I recieved a rather large box from The Netherlands some weeks ago, and was at once
so exitied as I know when Yvonne sends me a gift, they are alwayes amazingly beautiful!!
And this is surely a fantastic proofe of that!

If you don`t know Yvonne please visit her blog ,by clicking her name!!!

See this gorgeous bag YVONNE made me , I totally gasped when 
seing it, it is so very beautiful, I love my name tags on the flap- which
when opens up ,reveals this gorgeous front filled with little pieces of lace! and the
beautifully rosy fabric  inside!

And as if this was not all a girl like me could dream of, another gift was there,and 
I have to say dearest Yvonne, that I gasped even as much over your fabolous book!
Thankyou my dear friend, I am still overwhelmed recieving those
most amazing gifts- 

(PLEASE CLICK the photoes for bigger images )

This is the most lovely front,-

I so love the girl in the sweet frame-all the laces and bits of all kind of
beauty sewed inside the romantic and gorgeous book!
I will let the photoes talk for themselves !
it is truly a dream-book.

Aren`t those pages ,the most marvelous little stories, all in themselves!
So beautifully told with lovely fabrics, and images, sweet pieces like this butterfly,
and here and there Yvonne`s wonderful embroidered  words!

Like here, and see all the layers in every page, and the beautiful colours,and laces she used!

Can this really be mine !!! YES it is
and I`m so thankfull, sweet dear friend!

This darling hanger is now in my kitchen on a cupboard in exatly the same 
colours -blue- I love it !

and also those pretty embroidered birds and the wonderful fabric!

Isen`t it fantastic, I have never seen anything like it !
And lastly some for me to use, little words and amazing butterflyes ,
Yvonne also maschine embroidered!

I am so very happy for my amazing gifts, and thanks you
from my heart , my dear Yvonne, you are a wonderful friend-
and I send you love and hugs !!! THANKYOU sweet!!


Also thankyou to new followers, I hope we can still find each other when the reading list from
Google dissapears this first of June- (I might be wrong here, as Alison told me it is only July!!!!)
But  we should all consider what to do ,when it has gone!!
Please start following me  from  BLOGLOVING  or another possibility,-  DEAR FRIENDS !

Absolutely stunning creations from Yvonne - what a joy to receive such works of art!

And you just scared me... I think it's JULY 1st that we lose the Google Reader!! I'm so upset about it. Really don't like the bloglovin interface, or feedly much - and then if they close Feedburner, even the emails start to go wrong - it's all so confusing.

Oh Dorthe, how amazing that your friend sent you those gifts so specially made for you. I love your initials embroidered. Her book is page after page of gorgeous creations, each one a work of art in their own right. The fabrics, the butterflies, it is like your birthday and Christmas rolled into one. Jaynex

Dearest Dorthe
What a very special gift from Yvonne!
She is such a talented fabric artist and a very kind generous friend too.

WOW - all of her pages are "out of this world" and I know you will be picking it up many times to enjoy looking at all the beautiful details.

I'm drooling over the french fabric, and the bag is an "Yvonne original". I love the lace sampler on the bag.....

Wishing you a wonderful weekend and I hope it's sunny and warm so you can re-energise after your long winter!
I'm off to France in a couple of weeks... can't wait!

Good morning my sweet Dorthe,
Finally I'm here to share in the viewing of your most wonderful gifts from dear Yvonne. The bag was designed especially with your in mind and it makes it even more special.
The little book is incredibly beautiful as only Yvonne could create in her sweet style using superb images, laces, doilies and rose fabrics.
I really know about the joy in receiving such a special gift dearest friend and wish you many hours in appreciating these wonderful things. The birds nests are so unique and the fabrics are so very beautiful and rare.
My love and biggest hugs go to you with this,
Suzy xoxox

Det er simpelthen sådan nogle flotte gaver, du modtager fra alle verdens hjørner. Jeg er virkelig imponeret over, hvad både dig og dine blog-veninder kan fremtrylle af smukke kreationer. Jeg kan godt forstå, du er glad og beæret over at modtage sådanne kreationer.

Vi har haft fint vejr her de sidste dage - især i lørdags. I går, søndag, blæste det dog helt vanvittigt meget, så selvom vi havde solskin, var det en kold fornøjelse at opholde sig udenfor.

Jeg har ikke selv sået mine blomster, så det er nok derfor, de allerede står så flot. Når jeg engang får en have, vil jeg gerne købe frø og se blomsterne vokse op, men denne gang har jeg "snydt" lidt og købt dem. :-)

Fortsat rigtig god uge til dig fra mig.

Guten Morgen, liebe Dorthe!

Wonderful treasures zeigst Du uns! I love this Journal and the beautiful blue Butterfly! Wonderful Colors and stunning styles. So schön, liebe Freundin und es passt alles so schön zur Jahreszeit!
Alles ist so frisch und neu im Garten, ich liebe es und könnte den ganzen Tag im Gartencenter sein und neue Blumen kaufen. Aber, so groß ist unser Garten nicht.
So male ich ein wenig, fotografiere und schreibe Gedichte. So wunderschön ist die Sonne für meine Seele!

Ich hoffe, dass Deine Blumen bald alle blühen und Deine Seele auch :)

Thank you so much also for your kind words on my blog. I am so glad to read you, dear friend. Your words are like little flowers with a bright shine of love and happiness.
I love you, dear friend! Hugs and love to you - from your friend Erika
