A new idea, ---and photoes from my house and shop

This is a  ATC like small thing, that just had to be done today,before closing up my shop....
The new in it  -for me anyway- is the bupple plastic,that I used between
the layers of fabric--it gives the piece a feeling of heaviness,and I like the look ,when adding a bit of paint over it.

Yesterday my dear friend Diane and her daughter Holly (click to see their wonderfull Etsy shop)
asked me to see where i`m living on this beautifull island,--So I took some photoes of my house, and shop,for you to see.
This is the yard, the windows on the right is my kitchen.

The  angel in front of the parkingplace, and the privat house in the right.

You can see how close the water is...

This is in front of my shop

Here a funny street sign,that my husbond had in birthday gift from our friend Matthias Masswig, a german friend  and artist visiting us every summer.
The sign over my shop

An old mail box, with a plant inside

The privat house and garden again

Here around the corner to show you the view to the sea again

I got the photoes mixed up, and blogger will not let me take them back,---so this is how it will stay for this time.
I hope you enjoyed the trip, and wishes all a happy evening-
also I welcome the newest followers, ---I`m now at my 200-----
I`m so happy to meet everyone of you, thanks to you all to visit me here, it means a lot to me.
I will soon celebrate the 200 followers with a little sweet giveaway!!!!!

Lots og hugs, and love

What a wonderful home, garden and view of the sea you have. It all looks so welcoming and homey. Love the angels and the plant in the vintage mailbox. Do you ever have problems living that close to the sea? Or is your elevated enough so there is no problems?

Yitte said...

What a beautiful place you are living, so much space around you. Love it. Thank you for showing us. You atc is wonderful.

sharon said...

Dorthe! Wow! I am so jealous..hehe!! My heart melts looking at your beautiful pictures, of the home by the sea! I am happy for you! Soak some in for me!

Lululiz said...

Oh Dorthe, you live in such a charming home, it is adorable. You are so lucky to have your shop under the same roof. It must be quite scary though in the winter to live that close to the sea. But I am sure when you are snuggled up inside ( with a roaring open fire? ) and all nice and cosy, then the stormy sea must be quite wonderful to listen to.

marie said...

What a wonderful setting to be creative in! I would never get anything done...I'd be too busy gazing at the sea.
I love your angel...she looks perfectly content to be standing there watching over you and your home. Also...the plant in the mailbox is so cute!!

Hi Dorthe!
Gosh, I have been missing you and a few of your posts. I am trying to get around to see everyone and I'm so glad that I finally made my way over here.
First of all, I love your art piece, it's so pretty.

I am so glad that you are showing us where you live and your surroundings. It looks so beautiful there and to live in a cottage by the sea would make me happy.

Thanks for sharing. You are the sweetest.

It is charming Dorthe - your little house and studio by the sea! You are so very lucky to have the sea at your doorstep - it must be amazing on windy days. And your little card is so lovely too - what a good idea to use teh bubble wrap. Very clever you are, Dorthe!

My Creative House said...

Beautiful photos of your home, hvor ser der skønt og hyggeligt ud søde, sikke en udsigt at se på hver dag, så sjældent jeg ser havet da jeg bor midt inde i landet, skøn skøn engel du har udenfor står hun ude i alt slags vejr ? sjov ide med bobbel plastikken, det er godt ud, kun du ha en god og kreativ dag (se nu at få lavet noget til din shop, og ikke kun gaver). Vi snakkes ved.
Kærligt knus Anni

Look at all these comments! Everyone loves you so much & it's such a treat to see your cottage by the sea. You country is so beautiful. American is wonderful, don't get me wrong but it's so ..........American! LOL Your cottage is a dream. I love your Angel standing guard in the entry. Someday I promise I am coming to visit & I can't wait to see the little Den LiLle Lade sign in person!!
BTW, love the new technique too.

Terri Kahrs said...

Dorthe, I love your ATC! Using the bubble wrap inside of the fabric was such a creative idea. Fantastic!

Thank you, thank you for opening your "home" to us! It's beautiful! If I were to lucky enough to live so close the the sea, I'd never accomplish anything!!! Thank you for a great tour. Hugs, Terri xoxo

Dorthe, thank you for posting these for Holly and I to see after she visited Bornholm online and wondered about what your house might look like.

It's wonderful! SO Danish! The stone courtyard and your tile roof and your leaded windows...oh my! Quaint!

How close are you to the edge of the sea? Are you up high from the beach or is your house often sprayed by the waves? I can only imagine the fierceness of the storms you must experience in the winter, but your walls look good and solid! The sound of storms must be amazing!

I loved the peek at where you live! So sorry I didn't get here sooner. Yesterday took up some time with some etsy problems with a vendor and work!

Now...if I could only knock on your door and visit!

Blessings, dear friend! :-)

Holly Knott said...

Dorothy, thanks for sharing photos of your home with us! It looks like something out of a fairy tale story book. You must experience a lot of wild weather being that close to the sea.

I have finally had a chance to visit and see your beautiful home and shop. Wow, I love now seeing where you live. How wonderful to have a shop so close to your home. And to see the ocean so near by. Just lovely and so European. Now when I think of you I can picture right where you are. Now for the inside :)
