#Repost @linda_lomelino with @get_repost ・・・ I made this pie with an audience of 10+ people and their cameras clicking away 😆 It was so much fun to hear, I wish someone would have recorded it 🙈 I used Live's @melgaarden forced rhubarb to fill this pie, I've never seen rhubarb that pink before 💓 Also thank you all for your kind comments on my last post! 🙌🏼♥️ #pointsnorthworkshops

When simplicity is made into art... I love @linda_lomellino style. Her pies and cakes are unfluffed, genuine, delicious and beautiful. Watching her gently assemble a double crust rhubarb pie took me back to when I would spend hours observing my grandmother working her dough and making ravioli. There is something fascinating about hand work and I can't tire of watching. #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #artilleriet #callmecupcake #linda_lomellino #norway #scandinavianstyle #nordiccuisine #eatmoremagic #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #gastroart #theartofplating #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #gatheringslikethese #swedishkitchen #swedishfood #pies #rhubarb #rhubarbpie #f52grams #foodphotography #feedfeed #eeeeeats #huffposttaste #homemade #thekitchn

A typical everyday dinner @melgaarden during the Points North Workshop... Fell in love with @cottagefarm tablescaping and flower arrangements, this vase by @tinekhome, the beautiful linen by @magiclinen and the flatware by @sinnikaharmsceramics. I think they will all look gorgeous with my new cutlery set by @simonmarks from Jaipur and my grandfather Italian glassware. Cultural fusion is the essence of everything I am and I do, so let it be on the table as well! #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #artilleriet #botanicalpickmeup #norway #scandinavianstyle #tinek #magiclinen #eleganceintheeveryday #livemoremagic #eatmoremagic #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #gastroart #theartofplating #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #gatheringslikethese #tablescaping #tablesetting #adelasterfoodtextures #eventdesign #settingthetable #slowfloralstyle #flowerarranging #onthetable #ceramics #tableware

Here is Krissy of @cottagefarm working her magic with flowers at the Points North Workshop at @melgaarden in Norway. She made all look so effortless, putting together beautiful flower arrangements and chatting away about how she thought being a florist would be spending your days surrounded by green and blooms, sipping tea cups and floating thorugh the day and how mistaken she was as she soon realised when she actually started working. Krissy got me thinking. It's funny how most of us have a winding path behind us and very few just reached wherever they are following a straight road. We often seem in need of taking several detours to actually get to our happy place and many of us blame themselves and feel ashamed for it. Particularly in my home country, there is still a culture that wants you to know it all and get there efficiently. But it doesn't work like that for most of us. We need to experiment and discover what we really love doing all the things that turn out we don't love. And I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. All we do eventually comes together creating a very wide and complex set of skills where nothing is useless, no time was wasted, everything happened for a reason. Krissy florist past is a very important component of the stylist and photographer she is today. I think we should all remember this. I don't bore you with my past.... that was a long, winding, revolving road and I often feel it took me forever to get here. But I did and that all it counts. "Not all those who wander are lost".

Grape Leaf, white cheese, forced rhubarb and geranium minute jam - one of the countless courses cooked by the exceptionally talented Olivia of @adelasterfoodtexture for the welcome dinner of the Points North Workshop, hosted by Olivia, @linda_lomellino, @cottagefarm, @blackwhitevivid and @thebotanicalkitchen at @melgaarden. We dined on white asparagus soup, truffle toasts, wild forest rice and more and drank wild sodas and good wine. I can't stop thinking about the inspiration about this food style, so different from anything I have seen before and sooo good to photograph! Probably I should convince the wanderful Olivia and team to come and explore the Italian woods and see what new inspo that can bring! I am actually thinking about all the Mediterranean herbs and the wild flowers... . . . . . #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #artilleriet #adelasterfoodtextures #botanicalpickmeup #norway #scandinavianstyle #nordiccuisine #eatmoremagic #foraging #forager #wildherbs #wholefoodplantbased #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #gastroart #wildchefs #wildfoodlove #theartofplating #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #wildingredients #gatheringslikethese #swedishkitchen #swedishfood #plantbasedfood #edibleflowers #edibleflowersandleaves

