Aren`t we ready for spring ,all of us having had snow now for what seems month`s ?

I am!  which showes in my lavender pillow with one of the spring signs:
a sweet bird !The pilow is totally filled with lavender and lined with
lovely laces!

Last week I recieved the sweetes spring letter from a dear friend of mine:
BETTINA   -she is a wonderful filter-and send me this
sweet packed!!!!

LOOK what was inside ...the sweetest spring egg ,with the 
most lovely little pink birdie on it`s paper nest-made in felt.
I love it !!! Thankyou dearest friend .
Please go visit Bettina`s new blog ,by clicking the link above ,to
see more sweetnes, I think she can be overspoken to write
in english ,if she gets some visitors from outside Denmark :-)

Also I want to show you the most wonderful ATC that I swapped
with another dear friend KIMBERLY 
If you visit Kimberly`s blog,you can find a list to write your name on ,for 
a lovely swap with her.
Isen`t this angel ATC beautiful- I love it-

And also LOVE the most adorable heart sweet Kimberly also send me,
as an extra gift,with the card and paper flower.
Thank you my dear Kimberly, you know I admire your art,and
love all you make!

Here is the ATC I made for Kimberly,using a bit of 
paper,fabric,flower,and die-cuts.

And just another photo of my little pillow, to wish you all
some wonderful last dayes of February!

I know mine will be both wonderful and happy, as I`m going to celebrate
my sweet grandkid Mathilde`s 6 years birthday tomorrow- and spending
some dayes with my dear little family.
So my dear sweet friends-see you next week,when I am "allone" again.

Dear Friend
It is funny that you post a lavender pillow as I posted one today at The Stampsmith Blog (I will post on my personal blog tomorrow). Imagine, we think alike but your pillow is so full of the beauty of nature. I love the neutral tones and all that glorious lace.
What beautiful and artful gifts you received from dear friends.
Wishes to you and Dorthe, I will speak soon.

Have a nice week without snow:-)

Здравей Дороти, малката възглавничка е много сладка. Представям си как ухае, обожавам аромата на лавандула.
При нас времето е чудесно и почти нямахме зима, затова ти пращам слънчеви и топли поздрави от България.

Dorthe, the little pillow is gorgeous, I love the way you have used so many different little pieces of lace to edge it with. and the image is so sweet.
The ATCs are great, both the one you received and the one you sent. Every week Kimberly posts the swap I want to put my hand up, but I have already swapped once, sob sob.
