Virtual Tea Party 2020 – Christmas Edition

Today is the final Virtual Afternoon Tea for this year – and what a strange and frightening year it has been. Su’s wonderful idea to bring us all together over our favorite tea treats and have a little chat each month was one of few highlights I had the great pleasure to enjoy this year.Continue reading “Virtual Tea Party 2020 – Christmas Edition”

The Changing Seasons – December 2019

  It’s time again for the wonderful challenge The Changing Seasons hosted by my dear friend Su from Zimmerbitch!   The month started with me having made prints from some of my watercolor paintings for this year’s Christmas cards to my dear (blogging) friends.     This proved to be a more arduous task than I had anticipatedContinue reading “The Changing Seasons – December 2019”

The Changing Seasons – November 2019

  It’s time again for the wonderful challenge The Changing Seasons hosted by my dear friend Su from Zimmerbitch!   As usual November is a very busy month for me as I try to make as many handmade Christmas gifts as possible for family and friends.

Pulled From the Archives: Last Minute Low-Budget DIY Christmas Presents

  Due to recent events I still find myself in rather a low place at the moment and although I kind of promised myself to never do this because I consider myself an endless fountain of creativity and inspiration 😉 , I now have decided to pull some earlier posts from my archives and reblogContinue reading “Pulled From the Archives: Last Minute Low-Budget DIY Christmas Presents”

Belated Merry Christmas! 

Actually I wanted to post this pic of my poinsettia on Christmas Sunday but due to my current problem with my internet provider I’m relying on free WiFi from the local library or a cafe at the moment, both of which were naturally closed during the hols. I hope your holidays went great. Mine IContinue reading “Belated Merry Christmas! “


  Christmas draws nearer and nearer and I´m awfully busy making self-made gifts for friends and family – like every year I promise myself to start earlier than before, and like every year I utterly fail to keep that promise… 😉 This year I decided to spice up my gifts with little sheeps that canContinue reading ““Baa!””

Merry Christmas! Seasonal Greetings from the South Pole

  Since everyone is concentrating on the North Pole these days (´cause that´s were Santa´s supposed to live;), I thought some seasonal greetings from the South Pole wouldn´t come amiss;) Wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!! Have a lovely time!!!
