I love beautiful old images of birds, and this in black and white is a favorite-and as many of  you know, I also love nature images, so this combination alwayes is  beautiful ,I think.

Can you see the button in the right side, they are made by ABBY, from Abby`s Paperie Garden--click the photo to see it closer. Sweet Abby sells thise beautiful paper buttons in her Etsy shop.

One of my very dear blog-and telephone friends here in Denmark--dear Anni- desited that it was time for us   to meet, and that it was most practically done, in Copenhagen-where both  she and I have our daughters.So after I left Mathilde with her parents, we met ,and had a very happy, and wonderful time together, for the most of the day,till my buss to Sweden and home ,arrived.
It was first time we were face to face, so we had joked about what would happen,if   suddenly we could not talk at all! This photo of us,was taken by Anni`s sweet daughter ,whom came to meet her, when we said goodby--can you tell it was cold!

Well -there were not many pauses, LOL .We  visited some special shops ,we both love-bought a few things- laughed and talked-
had lunch at a great place where they serve most disches from the Mediteranium countryes so yummy--
and exchanged our christmas gifts.
This wonderful  retro  tag  was outside my  packet-

Which was this so very beautiful, and gorgeous heart pillow,

I love all the handmade laces and doilies , and the beautiful images Anni used.

It fits wonderfully at the top of my coutch- and the colours Anni choosed are perfect for this spot.
Thankyou so much dear friend- I love your gift-and I love you-thankyou for the most  beautiful day.

The sea is very cold here ,too-and as you can see there are ice on all the rocks- they promised a bit warmer weather for the week-end-- lets hope they are right.
Hugs and love to you all

Hej Dorte, ja du kan bilde mig ind der er koldt på Bornholm, i har jo havet hele vejen udenom. hvor er det et dejligt hjerte, og en super ide at bruge en lynlås som ramme om billedet,nu må det godt snart blive forår. knus morkaren.

Emilie said...

Kære Dorthe.

Delige billeder af smukke kreationer! Og hvor spændende, at I endelig kunne møde hinanden og havde en dejlig tid sammen.

Og hvilket vinterbillede!
Herovre vestpå har vi også fået en masse sne, og jeg synes godt nok, at det er blevet lige lovlig meget vinter. Hvor er det koldt! Heldigvis bliver dagene lysere, og jeg drømmer mere og mere om forår.

Jeg har været inde på Google Street View og se dit fine hjem. Det ser rigtig hyggeligt ud, der hvor du bor! Hvis/når jeg en dag får muligheden for at komme til Bornholm igen, må jeg da forbi din lille butik. :-)

Håber, du har en dejlig uge.
Knus, Emilie.

Isn't it so special to finally meet up with someone you've been "internet" friends with for years...I have had that happen a few times over the last few years, and it's been wonderful. Glad you had such a great time with Anni!

Beautiful items, as always, Dorthe...I do hope you're in for some warmer weather soon...that ice looks cold! Tanya

Angela Richardson said...

How wonderful that you met Anni and had such a lovely time together.
I have met one fellow blogger and found it an unusual experience. however it was great to chat and talk of our shared blogging friends.
It does look cold, hopefully spring will arrive early.
Smiles, Angela.

Sandy said...

What a fun time you and your friend had. There is nothing better than shared friendship and spending a little time enjoying each others company. What lovely gifts. Your sea is so beautiful with all the ice on the rocks.

And yes, it looks VERY cold there. Brrrr! It has been beautiful weather here with the temperature in the 50's F. A bit unusual but I am enjoying it.
Thank you for sharing your gifts with us-you deserve them my friend!

Wasn't it such a wonderful occasion to meet up with Anni - you both look just so happy together and all wrapped up to the hilt in thick coats and scarves with lovely smiles.
The heart and tag from Anni are beautiful and special!
I just so love your beautiful bird tag Dorthe with the mica and that beautiful leaf and nest. Such beautiful little details that you have created - you have the most wonderful talent sweet friend!
I hope you are keeping warm with that fire keeping those creative fingers moving with a new project.
Love you and sending much warmth and many hugs!

Lisa said...

How fun to meet a phone friend for the first time in the flesh. I get so nervous when I meet blogging friends in person for the first time. I'm worried that once we are face to face we wont' have anything to say to eachother. When I picked Dawn up from the airport a couple of years ago there was an akward moment & then it was like we'd always been together.
I love seeing pictures of you! The ocean looks beautiful to me. I wish I could see it & you one day.

My Creative House said...

My dear Dorthe such a wonderful new creation from your hand, love the bird image, yes it was a fantastic day we had together, so wonderful that we could talk together without the telefon, hope we soon will meet again .
Hugs and love Anni

June said...

Oh Brrrrr that looks so cold Dorthe. But I was warmed right up after seeing your beautiful bird collage and the darling picture of you and Anni. How wonderful you could meet face to face and do a little shopping and chatting and laughing. Anni made you such a beautiful heart pillow to remember her by!

Have a nice sunday.

Lynne Moncrieff said...

Dear Dorthe
Yes, finally it is me visiting you :)
The collage is divine in all its precious details. It is so very "you". The sewing and that button bring it all together so wonderfully.
How special for you and Anni to meet. Imagine, not many pauses lol. Then eating and shopping, I say a perfect day.
The sea looks so cold but very beautiful.
