Lisa is a very dear and long time friend of mine, and this wonderful friend ,send me a gorgeous birthday gift all the way from Texas !


This picture, made from nature finds, she collected in Colorado, and the sweetest old 
photo of a little girl. Isen`t it amazing,- I think it is a gorgeous gift , and even more 
special, knowing Lisa herself found it all , on her vacation.


And then this beautiful weaved purce, that Lisa made herself ,too-
and also had a workshop for,  -for  people lucky enough, to live near enough to attend.
I have so admired this gorgeous purces ,- and she so dearly 
gifted me one, and also the explanation and the frame to make one myself!!
Isen`t this lovely, with the attatched birdie image, and all the extra laces put inside !!


And then she even added a beautiful handfull of other laces too!!


Here you see the frame for weaving behind  a lovely old button card!
some gorgeous sparkling buttons ,  and a letter H...stencil.
Also a book cover frame, for me to create with and decorate , and 
behind it all you can see a gorgeous piece  of special transfer "paper" 


Close up of the sparkling buttons, the old button card -and the
H- stencil, and under here the sweetest  old photo of a darling girl,in such a lovely frame

So for now, I wish you a very happy weekend -

A FEW NEWER PIECES ,AND SUMMER ALMOST GONE!!!


I just wanted to show you two new pieces I created this summer,
that I have not yet shown!! 
The first is a tag, made with papers and a rolled flower.
I used both handmade paper and others !



And this is a flag that I called "wings of love"
I used a beautiful piece of  linen, on which I created a collaged heart, using
lots of different fabrics and laces. The ruler piece is paper .


I stamped a beautiful Tim Holz wing on a tea dyed piece and 
added it too ,to form the point, of the heart-
 and also added a handmade paper rolled flower. I love
the heart`s  tarnished look .


As written in my head line, we do not really have summer anymore here!
It has already started to look a bit like early autumn, with lots of winds,
rain and colder temperatures- and those most beautiful  popies from my 
garden, have long gone!!  I just thought they looked so gorgeous, and
wanted to show them to you!!


How are you around the world?? Still having lovely summer in some places I know,
others of you, just started early spring!!! 
But wether sun,rain or storm, I wish you beautiful hours enjoying your 
nature surroundings, and your creative dayes, dear friends.

Love and hugs,
Dorthe

BEAUTIFUL ECO DYING !!!


I have played a bit more with eco-dying and love those results I got this time.
I find it hard to get really good results, and think I have to study my
India Flint book some more.


This is a bath made with a weed from the roadside ,I will have to find out it`s name!!
It gives a most lovely old-rosa tone .


This is the same plant, but with more water in the pot, and with a dried plant!!
Love I can see the rusted key I packed inside the bunddle .


Watercolour paper damped in pot with leaves from Eucalyptus inside!!


And the same plant as the rosa toned laces ,here also damped  between
watercolour papers!!
*********************

Some time ago I was a very happy and lucky winner of this beautiful magazine,
which is not possible to purchase here in Denmark- so when

MICHELLE LOUISE  from : http://petitemichellelouise.blogspot.dk/

 announced I was the winner,- I jumped of joy , knowing she herself have
 2 pages showing her lovely decorations ,and creations, inside !!! 
And it is a very beautiful number !!
Thank you so much my dear friend , I love it !!!


Those wonderfully soft coloured french buttons, I purchased from my sweet LIZ : http://lululizinvintageland.blogspot.dk/


Aren`t they beautiful!!! and as the dear generous friend Liz is ,she
also send me little treasures to play with and a beautiful button tag.
It is so lovely,-thank you my dearest friend,- HUGS and KISS !!!


Now my sweet grandkids and my daughter left the island ,and returned home, 
to start school , first year for Mathilde,-seventh year for Gustav ...they becomes
so grown up,and they are dearly missed here,where the house became
so quiet and emthy-like after they left!!
So what better ,than start blogging again, helping me getting back in swing again!!

Thankyou for your alwayes loving comments, and understanding ,and for being 
such wonderful friends !!

Love and hugs to you all!!
