Yes I chose to show you more gifts from two very dear and longtime friends!!
I know it is a long post from me, but I so wanted to honor both friends ,by showing their 
beautiful gifts and hearts,-before Christmas, so I hope you will
be with me all through the post !!

The one I opened up first arrived from dear Lynne https://lynnesbowsandbelles.wordpress.com/
Isen`t this one wrapped so beautifully, with the gorgeous tag, an art piece all
in its own !!

This is the card, deserving so much more,than this photo gives it,
but if you click on it, you can see the shine ,and beautiful texture ,
and the little but so effective adds Lynne did.

And Oh my , look what I found inside , --the most gorgeous 
jewelry, that Lynne created herself, just to me-.

See the texture, the little cheesecloth and gorgeous  rhinestones, I
so love it ,and know it will be one of my very used and treasured 
necklaces. It is so very stunning, Thank you my very friend.

Also my dear Lynne, gifted me with this special and angelic canvas,
which fill the room with lovely shine, and the peace of Christmas.

I love the material she used to deck the stamped word, and which gives it 
a blurred or foggy look, with tiny bubbles ,which gives an ethereal feeling.
It is gorgeous, Lynne, dear.

As extras, yes you read it right,...I was also gifted a bunch of wonderful
paper clay items, Lynne created herself,-- some lovely snowball ribbon.
and blinky "rhinestone" ribbon. 
What a feast and surprise ,to open up for all these lovelies !
Thank you so much  from my heart my very dear friend!!

The other dear friend of mine whom also send me wonderful gifts and greetings

See this beautifully wrapped gift  and her sweetest envelope,
Santa looks at me as to say : "Don`t open up until 24 /12 "  but
 dear Marie, wrote me not to listen to him , lol.

Here is the card which is such a beautiful, Christmas card all in neutral tones ,
and with one of the most lovely drawings of Santa, I think.
Look at all the layers ,rusty bells,and snowflakes, and old papers,
I love it Marie.

AND I also love your amazing gift. It is a beautiful Christmas treasure,
With the soldered bottle neck, the lovely tiny tree, with star and sign,
and oh see the gorgeous snowflake, glittering from the rhinestones.

Inside are lovely silver glitter, pearls, and two little
signs :love and peace-click the photo to see.

One thing I also found great is this stamp on the back of the envelope,
it looks wonderful,dear ! 

Now this one with the very spoken text, I have not dared to open up, but
last week Marie wrote me to say, it was ok, and only for fun, :0 
so as we are to be with my daughter ,grand kids and their father, this year,
and as I know there will be so many gifts for the kids, I preferred to open up all,
in my own piece, and so little lovely creations, would not disappear in papers !! 

And boy it was a surprise,... Marie  know that I for long have wanted,
to buy something like this to learn to create soldered charms, and bezels, but
that all I can buy here in DK, are very expensive tools for making
Creme brulee , and I did not have money for such.
Thank you for your kind heart, and sweetness, my dear Marie , I look so much
forward trying this after Christmas !!
And thank you also to you from my heart for all your so beautiful gifts to me.

So this was the last ,I promise, :o post before Christmas Eve,

Again I wish you all a



Hugs and love from Dorthe

How very beautiful all of your gifts are! And how special that Marie sent that to you as well. I would love to try soldering again but am afraid my hand is not steady at all. Cannot wait to see what you make!
Merry Christmas Dorthe! I have enjoyed our continued friendship this year!
