My life in fake polaroid pictures: We are moving! :)

Hello, happy Sunday! :) Did you have a nice weekend? I had a few busy days, so much to do! :) I ordered some Vintage dresses and shortened them, I worked a lot (as you can see, at the fabric store where I'm working we made tons of pins and buttons for the upcoming Christmas season :)) and I prepared some things for the new apartment.

I also sewed some pretty fabric bags which I'm using as gift bags for the people who are coming here to help us and are even accepting a long journey to come here. <3 On Friday, Mogli and I had a loveley afternoon in the wood and afterwards, we snuggled a bit. :) On the right photo you can see some of the smaller items of furniture which I've bought and painted and the beautiful kitchen textiles I've sewn; an apron, oven gloves, potholders, dish towels and a pretty bunting (can't wait to hang it up in the new kitchen... :)).

On Friday evening Flo and I had a mediterranean omelette for dinner. On Saturday, the handing over of our new apartment finally took place and here you can see my beautiful new room and our kitchen with the old paint (I painted it white yesterday). I'm so much in love with this new home and although I'm awfully tired while I'm writing this post, I enjoyed the last two days which I've spent with cleaning, painting and rearranging things. One of the best things is that my mother is here to help us! :))

Awwwww, this is our first photo in the new apartment, I love it! :) How do you like my new kitchen cupboard? I bought it from a furniture restorer, it's from the 1950s and it was a real bargain!! :) This evening I've been painting it white, can't wait to share photos. Finally, we improvised our first dinner in the new apartment, fresh and healthy.
Ok, it's time for bed now, I'm sooooo tired and I think I'll fall asleep immediately! :)
Wish you all a good night,
thanks for reading! :)


  1. Love the cupboard Lu :) and the new apartment looks so nice and bright. Can't wait to see it decorated with your style. Congratulation on the new place. Have a nice week :)

  2. Eure neue Wohnung sieht toll aus! Viel Spaß beim Einrichten, Dekorieren etc. ! :-)
    Die Küchenutensilien, die du aus dem süßen Apfelstoff genäht hast, gefallen mir auch sehr :-) Ich möcht mir auch so einen Ofenhandschuh nähen - hast du dafür eigentlich eine spezielle feuerfeste Wattierung verwendet oder ganz normale?
    LG Steffi

  3. Thanks, Heidi! :)

    Danke auch, liebe Steffi! :) Nein, ich habe keine feuerfeste Wattierung genommen, sondern nur ganz normales Thermolarm. Nutze die Handschuhe nur, um kurz nen Kuchen oder so rauszuholen und da reicht es mir, wenn die ein bißchen Wärme abfangen. :) Wenn alles fertig ist gibts auch nochmal Fotos in Groß. :)
    Liebe Grüße :)

  4. Luischen, die Fotos sehen ja schon super aus. Wie schade, dass ich nicht dabei sein kann...aber spätestens allerspätestens Silvester darf ich mir euer schönes neues Zuhause auch anschauen *freu* :-*

  5. ich MUSS es mir ganz bald angucken!!!

  6. Ja, ihr 2, ich bin auch ganz hin und weg und Jenny, für Dich gibt es bald mehr Bilder und Anja, Du kannst jeder Zeit kommen. <3


I'm always happy about feedback and about getting to know your opinion! :) Thank you!
