Dear Readers and Followers,
today the blog entry is written by a guestblogger – Irene’s daughter 🙂
Creativity kind of runs in our family. We are from a line of women creating all sorts of fun projects. Irene is making jewelry, clothes, she knits some amazing scarfs (thanks, mama) – and she makes rolls so good that a daughter would go to Spain to get one. Meanwhile Granma is the queen of knitting, and no one could make as beautiful dresses out of pearls (!) for small mannequin dolls as Great Granma could. Me? Well, I am not mastering any of my creative talents yet, but I guess that it’s because I seek too many adventures at one time.
A little about me: I left to live in South Germany, where you find the most romantic towns and old, beautiful buildings. In other words I’m surrounding myself by architecture looking like this:
The German Christmas markets are famous all over the world for their wonderful atmosphere – and for their Glühwein (sweet, spicy, warm red wine). The season for these markets will start in just a couple of days, and then I’ll go there myself to pick up new inspiration.
Just like my mom, I also spend a lot of time on various hobbies. One day I might decide to start learning about how to make Japanese origami, and the next day I decide to sew a monster for a friend’s baby. And the day after I find out that there’s an amazing cake called Red Velvet Cheesecake that I have to try making (any excuse for baking is always welcome). Lately I am reading about how to brew beer. And guestblogging.
Irene on the other hand is putting a lot of time and effort into creating her beautiful jewelry. And she’s pretty good at it. She’s spending a long time on thinking about projects, letting the right ideas come to her. It can take a lot patience to make this. She has made it to more than a 100 followers already, which I find pretty impressive. Go mom!
It’s hard to pick favorites out of her collections, but as we all have our personal style, I also have my favorites. Like these cute, purple hoops:
Compliment them with the classic black dress, and a girl’s night out just started with lots of style! 😉
My mom loves gemstones – where I often choose the simplicity of the metal – and wear something like these sweet angels:
But we all have our preferences 😉
If you like these jewelry, and if you are in lack of good ideas what to give for Christmas, you should pay a visit to her store on Etsy:
Cyberhugs and best wishes to all of you – and wishes that you’re also living out your dreams, whatever they might be!

Thank you Irene’s daughter for a lovely post. I cannot wait to go to Germany for Christmas and have Glühwein and Lebkuchen. Cheers to brewing your own beer 😉
I guess that comes with the territory of living in Germany
Oh yes, the Lebkuchen are for sure also worth mentioning 🙂 But to me they are more like pre-Christmas sweets, than they are Christmas Market necessities!
I’m not sure how many of the Germans produce their own beer. To be frank I realized that I miss some of the spicier Christmas beers we have back in Denmark. So brewing is partially an interest in learning new “cooking experiments” and partially because of missing a larger selection of beers in the stores 🙂 However, I do consider my brewing ideas as a sign that I’m easily integrating into the German culture 😉
Lovely piece from your daughter 🙂 warm regards Don Charisma
Thank you very much. I love my kids more than any one else in the World.
Beautiful 🙂 🙂
Thank you very much.
