Pickles is a Norwegian blog filled with lovely DIY projects as home accessoires, clothing and yummy recipies. Heidi and Anna do a lot of craft projects and come up with their own patterns which they want to share. What a great idea! I especially love the crocheted lampshade and the pouf. Pickles is written in Norwegian, so maybe using google translate is a good idea. 
Update: Great news: Heidi and Anna have some of their tutorials available in English now. And there are more to come.

Aren't these textiles from Inleaf just lovely? Lotta Helleberg, a Swedish native and graphic designer founded Inleaf in 2003. For the printing Lotta coats leafs with fabric paint and presses them onto fabric to create towels, napkins, pillows, totebags and scented sachets. To learn more about her and her work visit her website and to buy her products visit her Etsy shop.

Domestic Candy

I'm a little bit better today, so I'm able to browse a little bit through my favorite blogs. And so I stumbled upon Domestic Candy over at Decor8. Domestic Candy is a DaWanda shop run by the german interior and product designer Kerstin. And the products are just so lovely. Available are trees, brooches and easter decoration made out of wood, and a small range of note books.

Fill-In-The-Blank Invitation from Bread + Butter

Here is a little candy for you, before I'm back to bed: Isn't this Fill-In-The-Blank Letterpress Invitation from Bread + Butter great? So simple yet fun. 
See you!

Sick + thank you!

Hello everybody. I haven't been online for some days because of a really bad flu. And it will still take some days I think. But I wanted to let you know, that I'm alive. :)
The days in Hamburg were great. It's always great to meet family, to chat and to spend time with each other, don't you think? I will show some pictures, when I'm fit enough (the picture above shows the Hamburg harbor). 
I wanted to thank you for your lovely comments lately. I really appreciate it, every comment is a little treasure for me and it makes me happy that you enjoy my blog!

Home of Nicolette Camille

There is a very inspiring sneak peek over at Design Sponge. It's the home of floral designer Nicolette Owen of Nicolette Camille. It is dreamy and feminine. And of course it is full of flowers and plants. One of my favorite details is the intense blue wall in the picture on the bottom.
See the whole sneak peek on Design Sponge.
