Gifts in the Mail!

I'd like to share a couple of gifts that arrived in the mail
Firstly from my dear Dorthe, (Denlillelade) one of the
 most talented dollmakers
you will ever find sent me this amazing gift
from Bornholm.

 Oh my goodness! and what a darling she is!
 Dressed so elegantly in her handmade vintage broderie anglaise
 lace dress gathered at the waist with some white
velvet ribbon with a bow charm! 

She arrived no worse for wear after her very long trip
across the ocean

 with her pretty bow in her long shaggy hair - 
her bloomers are sheer so
not to be revered!!!


 with the prettiest expression painted on her face 
and now she lives happily with her sister
angel who arrived last year.

 Now don't these two dolls look as if they just belong together?
Sisters together can live forever!
Sincere heart felt thanks my sweet Dorthe
- a friendship so special
and so dear to me!

 Look at this card which arrived with it -
so many collaged textures, papers and lace
- it's a piece of art to treasure in itself!

And all the way from England came another most
exquisite card made by dear Liz 

 Isn't that such a beautiful image and she's framed
with some the softest rich feathers too

with this were a vintage darning mushroom.
I can feel just how well used and loved this is from
holding and using it!!!
(yes I have already put to the test too!) 
as well as a huge stash of
incredible vintage ephemera such as 

and these superb photos and postcards to
play this girl knows me
far too well
after our years of friendship.

Thank you so much dear Liz - you already know
how much I appreciate it all!!!

Speaking of cards I have just completed my first two
Easter cards which I will have in my Etsy shop

Thank you all for you kind comments -
it is such a pleasure to have you visit me -
I am truly grateful!!!
