Hi all dear friends, --we are allone here again,and I thought I would show you a collage I made some weeks ago,-and also a fantastic surprice I recieved with the post.
But first my collage..
as you can see I used lots of old laces and a beautiful angel image.

I covered it with a piece of mica, sewing it on with the mashine.
I also used old papers, tea bag,- and my loved skeleton leaves, in the button right corner.

isent it beautifully packed?

It came from dear SONYA,  of  COUNTING MY BLESSINGS---totally out of the blue, as a bloglove gift.And I am so in love with both creations, and feel so blessed recieving such  gorgeous art pieces, just like that!

Inside the wonderful paperbag, was this stunning card, which my photo does not do justice- as it is a totally beautiful shimmer of the glitter Sonya used, and you can`t see that the angel is standing out from the background, and all the lovely flowers.

Inside the packet was this -I did not believe my eyes- beautiful collaged piece- in the most pretty romantic colours, the rose that Sonya made herself, and the sweet little charms.

I so love it, and also that it hangs from a dryed branch. If you click the photo you can read the text, that have a special meaning for dear Sonya, that I`m now sharing. Isen`t it the most fabolous piece,-I think it is!
Thankyou dearest Sonya from my heart, you made me feel so happy and blessed sweet friend.
The collage in on my door to my private room- hanging on the outside- (and inside is one of Suzy`s beautiful collages.)

I`m sure many,many of you know Sonya, but if not- go visit her lovely blog-just click her name above.

Now this is also goodies- --goodies I found over at another dear friends ETSY SHOP---LIZ  from 
have lots of wonderful things for sale in her shop ,and this french tags I had to have.

Sweet as Liz is , she also made me a beautiful tag, --as a matter of fact done on the back of one of the same tags I bought  :) 
I love this Marie Antoinette picture , and the lovliest laces ,Liz used .

and she even send me those beautiful flower ribbon and the old lovely tulle ribbon-
Dearest Liz, I love it all, and your tag is hanging here in my room,--thankyou so much sweet friend.

If you click this last photo you can read the adress of Liz`s wonderful Etsy shop---go take a look ,---there are new goodies for sale very often.

Here winter has arrived-- not so much with snow, but it is so very cold, and therefore wonderful to stay inside creating, which I will do the coming months .
I hope you are all well, --thankyou for your beautiful comments, they are deeply apriciated-
and welcome to new followers, thankyou all for being here :)

I send you smiles, and
hugs and love.

My Dear Sweet Friend
That is an amazing winged angel collage covered in mica with your skeleton leaves so special to your creations.
And how lucky to receive Sonya's pre-raphaelite collage hanging on that wood - one of my favourite artists and to be hanging so close to the one from me also!
Now I have to visit Liz's fabulous Etsy shop - she has the most interesting items and is a wonderful person too.
Hope you don't miss Mathilde toooo much this week - at least you can create a lovely birthday creation for her.
Sending you blessed thoughts of love and kindness,
yours, Suzy xoxox

Is the house very quiet now without the lovely young lady running around? I am sure you had the most wonderful time with her.
What can I say about the beautiful collages, both yours and Sonya's, which hasn't been said already? They are so gorgeous, all those fabulous little touches, the wonderful embellishments, you can look at them for ages and be soothed by them. Sonya is such a generous person.
Thank you so much for mentioning my Etsy shop as well, that was really sweet of you.
Big hugs to you xxx
