Wednesdays past were a relatively quiet affair, a chance for me to catch up with stuff, have lunch with a friend and hang out watching movies with the littlest one. These new school year Wednesdays are a totally different fish and I seem to have been run ragged all day with multiple pick ups, footy kits, swim kits, piano books.... etc. I did have a brief sit down amidst it all and a moment to catch up with @linda_lomelino blog post about the Norway retreat I went to back in June. So cathartic on a chaotic day to recollect all the little creative moments of this inspiring retreat, captured beautifully through Linda’s lens. . . . . . . #seekinspirecreate #livemoremagic #foodphotography #feedfeed #pointsnorthworkshops #distractionsandinspirations #mystoryoflight #flashesofdelight #theslowdowncollective #littlestoriesofmylife #heitermoments #tablescene #aquietcorner #behomefree_light #kindredmoments #darkandmoody #midweekcakelove #itsamoodywednesday #thebakefeed #momentslikethese #moodygrams #butfirstcake #darktablemood #kinfolk #livefolk #tablescape #momentsofwonder #thatauthenticfeeling #onthetable

It seems quite the eternity since last I ventured around here yet I fear an apology would be remiss. It’s not with indifference that retreated of course but I do wonder sometimes why we feel the need to justify ourselves so often and will such self flagellation. To be frank the summer was wickedly distracting and for the sake of a little self indulgence and contemplation I ran with offline life for a moment. Naturally it was carefree and adventurous but once you’ve come to know what exists here in this place; the online world I fear you’re tethered indefinitely - it’s elasticity reels you in again and again. . . . . . #thebotanicalkitchen #theartofgathering #mytinyatlas #theartofslowliving #momentsofmine #mystoryoflight #littlestoriesofmylife #pursuepretty #seekthesimplicity #pointsnorthworkshops

Okay, I have to admit I have a problem. We’re on an amazing holiday right now and I’m the most happy about... a cookie recipe 🙈🤣 We stayed at the most lovely B&B ever (I will tell later more about it) and I had the best shortbread I’ve ever tasted. I’m searching for a perfect recipe for a while now (it’s my bf favorite cookie) and just couldn’t find it. Until now... So I asked with my loveliest smile if I could have the recipe. Luckily she wanted to share it with me and I can even share it with you on my blog! Yayy!!! So when I’m this will be the first thing I’m going to do. Bake cookies! Yeah I know I’m addicted but I love it 💕 . . . . #moodygrams #moodyphotography #darkphotography #darkfoodphotography #moodyfoodphotography #f52food #f52grams #lightroom #eeeeats #foodstyling #styleonmytable #thebakefeed #savourmag #foodandwine @foodfluffer #photooftheday #hautecuisines #beautifulcuisines #chef_cooking_lovers #brabantcelebratesfood #hocsupperclub #darktablemood #pointsnorthworkshops

One good thing of taking photographs is that they hold so many beautiful memories, wouldn't you agree? Like this one.⠀ In my eyes the perfect swirl of sugar sprinkling by the lovely Linda @linda_lomelino. A little throwback to the Norway workshop I attended last June. ⠀ ⠀ Hope your week is going good so far. I'm still waiting for a package to arrive and meanwhile sorting out my props since I'm stuck at home😏⠀ Oops I really got way to many after so years of collecting🙈 and a big part of them I don't use anymore. Sounds familiar? Wondering what I should do with them. Sell them or keep them? Hard decisions to make.....🤔🤫⠀ ⠀ Happy Tuesday everyone😊💛⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #norway #baking #bakingtime #instabake #homebaking #sugar #sugarplay #actionshot #loveactionshots #pointsnorthworkshops #darkmoodphotography #foodpic #darkmood #foodlover #foodphotography #momentslikethese #capturethemoment #snapshot #exposure #focus #pics #feedfeed #f52grams #beautifulcuisines #foodgram #foodshare #foodspotting #darktablemood #foodfluffer #picturethatfood

One of the most important aspects of a healthy diet is to know what you are eating and cooking food at home, being in control of the ingredients and possibly know where they come from and how they were farmed is key. In a world where we are rushed more and more, where the demands on our times are almost unrealistic and where we are proposed more and more processed food, ready made meals, chopped garlic and onions and whatever else you can think of and more, I think there is something magical about getting back to raw ingredients and take the time to cook a meal from scratch. I dare say it is a healing process, an act of self care for yourself and your loved ones that makes it worth being shifted in the priority side of the daily to do list. ⠀ ⠀ It’s taking control and leading just when we are pulled in all directions. It’s listening to our bodies and their ancient wisdom, yes even when they crave a lovely pie! ⠀ ⠀ Here the gentle hands of @lindalomelino are doing the magic with the home grown rhubarb from @melgaarden. A soothing memory I go back from time to time for a calming and reassuring moment.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #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

Good morning! Probably you are getting bored of these action shots but I don’t! So.... I’m very sorry but here another action shot with the lovely Linda @linda_lomelino being the perfect model and doing her thing with flour from the #pointsnorthworkshops in Norway.⠀ I really miss that beautiful Norwegian light.

