This little lavender sachet, is off to a very dear blogger and Etsy friend, whom have alwayes treated me so very sweet.

And this one- also filled with lavender in a little front bag ,is now in my Etsy
I have long neclected my Etsy shop, as there have been so much to make for my real shop, but now I will try to come back :)

I also added an angel doll.
She wears rusty wings-and old laces over callico-she also wears
her heart outside- and have sand in her legs to give her a heavy hanging.

And today, one of my dearest blog friends -Paula- have birthday-
I wish you the most lovely day-and sends you birthday kisses- and warm hugs.
You are such a wonderful friend. I love you, dear.

This altered old napkin bag and the heart-tag,below- are a few of the gifts Paula recieved from me .

I love the poem I added to the tag...:
"If you keep a green bough in your heart,
then the singing bird will come"  (Chinese proverb quote)

I can see I have almost reached 400 followers- and I want to thank all of you ,whom finds time to watch, and also to comment, it is a very importent part of my life, to have you here.
So in not long time from now- I guess there will be a giveaway--I will start thinking -and creating, so I have something finished, when I reach the 400- :)
Also thanks to all new bloggers, some of you have already become dear friends,whom I treasure very much.

Hugs and love

My Dearest friend - so much creativity is flowing from your heart to your hands at present - the little lavender bags are so sweet and different with the lavender showing on the outside - what a great idea!
Oh rusted wings angel so delicate and unique in her lacey dress wearing her heart on the outside!
The little bag and heart so purposefully made for another sweet heart in need of upliftment at this time and so shall she be with your blessed birthday gifts to Paula.
She will be thrilled to receive such precious gifts for a birthday to remember!
Sending my love and big hugs sweetie.

I always enjoy visiting your blog.

Emilie said...

Sikken nogle bedårende lavendelposer! Åh, der er næsten heller ikke noget bedre end duften af lavendel, synes jeg.

Og din lille engel, hun er da bare henrivende. Jeg kan rigtig godt lide hendes blondekjole.

Godt at høre, at I i det mindste har haft lidt dejligt efterårsvejr, mens vi andre har haft dårligt vejr. Heldigvis skulle vi vist få flot vejr denne uge, så det vil jeg se frem til.

Ha' nu en rigtig dejlig uge, Dorthe!
