My dear friend MARIE  http://marie-lostbirdstudio.blogspot.dk/ and I ,long
before christmas desided on not sending christmas gifts to each other,
but to wait till spring ,to exchange an art-piece, of friendship-love .

Most of you know Marie and her beautiful creations, and her love for birds , and as this
sweet friend,knows I love birds too, she created the most fantastic bird-themed gifts for me.
Her tag is a beautiful example on her ability to create pieces which are almost allive.
See the birds nest she did herself!!

Behind the tag was this little box...Oh was I exited to open it up!!!

Inside was another bird collage, this one totally in fabric, -I so love it,
the colours are not quit as the real ones ,they are more warm ! I adore this little
artpiece  with the tiny birds nest Marie added,for me to use in something sweet.

But ,-what was behind the birdcollage !!! YES ,this amazing necklace, -so gorgeous !!
the sweetest soldered bird home complete with one of Marie`s handmade nests , resting on the
Mica wall ,-which is old music paper.The blue pearls goes so well with all my blue clothes.
Ofcourse dear Marie also had to add the loveliest birdie, hanging from the bottom of it`s home,
so beautiful with the nature stone!

I`m so in love with this adorable piece of jewelry and when not hanging around my
neck, it hangs in a window ,for the light to shine through the mica paper ,which becomes totally 
trasparent .
My dearest Marie, thank you so very much, for your fantastic gift, I so love it!
Much love and thankfulness from me to you.


I hope you all enjoyed a happy Easter, I had some wonderful dayes with my grandkids.
Now they returned home and I have to get used being "allone" again.
I wish you a beautiful rest of the week, and send you
