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 Paper Flower Girl who is Isis Sturtewagen — a young jewelry designer + artist living in Belgium with her husband and she authors a beautiful blog, etsy shop, dawanda store 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
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.
