On the 24. December on the way to my hometown, we made a slight detour to visit castle ruin Dürnstein. It was quite cold and windy, but the winter sun turned everything into pure gold.
Hope you also had a nice time with friends and family over the holidays!


Merry Christmas!

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas!
Thank you all for your support!
See you soon again!


Bags of Love

At the end of November I took part a design competition of Bags of Love and did not tell anybody about it. It was about making a design for a Christmas cushion. I sent in my design and forgot all about it until I got an email from Bags of Love that I made the first place! I nearly couldn't believe it! Yesterday my price arrived - a cushion with my design and a 200 pound gift voucher! I was really positively surprised by the good quality of the cushion! Super nice, strong and at the same time soft and cozy fabric and the colors came out so bright! This was a really great Christmas surprise and it is nice to know that they liked my design that much :)

Have a nice evening!


The tree, the tree ...

Freshly decorated ;)


Venerate the Christmas tree!

Celebrating our Christmas tree in my own way last night.
These odd pictures came out ;)


blue skies

What a day! Super sunny, windy and quite warm!
Blue skies like on a summer day and this five days before Christmas.
Happy Friday!



Christmas baking for my family.
I made 5 sorts of cookies so far.


Fog walk

Yesterday was an amazing atmosphere in the forest.
All the naked trees wrapped in thick misty clouds - stunning!
Have a good start into the week!

Have a nice third Advent Sunday!



This year I'm having a hard time getting into Christmas mood, so I made myself a good cup of tea and flicked through some pretty Christmas DIY and baking books and magazines. Soon I want to bake some cookies also. This could also help to create some festive spirit. A little bit of snow would be nice, too! I can not remember that it was ever like that in December. Let's be patient and see how it develops. Wishing you a cozy Saturday evening!
