I AM SO TOUCHED BY BLOG FRIENDS !

I have known dear  TERRI for some years now, we have commented on each others 
blogs, and once I won a fantastic giveaway from this sweet woman.
Some weeks ago, I once again was touched so very much
by the kindness from this lovely friend.


I recieved , just like that,-a gorgeous packet from Terri, 
with beautifully wrapped sweetnesses of all kinds.


AND THIS amazing and so beautiful wristcuf that Terri made for me!
I was in love at first sight, with this wonderful jewelry -please click the photo 
to see all the beautiful stones,and crystals- it fits me perfectly, and
is one of my favorite colours: the colour of the Sea.
Thankyou my dear friend, I am so touched by your beautiful gift,-and
kind heart.


And if you look through the photoes you can see that Terri in every way
had made a Sea  theme, in the things she send me.


Beautiful seambindings , wonderful handmade papers,
and a roll filled with the most gorgeous strips of velvet and silken fabrics.
There was also a lovely inkpad in the turquise sea colour.


And here so lovely packed ,seambinding and a stamp,
shown below, -wrapped so sweetly with the feather ,I believe also 
found on the shore.


Dear Terri wrote me that she found the shells in Canada,
when having a vacation there, and
brought them back home to wrap and send some to me!!!


Isen`t it the sweetest thought! You can see  the shells and 
a wonderful collection of buttons ,wrappen in turquise tulle, both.
And have you seen the old papers that I love and the yummy teabags,
she also send me :-)

lovely collections yet---as I so love to watch them in their seablue tulle.


The beautiful tag Terri had already made for christmas , for me,
it is so gorgeous  !
Thankyou from my heart dear Terri, you have made me very happy with all this
beauty, and  most of all by the act of wanting to do it.

VINTAGE STYLE COLLAGE

Another week have gone, and already it is saturday again.
I created this collaged hanger for a friend, and hope it will soon
arrive at her doorstep.


The wonderful image is from http://www.digitalcollagesheets.com that I fell
in love with when seing dear  NANCY  from http://sugarlumpstudios.com/
using them in a beautiful creation.


I used different pieces,  like old laces, both handmade 
and machine made- papers- the top of the flower was 
attatched a gift from a dear friend. The sisters are transferred to cloth.


The beautiful nature heart, is actually  seaweed of a kind, having these lovely
endings to it- isen`t nature amazing! 


Like " my " Baltic sea this week ,where we had a huge storm,
with waves very high-my fhoto does not show it really, but it 
was a fantastic sight- Today the sun shines beautifully, but they
already again have "promised" us a huge snowstore the coming dayes!
I know many of you are screaming for spring,too...
lets hope together it will soon be here.

Welcome to new followers, I am happy to see you arrive,and 
follow me, and try to get around to say hello.

Sending you all precious friends much
love and hugs.
Dorthe

THE MOST WONDERFUL SWAP WITH MY DEAR FRIEND MARIE!

Some time before christmas my dear sweet friend MARIE from Lost Bird Studio, and I 
desided to wait till after christmas with our gifts for each other, and
therefore they became a spring-swap.

You can visit Marie, to see what I created for her !!!

This beautiful giftbag was what I found when opening
the packet from Marie- Isen`t it gorgeous,with the lovely
charms ! The D ,for Dorthe and the key, that she so lovely altered.


And inside...Oh sorry I jumped to open the gifts,so no photoes of the 
adorable wrappings.- but look at this sweetest charm, with my Mathilde
on one side - Marie asked for a photo and this one fitted perfectly inside.


The other side shows Marie`s wonderful mini collage,
. I so love it  and the heart you added . And it is around my neck  :-)


And oh my heart skipped when I found this gorgeous wristcuf ,- I have alwayes wanted
a charm wristcuf and this is the most beautiful one, I could ever wish for.
See the soldered charm, that Marie dearly made for me, and all the 
sweet french items attached,-I am so in love with this ,dear friend.


As if this wasen`t enough Marie also spoiled me with  a lovely tag, and the paper
spool with wonderful seambinding, and the brooch.


Some lovely napkins,old numbers,another brooch ,and ....


these wonderful embossing  folders -see how sweet there is a little charm on everything-


I am so thankful for all your gorgeous gifts to me, my dear Marie-
and I feel blessed with your friendship, thankyou from my heart for everything!


Today the weather have been so beautiful, and I had to take a walk to the beach,
where I found a lot of swans, on the quiet sea, they were unfortunately not
real near me, but I think you can see, and feel the lovely flat sea, and
them enjoying swimming in the sun.


Thankyou to all new followers, you are very appreciated and welcome-
And thank`s to all that visits my blog,-you are such sweet friends.

Love and hugs,
Dorthe
