I alwayes love to see what my dear friend LIZ  from Lululiz in Vintageland have to offer in her Etsy shop,
and therefore follows both her blogs. I love the many French religious pieces she tracks up,
when on her tours there, and have once again purchased a beautiful
old thing from her .Please visit her wonderful shop, filled with beautiful and exiting finds!

Here is my beautiful silver piece with Virgin Mary, isen`t it lovely.

And a very lovely friend is Liz, too !!!--see this so beautiful tag she also send me , with
the old papers above!!

The beautiful card,old stamps and labels and the loveliest pieces to add to my 
creations, the blue flowers I have added to one of my book pieces :-)

Thankyou so much my dear Liz, you alwayes makes my purchases to the loveliest
gifts from your hands and sweet heart.

And here are then some new pages to my book, that I so enjoy to create!
Here I used a dried flower under a piece of Mica , and a bit of rust found on a tour to the beach!

Here I used a photo from last summer of a wonderful black- birds nest with 5
eggs,--I painted over the photo in some places and added a plastic piece
I have embossed ,on top of the photo-then some stamps and a bit of 
nature roots!

This page is painted ,  ceveral  times,-- and then I added
a piece of  (gold) trasch-some seaweed and a glass piece, which have "dansed" in 
The Baltic Sea for many years

I think I will soon have to stop making pages ,that the book will not be too heavy :-)

I want to thank, new followers ,--you are all so very appriciated !

And to all my wonderful friends- I hope you are feeling good, and wishes you
a happy rest of your day,-and /or evening- sending
you many hugs and love.

Dear Dorthe
Thank you for sharing more pages.
The mica (I love mica) brings texture and a sense of vintage to this page and I love the piece of rust, that is a wonderful addition.
What beautiful purchases, I am sure they will bring peace to you everytime you look at them and the beautiful tag Liz created for you.

Hi Sweet Friend!
First of all I am crazy about the silver religious piece from Liz. OMG, I would put that on a bottle for sure. I know you'll do something wonderful with it.
Now to your pages. Wow, everyday you add something new to inspire me! That project is amazing, but I have to say the 'cycles' one is my very fave. Maybe it's that piece that looks like cracked plaster, or the treasure from the sea, or the way it all looks clumped together. Whatever, it's beautiful to me.
Have a great day.

Celestina Marie said...

Dear Dorthe,
Just lovely as always. Liz is such a talent and her shop is filled with gorgeous designs from her talented hands. The Virgin Mary you purchased is beautiful.

I love your book page. All the details make it so perfect and unique. What a treasure your book will be.
I am always inspired by your creations.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, CM

Happy Spring to you, dear Friend!

Terri said...

Dorthe, I am *swooning* over your book pages! Oh my oh my! Both are just so perfect, delicate, beautiful...
I it hard to describe in words the type of beauty you have captured here...just know, it is rare beauty.

Unknown said...

Dear Dorthe,
you really got quite wonderful gifts of dear Liz. I rejoice with you! Your pages are lovely and made ​​with lots of love. You are just great!
I wish you a nice weekend. The newscaster said that on weekend starts the spring ......??

Jillayne said...

More beautiful pages Dorthe - your book will be lovely, but if you like making pages so much, and have many more ideas, you could start working on a library!
It is always so wonderful to see how creative you are with your pictures and finds from the beach - sea glass from the Baltic - sigh....

Ephemera said...

Hi Dorthe, what lovely purchases and gifts from Liz, and how exquisite are your wonderfully crafted pages, a real delight. XX

AppleApricot Wen said...

Hello dear friend, I LOVE your beautiful new bookpages. Just start a new one dear when you think this one is becoming too heavy. I think book making is quite addictive :) You mixed all the different elements and media so wonderful. The painted background of the sea remnants is amazing, so gorgeous, I love the colours. And dear Liz has truly spoilt you again with some beautiful candy. Her tag is so gorgeous too.
Big hug and wonderful rest of the weekend to you, Wendy

Vicki Boster said...

Oh Dorthe- this is going to be the most gorgeous book ever. Every page makes me just gasp- each more beautiful than the next. I love that your inspirations come from found objects-- "one persons trash"--- is truly your treasure. The birds nest page is beyond beautiful-/ my favorite you know.,

Your tag from Liz is lovely-- she is amazing in her creations as well-- always bringing beautiful pieces of her art to life.

I can hardly wait to see your book in it's entirety- what an amazing project!


Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

You always have such beautiful goodies on your posts, Dorthe, and your book pages are looking beautiful!

Lynn said...

Your journal pages are so beautiful Dorthe, I so enjoy seeing them :)

suziqu's thread works said...

Greetings my Dearest Dorthe,
What a beautiful piece of the Virgin Mary you have purchased from Liz - it is very special, along with her tag and bits of ephemera!
Your next two pages continue to draw us in with your love of the Baltic Sea using more found objects that have floated to your shore.
If only I could view your precious first book for real and feel and touch the pages there!!!
What a wonderful and personal book you have created to keep and treasure.
Much love and thoughts travelling across the sea too you,
