Monday Love: Art meets fashion

A new friend is like a new color in your world

A little while ago i had my first meeting with another blogger: radiant Barbara, from fashion, art and other fancies. As luck would have it, she sometimes comes for business to Mainz, a town near where i live. And so we spent some time together: vintage shopping, lunch and strolling through the old streets, discovering new shops. We had an instant connection and it felt like meeting an old friend! She's an art consultant, a fashion-lover, a gourmet and most of all, a fun and interesting person - we had so much to talk about. A prove to me, that the friends we make here in blogland, are more than "cyber" - somehow, we really do catch glimpses of each other and get to know each other in a certain way.
Cheers to blogfriends - and by that, i mean, all of you!

The bracelet in the second picture is something i bought for a friend as a cheer up present. It was made bei Marzipan, a company by South african women find out more about it here.

P.S.: I was delighted to see, that Barbara, who went to fashion week in Paris, was photographed by some great street-bloggers - see more of her here.

    Oh dear one, I hope this comment finds you relaxed and headache-free! Oh what a week. BUT TODAY and TOMORROW, I have OFF!!!!!!!!!!! I am so thrilled. I will be doing some research to see how to price my drawings, and then in the next week, I am going to open my Etsy shop. Let's see how it goes.....

    Dear one, I wish you calm and joy. I want to create for the next four days because the more and more I create, and the more and more I am not ABLE TO because of work, I realize how much art and writing is so important for many of us that connect through self-expression. May your painting sessions give you joy.
