So I made 2 small mermaids, a white/grey one and a soft blue/turquise one

They will be added there today. 

I think they are cute

swimming in from "my"  Baltic sea

This is from my walk last week-end and what you see are roots under the asphalt-coming from the poplar`s  you see in my collage here.Can you immagine ---the little new plant,- have the power to break through the asphalt, and join the world-- so amazing.

And last, my dear friend Debra from Common Ground- is having a beautiful giveaway-

Wonderful mermaids! They are sure to swim away to a new home. Asphalt that is strong enough to build a road with and that little seedling manages to break through.

Dearest Dorthe
Those little mermaids have just arrived from your backyard to join you for a short time in Spring. How delightful and sweet they are and the colours so remeniscent of the sea.Gorgeous pieces of art - you are just so clever! And I love so very much your photos especially with that little plant breaking ground - Oh the power of nature - never to be underestimated!
Have a wonderful sleep and happy dreams sweet friend!
Big hugs and big love,

Your mermaids are delightful - hope they sell in a flash! And I too am shocked sometimes at the amazing places a plant or tree will pop up! Love the concrete pictures...Have a wonderful rest of the week - Tanya

Dear Dorthe,

Such sweet and pretty mermaids you have made.
Isn't that amazing the little poplar could make its way up through the asphalt. I know how strong the roots are of some plants, the wisteria has ruined some trellising in my garden.

Happy week

Wonderful mermaids Dorthe, such sweet faces. xox Corrine

Claudia said...

Your mermaids are beautiful, Dorthe.

You are so right - the power of that root to break through asphalt is amazing. I'm always impressed by plants that come up through cement or in a narrow crack between rocks!


Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Your mermaids are wondeful Dorthe! So sweet! But I reallly got excited over the stamping w/ bleach technique you shared. Thank you! I can't wait to try it!

A life force is often more powerful than a brutal force and that little tree certainly shows that perfectly!
I love your little mermaids, fresh in from the sea. They are delightful and what a clever, beautiful idea Dorthe.
They're perfect!

Hello sweet Dorothe,
Your mermaids are just wonderful. I just got your email and decided to come to your blog to see what you have been up to. You are so creative!
Thank you for asking about the storms. We made it through the torrent of tornados by Gods grace. We will need to get a new roof as we lost shingles. The neighborhood I live in had a very, very, close call, a few houses had giant trees fall on them, but nobody was hurt. Most were at work. We were without electricty for 6 days, and we managed fine with a propane camp stove.
I know I have not posted on my blog in a while, and I wonder if I am loosing interest in haveing it. I really do enjoy Flickr more. Life is so busy and it takes so much time, and gives me pressure to post. I will figure it all out one day. Lately, I spend spare time in the garden, working on the house projects, some crafts, taking care of husband. Life is good. I am so glad you wrote, and wish you a magical day.

Deine mermaids sind wieder super süß geworden, sweetie! Ich freue mich immer, wenn ich mir Deine hübsche Meerjungfrau anschaue. Sie hängt jetzt in meinem Studio.
Die Natur ist wirklich erstaunlich und man kann sich kaum vorstellen, wie so ein kleines Pflänzchen es schafft, durch den Asphalt zu kommen.
Heute ist es ganz wunderbar hier. Endlich steigen die Temperaturen etwas an, so dass man sich auch ohne Jacke oder Pullover draußen aufhalten kann.
Ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen restlichen Freitag :-). Am Wochenende maile ich Dir ausführlich.
Mange kys og knus und viele, liebste Grüße

Suz said...

Those mermaids make me smile! They have such personality. i am amazed at the poplar trees. I don't know why we don't see that too much here but I love it. I live the idea that wonderful nature is much more powerful than dumb old concrete! Of course the trees are why aren't they making their way through my pavement? Nothing that exciting here ;-)
Big hugs,

Paula said...

Hello sweetheart Dorthe, I left you a comment, but if must not have gone through, so I am leaving another one for you dear one! I love your precious mermaid dolls!!! Oh, they have the sweetest faces and are just beautiful!!! I love their bodies and the shells and glitter on them. The lace is lovely too sweetie. You are so creative my dear friend! They are very cute indeed and each one has its own lovely personality! I love how you said they are swimming in from "my" Baltic sea!

It is amazing to see the little plant emerging from the asphalt! Your walk looks lovely. I wish I could go on one with you!
