                     please go and visit her and her blog, and say hello.

We have known each other for ceveral years now, and often send mails and 
little notes to each other.
Dear Paula also send me a christmas packet filled to the brim with beautiful things.
Look at this sweetie, in her stocking, she is a perfect and so beautiful  little doll, in her lovely dress, -so adorable- and made by my dear friend.
I love her.

A so lovely white mitten ornament, with laces and sweet  seambinding.

And OH MY look at my new bracelet, I adore this beautiful cuff,
made for me, with old beautiful laces and materials,and it fits me perfect,
dearest Paula.

Paula also painted the wonderful lady on the box, she looks much like the dolls she  also
sews, and that you one day may find in her new Etsy shop. Click here to see!

I love the beautiful box, and the wonderful seam bindings and velvet,and old buttons!

To my delight I also unwrapped this most cute and beautifully sewn little cat
pincussion, and the most wonderful strawberries.
All made in the most gorgeous old red wool.
I do have another pincussion Paula, made, that I purchased from her shop
with the sweetest bird on it,and I love them both!

Here a tiny wiev of some lovely pearls and lace in the box.

And this is pure old beauty, the most gorgeous and fragile ,lovely
old  tulle laces.

So much and so wonderful,and special. And something I 
hardly never finds here on fleamarkets !
Thankyou sweetie!

Papers with birds and eggs, lots of them!!
SO pretty and some I have wanted for long !!

Wonderful old cabinet cards and photoes

-stamps, white cards,an old sweet birds card, and little papers
 to use for collages and cards, and an acrylic pad!

And more creating goodness, a punch and wonderful TimHolz materials,
glitter,wooden spools, a key , SO MANY GOODIES!

My dearest precious Paula, thankyou from my heart, this was a beautiful gift from your heart,
-I know that, and I am so thankful for all you send me,
and even more for our  beautiful friendship, I love you!


Also thankyou to all you dear friends whom have send me loving 
greetings for New Year,- you are all so much appriciated and

Kære Dorte, først tak fordi det var mig du havde lyst til at sende en nytårs hilsen, nytårsnat, det blev jeg både glad og rørt over. og så dine fine gaver, dejlige skatte, dukken med de fine lyserøde kinder, og alt det andet, da jeg så de dejlige blonder tænkte jeg på du havde klaget over i ikke rigtig havde noget i loppemarkeder, så dejligt nogen tænker på dig og så, så lang vejs fra. knus morkaren.

Oh my word! such treasures - lovely handmade gifts but you must be a special friend to her too for her to part with such goodies ... the lace is absolutely gorgeous.

Wonderful creations and lots of yummy stuff to play with! You asked about that material from my DIY stamps. It is foam sheet, very common craft material and available on every craft store. Have fun by creating stamps of your own dearest Dorthe!!
