I have cought a nasty cold, but I have to show you what I recieved in the post some time ago, from dear 

Katherine from Chatelet. I am sure many of you already knows her beautiful blog,
but if not, please go visit her, and see all her wonderful posts.

I won her gorgeous giveaway, and recieved a big heavy parcel.
This is what meet my eyes when opening it up !

Look how beautiful it was all packet,
this bag hold two of the actual giveaway gifts!

This wonderful  yarn holder with scissors- it is so big and beautiful.

And this sweetest tea-candle holder, with the little birds on top,
all in iron and in a lovely green colour. It is also maybe 
9 inchies high. 

In the long beautiful packet with the star bling ,was lots of lovely pearls in different shades ,
to be used for dolls or collages- 

And here her beautiful,sweet card.

But sweet Katherine also send me some belated birthday gifts,
look at this beautiful box ( I`m sorry for the wrong colour,you can see the real in the photo below)

the most stunning wrapped piece of soap, I don`t know how you made this dear Katherine,
it looks as if the soap was born with the lace and lovely trims around.
And look at that piece of jewlery on top!

Isen`t it so beautiful ,laying in the gorgeous box,this clever woman also
created herself. I think I will alwayes admire, and not use this beauty.

Also this most beautiful lavender pillow, was in this gorgeous packet
it is so beautifully made ,and so sweet- 
you totally spoiled me dear Katherina.

As if that was not enough I found this most adorable box  

containing candy, the sweet lady made for me herself.
If you visit Katherine, you will find she is a master in making such sweets,and 
meals, as well as her handmade art pieces.
They taste wonderful, dear friend,and I thank you from my heart
for all this beauty ,your lovely handmade pieces, and the 
fantastic giveaweay. You really made my day so special.

I want to thank you all for such heartwarming and sweet comments on my blog, and also for the many visiting me, without leaving comments- I feel blessed with you all, 
and would not do without you !!!

It is friday again- my sweet husbond will take care of the shop today, so I can rest at home,
and hopefully soon get rid of that stupid cold !
I wish you dear sweet friends a beautiful weekend, and hope you can enjoy some 
wonderful hours with family or friends.

Love and hugs from Dorthe

Nej hvor det glæder mig, at det netop var dig der vandt den candy, for du har jo svært ved at komme rundt og finde gode muligheder, her er der da noget at gå igang med (man kan jo ikke lave noget, hvis man ikke har noget at lave det af) det lille grønne fuglebur er så nuser. knus morkaren.

The most amazing parcel certainly arrived in your mail box Dorthe. I can sure it took your breath away when you saw all the gifts, each so perfect. I adore the soap!
We know you will enjoy all of those gifts.

Unknown said...

I am so happy my dear Dorthe, that you liked everything! :) Thank you for the post and I am thrilled that I made your day. Have a most wonderful Friday and I hope that you will feel much better soon! Try boiling together some lemon, an inch of ginger and some chili in a small pot and pour it into a glass and add honey -- It will be spicy, but in my experience really helps! :)

Oh my Dear Dorthe ~ Rest is a good idea to let your body heal faster...some tea and chicken soup maybe!

You take care and thank you for sharing all of the beautiful 'sunshine' that arrives in your mailbox! So many special gifts each one so thoughtful and lovely!

Sending you some Virginia sunshine dear one!

Shane Pollard said...

Dearest Dorthe
I'm sending you warm thoughts and hugs from NZ!!!
Rest and stay warm....
can you have a whole clove of garlic, wrapped in honey on a teaspoon - then swallow it whole (don't bite!!) this is our special family remedy for sore throats. Garlic and honey are both natures anti-biotics.

I'm thrilled for you winning Katherine's wonderful giveaway - I'm sure her parcel cheered you up.
Bloggers are just the sweetest people in the world - aren't we lucky to have all found each other in this way!

Is your husband taking care of your etsy shop - what a gem he is!

gentle warm hugs and much love
