once upon a time




once upon a time.... fearsome longships with dragon-heads and blood red sails were crossing the oceans. Glimpsing them coming to shore, you better took your heels...

this is a so called German "Fruehstuecksbrettchen", there seems no appropriate word to exist in the English language as it is obviously not popular outside Germany (?). Maybe "bread board" fits best. If you know a better word for it, I´d be happy to know :)

Now available in my shop

We call it a "fjøl" in Norwegian.

wieder mal eine sehr kreative Idee von Dir, wer hätte gedacht, das Frühstücksbrettchen so schön sein können ?

p.b. there doesn't exist an English term for 'Frühstücksbrettchen' (neither for its Bavarian cousin)...

Cutting boards do come in similar shapes, but still it isn't really the same. :)

oh, and p.p.b.: Spoonflower... Spoonflower!

Ich sah heute mit meiner Familie den neuen "Wickiefilm" und bei dem Abspann mußte ich sehr an Dich und Deine Figürchen denken... und um Frühstücksbrettchen schleiche ich auch schon lange herum - schön sind Deine geworden!

Einen lieben Gruß von
myriam.
