About Me

Hi! Nice to meet you. My name is Julia.

I'm a wife and a cat mom. I have a serious passion for sewing, creating all kinds of things and decorating. I love to hunt for vintage treasures, rusty junk and nature elements to use in my creations.

I started blogging in 2009 to share my artwork, decorations and flea market finds. From the beginning on, I’ve written my blog in English even though I’m German, because I wanted to get in contact with bloggers from all around the world.

Creating is not just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle for me. I’d be very unhappy if I couldn’t realize the ideas (or at least some of them) that come to my mind. I’m rarely uninspired. It happens more often that I find it difficult to decide, which of all the projects on my “like-to-do” list to start next.

We currently reside in Albania. This can be challenging but we try to make the best out of it. Some of my favorite creations would most likely not exist, if we hadn't moved here.

I love animals in general but I'm particularly fond of cats and wouldn't want to live without at least one. These are our three furry babies Barney, Cecily and Izzie.

Some random things about me:

I like to read thrillers and humorous books, preferably from American, British or Scandinavian writers. No love stories, fantasy, fairy tales or SF for me, please.

My all time favorite sitcom is "Seinfeld".

If I could wish for 3 abilities without having to learn them, I'd choose playing the piano, understanding/writing HTML and kite surfing.

I love spicy Asian and Mexican food.

If you ask me something before I had my first morning coffee, you might not get an answer. Since I get up very early, mostly between 5 and 6 am, this had happened only to my dear hubby so far :).

I have a thing for hats and caps and rarely leave the house without a headpiece.

I hope you enjoy my blog. Thank you for visiting!
