I was talking to Ävälon the other day, when all of a sudden she cupped my face in her little hands, looked at me and exclaimed, “mama, you’re eyes are all wrong.” “Are they?” I said. “Yes. They have brown spots. I think you’re eyes are broken,” said Ävälon very matter of factly. And then it dawned on me she was referring to the fact I have a condition called Heterochromia, which affects the way melanin develops in the irises, causing you to have different coloured eyes, or, like in my case, flecks of brown scattered here and there. When I was younger, I used to hate the fact my eyes were covered in brown flecks. I just wanted them to be a nice normal blue colour. But as I’ve grown older, I’ve become rather fond of my strange not quite blue but almost grey eyes that sometimes look green and are decorated with brown confetti (if you look closely you can see it in this photo). I long ago decided that my eyes were not wrong, just different. I know we all have things we might like to change about ourselves but it’s important you remember that you are right, just the way you are. Not wrong, not broken, but exactly right! We all need a reminder sometimes to appreciate our own uniqueness, and to learn to love the parts of us we think are less than ideal. So if you needed a reminder today here it is. I hope you are all having a wonderful day whatever you’re up to! ❤️❤️🙌 #apronandink #love #foodblog #happynewyear #happy #healthyfood #vegan #veganrecipes #nature #plantbased #livewild #greenwitch #finnishgirl #kitchenwitch #picoftheday #fun #organic #cute #thatsdarling #life #veganrecipes #adventure #quotes #henrimatisse #livewild #wildheart #intothewoods #picnic #sisterhood #heterochromia #unique #loveyourself

Pinecones are one of my all time favourite things, and I get so excited every time I find a perfect specimen, like this little guy! Our weekend was spent exploring and picnicking in the forest (where we had a happy afternoon hunting for treasures to take home), reading and drinking lattes in one of our favourite mountain cafes. All in all it was a pretty perfect weekend 💚😍 hope you guys had a lovely time too, relaxing and doing what you love best 😀❤️ #apronandink #love #foodblog #happynewyear #happy #healthyfood #vegan #veganrecipes #nature #plantbased #livewild #greenwitch #finnishgirl #kitchenwitch #picoftheday #fun #organic #cute #thatsdarling #life #veganrecipes #adventure #quotes #henrimatisse #livewild #wildheart #intothewoods #picnic #pinecones #pineconeheart #cafe #foraging

My current obsession at the moment is turmeric and cinnamon smoothies! 😍😍Sometimes it’s just too warm for chai, so I turn to this old favourite for my dose of warming spices. Yum! 💛RECIPE UP ON THE BLOG 🤗💛 #apronandink #love #foodblog #happynewyear #happy #healthyfood #vegan #veganrecipes #nature #plantbased #livewild #greenwitch #finnishgirl #kitchenwitch #picoftheday #fun #organic #cute #thatsdarling #life #veganrecipes #adventure #quotes #henrimatisse #livewild #wildheart #turmeric #smoothie #vegansmoothie #cinnamon #healthylife

Today was supposed to be a very productive day filled with study and designing fabric patterns, but alas, so far it has consisted of running around doing errands (very boring), and drinking chai with mama bear and falling down the rabbit hole that is looking at property (very not boring). Two hours later we emerged, in a haze of what ifs and maybes, and left it at that. For now 🤗 Now I am thinking of lunch, and my belly wants bruschetta. Just like this. But I have no sourdough, nor do I have enough ripe tomatoes on the plants, so lunch will have to be a simple dish of fried potatoes, with a bit of olive oil and sage. Not a bad second, as any potato lover will tell you! I hope you’re all having a happy, productive Tuesday. I plan to add a bit of productivity to my happy, just as soon as I’ve devoured these golden, crispy spuds! 😀👊🥔 #apronandink #love #foodblog #happynewyear #happy #healthyfood #vegan #veganrecipes #nature #plantbased #livewild #greenwitch #finnishgirl #kitchenwitch #picoftheday #fun #organic #cute #thatsdarling #life #veganrecipes #adventure #quotes #henrimatisse #livewild #wildheart #tomatoes #bruschetta

Wild, rambling gardens are a refuge and a place to dream. They are also, I've discovered, a place to find natural remedies for common aliments and can be an abundant place to forage if you know what to look for. Nasturtiums, whose leaves and flowers are edible, have always grown freely in my Mummo’s garden, but it is only in the past few years that I discovered you can actually eat them! Now I always pick a handful when I visit to throw in a salad as they look so pretty. I have always wanted to learn more about wild plants and herbs and their uses and now I finally am, and I’m so excited! I’ve just started a course at @herbalacademy, and I cannot wait to learn, build on my knowledge and apply it in my daily life🤗🌱🌿✨Yay for online learning! #apronandink #love #foodblog #happynewyear #happy #healthyfood #vegan #veganrecipes #nature #plantbased #livewild #greenwitch #finnishgirl #kitchenwitch #picoftheday #fun #organic #cute #thatsdarling #life #veganrecipes #adventure #quotes #henrimatisse #livewild #wildheart #intothewoods #picnic #sisterhood #herbal #herbology

