For the coming week- my dear Mathilde (granddaughter) will be here with us-all on her own...
So if you don`t hear much from me ,well you know why :)

But first I want to show you 2  wonderfull packets that arrived this week.
The first one arrived  wednesday, fully unexpected!
So ,when the post handled me the packet and I read-from:  Diane
I thought :WHAT  can that be ?

Look at the beautifull packet and tag- and opening the tissue paper , I could not believ the beauty in front of me!  Dearest Diane send this LOVELY heart ,to me, -to tell me, she had thought about me.
Have you seen such a lovely,lovely heart- the colors are so soft, and all so romantic.

See all the beauty her hands can do, isn`t it fantastic? see the little bee flying into the rose garten!
It is a lavender pincussion-but there will never be a pin inside I promise you!

And look at the wonderfull embroidery , everywhere there is a seam- I LOVE IT-
dear sweet Diane-thankyou my wonderfull friend- with love from me .

And then I recieved my first OWOH win- from Yvonne - Yitte   . I have alwayes admired everything Yvonne creates, I think we first met in a Ning-group ,and I have followed her since then!
I knew I had won a wonderfull book from her, but opening the packet up, I saw this ,sweet and beautifull little bag-- oh my... and the book was inside !
I love everything-- Paris-- and all this wonders from dear Yvonne is sooooo French !

See , yes my name inside, so sweetly made!

And here is the book

My colors are not real, it is much more dark- and more beautifull in the tones, than here- I`m sorry!

This is when opening up , I tell you it is a wonderfull feeling ,sitting with this in my hands, and opening up for all the gorgeus ,heavy layered and embroidered pages-so very beautifull!

Here a little pocket, with two sweet tags

and a loving message from dear Yvonne.

Last page, and the Paris adventure ends for this time- I love the wonderfull fabric`s this fantastic artist have used through out the book, just makes it real "Paris"

And see, what this sweet friend added- the most darling : Grandmother- collage!

Also , so beautifull, and full of different old laces, and wonderfull paperwork.

3 little birds brought me all this beauty, all this joy, all the way from The Netherlands.
Thankyou dear Yvonne, it is a fantastic win, ---I love it--- and I will treasure it forever, sweet friend.

Thankyou for today-- I have one more OWOH gift to show- but it have to wait a bit :)
I guess this is photoes enough for today.
Thank you to all dear friends, whom have been writing me those last all know whom you are!!
It helped me a lot hearing from you.
I hope there will be moments to visit this coming week- but else I will return in 8 dayes, for wonderfull news on your blogs.

Much love- and a happy week-end all
from Dorthe
