My summer vacation is unfortunately over & lets begin with: where it ended!
I’ve been to Italy & actually can’t wait to show you the pictures, but I also REALLY, REALLY missed working with flowers… So here we go – a few quick images of roses & macarons.
I got back from a very sunny vacation in Italy – just to spend another perfect week with my little cousin & his lovely lady. They came to visit me in Germany & travelled Europe a little… They got me Macarons from Paris & we all decided, that it was not our kind of taste… It doesn’t really matter, because they are some little photogenic suckers! So I wonder: all these pretty images of macarons on Instagram – do you really love their taste or is it just because they look like supermodels of foodporn?
Do you remember me posting so many flower pictures? I love my little flower pictures, but it’s even more exciting to see your own photography blown up to a bigger size! Today I had a chance to display my flower pictures at the Kitchen Club here in Dortmund. It looks fresh & is perfect for the summer weather!
I am going to Italy this week, it’s going to be a loooong vacation & I won’t be posting a lot, so if you want to take a glimpse at my work: go to the Kitchen Club, enjoy the photography & eat the best food ever!
And if you are still not satisfied & catch yourself missing me: don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and look me up once in a while on VSCO!
Last weekend I had a garden party for my vintage enthusiastic friends. I always wanted to throw a summer garden party & mix it with a vintage event. It all started a day before the party, with collecting flowers for a summer decoration, I arranged dill & wild flowers from a field nearby. My car was full of flowers and bugs, but it was worth it! The garden was filled with such a nice smell coming from all the flowers & the dill! My friends and I had a great time, I had a chance to see everyone before my long summer vacation. Next to my vintage treasures I had a chance to display my illustrations, that I had blown up to decorate some of my vintage purses. What do you think of such a way of displaying bags? For everyone, who missed the event, there is going to be another one! I hope, real soon!
A few weeks ago I came across the VSCO Cam while searching for some new apps. You are not familiar with VSCO? So wasn’t I! What a shame! Go & get the VSCO Cam instantly if you are into photo apps! VSCO lets you display you pictures in a grid. Above you can see, that I am slowly building my grid, doesn’t it look great?
I downloaded some very nice filters, my favorites are called T1 – T3… Though I would recommend every filter: working with different filters is what makes VSCO so great because it is so different from other apps!
They describe themselves as a minimalist publishing platform that honors art and artists! They continue by saying ‘VSCO Grid is founded on the idea that beauty can be found by anyone in anyplace.’ My motto! What about you?
Before I forget: go to VSCO to take a look to my gallery…
My little company & I celebrate the summer! I have been enjoying the good weather with my best friend, who came to visit from Hamburg. We ate heart-shaped strawberries & had the bestest of time in the garden!
In 2 weeks I am going to Italy for a long summer vacation, but before this long vacation, I decided to have a little POP – UP PURSE PARTY! So I was preparing invitations for my garden party, painted water color balloons, tired to make some garlands (not pictured, yet).
This is, how the invitation turned out, how do you like it?
Will you come to meet us?
Last week was pretty colorful with all these flower images, so I made myself a quite & white mood board. Isn’t this white porcelain bug the most precious little thing you’ve ever seen? I got it here… He’s my favorite at the moment!
Can’t stop, won’t stop… I have been obsessed with flowers lately! I am not the kind of person to complain about the weather… I abandon myself to every weather out there. I love the winter & cold weather, so I didn’t even realize, how LATE spring/summer came this year. But: with everything in bloom right now, my love for flowers has become a real obsession & I go on collecting in my garden, the woods, I even stop to pick flowers on a random road when I see something beautiful… Pardon me, but I think this obsession will be forgiven, when you get rewarded with tons of beautiful flower images… So, here we go again: can’t stop, won’t stop!
I am a very passionate Instagrammer! But sometimes you get tired of the same old, same old! I love the look of Instagram but I got tired of the square images and wanted something new! So I got a new app & been experimenting ever since. Don’t you just love these?
But of course I haven’t been neglecting the square images! This, by the way, was ONE evening, isn’t the change dramatic:
Usually, I have to go to other cities to go on a Ferris wheel, this time it came to Dortmund! What a blast!
