Beautiful blue mermaid -(can I say that myself? )but I kind of love her blue dress.
She is almost 50 cm. high ,so not one of the sma´ll ones.

Doesn`t she look happy that summer is here ?

Also want to show you, this beautiful card I recieved from Lynne from ADORN
So sweet of her to send this wonderful  art piece to me.

Lynne also added a piece of her own lovely dyed lace
See the sweet note she wrote me.Thankyou so very much, dear Lynne.
If you don`t know Lynnes blog, you will have to take a look, she makes the most gorgeus
cards,and tags- and much more.Just clik the blog name,to take you there.

And lastly a few more photoes of the beautiful things I got from my dear Paula.
isen`t the strawberry wonderfully romantic,and beautiful made?

An look at all thise little goodies the sweet girl added,I love the little pink flowers,

And here is mini Paula saying hello in her sweet little chair with foot stool-tthat Solvejg, made me many years ago, seems like built for her.If you click the photo you can see ,she also came with her own dear little pitcher, so cute, and lovely.
My dearest sweet Paula, thanks once more, I enjoy your wonderful gifts every day, my precius friend.

I hope you all will have a lovely wednesday, my dear blogging friends, and followers, we had lots of rain this night, and it cooled down a bit, from the very hot tuesday we had yesterday- the garden loved the rain :)

Love and hugs, to you all

Dearest Dorthe
Your Summer mermaid is just delicious!
How stunning she looks all dressed in the most beautiful shade of blue sheer
fabrics and such a gorgeous expression on her face! What a lovely card from Lyn and Paula's gifts are really lovely - all of those sewing bits and pieces, buttons etc. You will so enjoy using them.
I bet your garden is looking so refreshed after that rain from above.
Much love and big hugs to you my dear friend from across the seas and far away!
