christmas meal for 2

This year we decided to stay home for Christmas, just the two of us. 2016 has been a busy year full of challenges and changes and it felt good to take some time to relax, enjoy good food, read and discuss and play some board games. I made a vegetarian version of the traditional Karelian hot pot using pulled oats and gluten/free ginger bread adapting my grandmother’s recipe, a childhood favourite. We were lucky to have some snow for the weekend and we took our boots out for a walk in the forest.  Wishing everyone peaceful and heartwarming holidays ❤ Advertisements

Home and closet visit

Thank you Marina from La Petite Nina for the beautiful feature on your website. I actually realised that I haven’t taken so many pictures of my home myself; so take a look HERE. At the same time I’m happy and terrified as Marina captured our house on a normal day with some stuff there and a mess there; So don’t expect composed home magazine material but real life. P.S. I don’t know why I always look so serious in pictures, we did have loads of fun! 😉

a vasefull of cabbage

I entered the flower shop with a red autumn bouquet in mind and walked out with some cabbage. Ornamental cabbages love the cool weather and when the late autumn frost bites them, their center leaves begin to change color resulting in this beautiful shade of purple.
