Damals ... vor 20 Jahren habe ich ein Buch gesetzt mit Gedichten von Else Lasker-Schüler. Als Vorsatzpapier schnitt ich Rosenblüten in Linol und druckte sie in rot auf rotes Papier.

In those days ... 20 years ago I've printed a book with poems of Else Lasker-Schüler. As endpaper I cut rose petals in lino and imprinted them in red on red paper.

Heutzutage ... in der x. Blüte meines Lebens
(wäre ich eine Blume, dann eine, die mehrfach blüht) serviere ich Kuchen auf einer Platte mit selbstgemalten Blütenranken, versuche Blüten zu häkeln und knüpfe Perlen zu Blüten-Ringen.

These days ... in the x. prime of my life
(would I be a flower, than one, which reflorish multiple) I serve cake on a plate with blossom tendrils self-painted, try to crochet blossoms and make perls to blossom-rings.

This week's drawing challenge is hosted by flowery Milady Stephanie.
I'm looking forward to see the whole carpet of wonderful 'blossoms'.

Who is our next host? Jasmin flower with TAIL!
Please fly to Australia and let her know you're in.
... And one week later I'll be our host?
I've got a word already ...

Herzlich willkommen, liebe Megi.

Oh, Welcome, dear Jasmin flower!

  2. ariane, it is most beautiful, your rose, and on the endpaper of a poetry book too, most delightful! i love it.
    (i am crazy about endpapers in books, by the way, and just todat it's been all about endpapers over here, such coincidence.)
    again! ;)
    i also find the crochet flowers fragile against their background. what will you do with them?
    the paris ring (okay, alright! it's no blossom) is wonderful, but so are your flowery rings though. phieuwwww! some spring over at yours!!!

    lovely to mention the german name for catkins. we all know them, and they have such exotic names in different languages..

    Dear Nadine,
    yes, what I do with the crochet flowers? One time I want to put them like a belt on a dress of my 6-year-old daughter, than I want to fix them on a cushion cover...
