I am home again after the most beautiful wedding-It took place in so wonderful surroundings ,and was filled with sweet and lovely people , and lots of fantastic music-if you read my last post you know the the bride -Ditte and her -now husbond- Sigurd are both fantastic musicians-..
And here  she is --the beautiful and so ,so sweet bride-( my niece ) she did the dress herself-isen`t it so wonderfully made? it is laced in the back- and the tulle hanging under the skirt, looked so sweet.

A piece of  a collage card made to say thankyou to a very sweet friend -for a lovely nature gift.

I also love to  show you this wonderful birthday present that my dearest friend Paula ( whom have become very special close to me ) send me-- -here is a sneak peak from opening the packet! 

And see here all the beautiful packed gifts-I was so overwhelmed.

Have you seen the most beautiful tag dearest Paula made for me- we both love pinks !
There was also pretty white linens- folded and with seambinding and a sweet tag, and other beautiful old laces- ----and OH MY -
a pair of old baby leather boots-very used and very wonderful.Sweet Paula know how difficult it is to find them here, and so lovingly send me a pair. Thankyou my dear friend.

The box Paula made enterily herself, of cardboard, and "dressed" it in wonderful paper, and the sweetest fairi image on top. Inside was among buttons,also two pair of lovely earrings-you can see them in the photo below.Can you also see the other wonderful laces and  the cute pink tag.

Here they are, gorgeus ,don`t you think?

and this most beautiful heart, made from Paula`s heart to mine-I know-
with the little pocket with old text from an english/french word book.

She also sewed this sweetest needle bag from old beautiful laces,to me
 -inside is needles and other sewing notions. (Also love the cute tissue paper :)  )
and ,see this beautiful pillow, so wonderfully filled with the most cute baby socks-lovely vintage flover, old cabinet card, and music paper.As I took the photo , in this angle you can`t see the gorgeus old lace below on the pocket. Paula sweetie everything is so very beautiful, my dear .

A close up, of the sweetest socks -they are adorable. 

And the last photo  showing the pillow, filled with all the gorgeus things-
and in front, a beautiful old creamer-isen`t it just fantastic?
I love the white and gold together!

I can`t tell you what those beautiful and lovely gifts all means to me, -only that I worship them so much, and that they filles my heart with joy, every day looking at them
Thankyou my precius friend, Paula- I love you, and send you blessings.
I`m happy to be back again- and to be very bussy in my shop-even it takes time from blogging- but I hope I will soon have visited you all , dear friends.
Thankyou to new follovers- many of whom I can`t see have a blog of their own ? I am so happy to see you on my blog- Thankyou .
To all and everyone out there
Hugs and love-
