A wonderful show on the Christmas ship : "Poul Anker"

I`m tired but happy home again , from the show on board the Christmas Ship.
Many dolls and other creations got new homes, and I could smile after 50 hours on board.
I have found a few photoes to show you what my booth looked like!

We have to bring all needed to the display, so we had big table plates, and big branches with us as we went onboard friday afternoon.
Here is the most of the table, showing angels of many kinds, also hanging from the roof-many of them luckily
flying off to new homes :)

And here they are again, the father christmasses-
with the heads of 3 sweet angels

One of my homemade cards, using June`s  ( Dezinaworld ) white sheet.

Home for some of my woolen elves

Fairie angels, and doily angels

More christmas elves

And the last photo shows, the window sill in my computer room- just now, with little handmade trees-
an old church, and other mini creations-this is almost the only place I have decorated a bit- but now things slow down a bit- so hopefully there will be more items to show from my home very soon.

Thankyou to all of you dear friends, whom have been thinking about me, and have been sending :"good luck" notes to me ,last week- They were dearly apreciated and they helped me have a wonderful week-end.
I hope you know how much I treasure you all !
Many hugs and much love to you all.

I lope the card you made.
Just found some old pics of cards I made a couple of years ago. May make some more. They were pretty cute even if I do say so myself.

Oh my sweet friend Dorthe Everything about your display is simply gorgeous - love the natural touches with the branches and the pretty lights.
You so deserve to reap the benefits of all of your long hard hours put into making such magic and to know that so many people can see the beauty too in the sales you made.
Well done sweetie!
Your dolls, angels, elves and Santas are beyond beautiful.
I am glad that you are home safely and can now catch up on a bit of rest before the Christmas shoppers arrive in your shop.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful experience with us all!
Love you and hug you,
Suzy xoxox

Sandy said...

Oh Dorthe,

It looks wonderful, I am so glad your creations found new happy homes. Your work is amazing!

Lululiz said...

I was sitting here looking at the photos of your table with my mouth hanging open....... I couldn't believe how many beautiful fairies, angels, Father Christmas and elves you had made. What a beautiful display, and I am not surprised you sold lots. Coming to your table must have been like walking into a magic wonderland.

Plush Possum Studio said...

You've obviously done this before, many times! Your professionalism shows. This is a very wonderful way of allowing others to gaze longingly, to touch, but not necessarily buy. The inspiration these non-buyers receive will have to be palpably felt. Your work speaks for itself.
It's a pleasure coming back to visit you to see how your area of the ship looked. Very impressive!
Happy Holidays!

creativelenna said...

oh my, it looks so festive. Beautiful, Dorthe!! I know you are very busy so many thanks for your visits when you can manage it -- and happy christmas! xoxox

Shari Replogle said...

Oh Dorthe what an absolutely beautiful display!

Oh my, Dorthe, your fingers HAVE been so busy!!!!! It all looks so wonderful and I'm happy to read that so many of your little creations have found new homes.

It is such a busy time of year! I have blogged a little bit but am just now catching up with my friends. I'm happy to read your good news about the show.

We have had a little snow and it's very cold. Winter has arrived and we are all snuggled in with our quilts, good books, fireplace and a glass of wine for the remainder of the day.

Blessings to you and wishing you a comfy evening too.
