Gratitude

Hello Everyone
This post is overdue, a post to share some of the exquisite gifts I received for my birthday. Let me, in this post share with you the delights I received from Marie, Dorthe and Martina.  Those lovely friends along with others sent me beautiful cards, tags, hand-crafted gifts, craft goodies, e-mail wishes and e-cards, showering me with kindness.
I count myself as so lucky to be the owner of Marie’s soldered charms. This birthday I received another piece of her soldered art, the most beautiful altered domino (?) which is beyond charming.
I know that many of you already know Marie but if there is anyone who hasn’t visited her Blog before, please do so because it is such a delight to view her creations whether fabric, paper or soldered and she also shares photographs of her beautiful garden and blooms that she might have picked and artfully displays around her home. Marie (Lost Bird Studio)
This is so special with that darling image and  with lovely delicate touches such as the gems.marie1Also this card with the same sweet face.  marie2From another lovely friend, dear Dorthe, I received this most stunning fabric wall hanging. It isn’t simply that it is made with beauty, it is also the exquisite storytelling.  It is astonishing that Dorthe actually created the Frozen Charlotte  which I actually thought was authentic … she had me fooled!  Dorthe captured seaweed behind that plastic window, it is a piece overflowing with the sweetest of touches. dorthe2Dorthe also gifted me this sweet collage.  Isn’t the colour palette so delicate and pretty and look at that sweet bird’s nest she created.dorthe1From Martina I received this incredible Steampunk influenced journal and tag. It is once you hold it in your hands that you truly experience the magic of the colours, the shimmer and the texture and believe it or not, that buckle actually works as a closure, so clever!  The matching tag is fabulous with that sweet face and look at the glistening flowers.martinaAren’t I one lucky lady to be the owner of such treasures! To have art I can view each and every day, art to wear and art to write my inner thoughts or doodles, well let’s just say that life doesn’t get much better.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this post.
Wishes
Lynne

    I have seen and admired the work of these three incredibly talented ladies around Blogland. I always love a visit to Marie’s Lost Bird blog – you have reminded me that I don’t do this nearly enough. Dorthe’s gifts were breath-taking and that journal and tag are so pretty: I so love the face on the tag. Lucky you, Lynne; but you deserve these beautiful gifts. You really appreciate beauty. Thank you for all the generosity and inspiration you provide. May they bring you great pleasure. Julie Ann xxx
