This Swarovski heart necklace was given to me as a gift. It’s not only beautiful but I also love the fact that its string is made of waxed cotton instead of leather. I always find it fascinating how many great alternatives there are to animal products. Thumbs up!
The other day I heared Fritzi cry in the kitchen. Usually he would sit infront of the door, waiting to go in the garden, so I went to open the door for him. But instead of sitting in front of the door, he was sitting infront of the counter and he was crying for the [...]

Our dog Fritzi loves food (we definatelly have that in common). But as if his own food is not enough for him, he would even try to snack on the birds food. Very sneaky, Fritzi!
Don’t you all love the look of a beautifully wrapped gift? I think it makes the giving even more fun and exciting. All the fun makes it easy though, to forget about all the waste the yearly gift-wrapping is producing. This is why I’ve been looking for eco-friendly alternatives and found the most beautiful wrappings. [...]
