One of my favorite cafes in Nürnberg - Hans Sachs 10

After the opening ceremony of the Christkindlesmarkt we went to one of my favorite cafes in Nuremberg - the Hans Sachs 10 (formerly Sachs & Söhne) at Hans-Sachs Platz.

Ceramic objects by Anna-Carin Dahl

"Anna-Carin Dahl creates lively, light and playful ceramic objects for everday use and joy. Her collections are decorated with animals and plants from the deepest forests, and each carry a little scene or story...Anna-Carin Dahl is a product designer and maker of ceramic objects. She graduated from Danmarks Designskole in 2002. Her studio is placed in design collective Designer Zoo in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her products are made and decorated by hand in the studio, and her inspiration is strongly influenced by her Swedish background." from

Visiting Designer Zoo in Copenhagen was on top of my to-do list when we've been to Denmark back in 2007. But unfortunately I got sick as soon as we arrived in our vacation home in Denmark and we got to take things slow...we've been to Copenhagen for a day trip and it was a lovely day but unfortunately we didn't make it to Designer Zoo. But well, I will definitely check it out next time. So this is only one more reason to visit Denmark again soon ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving-away

I decided it's about time to put up a little giveaway contest on my blog. Actually I already wanted to put it up yesterday and give it away for my birthday but I was busy packaging and sending out orders and didn't want to miss my birthday dinner...
So I decided that Thanksgiving is a good day - if not even the best day - for giving away a little present, too. I'm giving away one of our HONIG & PFEFFER Lebkuchen Assortments. The winner can choose between the Glutenfree Assortment* or the Small Chocolate Assortment**.
