Having been gifted with  my dear Liz`s  amazing necklace, I wanted to try
my hand on a few fabric pearls, too ,-So I went back to read the
wonderful tutorial written by Sandy Babb.. you can find it here
on the link , some posts away !!

This is what I came up with, two pairs of earrings,
I still have to practise , but they were fun creating.

This ,for me unusual little book and card, I made for a friend, not
the fondest of laces and sepia , so I hope she likes it !!-not there yet !

I had fun with the tiny paper book, and the recycling of
papers ,old and new !!

Tomorrow I`m off to be with my daughter and  Mathilde,
Real girl time, no men ,lol,lol- My husbond stays at home.

I will be away till Monday, so till then you will not hear much from me,
Take care of yourself, and have some wonderful days ,all.
See you soon.

Hugs and love from Dorthe

Your earrings are nothing to apologize for! They are exquisite and elegant, dearest Dorthe! I must have a look at the tutorial and try out myself. Thank you, dear friend for sharing the tut! Also your card and booklet will make the Rezipient very happy, I am sure! And you know, my dear? It makes me soooo happy to see sich friendship and liveliness in blogland, like you are showing! This really livens my spirits which are still so down after the horrible things that happen in the world... Stay the way you are, dear friend, you offer so much warmth and gentleness! Hugs from Manu

Wow Dorthe your little fabric wrapped beads are gorgeous! So elegant as earings in white and pearls!
The paper and stamping projects look fantastic too dear friend.
It is just the right gift for your friend I am sure.
Hoping you have fun with "the girls"
when you get there and where you can all let your hair down!
Sending happy hugs sweetie,

Hello dear Dorthe

I adore your sweet earrings and I imagine if you wear them in Copenhagen - Mathilde will have her eye on them! Be warned Dorthe – they might not come home with you, ha ha!
All my granddaughters would love them so I had better follow your link to the tutorial - thank you!

The little birdie book is very sweet too - I love birds and I know they are dear to your heart too, I have a little tin of feathers and bits I have been collecting for a little while to make something similar too!

Enjoy your family dear Dorthe, make the most of every minute and have lots of cuddles and fun with them!

The earrings are just wonderful, Dorthe - so delicate and perfectly shabby chic in design. I love your tiny book too - it's easy to see you were very inspired. Hope you have been enjoying your time with your family.

I never thought about fabric earrings - so beautiful!

Unknown said...

Oh My Goodness Dorthe! I LOVE both pairs of these earrings!! I love the wrapped wire around the pieces of fabric--Very glitzy and the wonderful clear glass beads mixed with those luscious pearls, on the paler pair--Classy! Oh, and the grey pair--edgy, glitzy, posh--Gorgeous! I can see both pairs of these earrings being worn with a gorgeous dress or dressing up a pair of jeans and a t-shirt! Your friend is going to love these and wear with pride!!
