A dreamy fairy ,with diamond dust on her wings.waiting for dark, to come out  to play-

It is mounted on top of an very old, and beautiful worn book cover.

Beautiful rose from my garden ,soft and wonderfully smelling. 

Sweetest friends , from tomorrow my daughter ,son in law, and the kids comes for summer hollyday, and It might almost surely mean, that there will be not much time here on the computer.
So PLEASE If I can`t visit you the coming week- know I will be back as soon as possibly-
and know I will miss you all very much.
But I love spending time with my little family, when they are here at last.......

Till then happy summer, and love and hugs,-

oh dorthe, your latest collage is so very beautiful! I love the frayed fabric and the book cover, the writing and the young girl. It is very inspiring to me!
Please, enjoy your family and do not worry about visiting blogs or not. You can always visit later, when they are sadly gone and you need cheering.
have fun! lots of hugs xo lenna

Hvilken yndig collage, Dorthe!
Rigtig god idé at lave den på en gammel bog-forside.

Ha' en rigtig god tid sammen med familien.
Jeg håber, at vejret er med jer, og at I får nogle skønne dage.

Dearest Dorthe
You have captured the night time fairy with dusted wings so beautifully with the very dark embroidered velvet fabric? So many elements in this all so beautifully collaged on top of that old tattered book cover and hanging from a rusty peice of metal. She has such a wondering face hiding in the shadows!
I do hope you are feeling so much better my very sweet friend after such a rough week and that you will now be ready to enjoy the most wonderful week ahead with you little family.
Thinking of you with love,
Big hugs and kisses to you,
Suzy x0x0x0x

Dear Dorthe,

I love your sweet fairy collage, and it is so dreamy and beautiful.
Your pink rose is one of my favourite colours, the soft pink and to have a fragrance, must be heavenly.
Enjoy your special time with your dear family for the holidays and I look forward to your return.

Always big hugs

Dorthe - you have a wonderful time with your family - those are very special times to be treasured! I can't wait until my grandbabies are big enough to come for visits and play - (our little Keri Beth just started walking last week!)

Thanks for your sweet visit - did you by any chance notice your beautiful garden doll (that you made for me) in one of the photos? She is watching over my yarn collection!

Have a wonderful visit - (maybe share a few photos later?) would love to see your family!

AND - your latest altered book colage is lovely - I love the black and tan together - the lace is beautiful and the precious angel - you make such amazing creations~~
