This beautiful heart hanger was given to me from my dear BETTINA , my Danish friend
living on Bornholm too, and not that far away from me!!

Isen`t it the most gorgeous piece made with bettina`s favorite medium : wool !
I love it with it`s embroidery.

And then look at this goodies, that she dearly gifted me, after knowing my husbond
gave me a needlefelting maschine for my birthday. 
Have you seen all those gorgeous colours of wool!!
Soon I hope to get more time, to play :-)
Thankyou my dear friend,- for your lovely gifts.

And from ROBIN another dear soul friend, I recieved a gift ,holding one  the most favorite dolls in my life
packed so lovely with this card and sweet tag.

Here she is my sweet  Checker Spot fey!!
Isen`t she just wonderful!!

Robin is an amazingly gifted dolls artist and story teller, I have been in love
with her and her dolls for years now, and both she and the dolls still makes me feel
loved and makes me smile !!

All those beautiful tags and a stamp, were also in her wonderful gift.
Thankyou my dear friend, so very much!!

For today lastly,- I recieved another oh so beautiful gift from my so lovely friend LYNNE 
Lynne has become a dear and close friend,too, and her gorgeous pillow
made me swoon. 

Please click all photoes to see the details ....dosen`t it look so beautiful!!

I love lace, naturel colours and romance ,and Lynne knows that and made me this beauty!
Also I found the sweetest little canvas ,on it`s own  easel-
decorated with lace, and stamped with a word very dear to me---:friends!!
I`m happy to be your friend, Lynne, and treasure our relationship very much!

The wonderful stamp, was extra in my package,  with some
of my favorite items,-bird and flowers!!
Thankyou so much my dear .

I still have a few gifts to show you, but will leave them for another time,-they came from England and The Netherlands and are from very dear friends too!!

Here before saying goodnight a photo from my garden with a beautiful rose bush.
I`m so happy that no roedeers are eating them this year!!!

From saturday almost untill first week in August, my dearest grand children will be visiting 
which will make my life filled with lots of activity and joy-but not leave much time
blogging!! I hope to see you now and then, but I know it will only be very little for the coming 2 weeks!!
So please bear with me and my absence- 
I wish you all very lovely and happy dayes, untill I see you again!!

Hugs and love

Kære Dorthe - pragtfulde gaver du har fået! Ønsker dig rigtig dejlige dage med børnebørnene! Jeg starter Mormor-tid på tirsdag og fire dage frem.
Så vi høres ved når vi har fået vores kurv fyldt med gode mormor-minder:)

Kære Dorthe.
Smukke, smukke og fantasifulde gaver.
Jeg håber, du havde en dejlig fødselsdag og at du ellers har mulighed for at nyde det flotte sommervejr, der er for tiden. Jeg forsøger at komme udenfor så meget som muligt og glædes ved at have nogle dejlige danske sommerdage.
Du må have nogle henrivende uger sammen med dine børnebørn.
Knus, Emilie

Dejlige gaver fra gode venner, men Dorte, har du set det sidste indlæg fra Lululiz, det tog pusten fra mig, sikken et paradis hun har indrettet sig i en campingvogn. knus morkaren.

The flower is glorious! Bornholm must be a very special place during the summer months.
Dorthe, what beautiful creations and all that wool for you to create with. Maybe soon you will have time to use your felting machine and that box of wool.
The doll, well she does make me smile. It is lovely that you will give her a beautiful home.
I am so happy you liked the little gifts I sent your way. How lucky I am that I found a friend in you, shown me such friendship and of course you are an inspiration.
Have a lovely weekend and Dorthe, enjoy this time with those beautiful children, we know you will catch-up with us when you have a little bit of time, we are not going anywhere :)

Oh WOW my sweet friend so many more beautiful gifts from Bettina, Robin and Lynne who all care about you so much.
That is such a sweet heart and well now I can imagine Robin's doll collection growing and growing!
You will have so much fun with that box of felt when you get there. It was so sweet of Bettina to gift you that in readiness for your new felting machine.
Lynne's gifts are so soft and feminine just like herself! And a new stash of stamps and ephemera - you are just the luckiest!
That rose is a true winner in my heart - can't remember seeing it bloom like this before - it's just stunning.
Hope to hear soon in between grand children's play and eveything else going on.
Hope you can feel my love!
Your Suzy
