My precious friends...

I can't tell you how many dear friends
I've made along the way
with this wonderful blogging journey!

It will be seven years this coming February and I have met so many
amazing friends along the way ~
Some have even been my friends since the very beginning!
I feel as though Dorthe of Den Lille Lade is one of those friends.
We have followed each other for such a long time....
cheered one another on and are such kindred spirits in
what we love with our taste in art and most everything.

I recently received a beautiful package from Dorthe,
who lives in Denmark, by the way, right on the Baltic Sea coastline ~
she sent me several treasures and I knew you would love to see them!

So much gorgeousness!!!!

Wonderful driftwood fragments that she gathers on the Baltic Sea coastline...

A gorgeous heart fabric collage! I love all of the elements Dorthe adds...
So much thought goes into her artwork ~

Even a lone tag is an amazing work of art!!!
I love it so much...
And Dorthe even created the leaf stamp herself!

Beautiful old treasures...photographs, ledger papers
written in a language I do not understand but love!

And these beautiful old wooden tools ~
Can YOU tell me what they were used for?

Maybe tatting?

I just had to share such wonderful mail with you ~
Because I know you love what I love!!!

I hope you had a relaxing Labor Day weekend, we certainly did!
I did cut out fabric for about FORTY lavender sachets
as I have an order for ten.
And I always over-do it so....
and I also worked on several egg soap orders ~
but I know you're sick of seeing pics of egg soap!!!

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Every item from our Dorthe is gorgeous especially the heart made by her loving hands along with the sweet leaf stamp she created for you.
Enjoy the treasures!
Hugs and love,

Dorthe has sent you lovely things before...I think I remember. Your interests and creativity are very similar. Nothing like having a soul sister!

Maureen said...

Such treasures! You are so lucky to have something from dear Dorthe.

What a beautiful package of sweetness:) Enjoy your day dear Dawn, HUGS!

Dawn, What a beautiful gift, from a beautiful person! What's not to love...each item has it's own beauty. Love the wood fragments, so smooth and lovely and vintage photos...oh, I see beautiful things being made! About those wooden 'tools'...I don't know what they are, maybe a kind of bobbin, but I do know they aren't for tatting. Dorthe is a very generous and thoughtful person! Have a wonderful day...hugs, pat

Such wonderful things from Dorthe. The wooden spindle type things are lace bobbins. Different countries have different types - also different areas in the UK have different shapes - some have beads hung from them. My grandmother taught me, many years ago and I still have some of her bobbins and some lace she made.
Enjoy your wonderful gifts

Nancy Hood said...

Wow, gorgeous. And so much like your art :) made with the heart and soul of the artist. The wood was so smooth and had rounded ends. That surprised me. Praying your holiday weekend was filled with much love and laughter :) ~Nancy
