Green, green, green …

With every day it feels more like spring and summer are here for good now – my nose got its first sunburn of the year! 😀

As mentioned before, the absolute spring color for me is green. So that’s the color that can be found all over the apartment… 🙂

One might think that candles in the bathroom are unnecessary
as we don’t have a bathtub and therefore no romantic baths…

… but who says you that folding laundry can’t be romantic either? 😉

Spice up your life!

Today we had dinner in the city and we were not sitting INSIDE the restaurant but OUTSIDE – first time this year! And it felt amazing 🙂 spring is so wonderful! It’s amazing how bright and light it is outside. These days the sun rises a bit after 5am and sets around 9pm – it surprises and confuses me again every day 😉

As every season, spring is great for decoration. However, apart from my spring-prep post I haven’t shared any of the “springness” here. As I’m slowly getting back to my usual energy level after the first weeks of new job, I hereby announce some spring-posts-to-come-this-week 😉

An absolute must have during spring and summer are herbs. I do not have a very green thumb so I’m not a big fan of buying more than two pots of basil in the supermarket (which I’ll usually throw away after two weeks because they just didn’t want to be with me and my not-green-thumb 😉 ). This year it’s different – we went to a real garden center and bought five (!!) different herbs and are really putting effort into them: not only when it comes to the right amount of water and the perfect place but also the decoration 🙂 Continue reading

Fabric present

When my mum came here for visiting last week, she has not only brought me a suitcase full of (childhood) books that I still had in Vienna but also two biiiig pieces of fabric!

She bought the fabric some time ago, fully motivated for making new pillow cases. Well… loads of other things came up and that’s why the fabric now ended up with me – I’m a lucky girl, having the best mum in the world 😉

And it’s not only some kind of fabric: it’s Marimekko fabric!! As you maybe recall from one of my first blog posts, I’m slightly crazy about Marimekko 🙂 That’s why I’m especially happy about this gift! Continue reading

It’s shopping time!

Finally!! I talked about a secret project already in one of last week’s blog post and yes, it took longer than expected to get it all going and ready to be talked about…

The last few days and weeks my sewing machine and I were really busy with all the creativity and the ideas – and today it’s FINALLY time to make the big announcement: the online shop of sachensucherin has officially opened 🙂

Sewing is great. And very useful – because there is all kinds of pretty things you can use for yourself. But at some point this personal needs are satisfied. I don’t need 10 place settings. Or 5 sleeping masks. That’s why I’ve decided to sell my handmade products in an own online shop. Continue reading

But now it’s really time for Spring…

After my last post – so one and a half weeks ago, time passes so fast – I escaped the cold, grey, wintery weather here in Sweden and took a plane to Spain. Yes. I enjoyed a whole week of Spanish Spring and it was amazing.

Warm, beach, sunny, sea. Blooming flowers, green grass. Being outside without five layers of clothes.

Don’t get the wrong idea – it was far from really hot summer weather and no, we did not take a swim in the sea. For that it is definitely too early. But it was amazing to feel the sun on the skin, to sit outside in the restaurants, to see the nature waking up. It was perfect for recharging my batteries and filling up my body with sun.
