we thought it was time
to find new homes for some of the things
tucked away in our drawers
pieces from previous collections
one of a kind samples
take a look at our SAMPLE SALE
maybe you´ll find something you like for a very special price
have a wonderful late summer weekend
i´d love to be an INTERN


drop shaped sesame seeds
on a rainy sunday
slightly bitter SESAME COOKIES (based on these GOLD GILDED ONES)
i forgot to flatten them
didn´t matter
i´m addicted now (thank you, OF A KIND newsletter)
there is still time to let me know your idea for a FESTIVE PENDANT inscription HERE
to get one for free


for our pieces made of brass
we try to use only material knocking around in the workshop anyway
or cuttings form a metal pressing workshop we work with
those FESTIVE PENDANTS were made form covers for this BOOK that didn´t turn out so good
(ALLES WIRD GOLD is currently sold out at ZIERRAT UND GOLD 
but as you can see i already worked on some more)
some also arrived at WALD BERLIN
currently i´m coming up with new things to write on them
and in case you´d like to play along
let me know your ideas until next Friday
and in case i like your inscription best
you get a pendant with it on it for free
there´s only one condition:
i might like your idea so much i´d want to put it up for sale for others to enjoy
so you would have to be okay with that:)
tried to have a serious discussion with the cat
about not being so wild all the time
(she´s currently missing a patch of felt and skin from her leg)
but she kept on tearing newspapers apart like a maniac
so i guess i´ll have to live with a crazy creature
she can be so sweet though
when she´s tired out and snuggling in my bed
that´s until she decides it´s time to get up and do stuff like biting my neck
here she´s checking out a TINY BOUQUET i made
using some grapes i accidentally cut down when pruning the little vinyard
please do try that beet root spread from Ottolenghi´s Jerusalem
insane colour and so good
some brass lametta thing i´m working on
would you buy such a thing?
it lasts forever and has antique glass beads on it
also it doesn´t get tangled up in the christmas tree
looks like other people felt the same way about that SIX FEET UNDER episode
i found my self screaming at the TV
asking my room mate over and over "this can´t be true, can it?! that´s so awful"
oh, and i´d love to watch some of the other suggestions come fall
any other shows i might like to see?


judging by my head ache
there is a change in weather and season on its way
it´s soon the time of year where i´ll start having a cup of tea to go with my aspirin
i´m like an old lady and feel it also in my bones - something creeping up may hip and spine
but it´s still time to celebrate summer with an abundance of apricot things
tarts (crust made with sheep butter, spelt and buckwheat)
NINA´S and NICOLE´S apricot dumplings
(made mine with spelt flour and semolina and hazelnut with melted butter
the fruits were so big the dumplings had the size of the savory ones to go with a sunday roast)
the nurseries are selling their withered plants for cheap
got quite a bit for next year
also a baby´s breath variety called flamingo
i probably have to fertilize it with alga and plankton to keep its pink colour
found a couple of odd twig rings in the local Oxfam shop
i like weird jewellery
working on some exciting wintery things
something really new to me
found a nice work/life rythm lately
but things on my to do lists are piling up again
including finishing my study
which is going to be so clean and clear
i just can´t wait

my DOWN UNDER GUYS were featured in a Surfin´ Safari inspired post on the awesome blog GEMS
and next to them a plate by ALEX SICKLING i fell in love with
(also so amazing: PAPA BIRD PLATE and make sure to check out her TUMBLR)
so what´s even more awesome is that i was able to SWAP one of my WILD BUNCH GUYS for it
happy me 
thank you so much, Alex - and Mallory for bringing us together!
should i get this DRESS?


my birch trees during a storm this sunday
road my bike as fast as i could to escape it
(after it ended a cute baby shower very abruptly)
and then the sky looked baby blue and pink again
since i´m wearing THOSE SHOES all summer long
my toes look quite pale
and yes, i put something called circus confetti on my nails
just recently i discoverd matcha powder
so far i´ve only put it into cakes
it goes very well with an olive oil one too
and all kinds of berries
and lots of flours
got up extra early and saved two hydrangeas who didn´t like their spot at all
now they´ve switched places
the pink one started to turn its leaves up instead of down
which is a good sign
made me happy
so i put on my marni shorts from h&m 
(unfortunatly those sandals hurt so very much)
 i told you i´m into yellow now
a TINY BOUQUET made of chocolate cosmos, 
an old variety of yellow and brown cosmos and persian carpet zinnia
again in a vase by OTCHIPOTCHI
sent off some special FESTIVE PENDANTS to ZIERRAT UND GOLD
Nina is updating her shop very soon...


this heat seems to turn everything yellow
i´ve come to like this colour
but my first William Morris rose was peach coloured
last weekend we had a nice garden party
with quite a few cases of overeating (W and me being two of them)
so many nice people and so much good food
some of them traveled quite a bit to be here
(thank you so much JULIE and Rainer for coming
and trusting us with this lovely project)
somehow i´ve only managed to take a single picture
the one of the yellow vase filled with anemone japonica who doesn´t like to be cut
VASE CAPS with tiny garlic
my stack on UNRULY THINGS - thank you so much, Alyson
(i have to admit i never wear that many rings at once, 
it´s not that practical when handling tools and such)
the nicest write up on MISS MOSS - thank you very much, Diana
have a wonderful sunny weekend
