Bring on the sprouts...!
However, just as I am no friend of a cabbage-inspired cuisine,
nor are you likely to ever catch me munching brussels sprouts...
But who says you have to eat them?!?!
So, true to my motto "Play with your food!", and inspired by something I remembered seeing in Minna's stunning blog Blomsterverkstad last year (read her blog post here) about how to turn these little greens into flowers, I ventured into the garden a few weeks ago...
... to set a small winter table with hints of the festive season...
... but this blog post does not end here... so, are you ready...?
Here we go...
Announcing a small birth...
Some of you may know that my "day job" is as a Communications Consultant and University Guest Lecturer in Intercultural Communication. I enjoy this work very much and find it hugely interesting!
I am also - and this may come as no surprise to you - passionate about interiors and how you feel and live in them, as well as how to try to recycle and upcycle old items and use nature's own treasures when decorating, to aim for a both personal, soulful and sustainable home.
Having had such kind and encouraging response from you (the world's loveliest blog readers!), and having been contacted through my blog by professionals showing an interest in my ideas and photos, I have for some time been pondering if I could pursue this path too...
So today I invite you to witness the modest birth... of ...
You are welcome to visit my website at:
With a lot of lecturing work lined up, I may have to take baby steps here at first, but I look forward to exploring what is possible and how to combine the two jobs! I hope you would like to join me on this exciting journey too!
Now, stand back, here comes the champagne cork!
...and there is more....:
Published in A Mi Otthonunk
Some of the images above, together with some of my other winter and Christmas-inspired photos and ideas can be seen in a six-page feature in the Christmas issue of A Mi Otthonunk (= Our Home) (http://www.amiotthonunk.hu/), which is out in the shops in Hungary today. I feel very honoured - thank you Tímea for contacting me!
To those of you who may have found your way here from the magazine feature, welcome to my blog! For those of you who may not have access to the magazine, but would like to see the feature, I will try to show it to you in the next few days.
So, having shamelessly blown my own trumpet and also a tune for brussels sprouts,
I will let the final note today be an encouraging fanfare to play more with your food!
(It need not be wasted, as in most cases, it can be eaten after having been used as decoration!)
Wishing you a playful weekend!
