queen of colors


Just like anticipated, we are drowing within our lists and errands over here. In a good and exciting way though, but still the days are always way too short. We have slowly started the process of relocating, while I also got a new corsett, had a birthday to celebrate (we did it bad, this time!) and started teaching English to elderly migrants. Besides the usual painting and creating, of course. And while the husband is working for a lot of new customers. Great stuff is  going on for him as well. You can image the Fishbowl is buzzing at the moment.

To give you a little sneak peek, where we are headed to by the end of April, this is the little estate we will be moving in. Not alone, there are other tenants as well, as the place is huge. We will live in an amazing ground floor appartement with a big terrace, wooden fire and an enormous kitchen. The shot of the two windows, by the way, will host my new studio. Things are looking a bit rough still, but the place has the most perfect bones and atmosphere, and we are both utterly excited to create our own little heaven over there.

I wish you a good start into this week and hopefully, a lot amazing Spring weather.

still around


Oh boy, dropping a bomb (even when it is a pretty one) and then disappearing for a month, not exactly a nice thing to do. Especially, when you get all those lovely responses and warm wishes upon the changes to come. You know, it wasn't my intention to duck and dive, and I really have missed this place, but we are a simply having a killer schedule at the Fishbowl right now.

First of all, there is everything around our relocation in April; preparations, sorting out things, organizing a new tenant for our beloved home or simple but time consuming things, like asking your friends for moving boxes. Then, we had a good dose of last time events, like a wonderful last Speak Easy Club last weekend. They say, that things are best, when you are about to part. I don't know about that and we are not exactly parting, as the new home will be close enough to still host studio dinners. But I have to say, that Saturday night has honestly been one of the most amazing nights ever. Thanks to the crowd, that made it a truly memorable one.

On another note, I am in the middle of getting a pair of new legs. Or better a new corsett. And like last year's wheelchair odysee, some of you might remember quite a few posts on how tricky it was to finally have the new ride around. Quite frankly, this corsett thing is not going any more smoothly. I am not a newbie to these procedures, but my patience and tolerance levels have simply dropped over the years. This will be probably a complete post soon, as today is Saturday and rather a day for dancing let me just say, I am sick and tired of the arrogant and patronizing attitude, you'll constantly find throughout medical staff, government authorities or, like in this case, orthopaedic technicians, when it comes to, well actually, their clients.

You see, there is a lot going on. On top of the usual routines like painting, creating and living, of course. It doesn't look like, that the upcoming weeks will be any different. Therefor I will stick to the non regular posts and promise to come around as often as I can, to fill you in and to say "Hi".

Have a wonderful Saturday night, lovelies. I will start packing up my books and the first part of the studio tonight.
