One of my dear friends celebrated her birthday
lately, and this tag was a  littlen greeting among the other gifts from me.
As we were so near Halloween I could not resist  making her it a bit  dark and spooky!

Have you ever seen such a wonderful charm, handmade ,-with my dear 
grandchildren`s photoes, taken from my blog and used  one on 
each side.

Sweet   TANYA from Bead and Needle, making the most gorgeous 
jewlery, which she sells in her Etsy shop- wrote to ask for my adress, as she had
two old photoes coming from Denmark, which she dearly wanted me to have.

You can see them here, together with all the other gorgeous gifts she send me!
like the rolls of lovely laces in beige and white.

Beside the necklace in colour, dear Tanya also made me two charms in 
black /white to use as another necklace charm---,and one for my christmas tree.I
so admire Tanya`s beautifully soldered charms with all the "pearls" she makes 
around the photoes-aren`t they beautifully made.
And they could not hold any items more dear to me that those two kids!
Thankyou dearest Tanya, for your generous gifts
 you made me so happy - my friend.

Also another dear friend JILLAYNE  from A Fine Seam
have gifted me beautifully.

Those wonderful made napkin holders ,dear Jillayne made me
as a late birthday gifts.
They are in beautiful autumn colours and with the sweet wooden apple button,
and see how lovely she embroidered all around them .

I also recieved those beautiful old French laces , in cream

and green, together with 2 pieces of lovely  eyelet fabric

Aren`t it all so very beautiful- also the cute card,
Jillayne wrote me.

One of the gifts was wrapped in the most beautiful piece of
new fabric with the snowflakes,
and inside was also another piece of  wonderful 
post images and cards printed fabric, which I love,too.
Thankyou my dear Jillayne, for your beautiful gifts,
you are such a lovely friend.


I know time is so very sad, and terrible for many friends in USA after the awful storm,
they had,- and my thoughts goes out to the many whom lost
family, homes and all they had.
I pray for them, there will be a life to treasure, in time to come,
so they can feel happy and safe again.
Love and hugs,

Hello dear Dorth,

Just wanted to stop by and thank you for your thoughtful concern on the storm, I am so very grateful. We made it through with some missing roof shingles and a broken fence but compared to others I am so blessed. Your comments and prayers are what helped me get through this terrible storm.

xo, abby

Dorthe Dear your gifts are very kind and thoughtful. People who really know you and love you do the personal touches. Tanya's soldered charms are amazing and such a great gift idea. Jillayne always does the most beautiful packages of goodies. I am fortunate enough to speak first hand and will be posting my good fortunes soon. Blessings my friend...

Hello my precious friend, Dorthe
Those soldered charms are absolutely gorgeous and I know how much they mean to you. So sweet of Tanya to make these and send you the other lacey goodies also.
Your Halloween Birthday tag certainly does have a dark side to it with the stamped crow!.

Jillayne also has made such a beautiful gift with those napkin holders created so lovingly by her for you. A special gift along with the lovely cotton laces also.

Hope there is some sunshine and love amidst the cold for your weekend there and coming from me also sweetie.
Your Suzy xox

These are all so beautiful! I love the charms of your grandchildren. They are beautiful children! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hurricane Sandy only brought Michigan winds and we had a power outage for about 10 hours - other than that we are fine here.

Hello My Friend
The tag is wonderful, the Oxford Impressions stamps look amazing on the tag. I know your friend will treasure and display year after year, as I will with the collaged tag you sent to me for Halloween.
Such special gifts you received. The beautiful charms with those dear photographs, so very special.
Wishes to you