The Points North Workshop at Melgaarden has been a discovery journey through a different approach to food which have taken me back to my early twenties, when I attended several kitchen courses, ONAF for cheese tasting and I obtained my diploma as wine taster with AIS (Italian Sommelier Association). Later on I moved to Kenya and opened an Italian Reastaurant, an Icecream Parlour and a safari lodge and run all those kitchens and had so much fun. Yep, there are a few things you might not know about me... Then life got in between, I forgot that my grandfather was a forager and a fisherman and had taught me so much about finding food in nature; that my grandmother had run her own restaurants most of her life and that food was such an important part of me that like so many others I had buried under my business woman uniform. This experience for me could have not come in a better time. The last year and a half is been a slow and painful process of self-discovery during which I had to strip each and every layers I had put on my skin and taken so much effort to absorb and make mine. What you don't know or realise is that when you put on a mask for so long it is hard then to find your face behind it and as much as you have confused others you have also played games on yourself. So another layer has come off. I remember now my passion for food, for discovering new ingredients and flavours, for exploring what is locally available and explore a culture and a land through its dishes and techniques. How food is sourced, preserved or served can tell so much about a place. I came home with my memories and with the enchantment I had lost, ready to go back there, to that other part of me that was astrain and is now back home. #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #botanicalpickmeup #norway #scandinavianstyle #nordiccuisine #eatmoremagic #foraging #forager #wildherbs #wholefoodplantbased #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #gastroart #wildchefs #wildfoodlove #theartofplating #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #wildingredients #gatheringslikethese #swedishkitchen #swedishfood #plantbasedfood #edibleflowers #edibleflowersandleaves

There are many tales from the recent Points North Workshop I have attended in Norway and it's even hard to decide where to start. Obviously we have been up to lots of styling, shooting, editing and as always we have been treated to the most deliciuous meals and afternoon teas. But let's talk about food to start. By the way, for the cake, and what cakes and pies they were, baked by the sweet Linda Lomellino (literally she is so sweet and no one better than her could be this dessert goodess she is), you will have to wait for another post. What you see here is one of the many dishes prepared by Olivia, aka @adelasterfoodtexture, notworthy not only because it is just beautifully presented and one of the best meals I have ever had, but because it has been a full discovery journey into lost and forgotten culinary traditions. Olivia's food is all about foraging and knowing what the forests or her surroundings can offer. Her kitchen develops around the flavours of wild herbs, flowers, vegetables and roots and because nature gifts are often available for such a short time she has rediscovered and reinterpreted ways of preserving all the flavours. Her cuisine is healthy, delicate, based on local and seasonal ingredients, respectful and sustainable, and utterly delicious. One of the best and most representative examples of Scandinavian cuisine and its present direction. I really hope she will find soon a way to share with us all her knowledge and I know she is working on it. In the meanwhile, if you want to sample a couple of her dishes, you can find them in the beautiful A journal of West Culinary available at @artilleriet. #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #artilleriet #adelasterfoodtextures #botanicalpickmeup #norway #scandinavianstyle #nordiccuisine #eatmoremagic #foraging #forager #wildherbs #wholefoodplantbased #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #gastroart #wildchefs #wildfoodlove #theartofplating #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #wildingredients #gatheringslikethese #swedishkitchen #swedishfood #plantbasedfood #edibleflowers #edibleflowersandleaves

The peonies in my garden all seemed to bloom while I was away... all that anticipation and then just like that they were gone... it’s like the build up to a big event... or a much anticipated trip... the planning... the excitement of the buildup then before you know it you’re talking about it in the past tense... already this was a week ago... a golden memory of flowers in the summerhouse @melgaarden and Krissy @cottagefarm looking radiant by the window.., holding a bunch of peonies. I’m sure there’s a very famous quote about using the cake and eating all the best china... or something like that... and I’m all over that 👌🏻✨ Happy Friday x . . . . . #realflowersoftheseason #inspiredbypetals #thefloralseasons #moodforfloral #petalsandprops #alltheprettyflorals #dsfloral #petalperfection #allthingsbotanical #botanicaltales #faffingwithflowers #gatheringslikethese #myfloraldays #botanicalpickmeup #justbefloral #botanicaldaydreams #slowfloralstyle #floralfridaycompetition #floralwaltz #poetryofsimplethings #floralfridays #thesimplethings #exploretocreate #theartofgathering #beautyintheeveryday #pointsnorthworkshops #caughtflowerhanded

