Another week have gone, and already it is saturday again.
I created this collaged hanger for a friend, and hope it will soon
arrive at her doorstep.

The wonderful image is from that I fell
in love with when seing dear  NANCY  from
using them in a beautiful creation.

I used different pieces,  like old laces, both handmade 
and machine made- papers- the top of the flower was 
attatched a gift from a dear friend. The sisters are transferred to cloth.

The beautiful nature heart, is actually  seaweed of a kind, having these lovely
endings to it- isen`t nature amazing! 

Like " my " Baltic sea this week ,where we had a huge storm,
with waves very high-my fhoto does not show it really, but it 
was a fantastic sight- Today the sun shines beautifully, but they
already again have "promised" us a huge snowstore the coming dayes!
I know many of you are screaming for spring,too...
lets hope together it will soon be here.

Welcome to new followers, I am happy to see you arrive,and 
follow me, and try to get around to say hello.

Sending you all precious friends much
love and hugs.

Good morning my dear Dorthe,
What a beautiful wall collage you have created here for some very lucky person. The image from DCS is so very sweet. They do have some beautiful sheets there!The colours are so vintage, beautiful papers and love the heart fashioned from the sea speaking of which I see some big big waves after a storm! The crashing waves must be so loud!
It's wonderful that you can possibly soak up this warming sun to fill your heart with joy!
Sending some Autumnal stillness in beautiful soft soft light with love for a lovely weekend!
Your Suzy

Dear Dorthe, this is so beautiful! I love it in all its vintage goodness. The different layers and textures so seamlessly combined. The transfer of the vintage image onto the fabric is perfect, I so admire people who can manage that!! The little seaweed heart is the perfect finishing touch! I hope this weekend will bring you lots of sunshine still before the next snow arrives!!

Such a beautiful collage, Dorthe! I'm hoping for spring to happen, soon, too.

Jayne said...

What a beautiful collage you have created. I love the image of the sisters and the seaweed heart so delicate. i am sure your friend will absolutely love it. The weather has been similar here, no beach left just huge waves! Spring is on its way I'm sure, the sun is shining today. Happy weekend Jayne x

Happy Weekend!

Dorthe- another one of your beautiful collage creations-- they are always so amazing! You are staying awfully busy in your craft room! The Baltic Sea is beautiful-- looks SO cold! I hope your winter will soon be turning to spring!

Gabriela said...

It is beautiful!Thanks for sharing the pic of the Baltic see!

Dorthe Dear you newest lace collage is dreamy. I adore all the elements you have incorporated...including the natural seaweed piece. Stay safe and warm in your next snowstorm. Sunshine Smiles sent your way...

Angela Richardson said...

A really lovely collage Dorthe, I love all the lace and pretty additions.
There is no sign of an improvement in the weather here. it's still cold and wet, but the birds are singing and the days are getting longer so maybe Spring is just waiting in the wings.
Hugs, Angela.x

Bettina Breiding Hansen said...

Kære ven - hvor er den bare smuk - du er så fantastisk til at "komponere" - elsker billedet!!

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

That's such a beautiful collage, my dear Dorthe. Your friend will be very happy to receive such a wonderful gift.
I'm sorry to hear that there still is no real spring weather coming up for you. It had gotten cold again during the nights here but it warms up at daytime. With all the rain it doesn't feel very springlike though either.
Have a lovely week, sweetie!
Big hugs og mange kys,

Unknown said...

Oh Dorthe, you have again made quite fantastic artwork! Really adorable! Your friend must be very happy about it.

Thanks for the sea photo. The week before last, it was almost 20 degrees here and it suddenly snowed last week. This is so crazy! When spring starts?

Minna Perälä said...

Hi Dorthe!

Your collage looks wonderful! Every piece fits so well together! I love that little heart in it!

Beautiful picture of the sea! I never get tired to watch waves becoming to shore, and the sound of relaxing.

I hope the storm will soon be over and sun shines for you in the blue sky. Here in Finland it´s freezing cold even -26 degrees, can you imagine!
In the news I heard that there hasn´t been such cold days in March for 50 years.. What a spring :-/

Have a great week!

Terri said...

That is a lovely vintage piece you have created!
I agree with you, Nature is amazing! Where you live you get up close and personal with Nature! Living so close to the sea you must experience some powerful weather and beautiful sights.
We are having many flowering trees and bulbs bloom. So I think spring will arrive on time for us. I hope it is not too far away for you too : ) Hopefully your snow won't be too much. Maybe it will be the last hurrah.

This is so beautiful, I love the image of the little girls, so sweet, the writing just gives it such a soft touch, and those wonderful laces, you do such gorgeous work! I am always in awe of your creations...
Hearts to you!

Sophie said...

