A little Sneak Peek and A New Shop

Yesterday was the last day for shipping the boxes for the
Black and White Petite Box Swap
over at Speckled Egg


I don´t want to spoil it for my partners
so you´ll have to do with a little sneak peek.

Here´s a few of the inside of my boxes



and a little close up of the outside.
This was so much fun and I hope my swap partners
like them too.



I´ll show you everything when the boxes have arrived
and ofcourse I´ll show you the ones I´ll recieve too.

*************

Just wanted to let you know
that I have a new shop too,
and the last couple of days I have been working
to setup and fill the shop with creations.

Click on the logo if you would like to visit:


You don´t need to sign up and be a member to

So now you´ll find my stuff at:

I do combine shipping on purchases from all of them.

A lot of goodies arrived in the studio today
going to post about that in a later post
Can´t wait to start create with that

Wishing you all a wonderful day

A Few Flea Market Finds

Found a new flea market today
well - a new one for me that is.
A flea market I didn´t know off
not too far from where I live
and of course I had to check it out.

Here´s what I brought home today



two beautiful old french plates in blue and white


a little bunch of lace pieces including


this wonderful white collar and


this beautiful peach colored collar too
I love the look of this one
so soft



This fun little cake stand



and a cloche with a wonderful old french plate

Autumn Art Party

I´ve always found it so much fun to try and create items for Halloween.
Since we don´t celebrate Halloween in Denmark
it´s a fun challenge too.



tiny fabric pumpkins
in dusty green and white
with lace and twine


fun round tags - created digitally



more tags


a sweet kind of Shabby Chic Halloween banner
created from old book pages and bleeched fabric
with sewn on images on muslin


some more tags - digitally designed



and this altered art box piece
I´m quite happy with this one
and it was so much fun to make


I hope I have captured the spirit right
I did have lots of fun
there´s just something with that Halloween thingy

I´m linking this post to The French Cupboards


Pop over and have a look
at all the entries.

Happy Autumn

Dolls Dress Creation

Remember the dolls dresses I got from Lisa

I created a sweet and simple decoration to have on the wall
in my studio with one of them




as background a vintage child book cover
you can just see a glimpse through the lace





wrinkled up in the corners
and decorated with vintage buttons


the dress is then attached on top of the lace
and decorated with a little piece og lace
and a beautiful jewelry piece


a wire added as hanger
and this is how it looks

I just love that old tattered dress
and it fits perfect to the color of that old book cover too
a sweet and simple decoration.

It´s not offen I manage to create something for myself
so I´m really happy with the outcome of this.
It´s on the wall next to my working table
and I enjoy it every day.

Have a wonderful and creative weekend
my sweet friends