our picnic lunch on the lawn during the workshop - simple sandwiches wrapped in brown paper, a big leafy green salad and fruit salad simply dressed with honey, olive oil and lemon verbena from the kitchen garden linens from @magiclinen layered on on top of another in the grass and our trusty @tinekhome basket loaded with all the essentials I can’t think of a nicer way to spend and afternoon- even if we ended up huddling under the shade of the little birch tree in order to escape the intense norwegian sun . . . . . #pointsnorthworkshops #norway #summerpicnic #gatheringslikethese #pursuepretty #lifeandthyme #alfresco #momentsofmine #myeverydaymagic #cntravelereats #countryliving #thehappynow #verytandc #rslove #exploretocreate #simplepleasures #simplejoys #summervibes #momentslikethese

Vanilla cake with lilac syrup and white chocolate matcha frosting by @linda_lomelino This time last week was so much fun and I didn't want the day to end. Effortless elegance and never ending inspiration, so glad I could witness both in one person. When you think you are going to keep it together and plan to act cool around your hero, it seldom happens. I might have cried a little bit when I hugged her a few times (I blame all the glasses of wine), Tears of overwhelming joy and happiness of meeting someone who you admire a lot.

a master at work. the incredibly talented @linda_lomelino during her baking demo from our points north workshop . . im in awe of the talented women I have been able to work along side this last week & all our wonderful guests - inspiring me to do more, an move forward in my own creative path. I love this moment frozen in time as she worked, measuring flour for the most sublime rhubarb pie we all shared later in the afternoon. slices passed as we huddled around computers practicing editing with our guest and sipping hot black coffee in the cool norwegian afternoon . . #pointsnorthworkshops #cottagefarmworkshop #eleganceintheeveryday #morningslikethese #howissummer #pursuepretty #portraitphotography #thebakefeed #baker #livebeautifully #nothingisordinary #flashesofdelight #creativelifehappylife #darlingmovement #verilymoment #theeverygirl #calledtobecreative

The beautiful debris... those bits we gather up to tidy away or even throw out...?! Sometimes they are just as beautiful as the bigger picture they were meant to convey.... This was my last photograph of our personal styling sessions last week at Melgården. I’m not going to lie, as is often the case it took me a while to warm up to this... it’s an organic process and it’s often towards the end of styling a photo that I get into my flow and everything begins to feel right... not always easy with my usual short playgroup window... but when there’s time to play... well anything is possible. This bowl is the leftover debris of those sessions... gathered and tidied by Didi @picturethatfood who was with me in the summerhouse and who was a pleasure to work alongside because not only is she an amazing photographer she’s quietly supportive and encouraging too... I’m also forever grateful to her for showing me that there is indeed an anti mosquito app...!! . . . . . #communityovercompetition #inspiredbynature_ #seekinspirecreate #petalsandprops #styleitpretty #botanicalbits #seekinspiration #distractionsandinspirations #beautyofstillmoments #embracingtheseasons #seeingthepretty #seasonspoetry #momentsofmine #simpleauthenticbeautiful #curatednature #botanicalcreativity_ #botanicalforagersunitedsocietyinc #allthingsbotanical #simplethingsmadebeautiful #botanicaltales #faffingwithflowers #botanicalpickmeup #pointsnorthworkshops #stylingtheseasons #ofquietmoments #simplenaturefinds #slowandsimpledays #asimplestill #abeautifulmess #rusticgamestrong

More lilacs. Absolute love those three kind, the white, the soft purple and the dark purple variety. So well..... let’s call it bit of lilac spam in my feed then.⠀ Here all three varieties together in one single shot of the lilac sugar styled by the Linda @linda_lomelino One of my favorite shots from the workshop in Norway last week. And could you blame me? Beside that wonderful smell you get a delicious syrup as well. ⠀ Did I mention to you that I love lilacs? 🤔🤫🧐probably not, but yes I do!! ⠀ ⠀ Happy Wednesday💜💜⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #pointsnorthworkshops #lilac #lilacsugar #lilacs #lilacseason #fortheloveoflilacs #norway #seasonalfood #darkfoodphotography #lowkeyphotography #fromwhereistand #minimal #still_life_gallery #thatsdarling #picturethatfood #chocolate #foodphotography #foodphotographyworkshop #darktablemood #foodfluffer #fromwhereistand #beautifulmess ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

I learned recently that the wild lilac smells stronger than the lilac flowers I normally buy from the flower shops, so this week will be searching for the wild one in the forest nearby. Lilac sugar and a wonderful way to remember the smell of flowers for a long time.

