I live ,as you know ,in Denmark, and we just celebrated Midsummer, and therefore
also my birthday, where I recieved so many gorgeous gifts !!
This very beautiful banner is from my dear friend Kimberly .

Each little banner holds something special, and wonderful !!

Old and gorgeous stunning things, -please click my photoes to see them real !!

Here is one with a Charlotte , and some have adorable old flowers 
and bling .... I love bling-lol

Isen`t it just amazing !!!

The giftbag was closed with this old, lovely belt buckle.

And the card from dear Kimberly is so shabby and beautiful, too 

Thank you my friend, for this gorgeous gifts, it is hanging here in front of me ,
making me smile - Hugs from afar to you !!

From one of my other dear friend Martina
I recieved this amazing wooden box, that she so beautifully have decked in
the most wonderful collage paper.
Martina ,I have used your beautiful photoes as I just could not get the right tones ,myself !

Isen`t it gorgeous with the tiny book on top , the steampunk feeling,
and the sweetness of the blue flowers !!

Take a closer look here , I love it!!

And this beautiful charm, Martina added to hang from the wonderful white
old doorknop !!

The card from sweet Martina. is also Steampunk related,  which 
I am truly in love with, but just don`t seem to be able to create

So therefore a special, and  big thank you my dear friend, for sending these 
most gorgeous presents.

Summer is really here, now, and tomorrow I will go to be with my daughetr and 
grandkids, while my husbond takes care of the house here :-)

I will not be able to blog much the coming week, but will loook forward seing
all your beautiful posts when I`m back, and "allone " again!!

Till then take care, and I hope life is good for you !!!

Love and hugs,  Dorthe

Hello dear Dorthe

Sending you belated "Birthday Wishes" from France!
Your birthday must be near both my children, who were born on the same day
21st June, but three years apart!
Such beautiful gifts from your dear bloggy friends - I love Kimberley's romantic lacey banner. Martina is a wonderful artist and always has original designs - I admire her work.

Enjoy your time with your family - I know how precious these days are for you!

We leave France tomorrow for our long trip back to New Zealand, after having the most special time with our three granddaughters and of course our daughter and her husband.
We are not used to the heatwave hot days and nights!!!

Much love

Dear Dorthe,
Kimberley's gift to you, that sweet bunting with a gift tucked inside each section, it is so very special and I am sure looks even more beautiful displayed in a room. I enjoyed looking at all the details.
Martina, I call her Queen of Steampunk! The box is amazing with so much detail, it is fabulous as is the stamped collage.
Have a beautiful time with your family.
