As promised here's a gift for you my darling followers as a small token of my gratitude....
I've tried to make a Danish theme..
Here you go!
A repro postcard with a lovely pin up made by Christel -an amazing Danish illustrator. She's very famous for her pin ups but she also made paper dolls and many book illustrations. This lady is from a pin up calendar she made in 1945, Miss August rolling in the hay..
Lovely repro paper doll, it's made by the Danish illustrator Gerda Vinding in the 1940's. I did a post on her. Sadly this was the only sheet I could find right now... I wanted to find and give the bridal sheet she won 2nd place for in an international paperdoll contest but it was nowhere to be found... See more of her wonderful designs here
Mermaid brooch with pearl (all faux, off course..) Because we (by we I mean Denmark..) are famous for the H.C. Andersen fairytale "The Little Mermaid" and there is also a very famous statue of her on Langelinie here in Copenhagen.. Well, technically she's in China right now but she'll come back to us soon, we lend her to China for their World Fair in Shanghai.. 'cause we don't mind lending out stuff and sharing.. but our tourists are understandably a bit disappointed when they see the empty spot...
Red and white swan brooches.. Plastic and rhinestone, Danish Design made in Denmark;) (from the 80's but a bit deco in their style...) The white swan is our national bird.. and the red swan and white swan together symbolises the two colors in our flag, Dannebrog.
Necklace with tiny white lovebird in a gilded cage made by me:) -a Danish person living in Denmark..
So all you have to do is comment to let me know that you are in the competition! Twit or blog for extra chances.... I will be drawing a random winner this time (it was too difficult to choose one last time....)
I will be drawing the winner when I get back from my vacation (have I told you I'm going on a looong awaited holiday?;) I'll be back on Sep. 29th so I will be drawing a winner on Oct.1st. That should give you plenty of time to enter.... and me a couple of days to get over my jet-lag...
I wish a were a rich girl so I could send each and everyone of you a gift;)
Good luck, everybody!
