- Atlanta is in full bloom. These are the days between cozy cardigans and shorts. I wish I would have been better prepared for this. I am still unpacking some of the last moving boxes and finally discovered the needed summery clothes! Oh and I found my Easter decoration, bunny you are too late for the party, off duty until next year. I am looking forward to spend some time in Atlanta’s Botanical Garden. Everyone is raving about it!
- It’s the weather for maxi dresses and lunch breaks in the sun. But still, nights are chilly. I like to carry my denim shirt (picture top
rightleft) with me all day and pull it out when needed. It looks even better with some winkles. And I could wash it very hot if something leaks in my bag and there are yoghurt stains all over… not that this ever happened to me.
- My middle sister gave me Earl Grey’s Lady Violet, knowing my love for this kind of tea (picture top right). This is definitive not your regular black tea. I really enjoy the flavors: citrussy, perfume-like and flowery. The color is pale, but pale is elegant. Sold here or here.
- Although I am a lover of aprons, I somehow forget about them and end up with stains. Even worst is my habit to wipe my hands on my pants. This apron is sturdy and durable (picture right bottom), I just have to remember to put it on. Since the start of the BBQ season I have to share it with Mr. F and denim is easy on the eye, rather than flowery pink aprons…
- I have a weak spot for Budapest shoes, Brogues shoes or Oxford shoes or what ever you call them… Those are so very much spring, love the colors.
- Mr. F is a genius in making homemade sausage especially German bratwurst. I thought I should contribute at least a nice mustard and made Bryan Picard’s country mustard. He is a chef and blogging at The Bite House. Making mustard is so easy, you should try! This recipe leads into a flavorful and punchy mustard and is much better than anything store bought.
- Little America! I stick to my position: there is always a need for a new bag. Also it’s an awesome color.
- My friend Sandy from Confiture de Vivre (remember her beautiful guest post soup de fruits on 1 big bite?) and Meeta from What’s for lunch honey? joined forces and conducted a workshop in a historic building together in Weimar, Germany. Their ideas and their effort had been very successful and I hope there will be more workshops coming up. Read Sandy’s Rückblick here in German and here in English what Meeta wrote about all the fun they had.
