Recipe – Garlic and herb butter

Recipe - Garlic and herb butter

This recipe is a classic. It’s really simple to make but it tastes ten times better than store bought garlic butter. The herbs are growing in my garden and garlic is something I always have laying around so I make this butter often. I never use a lot of garlic because I don’t want it to dominate the taste, but you can adapt the recipe if you want to.

We went for a walk today in our new neighborhood. We wanted to do this since the first day we’ve got here but we just never got around to do it. It’s pretty nice around here. There is a lot of water so we may want a small boat some day. It would be lovely for summerdays! Maybe next year… Do you have ‘Maybe next year’ plans? XO Wilma

DIY – Vintage button bracelet

DIY - Vintage button bracelet

A little while ago I found two jars full of vintage buttons at the thrift store. Some of them are really beautiful and they were just asking for a DIY project to get used in. So I decided to make a vintage button bracelet.

Recipe – Homemade tortilla wraps

recipe - homemade tortilla wraps

I love wrap tortillas because they are delicious and easy to make. But sometimes I like to make those simple store bought things myself. The recipe isn’t hard to do but it take some time to make them. I love the taste of it. They taste a lot more natural comparing to the store bought ones.

How to Mod Podge fabric on your shoes. An easy way to get the pattern for the fabric just right! @ By Wilma

I have a pair of black pumps that are really comfortable. Because of that I wear them a lot and oh boy that’s visible… I can’t trow them away, they are to comfy! But I can’t really wear them anymore ether. Don’t we all have a pair of shoes like this? I decided it was time for a makeover. For the shoes I used some vintage fabric and the heel is covered with fake leather. I developed a really easy technique on how to make a pattern for your fabric. So, let’s get started! XO Wilma

Recipe – Shoarma and spinach from the oven

Recipe - Shoarma and spinach from the oven

This dish is one of my favorites to make. It’s really simple and everybody loves it! I think this is the first thing I ever cooked for my boyfriend. When shoarma (marinaded pork strips) is on sale I always make this dish. I make the sauce myself, but my mother always buys a package of white sauce. It works both ways. I hope you like this recipe!
