I am so into backing sourdough bread these days. This little lump of sourdough starter I am keeping alive, given by a friend, feeding it frequently. Is actually quite fun. And every time it kind of turns out different. But still so good. The best thing is that I do not add commercial yeast. The homemade sourdough starter is sufficient for the rising.
Expecting guests for lunch. Keeping it simple. Using old and new. And I do have something beautiful and new in the house! These porcelain plates, Lys from Wik Walsøe, have been on my wish list for years. Such a delicate design. Simply beautiful. Bone porcelain with golden dots. I am in love. The plates are super flat which gives them a shape different to other plates.
Fresh bread, cheese, jam and some dried figs are being served today.
Setting the table for my birthday dinner today.
Having a few friends over. I do love birthdays!
The tablesetting is so easy. Roses in different pinks and peach, put in glass vases, glasses and bowls. A white tablecloth. White dishes. Keep it simple.
It`s good to get older. Wiser. Understand things I haven`t understood.
Feeling grateful today too. For life, friends & family, good heatlh. Having clothes to wear, food to eat. For peace in the streets. A roof over my head. And for finding joy in the simplest things!
Happy birthday to me!
And a lovely evening to you!
From Rosendal with love,
This spring, on a trip to New York, I had the most amazing meeting with a park in full bloom. The magnolias in Central Park.
What a sight! I`m over average fond of flowers.
This instagram picture just had to wind up on my wall over my carpenter bench. Adding a little sweet to the rustic!
