When we started the renovation I would never ever thought that we are going move in the treehouse as a family of three (or four with Gustav).
But here we are…
I also thought that being a mum is probably a pretty good thing… but let me tell you IT IS AMAZING! Like really, really, really the best thing ever happend to us! (I know that sounds so tacky but it really is!) and (so far) it’s less work (and even more fun) than renovating an old house from scratch!
I can highly recommend it!

I hope to keep up with blog posts because there are so many cool things happening in the treehouse right now (we are going to move in within the next month…) and around our little family that I’d love to share with you. so please stay tuned.

 

roadtrip

We took a short break and a weekend off our renovation timeline to visit Anja and her family in Vorarlberg.
We’ve been there during Easter and we loved it. So when Anja invited us to come and celebrate with her the release of her beautiful self-published magazine SOI we didn’t hesitate and packed our bags!
The weather was perfect and so was the release party!

The location was an organic farm called Vetterhof. They’ve prepared a hay-barn cinema and disco and they served delicious soups made by Anjas partner-in-crime Ulli and her team of the Elfenküche in Dornbirn.

We had a great time at the Vetterhof and in Vorarlberg! Unfortunately we had to leave the next day.
Before that we did a little (baby)bump contest in front of a wooden shingled wall. (I think I won!)

I totally looking forward to come back! (and I think my boys do too!)
And you know what, we need to come back anyway … because we are planning to cover one wall of the nursery with those cute wooden “ruffle” shingles. Unfortunately, those where sold out at the moment. So we are going to collect a few square meters of them some time soon … as soon as we have a wall to cover. (maybe we should start with the essensials first before we buy the decoration!… story of my life..)

Thank you Vroni, Anja, Karl-Heinz and Nini for your heartwarming welcome. Everytime we visit it feels like coming home!

 

vintage factory sale in Vienna

designlichtblick007
Every month there’s a factory sale held by a vienna based Vintage store called “Designlichtblick”. I went there with Tinka and my brother Schorsch to have a look what nice things they got there.

It’s a big old factory full of great stuff. The prices are reasonable. No steals but the stuff is in pretty good condition and the two very sympatic brothers running this business are always open to bargain.

They travel Europe and search for great (mostly) mid-century pieces. Lots of danish Teak and millions of great lamps and chandeliers.

Schorsch fell in love with this vintage Bang and Olufsen hi-fi system. And I fell in love with this small medicine cabinet (photo on the right which I scored for 20 bucks) and this old wooden side table.

Schorsch and Tinka bought some of these 70ies hooks for the renovation of their hallway – 3 bucks each – quite a steal!
