As some of you might know by now, I love to collect rosaries, and my sweet friend LIZ  alwayes seems
to fing ,just what I can`t live without :-)!!

Aren`t they amazingly beautiful,-I think so!!!

As the dearest friend Liz is , she had packed them inside this gorgeous box, that she created herself ,-see that wonderful old image, and the laces!!

And inside more goodness,- I love the trims and braids,-

on top of the sweetest decorated box buttom -I adore Liz`s craftmannship- and her lovely
romantic style, and this is the most beautiful box, that I will save lovely pieces inside ,alwayes !!
Thankyou my dearest Liz, so much!!! you are such a treasured friend, and alwayes so very generous and lovely!!

Beautiful roses from my garden, decorated a table on my birthday this monday!!
I has a most lovely day with my husbond ,family, and some friends!
AND I recieved amazingly wonderful gifts from near and far away, too.
As their are many dear friends whom so lovingly gifted me, I will show the gifts , as they arrived,-

So first here, from my dearest loved  SUZY , from  far away on the other side of the world!! but alwayes near
in spirit and a helping hand!!

This is her loving card to me, beautiful  outside and in, with wonderful laces and images,
and her beautiful stamps!!

Suzy made me a most gorgeous bag, -a bag for going visiting with a phone, and a comb or such little things inside- or for storing little pieces inside , hanging lovingly in my room!!! I love it and it`s shabby look,
so romantic and beautiful, in nature colours.

Isen`t it gorgeous, with all the layers of laces ,and her handmade bloom!!
I had to take photoes in a very dark room ,(bad weather ) with the light on, so the photoes dosen`t do Suzy`s amazing work justice, I`m sorry my friend!!

She also sweetly send me a lovely collection of laces and fabrics, with those 4 metal forms
from dayes gone by!!----

and another fabric rose, and two beautifully stamped muslin pieces!

It was such  beautiful gifts , all adorable and I treasure them from my heart , my dearest Suzy!
Thank you so much and most for your true and wonderful friendship !!!
I send you love and hugs across the oceans, sweetie !!!

From another very dear and loved friend, VIOLA I also recieved stunning gifts!!
Just loook at her card, isen`t it wonderful, !!

And a very big surprice , : the sweetest doll , called Dotti waited paitently ,for me to unpack her 
after a long journey and dayes here in my home waiting for the birthday to arrive!!
Isen`t she the sweetest little huggable dolly , Thankyou so much Viola, for
creating a doll for me,-I love her ,and she will keep me compagny here in my room!

Oh and this stunning tag purse, just truly beautiful!!

And with an amazing tag inside ,-see the paper pearls ,Viola created!!!

And last but certainly not least a beautiful collage,  wonderfully made with laces and 
sweet adds from old books, and trims!!
I love the hanger, and 

the wing , the lovely flower and old sign !!

Thankyou my dearest "old" friend ,so very much - thankyou for your ongoing friendship and
most beautiful gifts , I send you love and hugs Viola ,liebe . 

The last photo for today, I shot on Midsummer Evening 23/6 when we had the 
almost biggest full moon ever!!
Here it shines beautifully on my yellow roses , late night!

Hi Sweetie,
What beautiful gifts you got! I love them all. The bags are awesome! Would put that to good use. And all the supplies, I know they will soon become part of your wonderful art. Happy belated birthday!

Emilie said...

Kære Dorthe.

Som altid: Smukke, smukke ting, du har modtaget. Jeg glæder mig til at se, hvilke nye kreationer, der kommer ud af dem fra din hånd.

Det gør mig ondt at høre, at din mor er dårlig. Jeg håber, du har mulighed for at være ved hendes side og at hun snart får det bedre.

Jeg har været ude at rejse (sammen med min egen mor), og derfor har jeg ikke været rundt i Blogland længe. Det er også derfor, jeg først ser dine seneste indlæg nu her og ikke har givet lyd fra mig før.

Knus, Emilie.

Dear Friend
What a beautiful post, filled with heartwarming birthday messages from your friends who live in all corners of the world.
It was one exquisite creation after the other. I did see that wonderful doll on Viola's Blog and I wondered if it was for you :)
You deserve all of this because you are so generous yourself, with your creations and friendship.
P.S. Will chat soon!
