Summer at last! For us, there's nothing better than a picnic in a secluded spot. The picnic basket includes local delicacies: whitefish tartare in a pickling jar, sandwiches wrapped in beeswax paper, homemade iced tea without sugar in a flip-top bottle, and air-dried apple rings in a cloth sack.
Take four smoked whitefish fillets from Grimm Fishmongers in Lüscherz. Dice a green onion. Cut 200–300 g of cherry tomatoes into quarters. Take a pot of sour “Halbrahm” (light cream), freshly chopped herbs (to taste), salt, pepper and a pinch of curry powder, stir them together and mix with the fish, onion and cherry tomatoes. Pour into a jar and keep cool while carrying it to your destination.
All about flowers
Is there anything more beautiful than a bouquet of flowers featuring the colorful mix found in nature? We don't think so. And we love putting these blooms on our blouses, tops, and dresses. And now, you can put them on your smartphone, tablet, and desktop, too. Here are the flowers as wallpapers.
Stripes are one of the real classics of fashion history. Every generation has had its version of the classic striped shirt. Blue and white stripes were the official uniform of the French Navy in the 18th century. And they have remained popular to this day, because stripes in all their variations are never out of season. Whether lengthwise, vertical, or diagonal stripes, classic sailor stripes in blue and white or smart with red, pink, or all sorts of other colors: stripes are always up-to-date, always stylish, always beautiful. Further proof of a never-ending love for stripes which we share, too.
Spruce up little everyday moments as the mood takes you – it's especially fun at the moment. Here's our DIY Easter idea – simple, handmade, stylish.
Easter gift in the shape of a rabbit
You need: a paper bag, cotton wool, scissors, craft glue, gift ribbon, tag
1. Draw a slightly rounded V on the paper bag up to approximately halfway.
2. If the shape is ok, cut out the V.
3. Fill the paper bag with small gifts and tie it to the rabbit's ears with a ribbon.
4. Attach a piece of cotton wool for the fluffy tail.
5. Write Easter greetings on a tag. And your sweet Easter packaging is ready!
Tip: If you like things to be colourful, just use patterned paper bags and tie a more eye-catching bow to the rabbit.