Swedish sugar cake, baked by @linda_lomelino at #pointsnorthworkshops in Norway back at the beginning of June. A beautiful memory of those balmy summer evenings as it’s all very grey and gloomy here this week. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m up north or because the weather has now actually shifted ... . . . . . . #embracingtheseasons #onthetable #seasonspoetry #foodphotography #theartofgathering #feedfeed #gatheringslikethese #foodfluffer #livemoremagic #hautescuisines #tastingtable #makeitdelicious #firstweeat #seasonaleats #tablescape #eatprettythings #tablescene #aseasonalshift #midsummer #huffposttaste #sweetcuisines #nordicstyle #foodandflowers #cakeporn #midweekcakelove #simpleandsweet #butfirstcake

The moment I saw @adelasterfoodtextures last post and read it she took me back to @melgaarden . I keep wanting to share everything I did there and the feeling it gave me. It really changed me. A door has opened and I never want to close it again. I felt happiness. I felt like I came home in the feeling of love for nature, photography and traveling. This is one of my favorite shots I took there of @linda_lomelino . The peace on her face represents how I felt there. Calm and happy ✨ . . . . #moodygrams #moodyphotography #darkphotography #darkfoodphotography #moodyfoodphotography #f52food #f52grams #lightroom #eeeeats #foodstyling #styleonmytable #thebakefeed #savourmag #foodandwine @foodfluffer #photooftheday #hautecuisines #beautifulcuisines #chef_cooking_lovers #brabantcelebratesfood #hocsupperclub #darktablemood #pointsnorthworkshops

Thank you for all your encouragement on my “Wild edibles guide” - Wow ! I ‘m bunching a few things that came up in DM ‘s and answering it here now and promise to answer the things I don’t answer now in the next few days. 1, will there be more ? Yes absolutely! 2, how did you learn? - ( yes I know 🙈 the classic- grandma 👵 who lived through 2 world wars and by slow research ) 3, Can I add more info on what parts to use ? Yes, I could do that 🤔 but so many words that I think it will have to be blogg format 4, will I share wild recipes? I already do! But maybe i’ll add more now { any particular wild recipes your interested in ??? Question from me to you } 5, can you save the guide in highlights - yes for all you that can access highlights- it will be under “summer things” - then the next lot will go into “ autumn things” and so on! Next year I’ll add in the old highlights! #wildfoodlove #foraging #gathering #theartofslowliving #pointsnorthworkshops #food52 #feedfeed #gastroart #theartofplating #expertfoods

Again one of my action shots from the Norway workshop. ⠀ On the picture the lovely Linda @linda_lomelino playing with flour while preparing that delicious rhubarb pie that she made and we devoured afterwards.⠀ ⠀ The last two days I had the opportunity to spend some time in the lovely and fun company of Rodica @rodica_godlewski and Ros @her_dark_materials who visited Amsterdam. It was an absolute pleasure to hang out with these two talented ladies and being a tourist in my own city. ⠀ Isn't it just great to meet up with like minded people from IG?⠀ ⠀ Hope everyone is ready to jump into a relaxing weekend. ⠀ ⠀ Happy weekend everyone!💛⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #pointsnorthworkshops #norway #baking #bakingtime #flour #foodpic #foodphotography #foodlover #feedfeed #f52grams #foodlover #eeeeeats #foodpic #beautifulcuisines #hautescuisines #foodgram #foodshare #foodspotting #foodfluffer #saveurmag #capture #moment #exposure #composition #gallery #foodpics #focus #color #pictureoftheday #picturethatfood ⠀ ⠀

Polly put the kettle on..... my littlest one is an enthusiastic singer of nursery rhymes and likes to belt out one of the classics on a daily... no, hourly basis. It’s golden moments like this that are giving wind to my somewhat fragile and crooked wings* as we stumble though this slightly challenging week, no doubt falling in a heap into the encroaching summer hols. ✨ If you look closely at this image you can just make out the shadowy reflections of a group of keen photographers, backs against the wall legs poised in an awkwardly bent position, determinedly snapping away at the table of florals in front of us. A fond memory.... and a little glimmer amongst the shadows. ✨ * I’m totally fine... just over emotional about a lack of sleep and functioning dishwasher 😬 . . . . . . #poetryofsimplethings #botanicalbits #gatheredstyle #seekinspirecreate #alovefornaturesbest #pointsnorthworkshops #allthingsbotanical #livemoremagic #distractionsandinspirations #simpleauthenticbeautiful #simplenaturefinds #beautyofstillmoments #botanicalforagersunitedsocietyinc #propstyling #botanicalpickmeup #theslowdowncollective #botanicalcreativity_ #littlestoriesofmylife #momentsofmine #flashesofdelight #botanicaldaydreams #thesincerestoryteller #natureonthepage #curatednature #kindredmoments #aquietstyle_shadow #rusticgamestrong #itsamoodywednesday #tablescene

I did it 🙌🏻 as in started the “Wild edible guide” for summer in my stories. If you LOVE it then I will add more over time and save them in my highlights under “summer things”! My favorite thing to make at the moment is wild sodas, the variations seem endless. I got one infusing now with pineapple herb, meadow sweet, blackcurrant leafs, lemon and the last of the linden flowers. Literary like drinking a summer meadow 🍃 I made some different wild sodas for the workshop but using syrup instead of infusion, that makes them more intense. • • • • • #theartofslowliving #feedfeed #theartofplating #f52grams #lifeandthyme #verilymoment #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #eeeeeats #aquietstyle #gastroart #heresmyfood #feelfreefeed #foodphotograpy #onmytable #beautifulcuisines #thekitchn #littlestoriesofmylife #inspiremyinstagram #foodandwine #livethelittlethings #forkyeah #sweetfoods #postitfortheaesthetic #onthetable #yahoofood #pointsnorthworkshops #slowliving #wildfoodlove #buzzfeedfood

thinking back on this dreamy summer lunch from our Norway workshop- we nibbles on cheese pies, wild rice salads, tender green lettuces piled with garden herbs and little slivers of various cakes to end the meal - . . I love this little moment of the afters, the spirit of the table and the gathering is still very much alive in this image though guests have departed . . . it’s this sort of magic that I love, creating spaces and tables which are beautiful is amazing but I love seeing them activated, lived-in and loved just as much as seeing them in that perfect moment just before guests are seated .

