A silver cone, very festive, don't you agree?
Another fun thing is making Christmas banners:
What's about you, have you started to craft for Christmas yet (only 7 weeks left btw ;-) ) and will you share your ideas? I for one would love to see them, because I can never get enough inspirations!
P.S.: Btw, while visiting Tea's blog today I saw this cool new counter that she had on her site, where you can see how many people are online and from which country they are. I found this very interesting and had to install one too!

I was a bit tired of blogging this week hence only 1 post so far, but then when I come to my blog and read all the gracious comments of all you lovely and talented ladies out there in the world that I so love reading, it really keeps me going! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and commenting! xox
Today I like to share my latest creative results with you. After I saw Nicoles http://www.smalltreasures.blogspot.com/ beautiful matchbox ornaments I just had to try it too and I hope you'll like them:
As always you can click on the photos to enlarge them! Happy weekend to all of you!

The "Inachis io" (we call it "Tagpfauenauge") is resting on the warm house wall, isn't it perfect?
The color of the pansies and of the sedum in the picture below is my fave autumn color:
Seeing how much I love roses and garden bouquets I also had to take a picture of this bouquet in the photo below. It was a present for my mum, all flowers, berries and herbs were picked by our friend in her cottage garden:
And for the case that you like to see what I have created, bought and send to my friend Niki from Somerset in return for her lovely, nostalgic rose and magazine swap parcel you can go over and have a look at her blog http://nostalgiaatthestonehouse.blogspot.com/ , she has got her parcel on Friday and has posted great pictures of the content on her beautiful nostalgic blog! :D
I also wanted to share with you my glass vase of "House Doctor" in the next photo. I'm totally in love with the things they design and so happy that they sell their gorgeous goodies in my fave shop "ROSENROT" here in Bremen. I also bought some of House Doctor's gift wrapping paper and gave my mum a few hints about what I would love to get for Christmas and my next b-day he he
Lastly I like to show you the collage below that I have made for a swap with my German friend Nicole of www.smalltreasures.blogspot.com just so that you can see that I'm also creative from time to time ;-)

after several complaints about my blog taking too long to load I've decided to post pictures not in size BIG anymore, I'll chose size MEDIUM instead, let's see if this helps, I hope so! I know it takes long to load when you are still on a dial up, but normally it should be okay with broadband/fast internet. For me it always loads within a few seconds. Please let me know if you are still experiencing any major loading probs. Thank you!
First of all I wanna thank everyone who has attended my little rose-tea-party, it was such a pleasure to welcome so many of my dear blogging friends and neighbors at the "Boxwood Cottage" ! :D Now let's go and continue the tour through my little cottage garden back yard:
I've sowed this Hollyhock for the next season, but it has decided that the time is too long to wait and to flower already right now:
The sedum is kind of glowing in the warm fall sun:If blogger is nice and likes me today you should be able to enlarge the pictures by clicking on it!
Happy weekend to everyone who might pop in here! xox

I think this glass bowl with dried rose petals of my garden roses has something very photogenic (you can click on the photos to enlarge them!):
So has this small iron-glass table with some glass decoration and an autumnal candle (scenting like baked apple with cinamon) and some tiny rose hips.
