Livingroom love

I am having a bit of a living room obsession today. I actually love everything in this room, and I have just had to purchase the Paolo Roversi photograph on the wall. Do you like this type of room, or do you find it too cold and bland?? 

Happy humpday folks, hope you have a fab one.

Blueberry & Lemon cookies

Another grey Saturday resulted in purchasing a vast amount of blueberries, and then turning them into the most delicious Blueberry & Lemon cookies. They are moist, slightly tangy and ever so yummy.

Here is the recipe for you all to enjoy:
Makes around 20 large cookies

Ingredients:

2.5 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
1.5 cups of fresh blueberries
4 table spoons of fresh lemon juice
1 cup of butter (100 g)
the rind of half an organic lemon

This is how you do:

Mix all the 'dry goods' together in a bowl. (sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla sugar)

Melt the butter and leave to cool, then mix with the eggs, lemon juice, rind, and add the dry goods, bit by bit.

Carefully 'ladle' in the blueberries, without squashing them.

With a tablespoon or cookie spoon, spoon the dough onto baking paper, leaving space between the cookies, as they flatten out.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. 

Bake in the oven until golden brown - usually between 12-15 minutes - depending on size.

ENJOY.

Happy Sunday everyone - today we had a few rays of sunshine, it felt warm, and the girls were out to play for hours on end. Spring is near.

Happy weekend

Another week has flown by without much going on here on the blog. I am feeling the need for Spring, as we are getting drenched here, and are in dire need of greenery and a few rays of sunshine. Living "up north" the weather has a massive impact on my mood to be honest, and I always struggle quite a bit. Therefore I found this stunning image absolutely inspiring, as I long for longer lighter days. Do you have the same obsession with the weather, or is it only me??

Happy weekend everyone - hope you have a bit of sunshine on your nose:)

Dressing up

Every year we look forward to celebrating Fastelavn*. As per tradition we smash the living daylight out of the barrel, and go trick or treating. The children look forward to getting dressed up, and this year Audrey opted to be a circus artist - a line dancer. She has an amazing dress from Tutudumonde, and it was perfect. I naturally had to photograph her, and these are some of my favourite images.
Happy Monday folks, it has turned freezing here again, and we look forward to spring.




Fastelavn is the name for Carnival in Denmark and Norway which is either the Sunday or Monday before Ash Wednesday. Fastelavn evolved from the Roman Catholic tradition of celebrating in the days before Lent, but after Denmark became a Protestant nation, the holiday became less specifically religious. This holiday occurs seven weeks before Easter Sunday and is sometimes described as a Nordic Halloween, with children dressing up in costumes and gathering treats for the Fastelavn feast. The holiday is generally considered to be a time for children's fun and family games.
