A Year Ending and A New Year Beginning

With this year ending
and Christmas now behind us -
for some very joyous and for others a little sad
I thought I might share a few gifts I was given from
blogging friends
including Liz

This most beautiful book of tags.

The amount of detail in each one of these
is incredible as are all of the images

she has used.
There is one for every season too.
Liz thank you so much for making these for me
you are just so kind, clever and thoughtful
you really are in my thoughts at the moment
dear friend!

And this most exquisite piece of artistry and creativity
from my very dear friend, Dorthe of

I just have to share some of the detail in this so
that you can really appreciate the artistic talent Dorthe has.

Oh those lovely big blue eyes
with that joyful smile
looking so gorgeous!!!
And look at the tiny fingers so cleverly shaped

as well as the beautiful shoes she is wearing

and the embellishments on her dress!

There is only one word I can think of to express this gorgeous
fairy doll
and that is "Stunning"!

Thank you so much my dear sweet friend
she is so happy to be living with me now in a much
warmer climate too.
You have been just so kind and generous to me - 
 I will really treasure her!
I am so very fortunate to have you in my life!
I have a few more special items to share with you next time
but for now I just wanted you to cast your eyes
over this beauty!

Can you believe that this is just one rose stem
Just look at all of the blooms -
her name is Sally Holmes
and I can only assume the size of this gorgeous rose
is due to the most abundant rain we have been
having this Spring and Summer here

Wishing everyone a most fulfilling New Year creating
what you love, sharing precious moments,
and remembering little acts of kindness to each
and everyone!

Love, Suzy xxx


  1. Such beautiful, beautiful treasure you have been gifted!!! So much tallent and love wrapped in each cherished creation.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  2. Dear Suzi,

    Such wonderful and beautiful gifts from the heart!!
    Dorthe is such an angel to us all. Her doll that she gave to you is just exceptionally beautiful!!

    I wish you a wonderful New Year filled with all the health, joy and happiness you
    could ever wish for.

    Love and Smiles,


  3. Such artistic treasures are worthy to be shared with all of your followers. I see a little of Suzy in the face of the art doll. Expressive eyes that see the world in such a colorful way.

  4. Wonderful gifts to treasure, Suzy. They are delightful, and I'm so glad you shared the talents of Liz and Dorthe.
    Wishing you every Blessing of the New Year.

  5. Your gifts are true treasures from lovely generous ladies. May you cherish them forever. Happy New Year...

  6. Everything I was going to say about your lovely gifts has already been said in the previous comments Suzi. Oh my, how lucky you are!
    and those roses!! you grew them yourself here in Australia? They are such a glory to see, and I'm sure they must have a very lovely perfume too!?
    All the best for the new year. :)

  7. What a sweet gift of embellished tags! Very stunning~ And the doll Dorthe made is so beautiful!
    I am glad that it is a new year. Too much happened last year...I hope this one slows down a bit. I want this to be a more relaxed and creative year...but sometimes we aren't in control of what happens, but we can make creativity happen when we have a few moments to spare. May you enjoy your warm weather for this season. It seems funny that your Holiday season is warm and ours is cold. Your rose on the one branch is amazing. It looks like an old-fashioned rose, a rare one...what bliss to have such beauty in your garden.
    I always enjoy coming to your blog to see what you are making or when you share other artists' work.
    May you have a blessed New Year!
