Spray painted storage benches

You will maybe remember that I already mentioned my plan of spray painting my shabby storage benches in one of my previous "planning-posts".
Today I am really proud to show you the outcome. 
I have now two proper yellow boxes as little side tables in front of the small couch in my little private room.

Vielleicht erinnert sich noch jemand daran, daß ich mal geplant hatte, zwei alte Sitzwürfel ein bißchen aufzumotzen und mit Farbe zu verschönern. Ich hatte das in einem meiner vorherigen Posts erwähnt und präsentiere hier nun das Ergebnis.
 Und ich freue mich wirklich sehr darüber, daß ich jetzt zwei kleine, ordentliche Beistelltische für meine kleine Couch in meinem kleinen, privaten Zimmer habe.

Enjoy the weekend!
Ich wünsche ein schönes Wochenende!

Bis bald!
See you soon!

Mediterranean Inspiration - SOC week 6

With the last Summer of Color prompt, SAGE & SEPIA, I'm back from my break. Although my to-do-lists aren't finally done, but fortunately the dentist appointments, I didn't want to miss Kristin's last color party of this summer as it was so much fun to attend, to be creative with these special color prompts and to find so many beautiful and creative blogs.
This week and due to the lovely, hot summer weather we have currently in Germany, I was inspired of mediterranean tile pattern and did this little mediterranean-tile-exercise in sage and sepia for SOC.
I will also link it to Alexandra's Sunday Sketches.

Zur letzten "Summer of Color" Woche mit den Farben "Sage und Sepia" melde ich mich hiermit zurück von meiner Blogpause. Meine langen To-do-Listen sind zwar noch nicht zu hundert Prozent abgehakt aber glücklicherweise sind die Zahnarzttermine erledigt und ich wollte Kristin's letzte Farben-Party diese Woche nicht verpassen. 
Es war sehr lustig, die letzten sechs Wochen bei dieser Kreativ-Party mitzumachen und mit diesen speziellen Farbenkombis kreativ zu sein und dabei noch so viele andere schöne Kreativ-Blogs zu finden.
Im Hinblick auf das schöne, warme "mediterrane Wetter" das wir hier grade in Deutschland haben, war ich übrigens von Mediterranen Fliesenmustern auf einmal total inspiriert und mußte das unbedingt ausprobieren.
Ich werde damit auch an Alexandra's Sunday Sketches teilnehmen.


I'm looking forward to Kristin's next year's color party.
See you soon!
Ich freue mich schon auf Kristin's Farben-Party nächstes Jahr!
Bis bald!

Top 7 - Week 28

I need a little break due to a few appointments I have with my dentist, with the weeds in my garden, with the washing machine and with a lot of other points I have on my to-do-list since weeks ...
By the way, I have really spray painted my old shabby storage benches as already mentioned in my previous Top 7‘s … BUT … there is always a „BUT“ isn‘t it?
… well they look great, … but they do not match with the entire room the way I expected them to look like … so I bought a different color today and will try it a second time ... I will show you the details in one of my next posts.
... this beautiful view I have currently during lunchtime on the patio of our canteenisn‘t that lovely???  
 Sometimes I love my day job
I saw them in our local garden centre and couldn't resist to take a picture ...

I feel a bit dizzy currently as so many thoughts and ideas are going round and round and round in my head ... I am sure, some of you will know this ...

... and one of these thoughts is for example the idea to paint all these lovely old houses near my home town ... I'm really dreaming of that ...

... therefore I will also spend some time crocheting for the sorting of my thoughts.

 See you soon after my break!

Dreaming sheeps - SOC week 4

I was dreaming all week ... dreaming of this weeks SOC color combination Charcoal Grey & Pale Pink ... therefore my progress of painting was a bit slow since I was more dreaming than painting and now I am afraid that this picture isn't really finished yet ... something is still missing but I don't know what so I still have to dream and to paint a bit more ... 
I will link it to the Sunday Sketches too.

Have a nice and enjoyable weekend!
See you soon!

A flavour of summer

Just the smell of summer
can make me fall in love

 Recently I took a nice stroll through the market ... but I can't find any words to describe this experience worthily ...

... however ... it definitely combines all highlights and tops of the week ...
