The plum season has started. And it's a flood. Which is good, because plums are tasty and a good source of vitamins. If getting tired eating them raw and ripe as they are, try baking a cake. I have baked

I found some pictures from last summer. They're made with my old film camera using a yellow filter. It was a trip to lake Peipsi. It's bit funny to imagine the life before Oskar.

Meet one of Oskar’s best friends - Osvald the raccoon. Maara made it for him. Osvald has been in our family as long as Oskar. Over the last few weeks they haven't been really close, because of the teething period.

We visited the Telliskivi flea market today. It takes place every saturday, and if you're there, check out the whole Telliskivi Urban Walk. They have a lot of trendy and interesting little shops and restaurants there. I got Albert an old

We got a lovely present from our friends - Oskar got a teether and I got a bracelet. It's 100% food grade silicone, soft and with really cool design. And what counts most is that Oskar loves it as much I

I love those bit rainy summer days, cause then I have time for cooking. Today we made some waffles. I have this pretty old russian waffle iron - Esta. It's been my good friend since I was a kid and

We spent the whole weekend wandering around Haapsalu and Noarootsi. It seems to be my new favorite area - all the ports and cafes - just wonderful. some photos are taken by my friend Pirgit.
