Even it is forbitten for me,right now, to create anything else than dolls,I just have to
get papers and fabrick together in my hands,now and then.

And so I made this collage the other night, using the beautifull Paper Whimsy
image, old laces, small punched tags, and added a little purse,
on the old book cover.

Saturday I went to an antique show, where I was very lucky to find lots of
old fhotographs, and albums, for a  (for Denmark ) cheap money

See the little shoes and the red velvet album

an old box, also with red fabric inside and a mirror

and sooo many of those wonderfull  photoes.
I will scan some for you, dear friends.

This was the sky friday evening, have you ever seen something that beautifull, in
gold and pink?

Here the children are autumn free from school, this week-so my dear little family
will visit us in the end of the week- I can`t wait to see them-

Have the most wonderfull monday, all sweet friends-
the weather is fantastic,this morning,here --cold,crisp-and sunny.

Love and hugs

Hi Dorthe,
Fabric and paper in your hands equals instant beautiful art!! You create such beautiful collages and dolls....I would love to have half of your talent!


Hopemore Studio said...

Your finds are beautiful, there is a lot of potential in all your goodies especially that mirrored box with lace.

I'm glad to see you sneak away some time with your collage work. Sometimes it is just a necessity to do what we want to to do over what we have to do to stay grounded.

I'm so glad to read your family is coming to visit, I can tell it makes you very happy.

I love to see that you're mixing paper collage with your dolls- I think they enhance each other. Your red velvet album and cabinet cards are wonderful!

Oh Dorthe, you naughty girl, lol, playing when you should be working? I don't blame you at all, you have to every now and then, otherwise you get so fed up! I love the collage you made, the sweet image, the little tags, everything really.
You found some beautiful things at the antique fair, lovely new treasures. Don't work too hard, my dear, playing refreshes mind and body!
