So it's Friday and time for the weekend and relaxing with my family I have been hit but the utter greyness of the skies, and thought I'd brighten up my day and hopefully yours too. I stumbled across these amazing Mimosa flowers at the florist, and couldn't resist. Together with my fave coffee cup, and a vintage step it's perfect. Happy weekend everyone.

Ferm living is one of my favourite Danish brands, and I always find something I can't live without each season. This one is no exception, and I am more than delighted to see a continuous green wave everywhere. We need greenery, especially when it is so grey and drab outside. Do you display green plants at home, or do you prefer the odd orchid here and there, and your greens in the garden??
Happy Wednesday people x

I have got porcelain envy (or whatever you'd call it): Hammershøi from Kähler has the right combination of plain and simple, but also elegant and traditional. I love that the 'lines' on the plates almost fade out. This stuff will be on my shopping list, when I feel the urge of having a 'uniform porcelain collection'. What do you think? Have you got matching porcelain at home, or do you mix and match for an eclectic look. Or is it not really something you think about yet? Happy Monday everybody.

One thing us Scandinavians adore to eat is 'Knækbrød' also known as cracker-bread or crisp-bread. We use it as an afternoon snack for the kids (and us) with garlic cheese, honey, or jam; we serve it with our cheeseboards, or even with a tapas plate. I have made my own for a while now, and it disappears overnight if I forget to put them away in the pantry. My Knækbrød is so simple to make and so tasty, so here is my recipe for you to enjoy:
Anya's EASY PEASY Knækbrød
1 dl oats
1 dl sunflower seeds
1 dl pumpkin seeds
1 dl linseeds/flaxseeds
3 dl flour
2 dl oil (I use rapeseed or olive oil)
1 1/4 dl water
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
a good pinch of salt.
Preheat oven to 200° Celsius
Mix it all together - give it a good old stir, and take a portion onto baking paper. Put another sheet on top, and flatten with you hands and a rolling pin. Form into a square, and keep at it so it becomes rather thin (so it turns nice and crispy)
When it has the right size, cut into diamonds or squares with pizza cutters, ensuring you make them similar in size. Grind a bit of extra salt on top with your salt grinder, as it makes it much tastier.
Put in the oven for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Leave to cool. ENJOY.
HAPPY FRIDAY folks xx
