SUMMER CREATIONS and a vacation

Here is a new angel, sweet and long-legged waiting in my shop, to be sold,
she is dressed in old laces-and beautiful fabric`s.

And maybe you remember me telling that my dear friend Anni and I desided to make each other a tussi mussi for each our birthdayes, which are both in june.So this is what I made her

it is real big, and the fabric ,folded around the form is partly old,partly new.

There is a little bird living on top of it, and I enjoyed hanging the sweet tools in rusted metal, to show the garden team , so beautifully added with the sweet girls.
I`m so sorry I do not remember from where it is, -if you know ,please tell me ,so I can tell it here.

I am glad Anni loves it.

A late beautiful yellow rose in my garden- which apart from this one, only holds pink,rosa, white, and lilla, coloured roses.-But it is so lovely, so I keep it.

Friday morning, we will take on a little vacation- and to my niece`s wedding.
Ditte is a fantastic fiddler and have played all over the world
She is marring her dear Sigurd, also a wonderful musician
You can click the  last link to see,them both on You Tupe.I love them.

My sweet friend Lena, will live here while we are gone, and take care of the shop- I am so garteful for that.

I will not be in touch for 5 dayes  :(  but I so look forward to this few dayes away, -so you will hear from me when returning wednesday, next week.
Much love and many hugs,- thankyou to all my lovely friends commenting here, it is bringing me so much happines.

Oh Dorthe..your new doll looks like a bride herself dressed so beautifully in all that lace, speaking of weddings! She is so gorgeous and full of life! Annie's tussie-mussie is divine - I really love the gardening theme, of course, and all the rusty gardening tools reflecting the beautiful image of the garden girls - just beautiful - just like the beautiful rose at the bottom of the blog.
Do have a very special time at Ditte's wedding sweetheart and enjoy your precious time away and bring home some lovelies to enjoy and play with.
To a wonderful Aunt - I am sure Ditte knows that and enjoy all that fabulous music all night long - what a treat!
Mange mange kys og knus,
Suzy xoxox

Your newest doll is absolutely beautiful - she really does look like an angel. Each of your dolls is so unique - I treasure my garden doll above almost anything here in my Sacred Yarn room!

You made a beautiful gift for your friend - I know she will be thrilled - what a nice way to share a friendship~~

I will be looking forward to hearing all about the wedding and your little mini vacation.

I saw the collage at Cindy Atkins blog that you sent her. Wow! That is all I can say! You are very talented. When I saw dolls here I started to hear my heart ski a beat! Amazing! I am a lover of dolls but have never been artistic to make my own. I do love admiring other works of art. Thank you for sharing your talent and I am new following you. Thank CIndy for her generous share so I too can know you! Anne

Another beautiful angel from you! The cones are awesome & what a great swap idea. So your off for a vacation? How excellent & well deserved. I will listen to the link with the music, it sounds lovely.
Still no package?:( I'm getting worried. I hate for you to leave without recieving it. Maybe it will arrive before you leave.
