Neon for autum

I really hope neon accents still will be in this autumn. I'm still in love with neon! Or will it just be the same old boring autumn colors?

Summer holiday

Summer holiday started. Almost three weeks without any plans. Awesome!

Yesterday I checked how our potatoes have been growing. Really good it seems!

Cranberry white chocolate cupcakes

I've started project emptying the freezer to have room for new fresh berries! I have some cranberries that I have saved and used for special occasions. Some in smoothies and also for cakes with cranberries and caramel sauce... Another combination I wanted to try was cranberries and white chocolate. Love the mix of super sweet from white chocolate and sour fresh cranberries.

I did plan to make a coconut-white chocolate frosting to top them with but it did turn out more of a sauce than a frosting and it didn't look pretty. Although it was really good. I have to work a bit more on that frosting before I share that recipe with you.

Here is the recipe for the cupcakes.

100g soft butter
1 1/4dl sugar
2 eggs (room temperature)
1/2dl coconut milk
1 tbsp vanilla sugar
11/4 tbsp salt
2 1/2dl flour
1 1/4 tbsp baking powder

100gr white chocolate
2dl cranberries

Mix the butter and sugar until its soft and creamy. Add one egg at a time and continue mixing. Add the coconut milk. Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Sift the dry ingredients carefully into the egg-butter mix. Add chopped white chocolate and cranberries. Spoon the mixture into paper cases until they are 2/3 full. I got 10 big cupcakes out of this.

Bake in 175c degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!

And so they were three...

I December we got a new family member, Echo. He is my new agility dog. I'm already competing with Imma. If you wan't to check our competitions out you can find them here on youtube. Assa the portuguese waterdog is just a beloved family member. :)

Granny coin purse

I made a bunch of new things for the craft fair in May (yeah I know almost two months ago)... A few new styles and designs. It was a hassle to get the purse frames for these but when I finally had them in my hands this is what I came up with.

Once again. Perfect use for scarp yarn and even fabric. This one is lined with white blue checked vintage fabric. Still available in my shop :)

Through instagram

Spring have been keeping me busy. We started renovating our bathroom in March. So much work although we're not doing it ourselves. Within a few days we will be able to use our new sauna so that is an awesome feeling! Preparing the garden for spring, doing garden work, training with the dogs, working on new items, work etc. I've started using instagram lately, you can find me here:

Missing you

I have been planning to get back to blogging again for SO long. So much have happened. Many big changes in my life during the last year.

Getting married
Starting a full time job as a teacher
A house of our own
A third furry family member

Can it even happen any more things in one year?

Now life is calmer and I have started to miss blogging.
I think I'm back.
We have tiny lake nowadays
