I struggled out of my house today, to go the 20 meters to my studio,in snow, as I wanted to spend some time in there.
My collage is made from mostly fabric, but also paper,and stamping,
I love the light blue color with the brown . The photo is not quite the right color ,as in real, but shows it a little darker.

And as promised in my last post I have some wonderfull buyes to show you, from a fleamarket
I visited when I was in Copenhagen 1 month ago.
Here some old and beautifull laces.
Buttens, watch, chrystals,a bunch of old train tickets, and some bling,bling.

A beautifull velvet rose

An old journal

An empty, but wonderfull old photo album

Another, very old, and full of wonderfull photoes

Just look at this leather bound heawy thing, with silver locket

A schoup, handwritten sermons

all inside this leather , and with the name of the minister
who wrote them.

Look at this so beautifull handwriting

Just to show the year of all this: 1911

Some handmade pinks , and in white paper doilies

Looks here ,a wonderfull old thing,
dirty but lovely,when clean I`m sure.
Can you immagine wearing something like that?

And last an old box of white buttons,Whom could get too much of those?

This post I guess have to end now, hope you are not tired of looking.
Thanks for all who made me happy ,with comments here, and on
my OWOH blog side.
Wishing you a great week-end all dear friends.
Hugs and Love

In America when we say old...we mean a couple of hundred years...when you say could be a couple of thousand or more :)! Thanks for taking me on your shopping trip...I am envious!

Your collage is glorious!

Hi Dorthe,
I love coming to visit your blog. You always have something wonderful to show us and today's pretties are amazing.
I sure wish I could have gone on that great shopping trip in Copenhaven with you, I would be the envy of everyone. The lace you found just takes my breath away.

Beautiful, gorgeous stuff.

Dear Dorthe your new collage is so lovely, love the colors, hvor hyggeligt at du har været i Herning som jo ikke er så langt fra hvor jeg bor, i år har jeg ikke været på messen (det er jeg ellers hvert år). De små tvillinger trives godt,men har ikke lige tid til at besøge dem for i denne weekend er jeg på kursus i silkebåndsbroderi, dejligt og hyggeligt. Nu skal jeg afsted, vi snakkes ved, kan du ha det godt.
Kærlig hilsen Anni

Dorthe....Must have had my head stuck in the sand until now...I was not aware of the extent of your collage talents.
So love what you do with your lace and fabric and "stuff" that you find at your Flea Markets.

I wish we had more Flea Markets around this area...on a regular basis.


Barbara Jean said...

What wonderful finds!

And your collage is beautiful. I so want to start doing some layered lace art.
I keep collecting, but have not tried it yet.
