Have you ever returned home , to be greeted , from an almost 
unknown blogfriend , with some lovely gifts ?
That happened to me some weeks ago.
These lovely tea candle holders swept in white lace, the wonderful
lavender suger, and most beautiful card awaited me,...
They came from KIRSTEN

Thank you so very much Kirsten ,it was so very kind of you, to spoil me so !!

Also there was this fantastic wristcuff, that Kirsten sugested I could use 
in my creations, they are really wonderful bling pearls !

Some of my roses have bloomed beautifully again , AREN`T THEY GORGEOUS!!

Now to the lovely swap I did first, and sad enough ,also for the last time this year!
Our dear Kimberly, from

have desided to stop posting to her blog when this months swap, is finished !!
I`m truly sad she is leaving blog-land , she is one of my favorite
bloggers, and I love her beautiful creations, and have bought several
pieces over the years !!
I hope you will return someday dear friend, I will miss you !!

The ATC`s I recieved are : 

This beautiful wintergirl, from Pam

From Sylvia came this darling sweet ,really dressed up doll!

And lastly a beautiful dress, in it`s own lovely envelope , isen`t it 
sweet hanging on the clothes-line !!

hanger , thank you dear Kim

Thank you to all the ladies from whom I recieved these
wonderful ATC`s , I will enjoy looking at them for a long time !!

lets hope it goes on for this months ,too !

It is wonderful to see that your friends are spoiling you with the most beautiful gifts.
That sweet candle holder and I can definitely imagine you will work that wrist cuff into your creations.
The little packages with sweet delights and all the wonderful artwork - if anyone deserves such treasures it is you my friend.

Welcome home to your beautiful blooms-- they will soon be gone. We will miss our summer flowers won't we...

Sending you love

What a lovely lot of happy mail to come home to. It's a shame the swap is coming to an end - perhaps you should start one up yourself! Lovely to see the ATCs you received and those wonderful gifts from Kerstin, but my favourite photo is of those glorious flowers - stunning!

Hi Dorthe, welcome back from your time away in Copenhagen. Your gifts upon arriving home are gorgeous. Love the swap gifts too and the gorgeous wristcuff.
Your flowers are beautiful and so nice to still have them blooming. It is sad to see one of our friends leave blogland but sometime one just has to move on.
Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. Wishing you a wonderful fall weekend. Hugs and Blessings sweet friend. cm

Fantastiske roser - de er bare så flotte. Ja det er utroligt hvad en kommentar på en blog kan blive til.Så selv om du ikke var hjemme da jeg var forbi, ja så kommer jeg uden tvivl en anden gang.
Nye venner er bestemt en virkelig gave - også selv om det "kun" er på nettet endnu

SIGH - you TRULY are loved, my friend. I imagine you in your home, surrounded by all these beautiful things - nothing plain or drab for dear Dorthe! I would wear that wrist cuff for awhile before you use it to make something else - it's KILLER! And, even your roses scream GORGEOUS. Yeah, you my friend, are blessed with beauty, all around! Happy Wednesday!

More beautiful and lovely treasures for special you dear Dorthe!
What a fine array of ATCs in your swap.
Oh those gorgeous roses in October or any time = really stunning.
It is sad when friends leave blogland or move away.
A reminder that nothing lasts forever so we must enjoy each moment.
