Last week the post brought me a big packet- from where?
from U.K.  for me ??? I did not get it....
Opening it up, there were the one sweet packet after the other !!

some with a beáutiful french old sheet under the ribbon

And then I saw this gorgeous tag-AND I KNEW..
LIZ, my dear friend- send me her fantastic christmas packet,that she had showed on her blog some dayes before- Click the button to visit Liz, and her wonderful new ETSY shop,also.

isen`t it the sweetest tag-I so love those two sisters

Now as LIZ herself had showed the beautiful black board on her blog, I knew what was in the biggest packet, but all the small ones- I had to ask for permission to open up now-before christmas :)

Isent it the most wonderful black board you have ever seen ?
I LOVE  it dear Liz  -you embellished it so lovely.

See how my name is spelled on top, and the beautiful stamped frame

And what about all this beauty? I could not believe my eyes when opening the little packages for all those lovely laces and fabolous braids-and MOP buttons-do you love MOP-buttons :) I dooo.
Thanks my friend- you made me very happy.

This collage is a little sampling of some of the gifts and cards I have made friends myself
they will hopefully be in the post today.....I`m late this year because of so very many shows, that thankfully were all much better than I had expected :)

Dear sweet friends -I wish you happy christmas preparations, all.
Hugs and love

Dearest Dorthe
What an incredibly beautiful package you have received from Liz!
So much gorgeousness with French papers, laces, doilies ribbons, sweet tags (I do remember the two sisters! and that chalk board with your name on it. I think you have been very spoilt by dear Liz but you certainly deserve such beauties.
She is such a kind soul!
Hope your week is going well!
Loving thoughts and hugs,

Evi said...

dear Dorthe, I am coming up for air from all the goings-on before Christmas. I missed so much on everyones blogs. Again you are the lucky receiver of such wonderful and special gifts.You deserve them!!!!
I looked at all the posts and loved your booth at the fair. What a neat idea to have it on a ship.
I am glad that it was a good show and I hope so was also your open house. I love your little angels and santas. They look sweet and say...take me home...
Thank you for your nice comment. I am going to write Jimmy a Christmas card and will tell him how he inspired you.
I miss not doing shows together anymore, and I miss Dean. You seldom find such a creative couple.
Dearest Dorthe, I wish you and your family a merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
Warm hugs, Evi

Barbara Jean said...

oooh, what a lot of wonderful treasures!!!

Quick note about the white Christmas girl on my last post.
I have had the picture for years and no clue where I got it.
So, it is OK with me to use it.... and hope it is OK with wherever I got it. =)
As far as other pieces I have used on my post, if you let me know which ones I will get back to you, and I will try to post OK's with future posts.

I mostly get them free from other bloggers.


Judy said...

Wonderful things, as usual!! How lucky to get that wonderful package! I love the images on the little match boxes in the next blog post. Pretty!

Have discovered Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine which is published in Denmark. The photography is outstanding! Such a pretty place and the homes are simple and elegant. Am going to subscribe!

Happy Holidays, Dorthe!
