Before getting ill, I recieved a wonderfull gift, from a very sweet, and kind woman,
 I had asked to by something speciel,-and Beth told me she would send it-just like that-as
a gift.
Not only did she send an old needlework magazine, but she added lots of
beautifull old ephemera--:

see the gorgeus tag she made-I so love it,

a bunch of old wallpaper sheets, so lovely, in those
pastel colors I like ,very much.

Old cards, and photoes-and funny" tickets"

This is a beautifull image from a magazine

and look at this beautifull cower from  a 1918 magazine.
There are so many gorgeus motives inside to use.
I`m very thankfull Beth ,for all the lovely things you send me,
If you visits BETH`S blog, you can find a "button" to click,for visiting her gorgeus shop,
to find more great stuff ,like this.

I`sent this a beautifull and sweet brooch,-I just love it-and saying that to
Sherry Anne  from Createology,--- the dear woman, send this lovely pretty thing to me,
for present, --how wonderfull is that ?
Thankyou dear Sherry- this was so very sweet and kind of you.

Beautifull tokens of blog-love ,from precius friends.
It is amazing to experience , and I think you all agree,we would not have met ,such kindness in any other place,than here.

Last week, I also recieved this gorgeus crone, That I bought from KARLA
from, Karla`s Cottage

I guessed it would fitt perfectly on the head, on this paper-clay doll,
I made some months ago, --and it did.
It is fantastic, a fairy crown with old bling, and velvet flowers, glitter and tulle.
I don`t need to tell you I love it!!!

Today was working day, and my dear friend Solvejg ,was here to help me.
I had an idea, to use those zinc pieces for charms, to hang on the christmas tree,
I also this year are decorating ,in the best hotel on the island.
I found image from Paper Whimsy, some faux leaves with gold,-heart blings,and crystals,
made a piece,and Solvejg made a bunch of those pieces,for me.

I think they looks real good!!

They are app. 5 inches both high and wide-
Thankyou so much for your wonderfull help, today, dear.

Ofcourse I also worked myself....
This is the fourths season`s little winter angel, I have made

This year, she has brown hair, and silver wings,-
like the other years, she is app.5 inches high.

Now, this must be more than enough for today,--I hope you had energi to follow me to here,---
if so, I wish you all a wonderfull sunday evening,-
Once more thankyou for the dear gifts, and sweet comments-
you are all the most wonderfull friends.

Love and hugs, Dorthe

What nice gifts you recieved. All those beautiful images that you will be able to use in your lovely creations. Karla's crown is really neat and it looks so nice on your doll. I am glad you had a day to spend with your friend creating Christmas ornaments, that was a great idea to use the zinc pieces. The Christmas Angel is lovely, I can just picture her peeking out from the branches of the Christmas Tree.

Hello Dorthe ~ what a beautiful post today! I love your zinc pieces. They will look wonderful on the hotel tree.

The new crown has found a perfect home on top of your sweet doll's head and the pink brooch is so lovely. I would like to try making one of those someday. But my very favorite part of this post is your wonderful winter angel ~ she is so beautiful in her warm winter coat!!

Viola said...

So schöne Sachen hast Du wieder bekommen, Du Liebe! Die Krone passt ganz toll zu Deiner Puppe! Und die Anhänger aus Zink sind auch wieder wunderschön! Super Idee! Dein Engel ist ebenfalls wieder ein Hingucker! :-)
