Five pictures friday

Today is about what I love this week. Well, this week started with me being sick at home (which wasn’t a good start at all), but luckily I had the best cuddle-you-back-to-health comando on my side.


My Bo-dhi is the best heating blanket. And his stare is.... bo-dhi-licious.


The cat (currently called „Das Katertier“) is watching all this cuteness rather skeptically.


I’ve wanted one of Pole Star’s jewels for so long now. Mostly I added her necklaces with natural semi-precious stones to my favorites on Etsy and soon enough they’d been sold and I was sorry to have missed the opportunity. Not this time! On Monday I finally got my necklace: a quartz stone with inclusions (turbulence quartz) – so pretty and such a big stone, too.


Meanwhile everyone is waiting for spring. (Psst, we down here in Southern Bavaria still have tons of snow. ) And my mom bought lots of tulips for me – thanks mom!


I just love my huge Bree bag (solely for business and traveling) and all the stuff that fits inside. For traveling back to Bavaria on Monday I packed: Carmex lipbalm, Mary Quant lipstick in Tokyo Toffee (a natural red)(only available in Japan), MAC Studio Careblend Powder, handwarmers (bought), self-crocheted beret, newly crocheted handwarmers (to finish of loose ends during train passage), iPod touch, kindle, Moleskine Weekly planer; more crochet hooks, medicine (in pink self-sewn pouch – by hand!), new crochet project in blue bag, my Japanese crochet hooks and – very important when being sick – Japanese heating pads (will stay warm for 8 hours).

So, weekend is upon us! I'll knit and crochet away (after doing some much needed cleaning in the apartment.). What are your plans? 
Thank you for visiting and have a great one!

Frage - Foto - Freitag - Five pictures friday

I've wanted to participate for quite some time now: Frage-Foto-Freitag is hosted by the German Lifestyle and Food-blogger Steffi every friday. She asks 5 questions (or sometimes less) and all who want to participate answer with pictures!
So let's start.

 Today: What makes you happy?


 Knitting. It's very relaxing. And in the end you've got something warm for the cold wind in winter.


 Pictures with lots of colors. I desperately need to draw again.


 Light. When taking pictures I always try to capture the light. Besides, in winter one can't really get enough light.


 Love. There is no way around it. Family, friends, pets - I love them all.


Japan. And traveling. But mostly traveling in Japan.

 That sums it up.

InstaMonth January Edition


Hello there and thank you for visiting. Thank you for commenting - your opinions are always valued.
January is already over and I'm quite thankful for that. We had lots to do at work and are still busy with a machine fair. So many orders to take and quotations to make!

January - when it's snowing and storming - is the perfect month to knit and crochet, which I've been doing everyday in the evening to relax. (The snood in the above picture was made by me after a free pattern by the fabulous Lindsi from People webs. I made a few for friends before christmas.)


In February I'll be at home for a few days and I'm looking forward taking care of my pets - cat and two dogs. Hey Bo-dhi-licious cutie - wait for me. I wanna cuddle you quite thoroughly.


Other than that, I wish the weather would get better. *sigh*

Tomorrow I'll be on Munich expedition again - I'll hope to buy new skeins of wool to get creative.
Wish you all a great weekend! What are you planning to do?
