Sunshine and Inspiration

It has been a while since I wrote a blog, but the sun has been out, and I have made the most of it my trying to tidy my garden after the very long winter.  But last week this lovely magazine arrived and I thought I would share it with you.  It arrives from a lady in Germany who sells it through her website it arrives beautifully packed
And this is what is inside

If you like french nordic style then this is the magazine the photos are just lovely and so inspirational
A nostalgic hideout

And this oh so lovely place to write by hand a lovely letter to someone you love.
And what lovely roses, can't wait for them to be out in the garden

And a bedroom to dream in.

and a place to sit and read your favourite novel!

and  a lovely recipe for Rhubarb trifle I haven't tried it yet but here goes
500grams of Rhubarb
300 grams of Sugar
1 Vanilla bean
25 - 30 macaroons
1/4 litre of Cream

Rinse the rhubarb stems and cut them into pieces of two centimetres. Place them in a pot and add sugar and the vanilla.  Heat the rhubarb until tender.  The rhubarb will supply their own water.  Allow the mix to cool down and remove the vanilla bean. Whip the cream and place the rhubarb stew and crumbled macaroons in alternating layers in a bowl and finish it off with the whipped cream.  Decorate the whipped cream using edible lilacs. An alternative to this trifle is mixing the stewed rhubarb with strawberries.

Thank you once again for everyone that has encourage me to keep writing and if you do come across my blog then please leave your comments


  1. What a beautiful magazine, even if that isn't your favourite style the photography is just lovely. Shall have to have a look at it. And as we are rhubarb lovers (and growers) here, the recipe looks too good to resist. Thank you for sharing... isn't that one of the best things about blogging, the fact that we share information, news, chat, patterns, recipes, ideas? Keep up the blogging...
