Hello my dear friends- here I am back again- Mathilde is home with mom and dad-we were both so sad when saying goodby yesterday in Copenhagen!
So to make me feel a bit better I thought I would post one of my newest nymphs from the sea!

I used a piece of a kind of plastic-- from a fishermanns net for body, and then my beloved driftwood pieces for arms and legs,and wings. Hair is also found on the beach-

and that goes for the gum pieces also. 

She landed far away as a gift for a very dear friend-so I thought I could show her off now.

I look forward visiting you all again, and hope your week have been happy as mine!
I came home to the Island and a beautiful warm-and sunny weather today, so have been sitting out with a friend for some hours,chatting and relaxing-I hope your saturday will be equal lovely.

Warmest hugs and love to you all.
And welcome to new followers.

Здравей Дороти, твоите морски нимфи са много сладки. Материялите, които си използвала ги правят още по-истински, като излязли от морето... Поздрави и хубава неделя от мен.

A treasure from the sea! I know your granddaughter is missing you as much as you miss her. I always loved visiting my grandmother. Some of my most favorite memories are of my visits with her.

You do miss her when she goes home again, don't you?But I am sure it won't be long before you can spend time with her again.

Your newest creation is so much fun! A very modern young lady, perhaps a little rebellious even. She is fabulous!