Delicious eats from last Friday’s picnic in the form of mapled carrots! 🥕🥕🥕Seriously one of the yummiest things in the world, and so incredibly easy to make. All you have to do is grab a bunch of dutch carrots, place them on a tray and cover them in a bit of olive oil, maple syrup and a sprinkling of sea salt and bake in a hot oven until they are cooked to your liking. I prefer mine well done and caramelised. It’s almost like eating candy. Healthy candy that is and the perfect accompaniment to a fresh quinoa salad. If only I could time travel back to Friday!😍🥕😉🥕 #apronandink #love #foodblog #happynewyear #happy #healthyfood #vegan #veganrecipes #nature #plantbased #livewild #greenwitch #finnishgirl #kitchenwitch #picoftheday #fun #organic #cute #thatsdarling #life #veganrecipes #adventure #quotes #henrimatisse #livewild #wildheart #intothewoods #picnic #sisterhood #dutchcarrots #mapledcarrots #yum

I am grateful for many things in life, but one of the things I am most grateful for is having sisters. And I don’t just mean sisters by blood or marriage, but sisters by choice, a tribe of women who you know you can count on, who encourage you and want the best for you, and who stick around through the hard times, not just the good. And who love you, just as you are, as you love them. This is something quite special. I spent last Friday with two women who make me smile on the inside, even when I don’t feel particularly sunny. They challenge me and make me want to be better, and do better. But best of all, they make me feel loved and accept all the craziness that is me. You can’t ask for much better than that. So in celebration of sisterhood, the end of summer and reflecting on and counting our blessings over the past year, we had an evening picnic! And it was delightful! Hope you guys are having a wonderful Wednesday whatever it is you’re up to 💚💚💚😀 NEW BLOG POST UP/Link in bio 😘 #apronandink #love #foodblog #happynewyear #happy #healthyfood #vegan #veganrecipes #nature #plantbased #livewild #greenwitch #finnishgirl #kitchenwitch #picoftheday #fun #organic #cute #thatsdarling #life #veganrecipes #adventure #quotes #henrimatisse #livewild #wildheart #intothewoods #picnic #sisterhood

Henri Matisse once said “there are flowers everywhere for those who want to see them.” I love this, and I believe he was talking about more than just the desire to spot a wildflower. Beauty can be found almost anywhere if our eyes are open to it and we are willing to look. I am willing, and very excited I get to spend some time in nature today, surrounded by greenery and hugged by low lying clouds 🤗 I hope everyone has a lovely day, with a dash of adventure in there somewhere and a wildflower or two 😘🌲☁️ #apronandink #love #foodblog #happynewyear #happy #healthyfood #vegan #veganrecipes #nature #plantbased #livewild #greenwitch #finnishgirl #kitchenwitch #picoftheday #fun #organic #cute #thatsdarling #life #veganrecipes #adventure #quotes #henrimatisse #livewild #wildheart #intothewoods

Mud cake with mocha cream and berries in all its glory! I used to make this all the time, but back in the day I used butter and eggs and wasn’t sure if this would work without them, but it did. And I’m so happy it did! I honestly can’t tell much of a difference. It’s chocolatey and moist and just plain yum. The trick to this cake is to bake it in a low oven and not to overcook it. You want it to be a bit gooey in the middle, and how long you bake it will really depend on your oven. But to be safe, undercook it rather than overcook it. I hope you guys are enjoying your Friday! I’m very excited as I am spending the evening with two of my best girls. We’re going to set up under the stars and feast on delicious things and give thanks to Mother Earth and talk about what we want to grow and create in our lives in the year to come 😀🙏💛 Hope ya’ll have a fantastic weekend!

Hello lovely people! I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Christmas and New Year and that 2018 is treating you well so far. It has been almost three months since I was here last and time sure has flown. I expected to be away for two weeks, but amid website complications, do-overs, a very busy December and a death in the family, things just took that much longer to get done. I lost one of my favourite people in the world, my pappa (grandfather on my mama’s side), the best and kindest person I have ever known. I miss him everyday. We all do. But as they say, life must go on. I finally managed to get the site to completion and I’m very excited to share it with you (link in bio). Please take a moment to have a bit of a browse and let me know what you all think. All my recipes to date are there and you’ll find a few other bits and pieces too. So, without further ado, welcome to my virtual table, my happy creative space where I can share a bit more with you and get a handle on all the ideas floating around my head. To celebrate the re-launch of the site, I made a mud cake with mocha cream and berries, a very chocolatey delicious treat I wish I could share with you all. Lots of love and inspiration to each and every one of you!

Hello friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend 💛 I’m taking a little break from social media so I can focus fully on getting the website up before the end of November.