Home always sings to your heart, regardless of how beautiful it was where you have been when you were away. ⠀ ⠀ Au revoir Tuscany. I hope to be back soon. Hello Milan. Here only for three days but so happy to be home. ⠀ ⠀ This image is, as a matter of fact, from someone else’s beautiful home, taken at @melgaarden during the #pointsnorthworkshops last month. Just made me think how important it is to have a place to call home. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #norway #scandinavianstyle #eleganceintheeveryday #livemoremagic #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #cello #cellos #homesweethome #nowherelikehome #homecoming #homelife #milan #milano #milanomia #milano❤️ #casadolcecasa #cominghome

To start the summer in the beginning of June, with some of the most inspiring and talented women in the food and photography world, and other women like me as guests, has really been a mind blowing experience for me. I’m so full of inspiration, ideas, knowledge and a will to do changes. From the small details in the food, to the big thoughts and feedback from them and all the participants. It all meant so much to me. It may seem a bit simple, but even a lemonade made of vernal grass soda and elderflower, like this, is changing my everyday life this summer. I’m making my own lemonades, experimenting with taste and mixing ingredients like I’ve never done before. And it works! My family loves it, my friends love it, and it’s making me proud and happy. @linda_lomelino is pouring the amazing lemonade, @adelasterfoodtextures made it, and @melgaarden are hosting in the greenhouse. And I’m sure that @cottagefarm @thebotanicalkitchen @blackwhitevivid also made this particular gathering so amazing! ———————————————#thanks #thankful #inspired #stillstarstrucked #greatful #formidabelexpo #formidabelfoto #drinks #lemonade #greenhouse #melgaarden #pointsnorthworkshops #elderflower #vernalgrass #

Im working on my edible ocean guide, I found a delicious one today. I’m also doing something extremely odd - I’m on an old fashioned holiday were I do very little. 🙈 it’s awesome, swim four times a day awesome and I’m obsessed with making a rock-beach into a sand beach, almost meditative caring away all the rocks. The winter storms will probably bring all the rocks back but for now I see myself as an ‘Crouching tiger, hidden dragon’ type monk that just keeps making patterns in the sand. Here is our prop cupboard from the Norway workshop, it contains second hand purchases from 5 country’s along with some gorgeous linnen by @magiclinen beautiful ceramics from @sinikkaharmsceramics a few stunning pieces from @tinekhome ! This was for the free creative lesson at @melgaarden - one of my favorite lessons because I so enjoy seeing a creative minds own personality emerge. I’m putting a few favorite images from the free creative lesson in my stories over the next few days. • • • • • #theartofslowliving #seekthesimplicity #verilymoment #aquietstyle #thatauthenticfeeling #feelfreefeed #momentsofmine #littlestoriesofmylife #food52 #lifeandthyme #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #postitfortheaesthetic #wildfoodlove #slowliving #bareaders #morningslikethese #onmytable #tastemade #instafeast #rslove #commontable #darlingmovement #gatheringslikethese #momentslikethese #realsimple #vscocook #pointsnorthworkshops #heresmyfood #feedfeed

Already looking foward to make this lilac sugar next year. How beautiful is this? I love the way it looks and the way it smells. This scene was styled by @linda_lomelino at the photography workshop and it was amazing, even from different angles. Do you have any experience with flavored sugars? I haven’t but would love to try it!

Something about this image that wants to trow you back in time a hundred years. I think I see the times I didn’t get to live through rose colored glasses. Don’t get me wrong, our times have greatness about-it too ( like being able to travel great distance several times during your life ) but for me the past always had a strange appeal. There is something about streetlights lit by hand, or riding an animal to cover great distance or that cultures become vastly different since traveling is an extreme undertaking without motors or real materials or hand-painted street-signs...I love it all and at @melgaarden you almost feel like you enter the time zone of the past. It was an experience I will treasure always and search for again when we design future workshops. You see @cottagefarm walking in towards the 1920s here in this scene that she so gorgeously created ! • • • • • #feedfeed #theartofslowliving #norway #f52grams #seekthesimplicity #norge #lifeandthyme #verilymoment #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #eeeeeats #visitnorway #aquietstyle #thatauthenticfeeling #heresmyfood #feelfreefeed #momentsofmine #onmytable #beautifulcuisines #oslo #thekitchn #littlestoriesofmylife #inspiremyinstagram #foodandwine #forkyeah #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #postitfortheaesthetic #mittnorge #pointsnorthworkshops

Wish lilacs could bloome the whole year! I made this photo at the photography workshop in Norway during my free creative time. I still miss this barn and it’s beautiful light. So weird the light here in the Netherlands is so different from the light in Norway. Who can explain me that? ✨ Today I’ve made an ice cream cake and it’s now in the freezer.

The last days in the city seem never ending. Summer is calling and I can’t wait to spend my time outdoor, exploring and having picnics on the grass.⠀ ⠀ I have been busy planning an epic tour of Italy for this summer. Can’t wait to share all the itineraries, places we will be staying and what we planned to visit soon. Still kinda of finalising some details... not easy to put together an almost two months long tour! ⠀ ⠀ This was taken during the #pointsnorthworkshops picnic staged, styled and prepared by @cottagefarm and the talented crew who hosted us. Dessert was a super yummy rhubarb pie by @linda_lomellino⠀ ⠀ Not sure my picnics will look this good though! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #botanicalpickmeup #norway #scandinavianstyle #tinek #magiclinen #eleganceintheeveryday #livemoremagic #eatmoremagic #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #gastroart #theartofplating #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #gatheringslikethese #tablescaping #tablesetting #eventdesign #settingthetable #slowfloralstyle #flowerarranging #onthetable #ceramics #tableware #callmecupcake #picnics

