Urban gardening in Gothenburg / Växtverket

A splendid, urban garden centre has opened in Majorna here in Gothenburg, stuffed with good looking plants and garden accessories. This innovative place is called Växtverket and is run by Lisa & Lisa.

Exhibition Karin Cyrén / Welcome!

14/5 – 29/5 2016

Vernissage 12 – 16.00, 14/5

Fine Little Day has the great honor to present a new artist collaboration, where Karin Cyrén has created a limited edition collection of posters, soon available in the shop. The posters and original pieces are exhibited at Fine Little Day in Spinneriet in Lindome, Sweden.

Karin Cyrén travels between the abstract and more figurative storytelling, unforced and self-explained, in playful movements. Details, color combinations and shapes intermingle flighty and floating with soft and sharp brushstrokes. Seemingly driven by lust, in it’s own direction.

Fine Little Day has the great honor to present a new artist collaboration, where Cyrén has created a limited edition collection of posters, soon available in the shop. The posters and original pieces are exhibited at Fine Little Day in Spinneriet in Lindome during the second halv of May, with vernissage 14/5, 12 – 4 pm.

Cyrén has participated in exhibitions at, among others, Grafikens Hus in Mariefred, Swedish Institute in Paris and Museo Civico Archeologico in Bologna. She studied at Konstfack in Stockholm and Tohoku University of Art and Design in Yamagata, Japan. She has been working a lot in the field of children’s books, where she has both illustrated texts written by other authors and created books of her own, like ”Strandstaden” and ”Vem hämtar vem?” with Siri Ahmed Backström. These too will be possible to buy in Fine Little Day’s store during the exhibition period.

Very welcome!

Short from Zanzibar

Just wanted to share some pics from our trip to Zanzibar, which is a series of islands on the Indian Ocean, an archipelago not a single island, outside Tanzania. Very paradise-ish. We stayed at the Z Hotel.

How to whittle

Everything a beginner needs to know. The new book “Tälj!” (written in Swedish) by Hannes Dahlrot and Henrik Francke about how to whittle, get me going.  I want to make myself a precious bowl, hook or maybe a hand-carved wooden spoon à la Ariele Alasko.

A very special house for sale

This is the place where we’ve spent every Christmas (except for a few) the last 18 years. Warmed ourselves in front of the fireplace after wandering around in the oak woods looking for wild boars which we never met. This is where we’ve spent soft summers on the lawn playing dart and picking wild strawberries. This is where we’ve had delicious dinners in the gazebo and watched tv half the night together. My in-laws’ house in Skåne. Here photos and more.

Visning nu på lördag, 23 Januari 2016.
