I have recieved stunning gifts from many dear friends to my birthday, and shows them as they arrived!
So today it is parcels from my dear   VIOLA.
She creates the most beautiful artwork, and she is a very dear friend.

This is how beautiful the parcels looked !

Each with a wonderful tag.

And inside this envelope --- a beautiful collage in it self --- there was 
a lovely card for me.

It is gorgeous , and I am sorry the colours are a bit bluish here! 

The first gift I opened was this very beautiful and lace-
filled pinn-book,-- I love the sweet image of a farm girl---
just like me, :-)

This is the back- so very lovely.

In the second packet I opened ,I found the most gorgeous collage,
have you ever seen anything so very beautiful.

All the laces placed like flowers, and the wonderful way Viola added all kind 
of fantastic materials to this piece of beauty! I love it -you should see it in real !!

Isen`t the image awsome?

And the last opened gift, was this stunning heart ,my sweet friend 
made for me. -it is so beautiful, and so gorgeous in it`s brownish colours- the
many fantastic laces and ribbons, tulle, and cheese cloth, -all 
arranged with  Viola`s wonderful sence for beauty.

I feel so lucky and happy, to have friends making such beauty ,for me.
And hope I can make them smile, and be happy as they do me!
That goes for you my dearest Viola, -you made me smile and feel happy,
opening all those gifts from your heart,to me.
THANKYOU, I treasure every single piece dear friend.

I have many more beautiful gifts from dear sweet friends, to show, and the next fantastic packet I had delivered ,is from   "downunder"  

See you soon again,-- in the week-end, I will be visiting with my daughter and her family :-)
you know that means Mathilde and Gustav, my grandkids.

so maybe see you only monday again
Therefore big hugs and love to you all, and a happy week-end.

Ja men Dorte, jeg forstår din glæde, det er nogle smukke og søde gaver du har fået af din ven, jeg var lige inde på hendes blog og kikke, og hun er både kreativ og dygtig, men jeg kunne ikke finde ud af at blive "følger"
du spørger til mit helbred, der er ingen forandring, jeg skal vist til at vænne mig til at dingle rundt.knus morkaren.
