christmas gifts

Hello there!
I just have to share these darling gifts from my very dear friends Dorthe  Den Lille Lade and Alexandra ( Xela )   Cottage Dreams.

 Dorthe sent me this gorgeous angel doll. Isn`t she awesome?


She also made this very pretty fabric wall collage. Such a lovely piece of vintage art!


Still more pretties!!!


Happy me that it hangs now in my studio! :)





Below is a photo of all the lovely things Alexandra sent me:

 
A wonderful altered box...

 
... vintage baby shoes ... sooooo sweet...


 and so many other beautiful goodies...


Thank you so so much, dear friends! So many wonderful things, it made me smile!

 Have a nice week, all of you!

what sweet gifts! i wanted to pin the picture of how you displayed the fabric collages --- but pinterest says they have blocked your site b/c it is spam and/or inappropriate.
WHAT? that is just crazy!!! anyway, I thought I'd let you know b/c I would want to know if my blog was doing that.
Thanks for sharing your pretty vignettes!

I've just become interested in altered art. I was a sewer, but broke my ankle on both sides and can't sew. I'm learning and I love your blog!

What absolutely gorgeous gifts. I love them all, the angel doll and other dolls are exquisite. My favorite was the cone by Alexandra. I'm a sucker for cones of any kind, love the variety that can be used to make them. Lucky you with wonderful friends that send you such pretties. You must be a great friend also.
Happy 2013 Love your blog

Hello Dear Viola
Dorthe and Alexandra certainly have spoiled you with some precious gifts all in whites. Love that image in the collage from Dorthe and those sweet little shoes from Alexandra.
It was very much an angel and doll Christmas and loved seeing them hung in your studio with all of your creative works.
Sending hugs to you,
Suzy

hallo viola, ich bin gerade so richtig 'flabbergasted' (dieses gefühl gibt es nur auf englisch!) über deine methode, bilder mit teebaumöl zu übertragen!!!! bin aromatherapeutin und habe immer wieder öle, die nach einigen monaten die haut reizen können, gerade teebaumöl gehört dazu. das wäre für mich, die auch eine kreative grafikerin ist, eine super-recycling-methode. habe dich auf pinterest entdeckt. daaanke vom super-sonnigen atlantik! (wohne siet 13 jahren in südwest-irland)
