Le Inspiration...



I went to the Christmas market on Karlsplatz... They always have wonderful art and handicraft things there. Not quite cheap, but it's wonderful to stroll around and get some inspiration. I found this little market stand selling paper artwork.

Really beautiful things there. A lot of it made with Origami paper and prints of actresses - the likes of Audrey Hephurn, Romy Schneider and Marilyn Monroe. Or Maria Callas, as you can see on the photo. (Great choices by the way, I love all of them!) They were adorable. But 160 Euros for an A4-size image? Really? I know the technique they are using because I do that every year for the cookie boxes I give away as Christmas gifts (filled with home-made cookies, of course!). I do know that Origami paper (the real one) is not cheap either and that you have to charge for the working hours as well... but really?! That's slightly overprized. Besides, tell me who's going on a Christmas market with 200 Euros in his/her pocket?! Well... maybe I'm gonna try myself on one of these...

So... do you have any plans for handicraft for Christmas?

Have a Laugh!

Sweets for my Sweet...


Tom Hiddleston eats chocolate before an interview... How cute! And it's Mozartkugeln, of course... They get everyone (and make up for going through the same stupid questions in very bad English again and again...). ^_^

Feeling of the Day...

[ via tanzdreamer ]

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; 
for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; 
we must die to one life before we can enter another.  
- Anatole France 

 

On the Big Screen...



Not sure if this one will ever make it to the movies here but I'm definitely gonna see it. Always loved Rachel Weisz and I have developed a fairly new passion for Brit actor Tom Hiddleston... And my kind of movie anyway.

Love at First Sight...

OMG! These look fantastic. Just a shame that Кофе Хауз did not sell those when I was there (and I was there every single day for the whole 4 weeks of my stay in Russia!). I feel tempted to try them myself... But maybe I'll wait until after Christmas because I've got all these cool Christmas and winter decoration stuff for cupcakes already... (Thanks Etsy)