Dorthe, das ist so bezaubernd, so wundervoll.
Mir fehlen die Worte.
Diese feinen Arbeiten die du immer machst...
Ich bewundere das sehr.

Liebe Grüße

Erika said...

Guten Morgen, liebe Dorthe!
Danke schön für Deinen Besuch auf meinem Blog und Deine lieben Worte!
So nice to read you! Deine Nähmaschine ist kaputt? Oh oh oh, ich wünsche Dir, dass sie bald wieder läuft, liebe Freundin. Ohne nähen ist es doch ziemlich .... hmmm without words :)

Dein collaged hanger ist so schön geworden. Sicher wird es eine große Freude für Deinen Freund. Aber noch schöner ist das Bild von der Ostsee. Ich liebe hohe Wellen.
Hier schneit es weiter. Das gab es noch nie hier, in den letzten Jahren. Meine gute Laune geht langsam dahin :( Wie damals, als auf Island der Vulkan den Himmel dunkel machte.

Ich sende Dir viele liebe Grüße, Knuddel und Küsse, meine liebe Dorthe! Thinking about you and your lovely little island.
Deine Erika

Unknown said...

Girlie, you never fail to amaze!!! I love the many layers of lacey goodness you use here, SO PERFECT!!! Some lucky gal will be squealing soon!

Hej Dorthe Du skønne
Håber i har brande nok , men kan ikke fotstille mig andet , at henning ikke har sørget for det :)
Sikke en masse søde skønne gaver , men du må snart bygge ud søde så det kan få en fin plas.
I dag er jeg alene i butikken og jeg renger med jeg kan lave lige hvad jeg vil , for snestormen er lige rundt om hjørnet.
Tak for din søde hilsen kæmpe varme krammer Mette.

Dearest Dorthe
You've created from your heart a beautiful collage for your special friend.
The old hand made lace looks exquisite and I think I've got that sweet sisters image too somewhere (my cupboard needs a tidy up so I can find things)!!
Only you dear Dorthe would think of a seaweed heart - how beautiful, Mother Nature creates beauty for us to find and use.

I clicked on your photos and those waves on the Baltic Sea are GINORMOUS! I do a lot of yachting so I can tell – how wonderful.
You will be looking forward to the Spring days so you can walk along the sand finding your treasured driftwood pieces for your art – I hope it comes soon for you!
Love and hugs
Shane ♥

Hello dear Dorthe, hope you're well and hanging in there with the snow storms, I'm so much dying for spring too! Your collage is so beautiful, with the gorgeous image you found. I LOVE the texture of the net-like lace on the left. And the beautiful handwritings and flower. And is that really real seaweed? That's stunning! Nature is so wonderful and amazing indeed. Love your stormy sea photo, thank you for sharing with us. I always think it's wonderful to see a little bit of the area where blogfriends live.
Thank you dear Dorthe for your sweet comments on both my blog and flickr pages, it's always a pleasure to hear from you.
Big hug and happy Tuesday!

Sarina said...

Hello Dear Dorthe,

This is absolutely lovely, again.
Great photograph too.



Rebecca said...

Hi Sweetie
Just popping in to say hello, I rarely get to visit these days.
The sea is so beautiful, your view is just amazing. Our weather is far from spring here, 18 degrees with high winds this morning but the sun it out so I am happy.
Your collage is beautiful, I love the seaweed heart.
Blessings today

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

~*~Patty S said...

What a gorgeous creation Dorthe and your seaweed heart is extra special ... I know that Nancy will adore what you created for her!

Your description of the wild seas is wonderful ... I hope spring finds you very soon ... here in the Washington DC area it is very chilly, the daffodils are shivering in the cold on this first day of spring ;)

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Your creations are always so lovely, Dorthe! It is certainly beautiful where you live...the sea photo is beautiful! Thanks so much for stopping by!

June said...

Hi sweet Dorthe! I love your newest collage and the image you used on it. Just so precious.
The photo of the sea is beautiful and I can see the high waves. It is cold here today and now is starting to snow again. Soon however, I know we will have spring :)
many hugs from me...

Dear Dorthe
It is late but I wanted to catch-up and see if you had a recent post and you did not disappoint.
Oh this is sublime, that adorable image (I must look at the link) and the colours you used and the flower you created. Whoever you sent this to will treasure for a lifetime as it is so special.
This weekend I would like to spend time on some Springtime projects, as you know I am not creating as much at the moment and so I am late with projects I want to make.
Will catch-up with you over the weekend my friend.
P.S. A beautiful photograph!

Jillayne said...

Oh, I love a stormy sea! Your photograph of it is amazing, and I would love to stand in front of it and feel the air as it moves with teh waves - you live in such a splendid place Dorthe!
The collage you have made for your friend is very sweet, especially with the added seaweed heart - so very special...
