Fall and Finds

Fall have certainly arrived over here.
Not Fall as in blue skies and bright sunny
but Fall as in rain, storm and fog.

Last weekend was beautiful though
and we decided to go out for a trip
and enjoy the wonderful weather

This is Fredensborg Castle
One of the Royal familys residenses.
It´s so beautiful with the copper roof.

It´s only about 20 minutes drive from where I live
and we enjoy going there occasionally

there´s free entrance to the park behind the castle.
So beautiful and relaxing.

On the way back we stumbled upon
a little sign for a flea market.
Well hided in an industrial area
so ofcourse we had to peek inside. 

I managed to find a few scores for almost nothing.
A well worn silver tray
an old grater and a torn old german dictionary
and this....

a beautiful green french bottle

at least I think it´s a real french bottle
looking at the cork.
I think it´s beautiful anyway

Today was the lokal football clubs anual garagesale
Or I thought it was, only to find out that the club only served
coffee and cake, and had hired out the hall to different
dealers to set up booths.

I found a few goodies today too

two vintage white table clothes
a bag filled with vintage wooden spools

a pair of vintage leather gloves
and a bunch of doilies

and some very cool french chocolate molds
all ready to alter.

It´s very foggy here today
but fortunately not cold.
I´m off for a walk - doctors order :o)

How is the fall weather at your place?

Wishing you all a beautiful day

The Stitching Project

Remember the Stitching project
I made some time ago?

I had a christmas project in mind

and here´s what it turned put to be

my humble stitched words
together with layers of vintage lace

and some vintage white buttons

it all ended up as pretty Christmas Stockings

Wouldn´t they be perfect on a mantle, or a door for christmas
with a few branches inside or maybe a little gift.

Linking up with
White Wednesday over at

I also want to say a big Thank You to all
my new followers - I´m so happy to see you here.
I see I´m heading fast towards a
700 followers giveaway

Wishing you all a wonderful day

Hello Sweet Friends

and thank you so much for all
your get well wishes.
I´m sorry I haven´t been able to reply to you all
individually this time - hope that is okay.
I´ve started the threatment at the Physio
and I have to say it´s a tough one - urgghh
Apparently there´s a lot of myalgia
so this is going to take a long time, but I´m confident
it´s be good in the end.

Enough of that

I have been able to slowly start working in the studio again

and since I had to skip some of my plans on my to-do list
I went straight ahead towards Christmas

and have been making sweet little hearts

These are made from one of the vintage table cloths
I have found at the Flea this summer.

with a little piece of tea dyed muslin stamped
 with a whreath stamp and some silver glitter
on the front, I though they would make a sweet
little decoration for Christmas

A few have been listed in the shop

Never too early for Christmas right....
It´ll be here before we know ;o)


I´m currently working on bears for the

This is going to be a fantastic online show.
I can´t show you any of the bears yet, but I promise
they´ll be something very speciel.
Make sure to pop over and get the details.
I´ll post more about this later.

Thank you so much for visiting today
and wishing you all a wonderful day

A Health Warning and Work in Progress

So Fall have arrived over here.
With cooler temperatures and the most
beautiful view to the forrest with all the different colors.

and then I went down with a massive headache.

This one is a tough one
not the old migraene but something different
so I had to make a doctors apointment
and the answer was: stress related and a blood pressure
way out of control - urghh - and so the cure is
more medicine, physiotherapy and exercise.

I haven´t been able to keep up with things
and to work much in the studio.
It´s better today though and I wanted to show you
some work in progress

I´m working on a private swap

for a wonderful and talented blogging friend

here´s a few sneak peeks

of what will be send of end of October

Can´t show you more at this time
as that would ruin the surprice
for my sweet friend L.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
and make sure to enjoy life
and take care of yourself.

Todays Finds

Hello my sweet friends

A little update on this beautiful sunday.
We´re having a wonderful indian summer
and yesterday was the varmest day ever on an October 1th
Sunny and about 77 degress

I haven´t been able to spend much time in
the studio since our vacation -even grown up
kids needs a lending hand from time to time.
The 'to-do' list is growing and I´m a wee bit behind.

The Flea market season is almost over
and today was my last change to hit one.
Most of the booths were with clothes and shoes
today, but I did find a few with some cool old stuff
and here´s todays finds

pretty creamy velvet ribbon
one with a wonderful edge

a few vintage handlerchiefs
and some lace and crochet pieces

a wonderful vintage photoalbum.
These are really rare over here, so lucky me.

Filled with wonderful old photos too.
Great score I think

a pair of pretty little black girls shoes.
Thought they would be perfect for display
or maybe with a little bear inside.

Thanks for popping in today
and wishing you all a wonderful day.
