Inspiration - Studio Fludd.

I found this item via the lovely & inspiring mint blog. It is made by Studio Fludd, an italian
design collective, based in Venecia. Have a look on their shop, so wonderful!


It is raining today. And it seems that it won't stop. I hate greygrey days, when you are forced
to light all rooms even on daytime. I should work for my degree. I should go in for sports again.
But my motivation is low. Probably "Frühjahrsmüdigkeit"?

I wonder if this illustration above needs some colours. I am not sure. Sometimes it is too much
and one regrets and can't recreate the original state. Ha, difficult! What do you think?

Message from Anna!

Yesterday I received a nice package from Anna with a nice vintage bag & a lovely message
from her. So cute!

This is what I plan to harvest in a few ( hopefully sunny and warm) month!
Oh – I think, I forgot the peppers...

This week.

Because Lotte's looks so great, I gave the avocado plant another try this week.
A lot of blood oranges and the biggest grapefruits I have ever bought.
Everything is blooming, so beautiful! Especially the cherry flowers!
Second round for the little greenhouse, hopefully as sucessful as the first!
I did some gardening.
Bunnies enjoyed their first garden run!
Nice deserts and ice cream.
First walk without socks in my summer shoes.
And yesterday there was barbecue for dinner, yummy!

New succulents!

Echeveria gibbiflora, cheiridopsis candidissima & Portulacaria afra car. variegata.

Today my uncle visited us and we went here. First it was nice and we stroll around, just amazed
by the big and beautiful plants wondering how old they may be. But then, out of a sudden, three
buses stopped infront the greenhouse and the masses rolled over us. Luckily I made my choices
yet and carried out a few new lovely succulents for my collection (I decided to call it a collection
to justify future plant shopping tours!), I will show you some images soon!

Inspiration - vintage plant.

Found this page a few seconds ago and really liked its idea to adopt plants for growing and
selling them!

J'aime des ovins.

I just love sheep! Maybe I can have a little flock one day!

Vintage finds.

Went to the thrift store this week and found two tops, both under 5€.
Creme colored and made of light fabric. Just the right clothes for spring!

Spring spring!

This morning I cleaned the flat for Mr T coming home today. Fixing of his apendix went well,
just three little cuts under his belly.
For then I have a quite strange but calcium rich breakfast: a cheese plate! In spite of the fact that
there is nothing else in the fridge than several sorts of cheese I found a pear for vitamine part.
I love cheese, especially the creamy strong ones! Yesterday was a very sunny and warm day, so
today will be as well, I guess. All of the windows are open for fresh air my plants are enjoying as
much as sun!

My little pepper seeds did root well and now they have become strong little baby planst. So I
decided that it is time they have their own little space instead of sitting together in one little
pot. There is also another plant grown I don't know what it is yet. We'll see.

This afternoon I travel home to Mr. T and we will hopefully spend a nice and calm sunday.
On monday morning I will take him to hospital for fixing his rupture of apendix.

Hope you have a nice sunny weekend, not as rainy as mine is right now.

Bottled Garden.

This project is in my mind for such a long time. I think this glass garden looks so beautiful,
like a whole world on its own. Maybe I find the right bottle or some similar glass jar to make
it come true.

I bought another bag. Yes, I did. I probably have to confess, that I am kind of obsessed with
vintage leather bags. But how cute is the inner lining?! I just couldn't resist!

Images from here.

Good luck, little man!

This is Herr Kneisel and he has to be taken to the doctor today. He lives with my parents-in-law
but I really love him. There is a vertex on his chest since a couple of days and he refuses all kind
of food. So I hope there will be just an infection or something. And no malignancy again.
I am totally sick of that.

Baby Veggies.

Here are some images of my baby vegetables! The little greenhouse is pretty old and not very
nice, it is plastic and has some cracks already - but it still works!

This week:
Grief was heavy.
I made beet root tortellini with spinach and gorgonzola stuffing.
Did a little drawing.
Wrote my exposé, sent it and got a positive response!
Got a huge coppa banana cup - yummy!
Visited an old lady in hospital.
Ate pizza instead of veggies and fruit. I will do better.
And I watched my little inside vegetable garden growing!
I have six baby plants of melons, four cucumbers, six fennels and (just, but nevertheless)
one nasturtium!

Look what I found at the first fleamarket this year! Isn't it beautiful? I longed for that kind of
lovely book about herbs for such a long time! Actually it should be a gift for a friend but I
will keep it for myself and find another for her!
And I found some cute little milk jugs! They fit perfectly to a my mocca cups.
I wish you a nice and sunny weekend and hopefully there will be bigger doom in Japan.
