SPRING DRIFTWOOD MERMAID !


Yes a little spring on its way here, at least my mermaid
shows it will soon bloom and grow, in my garden.


I used a lovely piece of driftwood, for her body, and
used the paper napkin to add a little more interest!!
Also on her wings  ,which is made from cardstock ,
I added paper napkin !


Her tail is old laces , and a bit of old found fishing nets.


She is smiling happily ,to welcome all good things!!!


Tulips almost finished, but so very beautiful, all the same!


How are you all doing, dear friends ?
I hope your weekend has been lovely, and 
wishes you a wonderful new week !!

Hugs and love

COLLAGE WITH TRANSFERE ONTO ZINC !

This collaged hanger has already been recieved by 
a very dear friend, so I can show you now!


I transferred the beautiful woman to a zinc tag, and love the result,
also added my waxed old papers, making them look like
foux resined papers, soft to touch and able to see through !


I also used old tapestry papers, and different old laces from
my hideaways !!
The photoes could have been sharper, for you to see the details
better, sorry!!


Here today, we have very cold weather again, even snowing a bit, but not staying 
luckily !! But storm and grey weather has returned !

I hope you are maybe more lucky than me, but know that some of you 
in USA are still fighting with snow.
Lets hope we will ,all, soon have more normal spring weather.

Saturday hugs and love

MY FIRST DOLL, AFTER A LONG PAUSE !!

One of my dearest friends, just celebrated her birthday some weeks ago, and I wanted
to create something special for her, and knew she wanted a white doll.


So here she is, SUZY`s white doll ,-almost 
"anatomically" right created ,you will know what I mean, if you
look closely in the pictures !!


I loved to use old fabrics and laces ,and the wonderfully heavy yarn
for her hair.


I`m so happy that Suzy love her, and that she is now living far away
Down Under !!


Another sweet friend WENDY http://appleapricot.blogspot.dk/, had told me
that her little boy Sam ,already for christmas had drawn me something,and
that now it was on its way, and just look ,what this dear boy had made for me .
THANK YOU SAM, for your wonderful drawing  !!!
Also thank you, to you  dearWendy for the most beautiful card ,you gifted me .


From dear JILLAYNE http://quiltingfabrications.blogspot.dk/ I recieved this
adorable woolen heart , in my favorite tone,-Thank you my sweet friend, so very much.Jillayne
creates amazing fabric art, and sweet little wonders,too.


And from CAROL ,  http://queenbesalteredneeds.blogspot.dk/  this beautiful art hanger, arrived....
it is so wonderful with the sepia old papers and the charlotte doll.


Carol also gifted me these two lovely charlottes ,just because she is 
such a sweet and lovely woman, and I`m so happy, for them.
Charlottes are not easy to find, and impossible to buy both here, and
as far as I know ,also from Germany, their "homeland" 


Thank you so very much dear Carol, it was the
sweetest thing to do!!!


And last but certainly NOT LEAST ,I was the most lucky one to winn ,last months

FEBRUARY INSIDE AND OUTSIDE !!


February is already more than half gone , and in Denmark this
month was very mild, compared with what we are normally used to see.



But even we did not have much snow it was cozy being inside the warm house,
enjoying a beautiful tulip, and creating a card for a friend. 
The flower is a new stamp I bought  from That`s Crafty ,and the qoute too.


Under is a paper napkin, -and the flower, and butterflys are coloured with Brushos.


As you can see on my photoes ,which are both taken in my garden, the weather 
has been both  "green "-


and "white".


Nothing as beautiful as newfallen snow !!

I hope dear friends, your February has been beautiful ,too
creative and with cozy hours.

Love and hugs
