Dear friends and followers, thank you, so much!!


Thank you ,to so many of you, whom have visited the interview ,my dear friend
made with me ,earlier this summer.
I have had so many overwhelming comments from
I have been blushing and am so very happy ,for all your loving
words about me, and my creations, which dear Wen,
showed so beautifully throughout the interview .
You are all, a bunch of the most wonderful friends I could
ever wish for, and I feel so blessed.





Also thank you Wendy ,dear , you made an amazing work, to frame
my answers ,and show my art. I`m so very thankful ,my dear lovely
friend. 

Now it is soon close to leaving my beach home, and all the mermaids,and 
fairies I have befriended here, --but new adventures will arrive, on the 
other side of my island, when we soon are living there.

Also my garden will be so much smaller, but surely ,and hopefully
with beautiful flowers and plants there, too. 
I hope I`m not neglecting you, too much, I`m still packing, and 
parting with things, but I try to visit you, whenever I can .
Thank you for so many wonderful friendships, all !!
Hugs and love from Dorthe

HELLO FROM ME, DEAR FRIENDS.

While still packing ,I wanted to create a birthday card for a few friends,
and among them my dear Julia  http://vintagewithlaces.blogspot.dk/

I know many of you have seen my gifts and cards on FB, but the friends of mine
not having a FB account, I want to thank you here, for their cards,
and gifts.

This beautiful nature card I received from dearest Julia, she knows I 
love birds and nature and created this wonderful card.
Isen`t it lovely, with the real feather attached .

Thank you so much my dear friend, and 
love and hugs to you.


This is the card I created for Julia, a mermaid  just 
visited from the Baltic Sea,


to take a travel, to far away from here,
to greet Julia.


The Paper mache  doll is still from https://www.etsy.com/dk-en/shop/jilliestuff
I love to use them for cards ,too.


And then I received this very beautiful back, from my other dearest friend Marie http://marie-lostbirdstudio.blogspot.dk/

Isen`t it gorgeous !!!!


And Oh my, inside a big bunch of wonderful materials to create with.


Some Marie bought, -and some is her own wonderful soldered pieces, which I so love.


Also the sweetest tag from her


and another one. 


Thank you my dear Marie, it was such a wonderful gift,
and you totally spoiled me.

Sending you love and hugs .

A HELLO FROM ME, TO MY DEAR FRIENDS

A short hello, to you all 
with a little tag made for a new friend.

Nothing much is going on here, apart from my packing 
the life live, here, down in lots of boxes,, to be
moved and packed out, on a new place , and for a new life.


I tried using more colors, on this tag, as the receiver ,loves
colors. The funny pattern comes from adding a piece
of paper napkin over  some kind of lace.
The birds nest I created from fresh grasses, and used a piece of
sea glass from the beach,which I soon have to say goodbye !!


I hope your weekend has been safe and wonderful, and wishes you all 
a lovely new week.
Thank you for always popping in, and for your wonderful comments.
They means a lot to me.

Hugs and love
Dorthe

TAKING A WEEKS PAUSE FROM BLOGGING LIFE !!

Hello dear friends, 
Showing a little card I created for a dear friends birthday.
I love to use old embroidered pieces, together with stencils, stamps and die cuts , and always have to add a little nature ,too!!


Here I also hand colored the bird and leaves !!


A new stencil showing bark from an old tree,
here mostly in white, and some lovely flowers.


Torn edges !!


I hope you like it :-) 


My grand daughter will visit with us for the next week, and I 
look forward being with her, and making tours and fun ,together.

Also a break in all the packing down my home, lol.

LITTLE HEART FOR SIMPLY NEUTRALS # 26


 I TRIED MY HAND ON EMBROIDERY AGAIN!!!
and created this little heart, first using the hammering
method of laying a flower between two pieces of nature
fibers, like cotton, or silk, and then using a hammer to add the
juices of the flower and stem, to the fabric.



This was a tiny white flowered wild flower, and as you see it 
resulted in rusty and brownish tones.
I enjoyed embroidering the flowers with neutral tones cotton 
threads , and adding a seambinding to hang it !!


This weeks neutrals also includes my most beautiful 
Madame Alfred Carriere  rose.


It is growing on the wall to my former shop, and have reached the roof this year,
So filled with beautiful fragrant roses .


This flower from a tulip tree, I pass when walking my afternoon tour,
was so pretty even it already started to decay !! 


This ,I know, is the last Simply Neutrals over at Wen`s , for the coming 
month, as our dear friend are to have summer holly day 
so I will thank her for now, for all the wonderful and lovely
parties we had so far .
Thank`s dear Wen.

I myself and my husband, have just sold our house and beautiful
beach area, and the coming month will be filled with
packing and moving to a new destination .
Please know that I might not be so much on blogs, and fb,
dear friends, but I will check on you and  be back again.

Love and hugs, Dorthe

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
Dorthe
