Look what the postman brought me all the way from Scotland,
and from my very dear and lovely friend       LYNNE 
A beautiful little heart with one of Lynne`s handmade mould paper roses.
The rose is app. 1,5 cm in diameter ,so very small and sweet,
and placing it on the heart was such a lovely greeting.

It was a total surprice ,and a wonderful "hug" to cheer me up, from 
a close and caring friend.
Thank you from my heart dearest Lynne, you are alwayes there for me
and a very treasured friend . 

Long time ago ALEXANDRA  and I swapped some summer flower
seeds, and I recieved this gorgeous card from her,-- look how she used 3
tags to make up "the story" of spring and new life.
together with the card were two beautiful seed bags. created in old papers, and with the 
sweetest french text tag,and flowers.

Thank you dear Alex, they are still on my table to be admired every day .

And to wish you all a wonderful weekend, a picture with a few lovely white
violets from my garden, -they grow wild in many places in both white and blue ,
and are so beautiful, I think.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments and for still being concerned
about me, you are all so very kind, and your words so appreciated.

Warm hugs and love

Beautiful gifts-- I'd treasure them all if they were mine:)
(The bird collage is just gorgeous:)

Such delicate little blooms-/ I'm a bit jealous-- we are getting more snow tonight. I think that spring has lost her way---

Love you-

Beautiful heart and seed packets. I love violets, too. They are one of my favorites.

Beautiful Dorthe, Friends are the best well wishers.

Vicki is right, Spring seems to have lost her way this year. Maybe soon.

How very lovely! The rose on the heart is so sweet, and Alexandra's card is just gorgeous. That girl creates such beauty every time she crafts. Those little violets are the prettiest little wild flowers, aren't they? They grow all over our land at the cottage in France, in all shades from white to purplish blue.

Nydelige ting, kjære Dorthe. Jeg har nesten gitt opp PCn, men nå virker den, så jeg krysser fingrene for at det skal vare. Savner å besøke alle mine bloggvenner.

Klem fra meg

Such wonderful gifts dear, so beautiful. They're two very talented girls.
Beautiful white violets! Do you also dry and press them dear Dorthe? That's something I'd like to try: drying and pressing flowers. And also use them (and other eco-dyes) for dyeing fabrics. So much to do and learn! :-)
Big hugs to you, xx Wendy

Dorthe, you sweet lady... It is so kind of you to go visiting other blogs and leaving such lovely comments. I have been thinking a lot about you, your worries and fears... And I am all too happy, that everything goes well now. Was there not an appointment with the doctor scheduled for April 1.? Hopefully this appointment went also well for you! Anyway, I keep sending you positive energy as many here do, I am sure! And I am always happy to have news from you!
A warm embrace from
