This morning I am very happy to welcome my newest sponsor to this blog!
Rough Linen is a US based company founded by Tricia Rose...
Here is her story:
"My name is Tricia Rose. I found this homespun, hand sewn linen pillow slip while I was clearing my grandmother's cottage in Scotland. It was made by her great-grandmother, in 1840, and was in regular use for three generations.
When it came to me I used it to store lavender. Years later, by good fortune, I found a natural linen with the same wonderful texture and feel, and I decided to make bedding in this simple, elemental tradition.
I wanted the feeling of connection, appreciation of good materials and handiwork which is part of my heritage, as part of my everyday life .
I hope you love it as I do. With care, it should last a hundred years."

Vanilla cream - Crème anglais
1.Clean the rhubarb and cut it in pieces of 2-3 cm
2.Mix the rhubarb pieces with the sugar, vanilla and the peel of the lemon.
3.Put the mixture on a tray with baking paper and bake in the oven at
150°C for 20 minutes.
4.When the mixture is finished, leave it to cool in the fridge.
1.Mix all the ingredients in a pot and slowly heat it up on the stove.
Always stir the mixture so avoid it to burn. Stir until the mixture gets thick
and then take it off the stove and let it cool down
a cocktail glass (or any other tall glass) and layer the rhubarb mixture with
the crème anglais and the amaretto biscuit. Top it with some whipped cream and
decorate with a strawberry or almonds.
......(translated means the Troll Wall) is surely one of the most beautiful spots
in the world! The fjords of Norway have always been on my list of places I
must see. The new visitors centre designed by Reiulf Ramstad Architects
has recently opened and its design has been thoughtfully considered, bearing in mind
the outstanding natural beauty around it. Jagged roofs, raw woods, glass walls and
tables made out of Dinesens Heart Oak planks - surely Dinesens stunning products
couldn't find a more apt location than here to showcase its natural beauty!
