This lovely seam binding rolled around sweet tags,
I BOUGHT  from Nancy  of Sugar Lump Studios- I love and admire Nancy`s art, and have enjoyed one of her wonderful classes on the net,too.
Nancy is a very sweet friend.

And then see this beautiful hanger she gifted me with , together with my buy.Isen`t it wonderful, and turning it over...

there was this other dear image. It is to be opened,to change images, which I will never do, as this is a dear gift for me. Thankyou so very much, dearest Nancy, you made me so happy for giving me this , beautiful piece.

And then the gifts from LIZ  (Lululiz in Lalaland) as I promised you in my last post.
Oh my goodnes Liz you spoiled me, with this gorgeus gift packet dear.
Have you ever seen such a beautiful tag, so full of beautiful ribbons, pearls, seashells and glitterbeads-and so wonderfully fitting for my home on the beach.

But this was the real gift, even more beautiful as the tag-I love the image Liz haz used for both ,it is so fantastic with the mermaids dancing there,
and look at the wonderful ribbons and with tassels,-the photo does not do it justice, in colors,and also not realy showing the lovely hearts shimmer.    -It is hanging in my blue kitchen :)
Dearest Liz it is such a beautiful gift, and a gorgeus art piece, you made me, sweet friend.

And on top of those gorgeus pieces ,there were also a sweet and beautifully decorated paper bag, filled with mop buttons-the loveliest little English bone china bowl, with a pretty piece of lace,with a tiny rusted key.

AND a roll of music paper, with a  lovely beige big piece of lace rolled around it.
Liz I`m so very thankful for this fantastic gift from you, that is my birthday gift-Thankyou from my heart dearest friend-you realy surprised me ,and made me happy, I love it all, and will treasure it alwayes.

How was your sundayes ,dear friends? well for many of you, it is not at all finished half as much as mine is-here it is 11 o`clock evening- so soon time for bed .I hope you all in US enjoy your fathers day,-- and everywhere else your sunday.
Thankyou all for being in my are all so very treasured.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

Dearest Dorthe, you have been truly blessed with such gorgeous Birthday gifts from Nancy and Liz. The tags and seam binding from Nancy are so beautiful in the softest shades and
the beachy themed collage and matching tag are so just right for your home perched above the sea. I recognize the dear little flower dish - it is very beautiful as are all the other little items.
Enjoy these little treasures and hope you have a really wonderful and exciting week.
Big bear hugs and kisses, sweet friend.

Dear Dorthe,

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Good morning, my sweet friend! Now tell me, were you allowed to open Liz's package so many days before your birthday? I'll have to ask her ;-). I know that you have received another gift which you have no permission for to open before Friday. When you get my package within the next days, you better not touch it too early either! Otherwise I have to take the ferry to your island and then I will pick a bone with you - or just hug you :-).
Liz's tag and collage are gorgeous and her other gifts are wonderful too. Nancy's pendant is pretty as well. Enjoy all the fantastic gifts, sweetie!
Have a lovely day and I send you mange kys og knus :-)

Dear Dorthe
These are such special gifts you shared with us.
It is amazing that the little bowl survived its journey in the mail.

Dorthe, Liz is a wonderful friend, isn't she. So generous and FUN! I love her sense of humor. And this tag is so Liz!

Oh've given me another place to shop! Uh oh! LOL!

I hope you're having a wonderful day and that the tourists find your shop and spend lots of money!