This crazy light, a photographer's dream come true. We had a beautiful lesson on preservation and canning of food by @adelasterfoodtextures in this very room. Preservation of food has lost its charm these days but thanks to many of us who still believe in it, it is coming back. I grew up in a town where there was no MacDonald's or supermarket. There was no concept of packaged food, everything was organic by default. Grapes we buy these days don't wrinkle for weeks and they are available all year round which is just not normal to my mind. My grandparents used to preserve jackfruits, sweet potatoes and mangoes with different techniques like pickling, fermentation, sundrying etc. I used to help out in my summer vacation as a kid and it brought me such joy reliving those moments every year with them. My Grandma and Mum still use this technique even today and we have tasty meals in winter whilst thinking of wonderful memories of mango stained clothes. #poetryofsimplethings . . . . . #pointsnorthworkshops #chasinglight #onelifetobake #appetitejournal #ourfoodstories #slowandseasonal #aquietstyle #searchwandercollect #lifeandthyme #seekinspirecreate #seekthesimplicity #visualstorytelling #verilymoment #themoodybeautiful #lifewellcaptured #littlestoriesofmylife #lifeunscripted #aseasonalshift #slownaturemoments #seeingthepretty #calmversation #pursuepretty #theweekoninstagram #smallmomentsofcalm #cornersofmyworld #allwhatsbeautiful #myeverydaymagic #kinfolklife

I like it simple..... ⠀ So when we got to do some free work at the Norway workshop, with the most amazing prop cabinet you can ever imagine (see more in my stories) I got drawn to the gorgeous wooden floor of that old house. Together with my favorite bowl of @sinikkaharmsceramics I ended up with this shot. My favorite for sure from all the pictures I made. Monochromatic and real simple💛⠀ ⠀ If you want to see more of the free work we did during the workshop, I will put some amazing work from some of the participants on my stories as well in a minute #sharethelove Totally different from mine. But Yay for creativity🎉🎉🎉😉⠀ ⠀ The weather is just gorgeous here and I’m going to plant some things I bought for my wannabe garden (cornflowers, more borage, more nasturtiums, cherry tomatoes, French tarragon and a licorice plant) 💚🌿 no seeds but young plants so let’s see........ let them grow grow grow!👩🏻‍🌾⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Happy Wednesday everyone!😘💛⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #pointsnorthworkshops #norway #monochromatic #simple #simplicity #minimalistic #lessismore #ihavethisthingwithfloors #woodart #floor #minimalism #minimalist #minimalmood #minimalistic #minimal_perfection #minimalove #simplicity #minimalobsession #photos #picture #keepitsimple #instaphoto #neutralcolors #stilllife #still_life_gallery #todays_simplicity #seekthesimplicity #tv_stilllife #darktablemood

Forced rhubarb towering out of the orchard crowd proud and a little obstentatious in its new dress. And what a pretty dress this was. Apparently purchased for the occasion (forcing rhubarb of course) and imported all the way from the UK to Norway where it now stands proudly and making the most delicious and delicate rhubarb I had in a long time... Could it contribute to the deliciousness that it was baked in and by @linda_lomelino pie?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #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

perhaps it’s the rays of early morning sunshine, gentle breezes luffing at the window shades, or perhaps it’s the last days spent in the hamptons surrounded by so many wonderful small farms, or perhaps it’s the perfect mix of all of it .... but whatever the reason I’m feeling very inspired to be out in the gardens these last couple of days . . as I grow bigger with baby day by day I’m also watching our (very paired down) summer garden here at the farm begin to sprout - yellow blossoms on squash plants, fat round leaves of Kiri squash pushing up through the earth and spindly little bean plants laced with delicate white blossoms where slender beans will soon grow

A corner of a dream country house? Do you have a dream house? Do you dream of a place where you can just spend every single day of your life without wanting to move ever again? A place where everything talks about the life you want and the way you want to spend your time, the people you want to spend it with and where nature is the main actor of the scene? I do. I have been dreaming about it for the past 15 years. One day, I know, it will be mine and I will be hers. . . . . . #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #botanicalpickmeup #norway #scandinavianstyle #foraging #forager #wildherbs #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #gatheringslikethese #eleganceintheeveryday #underthefloralspell #inspiredbynature #allthingsbotanical #greenliving #flowermagic #nothingisordinary #pursuepretty #houseplantclub #urbanjunglebloggers #livemoremagic #flowersofinstagram #lifeandthyme #momentsofmine #dreamhouse

The last moments of the workshop. Linda (@linda_lomelino) made us two delicious cakes which we could photograph and eat as a goodbye. Maybe not a goodbye, bu a see you later. Because I truly believe I will see some of them again ✨ This cake is made with matcha from @matchaeologist and the beautiful model is @cottagefarm . You can read everything about the workshop in a blogpost I wrote a week ago.

My real apron is currently flapping on the line in the cool evening breeze... freshly washed of the weekends creative messes.... flour from cake baking, dough from a very lively sourdough... cloudberry jam... aquavit cocktails... leaves and debris from flower crown making....a midsummer mess if you will...but no sooner had I thrown the apron into the wash... I was thinking about the next gathering I need to plan... . . . . . . #beautyofstillmoments #pointsnorthworkshops #realflowersoftheseason #theslowdowncollective #simpleauthenticbeautiful #seekinspirecreate #botanicalbits #thatauthenticfeeling #seeingthepretty #theartofgathering #styleitpretty #simplethingsmadebeautiful #distractionsandinspirations #botanicalforagersunitedsocietyinc #embracingtheseasons #poetryofsimplethings #momentsofmine #myseasonalstory #botanicaltales #stylingtheseasons #alovefornaturesbest #livemoremagic #seasonspoetry #botanicaldaydreams #littlestoriesofmylife #aquietcorner #mybeautifulsimplicity #heitermoments #myweekofmysteryandmagic

Elixir of summer by @adelasterfoodtextures served by a the very gracious @linda_lomellino. This was the opening drink of the #pointsnorthworkshops I attended a few weeks ago in Norway. There is so much I could tell about this event, for now I just savour the memory of the taste of this cordial that will forever remind me of good company and long evenings in the land of midnight sun.⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #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

