As you may know, I celebrated my birthday one week ago, and I still have so many beautiful gifts to show you, from all over the world, from some of my dearest friends.

Today I will first show you what I recieved from my dear SUZY !
She is my close and lovely friend!!

Here is the packet so lovely with a piece of old lace around.

And inside the sweetest and beautiful bird tag, I love Suzy`s style.

This card is just stunning-the colours are too pale in my photo,you should see it in real,I truly gasped when opening up, - this is so Suzy, and what I love.

Inside another birdie and her beautiful birthday wisches for me.

And before I show you the most wonderful present a little glimse of the lovely fabric and handkerchiefes
my sweet friend also added.

But you should not wait longer! :-)  have you ever seen such a beautiful Sewing Caddy
It is in white / black heavy toile and decorated with suzy`s amazing way of combining laces and other pieces.
I love it with the lovely cheese cloth flower and netting.

Inside 2 pockets to keep threads and little pieces, and the pin cussion in the middle

The back as beautifull , also.

Also my dear Suzy had added sweet little things like this serviette,and old sewing notions.
My dear lovely friend, thankyou from my heart for your gorgeous wonderful gifts.

A glimpse from my garden -isen`t this stunning?

And then from another sweet, dear friend ALEXANDRA  ,I am sure many knows her wonderful blog, but if not press her name to visit. 

Have you seen a more pretty and beautiful present-the flower so lovely
and the packet filled with sweet dried rose petals, beautiful!

Inside I found two beautiful decorated boxes, both with lovely flowers.

And opening the bigger ( first hehe) this old pretty handkerchief covered a most beautiful
jewelry piece from dear Alexandra.
One of her shells ,that I had admired ,when she showed them on her blog.See the little 
Eiffel Tower, dangling from the chain, and the golden dust on the old paper.
Thankyou my dear, I love it .

The other box also held treasures,-lots of old glass buttons in wonderful low tone colours.

And inside a sweet handmade envelope--

3 lovely tags with beautiful laces .
Thankyou so very much dear friend, for you gorgeous gifts.

I am so spoiled from both Suzy and Alexandra,- 
and it does not end with those amazing gifts, so I hope you enjoy seing yet another post later this week ?

In the meantime I wish you a beautiful week- here we have summer at last - beautiful warm,AND EVEN WITH RAIN IN NIGHTS -

Thankyou for watching my treasured friends-
and love and hugs to you all.

What delightful presents! You are blessed, Dorthe, with wonderful friends. Thank you for sharing your gifts. I've been drooling,

Kære Dorthe.

Tak for din hilsen.
Sikken en masse dejlige gaver, du har modtaget. Det må bestemt varme, når nu det gode vejr ikke følger så godt med. Her svinger det også meget med vejret, men jeg håber, at sommeren stadig kan nå at gøre sit indtog.

Jeg nyder ferien efter nogle veloverståede eksamener. Ja, jeg læser videre og vil derfor bruge ferien på at komme helt ned i gear, så jeg har fornyet energi til et nyt semester. Har ikke de store ferieplaner. Det bliver nok mest til diverse familiebesøg rundt om i landet.

Det er da ærgerligt, at det går trægt for salget. Jeg håber for dig, at turisterne strømmer til, når nu industriferien begynder. Du bor trods alt på Solskinsøen, så mon ikke der er håb forude. :-)

Knus, Emilie

Vicki Boster said...

Dorthe- those certainly are the most beautiful gifts ever-- Suzy definately has her own unique and beautiful style-- she is the queen of lace. And your gifts from Alexandra are beautiful as well! Your birthday just keeps on coming!!!

Bente said...

Hei, kjære Dorthe. Tusen takk for fine ord hos meg. For noen nydelige gaver du har fått. Det er så mange utrolig kreative damer rundt om.

Håper det blir varmere vær hos deg. Vi reiser til Danmark på Lørdag. Skal være en uke på Jylland. Gleder oss til det.

God klem fra meg.

Hallo Süße, You've received such awesome gifts from these sweet friends. Suzy's sewing caddy is fantastic. I love that cream and black toile fabric and of course all the beautiful embellishments. The tag, card and additional gifts are wonderful too.
Alex' necklace is fabulous and was packaged so lovely in that beuatiful box. The laces and buttons are yummy.
Enjoy everything!

Здравей Dorthe, Подаръците ти са великолепни и толкова много... Аз наистина не съм виждала такъв невероятен несесер, каква изработка и дизайнерски усет.
Поздрави и хубав ден от мен.
