Red shoes of many shades

I like red shoes although it's hard to find some here in my town. In the shops there are mostly brown and black shoes and nowadays also grey ones which I think are often ugly. But yesterday I found a pair of wine-red shoes on a fleamarket for only 3 €. Yeah!!! I tried my red shoes with different kinds of red tights.

Me as a colour red

Some years ago I went as a colour red in carnival. It was funny and crazy and I got a lot of attention. Don't care about my strange expression.

Handpainted Bohemian glass

Let's make some posts about this vibrant colour red. You can read more about this strong colour here.
Last time I found a set of a bottle and six wine glasses at a thrift store. It's handpainted Bohemian glass and I liked it from the first sight, but as it was 25 € I had to think about this purchase overnight cause honestly I won't use these glasses anytime. But I couldn't forget them and so I bought them the other day. Look, how beautiful they are!
This school book about mammals from 1961 I got for free cause it's a bit tattered. But the squirrel on it is quite cute and inside are nice drawings about other mammals I'll show you later.

Red necklaces

Here you can see that red has been my favourite colour for a long time. And that I'm fond of corals: real corals and reproduced corals of any kind.

Jewellery display

Today you can have a look at my jewellery diplay. I bought it for 10 € when a beloved shop closed.
 You may think: Dear me! That's a lot of jewellery! And I have to admit: You're right! Anyway, here are some closer looks. Most of the earrings are self-made.

Cute toy deers

I bought these four cheap deers because they reminded me of toy animals I played with when I was a child.

Heart warming idea!

See what I've found on the gorgeous blog Color Me Katie. That's such a nice and heart warming idea. The extremely creative Katie paints hearts on rocks and puts them in places where they almost blend in to cheer up people who are so low that they can't look up to see the sky.

A parcel, yeah!

I couldn't resist and ordered two brooches from the Dawanda shop MiMaMeise that I showed you before. And that is, what I got today. A delicate flower hand and a romantic tea cup. It was wrapped so cute and there were such nice give-aways in it.

One month anniversary!

Yeah! Today my blog exists for exactly one month. I did 32 posts and this is one post every day. Didn't think that I would keep up. But it's so much fun. I've got so many ideas for future posts if I only had the time. But I'm also happy that I got some very cute comments on my posts and even one follower. Thought that would take much longer.
But now I show you all of my shoes cause I organized my shoerack completely new. Before it was a mess. I arranged the shoes according to their colour. Do you think that's a little bit fussy? Tell me.


Have a colourful shoe day!

Flea market finds

I'll show you some more flea market finds from the last weekend.
 The plates, not the cookies of course!
 
 Can you imagine that? All those shoes for only 7.50 €. And they're such beauties.

Cooking chutney

Today I made tomato chutney. I got the recipe in a vegetarian Indian cooking class which I attended with my daughter who is vegan-vegetarian. It tastes delicious. You can eat it with rice, couscous, bread, even spaghetti if you want. We often have it with Indian spinach and papadams.
 
TAMATAR CHATNI
vegetable oil
4 cloves garlic, diced
a lot of ginger, diced 
12 scallions, diced
20 cloves
2 teasp cinnamon powder
1600 g chopped tomatoes (canned)
150 ml vinegar
12 tablespoons raw cane sugar
2 teaspoons salt
some chilli powder or sambal oelek
2 tablespoons brown mustard seeds
Cook garlic, ginger, scallions and the spices in oil until they're golden. Stir in tomatoes, vinegar, sugar and cover; bring to a simmer for one hour or more until the chutney has concentrated enough. Season with salt and chili powder. Pick out the 20 cloves. At last roast the mustard seeds in oil until they're starting to spring. Put them into the chutney. Fill the chutney in well cleaned twist off jars. 
You may now lick the spoon (but be careful not to burn your tongue!)
Have a colourful, spicy day!
