DECORATION // DREAM CATCHER

for last christmas, anouk and i made dream catchers for everyone. i love this concept of making the same present for everyone. and the dream catchers were really nice to make. i researched a little on pinterest before we started, and there are so many ideas! we made really beautiful ones, in white, in black, with a corcheted interieur (selfmade), with lace, or classic ones. of you need help, you will find lots of TUTORIALS how to knot them on the web. for most we used twigs from the woods, which ads to the charm - because it's natural material, and because they are not perfectly round. traditionally, you use willow for the hoop, and decorate it with findings, bits and pieces of everyday life (feathers, beads, ...).

last saturday we dropped of the kids at my parent's and went to a concert from YOKKO. not only the concert was great, but also the location. the HOTEL WETTERHORN on the HASLIBERG has quite a history, being originally a summer residence and now transformed into a modern hotel. it's run by a young team with a focus to fuse nature and culture. we loved it! the event location is located in the underground of the hotel. i really loved the style mix between industrial, wood and chandeliers. very rustic, but cool and stylish. it's not big, but in my opinion that only ads to the charm. unfortunately, we were too late to book the KULTURMENU - it's said that the food is great as well in the WETTERHORN. we will check that out next time.

DIY // EASTER EGGS & NESTS NO2

well, this week didn't turn out the way i had imagined. sick kids tend to turn plans upside down... never mind, i'm doing this post anyway - even though you probably all have dyed your eggs, made your nests, and decorated your house by now. if so, look at it as inspiration for the next year. we love to dye eggs - anouk always wants to handpaint them, and i love to experiment with different, natural dyeing colors. this year we tried turmeric for yellow, and red cabbage for blue. i really hope to be a bit earlier next year to be able to give you a little tutorial on egg dyeing with spices and plants. another thing i wanted to do this easter and had to cancel are the lovely nests made of branches, moss, flowers, and feathers. isn't it simply amazing what nature provides us with for a lovely, nature inspired feast? no need to go into big stores, just go into the woods, and you have everything you need.

here with us, the dandelions are in full bloom. everything is yellow, and each day there are new blooms popping up. and while sitting on the porch one of these days, and drinking tea, and taking all that yellow in, i had a faint memory of jelly made of dandelions, tasting like honey... and i remembered that my mom used to make löwenzahngelee when i was a kid. so i went in search of a recipe, adapted it a little, and started to make my own jelly. and it really does taste a like honey, sweet with a little bitter note. sooooo good!

easter is almost here, can you believe it? we are looking forward to a few days at home, which is just as well. anouk has her spring break from kindergarden, and we are planning to do a few little projects and visits during the next two weeks. but for the easter weekend, we want to go for lazy. and even though our neighbor keeps telling me that we will have snow on easter morning (!), i keep dreaming of a sunny and warm easter sunday in the garden, with spring flowers around us, a picnic brunch, kids searching for eggs and nests, and us drinking champagne and doing just nothing. well, we will see... but a dream is a dream, and dreaming of something always is a good start to make it come true.
