Circle through the city of Zurich – 8th-9th May


(Pictures show Lyn Lingerie, Chez Lesunja, Goldsmith)

As announced earlier; it’s time again for ‘Kreislauf 4+5‘ from 8th to 9th May. Kreislauf is a word creation that alludes to the districts called ‘Kreis’ but also means circle and the other word ‘Lauf’ meaning to run in German or walking in Swiss German.

It’s about getting to know our creative neighborhood in design and fashion and for which these districts are know for. Besides being the districts for clubbing and formerly infamous red light district (and still at some places).

I liked the open-minded and relaxed atmosphere last time. Actually, I discovered it by accident with a friend. But this year it’s highlighted in my agenda! Meet me there, if you fancy joining me with my bicycle.

Another great tipp I’ve spotted on Design Squish: DIY: BIRD CAGE LAMP

It’s ‘se frönch’ touch that I love, please also notice the small hand mirrors at the wall! Made me look immediately for a second hand cage, until I reminded myself that I should also think of a place where to hang it…

Here are some second hand cages that I found on Ricardo:

RECYCLED SHIPPING PALLET FURNITURE

I remember that I had a similar idea for bed slats when I was much younger… I like the simple but tidy look of it. The ones I had once at hand were made of a cheaper wood and the wood itself needed some serious sanding first.

My cushion would be made with one of shabby chick fabrics, a little bit pink, blue, yellow and green maybe with dots or roses – playful and light.


Hoppy Easter! Dyeing eggs naturally

I bought some antique chocolate moulds, and here is one of them. It looks like as if the rabbit is grinning, but it’s actually a reflection.

I’ve added two more pictures of my Easter decoration – hope you like it.

I have blowed out the eggs myself… it took my aaaages. But the colouring of the light brown (with dried nutshells) and the pink (with dried bugs) went successfully. I also tried to colour some more eggs in blue with red cabbage, I didn’t succeed at all. They look kind of pale blue or greyish. Anyway, the colour does not look appealing at all and I will have a second run.

Ah and ps: don’t add any vinegar to red cabbage. No matter how little the vinegar is, the cabbage turns immediately whitish. I thought that with a little of vinegar the chalk egg-shell would absorb the colour better…

IInd Aahh: Store the dried nutshells airtight! Mine hosted formerly some flour moths… yuk! Positive: I know now where they survived, whereas I stored all food stock airtight…
