And this was what I did.I wanted to make an angle from one pattern-wings and all in one.
They are app. 28 cm-long and in different white and natural colores-

They are 198 ,-dkr. or  35 dollars

Yesterday my husbond and I made a trip to an antique shop.
And I couldn`t believe my eyes finding  4 old big books-with each collections from one year ,of two different magazines--some from 1909- and two others from 1886-1887

They are BIG ,and filled with beautiful images

I feel so lucky- and they were all together very cheap :)

I also found some lovely embroideries-like 4 of this kind-all different

Beautiful laces-and 3 with monograms

and this beautiful flower embroidered table cloth

Thise from my garten- I think though- are the most beautiful ones--

I hope you all have had a beautiful easter- --tomorrow it is a normal working day here in DK, again-
after the hollydayes. Well I have worked every day in my shop- and creating.

Wishing you a happy rest of the week, sweet friends and followers-
Love and hugs,-Dorthe

Love the angels Dorthe - what a great idea to make them all in one! I am sure it's much easier for you to get them made that way!
You found some real treasures at the antique store and I'm excited to see what you create. Lots of fun...
Have a happy rest of the week too Dorthe!

My Sweet Dorthe,
Your new angels are absolutely gorgeous - the one in the tree and the one in the slightly darker colours Oh so beautiful - it's as if they are ready to fly! The magazines and pictures are incredibly beautiful also (I think you might have to put them under lock and key - as I know someone who just might steel them LOL!). The linen also is just so special but as you say, the true winners are the ones growing in your garden - these are such exceptional colours all together giving you such Spring joy. Hope the sun is beginning to warm you and the wind is less strong.
Much love and many hugs,

Ha, and you tell me that it is soooo difficult to find treasures on your little island, those are FANTASTIC finds! I love love love the books of course, perhaps one day you may have a little bit of time to show us some more of the insides.
Oh your angels, Dorthe, they are so lovely! The pattern works very well.

Dorthe, the angels are wonderful! Your faces are always sooooo pretty! Very clever, sewing it all in one, wings and all! From the green behind them, it looks like spring has arrived in Denmark!
You are going to really enjoy those books! What treasures!
Have a happy day!
Blessings and love, Diane

What a lucky find you made at the antique store. The books look fantastic and I know you will create gorgeous things with those lovely images. The laces and embroideries are wonderful too. I'm glad you had such fun shopping.
Your garden flowers are so pretty. They show such lovely shades of pink and yellow.

What a find at the antique shop! You will get lots of use from them. You larger angels are quite lovely. I like the natural faded angel so much, like she is sprung up through the earth. xox Corrine

Sweet, Sweet angles....!
And how fortunate that you found those lovely old magazines on your latest trip to the Antique Shoppe.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and your compliments on my photo's. I do love to photograph..just don't always have the energy to do it.
My "props" are all over the house, going around "gathering" them up for a Still Life.. is a job for sure at my age.
But everyone seems to be pleased with the end result...glad you were too.


Emilie said...

Hej Dorthe.
Tak for dit besøg på min blog.
Ja, det lader da vist til, at vi har fundet noget af det samme på loppemarked. Hvor pudsigt!
Men det er også virkelig nogle gode fund, og jeg tror, jeg vil få meget glæde ud af det.

Rigtig god tirsdag til dig.
Varme hilsner herfra.

Unknown said...

What killer find Dorthe!! And the angels, simply sweet!!!

Terri Morse said...

Wow! What a find! You're going to have endless inspiration for your art. It's all about timing isn't it? You just never know what you'll find hidden away in some dusty corner! I guess that's what makes antiquing so much fun-it's the thrill of the hunt. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Terri

Diane said...

Beautiful angels Dorthe--you are my inspiration, and thank you so much for all of your kind words!

Today I'm going to all of the garage sales here--there are quite a few going on too! And looking at all of the treasures here makes me very excited to see what I can find.

P.S. Beautiful flowers!

Astridbears said...

Dear Dorthe,
beautiful Angels!! I love mix media and your blog is soo wonderful, very lovely! Come back again...

Vicki Boster said...

Dorthe- I am in love with your newest angel design- love the way the fabrics wrap around the bottom so prettily. The addition of the buttons and laces is perfect! You have created another beautiful treasure.

Your antique book find is truly a bit of luck- I can imagine that you were overjoyed- I love a great find- don't you! Oh and those laces are so very lovely too! No doubt you will use them in another great project.

You are right Dorthe- the most perfect treasure is your gorgeous flowers- the colors are magnificent.
