I love gathering flowers, branches, twigs, anything I can find for floral arrangements around the house. Now there are no flowers left in our garden, and most of the leaves have fallen from our trees. But there’s always something. Here’s a little bundle I rounded up yesterday, featuring ivy berries. I didn’t pick them all, […]
Call it a sunroom, call it a Wintergarten, call it a conservatory… I call it a gift, the best seat in the house. We eat our meals here, and I watch the sun rise and set here. Even on a cloudy or rainy day, I can get all the light I need, and […]
So glad to have my Kartoffelkorb (potato basket) back! Here it is showcasing the bounty of an afternoon of farm-hopping.
I believe life is better when things around you look nice. A windowsill over the kitchen sink is such a pleasure, and dish washing supplies can look good, too!
What is the first thing you do when you move into a new home? Play your own music? Hang a certain picture? For me, it’s always fresh flowers. Sorry, we only got one shot like this, and Amelia must have been savoring the moment before we unlocked the door! To me, fresh flowers feel welcoming […]

I just wanted to write a little note to let you know that things are looking up! Our letting agent surprised us yesterday by taking us to a partially furnished property that is only available for a very affordable two-month lease. She (rightly) thought that having a place to stay from now until any home […]
Excitement is building at our house! Tomorrow morning we will hop on a train at 5:30 a.m. bound for Munich. Once there, we will greet our first guests– Jeff’s mom and dad– and bring them back to our place. It will be so fun to introduce them to our life here in Germany. The last […]
The snow just keeps falling out there, and the piles are growing. I did spend quite a bit of time outside today, and it wasn’t too cold– in the low 30’s. Although we don’t have our tree yet, I’ve been doing my best to make our home a nice place to be, now that […]
So, our main piece of furniture finally arrived, and now our kitchen is more or less complete. This is very exciting, since I spend so much time in here and it’s important to me that my creative space is cheerful and inspiring. I sure wish that I could have you over for a cup of […]