Homemade sourdough makes me pretty excited! So does the fact that I’m going to The Plenary this evening to listen to the @melbournesymphonyorchestra perform the score from Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone with my lovely sisters! I’m so excited! Gala seats, poly juice potion cocktails @storyvillemelbourne and magic galore! And the weather has taken a wintery turn today, so I’m even more excited! 🤗🌬⚡️ #apronandink #foodblog #livefolk #vegan #life #happy #liveauthentic #picoftheday #bibliophile #healthyfood #love #cute #nature #pretty #greenwitch #plantbased #livewild #healthyeating #organic #fun #sourdough #excited #harrypotter #thursday #finnishgirl #magic

When you have to take a photo because you’re a proud mama! 😍🌱🎃 We are all so excited to watch these little pumpkin sprouts grow. It’s so satisfying to see something you have taken care of from a little seed thrive. I cannot wait to have a garden full of fairytale pumpkins! I am already thinking of all the wonderful recipes I’ll be able to make.

Today is a drinking lots of spicy chia kinda day. I’m feeling very mellow so it’s just going to be me, my pot of chai and my typewriter. I love the sound the keys make when I type. Christmas is just around the corner and I have lots of letters and cards to send.

The wheel of time turns and today I’m another year older, and hopefully a bit wiser too. I feel pretty much exactly like I look in this photo, pretty happy and just bit giddy. I woke up this morning to the sight of a little fox looking at me. I soon realised the little fox was on the cover of a book titled “The Wonderling” by Mira Bartok. In excitement, I threw off the covers and hugged the new treasure to my chest, only to spot another fox, on the cover of another book. And after that, I found a lighthouse in the dining room. I felt like Gretel, following a trail of book breadcrumbs! I love Sandy for lots of reasons, but I love the fact he knows that it is words, bound in beautiful covers that brings me the most joy, especially when those covers feature foxes and lighthouses (yep, I’m obsessed with both). I have always wanted to live in a lighthouse by the sea and have a fox as part of the family. Perhaps one day. Who knows... but for now, I am pretty happy with my lot. Not everything is perfect, but it’s pretty damn good, and I feel blessed to lead the life I do! Happy Wednesday to each and every one of you 😘😘😘❤️🙏 In other news, I’m over the moon about the fact that that the pumpkin and sunflower seeds I planted have started to sprout and thrive. Turns out I’m a bit of a green thumb. I think they like that I sing to them 😉💚👍🌱 #apronandink #foodblog #livefolk #vegan #life #happy #liveauthentic #picoftheday #bibliophile #healthyfood #love #cute #nature #pretty #greenwitch #plantbased #livewild #healthyeating #organic #fun #birthdaygirl #greenthumb #finnishgirl #foxes #lighthouses #creativefolk #mirabartok

Blackberry pie is something I grew up eating, and it’s one of my favourite nostalgic foods. As children, my siblings and I would spend hours tucked away under blackberry bushes, stuffing our faces until we turned blue. Literally! We would emerge, covered from head to toe in sticky blackberry juice, happy as clams. This is my version of my mammas pie and just the smell of it takes me back to those sun drenched, blackberry foraging days! 😍💚 #apronandink #foodblog #livefolk #vegan #life #happy #liveauthentic #picoftheday #bibliophile #healthyfood #love #cute #nature #pretty #greenwitch #plantbased #livewild #healthyeating #organic #fun #blackberrypie #veganpie #nostaglia #memories #dessert #berries

It’s Friday and I can flick my hair if I want to! I’m feeling pretty chuffed right now, firstly, because I got to spend the day with my baby girl in Warburton, one of my favourite country hill towns, which is full of cute stores, lovely cafes and quirky characters, and secondly, because I can see the light at the end of the tunnel in terms of finishing my site! Yay! Finally getting there. Now I’m going to closet myself in the kitchen and make something delicious for a Friday night feast. I hope everyone’s weekend is filled with good food and whole lot of love ❤️and maybe a flower crown or two if you feel like getting creative✌️🌸 #apronandink #foodblog #livefolk #vegan #life #happy #liveauthentic #picoftheday #bibliophile #healthyfood #love #cute #nature #pretty #greenwitch #plantbased #livewild #healthyeating #organic #fun #warburton #friday #adventures #flowercrown #finnishgirl #excited #weekend

Happy Halloween friends! I hope your day is filled with pumpkins and witches and candy and cookies! I love this day and plan on spending it baking pie and planting pumpkins 💛🎃 An interesting fact: did you know that the carving of pumpkins predates modern Halloween, and was a part of pagan Celtic traditions, where people would carve frightening faces into pumpkins, place a candle inside and leave them outside their homes, because they believed they had the power to scare away evil spirits? I feel like our jack-o-lantern is our little guardian for the day 🤗🎃🦇👻 #apronandink #foodblog #livefolk #vegan #life #happy #liveauthentic #picoftheday #bibliophile #healthyfood #love #cute #nature #pretty #greenwitch #plantbased #livewild #healthyeating #organic #fun #halloween #cookies #pumpkincarving #veganfoodie #holiday #spooky #finnishgirl #finnishfood #piparkakku
