Feeling very overwhelmed lately
and unable to communicate properly 
with others.
It feels like I can not take comfort in words,
only in silence and self-forgetfulness.



In June it is all about flowers.



Jay illustration & pattern.


*a forest tale | part 2

Years ago I found a picture of flowers in the internet that I like so much. I kept looking at it over and over and only recently I saw this kind of flower in nature the first time in my life. What a delicate, dreamy plant! It is called soldanella alpina (last picture).

Visited this little abandoned house again.
I was glad to see that it was not taken down yet!
It evokes all kind of fantasies in me. A home of a poet or a herbalist. I always think about how I would restore a certain building and which furniture would fit best. It's a nice mind game.
I would love to visit it in winter season someday when all is covered in snow!


*Garden moments in May

{Music: I don't know my name – Grace VanderWaal}

May went by so fast. I captured some moments in garden and home during the month of May. Finally the berry season has started. Nothing better than having fresh fruits from the garden every morning!
Enjoy the summery weather!


*at the lake

What a calm moment at the lake in the evening sun.


*May in the mountains

{Music: Skammdegi – Pascal Pinon}

A little movie from our last mountain trip. We had such a lovely time in the woods – I found wild growing aquilegias and sempervivum and all was full of butterflies!


*dandelion heaven

Welcome to dandelion heaven!


*when the trees were still in full bloom

When the trees are in full bloom and the meadows more yellow than green, I love to just sit with my little old friend on a blanket in the garden to make garlands out of dandelions and daisies. Soaking up the first warm sun is magical. As you can see, not only for me :)


*april forest walk

{Music: Seguir – Gustavo Santaolalla}


*forest fairy

Not long ago we had a few wonderful days in the woods.
They inspired me to make this forest fairy illustration and pattern.


*from days in the woods

I hardly ever wear jewelry,
it makes me feel uncomfortable.
But I have very few pendants that I really cherish
and this moonstone pendant is one of them.


*the wind was blowing gently

The wind was blowing gently...



This weeks spoonflower design challenge was all about "cycling".
This is my contribution.
Happy Friday!



Abandoned places, busy beavers
and awakening forests.
