Norra Björke

Hej vänner and friends,

Summer is here and the magic light in Sweden is spreading it’s energy to all living things. Summer also means holidays and traveling. Here is a tips for you who like to tourist in Sweden, going to not the very well visited places and exploring nature. Outside Trollhättan in a village called Norra Björke, you can now visit the church and the on going exhibition there, under the event Norra Björke vägkyrka. Local artists are displaying their arts and crafts. Make sure the to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee and a waffle while you’re there.

Open 15-19th of June. For the whole program, you’ll find it here.

julmarknader = x-mas fairs

Christmas is upon us. Whoop, finally, yes! Best time of the year in so many ways. One of them are all the x-mas fairs round the world. Unfortunately åsakapop will only be showing in Sweden though.

Coming up next is Gunnebo slotts julmarknad. The old castle is beautiful in itself and perfect for catching the perfect Christmas feeling. Just hoping for a little bit of snow as on the picture. You can except buy x-mas presents, everything from art to food to scarfs, for both your loved ones and yourself, go on guided tours in the castle, taste porridge or have a classic x-mas lunch.

The x-mas fair will be the last 2 weekends of November, but make sure to make it until the first one, the 23-24/11 since åsakapop is only participating this weekend, both days between 11-17. Hope to see you there my friends. <3

Another day in Stockholm we walked around in Gamla stan, cozy but touristy. My friends tried classic Swedish food and I think they liked it.
Great city, great friends and a great day.

..of forests and field. Among cats and best friends. That’s where I’ve spend the best evenings this summer. In the “torpet”. Looking forward to dark autumn nights with lit candles as well.

Fallens Dagar 1

My Saturday in Trollhättan. The annual festival was held but due to the very very very nice weather most people where at the beach I think, so to be honest I had some time to kill between the costumers. I spent the time knitting on a muffler (never ending project), looking at people (what’s up with the wigs?) and eating Fairtrade bananas.
Though it was a nice experience I don’t think I will participate again if the market won’t change. It was basically just me in my genre. The others who had a booth/wagon/table where mostly selling, sorry my language, but crap. There where a few selling aloevera products, herbs and cherries which where nice, but apart from that there where mainly plastic, tacky thing no one need. This makes me sad and my heart ache. Consumers, please think twice before you by a plastic, leopard hat just for fun.

Next year I would like to invite friends and not yet friends that are creative and produces and designs things with their heart and not only to make money. Shall we start up an arts and craft fair? Would this be possible and well received in Trollhättan? If we where a few, say 10 or so I think we could make something good of it. Who are with me?

But thanks to all of you who visited me, bought a scarf or just said hi. Thanks thanks thanks!
