Tiny collages, and a nymph---

Two very small collages, made yesterday, maybe 20*12 cm.,both
hanging in a piece of driftwood

I also made 6 small nymphs,-here is one of them, they are app. 15 cm high

Few dayes ago I recieved a wonderfull package, from a dear friend of mine-JYTTE-
who had collected several different old and wonderfull things, for me to use in my
creating. I contained old newspapers, photoes, porcelain from electric stuff, photo negatives,

Beautifull old envelopes, with wonderfull patterned inside, wooden hearts, tiny tags,
a bottle, dollshoe, and.................
So wonderfull to open a packet full of new inspirational creating things. Thanks so very much Jytte.
At long last we have kind of a spring weather here!-well it is still cold, not much coming up in my garden---
but not as cold as last week, and the sun shined all day, -so lovely.
Hope you are all having a wonderfull day.
Love and hugs,Dorthe

Hallo, liebe Dorthe, Deine beiden Collagen sind fantastisch! Ein wunderschöner Mix aus Stoffen und Spitzen. Die Treibholzstücke als Halter gefallen mir auch sehr gut!
Die Nymphe ist putzig mit ihren Perlen an gewissen Stellen ;-)!
Da hast Du ja ein tolles Paket mit Schätzen bekommen! Das kannst Du sicher alles gut verwenden.
Gestern war es richtig schön auf dem Flohmarkt und ich habe auch ein paar nette Sachen gefunden :-). Fotos mache ich in den nächsten Tagen noch.
Ich wünsche Dir einen wunderschönen Abend und eine gute Nacht!
Ganz liebe Grüße, kys og knus,

Good Morning Dorthe,

Your little drift wood collages are beautiful, I love the small size.

I went to a flea market last Sunday and found myself drawn to the beautiful old fabric, laces trims and buttons... I think you are inspiring me!

Dorthe, they're lovely. All of the textures of the fabrics and lace look terrific next to the driftwood.

Your little nymph is sooo cute!
