A gift in neutral tones .

Another wonderful party together with dear Wendy :

This hanger I recently created for a very dear friend, to her birthday.

I used a bingo card as foundation, and added old laces, buttons, and the beautiful old image of
a young girl , and yes I used the original photo :-)

The piece of wood on top is an old decoration piece from years ago,
where they were often sitting on wardrobes , 

Old handmade piece of lace and old buttons !

A wooden heart treated with paint and crackle paste.
I enjoyed creating with fabric and laces again, 

Another old ,I believe ,lace tool ?

The lilacs are almost finished blooming, so these are from last
week, when I treated myself, with a beautiful bouquet of white ones.

Thank you for every visit, and every comment, I treasure both
so very much, and wishes you all a wonderful week.

Hugs and love

Jeg tror ikke, at jeg har set noget, du har lavet, som jeg ikke er blevet imponeret af. Du kan få så mange forskellige ting på et enkelt "stykke" til at se fantastisk ud.Det er altid spændende at se, hvad du nu har fået lavet. Rigtig god dag

I do love this latest creation of yours...the lace, the ruffle, the little heart! All so sweet! Your flowers are so pretty too! I love lilacs but ours bloomed quite some time ago....Have a lovely week!

Goodness, what a fortunate friend. Very beatiful Dorthe with the exquisite laces and ephemera. The white lilacs look wonderful - so fresh and clean looking. Have a lovely weekend. Nicola x

Lace Age Girl said...

Hello Dorthe, Simply beautiful! That vintage hand made lace is perfect on your collage. I love your white lilacs, too. Wish i could smell them!

I was here the other dear Dorthe and my computer would not cooperate so I did not get to comment and say WOW how very lovely this piece is.
Every detail so special. The crackled ♥ so sweet. The laces and trims you included are wonderful. The pink rose embroidered netting really adds a special something as does the beautifully carved wood piece. I like that you began with a bingo card which is a great substrate and foundation for all of your gorgeous layers.

An absolutely gorgeous vintage hanging - so many delightful and beautiful details. And the white lilac is glorious - probably my favourite flower in the world.
