Look what came to my door, on a very grey and cold day!
A packet from  my dear friend  LIZ

So wonderfully filled with beautiful things!

Apart from being a wonderful friend, Liz is also a wonderful artist!
Look at this lovely card ,she made me. 
The flowers are so beautiful with the old birds drawings around.

OH , and my heart shipped a beat when opening this ...
The most sweet and beautiful 1950 copy ,of the old real
wax communion crowns- isen`t it wonderful!!!

A closer look of  the lovely whiteness with a touch of rosa.
I never thought I should see one in my own hands,-dearest Liz 
you gifted me with  something I thought I could only  dream of !
I love it , thankyou from my heart,sweetie.

Also I love those old German porzelain dolls ,and am so
happy to recieve them, as they are not easy, if
at all  possibly to find in Denmark.

On top of these fantastic gifts, my sweet generous
friend, also send me a wonderful old French school book.
My other photoes were not good, -but inside
it is filled with pages of  old dayes  slanting handwriting examples,
for the students to watch and then try to rewrite,in a notebook.
And I love it, -it is so gorgeous for collages,
only I will not destroy it, but only make scans :-)

Theese wonderful things were also inside,-braid,buttons ,wall paper,
and see the mending wool card, that Liz explained me were made
 to cut from, whenever a costumer askes for a piece of wool to mend
 something with.Here we did not have such , only little ones finished to buy! 

Thank you my lovely dear friend, I am so touched over,
all this amaxing gifts from you, they are so very special to me,
and you made my grey day so happy and joyfilled.

We still have snow and cold in Denmark, and the sun is waiting
to show it`s face where I live, I hope it will soon be a little
more springlike.
Dear friends, thankyou so much for all your wonderful comments,
on my last post, I send you warm 
And wishes you all a wonderful new week.

What a gorgeous parcel you have just received from dear Liz enough to brighten anyone's grey day!
That communion crown I know you love so very much - I wonder if it will adorn a very special doll??!!
The German porcelain dolls would be a treat for me also - they are gorgeous and, likewise, we don't see them here either!
I know you will create some magic too with all the extra buttons, braid and wall paper as well as that special French Vocabulaire.
It's all a lovely treat and I know
how much you will enjoy it all dear friend.
With loving hugs and kisses,

Dear Dorthe
What an inspiring package from Liz - I can understand your excitement!!!
I love everything, especially that French book - I looked for those at brocantes when I was there last year but I think they are hard to find now.
The First Communion garland is so sweet - I know you will have a special place for it!
Liz is a very kind friend – she knows how to lift your spirits!!!
love and hugs

My goodness Dorthe, a fantastically beautiful surprise from Liz in this gloomy weather! I rejoice with you! Especially the Frozen Charlotte Dolls are great, because they are so difficult to get.

I am glad to see all your treasures you received on a gray day! It won't be much longer I promise. It is snowing here today - and the lakes below me are still frozen...but I did hear that robin in my yard last week! ;)


Chenille Cottage said...

Hello my dearest Dorothe,
How wonderful of your friend to send you such pretty treasures. I, too, am awestruck by the precious communion crown. Just to think that a darling little wore it when she took her first Holy Communion.

Thank you for stopping by and for your dear comments. You are such a blessing to me.

It's still winter where I live here in the high desert of Oregon. We are expecting snow this week. I'm a snow lover!

Have a lovely week,
Carolynn xoxo

Hi sweetie,
Liz did you right! She is a sweet and talented lady. I love those communion wreaths as well, that one is lovely. I saw your picture of the ocean on FB yesterday. So peaceful and wintery looking. It got cold again here today. I'm not ready for summer, loving the cold.
