again - poppies
Surry Hills
Cafe Gnome

Out for a walk, passing flowers, a cupboard out of the street, nice cafes with maps on their walls, sitting down in the sun with a coffee eventually. A good day!

>> I got Feist's new album the other day. This video is simply great
>< I adore Hilary's work, her scarves are so perfect

>< a winner

Trading Hours

It's been a hectic week and I hardly found time for myself and things I like to do - well, sometimes I wish to have a week full of Saturdays like I had it here ...

I am sorry it took me so long but I just drew the winner of my little give away and the lucky winner is Kerry. Yay! Kerry you will soon send some mail over the seas to London

Thank you so much again for your wonderful comments.

Two sisters

Two Sister - frankie magazine

Two Sister - frankie magazine

I think some of you might know that I am a big fan of the frankie magazine.
This magazine is just so beautifully made, has fun articles and most of all it sometimes seems to me like a wonderful photo album with all the wonderful photos in it.

It makes me so happy when I come home from a long day and open the mail box and find snail mail from a friend, something I ordered or frankie in it . When I got the latest issue last week it really made my day. I was sitting down instantly and flicked through the magazine and my eyes caught this beautiful article about two sisters sharing their lives and everything else together. The images are taken by Nadia Sablin and I think she captured so many wonderful moments of their way of living together. How beautiful is the picture them sitting over a crossword puzzle...

I also wanted to thank you all for your wishes on my last post. I can't tell you how much they made me smile. You still have a couple of days to enter the give-away.

>> The luckiest girl of the week must have been Marion, she witnessed a secret concert of Feist in Paris. Her pictures show many wonderful moments of this evening.

>> 2


On Sunday I realized that today is the second birthday of Schorlemaedchen.

Yes, I know two years, really?! - Two years seem like such a short time but when I think of all the big and small moments which happened and how many images and lines I have shared on this space here it seems as if this little space here exists a lot longer ...

Like last year I would like to give something away. I am not sure yet what it will be but I will put together a nice surprise for the lovely winner. Just leave a comment below, I will draw and announce the lucky winner next week.

Thank you so much for coming by, for leaving a comment and saying 'hi'.

Is there anything you enjoyed the most in the last two years?

knit in Spring

resting pears
knitted socks
rhubarb stew

Some calm images from an old film roll.
# Resting pears before I cooked them in orange juice
# My grandmother made knitted socks for me, a shame it will be soon too hot to wear them
# We made strawberry/rhubarb compote yesterday to top our breakfast with it

I had the camera around my neck today after having blood-orange juice with a friend. It was a nice long walk and soon I will show you what a sunny and pretty day it was here today.

>> These images make me pretty excited for our trip to Tasmania next month
>< The new M83 album will be out soon, you can already listen into it here. I think it is pretty amazing!
<< Next time I am in Melbourne, I would like to stop by this beautiful looking shop

On a rainy day I sit on the couch, knitting, drinking tea and taking a couple of pictures of everything around me while listening to George Harrisson.
Rainy days can be the best days.

on the ferry

We are having a long weekend here in Sydney and let me tell you it is wonderful to have lots of time to spend for things you wanted to do in a long time.
We also made it to the great farmers market in Prymont which takes place every first Saturday of the month.

#1 The weather is a bit funny here lately and can't decide if it should be sunny or windy
#2/3 We got great veggies and herbs for beautiful dinners
#4/5 Rested with a great coffee from Single Origin stall
#6 Took the ferry to Balmain
#7 I got a beautiful waratah which is a typically Australian flower.

I hope you are having a great start into the week,
