Yes we are back to the story of Emely, here in Wendy`s Simply Neutrals # 165

I want to show you the house she lived in, back then, a wonderful Londoner house.
I think the trees in the front have been beautiful ,looking at ,summer,
autumn, winter, and spring !!She lived in number 47, just as I did as child!!

Even it is difficult to see it here, I used many laces on top of each other, togethere with the
wonderful paper napkin tree, and the beautiful velvet flower ,which I have bought from 
Liz -http://lululizinlalaland.blogspot.dk/ in her wonderful Etsy shop 

The hearts are embroidered on my sewing mashine , and 
shows the love she felt for this childhood place.

I hope you will visit Wendy, and all the others,- linking to this , her,
lovely party ,to see their very different, but amazing art.

I will be around again visiting you all, now Mathilde is back home ,again !!

Wishing you the most fantastic February, all.

Hugs and love

Hello Dorthe,
It is lovely to see you posting today : )
Your newest page is gorgeous! I love how you are continuing the story, and how you made your page. The tree is such a perfect addition to the feel of the page! Beautiful!

Sophie said...

Liebe Dorthe, eine schöne Geschichte ist das, und eine wundervolle Arbeit.
Du bist sowieso eine Meisterin in deiner Art.
Ich liebe deine versponnenen Werke, so voller Liebe gemacht, und mit so vielen Details.
Ich kann mich garnicht satt daran sehen.
Verzeih mir, wenn ich nicht jedes mal etwas dazu schreibe.

Umarmung und ganz liebe Grüße von Sophie

Nydelig Dorthe. Nå er vi kommet til februar og det går mot vår. Det er deilig å tenke på. Vi har så mye snø nå, at vi vet snart ikke hvor vi skal gjøre av den.

How lovely to see where Emely lives - what a wonderful photo of the house, and that tree is just stunning! The embroidered hearts are such a sweet touch.

Lovely page, I like the tree in it too and the little tab with the hearts is a sweet touch too, of course the lace is lovely!

I love this beautiful page you have made showing us Emely's home! Your photo is soo cool! And the fabrics and embellishments' are gorgeous! When I click on the pic it gives me some beautiful close-ups!
Wonderful stitching and beautiful laces and fabrics Dorthe; your work is always inspiring and such a genuine vintage quality to it!
I must return to work, but hope to visit again soon!
Peace to you friend, Karen O

Hi Dorthe. Another beautiful page on the saga of Emily. What a great idea you had for this page. I hope that you're having a great week. Hugs, Sue

Lace Age Girl said...

Dorthe, I love how you are building a story into your book pages. Is it based on your own story? The tree is amazing!!! Love it!!! And all your chosen laces look so pretty. I'm off to catch up on your previous page, too, since I have been away. Have a lovely creative week. Hugs,

Caterina Giglio said...

I agree with Patty, I adore that tree, just stunning and it lends a wonderful vertical element to your design! Just beautiful as always dear Dorthe! xoxo

Lynne Moncrieff said...

Another special page with the beautiful story continuing.
I can imagine her living in this house as a child and how dear the house is to her heart. The beautiful attention to detail with you stitching those hearts on your machine, love this detail! The tree (I am so lucky that you also gifted some to me!) is perfect, with the child possibly sitting under the tree on a summer day, reading a favourite book.
Dorthe, beautiful art and story.

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

I love Emily's story Dorthe.
Her house is lovely and tells us more about her.
The tree adds life to the piece!
It has your mark all over it and the hearts are wonderful!
Sad for you with Mathilde going home, I know.

Dear Dorthe,

Thank you for showing us your beautiful work and the history from it.
Lovely that you both lived at Number 47.
Glad that you were able to spend some special time with Mathilde.
Enjoy the weekend

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

That's another beautiful page in Emely's book, dear Dorthe. The house is lovely and the napkin tree is a great eye-catcher. Maybe Emely watched some squirrels running up and down the tree when she was little. It's a wonderful story you are telling.
Have a great week! Hopefully it's not so cold on your island anymore.
Big hugs and love,
