Susies page for Cobi

Last night I dreamed of chickens
Last night I dreamed of chickens,
there were chickens everywhere,
they were standing on my stomach,
they were nesting in my hair,
they were pecking at my pillow,
they were hopping on my head,
they were ruffling up their feathers
as they raced about my bed.

They were on the chairs and tables,
they were on the chandeliers,
they were roosting in the corner
they were clucking in my ears,
there were chickens, chickens, chickens
for as far as I could see ...
when I woke today, I noticed
there were eggs on top of me.

This is the delightful page I received from Helen in South Africa. I love theme is "travelling", so here I am burning down the highway in my hot machine, with the wind whipping my hair and my gorgeous travel bag secured on top.
How I'd love to do that.......except I don't have a convertible nor do I have long hair.......but when I close my eyes, there I am going for it !!!!
I have a pair of red leather gloves which I wear every chance I get, so they are very appropriate and I love the dachshund on the looks like a bed to me, so I could pop up there and have a nap when I get tired of all the admiring looks I get !!!
Helen said the car is made from TAP, I've never had any success with that product, so I admire anyone who has and I do keep a journal of our travels, so the fabric fits in with that too.
The photos are both the front & back.......thanks Helen.....

vintage peacock for Shelly

Shelly asked for a birdpage in vintage style. I dumped peacock, lace edging and white cotton into tea for a tinted effect. The peacock is embellished with wax pearls and the blue lace has ivory colored beads that I received through a swap. Being Dutch, I'm not really familiair with vintage. I was glad this one turned out OK

Funky Bird

 Last night I received this gorgeous page by Frances. She didn't have to make up a funky bird, because the Australian emu qualities completely for this title.
I love the emu print and photo's and also the handmade silkpaper is gorgeous.
Thank you Francis, I love everything you've made and sent. A lovely addition to my book.

These are pages I received this week from Maya and Cobi.......beautifully done....thanks girls.

Maya's page is beautiful silk fabrics with lots of stitching and photos attached. It's beautiful rich shades of blue and blue/green exactly as you'd expect the ocean to be. I'm not a sailor nor a boatie but I do love looking at the ocean and water in general......there's something very calming about being near the sea.

Cobi's page is all about the stunning tulip fields of the Netherlands. I've never been there but the colours and photos I've seen in travel magazines make me wish I was able to see them in person. Lots of lovely hand stitching and again, beautifully rich colours.
