My new old cupboard

My new old cupboard

The storage space in our hall has become scarce since the little man can walk and therefore also needs space in the shoe cabinet. It’s still two pairs of tiny little boots, but I’d rather prepare for a shoe collection like my daughter’s (or my own). The little box comes from my husband’s great-aunt and it fits perfectly with the other closet of my husband’s grandfather – a…

My favorite recipes: Paleo "sourdough" bread and pickled red onions

As a big fan of fermented and pickled foods, I’ve had two very special favorite recipes in my repertoire for a few months: Paleo “sourdough” bread made from cashew nuts and lightning-fast pickled red onions!

Sometimes you will unexpectedly find very special sweethearts, like today, for example! I am just moving my work space, and clear, sort and lumber around vigorously, because I find suddenly, at the very back under my huge work table, this wonderful antique wooden box! It’s from the old Frankfurt hypermarket, from where now the new chic ECB tower is scratching the skies. A relic from the old days,…

My new studio

My new studio

At the weekend, I finally moved into my studio, which I tore after the removal of my husband’s agency under the nail! After I’ve felt 500 times with fully packed Ikea bags and boxes from the gallery (so the top) in the agency (at the very bottom and even next door) marched, my new site is at least in the front part ready (and my summer figure saved!)…

My BYM advent calendar

Today, two of my advent calendars that I developed for bym.de are presented on the theme stage! I take this as an opportunity to show you my whole collection, maybe there is the right idea for this year’s calendar? Let’s go with these Advent calendars from paper cups, or plastic cups. One year later I sewed a calendar out of old denim pants , which is really great…
