Silba VII

I'm always fascinated of abandoned buildings. Whenever I see one, I feel the urge to explore it.
On Silba we found this big one, full of graffiti and with a wonderful view onto the sea.
I would not recommend others to do the same, because it can be quite dangerous. Luckily I always have an expert with me. As my bf is pulling off such buildings in his job, he knows much about the stability of walls and ceilings in different stages.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!

August snail mail

I did not forget, I'm only a little late with August snail mail, but here it is!

I got those sweet treats from Evdokia for sending her a bulb of my oxalis :)
Thank you! Hope your oxalis will grow as much as mine!
Lots of awesome gifts from Lily!
I love the handprinted bird card, the pretty playing cards designed from an artist and she even sent me a Japanese style sewing book! And the little animal figure, it starts to become a collection.
Thank you so much!
A long-awaited letter from dear Jessica. She was in India as you may easily perceive.
I hope I find some calm time soon to reply!
This pretty package is from Katyha. She sent me flower seeds for our garden and a very pretty teatowel  with typical Australian plants on it. Really lovely! Thank you!
My friend Larissa spoiled me with homemade ghee, fruits and many magazines for my vacation.
A big ❤ to you!
 Another lovely letter from Amalia from Greece!
 I especially like how Sara designs her letters. Always much love to the detail and this pretty vintage look! And they have so pretty stamps at the moment in Portugal! Look at those birds!
 I was very happy to hear news from Barbara! I miss her in blog world! She sent me pretty cards, tea and seeds from her own garden.
Last but not least: Here are all the postcards I got in August.
The first three are from Lily and the other two are from Sandra!
Thank you, Ladies!
Thank you all for that great snail mail month!!!

Silba VI

I was amazed by all those pretty old trees on Silba
and big hidden rocks away from the beach.

Short before our vacation I made those flower illustrations.
Bell flowers, sunflower and poppy.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Silba V

 Between the rainfall I made long walks on the beach
and reconciled with the winds.

Plums, plums, plums...

Before I am showing you further vacation pictures, here is a plum pattern, I made back in July. Finally I could use it for my homemade jam and yesterday I made plum galettes for the first time.
The recipe is from this pretty site! {it is in German though}
Oh, and the crochet piece I bought from an old lady on Silba :)
