In the morning
Winter sky
Shut the door
layers over layers
snowy fence
a bit sun

Hibernation food

I am back from my mind-trip to Sweden.
Thanks for your nice comments and your thoughts on this : )
The reality looks a bit different here: snow snow snow the whole weekend...
I went out for a walk and watched ducks flying.
Enjoyed the tiny bit of sun we got..outside and inside..
Had tea with a friend and ate a great blueberry pastry.
Bought some hibernation food at the farmers market: walnuts hmm
Sewed a birthday gift for a friend which I will show later in the week. As it is a little surprise.

Got this beautiful song send.

In my mind I am in Sweden I

In my mind I am in Sweden tonight
Don't get me wrong. I love Winter, the snow, the cold...I really do. But I somehow realize that I tend to look at pictures from the warmer times of the year when it is colder outside.

I stumbled over this image a good friend of mine took while we were traveling through Sweden a few years ago.

When I look at it I remember what a great holiday it was, what a beautiful country it much I loved it there, how much fun we had, wild camping at the beautiful lakes, the morning swims, the red houses everywhere like in a fairy tale, the friendly people, the little islands around the coast...
I think of it very often and I thought I could post an image of this great holiday....just when it pops up in my head and I wish to sit at a lake in summer

Me and my camera look forward to having a date with Mr. Winter and some daylight outside this weekend.
But right now...I am in Sweden.

: )

little white heart bowl
Wool for a Spring scarf
A few images from my nice but a bit cold weekend.

I fixed my boat-earrings which were lying in a bowl and not being used way too long.
Went to the flea market even that it was -11° outside, I didn't know if it might take place, but there were a few people selling lovely things, like this little bowl with hearts and cake plates...
I catched up with friends, saw "where the wild things are" and liked it a lot, started my new knitting project a scarf for
Spring - I haven't decided yet for which Spring though : ) and loved having a simple but great lunch with bread, cheese and a boiled egg : )

Oh, you should check out the shop of this lovely lady she makes such pretty necklaces.

Have a great week...I start it with listening to his new music

A garland & some music on a Friday night

Note in my calendar
getting ready
the pieces of the garland
the sewing bit

Friday. Weekend. Already. This week really seemed like flying was so busy and it is good that the weekend starts now.
I made this little drawing in my calendar the other day to remind me to make a little garland for the space where those little bags where hanging for a while. I always wanted to sew one and now as I have collected a few nice fabrics I finally found the time to sit down and make the magic noises with my sewing maching...tzzztzzstzzs...

I was sitting in the train from Berlin to Hamburg today watching the white landscape flying by outside and listening to this song.. Just the trees and houses popping up every now and than showed that we were not driving through a snow desert... I love Grizzy Bear...and I was still listening to their album while sewing tonight...

Anyways, I hope you all have a great Friday night...

Take care

Sometimes there are small things which really fascinate me.
Like this pot with a hyacinth I got a few weeks ago. In the first days I thought there will never come anything out at all as it was not showing any little bud or any move. I was really caring and gave it enough water and put a little string around the leaves that they can't fall over when they get bigger...And finally after a while it started growing and growing. I was sitting in front of it sometimes and hoped I could maybe once see how a bud opens and shows it nice blue-lilac-ish blossom..
Speaking of growing, I stumpled over this cute movie trailer today and thought I should share it. A documentary about the first year of four babies from all around the world. Sufjan Stevens in the background and really beautiful scenes in the trailer are pretty convincing..
Don't you think?

...I will see such blue skies again...
I just stumpled over a few pictures I took with my Diana+ when I was in Australia some time ago...
I took them while I was a few days in Adelaide and the Barossa Valley...I am in love
with giraffes ever since..such lovely, delicate and beautiful animals... the way they move, turn around or look at you..I was amazed and I remember standing there at the zoo and watching them and thinking this...
Oh and you can even find me in one of the pictures : )

The new spot


I was wondering today: when was the last time I have actually seen the sun.
It has been a while...and I miss it and its shadows and warmness. In the meanwhile I arrange myself with the grey sky...

I was moving around in the flat a bit lately and put the table in front of a window.
I love sitting there...looking outside, thinking, reading, or writing things down...
The other day in the morning after it was snowing the whole night I switched off the lights and enjoyed the brightness, snow brings with it..the room was glowing a tiny bit in a blue-ish was so quiet too and my table was so inviting to sit there and look outside...and take this picture...

Happy weekend

little sewing project III

Sewing project III
Sewing project III
Sewing project III

A few weeks ago I did some more little sewing projects. A tote bag for a friends birthday and a few key rings for Christmas...It's great to make little presents by myself and see how people like it...

I also have been on a little 'field trip' to my local fabric supplier "Frau Tulpe" I got a nice red cord fabric and this lovely one. I hope I find the time on the weekend to sew a nice cushion for my desk chair.

Warm Wrists

Saturdays Breakfast, blueberries, walnuts, yoghurt and honey
OH..what a nice packaging
Beautiful Wrist Worms
Wrist Worms

After months of looking at the lovely wrist worms from the talented Sandra, I couldn't resist any longer and gave myself a little treat and got a pair.

I was so excited when I opened my mailbox after breakfast this morning and found a little package in there, my address beautifully handwritten on it.
They are so soft and you can really tell -made with love.
Tack Sandra, they are beautiful. It will be hard to take them off later on when I go to bed.

Happy weekend.

and maybe especially when it is -8° degrees outside I think of Summer...
The first time at the Baltic Sea of the year in early Summer.
A blue sky in Copenhagen.
The many visits at the farmers markets and our food table before we pack everything away.
Two pair of feet getting ready for an amazing Summer weekend in Berlin.
Lazy Saturday mornings...not getting stressed about the warm weather outside enjoying the time...
My favourite Summer dress.
The last summer weekend at the Baltic Sea.

The best Summer I ever had.

I still like you Winter it was just a little journey in my head..