"To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it" I met so many kindred souls on this workshop who are as much in love with life as I am, one of them is my dear friend Aniek @flourgirl.nl This scene was dreamed and styled by me and it came to life with her in the frame. I love the dark and moody but light is a challenge. One of the other challenges for me is to create and style outdoor scenes but I decided to push myself a little bit and give it a try as part of the exercise in our workshop. Hope you fall more & more in love with life, Happy Monday everyone. #poetryofsimplethings . . . . . #pointsnorthworkshops #onelifetobake #appetitejournal #ourfoodstories #slowandseasonal #aquietstyle #searchwandercollect #lifeandthyme #seekinspirecreate #seekthesimplicity #visualstorytelling #verilymoment #themoodybeautiful #lifewellcaptured #littlestoriesofmylife #lifeunscripted #aseasonalshift #slownaturemoments #seeingthepretty #calmversation #pursuepretty #theweekoninstagram #smallmomentsofcalm #cornersofmyworld #allwhatsbeautiful #myeverydaymagic #kinfolklife

I have a few more things from the workshop I want to share, Like this little street in a mountain/mining town in Norway. @picturethatfood shoot it better than me on a few nights prior. I will put her stunning shoot in my stories, I went to get it and just went Wow when I saw her gorgeous gallery- had to share the whole lot ❤️ also made an historic recipe in stories for midsummer, saved in my highlights, under collaboration. • • • • • #visitnorway #mittnorge #ilovenorway #norway #norge #bestofnorway #feedfeed #landscapesofnorway #dreamchasersnorway #thebestofnorway #highlightsnorway #ig_norway #ig_nordnorge #norges_fotografer #pointsnorthworkshops #wu_norway #norgefoto #loves_norway #northernnorway #turistforeningen #mittfriluftsliv #oslobilder #nortrip #pocket_norway #igscandinavia #mittnordnorge #oslo #lofoten #liveterbestute #wildfoodlove

I have been waiting for the school holidays for so long that I am probably more excited than my kids. School off means more flexibility during our days, more flexibility for our travels and to explore, less rigid timing to stick to... time to eat, time to sleep, time to go here and there. I confess that rigid schedules are not my strong point and as much as I need a basic routine and structure to function well, too much of it suffocates me and makes me nervous. I can't wait to start two months of slow living, exploration, catching up with long waiting projects and lots of chilling time. Summer is the time when I get to put order in my life, tidy things up, plan and organise for the following year, commit on projetcs and explore my creativity. To be able to that with my family is an absolute privilege that I thank my messy and sometimes stressful freelancing job for. What are your plans for the holidays? Do you only take time off or you also find that are an amazing time to organise, plan and take important decisions? This is me exploring my creativity during the #pointsnorthworkshops.

Some more shots from the beautiful mansion of @melggarden! Apologies, I can't help it. This house is just so beautiful! I spent the day trying to plan our next two months of travel as a family... I did some progress but the task is still far from completion. It's funny how I find myslef continuosly caught in the dilemma if to privilege the sunny mediterranean or move north. I know it's summer and this season is just so beautiful in Europe that we should try to soak up as much sun as we can, but there again... the scorching southern sun or the blissful nordic one? I admit I am hopelessly attracted by the latter. Anyways, some plans are already in place... I will give a bit more details in my stories next week hoping to inspire you too... There will be lots of Italy this time. . . . . . #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #botanicalpickmeup #norway #scandinavianstyle #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #gatheringslikethese #eleganceintheeveryday #underthefloralspell #inspiredbynature #allthingsbotanical #greenliving #nothingisordinary #pursuepretty #livemoremagic #lifeandthyme #momentsofmine #passionpassport #northerlights #iamatraveler #wanderlust #beautifuldestinations #mytinyatlas #neverstopexploring #stayandwander

A family tree at @melgaarden. It so fascinating to be able to go back generations and generations and get to know what your ancestors were doing and what they were passionate about... I loved the ancestors wall in the main sitting room of this charming country estate in the countryside outside Oslo. The story of the family told by the present owners and keepers of the house, the tales and anecdotes. I wish I could have the same... #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #norway #scandinavianstyle #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #gatheringslikethese

Wishing you all a Happy Midsummer today ✨♥️🍓 I made these very typical Swedish summer cakes for our @melgaarden workshop, fluffy sponge cakes brushed with lemon verbena syrup, topped with sweetened whipped cream and fresh strawberries. Doesn't get much easier than that! ✨ Find the recipe for the base of the cake through the link in my profile! #pointsnorthworkshops

Can I have just one more piece, okay one piece of each, from these delicious cakes? It’s a long time ago I baked a cake for myself.. I was so busy with photographing and editing of my 3000 photos of the workshop! Maybe I need to change that next week. I’m going to try to turn instagram off for 3 days. I’m just a bit frustrated about it and can’t help it but I’m not happy with my feed. You probably won’t understand it, but it means I need a bit rest I think, try to focus not too much on it and look next week with a fresh eye. I have the feeling I’m reinventing myself and everything and it’s not easy for me. Thank you all for all your love and support. Sleep well and talk to you again next week 😘 . . .

Inspiration no matter contradictory opinion is not a finite resource. It isn’t a commodity nor is it exclusive. It ebbs and flows with frustrating inconsistency. Sometimes it arrives unannounced and other times it’s badly coveted; searching for it can be pointless or even worse totally unflattering - cue comparison; and goodbye confidence. It might seem terribly disheartening that there’s literally no secret to finding inspiration, ironically that’s also part of the magic though; every approach is different and no one is absolute. . The best means to find your own rhythm is simply trial and error; chart out a methodology that suits your own lifestyle and temperament. Some find inspiration in nature, others with mood boards, there’s brainstorming, mentors, research and @instagram - innumerable means and sources. It’s impossible to know what will suit you – rather the process is one of elimination - it takes time plus self-awareness to discover. Personally I need lots of time and quiet to literally do nothing but sit, think and write - distraction and procrastination are my biggest weaknesses. . My other remedy when despondency becomes more engrain is the attendance of workshops - these are like a match to gunpowder, they set ideas and possibilities ablaze. A dear friend of mine @the.flo.show is on the latest podcast episode from @me_and_orla talking all about this so jump over there if you need more convincing. In the mean time though I’m interested to hear where and how everyone else finds their own stream of inspiration; perhaps in the beautiful work of @cottagefarm - whose handiwork from the @melgaarden workshop is pictured above? . . . . . #thebotanicalkitchen #theartofgathering #pointsnorthworkshops #gatheringslikethese #momentsofmine #mystoryoflight #livemoremagic #kindlecuriosity #savourtheseasonalshift #thisishowisummer #picnic #cntravelereats #cntraveler #foragebyfork #stilllifephotography #thatauthenticfeeling #theweekoninstagram

