Paper Flower Girl Blog

It's time to update the blog of the week so I searched high and low to see who I could introduce that may be fresh and new to your eyes. This week meet who is Isis Sturtewagen -- a young jewelry designer + artist living in Belgium with her husband and she authors a beautiful blog, , and takes the most stunning images of her home! What a gifted person she is. Like me and many of you, she loves natural tones and homes with lovely bones... she also loves to cook. I've included a recipe to this lovely compote shown below, so scroll to the end of this post to scribble it down in your notes.

What I love about these corners is that they're all lovingly curated and much attention went into the details. I also enjoyed reading that most of Isis's finds are thrifted and/or handmade. It demonstrates a real sense of self and style to be able to decorate in a way that so expertly highlights cherished possessions in a personal way - making the item fit you and not the other way around. And now, for the recipe from Paper Flower Girl that I promised earlier. It's delicious, I know because it's the same recipe my cousin shared with me recently. You can also modify it using pears instead of apples...

Apple Compote Recipe: 4 big apples the juice of 2 oranges 4 cloves 1 teaspoon cinnamon honey to taste

Peel and slice the apples. Put everything in a pot and bring to boil. Leave to simmer until tender. Bring to a boil again and pour everything in glass containers.
