Here I am again-

I took my two dear grandchildren, back home to mom and dad yesterday, and am ,now home again.I miss them here,and all the fun, and love we have together, -but have to admit it is good to have my "own life "back, too.It would be so much easyer if we lived closer to each other!!!!!!

Since last, I have recieved so many wonderfull birthday gifts,from blogging friends, and
others, that I so wants to show you.
As there are many I will post them in the order I recieved them from my postman.

The first one is the most fantastic, and beautifull gifts from one of  my dearest friends :

This is what appered when I opened the package-Whish was a very big surprice-
---a beautifll hand-sewed bag   -Don`t know if it shows, but the fabric ,looks like the most fragile old lace--
and Sweet dear Julia also used old fantastic beautifull lace to decorate with-

Not only outside,-but also inside,where also was made small
pockets, all way round, to hold all the precius little wonders, Julia tucket inside for me.

This is a  book,from 1894,- holding a "word"  Pour Chaque Jour--for every day,
in the year, for one to read,the words of the bible.-It is a treasure,to keep-not to cut!!!
I have to make copies :)
Dear Julia, made wonderfull small packages ,in small bags, and inside one of them was this,
so lovely old brooch,-it is so beautifull, sweet.

In another one this dear lady tucked, her handsoldered charm,
holding a piece of old beauty,-I`m going to wear this, as it is perfect in size for jewelry.
I love it`s  fragile look.
In 3 other pockets I found those wonderfull old german doll heads,
They are not easy to find here, so I`m very gratefull for them, and while you are here, see the
great fabric, that was tucked inside the middle of the"purse"/ bag.
Now ,this I never saw before, -and it is such sweet and special gift,--I love them--
two old cubber scabelones,with my initials-se the bag Julia made to protect them in....

Also this is so beautifull and very wonderfull,-an old  woodcut ,Julia
bought for me. Isn`t she the sweetest woman..

It was hidden in another handmade bag,together with those  4
old cards ,with beautifull wemenn.
There were also a bag with sweet white buttons, and another with Crystals inside,-

The last photo today is of the card Julia made for me, --it  pictures 3 sisters, -And I know Julia made this,
for me,knowing I lost one sister- 2 years ago- to cancer---
It is a very special card,-beautifull, and will forever be a treasure for me, in remembering, times we had together,all 3 of us....-Julia you realy touched my heart with your gorgeus gifts , and with the meaning of this card. Also thanks, dearest for what you wrote to me, it means so very much.

Liebe, und kys-og knus from me to you, dear friend.
It is late ,and I think this is photoes enough for one day,-
I will be back tomorrow, with more lovely gifts.

I will also try to get back, to all of you, to se what I missed the last week...

Hugs, and love from me,to you.

Hi Dorthe!
I'm so glad that you are back. I know that you will miss your little ones and I hope you get to see them again soon.
I just love your wonderful gifts. That little bag is magical with all the little inside pockets holding such lovely treasures.

That's very sweet to remember your precious sister and I know that you will treasure her endearing gift.

I'm sure you are anxious to start creating some beautiful things to show us and we are looking forward to it.

Such fun and inspiring gifts- glad you had a good visit with the grandkids- I understand what you mean about it's fun to visit, but nice to be home.

Oh my friend, I wish I'd know it was your birthday! Happy belated birthday. Is that why the family was visiting last week? I am not very good about things like this. Julia sent you a wonderful bag of treasures. She really knows how to pack a box with goodies! I'm still loving all of my treats. That punched brass with your initials is really cool. I know you'll make some beautiful art with it all. Lisa

Dorthe - you must be exhausted - I just know that you are a wonderful and beloved grandma. What do your sweet grandchildren call you? It is wonderful to spend that time with the babes - but yes - we do like our own time don't we! Guess that is the great thing about having grand children!

Oh my dear Dorthe - your postman has been so busy bringing you those wonderful treasures! You are so lucky and so loved - that alone should be a wonderful birthday blessing for you!

We havemissed you while you were busy with the babes - so glad to have you back. Soon - I am going to have to take a little blog break also - so much to do this summer!
