It's been a little more quiet than usual here on the blog lately... I started a new job and like every new job it's very challenging and time consuming, especially in the beginning. I'll continue blogging, but there might be times with a lot less posts and others with more time to dedicate to this place.


Here's a little collection of things that have been surrounding me lately:


these days... |


I can't stop looking at the colour combination of that hortensia and a branch I found in the park last week. 


these days... |


I decided to invest in handmade wristwarmers - it's going to get cold soon. Finally a pair that fits, the usual "one size fits all" wristwarmers are usually to big for me. 


these days... |


A batch of printed instagrams from our Thailand trip arrived. I have a couple of ideas for them. More to follow.


these days... |


And I made some simple pieces of everyday jewelry - after finding a way to organize my jewelry making supplies it's so much easier to get started and make something. It has already become a bit of an addiction.


these days... |


We're having a beautiful, sunny and warm late october these days - I hope most of you, too.



Wishing everyone a good start into the week!

    @Judith: I think I'll need the wristworms very soon. The winter in Berlin is cruel...
    @Doris: Thank you for your kind words, have a nice week, too!

    Liebe Gudy, vielen Dank! Liebe Grüße zurück!

    Liebe Eva, danke Dir! Jetzt ist die Hortensie allein, die roten Blätter sind alle abgefallen. Vielleicht finde ich ja nochmal einen...

    Oh new job! I hope that you're enjoying it? The wrist warmers are so cute and can you believe that I've never heard of that before? Well, it doesn't get so cold where I live. So interested in seeing what you come up with with the jewelry. M x

    Where was I to have missed such a news?!? I hope you truly like your new job since it is taking you away from blogging ;-) Blog less, but keep on doing it because there are people out there who waits from your posts (and even if I'm late to read them most of the times, I'm one of them :-) xxi.
