nicht so richtig gefallen und dann wollte ich sie Dir nicht schicken. Ich habe aber Ideen für Frühjahrskarten, dann bekommst Du lieber so eine.
Wir werden uns an Weihnachten etwas Schönes kochen. Wenn wir eine Gans bekommen, dann gibt es die, wenn nicht, wird es ein Truthahn. Im Wohnzimmer und vor der Haustür habe ich geschmückt, im Studio in diesem Jahr nicht. Bei mir ist die Weihnachtsstimmung irgendwie schon wieder rum. Für mich könnte es schon Januar sein, aber das ist ja auch nicht mehr lange hin.
Liebste Dorthe, ich wünsche Dir ein ganz tolles Weihnachtsfest mit Deiner Familie. Es ist prima, dass Ihr alle zusammen feiern könnt und ich wünsche Euch ganz viel Spaß an den Feiertagen.
Allerliebste Weihnachtsgrüße und big hugs to you, sweet friend,
Deine Julia
