This romantic pincussion ,I created for a dear friend for her 
birthday , I used lots of old laces, 

The pincussion is made as a pumpkin, and on top of that is
a stopped yoyo , decorated with a lovely button and lace.

The pinns, are also made with old pearls !

I just celebrated my own birthday, as many of you know, and from my dear friend

I recieved some most beautiful gifts , and this beautiful adorable card.

I love the gorgeous bezel, Marie created herself ,with the beautiful
madonna image ,and lovely charms, it is so amazing,in real life !!!
- I also love the old French
dictionarly page.-

And this sweet fairy in soldered frame ,with the lovely charms,
is also one of Marie`s beautiful creations, just wonderful ,-

with this very true text on the backside, -isen`t it gorgeous.

On top of all that Marie sweetly gifted me materials to try make my own bezel,
YES, I`m so exited to try .
THANK YOU my dearest lovely friend, I`m so happy for it all, and for our friendship.

From another very dear friend ,Suzy
I also had some amazing gift in in the mailbox.

Look at this adorable, and gorgeous card !! I so love
Suzy`s style .

And one of Suzy`s beautiful sewn folders, so wonderful
made with old laces ,flower and seambinding.

Isen`t it just lovely , with all the layers , and romance it holds!!

And opened up I found 3 pockets, filled with gorgeous
seambindings ,ribbons and a button card.
In the third pocket was the "Sister "wallet ,with a pair of
old earrings inside.

See the yarn bobbin ,Suzy sweetly created also !!

And oh so much more, ....a handful of the most wonderful fabrics,

Shiny and wonderful to touch , I don`t know when I can bear to cut in them !!

My dearest Suzy, THANK YOU  so very much for all this beauty ,and goodies ,
I love it all ,my friend,
and thank you even more , for our close friendship.

Well I have more gifts to show you ,but this is enough for today, I hope you have
enjoied seing ,what some of my friends ,have so wonderfully created, and that
you will visit them both, if they are not yet, on your blog lists !!

Also thank you for your visits , which means so much to me, it would
not be the same life, if you were not out there somewhere ,all.

Hugs and love
