More great talent to share!

I'm sure you all know how much talent there is
out there in blogland amongst so many
many bloggers and today
I'm going to share
with you again!

I know first hand how really beautiful these are because
I have been holding them and feeling all
the lovely energy that has gone into creating
these gifts.

This first package arrived from my dearest Dorthe
of denlillelade - See how sweetly everything
is wrapped?

Many of you know Dorthe for her exquisite dollmaking

amongst many other talents in the world of mixed media.

This is such an amazing frozen Charlotte doll from

Dorthe's own collection which she has adorned
so beautifully in gorgeous vintage laces 
and doilies over a netted skirt -
isn't she just precious?
her dress is embellished with bling, buttons,
jewellery and is wearing a sweet little love note.
Her wings are fashioned from old papers
and fabric.

and now she sits on the old treadle sewing machine on a stack 
of depression glass bowels in my home for me to
How lucky can one girl be?

This beautiful bird tag also created by Dorthe 

was attached to the parcel
along with this

vintage heart.

This elegant woman adorned in pearls

is surrounded in layers of frothy ruffles and pretty
laces, frills and flowers.

I did say these women were talented so now you know what I mean!

Our special friendship now spans more than 3 years
and I count my blessings with friends like these.

Now Sharon of 
Livewire Jewelery fame

is another very special friend who creates

the most amazing handmade artisan jewelery
such as this piece above as well as earings
and rings etc.
I love the etching on the copper piece 
the punched out word of "Love"
Sharon also is an extremely heartfelt mixed media artist
creating paper and fabric collages and tags
such as the one above.
Her creations are available in her Etsy shop
and the link is on her blog above.

She also knows how I adore vintage laces

spoiled me with these stunning pieces above
and I am so proud to be wearing your necklace!

I am so very grateful to you Sharon - 
your kindness is extraordinary!

I'm joining in at Timewashed for the
Blissful Whites Wednesday with Becky this week
as well as What's it Wednesday - Ivy and Elephants.
So come on over and see more talent there too!
