production in bulk!


Velvet, silk and viskose....
The stripes of gold-yellow silk are from a second hand skirt (too big for me, just bought for the reason to help my Fabric-Fundus to go sky-high.....)
But I found a way to spotlight the beautiful fabric!






all packaging bags used up...new year, new sales...(hopefully!)

"folded Earrings"

Some of these are finished!
They have a matt surface. Oxidized, and then treated with ground pumice stone, so the oxidation appears just in places.

Die linsenförmigen Ohrhänger haben eine matte Oberfläche, die durch oxidieren und späteres Behandeln mit Bimsstein Mehl entsteht.

The fastest fast food!

..shortly we will have opulent meals, but here is one of my favorite "busy days" receipt! PIZZA TOAST !

some slices of toast, one mozzarella, tomato paste, salt and "pizza herbs" !
That´s all.
5 minutes in the sandwich toaster


...tastes delicate like pizza,
served with my favorite winter vegetables: chicoree (Belgian endive) ...and in a wonderful dragonflies-plate, I bought from the german ceramic artist Hildegard Schemehl

Have look at her Shop , where she offers impressing "Raku - ceramic"


Have a great weekend all!

Making a ........! Part 2


For those who saw the preparations....here´s the solution:
a christmas present to a lovely eight years old girl: a dollhouse living room suite

What you need is: fabric scrap, a wooden strip, contact glue, wadding, cardboard,
some decorative braid....
Saw, stapler and hot glue gun...
....and taking delight in some chaotic crafting!














looks inviting, right?

This is going to be the table...

..and at the last a leather pouf in turquoise .


Voila! ...
Benni is the Tester, and he seems to be quite happy with this!

Time flies !

This little guy is about 20 years old and still 11 cm tall.
I made him for my daughter, and these dolls are available still!
From all accsessoires I crafted then, I would like to show this tiny tiny sleeping bag,
lined and with a zipper, just like the big ones.
The zipper doesn´t work anymore after years in the attic !
yes, have a nap! I need you modeling for my tiny crafting project....
....to be continued!
