My birthday gifts

Today I want to present my birthday presents that I got from dear blog friends.
First, a beautiful ATC Booklet and a terrific Steampunk card from dear Manuela (http://vintagesavonette.blogspot.de/). Isn`t that wonderful? Thank you, dear Manu! The two creations are so beautiful.

Then I got a very magical card and this memory frame from my dear blog friend Lynne (http://lynnesbowsandbelles.wordpress.com/). Both pieces of art are exquisitely crafted. Thank you, dear Lynne! You've given me a great pleasure!

The third gift is from my dear blog friend Dorthe (http://denlillelade.blogspot.de/). A sweet bird nested on top of a homemade paper-pot, decorated with papers, fabrics, handmade flower and a little rusted wire! And a very fantastic card and many, many embellishments and accessories. Thank you, my dear Dorthe. You have made me happy.

The fourth gift is from my blog friend Alexandra (http://xelasart.blogspot.de/). A beautiful notebook, notecards, a most delightful fabric card, vintage buttons and a large bag with lace ribbon. Thank you, dear Alexandra. You have made my day :-)

Steampunk Matchboxes Hairdresser Table

In August 2013, I saw quite a fantastic tutorial on Candy's Blog. A Steampunk matchboxes hairdresser table! Since August this idea buzzes around in my head. Now I've done it! While it's not quite the same as Candy`s work, because I had to improvise with some materials but with the result I am quite happy :-)
Im August 2013 sah ich eine ganz fantastisches Tutorial auf Candy´s Blog. Ein Steampunk Streichholzschachteln Friseur Tisch! Seit August schwirrt mir diese tolle Idee im Kopf herum. Nun habe ich es gewerkelt! Es ist zwar nicht ganz identisch mit Candy`s Werk, weil ich bei einigen Materialien improvisieren musste aber mit dem Ergebnis bin ich ganz zufrieden:-)
