Duly arrived in Berlin. It’s dark, cold and wet. Went out in search of burgers and found these wet roses in the dark and damp street.
✨Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. ✨ Helen Keller
This was one of our favorite adventure hikes last year with my cousin, @julieahotz
who has hiked the entire Pacific Crest Trail. She was the best nature guide we could have had! Dreaming of more adventures in the near future. ✨
We were outside the whole weekend so I just finished this up yesterday. Just trying to enjoy the weather while it lasts 💁🏻♀️🍁
I found this print while I was digging around a shop in a nearby town. The frame was chewed up and had completely fallen apart (not quite sure where the nails went). The guy at the counter looked at me like I was completely out of my gourd, hesitated, and then said “...Are you uh...sure? you want to buy this?” I nodded and told him it was my new project and he continued to look extremely skeptical, but I’m pretty used to that by now.
Anyway, I took this little guy home and worked on lifting some of the years off its face. It still has a layer of patina and you can see around the edges the original print hues, but I wiped it until the towel came up clean. Somebody had beautiful cursive handwriting, but I can barely read it, the back has the place and date (February 20, 1961) written in German. I cleaned and painted the frame and put it back together with some copper finishing nails and then laid some type over the top, despite having drank too much iced coffee and having the shakiest hands ever (1/10, do not recommend).
Carry the light with you
wherever you go &
the darkness will never
know your name✨
Too early to post #throwback
summer photos? Wishing I still had that Portugal tan and that it was warm already 🙈☀️🍦#longlivesummer
How great is a view of a harvested field, pass the garden, the meadow, and the goldfield pasture. Afar, I can see the cereals matting the grass, laying solely to capture the warmth of that morning lantern. The wooden cars are filled with crops and pumpkins, slowly heading for the local town market. They sizzle at every road bump and make a spectacle far more interesting, for all that matter. And there they go, beeline. With the canes and the corn, the sunflowers, and the squash, followed by a group of farmers that happily whistle childhood songs and poems combined. .

✨What’s not to love about Tuesday? ✨Thanks for sharing this little scooter @kaylamarquet.fit
It’s been foggy every morning for a week now and I’m starting to feel like I live in Sleepy Hollow. Halloween is about a week away and this spooky weather sets the mood. ☁️
Meet the Warm & Cozy...
This here is my new favorite. It's like the ultimate mug spoon!
I've occasionally dabbled in giving my spoons a bit more personality with some wood burning, a natural stain, or even a little copper bling but mostly I feel hesitant, fearful I might ruin them with a mistake. But this little spoon makes me think I should throw caution to the wind. The more I look at it, the more I love it! It's like a humbly understated comfort, and kinda reminds me of an old, wool Pendleton blanket that's hauled out at camp fires. It just exudes warmth to me...
So, if you need a friend for a season of winter drinks, I got you! The Warm & Cozy is now available online in my shop. Grab it while you can and enjoy the #hyyge
What do you mean you just purchased 82 lbs of pumpkin, when I thought I was your one and only? 👶🏻

Просили рецепт сирної запіканки без борошна, то будь ласка, кохані, ловіть, зберігайте і готуйте на здоров`я💛

500 г кисломолочного сиру
7 ст. л. цукру
2 ст. л. сметани (20 %) (я беру грецький йогурт)

ваніль або ванілін
ізюм, курага, будь-які сухофрукти і горіхи
п р и г о т у в а н н я:
Відокремлюємо жовтки від білків. У мисці необхідно збити сир з цукром, жовтками, крохмалем, сметаною (йогуртом) і ваніліном.
Окремо збиваємо білки.
Сирну суміш перемішуємо зі збитими білками.
Якщо ти вирішив додати сухофрукти чи горіхи, роби це зараз.
Застели деко пергаментним папером, змасти її маслом і викладай сирну масу.
Постав у духовку на 30-40 хвилин при температурі 180-200 градусів. .
Також цей рецепт добре підходить для готування в мультиварці (в мене Moulinex cook4me, то готую на режимі бісквіт). .

Where are my holiday cheermeisters?!🎄It’s that time for our annual oil make & take event- the biggest one of the year! We always have SO much fun, and it’s a perfect way to make some nice gifts for the holidays. Spots are filling up fast, so make sure to claim your spot with me! Grab a friend & come enjoy some wine and treats with us - we’re a pretty fun group 😉
As I walked into therapy today, journal & oils in hand, I had to fight the haze in my mind. It’s a haze that sets in with depression, & something I really don’t want to welcome back again. Or right now, if it can be.
The LORD has walked me into many deserts, some walks longer than others, some deserts more barren than others. I’m not in a desert now, more of a valley. In these low places though, He speaks comfort to me here.
I used to run to alcohol or sex or music or binge eating then puking or friends or working out or.. anything else but the LORD when I was broken. I never knew that while I was running for those things, the Hound of Heaven was patiently pacing towards me. He knew exactly when I’d meet Him, the pace at which He would walk, & the number of times of which I would run. He graciously, patiently, sovereignly pursued me, anyway.
The things He took from me, were not to hurt me. The things that hurt me, He did not take from me. He allowed everything in my life so that I may know Him. I used to search for comforts in all sorts of things, & forever run up empty. Lovers leave. Bank accounts deplete. Bottles dry.
I eventually ran into the hole where He’d meet me. The pit where I’d die.
It is there that He Found me though &, in His arms, true comfort I would meet.
We think God cruel, for allowing us hurt. What does He owe us? What do we deserve?
We run from Him & He loves us still. When no one else forgives us, He will. When we tire from the running, when we’re bitter from the fight, His pursuit doesn’t waver, His steps are not light. Those that hear Him coming, they fear that they will die. Surely, we do. So He raises us to life. 🖤
Here lies Sarah, 6 weeks postpartum, still in her maternity jeans.
drew my attention to a poem by @holliepoetry
(see my stories) beautiful and raw it depicts the transformation the female body goes through during pregnancy and beyond. It came at a great time as this morning I weighed myself and tried on a few pairs of size 12s... no joy. (I didn’t even bother with my size 10s)
AND THATS OK! I’ll get into them again. The droop in my belly when I sit isn’t something to be ashamed of. The ache from heavy feeding boobs isn’t something to despise. The wobble I feel when I run downstairs to a toddler shouting my name isn’t going to ruin my day.
I grew humans, two of them and they love my ‘comfy bits’ you should love yours too. #honestparenting
Anyone else who can’t stop buying coats or is it just me? 🙊🍁 Tagged this one over on 21 buttons - link in profile
Do you ever go thrifting for home decor? I've always gone for clothes (most of my favorite sweaters are thrifted!) but I don't always think to stop and check out the home items. Over on my YouTube channel I shared how I decorated for fall with a bunch of great thrift store finds. Have a watch before my next video goes up this Thursday. Let me know which item you would have been most excited to find! 💛🌾#linkinbio #creativitywithkatie
