My wonderful grandkids  arrives tonight with their father, to spend
some dayes with us here , and I`m so happy to see them,- later they change 
father, with mother :-) and stayes with our daughter for almost 2 weeks!!
What a wonderful summer we will have ,being together for weeks.

Lovely roses strung ,to hang and dry in my window 

Here the dried version, lovely in soft pink.

I created this collage for my dear sweet friend Yvonne,
and as she recieved it yesterday I can show it here :-)

I loved using the handmade plaster head , making it look as a porzelain
head, using Diamond Glace. It mostly consists of old laces in lovely shades of white and nature
colours. I`m so happy that Yvonne loves, it. 

I want to wish you happy weeks ahead, as I will only now and then be on your blogs, dear friends.
Not so much time for that, with quests for the coming weeks.
But I hope to visit a little, and hope to see you all when I return back in August !!

Sending you much love, and hugs.
Dorthe, xx

Hello dearest Dorthe
I love that anticipation of spending summer days with our precious grandies!
They will be so excited to be with you too.
Hold on to each moment as the time flies by too fast....

Yvonne will love and appreciate every beautiful detail of the exquisite collage you made her.
Did you create the lovely head too Dorthe - she has the sweetest face and hair.

The roses are so special and will bring you great joy in winter days.

Have fun with your little ones and give them each a hug for me!

What a stunning collage, Dorthe - whimsical, magical and full of mystery and beauty. I love the roses hanging in the window too - what a lovely smell they must give off as they dry in the sun.

So glad you're enjoying lots of family time!
