Doily rug graphite grey

No words today.

Addendum: Thank you, Ariane,
rose of blogworld,
for ordering this doily rug :)


Mushrooms & sun

After a lot of rain suddenly very hot again.
There is something very fascinating about mushrooms, don't you think?
Nach viel Regen plötzlich wieder sehr heiß.
Pilze haben etwas sehr Faszinierendes, denkt ihr nicht auch?


Doily rug Mars

Still working like crazy, still one month until our holiday starts.
This new doily rug makes me think of the planet Mars,
I don't quite know why.
Wish you all a recreative weekend!
Arbeite noch immer wie verrückt, noch einen ganzen Monat bis zu unserem Urlaub.
Der neue Doily rug erinnert mich irgendwie an den Planeten Mars,
weiß nicht recht warum.
Wünsche euch allen ein entspanntes Wochenende!



After dentist,
a little walk
to distract myself a bit.
Nach dem Zahnarzt
ein kleiner Spaziergang,
um mich etwas abzulenken.


Postcards & buttons

Printing postcards with my marine stamps
& making new buttons.
Happy weekend!
Postkarten mit meinen Marine Stempeln bedrucken
& neue Buttons herstellen.
Schönes Wochenende!


handmade summer gift swap

Some time ago Mina organized a gift swap and my package arrived yesterday! It was a secret from whom we will get our handmade grifts, so it was double surprise. My package came from BarbaraShe made this lovely necklace for me and 2 hair-bands, all in blue tones. It all fits perfectly - thank you so much, Barbara! I sent my package away 20 days ago and it seems it still hasn't arrived. Hopefully it didn't get lost!


Red-Orange doily rug

Another doily rug is finished and already on the way to it's new owner.
It will get a place in a camper with mostly red and orange interior.
On the last picture I was able to catch an alien. :)
Ein weiterer Doily rug ist fertig und auch schon auf dem Weg zu seiner neuen Besitzerin.
Er bekommt seinen Platz in einem Camper mit hauptsächlich roter und oranger Einrichtung.
Auf dem letzten Bild konnte ich einen Alien einfangen. :)


Sunflowers versus sun

The only thing that shined today
were the sunflowers.
Nevertheless a beneficial walk.
Das einzige, das heute schien
waren die Sonnenblumen.
Nichtsdestotrotz ein erholsamer Spaziergang.

Happy mail

It's time to show you all the great letters and packages I got lately. Lily sent me this pretty Atlantic puffin card from her trip to Jersey. The envelope has the prettiest stamps! Thank you so much! I need to take some time for taking up writing letters again. At the moment there is so much to think and do, so please be patient with me.
This lovely package came from Australia. Dear Katyha spoiled me with lot's of lovely gifts. On her blog I saw her cute handmade chicken pot holder and she was so kind to send it to me! Isn't it adorable!? It will get a special place, but I don't know if I ever use it, because it is far too special.
Thank you!
Another lovely letter from Lisa. This time it was especially colorful. I love it! Thank you, I appreciate our "letter friendship" very much and am always looking forward to reply to your words!
Remember when I won Olga's give-away that unfortunately got damaged on the mailing route? She was so sweet to send it again to me and not only that, she also sent me an extra tiny glass bottle to hang on the wall. Do you know her nature letter project? You can send her nature treasures and she makes something beautiful out of it. I sent her tiny shells that I collected in my Portugal holiday in 2008 and pieces of tiles that had been sandpapered by the sea in Brac. When I got these findings back I was thrilled! She made a necklace with the tiny shells and 2 awesome rings with the tiles. They are so pretty and it is such a great idea of her! I love the whole project, it is such a great idea! I'm very impressed by the creations she makes out of nature findings! Thank you, Olga!
Last, but not least, I am the lucky winner of Evdokia's give-away! It is a handmade brooch called Oliver :) I love brooches very much. When I don't wear them, I hang them on my curtain in my working room where they look down to me and make my space happier :) If you also want a sweet cat brooch, have a look at her wonderful Etsy shop!


Green for the eyes

I'm very busy at the moment, hardly time for blogging.
To relief my eyes from computer work I make evening walks in the forest.
When I saw these leaves {picture 1 + 5} yesterday,
I immediately thought it would be nice to carve a stamp from that shape.
Luckily the weather has cooled down a bit.
Viel zu tun im Moment, kaum Zeit zum Bloggen.
Um meine Augen von der Bildschirmarbeit zu entlasten
mache ich Abends Waldspaziergänge.
Als ich gestern diese Blätter {Foto 1 + 5} sah,
dachte ich sofort, es wäre nett einen Stempel mit dieser Form zu schnitzen.
Das Wetter ist nun etwas kühler zum Glück.



DaWanda invited me for an interview.
You can have a look at it here if you like.
It is only in German though.

The perfect moment to thank everyone
who has purchased one of my handmade creations
or left kind & encouraging words!
Thank you for your support!
