Cover-Up Plans

The last weeks…..well, rather months I’ve been trying to find a satisfying solution for my old tattoo. One with the WOW – effect!
I made this tattoo about ten years ago, as a loving memory of Gulliver, our first cat.
We were still living in Sweden and thought about adopting a cat. In the end it was wonderful Gulliver who moved in with us, a beautiful black, 14 year old Norwegian Forest mix. Surely, no-one else would have adopted such an old cat (who has already spent two years in a cat shelter). We just felt magically drawn to him….I’m sure, it was meant that we found Gulliver – or maybe he found us?

Ready for a change?

Doing laundry…..not everyones cup of tea!
But everyone has to do it…..some daily – some weekly, if you like it or not. And since you can’t get rid of if, why not do it the smart way?
A while ago, I found the perfect solution: DIZOLVE!
I’m sure some of you know these laundry detergent strips already. Apparently it’s a Canadian product and as far as I know, it can be purchased all over the world (even here in Switzerland, haha… 😉).
Actually, I don’t know where to start to enumerate all the positive sides….Here are the (my) top ten:

What? Already October??

Dear Furiends!
Can you believe it? Recently was still happy summertime and – bang! – it’s autumn!
Those of you who know me, know how much I hate it! And even worse: Winter will be next!
I already had a taste of what is awaiting poor me! Wetness, cold, wind, fog….you name it! None of it suits my taste, that’s for sure!I mean, you guys have our gear, but – honestly – what would I look like in wellingtons? I doubt if I still would be a respectable cat in those items! After all, it’s ME, who is guarding our house and garden.

Anchoring at Cala di Volpe, Sardinia

Then we reached our last anchor spot. We headed for Cala di Volpe which is host for all the famous.
Even Lady Diana the late Princess have been at this spot. We figured that if it is good enough for a Lady why not for us.
It was a wonderful spot for a evening and night at anchor, even if it was quite windy when arriving late afternoon it became perfect one hour later.

Colourful Killers

Imagine! There is a party going on, a birthday, a wedding, an anniversary…..whatever the occasion might be.
The mood is excellent (hopefully), the food is lovely, accompanied by various drinks. Your friends are there, family, you hear laughter and chatter. Above all, the weather is perfect, just as it should be.
More often than not, you will also find varicoloured balloons on such events. Tied to strings, in order to prevent them to fly away.

Deadline…..

We are very sorry, but we had such a busy week and, therefore, none of us had the time to write a cool post….
Nevertheless, we do wish you all a great and relaxing weekend! Take care
PS: “Australia for Dolphins” (AFD) changed their name and logo. You can see the new one on our site!

Am I ready?

Many of you know that I’ve been rather busy for the last few months. Being creative and very much enjoying what I did, naturally.
What had started as sort of a playful attempt, suddenly became a more serious thing. My bracelets and necklaces were unexpectedly more and more popular amongst our friends and families. It didn’t take long and their friends and families also wanted to own a piece. Orders started to come in, with special color requests…..
It was such a big surprise for me and I was overwhelmed, about their interest in my jewellery. Not to mention my slowly growing success!
These days, my creations are displayed in a fashion boutique, a nearby tattoo studio and “our” Harley dealer! Isn’t that awesome?
