From the wood....from the sea ~

When I opened this sweet package, I knew there would be treasures inside!
Dorthe of Den Lille Lade won my little bottle brush giveaway at Christmas and
after receiving my little tidbit gift ended up sending me a gift back!!!
How's that for a giveaway?
But you have to know Dorthe.
She is a precious soul, an amazing artist....and truly a giving spirit.

She requested my address here at the farmhouse so I knew something wonderful
would soon arrive from Denmark ~
that still blows my mind you know, DENMARK!
Isn't it so wonderful that this blogging world brings us all together,
no matter where we live, what our income is, no matter how far apart....
we are all like minds...loving the same stuff....we are instantly kindred spirits!

Here's what precious Dorthe sent to me, I just have to share:

All wrapped up so beautifully....

Skeleton leaves from the wood....fragments of nature washed up from the sea.....

A gorgeous old print on the back of an old paper....

Beautiful papers, ribbons and charms hold treasures inside!

Just look at this gorgeous artwork Dorthe created...
I can remember swooning over it on her blog!
And here it is now, in my hands.

And look at this precious angel!!!!
Dorthe creates these beautiful angels and the attention to detail is amazing!!!!
She's really small too ~ and so very beautiful.

Dear sweet Dorthe....I am so very honored to own your gorgeous artwork!!!
Thank you so much for each and every gift dear friend,
I will treasure them all!

Yes, I enjoy Facebook....there are so many friends to connect with ~
I also really like Pinterest....
it's perfect for finding so many wonderful ideas and saving them ~

But my blog has been the most wonderful thing of all.
It has allowed me to meet so, so many precious friends....
friends that love what I love.
We truly are kindred spirits.

Have a beautiful Wednesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

As soon as I saw the doll, I knew I'd seen Dorothe's blog before, Dawn. She is just lovely! Dorothe sent you such lovely treasures; what a great bloggy friend!

Dorthe said...

You get such lovely gifts, and this is so filled with treasures. I keep thinking someone will take pity on me and send me some really old lace. I have a hard time finding it here in Idaho, I think someone bought it all along time ago...darn it:) It snow this morning, it is really beautiful. Thinking of Dear Dawn with love, Mary

Theresa said...

You LUCKY Lady! I adore that sweet angel, what a sweetheart to give ALL of those wonderful gifts to you!

Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

Dear Dawn,
Don't you just love blogging? What absolutely wonderful treasures you received from our sweet friend, Dorthe. She is so wonderfully talented! I love all the things from nature she sent you. And the bird creation is just beautiful and so is the wrapping!I was lucky enough to win one of her adorable angels too and I just love her.
Enjoy your gifts dear girl.
Hugs and love,

Oh, what treasures. What could be better than a friend sharing treasures with you. Everything is just wonderful, as is the way she packaged it, and the angel is wonderful. At first I thought I saw candles on her head and that she might be St. Lucia, but I don't seem to see them in the bottom photo. Best of all - a friendship~! Blogging is just wonderful.

Dear Dawn,
What sweet treasures from Dorthe-She is so talented and truly an adorable person. This is what I love about blogging too, bringing everyone into their own communities! I don't find an art community around me as easily as I find friends around the world loving the same things I do. You were one of my first followers and I so appreciate it!!! I only wish I could dedicate more time to it, maybe in the future. Take care, dear friend!
