so have you been guessing what i did with all those chanterelles? i’m telling you it wasn’t easy to decide. 
of course you’re never wrong with chanterelle sauce next to fluffy dumplings but i’m not a big dumpling fan, also I’m trying hard to make healthier choices here: enter quiche… haha. not healthy at all.

anyhow, here’s what i did. cleaned the chanterelles. better not listen to any recipes who tell you to wash them! do not, ever! they’l soak all the water inn and you won’t be happy with them. so just, brush off all the remaining forest stuff, like tiny beetles and spiders and things. for the dough:
1/3 cup wholeweat flour, maybe a bit more,
1 Tbsp butter,
Salt,
1 Tbsp cold Water,
Rosemary,
mix it really good and spread it in your pan. bake for some minutes, until it’s golden and you can smell rosemary all over the kitchen. 


for the filling:
cut your chanterelles (about 200g i probably used much more…),
chop off an onion and put them in a frying pan until they are golden, add the chanterelles and garlic, wait until the chanterelles are soft. 
in a bowl mix together 2 eggs, 1/3 milk or cream, salt and pepper plus a little cheese about 50g.


so when the crust is done fill in the chanterelles and add the cream/egg stuff. bake for half an hour.

last weekend the boy took my out on a mushroom expedition ;) remember last autumn? we visited the same woods again and looked for chanterelles. you can really see the seasons change in the woods. i love that!
he found a baby boletus (me too but mine was even smaller). after finding only a lot of tiny chanterelles like you see in my hand down there, the boy remembered a special part of the wood nearby which we immediately looked out for.


i’m telling you, the woods, that’s my happy place. so much green, so manny tiny plants. and fern! oh sooo pretty!

while looking for the special place, we rested on these stumps for about… half a minute until the huge super ants attacked us. not so friendly after all.


can you see this fern? isn’t it the most beautiful you’ve ever seen? i wanted to bring one with me! but i couldn’t. why? well there where to manny chanterelles to carry. ;) the boy found the place in the woods he remembered and what waited for us there where – and i’m not lying – HUGE chanterelles, and so manny!


these where tiny ones ;) i was amazed. and happy. and hungry.

thank you for the trip mr. <3

in my nursery at my parents home i used to have a map of the world. it was huge and old and beautiful. i loved it.
for my own flat i’ve always wanted my own map, but they either where super expensive or not the way i wanted them to look, so guess what i did ;) … i made one. surprise surprise!

pan is fond of it too! if you’d like to make one for yourself here’s what you need: a pice of fabric, i used black linen 1m x 0,7ma wooden stick which is a bit longer than your fabric,white yarn,a projector with a world map image,and some white fabric chalk.
this is what you do:you pin your fabric to a plain wall and project the world map onto it. now carefully retrace the map with the chalk. this might be a bit tricky because of your own shadow ;) but i know you can do it. after that you either use your sewing machine or a needle to sew with the white yearn along the drawn lines. yea that takes some time. now all there is left to do is to sew a tunnel for the wooden stick. tadaaa! all done. of course you could also add some strings on the sides.

do you like it? i think it looks like a chalkboard :) and it fitts perfectly next to my red ampersand i did years ago. what do you think?

even though it&#8217;s supposed to be super warm and all sunny, summer seems to think it&#8217;s cool to rain down on us every second day. well at least that&#8217;s the perfect weather for a long skirt. sewing this wasn&#8217;t so hard actually, ok it might not look like one out of the store but it sure feels that way. 


i&#8217;m still working on the crop top belly… with more time on my hands in summer i feel like cooking and baking more often. 
the straw hat from stuttgart fit&#8217;s perfectly to the yellow, i think!

On a rainy summer day like today it almost feels like autumn. i do like cosy, rainy summer days… they are good for work days like the last few have been. but also for a good book, coffee and some music.
my favourite rainy day outfit includes my dungarees and a cosy sweater plus the colorfull fruit socks i made for we love handmade. did you see them?

i think they turned out pretty cute. there&#8217;s also a strawberry version! check it out. :) the tutorial is in german but i took pictures for every step.

hello there! did you see my new layout and design? i&#8217;m in the process to rebrand this side, or my internet persona. what do you think?
next to working all day on different projects, i&#8217;m already looking forward to my vacation in august. we#re going to croatia again :) can&#8217;t wait. since i know i&#8217;m going to bring back all sorts of tiny seashells and other findings, i thought of making this little jar. i found it in the kitchen department at a store but i guess you can take it for every other purpose as well.
so here&#8217;s what you need: the jar, porcelain paint, a toothpick or a really thin brush.

now after decided upon the motive, i went for an anchor because this is going into my bathroom, you just start drawing. it&#8217;s possible to draw with a soft pencil at first, just in case you&#8217;re not sure about the size of your motive.


afterwards it&#8217;s as always, either let it dry for more than 48 hours or burn it in the oven, according to paint description. 

also, make sure someone helps you make a mess. thanks pan ;)

you could actually use this for kitchen spices as well. sea salt maybe. let me hear what you think about my new design please!

Last summer the mr. (not actually being the mr. then… because you know things just happened afterwards…;) ) and i went on an adventure trip to hamburg. so this year we took a trip to stuttgart to experience the tarzan musical.

traveling is so much easier these days. haha talking like this makes me feel old, but i remember my first flight, where everything was on paper and you had to double check everything… now it&#8217;s just you boradingcard on your phone… looking super smart ;)

we had a flat just outside the city center via airbnb, which was super nice. but we didn&#8217;t really spend much time there.

we actually just brought our stuff into the flat and went out to explore stuttgart.

there is this huge park which led us straight into the city, there even where cops on horses! and cute ducklings who where quit nosey.

we walked around the city center when the night came and hat dinner at a nice little chinese place.

the next morning began with coffee and breakfast in the park. that&#8217;s my favorite thing about our vacation &#8220;routine&#8221; (it&#8217;s been two times, can you call it a routine?) it&#8217;s just so relaxing to sit between threes and ducks and little ponds and have coffee as long as you&#8217;re willing to sit there.

after coffee and a train ride to the city we explored. there was this big marked hall with loots of food and a super nice store upstairs, where i could have spend all my money…

there where lot&#8217;s of mirrors to buy and take photos in ;) but he&#8217;s just so tall he didn&#8217;t make the picture.

ok i shot another one with him in the frame as well ;) 

i didn&#8217;t spend all of my money, just a bit… but who could resist this amazing hat? and burt&#8217;s bees tinted lip balm …?


after coffee and more walking we changed into your fancy-pants and headed to the theater where we enjoyed the most amazing show. i&#8217;m telling you, if you like musicals YOU&#8217;VE GOT TO WATCH TARZAN. gorillas flying around through the ceiling, amazing costumes, the light. pure magic!

after a night like this it&#8217;s hard do have another amazing day. but don&#8217;t you think we couldn&#8217;t make that happen…

after the morning coffee routine in the park the mr. had the amazing idea to visit the museum of natural history. and guess what we saw there?!

DINOSAURS! :) could it get any better?


we spend lot&#8217;s of time in there learning about the dinosaur evolution, how there where fish and birds and then they became the dinosaurs we now know.

after this we had to pack and head to the airport. flying home wasn&#8217;t as funny as the first part of the trip. let&#8217;s just say that stuttgarts airport just isn&#8217;t that well signposted… anyways we made it back home.

i had an amazing trip and i hope you did too mr.? :*find even more pictures on flickr!
have you ever been to stuttgart? did i miss something important?
