What a busy, beautiful winter weekend we had. There was no baking though, no Sonntagssüß. Instead I am joining Amanda for some Weekending. We spend most of it outside in the cold. Both my men were standing (sitting) on frozen ice for the first time in their lives!

The "lake" we went to is in a park in Cologne, called Blücherpark. One of my very favourite spots, especially in Summer when there are concerts, public viewing soccer and weekend picnics. But no need to miss summer this weekend!

And then there was lots of crafting going on inside. I finished my socks, I did some driftwood painting and made a valentines bracelet for my man. (I know it looks like an old ladys golden bracelet, but wait till you see him wearing it...) There is a great tutorial on purlbee if you forgot the "how to" from girly days ;-)


  1. Wow you are quite the versatile artist! Your painting is beautiful. I used to do the same thing on big pieces of fungus I'd find growing on trees in the woods at my parents cottage. Congrats on finishing your socks- they look awesome!

  2. I love the Matryoshka painting. Such lively colors. Is that painted on a piece of wood? And your little boy looks like he enjoyed the snow.
