Five Things. Books, unusual animal friends and cat skirts.

Hallo meine Lieben,

happy weekend! I hope you are all having a fantastic time! I am planning to bake some more Christmas cookies on Sunday.
Please check out my friend Celeste's Five Things as well.



1. This book.



I got the book from my Dad as a Nikolaus gift. Together with some vegan gummi bears, chocolate and marzipan. I guess my Dad knows me very well. Can't wait to start reading the book. More Swedish crime is always good. 


2. These animals. 


A cat raised by ferrets. Sounds unusual but works. Such an adorable team. Animals show us again that it does not matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like. We are all equal. You can read more about it here.


3.  This skirt.  And the matching shirt. 


As I have mentioned before, I have a weak spot for anything with an animal on it. So this skirt and shirt are just way too cute and I probably would not be able to resist buying them. I mean, that cat looks like Tiger. 


4.  This journal. 


Seems like a perfect gift for a book lover. Like me. It is already on my Christmas wishlist. I know that there is Goodreads but I like all things old school so a book journal where you can actually write into sounds promising to me. 


5. This truth.


Instead of enslaving animals in countless way we should really listen to their needs. And act. Just saying. 


Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Hi Ankita,
      in Germany we celebrate the Nikolaus day. Kids put their shoes in front of their door the night of Dec 5 and when they wake up in the morning the Saint Nikolaus left some chocolate, nuts, fruits, little gifts for them. The Nikolaus also has a "mean" guy with him, the Knecht Ruprecht. He scares the kids when they did not behave well but usually they just get presents. :)
