Some weeks ago Dear Dawn  giftet me with a digi-sheet of her lovely new found herbarium, with long
ago dried flovers.--And today I made this first driftwood collage with one of the beautifull items.

I think it is fantastic that they preserved so well, in so many years. I made a copy on fabric,found some beautifull nature elements, and a little rusty  pieces and laces.
If you wants to buy the whole sheet from Dawn ,just click her name-it will take you there.20 wonderfull  different ones, is in the sheet. Thanks again sweetie, I so love them.

And then to my latest recieved presents.
Sweet dear Liz ,Lululiz in Lalaland-- asked me directly when was my birthday, and thats why the date came on my blog,
Only I answered her very late,-could`nt imagine she would do other than tell me :happy birthday, which would have made me so happy.
But the so dear lady ,had other things in mind, I found out.
See ,this sweet packed gift,

Inside a collection of wonderfull heavy  weaved fabric
beautifull trim,lace,ribbon,-old wonderfull tags
buttons,collections tags, and a sweet cake-form

wonderfull laces on  wood pegs
and the most beautifull little jug,so lovely with the lilac flowers.
and see the wonderfull tag, Liz made me.
I feel so blessed dear ,what a sweet and giving friend you are.
Thanks from my heart for all this goodies,can`t wait to use them.
Big kiss to you...
This beautifull little heart I recieved from Jillayne,A Fine Seam -- a for me new blogger, that makes the most wonderfull patchwork.  I have visited her beautifull blog, -and this sweet lady ,wanted to send me her sweet hand-sewed heart, just because she is a so lovely person.
It is just wonderfully made,-Thanks so very much dear Jillayne- I love it.

Also had to show you that I recieved this gorgeus book from my dear soulmate Solvejg
and this great packet with handmade paper,paperclayes, and a stamp sheet
from Bente, a danish friend living in Australia.
Dear Bente thanks so very much,you alwayes send me so wonderfull gifts.

Now, althoug I had many other kind of wonderfull gifts, this is the last post-PROMISE-
about birthday presents.
I so love all the goodies I recieved, and am so blown out, of the fantastic goodness, and love here,between bloggers, never experiensed anything like it.
Also thankyou so very much to everyone that wished me a happy day, it realy makes me feel blessed, and
so thankfull. --Love you all.
