Time flies



 Hello my dear friends,
time is just flying by and I can't believe July is almost gone. When I spotted the lovely bezel at Absolutely Everything ( Spellbinders ) it had to come home with me because I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
 

A sacred heart necklace and I love the way it turned out.

A few days ago I received a belated Birthday gift from my friend Lynn @ Trash To Treasure Art
Dear Lynn spoiled me with vintage buttons, doilies and laces.
                               
She created this beautiful and simply perfect bird tag for me and I just love it.

 More things for me to play with including a beautiful bezel from Spellbinder. Lynn designs for Spellbinders A Gilded Life and her work is just gorgeous. Again I'm sure most of you know her and if not please stop by and see her - you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much, dear Lynn and you know already how much I love everything.


Will play catch up with you tonight. Have a wonderful upcoming weekend and as always thank you so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment. It is always appreciated.

Hugs and love,

A New Design and A Gift

Hello my dear friends,
after more than four years it was time to redesign my Blog.Thanks to Karen from Valentine Design
my ideas could be transferred into such a beautiful design. It was easy and such a pleasure to work
with Karen on the project and I'm real happy with the results. Thank you so much Karen.

Due to these activities I'm somwhat late to share the gifts from  Suzy.

Who doesn't dream of Paris? I do and you can imagine my delight when I opened up my presents from dear Suzy  @ Suziqusthreadwoks  and found this most beautiful work of art. 

Look at all the details and layers of laces. Suzy does such gorgeous work and I'm sure most of you know her already and if not do stop by and visit her -  you won't be dissapointed.

The photos speak for themselves.

Suzy also spoiled me with this stunning fabric bag which has two pockets and found a special place in my studio to hold precious treasures. Thank you again dear Suzy and you know already how much I love your gifts.
 
 
 
At the moment I'm so busy but nevertheless found the time to start practicing  creating fabric flowers.
Here is my very first  one which might need a bit of improvement.
Have a lovely weekend and thank you so much for stopping by. Hope to catch up with you tonight.
 
Hugs and love,

The Spoiling Continues

Hello my dear friends,
today I would like to share some more fabulous gifts I received for my birthday. Look what my dear dear friend Liz @ Lululiz In Lalaland spoiled me with. French cabinet cards which she found at a flea in France. Liz always finds fantastic  treasures and has an Etsy shop where she sells some of her flea finds. Lace and trimmings as well as Vintage letter tiles - spelling out my name.

Thank you so much again,dear Liz . Can't wait to use the lovely ladies in my soldered charms.

The beautiful friendship tag below came from my friend Martina @ Stempel-Gewerkel
Don't you just love the colors she used?  The ribbons and charms where wrapped up so pretty in an old letter. I took photos but had no memory card in the camera - sorry.


Thank you so much again, dear Martina. The tag is on display in my studio.

When my sweet friend Julia @ Vintage with Laces asked me what I wished for my birthday, the answer was a bird collage which speaks for itself.  But wait till you see what else she surprised me with:)

This gorgeous French hand bag  left me speechless.

                                                               The front and

                                                     the back:)

Inside the bag, hidden in the pockets I found this beautiful fabric tag and if that wasn't enough...


she also created these flash cards for me. Thank you so much again, my dear Julia.

It is  such a blessing to have friends who know you well and spoil you for your birthday .
But the best gift of all is the friendship.
I'm sure you all know these lovely ladies by now - if not, please do stop by and pay them a visit you won't be disappointed. 
Have a lovely Sunday my friends and as always thank you so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.

Hugs and love,
