We are very happy to launch the EARTHLY DELIGHTS series today.
Sandy and myself met virtually at Blogging your Way in 2012, stayed in contact during the upcoming month and got finally to meet (long awaited) in May this year celebrating together her birthday in Barcelona.
We have a common love for travel, photography, food and styling.

Sandy loves everything food related and my passion is about styling and decorating. There will be one topic every month such at is PATTERN PARTY now in June translated, formed and created in our very individual ways.

But I always love those editorials when magazines present their new collections on wallpapers and fabrics and have wanted to do something similar ever since: upholster, dress, style with textiles and print. So, the idea was of presenting flowers, checks, stripes, tye dye effects and dots-everything en vogue right now- in a way they would still work together (there is even an octopus:-) with a nice back drop and some 3D elements. The props come from magazines such as Simple Things and Elle Decoration and different shops in Germany and Spain. I had really f fun putting everything together and you know the best part is yet to come: discover was Sandy has been ‘cooking’…”
Note for my German readers: Sandy has been writing a lovely text in German. Enjoy reading her, here.
