What is friends all about ?

A friend is - among many other things-joy and happines shared,
gifts given and recieved- one soul in two boddies. The magic of
soul sisters is a wonderfull thing to experience.
That`s how I feel about Lisa from Tarnished and Tattered --. and
what can make a person more happy than recieving words, that ones
feelings are returned.
See here what she send me ,when recieving a pair of her wonderfull ballet-slippers.
A beautifull card, that turned around ,-revieled this handwritten "poem"

Together with this wonderfull token of friendship, Lisa had made me a
bookmark, showing ,the meaning of the words:--two sweet wemen,close to each other.

Lisa is not "only" a very dear and sweet friend, she is also a wonderfull artist,
and I`m in love with all she is doing.(you have to take a look at her blog)
See here ,-what could be more sweet, than a pair of the smallest ballet slippers,
I have seen---maybe 10-11 cm.long-- and they are beautifully altered.

look at the lace and silkband , the tiny old flowers, and the lovely fabric inside .
I love them , Lisa.
Thankyou so much for sending them to me, and for your so very dear and sweet gifts.

Another sweet friend I met last year, is Silke from Metamorphosis.
Silke and I are very different in doing our art, as you will see when visiting her.
She is a painter,on both canvas and on her own paper colage`es, that gets a wonderfull transparent look, they are wonderfull.
And I love her sweet painted faces.
This is a card I recieved from Silke with one of her
original paintings , and I just love it.
The photo don`t do the colors justice they are more in
blue and rosa tones, but I can`t get it right,sorry.

On the back Silke writes a poem by Anais Nin:
"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born"

It is so very true ,and beautifull said, and I totally agree
with Silke,----My world has become bigger too,after meeting her and her wonderfull paintings ,and sweet soul.
Thanks so much my dear friend.

I have met many,many other wonderfull women and artists,the last year of blogging
and some of them has become very close, -for that I`m thankfull,
---As I am for all and everyone visiting me here, and following my blog.
I am wishing you all a very happy friday

Good Morning Dorthe,
So sweet of you to recognize all your beautiful friends. We feel the same about you.
I adore Lisa, she is a very special person and her artistic abilities are limitless.
I do not know the other artist but I will be sure and check her blog.

Have a beautiful weekend.

Lisa is really a sweetie to add that wonderful poem and the lovely bookmark to that beautiful pair of ballet slippers! I love her work too!
I had sent you 2 e-mails yesterday, dear. The first one (regarding the doll hair etc.) came back this morning and I had sent it out again but I'm not sure if it went through this time?
Hugs and love,

Silke Powers said...

Oh, you sweet woman!! You made me all teary ... it is a special thing this friendship between women and I am finding that more and more in this world of creative blogging. As I am writing this, I am looking at your sweet angel, which hangs in our living room, close to the angel I received from Julie-Ann. That way I can see my angels all the time... Much love, Silke

Silke Powers said...

I forgot to say...I loved Lisa's gifts to you!! Those tiny ballet slippers are adorable!! Hugs, Silke

Thespa McLaughlin said...

Those little slippers are the cutest! Thanks for visiting me today. Have a happy day!

Lisa said...

Your kind words make me blush! People gravitate to you because you have a beautiful soul & it comes through in your amazing art. I am so blessed to have met you. Isn't it crazy that we live oceans apart & never would have met if not for these wonderful blogs. It has really enriched my life in so many ways.
And thank you for introducing Silke to us, her art is outstanding, I'm going to see more right now. Lisa

Dear Dorthe, Such a sweet post. I love Lisa's ballet slippers. Her art is amazing. This blogging world is so wonderful, I'm just so enjoying meeting so many lovely people in this way. We are connected by our art, but also by our hearts. I will go now and meet Silke. Thank you Dorthe!

Sorry, I could not find your email to reply to your message on Clearly Vintage. The fee is for purchasing high resolution images. Here is the info from the site. You may download low-resolution images directly from the web site for personal, research or study purposes for free. This includes classroom use and student projects. It does NOT include using images to populate online courses (even if password protected). For this type of use and any nonprofit or commercial publication (i.e. book, journal, magazine, newspaper, brochure, newsletter, annual report, etc.), CD-ROM, broadcast, website, exhibition, and promotional material you will need to contact Smithsonian Institution Libraries for the appropriate permissions and licenses.

So you can use them for personal projects. I think it would be ok to post the project just not the image.
