Dessert with spice & herb

Made an old-school (typical Dutch) dessert, but I spiced it up a bit.
Rhubarb compote with strawberries, spanish red pepper & basil!

Ingredient list
* Rhubarb * cinnamon stick * brown sugar * vanilla sugar * 2 spoons of water * spanish red pepper * fresh basil * strawberries
How to prepare
*Clean and cut the rhubarb, boil with all the ingredients for the compote except the basil and strawberries. 
(leave cinnamon stick & spanish red pepper uncut, so they are easy to remove)
* Cut the strawberries in half and ad the warm rhubarb compote and fresh basil.
(After taking this picture I cut the fresh basil and added it to the compote & strawberries)

I think this dessert would taste even better with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or a large piece of chocolate cake.

Anna Vie

Last week I showed you the artwork and name of a new project I am working on.

So what is this all about?
Well I am starting my own line. 
All silk blouses inspired by two vintage pieces in my closet which were my moms.
Think scandinavian basics with a Parisian feel! 
If you want to follow my journey towards launching day September the 6th 2013 like the ANNA VIE facebook page here  

I'll place inspiration pictures everyday on that page.
This is one of the most exciting things I have ever done, so I want to share it with you.

Please follow with ANNA VIE with facebook

There are a lot of recipes on the net and this is one of them to get you started.
I also put some walnuts in the mixture.

Paint it white!

Our walls needed a fresh layer of white paint and while painting the sun made a beautiful rainbow in the white paint.
How about those colors and that texture.
I think very inspirational!

Heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time....

This heartbreaking image has been taken by an Iraqi artist in an orphanage.
The little girl has never seen her mother, so she drew a mom on the ground and fell asleep with her.

As a mother this is tearing me apart 
and literally made me cry when I saw this picture on the net.

When it comes to accessories I love scarfs and shoes (are shoes accessories?)
And in the scarf department I want it in 100% silk, color and with an amazing print.
This one by Jago Designs is a favorite. That red mow-hawk on the sweet bird...I love it!