For me the workshop was about learning and challenge myself. I think that’s why I learned so much. I just kept trying new things. New ways to shoot, different settings and other angles. I have to smile when I think of this, because at some moments I was laying on a dirty floor or sitting really NOT charming to take the perfect photo. Yeah, it’s not always easy.. This is a perfect example of trying another angle. This shot was taken during the baking demo from @linda_lomelino and I think I was squatting at this moment. You have to imagine 10 people around one table constantly clicking photos and trying to be not in each others way. Really funny. What do you think of this angle? And a lot of negative space in this photo, yay or nay? . . . #photographing #pointsnorthworkshops #lindalomelino #moodygrams #moodyphotography #darkphotography #darkfoodphotography #moodyfoodphotography #f52food #f52grams #lightroom #eeeeats #foodstyling #styleonmytable #thebakefeed #savourmag #foodandwine @foodfluffer #photooftheday #hautecuisines #beautifulcuisines #chef_cooking_lovers #brabantcelebratesfood #hocsupperclub #darktablemood

a basket filed with the spoils of our gathering expedition. Live @melgaarden and I set out to see exactly what was in bloom around the fields and in the old garden, marking the spot where a house once stood . . Lilac in three shades, arm loads of cow parsley, wild raspberry and birch branches all made it into our baskets . . both of us changeling our mutual love of Constance Spry we set about turning humble field flowers into arrangements for the house and tables in the day ahead of the workshop.

This is a lovely scene, isn’t it? What you see here is lilac sugar. I never made it before, but I will now for sure! Learned so much about using flours and plants in food. The biggest surprise to me was pineapple weed. It really tastes like pineapple, so amazing! I’m going to try some new things this week. You have to wait a little bit longer for a new recipe, sorry for that! I can’t work forward, because when I’m enthousiastic about a recipe I want to share it immediatly. So I don’t have anything ready yet. Going to write a blog about the workshop to tide you over in the mean time, how sounds that?! Also if you haven’t tried my brownie recipe yet, you should!

So much has thrived in the garden in recent weeks. Not least the grape vine with its masses of fresh green leaves and curling tendrils that give an ‘ Audrey 2’ look about it as it steadily climbs up and over the pergola. I’ve been eying it up all day, scissors at the ready to snip a few leaves for something tasty... no doubt inspired by the recent botanical concoctions we were treated to at the recent #pointsnorthworkshops in Norway. This dish, one of many incredible courses at our welcome dinner by @adelasterfoodtextures , of grape leaf, soft cheese, forced rhubarb minute jam and geranium leaf just blew me away with its simple exquisite taste and beautiful styling... I’ve been dying to make something with all the grape leaves from the vine for a few years ... I feel motivated and inspired to give it a go now!

a beautiful series of summery al fresco lunches these last few workshop days here in Norway . . It’s a rare opportunity to suspend time, sit together at the table as a group and enjoy the company of likeminded creatives, good food and the subtle but invigorating puffs of the north winds. There really is something special about meals outside . . It’s these moments in our workshops I relish, once the styling and cooking and photographing are done (though I love all those things dearly) there is a chance to relax with our guest, hear their stories and questions and share their experiences - I often find myself taking a second just to listen to the sounds of chatter and glassware and forks on plates .

