Fast food breakfast


This morning I treated my girls with a fastfood breakfast, but of course a more healthy option. The french fries are made of a jummie fresh mango, served with strawberry ketchup. I made a burger from 3 blueberry pancakes stacked on top of each other, it between I put some slices of mango (cheese) and strawberry (tomato) and topped it of with some black sesame seeds. Instead of a milkshake I made a strawberry smoothie to go with this fast food breakfast. The girls loved it and it is quite a simple breakfast to make and a great way to incorporate fruit in a kids meal.  Have a great weekend!

My studio

Last summer we started with my garden studio project and now it is almost ready, inside it was already finished ( well there are still some small things to do and make) but the outside needed some love and care too. The window was installed already a few months ago but I had to wait for dry and sunny weather to tidy it up and give the studio a fresh lick of paint.
Yesterday I spend the day painting and I'm so happy with the end result, I think I'm in love.....

Bonton


After my trip to paris I made a few little paintings from my favourite places and shops in Paris. I posted my painting of the Bonton photobooth on instagram where they saw it and liked it and reposted it on their acount so great! But the best part was that someone saw it and contacted me, she wanted a print of the painting to give to her husband on their  1st anniversary because he proposed to her in that photobooth!! Love that story! I love how social media works and how it connects people and stories.

Do you like green?

 

On my trip to Los Angeles we saw many cacti and visited a very pretty shop called the General store, the picture above was inspired by this shop and my trip to LA.

I made the little rug for the dolls out of an Ikea placemat a fun and easy project to make! I added the print with some textile paint and a sjablon I cut from paper. The little cactus paintings I made on tiny canvas board that I bought at a local art supply shop.


I'm not fond of the colour green but I love plants and the green colours they add to my interior. I didn't have plants in my house for a long time, I wanted them but they always died so at the end I just gave up hope and went for a plant free home but a little more than a year ago I tried again and yes some of the plants didn't make it but most of them did and I love having plants in my home.

Sweet sushi tutorial



For Mila's party we made sweet sushi, it was real fun to make, it tasted jummie and it looked really cute on the party table.

I've got some questions on how we made the sushi so I made a photo tutorial so you can make your own!


tip: don't know how to make buttercream here is a recipe




 tip:for rolling out the fondant I used a little bit of cornstarch so it would not stick onto the rolling pin or table, use only a little otherwise your fondant will look white instead of black



 tip: If the buttercream  is not soft enough to apply add a little bit of hot water and mix well




enjoy making and eating the sushi!!
