So I want to wish you all a happy new year !
But first I want to show you some of my beautiful christmas gifts!

This amazing banner arrived from Australia from my dear SUZY

I was totally in awe over this wonderful and so gorgeous piece
of art.

I love the images Suzy used,

and all the lovely laces -

and wonderful old linen pieces.

I love it so much dearest Suzy !
You are a fantastic artist, and a beautiful friend, with whom I
have become very close,-I admire your skills, and you as
woman, and am so happy for our friendship.

An adorable card with Mary and Jesus-so 
serene and beatiful.

Also Suzy sweetly  send me wonderful tags with wemen ,a golden star, 

and this bag filled with flowers and gorgeous strips of lace,
and braids.
Thank you  so very much my lovely friend,- You so spoiled me Suzy.

From another very dear friend YVONNE 

I recieved this beautiful christmas stocking, where she used a photo
of little me, ( 1 1/2  year ) I love Yvonne`s gorgeous
creations, and that she uses embroidery in many of them,
like here ,with my name.

Isen`t it wonderful collages with a tiny bit of blue,and the buttons,bling and pearls.

These  vintage cards were attached the parcels,
they are so sweet.

And my dear Yvonne also send me this so lovely and beautiful
hand crocheted heart,filled with flowers,and leaves ...I
love the colours and your wonderful work my dear friend.
Thank you for surprising me with all this beauty, 
I treasure your gifts and I treasure your friendship very much!

The last thing to show you in this photo-heavy post is
this sweet card I recieved from ALEXANDRA

Inside she sweetly added this old post card.
I love them both dear Alexandra, thank you, so very much.

This photo was taken 6 dayes ago, on a tour with my family,
to a nearby forest. Almost looks like spring is here,
but the trueth is that we have yet not had any real winter-weather.
So the new year will also start looking green, and with no
frost anywhere.

I hope you all have had wonderful christmas dayes, and wishes
for you and your families that you will be blessed with a
happy and healthy new year 2014.
I look forward to seing all of you in the new year, and 
visit to see and hear news.

Thank you from my heart for so many beautiful hours with you
in the year soon gone.

I send you love and hugs

Oh Dorthe! Such gorgeous friends sent you such gorgeous gifts! You must feel blessed.
I love Suzis' art too and the garland in her silvery colours just blew me away with admiration! So much so, I have to get my hands on some hessian and do my version of a garland, hopefully with some of the gorgeousness like Suzis' in it!
And Yvonnes' stocking and gifts are beautiful too.
You lucky lady!

Happy, healthy, and prosperous 2014 to you and yours!
