Happy Easter!

Easter is coming up and so is a small DIY Easter market at a friend’s house.
I like these Easter-themed gift tags and textile prints.

Vienna Calling…

We’ve spent two days in Vienna recently. I’m not really a big city girl but Vienna  is probably one of the greenest and most relaxing capitals. We enjoyed strolling through the alleys of the parks and the narrow streets of the old town and the weather was so nice too…

DIY Easter Decoration

Well, Easter’s coming up and since I’ve got some fabric tape left I used it to decorate Easter eggs (which is something I really enjoyed doing as a child).
Here’s the DIY idea:
First paint the eggs with white acrylic colour.
Then cut out some small pieces of fabric tape and stick them on.
To finish off add some nice ribbons.
Ready!

Easter Cake

Here’s  the recipe for a delicious carrot cake, not only suitable for Easter…
125 g flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
175 g brown sugar
2 eggs
5 tablespoons sunflower seed oil
175 g shredded carrots
100 g shredded nuts (walnuts or almonds)

Put the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a bowl. Add the sugar, then the eggs and the oil. Then add the carrots and nuts and stir everything.
Put the dough in a prepared cake tin and bake it about 50 minutes until the cake is golden brown.
Take it out of the oven, let it cool and sprinkle it with powdered sugar.

Waiting for Spring…

I am looking forward to get some new flowers and plants for my terrace, to plant some seeds and watch them grow. But at the moment it looks like we will have to wait a bit longer for spring – it’s still snowing!
