A wonderfull gift all the way from Australia

In Australia lives a danish (bornholmsk) woman--Bente Wright- that many years agowhen wisiting her sister---still living here on the island--- found out that I was -like her- making dolls- and therefore wanted to wisit me in my shop.Ofcourse we talked and exchanged adresses. And on my next birthday I recieved a beautifull doll from Bente. She lives in my bedroom, and have since recieved sisters almost every year from Bente to keep her compagni.And naturally there have been flying dolls the way back to Australia from here.

Here is the wonderfull fairy I found when opening the packet today.Look how beautifull she is made-the mirrow and all. Thankyou so very much Bente, she is wonderfull dear.

I took more pictures of this lovely fairy, but they were very blurry.

Another wonderfull gift I recieved the other day is two old books.It was again my dear friend Christoph from Køln-Germany (a collector of old books)that when visiting a flee-market here ,found these two treasures to me.the two text-pages comes from a book with collections of lots of different handwriting ,ready to be used in pictures.

This is also blurry, excuse me.

And then look here, -do you see what this is ? Old sledges and spools from a loom
the spools still with thread of gold and silk
This wonderfull gift Anette -the wife of Christoph- and dear friend brought me
from Germany. look at the wonder of all this.

Thankyou so much ,
Vielen dank beide , es is so schöne geschenke.

Wishing you all dear friends a wonderfull evening
xoxo ~Dorthe
