thank you so much for the warm welcome of our NEW COLLECTION
my cat´s wound got infected
so she had to wear a collar to keep her from licking off the antibiotics
had to turn my stray cat girl into a house cat
she´s doing okay but tried several times to escape her imprisonment so far
right now she´s scratching on the window putty
we´re quite the team of convalescents
slow but full of ideas
(she was so disoriented she sat on her toilet like a human being
told E about it and she painted a picture for me that pretty much nailed it)
made a marzipan tart loosely based on this RECIPE for my birthday
used my favorite pie crust and rolled it out in ground hazel nuts
and by adding lots of orange juice to the marzipan i accidentally created an utterly delicious marzipan cream
maybe the pistachios taste even better roasted
in the background you can see the May page of the wonderful ERNTEKALENDER by PHOTISSERIE 
(available HERE)
thank you all for your wonderful cards, well wishes and beautiful gifts
apparently i seem like a very busy lady
got not one but two LIST PADS
this pretty one was created by BASTIS RIKE
my parents tried to get the mother of pearl watch repaired i found on the flea market
but no one wanted to take it on, since it´s only pretty but very cheaply made
got lots of other pretty things instead
look out for a very tiny diamond ring W made me with some left over rose gold
(worn with a PUZZLE + VERY TINY DOTTED RING some prototypes and the ARROW BRACELET)
from a custom project that turned out pretty in the end
but was a disastrous adventure
we´re no gold smiths after all
S got me a fancy black dress
(the dotted one is a nicely executed H&M knock off of a CHLOE DRESS i do feel a bit bad about)
treated myself to quite a few cacti from a booth at the fun fair
those are only the tip of my cacti ice berg...
look at those colours, shapes and needles!
custom made PRETZEL NECKLACE with glass beads
last stages of my CARNAVAL DE NICE TULIPS
some things i like (or like to try):
grown up rice pudding
(roasting risotto rice in a bit of ghee and deglazing with white wine before adding goat milk, brown sugar and a bay leaf)
ALEX SICKLING´S NEW WORK (there are some Alpaca Planters on their way for me...)
a dark blue suede JAMES CASTLE BAG
ZEIT (pistacio parfait - thank you for the inspiration, S) MENUS (aniseed cake!)
a new BLANKET by Elisabeth Dunker
