Gifts from a very dear friend

Quite recently I was very spoilt in receiving these
most gorgeous gifts

in the mailfrom a
very dear friend, Dorthe, at
I am sure that most people who know this amazing woman
know what a most wonderful art doll and mixed media artist that she is!

It was my birthday a little while ago and
she wanted to show her
wonderful kindness
making all of these beautiful gifts
which I thought you would love
to see.
The most gorgeous card above
has one of the most serene and angelic images
I have seen.  It has been overlayed with
the skeleton of an aged leaf
but still in it's complete

A most cleverly collaged
and colourful little wall hanging complete with a driftwood hanger
(no doubt collected from the beach below her home!)
and depicting two close friends
And just look at the gorgeous colours she has chosen
to create this piece with.  I have no doubt that Dorthe hasdyed all of the fabrics she has used.
And as Dorthe knows just how much I really love her driftwood angels
the package would have not been complete
without one of these
of course,

created in the richest of colours such as burnt oranges, magenta,
lime green and pinks.

Just look at that shot of reddest hair
with all the fine details of flowers, buttons, trims and beads.
Dorthe made it, as she says,
"in my colours".
What a beautiful smiling face
with the biggest blue eyes!

if that wasn't enough!

This very beautiful tag!
How beautiful is this other beautiful face
with this angel clasping
a white lilly!
embellished so sweetly with a rose, lace and ribbon. 

Our wonderful friendship has only blossomed through our close
communication in blogland -
where else
you live on the otherside of the world!

Thank you so much sweet Dorthe - you are the dearest friend to me
and I am ever grateful for your
loving friendship.
