When I'm in Brisbane I always make sure to visit @vieillebranche and the magical garden that @planewoodframe & @botanickbrisbane created. I'm feeling a bit under the weather at the moment so I thought dreaming about my favourite place in Brisbane is the perfect distraction. Have a sweet Friday everyone!

Sunday is for baking & since it’s been raining for two days even more so. We got some rhubarb at a roadside stall yesterday, so there is no excuse not to bake Emma’s @mydarlinglemonthyme super delicious flourless rhubarb & rosemary cake.
Ps It was so delicious Emma!!! (See my stories)
Pps Thanks so much for your super sweet comments on my last post. You guys are just amazing!!! Have a lovely Sunday everyone! .

I just wanted to say thank you to all the wonderful people who still stick with me, since I completely changed up my feed and it does look nothing like it used to. And we all know how these things affect our instagame. (Well, that’s an entire different story for another day) So I decided to post more of the work I have done recently and moments in between even when they are a bit different to the usual stuff.
This here is another out take from the project @stephanotice & I did for @drlibby earlier this year. Possibly my favourite out take ever. Steph styled this little arrangement in a matter of minutes. So so amazing Steph!!! Happy midweek everyone. .

There might be just a few more days left to grab yourself a @peppermintmagazine before the next issue is out. I loved this one especially because it had a story of the wonderful & inspiring people from @outlanddenim in it, who also live on our mountain behind the sea. Plus a cover story about ceramic artist Nicolette Johnson @swsco, who made this mug in the picture, which hardly ever leaves my sight, mostly filled with some sort of hot brewed beverage. Which I’m going to have now. Most definitely in that mug!
Happiest Tuesday everyone. .

It’s no secret that I’m ever so slightly obsessed with @pacificfair shopping centre on the Gold Coast. Believe me, that’s something I did not see coming. I don’t even like shopping centres. But PacFair, as we call it here has sooo much going for it. Every time I go there I find a new corner to photograph. I mean it just looks like the architects impression just in real! And since I have been posting the odd picture over on stories I think it’s ok to share some of my favourites here too. And no, this is not an add.
Sometimes you find inspiration where you least expect it.
Have a great week ahead everyone. .

I never took a picture of #carcorners before but this shiny green beauty was just too tempting. It was casually parked at our local IGA supermarket car park (of all places) on a late sunny afternoon.
Just a bit gorgeous don’t you think @elice_f ?
Have a lovely weekend everyone

When you look at this picture all you see is just another hand holding a gorgeous basket with #kale (obvi) and other fresh greens in front of a grey textured wall, with some sun flares in the corner.
What you can’t see is that on that day, my super talented friend @stephanotice & I had been shooting day two (of three) for a project for @drlibby. I saw this wall & we just had to take one of those shots. It was like: Quick, look at the sun flares! No the hand needs to be higher, otherwise it looks odd, sorry is it too heavy? Just a bit to left...now hold still...just one more...you get the idea!!!! The things we do for hands in the shots hey...Although this one ended up to be a (pretty) outtake after all, but here it is anyway!
Steph, I love working with you! Thanks for putting up with me!
Your styling/illustration/design skills are just so incredibly inspiring! Head over to her stories today & you know what I mean. .

The other day one of my old boarding school friends contacted me because they are having a school reunion. Unfortunately I won’t make it in time to Cologne, Germany but we have been chatting over on WhatsApp which is so cool. So whenever someone asked me what it is like to live here ‘on planet Oz’ I always say that the stress level is the same wherever you are, but the sky here is higher, a deeper blue and the sun shines more often. And that’s something I will never take for granted.

This is a way #latergram when I had the pleasure to stay a day prior @annabellehickson amazing dailyplenty workshop. The beautiful scene here was set up by super stylist @caitlinmelling for the guests, who arrived that afternoon and the amazing @luisabrimble was going to share her knowledge how to capture this beautiful scene.
Although I only stayed 24h hours, it has been such an inspiring experience. I so wish I could have stayed the whole workshop. I’m still dreaming about this scene! Have a dreamy start of the week everyone. .

We had slow weekend with nothing planed except working in the garden and baking. Best weekend in ages. We even managed to have afternoon tea together with the most delicious chocolate cake (see over on stories) I think I might start a new Sunday afternoon tea ritual. And because I did not take many pictures either here are some #moodybotanicals instead.
Have a lovely and hopefully slow Sunday everyone. .

That Friday feeling when the house is clean (for approximately 1 hour till the teenagers come home) and the foraged bushes are still looking lovely after two days in a vase. Can you spot the pink rose in the middle, it’s my second rose out of our garden. So excited. Happy Friday everyone! .

Sometimes a little bit of #shadowplay is all you need and a building like this looks all magical.
I found this beauty behind @bambam_bakehouse and I have been taken a picture of it every time I go there. So here we go. Have a magical day everyone. .

