Cathrineholm enamelware

While browsing through blogs I found this very happy enamelware from Cathrineholm,
 a Norwegian company that stopped the production in 1970. The lotus pattern especially is much sought after. And therefore it's very expensive. Too bad for me!
But relly good for me:
Many bloggers have turned their kitchen into a gallery for this beautiful midcentury kitchenware.
And now, please enjoy!

The Danish design company,  Lucie Kaas released a brand new Cathrineholm ceramics collection last year. The Arne Clausen collection is named after the Norwegian artist who designed the lotus pattern for the Cathrineholm company.
But unfortunately the bowls aren't really cheap either.
Have a happy week with lots of sunshine and colours.

He's all about iconic pottery, bold colors, hip patterns and modernist form.
 I love all his patterns.
Adler's inspirations have come from Mid-century modern, art and global pop culture.
His fun interiors are meant for happy chic and anti-depressive living like his books are called.

Beeswax Love

My beeswax candles are so beautiful and they're scenting so fine. 
So I surfed the internet and found many more, definitely fascinating.

Advent wreath with beeswax candles

This year's Advent wreath made from moss and beeswax candles. To match my woodland Christmas theme I added playing squirrels and the red stocking-footed deer - a present from my sister in law.
 I love the beautiful golden color of beeswax. 
Even better the fact that it's naturally scented. 
A very warm and cosy perfume - a little bit like honey!
 I used honey for the leaves cookies too. 
They're smelling very Christmassy because they have speculoos spices in them.

 And last not least I tried punch pears which are cooked in non-alcoholic punch for half an hour and then you allow to infuse overnight. The next day you get the most lovely red pears which taste so heavenly delicious with yoghurt, cream cheese or even salad.
And they have a beautiful surprise inside.
Have a lovely and cosy Advent time!
