HI I´m here back again

Hi all dear bloggers and friends,-yesterday my daughter and her family left for home, and we are here "allone" again,  after one week of many wonderful hours together.

As I have not been creating for this week-I thought I would show you the gifts I made for my dear friend Julia , `S  birthday.
This driftwood angel ,I can only show you the top of, as the other fhotoes unfortunately were very bad!

This is an  old wooden curtain stopper, found on fleamarkets- if lucky....
My husbond made the foot for me, and then I decorated with paint ,silverleaves,old text and image.

Also made sweet Julia a bird, and decorated the old spool with silkthread, with a domino charm.

Another domino charm, that I knew Julia loved, and a tiny envelope with letter inside.

and ofcourse a card for my friend.

Some time ago I was the unbelivable lucky winner in a giveaway, from
Terri Heinz  from Artful Affirmations

Just look what she send me ...a wonderful bunch of everything beautiful, and funny to create with.

Look at this old document, and the two transparent tissue sheets Terri made herself-you can see a tutorial on her page of how she does that-I just love them.

Dominoes, pearls, flowers

papers of all kind-beautiful images, tags , little books to decorate,

laces, blings, and more fantastic images, and papers.

Can you believe all that wonderful stuff,?  I got my eyes wide open when I saw it all.
THANKYOU  Terri ,so very much , I feel like the luckyest girl in the class  :)
and can`t wait to play with all this.
You have to VISIT TERRI  and her blog,-it is a wonderful place--just click the link above, to go there.

The sun is shining here on and off -raining almost the whole day- and did that for now one week !!!!
I hope this week will bring  a better weather, for all the ones having hollyday.
I also wish everyone else a beautiful week- and will try to visit you all and see all the lovely blogs I have missed last week.
Love and hugs, Dorthe

Hej Dorthe.
Godt at høre, at du har haft en dejlig uge sammen med familien.

Sikken en fantastisk præmie, du har vundet. Det må jeg sige! Der er da helt sikkert mange små skatte til at lave en masse flotte kreationer.

Ha' en rigtig god uge.
Jeg håber også på bedre vejr...
Hvor er sommeren dog blevet af?

Hi sweetie, I'm sorry for being so late but yesterday and today were a little bit stressful and I hadn't looked at any blogs. You know that I love your gorgeous creations and I will enjoy having your wonderful gifts displayed in my studio and our living room. How sweet that you remembered that I loved especially those dominos.
Thank you so much for all the fantastic presents, my dear friend!

Hi Sweetie
So glad you had a good time with your family... it is good to just drop everything and be with your loved ones. I did that last week, all my girls were here and we just hung out. Didn't do much just ate and talked.
Your gifts are so lovely, I love my heart and have it hanging right next to me and when I look at it I just say " Bless Dorthe Dear Lord!"
Have a wonderful day