The mansion of @melgaarden is full of surprises. So much history in the rooms, attics and sheds spread all around the grounds of the property. Old houses hold a special fascination with their random collection of objects from the past and the different people who inhabited them, every surface telling a story, or many, every crack a scar defining its landscape. @megaarden is one of those houses where you can feel the passion of the people who built it and lived there, their dreams and the their hopes through the time dedicated in choosing the wallpaper of the rooms and the plants of the garden. Every detail a work of love. Lives long gone that we can still touch through a place they loved and they left a mark upon. A magical meeting up place defying time and space. The present owner and descendants of the founding family are doing an amazing job at restoring and preserving this property. They are growing their young family in the rooms of their ancestors, while they study meticulously the archives in search of any details that can insure the authenticity of the restoration they are working on. It takes dedication and abundant doses of energy and love, but after having met Liv, I know this house couldn't have hoped for a better Lady of the House to keep its legacy going. I discovered this nets in the attic of a wooden house, were costumes, old copybooks, letters and so much more were stored. I forgot to ask what they were for since @melgaarden is not at the sea. Maybe a river or a lake nearby I don't know about? I keep wondering... . . . . . #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #botanicalpickmeup #norway #scandinavianstyle #livemoremagic #keeper #keepers #keepersoftradition #melgaarden #theartofslowliving #aquietstyle #seekthesimplicity #gatheringslikethese #swedishkitchen #mansions #heritagemansions #heritage #keepersofthepast #historichouses #honouringtraditions #passionpassport #iamatraveler #pursuepretty #stayandwander #beautifuldestinations #theculturetrip #mytinyatlas

That pie... oh my. I could just eat a piece right now.. with a cuppa. 🥧 A guilty pleasure of mine is watching those cake decorating videos on YouTube and on here... I find them addictive... and mesmerising. Watching buttercream whipped and smoothed on a cake as it twirls around at break neck speed on its turntable... I sometimes wonder if I get more joy out of watching these clips than I would actually eating the elaborately decorated cake... sometimes... 🥧 It was like watching those clips ... in real life and at slow speed... watching @linda_lomelino make the pie crust for this rhubarb pie... the cutting and weaving of pastry was like watching a magician perform a card trick... mesmerising... and the best bit was getting to eat the pie afterwards too... which never happens with those clips! 😬 Pie & styling by @linda_lomelino photo by me. . . . . . . #beautyofstillmoments #theslowdowncollective #seekinspirecreate #pointsnorthworkshops #onthetable #foodfluffer #foodphotography #simpleauthenticbeautiful #simplethingsmadebeautiful #distractionsandinspirations #foodphotoinsta #bevisuallyinspired #postitfortheaesthetic #feedfeed #hautescuisines #huffposttaste #momentsofwonder #scrumptiouskitchen #tastingtable #thesincerestoryteller #eatprettythings #rustickitchen #simplepleasures #fromabove #asimplestill #tablescape #rusticstyle #foodandflatlay #thebakefeed

It has been already two weeks since I attended the Norway workshop from Olivia @adelasterfoodtextures, Linda @linda_lomelino and Krissy @cottagefarm at that lovely place of Live @Melgaarden. Gosh time flies.......😳🙈⠀ ⠀ One of my favorite shots is this one, when Linda was making a rhubarb pie and dusting some flour.⠀ We were able to take a lot of action shots and oh my..... Linda is the most patient model I have ever encountered. ⠀ She kept on repeating her action till we (10 participants tagged in the picture) all had the perfect shot. ⠀ Not only with this picture but also action shots of scattering sugar, sqeezing lemon, rasping lemon, mixing the rhubarb or blowing out a candle over and over again. Have a look in my stories and you will see the rest of them😉⠀ ⠀ Thank you Linda for your patience, because without it I doubt I would have been able to shoot this picture or the others😘💛⠀ ⠀ Happy Wednesday everyone.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #baking #bakingtime #instabake #homebaking #lemon #dessert #foodgasm #yum #eat #foodpic #foodphotography #foodlover #pointsnorthworkshops #norway #foodphotography #foodgasm #foodstyling #foodpics #feedfeed #f52grams #foodlover #eeeeeats #foodpic #beautifulcuisines #foodgram #foodshare #foodspotting #darktablemood #foodfluffer #picturethatfood

I believe that Dining room is the beating heart of the house. This blue room too was the hub of heart warming memories and connections made through food. We had a beautiful 7 course experience waiting for us, made by Olivia @adelasterfoodtextures Little did I know it is going to be a life changing dinner for me. I had heard about the workshop through Olivia and I couldn't be more glad that I went for it. I have to thank Ana @_goodoldfashioned for that randomly sweet conversation we had. I realised something, until that night I was just walking through a blurring smog of uncertainties. In this very room, my dreams started taking shape. My dream now lives and breathes inside of me. This was my gift to myself and I am so glad I did #selflove #pointsnorthworkshops . . . . . #onelifetobake #heresmyfood #onthetable #buzzfeast #forkyeah #foodgawker #huffposttaste #appetitejournal #ourfoodstories #thekitchn #foodiechats #f52grams #foodies_features #slowandseasonal #aquietstyle #searchwandercollect #lifeandthyme #seekinspirecreate #seekthesimplicity #darktablemood #thedarkpr0ject #visualstorytelling #verilymoment #beautifulcuisines #themoodybeautiful #lifewellcaptured #littlestoriesofmylife

