Sleepover Preperations



Pale Rose Cottage is SO comfortable, that I rarely wish to go elsewhere. Even just for a night. However I now packed a bag of clothes, toiletries and what not to sleep somewhere other than my own room here at the cottage...

Taste of the Sea


I remember vividly going to the beach as a child with my family. The salty breeze in your hair and the grainy sand between your toes. Looking for seashells, building castles together & the sun making the sea look shiny and silver. Like a massive mirror reaching as far as your eyes could see...

Summer Nature Table & Felted Bowl



Summer is definitely here, the sun is out every day. You have to fan yourself, you drink liters of homemade lemonade & even though you are wearing a sundress and sandals, it's super hot at Pale Rose. Yesterday it was 34 degrees Celsius! Time to surround yourself with cool colors and sights of relaxation, don't you agree? I pulled out some things and created a summer nature table, to help us get that holiday feeling...

High T & A Busy Bee


Been short on time these last few days. Well, I've been busy I mean. Mom had to go to some doctor appointments and I saw my GP as well. We had to do some food shopping, cleaning & I went to the city to find some new summer clothes on sale.

Loads of things seemed to come together and I haven't done as much crafting as I would have loved. So many projects and so little time ;) I have made two tiny bees...

Edible art & Victorian Gifts


Food brings out the artist in me. Combining shapes and colors as well as different textures is a creative process. Or it can be if you want it to. A plate of food arranged beautifully looks so much tastier than a plate on which you piled a few blobs, doesn't it...

Happily Making Lunch



Sewing and cooking are hobbies of mine. I really enjoy both & when you can do one or the other in the company of loved ones it doubles the fun. My sister came to lunch, remember me telling you about that in my last post? It was a spontaneous decision and it brought me joy and a little bit of a nervous feeling in my tummy. Thinking about our food supply and the limitations in regards of elaborate creativity...

Taragon Cookies & Lunch at my Sister's


We have a massive tarragon plant in the garden here at Pale Rose. Started out as a tiny plant in a small pot. So small in fact that my sister mentioned we should get two of them. One would surely get lost in the spacious garden. Mom told me the other day she was glad not to have taken my sisters advice. The tarragon feels right at home here & grows bigger and bigger every single day...

Letters of Love & Recycling


I always believed that there is something magical about a handwritten letter. Seeing that special persons very own handwriting, holding the paper that they once held. Feeling the emotion and the energy contained in the letter. It's just so unbelievably special and meaningful, don't you agree? So if you do get that (nowadays rare) handwritten letter in the mail, you'll keep it forever! I know I do...

Knitting, Octavio & Elderflower Tea



Knitting is one of my favorite things to do. Picking up a boll of yarn, a couple of needles and following a pattern to the T, in order to create. It's not just fun but also really well, almost therapeutic I'd say. Keeping your hands occupied and the soft sound of the needles as you knit is relaxing...

Sewing Sweets, Cherries & Broadbeans


A bowl full of cherries for breakfast just screams summer to me. Their bright red color and sweet flavor reminds me of long sunny days. Cherries are cheerful & they are good for you as well. Even though childhood seems far away at times, a bowl of cherries brings it really close. I cannot help but search for double cherries and the temptation to wear them as earrings (like the girl in this picture ) is hard to resist :D ...
