Überraschungen / Surprises


This weekend seems to be without drawing challenge. 
But you are on my mind...
For example, please have a look at these nectarine...
she reminds me on Patrice's work at 'wings' here, 'dream' here and 'letters of the alphabet' there.


And then I have to show you
some surprising boxes I've got at my birthday from my
dearest friends Azalee and Fräulein Miezi...





Beautiful cups with silhouette ... in rose with gold and black.
And an old cigar box with even humorous inhold:






dessous de tasse, a fur brooch - and potholder



and saucy lingerie from the last fin de siècle!


And from Tatjana of Bambi kann beissen these pretty brooch.



Love it all... I'd like to have birthday every day...!

  1. They are absolutely gorgeous birthday presents. From what I can tell, they are all very 'you'!

    The nectarine looks a bit like a baby's bottom, to me.

    Really, Ariane, your presents are beautiful. Thanks for sharing them!

  2. Dear Carmel,
    well, I even think they are all very 'me'. Thank you for recognize ;-)
    Yes, a baby's bottom... wasn't it cute? at the time when your and my kids are babies? - and thank God they are growing up!

    All the best for you and your family,
    xo Ariane.

  5. Sometimes, dear Nadine,
    no, often I need a good dictionary to translate your words. So many words that I didn't know since I read them from you... 'bummer' is one of them.
    And, yes I'm really happy to have friends they know me well...

    Dear Patrice,
    its always a pleasure to think at you... even through a nectarine-bottom.

    From Elisabeth's weekly drawing challenge I've learned many new ways to look at things... thank YOU and the other wonderful artists!

    Respectfully,
    Ariane.

  9. Dear Rachel,
    oh, sweet Greta...!
    Because of the drawing challenge I stay in contact with Nadine. The idea is, to have a break as Elisabeth herself is doing. Maybe til the first of August? or maybe the next two weeks?
    I 'll go on vacation next saturday just for a week.
    So, everything is possible.
    Love,
    Ariane.
