23.6.15













so in the end i was about to loose my mind
but it´s here - the new collection
not even W´s KIDNEY STONE could stop us
(well, i was forced to work on the "hard" stuff too while he was out for a bit,
but that´s a good thing, since now this is my favorite kind)
.
now there are not only
a lot of BARRETTES
even one of a kind TWO TONE BARRETTES
and on top of that HAIR THINGS
VARIOUS EAR STUDS - so many choices
three of W´s absolute masterpieces: HEAVY SILVER BRACELETS
and TINY FOOT RINGS (excellent for stacking)
no, there´s also a moving (!!!) lookbook
thanks to the E in WSAKE who has two careers, one being an ARTIST 
and the other one a contemporary dancer
there is nothing ethereal about her, she´s force and strength and i love that
so please give this post a bit of time to load and watch her do her thing
.
also i had no idea filming would be so much fun
she just tried things and i told her if i thought something might work
(a big thank you to MICA by the way, who we woke very early on a rainy sunday morning 
to borrow her amazing studio to shoot the whole thing - E is wearing 0941 throughout all the pictures, 
which is also dreamt up right there)
.
thank you to my dear hair things and ear stud tester S
and to W who takes up with a lot of crazy


and since we had so much fun, we threw in some old favorites














12.6.15
















guess what - it´s GIVEAWAY time!
to get a PLANT HANGER for free all you have to do is leave a comment under this post until Sunday 21.6.
or/and comment on THIS PICTURE on instagram and like @annawsake
THE WINNER IS AURORA BENDER - please contact me, since i don´t have an email address
.
on top of that there are five PLANT HANGERS listed in the shop 
that come with a free set of three tiny ceramic heart pendants made by PAULA VALENTIM
be quick!
.
Paula also just posted a lovely recipe for OLIVE OIL AND ORANGE BISCUITS
mine turned out to be a bit on the bitter side
i probably used to much orange zest
also we simply can´t get enough of FRÄULEIN TEXT´s GRANOLA - that crunching buckwheat!!!
(i tend to make it with ghee, dried blue berries and cardamom - excellent when you run out of cinnamon)
and those TURMERIC CASHEWS - wow!
it was my first time using cayenne, so they turned out super hot
and can now be used as a spice themselves
and since i had a bottle of almost crystallised rice sirup hidden in on of my vast drawers
i gave this ELDERFLOWER CORDIAL a shot
didn´t look as poetic as in those pictures, more like when you pour a bottle of beer and all that comes out is foam
but now it works (and looks like beer completely without foam)
.
it looks like i´m completely food driven these days
it´s probably Nigel Slater´s fault
i´m reading too much in his books and now i´m wondering
when i´m going to start dreaming of lamb with apricots and all that tarragon he seams to consume
since foxgloves have planted themselves in the sage patch
(if you´re reading your Agatha Christie closely you know how dangerous that can be)
i don´t dare to try what looks to me like tarragon in my garden
maybe it´s some highly poisonous lookalike too
.
spent all of my "business money" on getting the blanks for the new collection cut
they just arrived and now SO MUCH work is about to begin
i´m already sore after half a day
so i swear a lot and hide out somewhere eating cookies or nuts
.
all versions of the BLUE BELL NECKLACES and the PUZZLE RINGS are now back in stock
.
also i have to get used to the fact that my hair will probably never look neat
and i should probably embrace the style of an unruly toddler
adorned with some of the BARRETTES and HAIR THINGS we´re WORKING ON OF COURSE!
.
and since i´m working on a ton of gifs to show off our new collection
i thought just tune you in with a tiny one including a smelly chives flower
.
do i need those SHORTS?
who wants to visit SQIRL with me?
and who does not love this WOMAN?



















6.5.15














last year i was asked to do a print for the fashion label 0941
i had already done a few BEFORE
so i was super happy to get to create another one for the S/S2015 collection
available HERE
.
when i´m designing such things often i have no idea what will come out of it in the end
so here i show you some on-the-way versions
that did not end up printed on silk like the final print
.
a few weeks ago i played around with the clothes behind my house
enjoying a a bit of sunshine
and looking very much not like a model
.
pictures of the real model are by ANDREAS FUCHS
oh, how i love the contrast between us two
