HELLO JANUARY !!

Winter is here, but on and off , ....one day snow,
the other rain, so what better that stay inside for 
a little creative time !

This card I made for a friend, using papers
and Islandic moss for the nest.
The bird is a die cut from PaperArtsy
and the lovely stamp of leaves from Memory BOX .


I also used a piece of paper napkin  for the
stamping of quote , on the white layer,from behind
the postage stamps.
The color is Infusions Inks. 


This is a display on my chest of drawers.
I could not lay away the stunning  angel stander, I was gifted
of my dear friend Lynne, after Christmas, so it is still here,
and also the most beautiful card she created for me. 
Both so gorgeous, and amazing.


The old silver bowl holds hearts from friends, and to the left
I have my collection of little,old ,red jewelry boxes .

I hope your first January week was filled with lovely hours, and wishes 
you all a wonderful new week.

Hugs and love
Dorthe

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL , DEAR FRIENDS-

Very soon we have the Holidays and I want to wish you all a very happy Christmas time.
I hope it will be filled with beautiful and happy adventures for you all !!
This is a card I created for a dear friend !!


*******************************************

And this is a beautiful gift I received from another very dear friend 


 The most wonderful and so lovely
card  and star.
The card  with the warm dressed girl , so very beautiful
 resting so adorable onto the cardboard, and the French paper, and I love the glittering snowflake
and the two tiny bells, all adhered to the beautiful embossed card.



And this stunning  and most beautiful star ornement , with lovely old paper,
laces and fabric. What you can`t see here, is that is so gorgeously
glittering in the light.


Marie also spoiled me with these beauties, to play with myself,
in white felt ,-you can see the wonderful paper she used behind.


And here the wonderful big snowflake !


Just had to show you the star hanging here, on a birdcage in
my tv room. Thank you my dearest Marie, I so love the gifts from you,
they are both gorgeous, and so adorable.
Hugs to you my friend .


And to all of you whom might have time visiting,
I wish you a Merry,Merry Christmas,
happy hours and joy, the many coming days !!

A GIFT OF WINGS AND BEAUTY !!

Hello dear friends. 
This is my latest Christmas card, which I created yesterday.
It is not real finished here, as I forgot to take a picture
of it after having distressed the edge around Baby Jesus ,
with Archival  Ink -Hydrangea, but that is for your
imagination to see :-) 
The background is very thin paper, sprayed with infusions
stamped with the snowflake stamps, and using 
a snowflake stencil.


But back to the gift of wings !! 
I was dearly gifted a handful of wings from a lovely
friend last week, and she also added other lovely
pieces made in moulds.


I so love these wings ,and would love to be able buying 
the mould.
And on top of all that I also found this ,dearest
stocking ,handmade and so beautiful with pearls and laces. 
Thank you from my heart , my friend,
you really made my day special and filled with joy !!


I as some of you know, started decorating, and here are 
a few of my little Snow-angels from last year. 


Each in woolen coats, and skirts made from
old handkerchiefs ,with laces. 
Each bringing love !!


Thank you for visiting me, you are all so very
important and a beautiful part of my life .

Hugs and love
Dorthe

MY FIRST CHRISTMAS DECORATION IN MY NEW BIG WINDOW !!

Many years my dear friend Solvejg, made this tree for my shop, 
and I decided to buy one myself , it was green back then, but in my
new "white" sitting room, " it looks better in white, and my husbond 
sweetly painted it for me .


I have hung the most beautiful tags and ornaments
onto its branches,--all pieces I have received from
very dear blogging friends, over the years.


They are all beautiful, serene,

Lovely and sweet,


So beautifully created ,


All showing the joy , 


and spirit of Christmas.

I feel so blessed to have so many friends, with warm hearts
all over the world, and I treasure the different ,
winter creations, which are all unpacked, every year.
These are only a few examples , more will be added later .

*************
This tree created by stacking lots of paper bits on top of each other,--
another Danish friend created for a Christmas Market, I visited
last weekend.  I think they are so lovely ,and this stands in an old
silvery cup, which you unfortunately, can`t see, in the photo.



I hope your weekend have started lovely, and wishes you 2 beautiful days ahead !!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my dear American friends !!
Hugs and love from Dorthe,--
and thank you for visiting my blog, it is a joy
seeing you here!!!

NOVEMBER VERY SOON HALF GONE !!

So what would be more wonderful, than spending time 
creating a little Christmas joy !! 

This ornament is created from a wooden Christmas ball,
given to me from my very dear friend Lynne , together with the 
leaf and pom,pom`s , too. Thank you my lovely friend.


I first painted it all white, then used a lot of gesso to form the snow feeling,
and on the leaf I also added : Crust velvet white flock, showing up 
almost like soft snow. The acorns are filled with two pom,pom`s ,and around them I added
more of them, with a lot of Diamond Dust.


I made the flower, and added two beautiful real crystals ,
from where it can hang. 


Something else, a sneak peak of a card, where I used 
beautiful old embroidered fabric, another handmade rose, and even
some brown packaging material, from a packet from USA. 
You know I like to mix  fabric and papers.


And last, natures beauty!!
what could be more gorgeous, than these, almost ,skeleton leaves,
I found on one of my walks, and brought home !!

I hope you all are finding time to cozy up with ,whatever
makes you happy to create, and to enjoy quiet and inspirational
hours !!

Hugs and love
Dorthe

SNEAK PEAK ON ANOTHER CHRISTMAS CARD .


Yes a corner of another Christmas card created last week.
I love this stamp from Artistic Outpost, and helped
the winter arrive with texture paste, and snow pearls !!
Remember to click on the photos, if you wants a bigger
look ,at them !!



Yesterday my husband and I walked 5 kilometers in a nearby
wood, and as you can see I only have to bend down, to collect
cones for this years decorations , they are there in their thousands!!


Here on Bornholm we still have many green leaves on the trees, only few are becoming yellow.
The warm Baltic Sea, still hold sommers warmth !!


A grey day, but still with a little pale sun shining on the beautiful sea!!


This week starting tomorrow, my dear grandchild Mathilde will visit us,
and I will therefore not have much time on blogs, or FB,
but see you next weekend again, dear friends !!

Hugs and love from Dorthe