As promised, here is @linda_lomelino cake. This is just one, we ate many more, poor us, someone's got to do it. The light near the big window of the main sitting room at @melgaarden was so good and Linda was incredibly patient in teaching us all her secrets for the best smoky photo. She blew the candles countless times, always failing the last one which would resist her and stay lit. I can still see her smile and hear our cameras clicking. Photography is a never ending learning journey and it's always so interesting to see how different people approach the same shot in completely different manners. The camera becomes your eyes and a gateway to your soul and personality, each person focusing on different angles, details and capturing the light so differently. Some photos are bright and vivid, some are subdued and gentle, some are atmospheric and evocative, some are dreamy and wondrous. The same subject, the same time, the same light. One of the many reasons why I love photography is because it has gifted me with new eyes to the world, where a see beauty in the ordinary and unnoticeable and to myself, helping me read my thoughts and deep emotions that translate into the photo I take regardless, tear down the masks and look straight into the core. Check out the accounts of the others amazingly talented attendees and the hosts of course to see what I mean. All tagged in. Just tap on the photo. . . . . . #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

If you have been reading me these past few days you must know by now I am pretty obsessed with the world of foraging and wild edible herbs and plants @adelasterfoodtextures has open for me during the #pointsnorthworkshops in Norway. I used to do lots of foraging with my granddad as a child. After he left us we stopped. I kept the memories but lost all the knowledge he was trying to pass down to me. Does anyone know of a good illustrated book that introduces various plants in a easy manner, teaching you where to find them and how to recognise them from non edible ones? Obviously I live in north Italy and therefore must be related to the flora of this region. I tried to look up books on @amazon but there is so much that is really hard to choose what is best for a beginner who deadly needs illustrations of every plant that is covered. I have a long holiday to plan and would love to spend some time learning about plants. . . . . . #nabateaconceptstore #nabateawanderings #nabateastyle #pointsnorthworkshops #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

Gathering is a time honoured endeavour. It manifests our social nature in its nurture of community and kinship; in modern times though it’s rare to be still amid the noise and haste, rather our days seem to be in perpetual motion; time slips and space for ourselves is diminished. In moments of pause opportunities for magic should not to be overlooked then. . At the #pointsnorthworkshops @blackwhitevivid and I ferried our ‘almost’ midsummer feast out into the field so that we could dine awash with sunshine. It was not without effort nor hassle as some would deem it, but you know what - in that moment when your shoulders slip and your head tilts to the sun with a full belly and long grass grazing at the knee the magic was surely upon us. . A casual affair is perhaps my favourite means to dine, and none more so than when Scandinavian food is on the table. It’s the kind of fare that I gravitate toward on daily basis; anything pickled, smoked, fresh or creamy and don’t even get me started on rye smørrebrød. I’m totally enamoured. Of course the most endearing quality of such cuisine is the effortlessness with which a feast can be created - something to keep in mind with picnic season upon us. . . . . . #thebotanicalkitchen #theartofgathering #norway #mymagicaltabletop #savourtheseasonalshift #fromabove #eatmoremagic #beautifulcuisines #onmytable #tablesituation #heresmyfood #mytinyatlas #thesweetlifeunscripted #littlestoriesofmylife #momentsoflight

I am writing this post after discovering yet another part of the story behind the lesson we had at @melgaarden about food preservation and light challenges in photography. I am not going to tell you much about it now- just that it has to deal with Viking women’s wisdom 🤫 because I feel the story unfolding is still ongoing for me, every day learning a little more, and I’d love to share it with you when I know more. For now I can say that Ancient recipes to preserve food and wild plants are one of the biggest inspiration I brought home with me from the #pointsnorthworkshops in Norway. ⠀ ⠀ There is so much wisdom from the past we are losing in the run for the future. Progress does not need to happen in spite of yesterday but must build on it and go forward strongly supported by all our ancestors and those who preceded us discovered and experience before our time. History is always so enriching when we can see the connections with the present and our daily life and it’s all contained live and in vibrating colours in @adelasterfoodtextures jars or preserved fruits and in all the beautiful preserved ingredients that make her food and drinks spectacular, unique and memorable. ⠀ ⠀ I am just digging my fingers in this subject she is so knowledgeable about, so if you want to know more you should ahead over her feed. ⠀ ⠀ From a photographer point of view, I fell in love with the colours and the way the light reflected on the jars and brightened the red syrop and the pale peaches. ⠀ ⠀ #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 ‘classroom’ for my lesson on preserving held at @melgaarden ! It was so fitting to hold it in the attic/shed because the knowledge I shared is so old and forgotten. Did you know that you can preserve food without preservatives/salt or sugar? And that the food can last 30 year plus with this method 😱 I most certainly did not know that until I stumbled across this knowledge ( searching for ways to keep my wild forest finds a little longer )! But it did chock me that we barely don’t use this sensible method anymore 😳 I also had the attendees photograph this scene 5 ways without moving anything. The light was extremely unforgiving so it was a very difficult lesson. I also had them finding the light in the most forgotten corners of Melgaarden. Will share some moments of this in stories. Luckily we had an extreme amount of talent at the workshop so they did amazing! • • • • • #theartofslowliving #feedfeed #seekthesimplicity #f52grams #lifeandthyme #gastroart #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #eeeeeats #aquietstyle #verilymoment #heresmyfood #feelfreefeed #momentsofmine #onmytable #beautifulcuisines #pointsnorthworkshops #littlestoriesofmylife #inspiremyinstagram #foodandwine #livethelittlethings #forkyeah #objectproject_windows #postitfortheaesthetic #onthetable #yahoofood #pursuepretty #slowliving #oldknowledge #wildfoodlove

