One of my latest little collages  made with lovely old laces  and the frame 
from an old photo album!
The image is a copy I got from a kind friend whom collects
old photoes !!

There are also a few lovely paper pieces, from
old magazines and wallpaper!!

Have you seen anything as beautiful as these salmon
coloured poppies!!!
I love them and have had them in my garden for some years now,
where they gets bigger every year !!

Sweet friends , my grandkids and daughter will be
spending time with us the rest of this week, so excuse me
for not being on your blogs untill monday again!
I will miss you, but am SOOO happy to be seing
my little family !!

Warmest hugs and love, to you and a 
wonderful rest of the week all!!

Such a beautiful collage, Dorthe - and I also wanted to say how wonderful the doll is that you made for Lynne's birthday - utterly exquisite, like all your work. Hope you have a wonderful time with your family!

Kære Dorthe.

Det er en yndig collage, du har lavet. Du er nu dygtig til de neutrale toner, for det bliver aldrig kedeligt, netop fordi du er så god til at sætte spændende materialer sammen, så det giver liv og gør værket interessant.

Og bedårende blomster!
Det er så dejligt, at alting er grønt og at sommeren er på vej.

Rigtig god fornøjelse sammen med din familie. Nyd det.

Knus, Emilie

Dorthe I hope you will have the most wonderful time with your family, enjoy every single second of it!!
Big Hugs

Sikken et skønt ophæng du har lavet, med blonder og vintage knapper, og dine valmuer er utrolig smukke, men man kan ikke plukke dem uden de "taber hovedt" knus morkaren.

A very beautiful collage my dear Dorthe, your poppies are so lovely, også selvom de er lyserøde, det gør ikke noget med blomster, håber du får nogle dejlige dage med familien.

Hello Sweet Friend of mine,
What a stunning Vintage collage Dorthe. I love the vintage frame, the photo and all the added bits of paper and lace all coming together in your unique style! It warms my heart!

I have never seen that colored poppy before in shades of Salmon! Did you grow this from seed or is it growing wild. We have a Mauve colored poppy that self seeds throughout the garden every Spring here.

Hope you are having the best time with your little family and that you have a most wonderful Garden Party sweet friend!

PS Check out my latest post!!!

Big hugs and love to you,

I've never seen those poppies before Dorthe, and they are very lovely indeed. It's so nice to see pictures of flowers now, instead of snow everywhere.
I love your latest collage - the picture is so cute, and all your bits of lace make it special.
Have a wonderful visit with your family!

Hello sweet Dorthe! Your collage is gorgeous with the beautiful vintage frame and laces. And the beautiful photo too.

Never saw poppies in salmon colour before no, they're amazing.

I hope you had a great time with your grandkids and daughter. But I'm very sure you had :) I'm sorry to have been MIA lately dear. Been so busy at home, we're in the middle of a renovation and big clean up.

Big hug to you and wishing you a wonderful week. ~ Wendy
