THIS WAS EMELY`S HOME !!


Yes we are back to the story of Emely, here in Wendy`s Simply Neutrals # 165


I want to show you the house she lived in, back then, a wonderful Londoner house.
I think the trees in the front have been beautiful ,looking at ,summer,
autumn, winter, and spring !!She lived in number 47, just as I did as child!!


Even it is difficult to see it here, I used many laces on top of each other, togethere with the
wonderful paper napkin tree, and the beautiful velvet flower ,which I have bought from 
Liz -http://lululizinlalaland.blogspot.dk/ in her wonderful Etsy shop 


The hearts are embroidered on my sewing mashine , and 
shows the love she felt for this childhood place.


I hope you will visit Wendy, and all the others,- linking to this , her,
lovely party ,to see their very different, but amazing art.

I will be around again visiting you all, now Mathilde is back home ,again !!

Wishing you the most fantastic February, all.

Hugs and love
Dorthe

A NEW PAGE IN MY JOURNAL ABOUT EMELY


Yes Emely is her name, and here she has already grown ,
she is celebrating her 12 years birthday,
having taken her photo at the photographer !!



She got the tiniest sweet cross, and a greeting from France !!


I love to use a little lovely rose colors here ,
of which I colored some laces myself !!


This rest of the week I will spend with this sweetest girl,
coming to visit me here. 
I know we will have fun together, she is such a darling
and I love her so much !!


So dear friends, see you next week, when I`m

MY FIRST PAGE IN MY JOURNAL FOLLOWING SUZY`S GORGEOUS CLASS !


I`m adding this to Wendy`s Simply Neutrals # 15

As you maybe remember this little girl was also on the front page 
I created long before Christmas, and we will follow her 
through some of her BIG days in life .
Her she is with her mother !!


Of course I am not lucky enough, to have photos from the same family through
a lifetime, so I gathered between my loved old cabinet cards ,persons
looking just a bit alike, to make this story, LOL.



Also used lots of old and newer lace for this page , where 
history almost disappear in the  mist,of years gone by !!


I also used a wonderful wallpaper behind them, thinking
it could have looked like that, in the sitting room of her parents home.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Today we have had a lot of snow here, but only a few days ago
the sky looked so very beautiful a late afternoon, with drifting
clouds in rose and blue/grey , with the tree making wonderful
silhouettes ,in the front !!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you are all safe and warm, and send you 
wishes for a happy week.

Hugs and love from Dorthe

HELLO BLOGGERS ,HAVE YOU SEEN AND READ THIS


I DON`T KNOW HOW MUCH IT WILL AFFECT YOU, OR ME, ,BUT 
HERE ARE THE NEW RULES FOR FOLLOWING  VIA FRIEND CONNECT!!

We announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.


As part of the plan starting the week of Jan.11th, 2016 we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.


We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.

We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.


I HOPE TO STILL BE ABLE TO SEE YOU ALL, AND FOLLOW YOU ALL ,ALSO AFTER
JANUARY 11 th..

HUGS FROM DORTHE

Simply Neutrals #14



Simply Neutrals no. 14. 

This very neutral doll I created for my  dear friend Suzy http://suziqusthreadworks.blogspot.dk/
as christmas gift.
She is ,as you can see on her face, happy to be on her way, to
Down Under, and to Suzy, 


She was supposed to be maybe a girl with more zest, and kicking,
(can you say such in English?) but this kind and neat girl, took over.



And when the doll speaks herself, it is not easy to change ,lol.
She is wearing old fabrics and laces .
Her underwear is painted on, as is her boots ! 
And her shawl is pure wool ,to keeep warm.


This is my nature right now, so very cold and icy,
as you can see all nature is packed in ice from the waves throwing
water to the shore.


So very beautiful, is Father Frost, when visiting.


I hope you are keeping warm and cozy, the ones of you 
in the northern hemisphere, I know that my dolls is having a 
feast right now, with sun and beautiful warm weather, in
her new residence !

Sending you all 
warm hugs and love
Dorthe

hope for love to spread in the world, and pray for it to be a safer
place, for all humans, wherever in the world they live.


I will try to always remember this lovely words:

while living it, and not only in  back glance !

MORE GIFTS FROM TWO OF MY VERY CLOSE AND DEAR FRIENDS.

Yes I chose to show you more gifts from two very dear and longtime friends!!
I know it is a long post from me, but I so wanted to honor both friends ,by showing their 
beautiful gifts and hearts,-before Christmas, so I hope you will
be with me all through the post !!

The one I opened up first arrived from dear Lynne https://lynnesbowsandbelles.wordpress.com/
Isen`t this one wrapped so beautifully, with the gorgeous tag, an art piece all
in its own !!


This is the card, deserving so much more,than this photo gives it,
but if you click on it, you can see the shine ,and beautiful texture ,
and the little but so effective adds Lynne did.


And Oh my , look what I found inside , --the most gorgeous 
jewelry, that Lynne created herself, just to me-.


See the texture, the little cheesecloth and gorgeous  rhinestones, I
so love it ,and know it will be one of my very used and treasured 
necklaces. It is so very stunning, Thank you my very friend.


Also my dear Lynne, gifted me with this special and angelic canvas,
which fill the room with lovely shine, and the peace of Christmas.


I love the material she used to deck the stamped word, and which gives it 
a blurred or foggy look, with tiny bubbles ,which gives an ethereal feeling.
It is gorgeous, Lynne, dear.


As extras, yes you read it right,...I was also gifted a bunch of wonderful
paper clay items, Lynne created herself,-- some lovely snowball ribbon.
and blinky "rhinestone" ribbon. 
What a feast and surprise ,to open up for all these lovelies !
Thank you so much  from my heart my very dear friend!!


The other dear friend of mine whom also send me wonderful gifts and greetings

See this beautifully wrapped gift  and her sweetest envelope,
Santa looks at me as to say : "Don`t open up until 24 /12 "  but
 dear Marie, wrote me not to listen to him , lol.


Here is the card which is such a beautiful, Christmas card all in neutral tones ,
and with one of the most lovely drawings of Santa, I think.
Look at all the layers ,rusty bells,and snowflakes, and old papers,
I love it Marie.


AND I also love your amazing gift. It is a beautiful Christmas treasure,
With the soldered bottle neck, the lovely tiny tree, with star and sign,
and oh see the gorgeous snowflake, glittering from the rhinestones.


Inside are lovely silver glitter, pearls, and two little
signs :love and peace-click the photo to see.


One thing I also found great is this stamp on the back of the envelope,
it looks wonderful,dear ! 


Now this one with the very spoken text, I have not dared to open up, but
last week Marie wrote me to say, it was ok, and only for fun, :0 
so as we are to be with my daughter ,grand kids and their father, this year,
and as I know there will be so many gifts for the kids, I preferred to open up all,
in my own piece, and so little lovely creations, would not disappear in papers !! 


And boy it was a surprise,... Marie  know that I for long have wanted,
to buy something like this to learn to create soldered charms, and bezels, but
that all I can buy here in DK, are very expensive tools for making
Creme brulee , and I did not have money for such.
Thank you for your kind heart, and sweetness, my dear Marie , I look so much
forward trying this after Christmas !!
And thank you also to you from my heart for all your so beautiful gifts to me.



So this was the last ,I promise, :o post before Christmas Eve,

Again I wish you all a

BLESSED, AND HAPPY CHRISTMAS
 and

A HAPPY AND HEALTHY,AND SAFE, NEW YEAR !!

Hugs and love from Dorthe
