 I´m finally back.
My internet connection is up and running again

have been or maybe you can.
Not been able to connect with anyone.
Not being able to visit you all.
I feel so out of the loop

It´s amazing how lost you can been
with no internet - what did we do before....


In the meantime I have reached 500+ followers

I still can´t believe this
and I´m so truly honoured
that so many wants to pop in here
and visit me and my humble little studio.

I want to show my gratitude

No Connection

Hi All

Just wanted to pop in and let you know
I´m still here.

Our cabel broke down due to meltwater
so I have been without connection since
last saturday, and it´s going to last
another week to be fixed.

The cable company have provided me with a
very very slow wireless connection
until everything is solved.
This will allow me to keep up with
emails and my shops
but it won´t load blogs and pages with
lots of photos...

Thank you SO much for all your comments
on my last posts and
welcome to all my new followers.
I so appreaciate all of you.

I´ll do my best to keep up
with all of you when I get my
normal (faster) connection back.

If I haven´t visit you lately
you now know why...sign.

I really hope this will get fixed soon
and in the meantime
I´m working on the promised
500 followers giveaway.

Wishing you all a lovely day
Tina ♥♥♥

Heart Creations

I bought in some burlap
and decided to create a few hearts
now that Valentines Day is approaching

then searched for some
pretty images.
These are printed on the burlap
and decorated with a little bit of silver glitter 

more pretty images
printed on muslin.
A little bit of lace
and a string as hanger.

I really like how they turned out.

Wishing you all a very pretty day.

A Beautiful Swap

In december Sweet Ann and I decided
to do a privat swap.

I have been a long time admirer of Anns creations
so I was beyond trilled that she wanted
to do a swap with me.

I love everything she does and her style
is just amazing.

This is how the package looked like
when I opened the box.
oooohhhhh... drooling..

so beautifully packed
with lovely seambinding, lace and
yummi silver tinsel.

I love those old books so pretty with
an old christmas decoration
and a beautiful bottlebrush tree.

We can´t get anything like that over here, so I´m so
happy for my little tree.
I saved all the silver tinsel in a tiny bag too.

Here´s a wonderful vintage pincushion.
The buttom is silver and inside little sewing notions.
Together with a beautiful old tin
decorated with lace and seambinding
and with a cabinet card on top.

This is the inside of the box.
I haven´t seen anything that pretty.
A tiny brooken mirror with an old photo in the lid
and there´s more....

when I removed the lace, this is what I saw.
All filled with the most yummi stuff.
Beautiful bling, vintage buttons, teeny tiny vintage
tags, old keys, tiny shoes...
the sweet little round box on the side
with the lady on top, is an old measuring tape



One of Anns famous suitcase
pocket creations.
This is SO beautiful, filled with lace and trim.
It has the most wonderful pale blue color
underneath the lace.
Inside is tucket wonderful emphemera.
and if this wasn´t enough

Ann also gifted me with one of her
beautiful amazing cones.
Another little bootlebrush tree inside together
with a wonderful father christmas, a little
baby shoe, silver tinsel, lots of lace and
a sweet little lamb too.

I have been in love with Anns suitcase pockets
and her cones ever since I saw them on flickr
a long time ago
I feel so fortunate
to owe one of each now.

I LOVE everything Ann
Thank you SO much for creating
these amazing beauties for me. 

Make sure to pop over and visit Ann at
and see her wonderful creations.
I can´t wait for her to list them in
her new Etsy Shop.

Wishing you all a beautiful day

I´ve been A Good Girl

Just a quick post to show you
how the new year have started over at my place.

On this the first day in the new year
which also happens to be my birthday
we have had the most amazing beautiful weather
*of course*

Hubby and I went for a walk at our favorite beach
and this is how it looks like right now.
With lots of snow and lots of sun

so you see....
I have been a very good girl :-)

Since this is going to be my birthday month
and because I have some very exciting news to share
(more about this soon)
and because I´m heading for 500 followers
I thought it would be appropriate with a giveaway soon.
Wouldn´t that be fun...

I have soo many plans for this new Year.
How about you...

so - of to start my list
and to work on the giveaway.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Tina ♥♥♥
