This is my windowssil in my "office" -now decorated for christmas.
This is only a part of it, but some of you may recognice your
beautiful creations. I love to display my many gifts and purchases so I see
them every day sitting here.

The sweet glass globe with the beautiful tree inside, is from sweet DAWN-
The  tree with the glass ball on top,the collage hanging from the curtain,the baby shoe with wings, and most beautiful heart with crystal,hanging, is purchases and gift from dear KIMBERLY--the sweet heart laying from another dear friend REBECCA--and the wonderful hand I purchased from BECKY  On A wing and a Prayer. The card with wonderful santa is from last year ,from my dear VIOLA.
Please click the names ,and go visit all those wonderful friends and artist, to see more.

I made some different christmas cards, using mostly fabric, stamped or
transferred with beautiful images,--here you see two of them.

And this is from today, -my garden totally decked with beautiful snow,-
and inside in the window, my Advents wreats -a tradition in Denmark,
it is made on a wooden pedestal, and an old metal wreath from the
fifties-wherein i layed moss,some white and silvery paper flowers,a bow ,
and silver and snow dust, on the green moss. We light one candle
every sunday in Advent untill christmas.

I love the orchids  blooming beautifully now.

I hope you have also all started making your home a little cosy ,with 
lovely christmas items, and decorations. I love this time of year, and just
wished that December was much longer,-lol.

Welcome to new followers, I`m so happy you are here,
and hugs and blessings to all dear friends .
XOXO  Dorthe

Dorthe how beautiful your windows are with your treasures. The white snow outside is perfect for the white and greens of orchids and candles with moss. Simply elegant dear...

Liebe Dorthe, wie immer bin ich Speeches when I see your beautiful windows mit allen Deinen Schätzen . And the Sea is so nearly. I love your combinations in white and Green. It is just perfect. I also love Deine wundervollen Karten. Sie sehen aus wie Träume aus lange vergangenen Tagen. Jede erzählt ein Märchen oder eine Geschichte - so wie Deine Schätze am Fenster. Ich wünsche Dir einen schönen Advent. Mit Kerzenschein, schöner Musik und heißem Tee. Liebe Grüße zu Dir und Küsse von Deiner Erika

Kære Dorte, du har mange dejlige skatte, men jeg tror næsten det jeg misunder dig mest (det er ikke pænt at være misundelig) er din udsigt, tænk at bo så man kan se havet fra sit vindue og se årstidernes skriften. knus morkaren.
