Moody Poppies

31 03 2014

The weather forecast for this week reads amazing:

Warm and sunny with temperatures around 20 degrees!!! 

But today is still kind of gray and a bit moody.

Perfect for showing you these pictures of the poppies I made last week.

The flower lady at the market had gifted me with a whole bunch of poppies.

She said, she won't be able to sell them anyway because they won't open properly. She had observed how intrigued I was by them because I love poppies and these ones looked absolutely fascinating and charming to me with their curved and arched stems and their half open blossoms.

They looked cheerful and pretty on our table  but I also wanted to show another side of them in a different light situation and with a cloth as a backdrop.

Thankful For All This Light

27 03 2014

"What are you thankful for in March?", is Nics question today.

I am very thankful for all this gorgeous light streaming through the large windows in our new apartment.

It's only now, that I realize how dark our old place was (not only in the winter months!) and how different and wonderful it feels to live in and with all this natural light.

What a pleasure!

I am also thankful for Nics great photo project BIWYFI which unfortunately ends today.

I always loved to participate. Thank you Nic!

Happy Day,

DIY: Easy Wooly Flower - Headband

25 03 2014

End of last week I played a bit with carnations.

My lovely daughter joined in.

DIY easy wooly headband with fresh flowers, Elfenkrone selbstgemacht

Poor girl - she had to stay home from school for a week dealing with a really bad flu-like cold and fever for many days. 

It was a hard week for both of us because she loves her weekly rhythm with lots of sports, activities and friends.

Not being able to do any of this and being tied to the sofa made her even more miserable.

The day I brought home the carnations was the first day she was feeling better.

I was so glad to finally see her smiling and having rosy cheeks again!

We came up with this super simple to make headband. So cute and romantic...

In case you like to make one too you'll need:

 - 3,5 meter merino wool roving and some fresh flowers to decorate the headband

Leaving a tail of about 40cm roving simply chain the wool with your fingers until desired length around the head is reached.

Tie both tails together with a knot and then another knot.

Cut the flower stems short and weave them into the wooly chain.

That's all.

After we were done playing with the headband I stored it on a wall hook and by now - a few days later - the flowers have beautifully dried up and the headband makes a nice decoration...

Happy Day,
