Five Things. An old school doormat, the best noise ever and German crime.

Hallo meine Lieben,

hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! Please check out my friend Celeste's Five Things as well. 



1. This doormat. 



I have always searched for the perfect doormat and I think I found it. I am a huge fan of mix tapes, I still own a whole lot of them. When I was 12 or 13 I started to swap mix tapes with my pen pals which was so fantastic. I still love to listen to them or just look at the tapes and see what they recorded for me. I mean, it was so much effort to make a mix tape. So they really are little gems to me. I am old school, you know. 


2. This lamb.



You can find the video here on Cute Overload. Please invest seven seconds of your life to watch it because you won't regret it. This makes me laugh even after the 50th time of watching. And turn the volume up. 



3. This story.



A heartwarming story of a foal rescue. Find it here. My furry family members love to snuggle with stuffed animals as well. 


4. This book.


I realized that I read a lot of crime novels but never a German one. I just always preferred the Scandinavian/Icelandic ones. But this one sounded so exciting that I had no other choice. The modus operandi of the killer is not for the faint-hearted, that is for sure. 


5. These sunglasses.


I might need some new sunglasses for summer. Those look pretty fantastic, I would say. 


Happy weekend!

    1. Yeah, I really wish there would still be mix tapes around. They are so meaningful because you actually have to invest some time to record them!

  5. That doormat is amazing!
    I read a lot of German crime novels because my boss always gives me books for Christmas, and they are usually crime novels or thrillers. Last year she gave me one by a French author that had been translated into German, but mostly they are by German authors.She gave me one by Andreas Eschbach once and I found it so boring I couldn't even finish it!

    1. I have never read Andreas Eschbach but I guess I won't check those books out then. :) I usually prefer the Scandinavian ones because they are never boring! :) But this one is so exciting, I am really enjoying it a lot! You have a nice boss by the way!

  8. That doormat is a cool idea! I loved mix tapes, too. I still have them all....but I just realized I don't have a player anymore. Bummer!
    LOL - I watched the lamb video 5 times and was laughing every time :)
    That foal is so cute! I had no idea a stuffed animal can be of such great help :)
    I need to read that book, too!

      My pets love stuffed animals as well. They seem to be very comforting!
