Yes I am back on US soil and I feel burned out. Every year when I come back I feel exhausted and in a funk. And it takes me about a week or two to snap out of it.
Amongst some really cool things that I brought in my suitcase (which I want to share with you in this post) I also acquired a nice set of muffin tops 🙁
Lets say I didn’t only stretch my suitcases to the max thanks to all the great restaurants, bakeries and happy hours. Well, back to reality lady… steamed chicken, veggies and tea for me for a while.
I haven’t shared many photos with you towards the end of my trip because unfortunately my photo lens of my awesome Nikon broke midterm of our trip and I only had our tiny Nikon which doesn’t take pictures that are blog worthy.
With this post I’m trying out our new lens to show you some of the items that I brought home with me.
There is definitely a theme here this year and I hate themes (I really do) but I couldn’t help myself. I love deer and antlers right now. I even bought rubber rain boots and a shirt with deer on it. I won’t wear it together tough. Overkill!
Speaking of antlers: I brought the mossy antler from my childhood playhouse. My dad thought I was nuts when I asked him to take it down because I wanted it. It was mounted by the front door after my father had found it about 30 years ago on a walk through the woods when I was a child.
I might use the antler for Christmas or as a fall table decoration. Can’t wait!
This deer pillow caught my eye on one of my shopping trips to Würzburg. I know it’s strange! Had to have it though! There’s also one with the back of the deer’s head but it was out-of-stock.
All this might make you think that I like hunting but I don’t…nope, I despise hunting! I don’t get the point of seeing a beautiful creature and wanting to shoot it. Don’t get me started! I have to change the subject.
I also brought home my late grandmother’s antique silverware. Before She got married in the 1920s, her last name was Kaufmann and the K now matches my last name. The silver box is a solid sterling silver box from Turkey that was hers as well. So beautiful!
My childhood babysitter gave me a vintage Rosenthal porcelain box. Isn’t it beautiful?
And last but not least, I went to a flea market in my home town and bought some antique locks and keys. My favorites were this huge old key and the baroque, handmade lock with key.
I love all my little treasures, which one is your favorite?
And what did you bring home from your vacation this summer?
Talk to you soon und guten Tag!
