~ The strange little box ~

The last few days I've been out on my family island without electricity, internet or even peers. I've felt rather lonely and all that alone time has given me too much time to think, and all the bad thoughts I'm carrying around is coming back to the surface. I've cried a lot, but I've tried to do fun and healing things. I'ts kind of strange to say, but I've really missed social medias these days... Kind of ironic of this Nature Girl :p I've never really been interested in gadgets, though. At times I actually fear them! :o And I've been called a luddite and a technophobe who thinks all forms for modern technology is evil. And that is not too far from the truth :3 I did demonize smartphones earlier, especially the iPhone. I saw them as the ulitmate symbol of materialism (still do sometimes) and wouldn't be caught dead with it. I was actually afraid someone would mistake my old iPod for an iPhone (the one that I got for free in 2010 from the Norwegian youth environmental group Natur...

~ New sewing pattern ~

I just recieved this pattern in the mail! Wee :DIt will be the base for one of my new sewing projects this autumn.

~ VP and a surprise gift ~

I recently recieved a surprise gift in the mail. It was fromLars, the founder of one of my favourite groups on facebook calledVeggispreik(VP)orOpplysningskontoret for matglede (OMG)(which is something like 'Veggiechat' / 'The informational office for food enjoyment' in english). Their mission is to inspire people to opt out meat and other animal products, to be as plantbased as possible, and hopefully make people realise it's a redundant part of their diet :) Reducing your intake (and consumption) of animal products is one of the most environmentally friendly things you can do, so this is a page everyone should join :D It's mostly in norwegian, but I am sure my non-norwegian readers can find similar groups that they can join ;) Read more on their bloghere!They were also featured in an article from NRK, which you can read here.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The gift package I recieved consisted of: - A little note with the VP logo - with som encouraging words fr...

~ Organic sewing thread ~

I know there are a lot of souls and creatures out there sharing my passion for sewing. And since I like to sew, and has a lot of sewing project, there is one thing I absolutely can not be without: The sewing thread. I've wondered where I could get some that were both organic/ecological and ethicly produced. I found a danish web-store on line, and I was lucky to find the threads of my desire to be half priced! Yesterday I recieved them in the mail, and here you have my little collection. Visitwww.markno.dkto buy some too :) You can find more threadshereandhere. - Do you have any experience with organic threads? Can you recommend any? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ Love and light ~ #sy #søm #tråd # sytråd #økologisk #natur #miljø #miljøvennlig #grønn #inspirasjon #Gaiadóttir

~ In the Light of Art Nouveau ~

Last week I had a little look in one of the local charity shops and almost got a little heart attack when these beauties revealed them selves to me. Three lamps, clearly influenced by art nouveau was laying on a shelf, waiting for me to find them. This one came home with me. And so did two of these. They are magnificent, and much more exquisite in real life! :) I also found some lamps quite similar to these online. Even more delicate, but also a lot more expensive. You can buy them here, here and here. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ Love and light ~ #lampe #lamper #lys #artnouveau #blomst #kunst #brukt #bruktbutikk #secondhand #natur #miljø #grønn #engelsk #Gaiadóttir

~ Queen of the Flea Market ~

In Norway we have a long and old tradition with flea markets. Marching bands all over the country, especially the big cities, collect "trash and treasures" from their local community and sell them in a big market at their schools, that lasts over a weekend. The markets usually takes place in springtime and autumn, and to keep updated about the coming markets, you can go here:http://loppemarked.info/ I'm addicted to these markets, and I can't count how many I've been to during this year! It's so much fun going treasure hunting! You can find so many unike objects at a reasonable price, you don't support any bad or unethical industries and the money goes to a good, local cause :) (The marching bands are a big part of the Norwegian Constitution Day, 17th of May.) It is usually very crowed, especially when they open, and people fight over the best parts. Luckily for me, I tend to look like "different" things than the mass, as well as showing up early. I mostly look for browns, greens a...
