An ATC  I have made for a swap- more about that later!

Even after christmas I have been gifted with amazing gifts.
Before christmas I was the happy winner of dear DAWN `s beautiful giveaway, -she had made the most beautiful tiny christmas tree, and gorgeously put it under a glass dome, on a silvery pedestal

And when opening her packet, those pretty laces ,lovely rolled up with seambindings-an old photo,a resin charm, a page from a ledger book- a white wonderful christmas tree, and some other old papers, were there , as extra gifts for me, thankyou sweetie from my heart-I love it all. 
And the tree ! Isen`t it just so beautiful ?

See how fabolous it is decorated,  I love Dawn used the tiny brooch.All in all I guess it is maybe 25 cm, from foot to top of dome.I thought I had won the sweetest tree- but not the rest....so I was so exited to see it all there in the packet.
Thankyou my dearest Dawn, you are a very precius friend, and the most sweet, kind and helpful blogger ever.Your tree is still here in my window, as I hate to pack it down already :) I love it ,it is the most gorgeous little decoration.

Also I had ordered the most fantastic creations from another dear friend  REBECCA - and she so dearly ,also gifted me with the most beautiful gifts.

Look at those gorgeous packed  parcels! old tinsels, old decorations- ....  

And look what was inside - all this wonderful gifts for me, -I love the heart and the sweet sock-and little bird

And see here another so very beautiful fabric heart, with the most lovely laces. See the key with the heart and cross on, so meaningful on this heart.-Thankyou my dear,dear Rebecca, I couldn`t believe my eyes seing all this.

Here is the Cone I purchased from Rebecca- it is wonderfully decorated , on top, with old beautiful pieces

like this bird, a tree, and old tinsel, and papers- I so love it,

and this gorgeous flower,that I also purchased is FANTASTIC- big and beautiful.

Dear sweet Rebecca, from my heart ,also thankyou ,to you- I will treasure all this alwayes, and YES your cone is also still not packed down --
Because of christmas, those packets only arrived in the new year, so I have to enjoy them for a while,before they are packed away for next years happines.
I have been creating a bit, so that will be on my blog next time--untill then I wish you all dear friends and , old and new followers,  the very best rest of January.

Love and hugs

Good evening my dear friend,
What a very loveable little ATC - I think you are going to really enjoy making these little creations!
Your winning from Dawn is really gorgeous and also the gifts from Rebecca too!
I can really understand why you don't want to pack your Christmas decorations yet when you have had so little time to enjoy them.
Make the most of the love and joy you receive from these for a while yet!
Everything looks as white as snow but hopefully there is none on the ground outside as yet!
Big love and big hugs my dear sweet friend,
Suzy xoxox

Dear Dorthe,

All the gifts are so beautiful and you must have been thrilled.
Yes, you would want to keep some of the Christmas ones up all year.
You will be needing a bigger house Dorthe to store all your treasures.

Wishing you a happy rest of January
