Collage Swap with Suzy

Ever since I started my blogging journey
I've been a huge admirer of 
Suzy of

As you can imagine I was
"over the moon"
when Suzy suggested we have a swap of
two collage pages.
These are the beautiful pages that
Suzy sent me.

my heart was skipping beats
as I carefully opened her parcel....

I think she knows how much I love PARIS!!

The beautiful detail of an artist at work, 
like this delicate stamp on the cream silk

Mon Cher Ami

Layering of fabrics, laces, ribbons - 
everything I love

and pretty trims.....

and more....

flowers, a message and a diamond too!!

and just look at what Suzy sent me,
some precious pieces of fabric
from her wonderful stash -
I can't wait to have a play!

and such a sweet hand made card

Thank you Suzy
I feel very spoilt to have two
beautiful collages made by you.

I really enjoyed making
my two pages for you too!

Please visit Suzy's blog to see
her exquisite collages and books.

Thank you dear friends
for visiting my blog,
especially those of you who
leave such lovely comments!

to my new followers
thank you for joining my blog
make it all worthwhile!

Take care and
be kind to one another
hugs and love

  1. Hello dear Shane,
    I have just come from Suzy's blog where I saw the pages she sent you (So Gorgeous!) and the two you sent her.Equally gorgeous!
    I wish I could do work like that but alas, no talent.
    Have a lovely weekend dear friend! xx

  2. Hello Shane:
    How perfectly wonderful to be so in tune with a fellow blogger that you both know exactly the taste of the other. The collages are indeed enchanting and have clearly been made with careful thought and a huge amount of talent. It is lovely that you two have 'found' each other in the labyrinth that is the Blogosphere and can give each other such pleasure with these beautiful gifts.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing your treasures from Suzy! I swoon over all those layers upon layers of laces and trims. Especially since I keep gravitating to them in malls and antique shops! My stash is huge but yet I keep them tucked away. Maybe if I do a little piece that will break the spell of "saving them"! Oh, the things we learn at our mother's knees... lol! I have become your latest follower and would love to have you drop on by my blog for a look-see. i always love making new friends, don't you? I would be tickled pink if you follow, too!!

  4. beautiful Shane !!...lovely

  5. Dearest Shane,

    THAT is you: roses, lace and brocante with a French touch.

    Hugs to you,
