Isn´t it amazing, how many beautiful colors one can find in one flower? 
This is perfection

wonderful old thing

Remember this post about my Agfa Clack camera from the 50´ies/´60ies? I shot some more pictures with it, and I still can´t believe how well it works. The only thing that I really do need is a tripod to make the camera stay completely still while taking pictures with it.

I must admit, that I really do love this simply wonderful old thing...

simple and pretty

The other day my oldest sister came back from a trip to Germany, with her bags filled with really nice necklaces she bought at a local market. Those necklaces are so simple, mostly made out of wooden beads in different sizes and colors - and SO beautiful! 
I felt really inspired and the day after I met my sister, I went straight to the next "Tiger"-shop, where they sell small bags with different kind of wooden beads and started making my own necklaces. 

I was so happy with the result, that I bought some more beads in different colors at "Tiger" and am  already fantasizing about making myself some more of those. I´d love to try dyeing my own beads with something like nail polish or maybe fabric-dye?

The first one

Nr. 2 - love those colors - this one makes me happy!

Nr. 3 - those are not wooden beads but really pretty anyway...

All three together

the only one

When I was 6 years old one of my biggest wishes was to have a pink woolen sweater. 
For my first day in school my mother fulfilled this wish and put some pink pants on top... 
I can still remember how happy I was wearing my new pink pants and my sweater - the only pink one I ever got...

Here I am, wearing my pink pants and pink woolen sweater that day,
