I love this  dress and photo from Toast's Fall/Winter collection.

Such a beautiful model,  and the photographer set a perfect mood here by choosing this particular location.

House Project: Fall Planting...

Goodness... Who says gardening is good for you?!?!

Today is definitely one of the days I feel a hundred years old... We finally got round to buying the plants and the tree for the front yard - fall being the "perfect" plant time and all (so we've been told). It was hard work, let me tell you this! All the digging, watering, shovelling of dirt....

Anyway... looking at the end results we're really happy about it.

If you'll excuse me now... I need a hot bath (as long as the old bones are still functioning... I don't dare thinking about how sore my poor muscles will feel tomorrow *sigh*)

Tomato Soup with red Pepper, fried Olives and Balsamico

What we had for dinner....

Tomato Soup with red Pepper, fried Olives and Balsamico.

Tried  this simple but tasty soup during our vacation the other day. It was so good, I just had to add it to my list of favorite soups :)

Goodbye Summer!

While I hate to say goodbye to summer, there are also a couple of things I‘m looking forward to with the beginning of the fall season.

Creative Week - Day 02: Chanterelle Soup

Well... since I consider cooking also a "creative process", 
here's the project for Day 02 of my creative week :)

What we had for dinner tonight...

...this, together with a basket of chanterelles 
will turn into a delicous soup :) ...

Creative Week - Day 01! - Motive for Canvas Print

I've wanted to do this for ages, pick one of our travel photos and have it printed on canvas (to go above the couch in our living room).

Today I finally got round to it. I chose the motive and after some Photoshop adjustments sent it off to the printing service. Can't wait to see how it'll turn out (It's really huge,  160 x 120 cm :)

Here's the motive.
