Yes I have catched a cold/flue and am feeling tired and bad,-it luckily first really started yesterday
after I left Mathilde with her parents, and went home to my island again!

As I have had this post ready for some time, and also wanted to say Hi
after having been away more than a week, I agreed with myself to post it now.

This very beautiful and amazing packet arrived start January from my dearest friend JULIA.

I know most of you already knows this wonderful artist, but if not,- click her name, and visit her!

Isen`t it a beautiful card,capturing the quiet white christmas?

Those two adorable necklaces, Julia made herself for me, they are so gorgeous,and with so many sweet little 
charms -I love the brass tone of the metal.

Julia also made me this beautiful christmas wreath,filled with laces-old and new ones-and
so lovely with the old music sheets,headlines  behind!
And OH have you seen the wespnests piece!!!

My dear friend knew I SOOO wanted to find one for myself, and generously 
shared a piece from one she found herself!
The little wonderful decorated box , hold 2 gorgeous snailhouses,
Julia also found where she now live. I`m so thankfull for recieving
all those treasures!

On top of all this there were also lovely bathing products -sweet little charms, and a scented bag,
making the box smell wonderful, when I opened up.
Thankyou my dear lovely Julia, you gifted me so many gorgeous pieces, from your heart-
and I love every  artpiece, both from your hands-and from nature .

Now off to bed with some hot tea, a lot of paper for my nose,
and hopefully I can sleep better than last night, where I couldn`t breathe!

Love and hugs from Dorthe

Åe nej, er det nu din tur? hvis det er den samme influenza som jeg har kan jeg fortælle dig den er "sejlivet" og svær at komme af med igen, så jeg vil nøjes med at ønske dig god bedring. knus morkaren.

Oh dearie! I hope you feel better soon! I hate colds and know just how you feel! But at least you have all these treasures to keep you smiling, what a wonderful lot of goodies! :)

Beautiful pieces all of them dear Dorthe! Hope you will feel better very soon, this flue seems to hit so many people, but at least it only came after your wonderful little interlude with your beautiful grand daughter. Big hugs!!!

Emilie said...

Kære Dorthe.

Jeg håber, din sygdom og forkølelse er ved at være på retur? Og at du havde nogle dejlige dage sammen med Mathilde?

Tak for dine søde hilsner på min blog. Jeg får ikke blogget helt så meget for tiden, for der er simpelthen så mange andre ting, der fylder mere i mit liv lige nu. Jeg er tilbage i Danmark igen og nyder at være hjemme hos mine kære. Og jeg har det godt.

Hvis jeg fortsat ikke giver lyd fra mig så ofte, som jeg ellers plejer, så er det ikke fordi jeg har glemt dig, men blot fordi, der er mange andre ting, der tager min tid.

Mange kærlige hilsner og knus,

Gaby Bee said...

Lovely gifts indeed! Hope you are feeling better very soon, my dear friend!

Hugs to you,

Marlynn said...

Dearest Dorthe

Oh no you poor darling - I hope by the time you read this message you are feeling a little better.

Julia's beautiful parcel was just what you needed - some blog loving - she is the sweetest lady, I know!

I had a summer flu bug and I'm only just over it now - it just keeps coming back....
Garlic, honey and lemon helps!

I hope you're all snuggled up in bed and Mr DLL is giving you lots of TLC (tender loving care)!
I'm sure he is,

Love and hugs from your New Zealand friend