Making of a delicious Rhubarb pie by @linda_lomelino I am taking my time to recharge from the trip and absorb all the amazing things that happened in past few weeks. I feel overwhelmed but in a good way. I feel scared and anxious but my mind is brimming with new ideas. I have so many photos that I face an eternal dilemma on which ones do I share with you. Best way to relax would be to do nothing some might say, but I find my zen when I mix things together and flavours emerge. For a change tonight I think I am going to light a candle, turn on some relaxing music and read a book. How do you relax and slow down, I am curious to know ? . . . . #misenplace #pointsnorthworkshops #onelifetobake #eeeeeats #heresmyfood #onthetable #ihavethisthingfordarkness #darkandmoody #buzzfeast #forkyeah #tastemade #foodgawker #huffposttaste #appetitejournal #ourfoodstories #thekitchn #foodiechats #f52grams #foodies_features #darktablemood #foodblogfeed #gloobyfood #beautifulcuisines #themoodybeautiful #eatprettythings #foodfluffer #scrumptiouskitchen #hautecuisines #tastespotting

And this is me, styling away... I normally prefer standing behind the camera, but when you have @adelasterfoodtexture offering to take a photo of you, well then you better take the chance! Thanks Olivia for having taken some very good shots... I am a little the kind of person who will prefer to take self-portraits becasue this way I feel that I will control how I get photographed.

The lingering cast of winter has all but drained away south and in its place summertime arrived with long shadows and lilacs. It’s been an eventful few weeks which in some respects has merely matched the pace of my year - spring though, more than any season seems to have slip away almost entirely unnoticed. . I’m an odd mélange of anticipation and exhaustion at the moment which I do realise don’t normally go hand in hand but I’m also someone with an unusual tendency to harbour contradictory qualities. If you’ve glimpsed stories recently you’ll have seen I was fortunate enough to once again be working behind the scenes at the @melgaarden #pointsnorthworkshops with @adelasterfoodtextures @linda_lomelino @cottagefarm and @blackwhitevivid it was magic capsule of time; and there were moments, almost out of body, where I caught myself wondering how exactly I found my way into this world. The journey has been slow and unfolding and in some ways I feel as though I’ve never taken absolute ownership of it, I think maybe it’s time to. . . . . . #thebotanicalkitchen #theartofgathering #mytinyatlas #norway #invitethestory #momentsofmine #mystoryoflight #livemoremagic #theweekoninstagram #thehappynow #aquietstyle #littlestoriesofmylife #pursuepretty #darlingmovement #verilymoment #seekthesimplicity #petitejoys #gatheringslikethese #searchwandercollect #flashesofdelight #beautifulmatters

#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

I tried putting the moon as location, who knew it’s not possible! 🤷‍♀️ there has been a long long long battle between Sweden and Norway. When it stopped being with swords, it started with words instead. But after seeing more of Norway I must say that there is no room for ridicule! It’s an amazing place that deserves to be celebrated. I must confess a slight preference towards the desolate, grand nature, ( lichen in the woods, read previous posts if you didn’t get that one then ), mountains with snow in summer, deep valleys, grass on the roofs, plenty of wood houses, incredible produce. Yes, might just move there one day 🙈 • • • • • #visitnorway #mittnorge #ilovenorway #norway #norge #bestofnorway #verilymoment #landscapesofnorway #dreamchasersnorway #thebestofnorway #highlightsnorway #ig_norway #ig_nordnorge #norges_fotografer #visitoslo #wu_norway #norgefoto #loves_norway #northernnorway #turistforeningen #mittfriluftsliv #wildfoodlove #nortrip #pointsnorthworkshops #igscandinavia #mittnordnorge #theartofslowliving #feedfeed #liveterbestute #theartofplating

I said this before but I love the images I don’t really mean to take, the ones that comes like a flash of ‘I need to capture this’ ! This image speaks loudly to my personality type, I almost see it as a symbol of it. The image is of the talented @flourgirl.nl taken during our free creative lesson ( want to see the prop cupboard for that lesson- look in @linda_lomelino feed today ) maybe the two girls mentioned will also see the infp layers in this image ;) ! 🌳 I so enjoyed watching how some in the group blossomed as we gave them time for their own creativity and to seek out the corners of Melgaarden that spoke to them. I enjoyed watching what they picked, from a big collection of things down to a single item. Some of my favorite images from the workshop was taken during this time and I will put that one in my stories later today. • • • • • #theartofslowliving #seekthesimplicity #verilymoment #aquietstyle #thatauthenticfeeling #wildfoodlove #momentsofmine #littlestoriesofmylife #inspiremyinstagram #lifeandthyme #livethelittlethings #thehappynow #postitfortheaesthetic #pursuepretty #slowliving #workshop #morningslikethese #onmytable #tastemade #instafeast #rslove #commontable #darlingmovement #gatheringslikethese #momentslikethese #realsimple #vscocook #flashesofdelight #heresmyfood #pointsnorthworkshops

Can I please have this as dessert tonight? You maybe won’t believe it, but it was around 10.30 pm when I took this photo. So weird it didn’t get really dark there. I was completely lost of time (also because the good compagny during dinners). We never were in bed before midnight. Miss the evenings and the talks. I think I need to go back next year 🙈 . This cake was made by @linda_lomelino and the gorgeous house from @melgaarden as background . . #midnightsun #norway #travelnorway #baking #f52food #f52grams #lightroom #eeeeats #foodstyling #styleonmytable #thebakefeed #savourmag #foodandwine @foodfluffer #photooftheday #hautecuisines #beautifulcuisines #chef_cooking_lovers #bakestagram #cookinginnature @foodblogfeed #foodblogfeed #f52fresh #pointsnorthworkshops
