Mayday, mayday, TO is about to have a panic attack again while trying to organize summer vacation for the coming months. To calm myself down I had my first attempt at baking with apple flour (pictured below), which was a great success, especially compared to speaking to owners of Italian villas. I will definitely try that again.
And, since is spring even in Austria, I am working on propagating succulents...
...and experimenting with monster slime. Just because corn starch can be fascinating.
If you are following my bright example, by now you should be ready for a nap. And here is where this month's project comes in handy. Enjoy!
Yes! April! The time when we see the cousins (entre ellas prima V), and celebrate, well, Easter. So while I meant to write about my first-time experience in making baklava, and my sorry attempts to re-grow salad (pictured above), I decided to dedicate this post to Easter bunnies instead.
Actually, the project for April does not involve real rabbits, nor eggs or chocolate. It's a dress. :)
The other day I and G inspired me with a great idea for an alternative to cling wrap. And then I thought: I could make that at home! And there it is, an easy project that cuts back on your plastic waste. How cool is that! Hope you find it useful, and while you're melting your wax, I'll go melt some chocolate. Because: churros. I mean, it's the weekend. :)
February again! It's still winter, so you can go skiing, or ice-skating, but it's also ball season, and Trifon Zarezan, and Valentine's day, and Fasching, and the birds are singing... So many options it's almost confusing. And while I have been exploring the slopes and the spas and new dancing shoes and old macaron recipes, I still have a peaceful idea or two to share with you. Like those cool keepsakes (clearly made a month ago):
or this post-birthday use of balloons for Fasching decoration:
I'm off, making kids' Valentines on behalf. See you soon!
But since I am not entirely sure how you celebrate the year of the rooster, I am offering you some alternative ideas: Hello Kitty party, anyone?
To G and B (kisses, G and B!), but also, HAPPY SECOND BIRTHDAY to my blog! I have been quite busy those two years, and this holiday season is not an exception. A lot of ideas for you, too, for when the weather gets too cold and the kids too crazy. We made a Rudolf:
and the ususal gingerbread houses:
and S's secret fruit cake recipe (no link, it's still a secret):
and a lot, a lot of cute decorative Christmas trees:
So have fun, and stay tuned for the next two (at least) years of To-blogging. Cause I'm never tired of getting inspired.
What stars are made of...
Feel like a star! And I leave you at that. Happy stargazing!
