Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter 🐣🐰 to you!! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Spring is finally here in Seattle, my most favorite season! This is definitely the magic time makes you want to stay outside as much as possible and put in non-working mood a bit ☺️ But I have excuse—my lovely garden and everyday’s 3-5 walking in our neighborhood… ⠀

Have a lovely and beautiful day 🥰🥰🥰

Hello and Welcome 2020!!

Hello and welcome 2020!! 💙🎉 I am so excited for you!! 🥰

We are still enjoy the visit of our best friend from California. And even Seattle “pleased” us with a whole week of rains and storm, we still had a wonderful New Year celebration, visited most of our lovely friends, went to see a snow (40-minutes drive from us) and our local German village. And today we have about 4 hours before the next rain, so we are off for some hike 🤓

Hi dear friends!
This year … I almost did NOT: changed specialization, fell in love with summer, visited China, Ukraine, Israel…
But the list of happenings come true is much longer!
What a saturated, unpredictable and spontaneous, but sure wonderful and amazing year!
We started this year with total remodeling of our front and back yards. I was so hooked with landscape design, learn a lot, designed and we are so happy with our old new yards! ⠀
Graduated from several interesting courses: marketing, illustrator, branding. A lot of things I want to share and try, but to be honest, in my head is still a mess a bit of excess information 🙈
⠀ ⠀
I will definitely share other news, new designs and patterns. But, today I want to wish you Happy Thanksgiving and I can not wait to show you to the gifts and deals that I have prepared for you!

Hello 2018!!! Our Holiday Adventures


Hi my dears! How is your 2018 so far?! ;o)

I am still under absolutely wonderful memories and emotions …and have a bit lazy day. Tomorrow I’ll be back to my lovely work, but today I decided to share with you some pictures and videos from our such exciting, enjoyable and full of surprises holiday season.

This is perhaps the first year when I finished all scheduled projects until December 20; my husband took a mini vacation, – and we were able to fully enjoy almost two weeks of our friend’s visit from the CA.

Christmas was absolutely awesome! In the morning, friends invited us to join ride on their yacht. Afternoon, it began to snow, which is not typical for Seattle, but certainly added a festive mood! Plus we hosted a party with our lovely friends – what could be better!


And here is that moment, when you ask husband to share a photo from the museum for your blog post, and he sends you a link to the entire album:

Last week of 2017 was extremely busy and exciting: such fun with lots of friends, Summit ski resort, Leavenworth Christmas lights, Flying Heritage & Combat Armor museum on one rainy Seattle day – just to name a few Winking smile

Flying Heritage & Combat Armor museum:


I even managed to avoid the holiday’s cooking – we were at a New Year’s show. But I think I was probably the only one who cooked breakfast on the January 1st, but, crêpes with red caviar is one of our favorite dishes!


January 1st 2018 breakfast:



OK, that’s all! Looking forward for my very first working day tomorrow!! ;о)))

P.S.: Yes, I wrote down all passwords Winking smile
