Shampoo Bottles

I work for a recycling company and we get tons of new,empty shampoo bottles

 like this one in different colors

 I saw on pinterest that they made cute gift bags out of them and I wanted to give it a try too.
I didt made pics during the progress cause  I got pretty lazy taking pics lately. But I think i turned out pretty cute andy many ways to decorate them.

Now I Want Some Ostrich Eggs Too

Well I got Marianne two ostrich eggs and somehow I wanted some two...... I have no clue what I will do with the egg shells - its more a MUST HAVE - lol

After going back to the ostrichs I came home with these two

I wanna keep the shells in a whole I had to open them in a different way😅

I didnt like the smell of the drilled on shell - but finally the hole was done

and now I had to get the egg out.......

We had omlette that day - from the taste, well I would say that there is no difference from a chicken egg.

The shells are in a locker and waiting for me to get an idea what to do with them.

Ostrich Eggs And Birthday Present

Last year I was looking for a birthday present for a friend - she is very creative and is interested in a lot of things to do, to try out........... since engraving is one of her interests I thought about a present which goes in this direction. I knew that Marianne already did great job on engraved eggs......... well chicken eggs what about some ostrich eggs?!?! But where can I get ostrich eggs in Germany......... very close to my house - only a 30 min. drive away

May I introduce you to the rooster

 and his chickens

 Even if they looked friendly and the owner fed them out of his hands - I had huuuuge respect........

 .......look at their claws - must be a leftover from a pterosaurian. The owner told me that they can easily rip open your stomach - well that kept even more on distance.

I bought two eggs and here you can compare a chicken and an ostrich egg. An ostrich egg is approx. 15 chicken eggs

ready to surpise Marianne

Saddle Rack

Over the years I got myself some saddles hmmmphhh five by now. They used to hang on racks at my home office..........but I needed the room and they had to go. Since we had the big rebuilding at the house the attic was still empty - perfect place for my saddles

and here is the little saddle rack for the fifth saddle which is normally at the barn

The racks are all made vom recycled wood I got from work.

Horse Tail Hair Bracelet

Oh boy I think it has been way too long since I blogged....... grrrrrr nothing works right here.......... hmmmm I hope with some practise I will get my routine back

This was the first bracelet I made out my horses tail hair

 and I made some more for my friends from their horses tail hair

All together I made about ten bracelets from tail hair - mostly for the horse owners birthdays and well I must say that they all were really excited about it.


Break Because I Got Bitten

 I got bitten by one of my cats because a stray cat sneaked into our house and Moritz had a big problem with it. I picked Moritz up to pass the stray cat with him on my arm.............. well picking him up infront of the stray cat was too much for his ego.......

I got hospitalized for a whole week including surgery.......... I denied to get a general anaesthetic - so I was wide awake, the surgery-team was really funny and they gave me two Ferrero Kuesschen, when I got rolled out of the operating room

(only continue looking if you have a stronger tummy)
