Frida & my favourite Photo - Challenges

  I  came up with another entry for our FRIDA KAHLO theme over at


 it's a watercolor portrait on watercolor paper

and a big Hello to ELIZABETH and the T - Stands - For - Tuesday Bloggers and to 
all the lovely people which join MANUS MIFOC August week 3

Today I can offer you just a cup of lemon balm tea to my spinach - feta strudel.
When I noticed that my "cuttlebug" fits perfect to the color of my cup and jug
 I put the machine  to my arrangement just that you can see - here lives a crafty girl!

Thank you for visiting froebelsternchen today!
Have a happy Tuesday!



  1. Great Art work, as usual Susi and I love comming at teatime your spinach cake looks delicious!!!


  2. I want spinach strudel! NOW!! Guten morgen Susi, was für ein tolles Bild um mich heute morgen zu begrüßen. eine Frida ist wunderschön. GLG, Valerie

  3. Was für ein großartiges Portrait! Toll!
    LG, LonettA

  4. Love this fabulous Frida art piece, Susi! And thanks for your delicious breakfast with retro spices;)
    Have a magic day!

  5. Another lovely Frida entry, dear Susi. You are going to have SO many entries by the time this month is over.

    I had to laugh at your clever use of color to match the cup, jug, and die cutter. Great job. But what surprised me was the fact that when I think of strudel, I think of sweet, not savory. I am really tickled to learn strudel comes in "flavors" other than apple, cherry, or peach!

    Thanks so much for sharing, and for joining T this Tuesday.

  6. The Frida painting is very beautiful Susi but the Spinach Strudel seems to have won the day--sounds delicious.

    Love Chrissie x

  7. Ein schönes Bild, liebe Susi! Und ein tolles Stillleben :) Eine schöne Momentaufnahme mit Strudel! Ich hoffe, er hat geschmeckt!
    Viele liebe Grüße zu Dir

  8. oooh loving your strudel and your new Frida. She is definitely addictive. Annette x


  9. Absolutely mazing Susi, wow, such a wonderful portrait! The shadows you have added to her face give so much expression and depth!

    The strudel looks yummy and make me feel hungry lol!

  10. Fab project - I really like your works. Amazing colors and ideas :)

  11. hahaha, solange du nicht den strudelteig durch die cuttlebug nudelst *g*... super Zusammenstellung und auf den strudel hätte ich total lust!!
    auch deine Kunstwerke der letzten tage sind allesamt wieder klasse, aber ich komme nicht so viel zum kommentieren, muss mich erst noch mit meinem Fotobuch beschäftigen und hab auch da spaß dabei!
    liebe grüße xoxo

  12. You never cease to amaze me at all your interpretations of the chosen themes for AJJ. I am working on my second Frida now.

  13. Das Porträt ist wieder mal nur genial.
    Genauso wie Deine Zusammenstellung auf dem Tisch, einfach wunderbare Farben. Ja, den Spinatstrudel hätte ich auch gerne gehabt.
    Alles Liebe,

  14. Gorgeous work of art Susi,love the colours used.

    What an interesting strudel combo,I have only had a sweet apple strudel,didn't think of a savoury one!

  16. I've had spinach/feta pizza and spinach/feta quiche, but I think of strudel as sweet. This sounds good. Thanks for the idea :)

  17. So much to enjoy here...
    Frida for your special tea...
    she looks fabulous Susi!!!
    and all of those lovely colors together...
    your dotted tablecloth is just perfect too!
    Happy (Frida) T Day

  18. Really Susi all of your Frida art has been truly fabulous!!! I love spinach strudel and your delicious and crafty table make for such a pretty setting too.

  19. Ein super tolles Porträt!
    und dein Spinatstrudel auf dem leckeres Foto macht Apetitt!

    Schönen Nachmittag wünsche ich dir!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  20. Love that color green these days! Hugs! deb

  21. Very pretty picture with all you green, like Deb, I find myself leaning toward that color of green these days too.

    Happy T-day

  22. Well done on the Frida watercolor. I don't have a cuttlebug but if I did I'd want it to be the same great green as yours.


  23. Was für ein fantastisches Bilde - und das frische grün scheint deine Lieblingsfarbe zu sein ;o)

  24. Love your Frida and that spinach strudel is enticing me. Great work.

  25. Du bist also auch im "grünen" Bereich! Sieht echt frisch aus und der Strudel wäre auch mein Geschmack.

    Das Frida Portrait ist so wahnsinnig gut! Du bist so wahnsinnig gut!!

    Ach, jetzt hätte ich auch richtig Lust, noch ein paar Frida-Beiträge zu schaffen, jetzt steht ja erstmal das Workshopwochenende an... aber vielleicht danach, dann ist ja immer noch August.
    LG Ulrike

  26. love your frida, so soft and dreamy, I cant stop drawing her what a fun challenge

  27. I enjoyed stopping by to see your lovely Frida. And now I want to stay for a slice of that spinach struedel. Great art great food - how does life get better than that?

  28. Oh that looks delicious! And the Cuttlebug green is a perfect match. ;)
    Happy T-Day! :)

  29. I'm fascinated by your many and varied, clever and artistic paintings for the Frida theme, including this one. If I ever come to visit, feta and spinach strudel will do perfectly - along with lemon balm tea!

  30. Summer is almost over here and I still have not sketched any sunflowers. Thank you for the lovely picture that you have shared here. Your Frida portrait looks lovely. I will be back in participating again for the challenges next month.

  31. Love your colour scheme

  32. Frida is looking great but your Strudel is the winner today. It just looks gorgeous.
    Mmmmmn. I like how you get your drinkware to match your crafting tools!

  33. Love your art and I so want to come eat with you :)

  34. Oh how yummy! I want spinach & feta strudel! I'm not a baker, so I will just have to drool over my screen ;)
    Crafty idea to team up your cuttlebug with your tea setting :D

  35. You are too cute Susi! Crafty indeed!! Love your new Frida and boy of boy does that strudel ever look yummy!! xoxo

  36. Hi there,

    New to this whole T for Tuesday thing, but that strudel looks really good! These posts are making me hungry!

  37. Ja, ich nehme auch ein Stück Strudel.... da wirst du wohl noch einmal backen müssen ;) Klasse Foto und tolles Frida-Bild.

  38. Hello and Happy T Day a little late. I love the yummy food here and the color green everywhere! Thanks for sharing and making me hungry. Have a good week!

  39. Wow, beautiful...I could spent a whole day here, Susi.
