actually i´m feeling rather sick after taking these pictures
so much sweetness and i´m definitely over "Krapfen" by now
(which simply means i overate - a lot)
dungarees however are excellent to "store" all those candy things you´ve eaten
highly recommended!
also i´m quite glad to have found this awesome vintage pudding dish last week
in case you´re not in the mood for food extravaganza and intricate home made treats
do the very un-food-blogging thing and just juice some tangerines 
(in case you don´t like the white stuff like me)
and make yourself a huge batch of strawberry pudding
then have a happy valentine´s day
and try not to throw up after eating and drinking it all!
given the festivities i´m planing on getting myself a tiny hot pink ruby
an doing some weird rose gold stuff to it
the kind that makes W go "COME ON!"
since he still has to do all the gold soldering
because i don´t have the "feeling" for it yet and turn everything into nuggets again...
dealing with a load of amounting chronic pains for over five years now
and no one can tell me so far where some of it is coming from
seems like nothing though when reading what all the others are struggling with
(and compared to what "the world" is dealing with of course)
but i still think pretty blogs and instagrams can be an oasis for the mind
as long as we know we´re all human ans show it sometimes
so enjoy all the pink and sweet out there!


get a very sweet deal on some of our rings over at MONOQI
sale continues until Saturday and numbers are limited


the WSAKE woman is all about frizzy art noveau hair
crazy sweater vests with missing buttons
and interesting trouser and boot choices
i love her
the WSAKE man tends to look like an unruly young Tom Cruise
what´s not to like?
i did not like 2014
so here´s to a much better 2015 for everyone
(although it didn´t start so good - #jesuischarlie)
may it be awesome anyway

sometimes i´m thinking about adding a bit of VSCO magic to my pictures
it is tempting but maybe the too easy way to beauty
also: is it okay to mix heavy and banal like this?
"to be honest, i would really like to be a minimalist but i just can´t."
and me


merry christmas to you all!
enjoy some lovely holidays!
thank you so much for stopping by here this year
it was a pleasure to have you:)
HERE´s my shortbread recipe with pistachios, cranberries and white chocolate on the GAARN blog (german only)
and HERE´s a little interview over at ME AND ORLA
all the best!


so here´s my almost too late call to shop small - a lot - especially at christmas
dont get me wrong, i do "shop big", too
but it´s so nice to find things made with a lot of care and love
+ actually knowing who made them
(though we might not know where the resources come from - it´s a long story - but still!)
E sent me some of the miniature paintings SHE AND S made
(their page desperately needs an update!)
and they are just perfect
my pictures and repro skills don´t do them justice
so in case you fall in love with one of them - some are still available
(about 10x7cm, 65€ + shipping)
just let me know and i´ll make a little art deal happen
so in case you´re still looking for some gifts - i´m pretty sure some do still ship in time for the holidays
shown here:
a sweet bavarian heart card from KAROS DRUCKWERK
a circle skirt from BRITTA MANGER - i might not be the most flattering model...
the tiny bees wax candles and wooden ring holders are from a local artisan christmas market
and here are some more things i like:
LE TRAIN FANTOME´s CAT and all her other adorable creatures
fun ceramics from ALEX SICKLING
and you already know i´m a big fan of OTCHIPOTCHI
+ also everything from BASTIS "THE GRID BLANKET" RIKE
the nice selections of STUDIO OINK and ZIERRAT UND GOLD
it does look like i´ve been on a shopping spree - but:
one of the greatest thing about being a "creator" (how should i call myself?!)
is being able to do a lot of swaps with other "creators"
so i´m also currently waiting for wonderful things from
i can´t wait!
some of our pieces are featured in the christmas edition of BRIGITTE
we´re so happy!
some links i bookmarked the last weeks:
i want to look just like THAT one day (soon)
thank you for THIS PICTURE, Tine!
EVENCLEVELAND´s giftguides
an other BLANKET i have my eye on
a yellow TEA POT
found a handicraft book at the fleamarket and when paging through it
we realized our great grandmother must have had the same one
since it didn´t only contain her mitten pattern but also our family´s typic little-people-hat-pattern
worn for decades and generations by now - doesn´t little K look so cute?!
love the HAIR BARRETTE we made for a nice customer
so i guess i´ll be making more some day
