Birthday Flowers |


Last week was birthday week and that means: Lots of flowers in the house!


Birthday Flowers |


I got spoilt this year with many many presents. Two of my favourites are the two things that make the world a better place: Earrings...

made (yes: crocheted metal wire!) by my talented sister ( who had the best teachers in my aunt and cousin from Galerie Feinschmiede ). One of a kind, not for sale, only mine. mineminemine!

... and: Icecream! 


We bought delicious la newyorkina paletas during our walk on the High Line in New York where they also sold this book by Fany Gerson and I screamed: "I need this book because next summer I will make popsicles from fresh fruit and sell them in a little cart on the street!" My husband said: "Yes, sure." and managed to buy the book for me right there without me noticing it.

    Oh Happy Birthday Lena! What a talented sister - I LOVE those ear rings and I've never seen some like them, very unique and that's one lovely and sneaky husband. You should do that cart with your children one day just for fun. M x

    Liebe Eva, vielen Dank!

    Thank you, Mel! The earrings have become my favourites already. And if my popsicle business doesn't work out, I will maybe just have a popsicle party ;)

    Your birthday party sounds just perfect! Congrats even though I'm a bit late! Those earrings are lovely and I like to be your customer next summer if you do some dairy free popsicles ;)
