Artist Share

Hello All

I wanted to share with you a gift I received from Dorthe....
She is such an amazing artist as well as wonderful person.
I have enjoyed getting to know her and finding out we both
love nature. 


 She sent me a glorious box of goodies,
all wrapped in old papers and ribbon, and vintage hankie,
I was over the moon opening all the little packages inside...


 Dorthe creates the loveliest dolls!
Have you been to her site?
She makes amazing mermaids and all kinds of imaginative beauties! Really. 
This one is a sweet angel...with bell buttons and rusty wire for wings.
She is perfectly crafted, every bit of her!
I have given her a place of honor guarding a corner of my art room.
She perches prettily on my table.

She sent along many pieces of beautiful fabric, vibrant and rich in texture.
There was vintage lace, beads, ribbon, two lovely religious metals,
and she also made this amazing collage art too! 

Do you see the little bundle of driftwood? 
She sent that as well...
She knows I love driftwood, shells, and stones.
The best part is that they are from near where Dorthe lives,
and she herself chose them. 

Thank you so much for your sweet and thoughtful gifts. I will treasure them all!


If you visit her lovely blog you will see her newest creation the Virgin Mary and Jesus. 
 Just click on the image above. 

I am already dreaming of using some of the fabric and lace Dorthe sent. I think some of it will end up working beautifully as I create My Garden Tea. 
Yay!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
I hope you are all having a very good week.
Hugs,
Terri
