These are my mum´s hands.
They gave me food, 
bathed me 
and helped me not to stumble
when i learned to walk.
And so many other uncountable things
a loving mother does for her child.
I´m deeply grateful for being attached to her.

Today we made filled gingerbread together.

A ring at my door and few minutes later i opened a package:

 (it was really stuffed in like that :)

It´s a coat made out of old swiss army blankets, i bought it on ebay.
It still smells like the old stuff in armyshops, but i guess that will
go away when it´s worn some time.
I also have to resew it a bit, cause it´s little too big for me...
Some work ahead...

And of course:

Visited a fleamarket last weekend and bought this tiny sign for 50 cents.
I will mount it to the new campervan my boyfriend and i bought.

We also went to a medieval adventmarket, where we drank some
honey-mead, watched the fire-spitting fool and strolled through
the stalls of artisan goods.  
I took this spoon of olivewood home with me.

And we have a new member in the plant family:
Say hello to Smila!
She´s a butterfly-orchid.
Normally i don´t give names to my plants, 
but it just came to my mind when i carried her to the car...

heart-shaped blossoms in my kitchen this morning

Mounted my new kitchentable together
with my personal craftsman.
Romantic single breakfast this morning...

and my newest babyplant finally gets its first tiny roots!

beauty in my kitchen

Nature creates perfect beauties.

That bottom picture shows a product of mine...
i´ve again lost my pencilcase.


Today i finished my snood.
It´s made out of the coziest softest wool i´ve ever worked with
and the colour is warm grey with a touch of beige.
I´m really happy with it and currently wearing it at home,
because i don´t want to wait until i go outside
(which rarely occurs these days due to my studying).
Cant wait for wednesday to be past...

magic knits

New knits for my wrists!
They are made of "magic wool"...
guess its called magic, because the colors are changing
over the whole bundle...
I´m knitting a lot these days, it helps me to relax
and stay grounded.
Important measures since i´m doing a test next wednesday
and have to study a lot...

ho finito!

Finished my cinnamon-bonnet today... i was so curious what it would look like so i couldn´t stop knitting before it was done^^
now i´m a bit sad because i have nothing to knit but i think that will change soon enough...
(as you can see here i´m not very good at taking pictures of the back of my head)

diggin out the needles

New wool for momma!
i love the colour of these handspun and handdyed woolballs so i had to buy them, 
though they were not really cheap, but part of the money goes to Peru 
to support the families of the sheperds there....
more info about that here.
I will hopefully turn them into a nice bonnet...
Oh, and the colour is called Cinnamon^^

leafy, please!

I have been looking for this kind of patterned dish for a while, having it in the back of my mind on every fleamarket visit, but not knowing more about it.... i found out, that its a very famous pattern of swedish designer Stig Lindberg!
He has designed a lot of great patterns and now i´m really into them^^

This tureen was sold at an auction house for 750€!!!!

beautiful "melodi" fabric  (via vintagemint)


I still have some colours for painting ceramics left, so i´ll try to put some lindberg-ish pattern to a dish...

mushrooming part 1

Went mushrooming today with hermann and found these beauties!!
I´m always so struck by the beauty of mushrooms,
they look perfect to me and they are so powerful in their symbiosis to trees...
that may sound crazy but i´m always kind of awestruck of mushrooms... i´ll go ahead and make some good dinner out of them^^

civilisation flashback

I arrived in Vienna two days ago after driving two whole days... cooked coffee during the drive (i do not have a license so i´m always the co-driver) and could not get sleep until 3 am, since i never drink coffee usually....
The weather here is quite cold and cloudy, which i´m really not used to after spending one month in spain and portugal where it practically never rains and you have about 40°C every day...

I would want to present all the impressions from the trip in this blog, so i´ll post the best photos in some posts...

so here we go....

at the train from vienna to styria

old house in France... we took a shower in front of it

the first time in my life at the atlantic coast...near Bordeaux

Lisa cooking lunch in the bus... we always ate delicious veggies^^

Lisa playing with her fire-pois (10sec exposure)

During the trip i had a lot of time to make up my mind about some things and so i came back home with a lot of goals and stuff i want to do....
here are some of them:
* reduce garbage
* buy less new clothes
* sew more own stuff
* make waistbags and jewellery to sell on next years trip
* drive with my boyfriends quad before he sells it
* get my driving license (finally!!!)
* get more plants for my flat :) i want it to be a jungle!
* use cold months for creative work and studying
* mushrooming... i love penny buns!
* get out of the city!

off we go.

Went to Kritzendorf on saturday with Jacqueline to buy some fabric.
On the way we saw these awesome old locomotives...
there was also a "Tanz-wagon" (=dance-waggon) trailed!

This morning i made this bag, which is supposed to
carry Jacquelines towel and stuff when she goes swimming.
I think it turned out pretty well and she was very happy about it, too.

So finally tomorrow morning i will leave Vienna 
to go on the trip to France, Spain and Portugal with Lisa.
My backpack contains everything i will probably need 
during the next 7 weeks.... including my hammok, 
diving goggles, a snorkel, chargers for my cameras 
and lots of drawers^^
I will miss reading my favourite blogs, but 
i´m looking forward to catch up on all the new posts in September!
Also I´ll try to make some posts during the trip!
Have a terrific summer everyone!
