Last bits of summer.

I had a delicious, sun filled week off. We managed to cross a few things off our meter long to-do list, but there was also enough relax time in the sun to make it feel like a real holiday. So here´s what we did in pictures: Collected walnuts and the last of this year´s apples, planted a huge berry field (so excited about this!) and dug up several pieces of an old iron fence. I plan to use it somehow, somewhere in our garden.

I know some of you will be sad about this, but our old kitchen stove is now finally gone. It has been deconstructed very carefully and will be re-built in the house of one of our neighbours. Frankly, I´m glad it´s gone - it was just a dust trap (complete with an old rat´s nest inside. Yikes). However, I salvaged the pretty blue tiles and will use them in our new kitchen (once we can afford a new kitchen, that is).

Watched the birds gathering to fly south. I love the noise they´re making. And I can´t wait to see them coming back next spring.

Last but not least: We now have a proper step to our entry door, and a gravel path leading to our house. Here´s a before. We built the step with field stones and I think it turned out pretty well.

Happy October!

Ich finde nicht die richtigen Worte, die ausdrücken könnten, WIE bezaubernd und bewundernswert ich finde, was Du/Ihr aus dem Haus mach(s)t. Immer wieder eine Reise in eine andere (Wohn)-Welt. Danke dafür!

It's been a while since I visited and I see you've been busy! Those tiles really are lovely.
