*acacia green*

the *inspiration*...well....
I found it in the middle of the *desert*...
I watched the colour and structure of *acacia* trees....in the morning, during the day....
and in the evening...I smelled the *perfume* of acacia wood fire....oh., I love it! If I could put this smell in a bottle...I would use it every day for sure! :-)
well...and this is the *inspiration* result :-)
the mysterious colour of the iridescent silk contains all the colours I watched somewhere in the middle of the sahara desert....*magic*
find the *acacia green* dress now in my online-shop!

*because.......*

sometimes the life is not like we imagined, like we dreamed and expected before.....
when doors are closing in front of us there will be always other open doors to find, new ways to go, people to meet and friends to find.....because the life is *precious*....because there is a little *lemon* cake with a single candle on it....a gift my *sweet* and dearest friend Eva gave me this morning...because she is truly THE greatest!!.....because she know that I love to eat lemon cake....because the entire!!! sadness is gone forever...because there is my greatest!! and beloved family.....because there are the closest and dearest friends....because the feeling to be exactly in the middle of the 30s is just with one word *great*....because today is my birthday :-)

what a bliss!

*the loveletter*

do you write loveletters and when did you wrote the last one?
this year started for me with plenty of time...*desert* time.....
one day I found myself on a 400m high dune...
the light turned from bright, clear sunlight, light cobalt blue sky and golden coloured sand into the most wonderful palette of  *pink* shades...

I listened the silence, the sound of the dunes, the endless wind....I watched the sand dancing....
and I wrote a *loveletter*....for my love, for the desert....
endless love...eternal love...
then I left....wrapped in soft *pink* light, wrapped in bright *grapefruit* pink fabric, wrapped by the *love* of the desert...a *smile* on my face...the endless feeling of freedom and peace in my *pink* heart :-)

what a bliss!
