My dear friends , with this creation I wish you all a very Merry and Blessed Christmas .

Being a member of I got very inspiret of a creation made
by Lena Holmström , and by her tutorial shoving ,how she carve into a book , in this shabby way,-
and I made my own version in this old Danish book. 

Maria and the child greeted by lovely deer in the wood , behind the deer is a piece of
the Nativity of Jesus ,in French , and a branch - and pieces of lace,  flowers and berries on the side of Maria and Jesus  , 

My dear daughter , the grandkids and her x-husband will all celebrate
Christmas here with us, and them arriving today, I think it is time to wish
you all the most beautiful Christmas , as time will not be spend much 
online while they are with us . 

Much love and hugs to you and see you
before the New Year is celebrated

This is absolutely beautiful Dorthe and in turn offers great inspiration to others I am sure! I so love your neutral colours, always so masterfully put together!
(I have probably missed quite a few of your posts, but I have decided I will only post on Fridays and visit on Sundays from now on, as, though I love seeing all the work that people create, I find blogger to be a too time consuming platform these days, sorry about that, I hope you understand)….
Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best for a creative and hopefully healthy 2019!

So tasteful and beautifully created, so wonderful when we are inspired by those around us within the creative world. Just like I am inspired by your flare for bringing in those extra details.
Wishing you and the family a blessed Christmas, enjoy and create those special moments that we can carry with us year after year.
Thank you for your valued friendship and support throughout the year dear Dorthe. Kindest of wishes for the season Tracey xx

Dear Dorthe,
I know I stopped in to see this a few days ago but I don't know if I left a comment; It is fantastique! Gorgeous winter scene with the deer and trees; an the Mary and child surrounded by beautiful flowers and opened up pages - this is a work of art! I must investigate how to do this inside of a book! I like the textures and beautiful details you have here.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas with your family dear friend. (I hope my card made it to you!)
Loving hugs, karen o

Dorthe, Sorry I am so late to visit this post. We have had visitors, and no time off for computer.

The vintage book pages look fabul;ous with their white border, and the lovely stamped image. The cut out deer and Christmas pines are so sweet, making a wonderful Christmas atmosphere.