We may or may not have binged watched #strangerthings in two days after it was dropped last Friday. Oops. But how can you flipping not?? I mean the story and pictures are just so amazing & round but the music my friends is something else. I guess that’s why this series hits home so hard for us kids of the 80’. I’m currently digging deep in my record collection, (see previous post for a visual of said collection), while Martin found some cool mixes on Spotify.
I never thought I would enjoy an 80’ revival that much. To be honest, I was never really a huge fan until Stranger Things.
Now excuse me while I will listen to Tangerine Dream ‘Love on a real train’ on repeat.
Oh and happy Halloween for those who celebrate today. .

Lots of things happened lately, like Lulu turned 15 at the beginning of October. I could not be more proud of this gorgeous young human and the things she archived like moving up a grade at the beginning of the year and lots of other big milestones. This is the sneaky portrait I was allowed to take on her actual birthday, with Chewie stealing the show...what’s new. .

So, it has been a while. To be honest, I don’t even know why. We renovated (what’s new?) a fair bit again and then I was pretty busy shooting and editing & before you know it you forget to post something on your actual feed.
So here we go, it’s #jacarandaseason here in South East Queensland and it’s glorious. It’s my beautiful & utterly talented friend Steph’s @stephanotice favourite season. So this one is for you Steph. May the purple glory last for another month at least so we can take a billion pictures before the flowers fall off and get replaced with green leaves. This alone is just magical don’t you think?
Have a magical weekend everyone. .

I often play this game, looking at people and wonder what their life's looks like. When I saw these two sitting on a bench on an early Saturday morning in Tugun on the Gold Coast, I imagined their relationship must be rock solid.
I named them Olive and Brad. Olive has quite an impressive front yard full of flowers & succulents and a cat, that's very old now, who loves sleeping on the old sofa on the front porch.
Brad spends most of his time in his shed, which is filled with tools and screws in any size there is. But Saturday mornings they come here to enjoy the beach together, just long enough till morning tea time, with Olive's ridiculously fluffy scones with jam & cream, which they always have at home. Ops, my imagination went a bit a bit wild here... .

Last week I visited my friend Cindy, who not only lives at the end of this magical driveway in the cutest cottage ever, she also makes the most amazing baskets out of various vines he forages nearby, like in her actual driveway! The vines get soaked to soften and sometimes dyed with organic plant dyes and them woven into the most beautiful baskets and objects!
I have one of her creations on my shelf for my eggs. (And hopefully many more to come).
Cindy & I made a date already to come back and explore a bit more the magic that is behind this beautiful driveway and watch her making some baskets. What do you think?
Have a magical Sunday my friends! .

We have so many talented humans living on our lush mountain behind the sea. This week I was lucky enough to take some more pictures for Emma's @oliveceramics_ shop update and I'm sooo in love with her ceramics! They are truly beautiful and a photographers dream. Not too matte and not too shiny!!! So stay tuned over on Emma's feed when her shop is updated.They literally sell like hot cakes! Happy Friday my friends! .

This is the beautiful office space of my amazing friend Steph @stephanotice, which I was so lucky to photograph for her a few weeks ago. Steph is the most amazing designer/illustrator/stylist/amazing friend ever!!! Her office is at the @metroarts in Brisbane where Steph shares her workspace with two other creatives. Now that Steph moved in this glorious place right in the city, I have found a few excuses to get to Brisbane just to hang here. Not to mention the best company ever Steph!
Steph & I have actually worked on a number of projects together lately, more about this later on a social media platform near you! Happy Tuesday my friends! .

So I decided to give the white boarders a go, to change things up a bit. Not sure if my ocd'ness can handle the 'messy' transition but there are worse things to worry about hey.
I want to share more of what I do with you, which is a bunch of different things. I can't help myself thinking one gets a bit stuck with a theme/edit in a normal feed. So boarders might be the way. (For now) What do you think?
Oh and this is the beautiful peachy door at @theborrowednursery on the Gold Coast. It looks a bit like an endless summer to me! .

Today exactly 21 years ago, I landed at Brisbane airport together with two other DJ's and some Viva TV friends to play at some parties here and record a few (TV) shows as well. (Hello @chris_liebing, I still owe you, suggesting this trip to Anja!!)
We had the most hideous flight connections which seemed like we were flying for ever...well you kinda do, coming from Europe.
Anyways...little did I know, that this trip to down under would change my life forever. I met my now husband Martin on this fine day 21 years ago on said Brisbane airport!! He happened to be our 'tour manager' for our two weeks down under. It was literally love at first sight!!! But that's not all. Martin moved to Germany in November and we planned to get married in August the following year.
And because it must have been an exceptional busy time of the year, the only day we could get married at the town hall in Cologne was the 28th. Exactly a year after we met.
So we also have our 20th wedding anniversary today. Honestly I can't believe it myself.
And because Winter here in Oz has the most amazing crisp light, something that blew me away 21 years ago and still does, here is a picture of the beautiful empty beach in Byron Bay taken a few weeks ago. What are the chances these two are European.
Have a good week everyone! .