Tea and flowers is always a good way to start the week. I’m catching up with both this Monday... I mainly drank coffee last week because... well I think most tea drinkers are fussy about their brew and it never really tastes right unless it’s from your own teapot... so I drank coffee. It’s much cooler today which I’m grateful for and so I’m planning on slipping back into that usual daily routine slowly... sipping tea, filling the house with blooms from the garden... unpacking... contemplating and reflecting on the week past... sipping tea... did I say that...?! 😉 Have a great Monday x . . . . . . #slowandsimpledays #livethelittlethings #homeisacupoftea #domesticforaging #myseasonalstory #abeautifulmess #the_gentle_manifesto #morningslikethese #thesimplethings #pointsnorthworkshops #theartofgathering #slowfloralstyle #alovefornaturesbest #searchwandercollect #beautyintheeveryday #daysofsmallthings #mybeautifulsimplicity #simplethingsmadebeautiful #ofquietmoments #capturequiet #smallmomentsofcalm #theslowdowncollective #botanicaltales #byarrangement #forprettysake #pursuepretty #gatheredstyle #adoremycupoftea #makealistmonday

This lemon juice looks almost like pearls. The cake demo from @linda_lomelino was so much fun to shoot and informative! We learned how to photograph flour, sugar, rhubarb and lemon juice, which is harder then you might think in a shadowy place. Can’t wait to try these things at home!

Seeing all the lilacs still in bloom in Norway has made me regret not picking them this spring while they were still in bloom in the UK. The season seemed even shorter than usual this year... or perhaps I just took them too much for granted... In past years I’ve made syrup and sugars with them but barely even managed a posy gathering this year. So I took to the garden with my slightly rusty secateurs and got on with the necessary task of dead heading the roses , which inevitably lead to a gathering of rose petals to dry out for use in the kitchen... so all is not lost....it never really is, is it... there’s always something new about to bloom this time of year.. the trick is learning how to preserve it! 🌿 . . . . . . #realflowersoftheseason #thefloralseasons #inspiredbypetals #alltheprettyflorals #petalsandprops #moodforfloral #dsfloral #thebotanicalseries #botanicalforagersunitedsocietyinc #myfloraldays #embracingtheseasons #petalperfection #gatheredstyle #botanicalbits #allthingsbotanical #faffingwithflowers #onthetable #simplenaturefinds #botanicalpickmeup #botanicaldaydreams #beautyofstillmoments #justbefloral #eatprettythings #fromabove #simplethingsmadebeautiful #slowfloralstyle #pointsnorthworkshops #asimplestill #edibleflowers

I’m sat at the Opera House in Oslo, sipping coffee and eating an expensive muffin 😬 It’s my last morning in Norway and it’s no surprise I’ve gravitated here. I’m always drawn to the theatre, how does that expression go... ‘you can take the girl out of ....’ I always thought I’d always work in the theatre... but now I see I’ve been captivated by another way to capture a scene.... seeing the theatre of everyday life... the messy scenes we leave, the gatherings....the tea cup left on the kitchen table, the handwritten notes scattered... the posy of wildflowers just picked...the apron hanging on the wall... Tonight I shall cuddle my littlies, make a large pot of tea and think about the week gone by... tomorrow I think I might reach for the apron left hanging on the wall and see what creative mess...scene... I can leave behind in the kitchen! . . . . . #simpleauthenticbeautiful #seekinspirecreate #seeingthepretty #pursuepretty #mystoryoflight #postitfortheaesthetic #styleitpretty #momentsofmine #stylingtheseasons #distractionsandinspirations #bevisuallyinspired #forprettysake #visualsoflife #theslowdowncollective #capturequiet #ofquietmoments #smallmomentsofcalm #thesincerestoryteller #thatauthenticfeeling #simplethingsmadebeautiful #beautyofstillmoments #dslooking #aquietcorner #rusticstyle #aquietstyle #darlingweekend #rusticgamestrong #pointsnorthworkshops #behomefree_light #collectedsaturday

Waiting on my flight back home. I slept terrible last night. So many dreams that passed by. There’s so much happened the last couple of days and I think my brain needs to recover a bit, even when it were only good things. I made this shot from @linda_lomelino after she gave a baking demo.

WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT: In the middle of summer, with the endless light of the northern hemisphere me @cottagefarm And @linda_lomelino Are hosting another workshop! This time we will be at a place from another time that tells a story of another way of life, close to nature, close to the season and to raising your own food from seed and gathering from the forest and lakes. @melgaarden the house feels like a living thing to me and its mistress Live is lovingly caring for it by restoring it to it's 1877 splendor and reversing the garden to things that grew here in 1877. I chose the table to announce because my best memories from The Gotland workshop happened around the dinner table. More exciting news soon • • • • • #theartofslowliving #seekthesimplicity #verilymoment #aquietstyle #feelfreefeed #thatauthenticfeeling #littlestoriesofmylife #inspiremyinstagram #lifeandthyme #momentsofmine #postitfortheaesthetic #feedfeed #workshop #gatheringslikethese #f52grams #woodworking #morningslikethese #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #pursuepretty #pointsnorthworkshops #darlingmovement #worksafe #injuryfree #safetymeeting #forest #refinery #ibew #foodphotography #gathering

Me, @linda_lomelino, @thebotanicalkitchen, @blackwhitevivid arrived at @melgaarden.......I was so looking forward to making stories AND THEN my phone broke ( aka my camera 🎥) I took it as a sign ! The "creative food block" 🌚 had some new plans for me! Perhaps it was to dust of my "real" camera, I have been struggling with the extra time it takes to share that way. Perhaps it was to empty me and make me think differently? I am letting my creativity roam a little and I'm still tiptoeing around food not to scare it of again. Lucky for me these girls know a thing or two about food ;) So you won't go hungry from my feed for a while jet 🌗 • • • • #feedfeed #theartofslowliving #f52grams #seekthesimplicity #lifeandthyme #verilymoment #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #eeeeeats #aquietstyle #thatauthenticfeeling #heresmyfood #feelfreefeed #momentsofmine #onmytable #beautifulcuisines #thekitchn #littlestoriesofmylife #inspiremyinstagram #foodandwine #forkyeah #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #postitfortheaesthetic #onthetable #yahoofood #pursuepretty #slowliving #buzzfeedfood #pointsnorthworkshops

I read @_goodoldfashioned beautifully written blog today and it just made me want to go back to Gotland, the rock house, creative minds and conversations around the dinner table.....then @blackwhitevivid made me blush with her gorgeous post, it's been a pure pleasure watching the images coming out of both your feeds and blog! Your both stars and you completed your 9 images in just 4 fast days with very little computer time. That was impressive to me and now to someone else......that might need your fast and flawless eyes soon 👀 ❤️🚙 #swedishsol #workshop #travelling #visitgotland #feedfeed #theartofslowliving #photography #pointsnorthworkshops

@linda_lomelino During a pie demonstration in Gotland. Some people are a pure joy to be around! ❤️ This is one of them and ( happy sharing letters with you Linda 💫 ) I find it incredibly interesting when 10 photographers find themselves in the same room and they take fotos of the same person/event/setting! You can get 10 photos and guess they haven't even been in the same room......all those eyes finding different perspective 👀 based from their unique traits, esthetics and experiences #inspiremyinstagram #workshop #pie #dessert #pears #theweekoninstagram #aquietstyle #gatheringslikethese #seekthesimplicity #gatheredstyle #mybeautifulmess #bevisuallyinspired #wildfoodlove #momentsofmine #livethelittlethings #feelfreefeed #thelifestylecollective #pointsnorthworkshops #gastroart #theartofplating #food52 #tv_living #tv_lifestyle #swedishsol

Urgude- The white farmhouse we lived at on Gotland! I am pretty sure that every corner of this beautiful place is firmly ingrained in my mind by now. And by the sounds of things this place started a few people on completely new roads. I found it extra exciting reading @_goodoldfashioned blog post yesterday about how this place changed her and sent her on a new path! ❤️ #inspiremyinstagram #workshop #farmhouse #gotland #visitgotland #theweekoninstagram #aquietstyle #gatheringslikethese #seekthesimplicity #gatheredstyle #mybeautifulmess #visitsweden #bevisuallyinspired #wildfoodlove #momentsofmine #livethelittlethings #feelfreefeed #thelifestylecollective #feedfeed #gastroart #theartofplating #food52 #tv_living #tv_lifestyle #underthefloralspell #pointsnorthworkshops #swedishsol

Making carrot cake by this north facing window was too pretty not to document ✨ Wish I could take it back home with me! #swedishsol #pointsnorthworkshops
