    Happy new week my darlings!

    I hope you all have enjoyed a nice weekend! We created these pictures yesterday as the weather turned out quite lovely and I had to end my weekend hibernation and overenthusiastic house cleaning.

    I was gifted this beautiful yellow Hercules bike by a friend of mine who moved out. I haven’t named her yet for the single reason M. is using her.

    If you wonder why is he driving around a girly bike, well I’m glad you asked. I have to thank Karma or that person who helped me to not turn covetous by owning two bikes and stole M’s bicycle locked right outside our building.

    I feel very angry and when I think about it because he built his bicycle piece by piece, buying everything second hand on Ebay. It was beautiful bright blue and very elegant-if one call call a bicycle elegant that is. It was a touch flamboyant if you’re asking me, once the seat was stolen, another time the front wheel and now as whole.

      Sorry about the bike being stolen! I hope it works itself out and M gets a new bike soon. And by the way, that color is amazing on you 🙂

        Thank you Marie! I wrote by mistake the bike belonged to me on Instagram and then it was too late to change. Caffeine-free posts in the morning are not good for me

          Me too 🙂 I’m always a bit of a zombie in the early AM.

      Oh, so sorry that this obviously beautiful bike has been stolen … but I see you got this cool yellow bike 🙂 Yes, it could be really Karma! Love the wonderful yellow sweater!

      I’m so sorry that M had his bike stolen, that’s horrible! But, don’t worry, it will happen to the one who stole it because what goes around does in fact come back around. This is such a cute little yellow bike and it works perfectly as a prop to your photos with your beautiful yellow sweater, I love the details! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the best week ahead!

        I do hope that person won’t enjoy the bike. Aaah if I see him/her on the street…

      I love love love this new bike your friend gave you! And the last photo with you on it is dreamy! What an amazing sweater my dear Tatjana! The ruffles, the knit, the color, it is perfect from every angle! Sad to hear about M’s bike, I would be pissed too. Last Monday someone stole my adidas Stansmith worn sneakers from the gym haha can you believe that? But you are so right, sometimes as soon as you loose something, you gain something else!
      Wonderful photography by the way! Have an amazing start to the week and thank you for sharing my darling Tatjana!

      I like the colors here Tatjana and specially the ruffle sweater… sorry to hear about the stolen bike. Maybe he can add it to his Christmas list 😉

      I like that colour on you, T. Have you noticed it matches the colour of your bike.
      So sorry to hear of M’s bike. I know what it’s like to make a bike from pieces. It becomes a one off, and to have it stolen. How horrible.
      Have a lovely week. It is absolutely awful here. Floods, wind and leaden skies.
      Kisses, Jo

        I did notice as a matter of fact:) Have a nice week Jo! Surprisingly the weather will be very nice here in Germany this week! The Chrismas markets are starting too. Do you like mulled wine?

          There will be a lovely Christmas Market near here soon. At a town called, Chichester. But I am going to the one at St Albans.
          Mulled wine. Oh yes, l love that.
          In fact, I like pretty much everything. Very easy to please, Me

      How lovely your friend passed this yellow bike onto you, though I’m sad for your other half – how horrible of someone to have stolen something he put so much effort into building! On a brighter note, the colour of this jumper looks absolutely beautiful on you and I adore the photography in this post 🙂
