Hej my dear friends, I have some news for you! I’ve opened my new Etsy shop yesterday. It’s called: TemporaryPlaces. Right now you can only buy two enamel mugs on there, but I’m planning some exciting new things right now. Maybe you know this, but I love enamel cups! They’re so retro and cute and it looks so so good to drink my tea out of one of them. I also use one cup for a pencil holder on my desk and one for the water I use while painting. You see – there are lots of possibilities.
Keep you eyes out for some updates within the next weeks, there are going to be some special Friends/Gilmore Girls/Sherlock/Fantastic Beasts/ACOMAF inspired goodies. And let me know, if you’d like to have custom made cups for you. I’d love to do that. I’m also thinking about doing notebooks, bookmarks, enamel pins and posters. Please, let me know what you think about it. I’d love to hear from you!
I love adventure. I love being on the road, heading somewhere. But sometimes I just want to stay at home, in my warm bed, not surrounded by anyone. At times like these I love to read about other peoples adventures. Here are some of my favourites (in no particular order):
I fell in love with the stories of Sara and Oscar. They write so heartwarming and utterly wonderful. Also, Iceland is one of my favourite countries. Favourite posts: What’s in our van drawers//Chocolate and mud
I’ve read his book last year and fell in love with the story. He, his wife, his young daughter and their huskies went to live in the wilderness of Canada. They built a cabin together and lived completely off the land. Only snow, animals and three humans. Oh, how I long for that.
Rüdiger Nehberg is a human right activist and survival expert. But he’s not only a common survival expert, no he is Sir Vival! He’s done a great deal of things, like crossing the Atlantic Ocean with a fir-tree and another time with a pedal boat, or surviving in the Brazilian jungle without equipment or food. Nehberg also wrote some books about his experiences, his journeys and about survival. I have a few of them at home (and also met him). A funny old man, who cares a lot about the environment, the Yanomami-tribe and female genital mutilation.
Reinhold Messner climbs. He always did. I didn’t think I would enjoy reading about someone climbing, but that book swept me away. There will never be another Reinhold Messner. He has conquered the Earth, often by himself, and lives to talk about it.
