Yes I`m still taking small breaks from the doll sewing- making small cosy christmas pieces.
Lately I have seen so many cute houses everywhere-and wanted to make my own.
I had a tiny wood birds house, and the wooden old spool is from my dear friend Robin.I used embossed metal paper (from my Bog Shot ) Diamond glace glitter and a sweet dove-it`s app.16 cm high.

Yesterday my husbond dragged me out of the sewing room- to take me on a tour to a wood, running along side the sea.Here we parked our car.

See how close we were -isen`t it beautiful?

So gorgeous colors- the water is on the right.

Me in front of the sea.

And this very beautiful old yellowed tree.

Tonight is Halloween - and I wish all my American friends a wonderful "scary" and funny Halloweens Eve.
And ofcourse everyone else whom celebrates tonight-
Tomorrow is first november-and another month dissapered just in a blink-I know most of us will not have more time to relax and enjoy the -NOW- in this coming months -but lets give it a try :)

Virkelig dejlige og flotte natur-billeder, kære Dorthe!
Der er simpelthen så mange flotte farver at finde ude i naturen i disse dage, ikke sandt? Jeg elsker alle de gule, orange og røde farver!
Rigtig god uge til dig.

Jeg smiler af, fuglen må sidde oven på sit hus, for dukken er flyttet ind. skøn tur du og din mand tog i den Bornholmske natur.
v.h. morkaren.

Oh Beautiful Dorthe! Lovely pictures and I just adore your creation. It's getting cold here in Texas, but only at night. I am ready for Autumn days! xo

Dear Dorthe,

What a very sweet house you have made love all the gold and glitter.
Also I enjoyed seeing where you went on your walk with your husband.
Sometimes I do think we need to drag ourselves away and go out and enjoy the outdoors. It is so pretty with the Autumn leaves and the water.
Happy November and yes, didn't October go so quickly!

Your bird house is adorable, Dorthe! I have a couple of these in my playroom just waiting to be beautified...hoping to get to them soon, maybe for a Christmas gift for my mom who loves birds!

That's a beautiful birdhouse, my dear Dorthe! The embossed metal paper pieces make such great embellishments. I'm getting more and more into the Christmas mood already.
What a lovely way through the woods and the tree looks so pretty. Hopefully you can take some more walks before it gets really cold.
Have a wonderful week, sweetie :-)!
Mange kys og knus og tusind kærlige hilsener,

My dear Dorthe - so good to see you taking a break and a change of pace as well as projects. The little bird house is so cute - love the little face!
Oh what a gorgeous walk Henning took you on to get you away for a little while to be in touch with your natural surroundings. You look so rugged up as if it is already cold weather! I would have loved to have walked that path with you my sweet!
Love you dear friend,
Suzy xoxox

Lisa said...

Look at you! I love to see pictures of my friends on the blogs. We're sometimes a bit shy (talking about myself) You look beautiful & relaxed in that amazing forest. How lucky you are to live in such a magical part of the world. I hope to see it & you in real life one day.

I love your path through the woods with glimpses of the sea. Your husband was a smart man to drag you off for a walk, and you look quite happy to be there. Enjoy this season Dorthe because winter's snows will soon be upon us!
The house you made is wonderful - and makes a special decoration anytime of year but especially now, as we come closer to Christmas!

Diane said...

I'm so glad that your husband took you out to enjoy this beautiful, but too short season.
And I'm glad that you listened to your muse and created this beautiful house!

Lululiz said...

Its great to see you out and about and enjoying nature instead of being cooped up indoors. Having said that, when you are indoors, you create the sweetest things, the birdhouse is gorgeous!

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh Dorthe,

Wishing you a beautiful day!

My Dear Friend Dorthe. Now is the time when the clock begins to speed and the minutes fly by faster and faster. The days melt into night snd so so on, speed mad, and hurtling towards Christmas day. It is both magical and maddening. Your walk in the Woods...I had to chuckle. I have made small Christmas ornaments called Walk in the Woods bags filled with pinecones and dried flowers to hang on the tree. It is stuinningly beautiful there. Love your photo. Love you. R
