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


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 @stoeplers
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?
