Some time ago, I found new bird stamps (love birdstamps )
on a webshop : www.redleadpaperworks.com   -and just had
to have a few,- among them this one used here.
Isen`t it a sweet chubby bird!

The ATC is made on an old price-lap from a piece of
cloth I bought, -alwayes save them - and for the nest I
used a skeleton leave .

I am normally not fond of yellow, but this soft tone ,-and with a
little treasure gold added, spoke to me !
Love the little feather stamp, too.

I found this white : Perlehyacint---

In English : Grape Hyacinth- last week when 
grocery shopping with my husbond,-and brought it home-
added old paper around the pot and decorated with a velvet
ribbon, the most lovely glitter star ,-
(once a gift from my dear sweet friend    MARIE  )
and the white dove , I think it is a sweet
before Easter decoration .

Dear friends, and dear followers, I hope your week is a good one- and  with 
hours enough to fulfill all your wishes of creating and feeling great 
doing whatever you wish,- and have to do.

Many warm hugs, and love
from Dorthe

Kære Dorthe

Din fugle-tag er rigtig fin. Og helt rigtig i forhold til at vi jo nu nærmer os påske. Jeg kan godt lide de sarte forårsfarver.

Perlehyacinter er sådan en yndig blomst! Din dekoration er blevet rigtig fin.

Også en tak for din kommentar om min strikkede trøje. Det er mig selv, der har den på på billedet. Den passer vist perfekt. :-)

Ha' en rigtig dejlig ny uge.

Knus, Emilie

Beautiful! Such a gorgeous Spring tag, bird and butterfly and sunny yellow flower, how very lovely. And the nest made from a skeleton leave is just inspired. Must go and have a look at those stamps, the bird stamp you used is rather special.

hugs and JOY,

Your tag speaks of Spring to me. I love your little bird in her nest. So lovely and sweet. Your grape hyacinth is beautiful how you arranged it. One of my favorite Spring flowers.

Beautiful, such a sweet bird. I will have to check out the website. Your collage work always inspires, wishing you a wonderful creative day

butterfly said...

Gorgeous bird stamps... and like you, I don't usually go for yellow, but there's something about the golden daffodil yellow of spring that is always beautiful, and that's what I find here in your lovely tag, so full of texture. I love grape hyacinths too!

I did get your answer, and had been meaning to write a proper reply, and all of a sudden my email is playing up... hope it will be back to normal soon!

Super flor tag. Er enig med dig at det fjerstempel er rigtig flot. Jeg syntes at man næsten kan "føle" fjeren.

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

That's a beautiful tag and so springlike with the bird and the butterfly, dearest Dorthe. Your new stamp is really pretty and I also like the feather stamp.
Grape hyacinths are among my favorite spring flowers. They are so lovely.
I hope you're doing better every day and you enjoy walks on the beach, sweetie.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
Mange kys og knus,

Oh that is a gorgeous bird stamp and you have decorated and embellished your label so beautifully. I love the soft nature tones of golds and browns.
It's simply beautiful sweet Dorthe and now I must go and look at those bird stamps too.
You have decorated your grape hyacinth so beautifully sitting it there on your bench so gracefully. I love the pure white color!
I am emailing you next sweet friend!
My love as always travels with this!

Tanya said...

Oh, Dorthe - it's perfect, as always! I love birds, too. And, such simple touches to your potted plant, made for a beautiful centerpiece (and another bird)! Hope your Wednesday is wonderful - I am recovering from my surgery - will drop you an email explaining it all. Have to rest lots, but feeling so good this morning. Thank you for the warm wishes - XOXOXOXO Tanya

You have such a feeling for harmony in fabrics and colours. Your tag is AWESOME!!! I am happy to have seen you here today, my dear, and all well...

I love your bird and feather too Dorthe. They are gorgeous, I love the ochre yellows too. Your little pre-Easter display is beautiful, so delicate the grape hyacinths are lovely.

Anni - My Creative Life and Mixed Media Books said...

Meget sød forårs tag og hvor ser potten med hyacinther dejlig ud med papiret, båndet og de andre ting du har tilføjet, jeg har haft travlt med børne pasning og andet, ingen tid til computeren.

Really cute chickadee...we have them everywhere here and they make me smile, just like your creations. Lovely Spring floral happiness. xox

Maelchen said...

Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my Easter Eggs. You know what? I did not do a DIY as it was my friend's recipe how to alter them: I threw the screamingly colourful new eggs into the fire. Yes, you heard right, this is my secret: Throw everything metallic into an open fire and see what comes out! (Pssst... Secret, :-))
Hugs, Manu

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

So sweet, Dorthe...I love the stamps you chose, too!

AppleApricot Wen said...

Hello dear Dorthe, I'm happy to see you creating again. Are you feeling better now? Is there any news on the medical front?
The bird stamp you bought is beautiful. You made a beautiful atc/tag with it. I love how you made a nest out of a skeleton leaf, it's just a perfect cozy little nest! And that gorgeous yellow flower. I do love the sunny yellow and this flower looks so yummy soft.
So funny to see you using a price tag as a base. I save and use them too, lol! They're a perfect size for little project, tags for gifts and such.
Beautiful flower Easter vignette too, they smell so good!
Wishing you a happy weekend.

Vicki Boster said...

This made my heart stop Dorthe-- it's absolutely gorgeous! Love love love the bird and the way you made that nest!

Your flowers are so lovely- the most perfect tribute to Spring!


marie said...

Oh such a beautiful tag Dorthe! I do love the soft yellow color you used!!
The Grape Hyacinth is pretty...the addition of the old paper, ribbon and star make it extra-special. What a lovely idea!
