Wendy invites to yet another beautiful meeting about Simply Neutrals.

I`m sorry to say that this time I do not have that much to show you, my time have been
shared between my grandkids, and searching for,- and trying selling our house!!
So very time-cunsuming.

But I do have a sneak peak showing a part of a card to a very dear friend, and as she
did not receive it yet , this is what you get now,lol.

The other sneak peak, is from an unfinished page in my Emily book,
created with the instructions from dear Suzy , in her beautiful class,
you can find here . 

She takes you through everything to create a journal in her own amazing way !!

Here she is, older and beautiful , on a photo taken by one of her
admirers , whom also wrote her a lovely not on the photo.

Lots of laces and bits of paper napkins ,creating the romantic
and lovely old fashion feeling of days gone by.

Thank you dear Wen, for this #. 24  of the adventure ,in visiting
you and all the other talented and wonderful friends, taking part!!

Hugs and love -Dorthe

Hi Dorthe! I saw on Wen's blog that you had posted~
I like your photo for the Emily book! She is a beautiful lady : )
And all your laces and fabrics put it right in the vintage mood!
Is that a postage stamp?! Soo lovely.
And what a nice little 'peek' into the card you are creating for your friend~ I really like the edging work, so pretty! and time-worn~
I am looking forward to seeing it complete when you post it in full!
Bless you friend,
Karen O

What a very beautiful lady Emily is. I have LOVED following along with all your beautiful artworks. I'm so glad you got to spend more time with the grandkids (I always love those photos), and I didn't know you were planning on moving - somewhere close by? Happy Tuesday - XOXOXO

Dorthe, I visit your blog and I am able to "breathe". There is a beautiful serenity in your creations and I also feel as though I am always taking a step back into the past, meeting those lovely women with their tales to share.
Emily is so beautiful with the delicate colours and laces surrounding her and the sneak peek of the first creation, that image of the sweet young woman, so pretty and I recognise the wooden corner detail, so happy you found a home for it.
Goodnight Wishes

Ohhhh I'm loving your new work already, though just seeing a sneak peek! So full of gorgeousness!! I love the beautiful background behind the girl, did you paint that? Looking forward to seeing the whole of it! Thank you for your sweet words, dear friend, and for joining the party again and so faithfully. Sending you big hugs and sunny smiles, xx

Beautiful peeks at your lovely art creations dear Dorthe ♥
You always give such a soft and loving look to things pulling together the nicest ingredients to help tell your stories.
Take care and don't work too hard or as we sometimes say here in the US: Don't spread yourself too thin :-)
Wishing you all good things and a smooth process for what you have going on right now.

That card you are creating looks so yummy dearest Dorthe. I love the little corner we get to peek at plus the lovely big scroll which may be stencilled?? A very sweet gir! Your friend is going to just love receiving this.

Your Fabric and Lace book page of Emily growing into a young woman is serenely beautiful surrounded by the most beautiful vintage laces. Thank you sweetie for sharing the link to my class also. I know how much you are enjoying this amidst all the chaos of house hunting and selling - having just been there myself. Patience and gentleness with yourself my dear friend will help heaps!
Sending love and warm hugs,
Suzy xoxoxox

Good morning, my dear Dorthe, I'm happy to hear that you were able to spend time with your grandkids. I know how much it means to you.
Your new creations are beautiful. Ahh, there is Emily all grown up. I wonder if she will get married to this admirer of hers one day. ;)
Have a lovely day, sweetie!
Hugs and ♥

Kirsten Eriksen said...

Det ser rigtig spændende ud alt det du viser. Tænk at have så meget kreativitet som du har. Håber det kommer til at gå fint med jeres hussalg. Vil I helt væk fra "øen" eller bare et andet sted derover?

Hello Sweet Dorthe,
Your friend's card is so lovely! Even though we only see a peek it is amazing. I am sure your friend will be delighted. The Suzy page is wonderfully romantic. That is a fab post card too. You did a beautiful job with this page with all that lovely white lace.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.
