A new week and a new party with dear Wen :

 and with her beautiful neutrals !!
It is wonderful to take part and visit all the other participants !!

Here from my beach as, you can see , there are only NEUTRALS ,

Stones ,stones and stones as far your eye can reach !
but also beautiful, laying there, in front of the grey sea !!

This is the front of the book I showed pages from already,
made in a class of Nellie`s , I love the spine with the
beautifully pearl embroidered tulle !!

Another paga inside, -this book is all about nature !!

This wooden piece with the gorgeous rose, I bought as is, some
years ago, in an antique shop in Copenhagen , I think it is beautiful!!

And  maybe you saw this before, as it is one of my christmas cards from last year,
I think I soon have to start ,the creating of more, for this years christmas !!

I could not stay away from this wonderful Party, which dear Wendy is hosting for us !!

You can post anything in neutral colours,
be it cream, white, grey, beige, and heck even silver and brown are alowed!

Just go visit Wendy to see and

I choosed to show a spread from my book made after one of Nellie`s 
beautiful classes , as I love neutrals from Nature , too !!

Here I found my lace treasures, all machine made, but I love this
type of older laces ,so much !! Also my tiny old curtain bud, the tarnished
tiny silver bowl, and the set of new letter stencils ,are favorites of mine !!

Lastly a dew of my old baby shoe collection, and a pair of knitted
socks , together with a most beautiful shell, from the coast of Jylland.

Thank you my dear friend Wen, for this lovely opertunity to show our
love of neutrals , --it is a very lovely way of starting autumn, here on the 
northern hemisphere !!

For the last 10 days I have been in Copenhagen  helping my
daughter pack up her home, for her moove to a nother
apartment, very soon, --also we gave her a helping hand with
painting the new place , so I have not had much time to
enjoy your blogpost, or visit on fb, I hope to follow up, on your doings
this next coming week !!

This snippet roll is a gift I made for my dear Danish friend
Bettina, for her birthday ,last week!!

Yes I love creating snippet rolls , and love using nature images,
tiny pieces and old laces, so I desided on this :"to see nature "

The birds are freebies from a lot of different places, so I`m sorry
not to be able to give credit to the sweet giver !!

I hope you all have had a wonderful week, and wishes you all ,
happy and creative days to come !! 

With hugs and love from Dorthe,
thanking you all, for cozy visits and lovely comments !!
