RECYCLING CHRISTMAS-DECOR

After december, when all the Christmas-decor are tucked away waiting for next Christmas to arrive, it can sometimes feel empty in the house and you need something fresh to look at.
 
 
As I love to use a lot of natural materials, also in december, I will end up with a lot of materials that are still useable after taking apart my Christmas-decorations.
 
 
Having materials like moss and little greens in front of me, I came up with this idea for two new decorations for my kitchen-window. The combination of moss, sempervivum and the green color gives me a feeling of growth, spring and brighter days to come. 
 
Have a fantastic Tuesday.

MY LITTLE "HELPER"

Hi, hope you have had a wonderful weekend.
I(Sussi) have been cleaning up my workspace all weekend, reorganising and getting rid of lots of stuff. To be honest, not a lot, because I'm terrible at throwing out stuff....what if I need exactly that piece for my next project? But I don't think(hope) I´m the only one ;-)
 
 
In return I really need everything to be organised, to be able to feel inspired and to be creative. What's also important to me, is having propper tools and equipment to create a good work flow. And I don´t mind it being eyecandy at the same time, like this gorgeous little pincushion I found at a flea-market some months ago. 
 
 
Can anyone blame me for falling in love at first sight ;-)
Have a wonderful and creative week.

CHOCOLATE FACTORY

This year I bought a small Christmas present for myself, that I had been dreaming of for a while. Some of you might know that I(Annika) have a weak spot for homemade chocolate. I have a few recipes I like to use around Easter and Christmas, and I give these as presents or treats, all nicely wrapped, looking fiercely delicious :) 
 
 
Up until now, I have been quite satisfied with a more simple chocolate making approach, one where I could shape the chocolate pieces with a spoon. But this year I was craving a bit more. 
 
 
I got this idea of a chocolate with caramel filling into my head and it just wouldn't go away again. A while ago I stumbled across this delicious caramel recipe, that I was using for a cake, and I thought it would be perfect for the chocolate filling.
 
 
So for this little experiment of mine, I realized I needed to upgrade my chocolate making tools and I immediately thought of those beautiful old metal molds, you sometimes find in vintage shops. These are not necessarily easy or cheap to come by, but I was pretty lucky. I found 

 
So the week before Christmas I turned my kitchen into a small chocolate factory, testing and experimenting and it turned out beautifully. I even tested a couple of silicon molds, or actually they were ice cube trays from Ikea, and they worked very well too. 
 
 
They were pretty easy to just turn upside down and the chocolate pieces would more or less pop out. The metal molds can be a bit harder to work with, but it looks so delicious, when you get it right. 
 
 
I'm very much looking forward to be making more filled chocolate...actually thinking of permanently turning the kitchen into a chocolate factory. I mean, what else do you need besides homemade caramel filled chocolate :)
 
Have a great day!
