Raw cinnamon buns

When you surprise yourself by baking. This is how I did.

DOUGH

1 cup cashew

1 cup oats

1 cup dates

4 tbsp coconut oil

water as needed

1/2 cup coconut flakes

FILLING

1/2 cup dates

water

cinnamon

cardamom

Place the dough ingredients into a food processor and blend until dough-like, ad more water if needed. Place the dough in a refrigerator for a while.

Run the filling ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth. Roll out the dough between two baking papers. Cover the dough with filling and roll into a cylinder. Place the dough in the refrigerator again for about 10 minutes before cutting.

Confusing with the apples I know. Forget about them, or use combined with the dates.

Swantje Hinrichsen

A couple of days ago me and Fine Little Day store colleague @peggylainen jumped on a plane to Germany to visit graphic designer and illustrator Swantje Hinrichsen aka @swantjeundfrieda, who lives in an old brick house in Münster. We were suppose to shoot a part of Fine Little Day store’s new catalogue there, and also do a little home tour.

I was planning to write something about Swantje’s education, career etc. in this post but I I’ll skip it, you can google that.

Just want to tell that I found a “refrigerator friend” in Swantje. A term originated (I believe) in the book “Bowling Alone“. That would be a friend who can walk right in the door, open up your refrigerator and look for something to eat, without thinking much about it.  The thing is we spent hours and hours at this place without realizing it, and also got our life’s most tastiest Avocado cake. The lady sure had a the gift of hospitality, this was a place where to feel free to be yourself. We had a good time, thanks again Swantje!

The exhibition starting on Saturday

Tomorrow me and my colleague Ulrika will drive down to Landskrona / Hemslöjden i Skåne to hang these, and other treasures for the Väva Spis exhibition which will open on Saturday (20 May, 2017). Above the “Spismatta” Stove rug, designed by me and weaved by Kristina Bourghardt Hattenbach. Below the “Svanentröjan” Swan sweather, with a lightly remodeled pattern motive from the archives approximately from 1780–1820. See the original here.

The sweather will be up for sale in the Fine Little Day store, as well as at Hemslöjden i Skåne on Saturday.

The wool sweaters are knitted by Mariedal Design.

Also, we will have a jacquard woven, durable and easy-to-care version of the Spismatta rug up for grabs as well here. You can pre-book all the products at the site.

Väva Spis / Hemslöjden / Fine Little Day

“Spiskläde”, the stove apron and the “Spismatta”, the stove rug, designed with my mind on an old an old love, the stove as a graphic visual treat. Also with my thoughts pondering over the sceneries in which the woman (who made the textiles in the #handicraftarchives) sat in their kitchens embroidering, sewing or whatever they did.

Apron, printed by Matilda Ekström Rosenberg and sewn by Satoko Kobayashi Fridolf. Rug (one of three), weaved by Kristina Bourghardt Hattenbach.

As I’ve wrote before, the past year I’ve been working together with Hemslöjden i Skåne in a project called #handicraftarchives / Väva Spis where I’ve been developed a series of unique items inspired by Stiftelsen Skånsk Hemslöjd and and Östra Skånes Hemslöjdsförening‘s amazing archives / collections of handicraft objects, in collaboration with local craftsmen and small scale producers from Skåne and Västra Götaland. The results will be shown in an exhibition at Hemslöjden in Landskrona starting May 20, 2017. Read more about the project at www.vavaspis.com

Besides an insight of an existing amazing handicrafts archive, this project has offered an obvious and uplifting presence of women’s history, which I’ve found very inspiring. I’m also greatful for the meetings and collaborations with the talented, today living women who has been involved in this project one way or another, each and every one of them. The below embroidered cushion cover from the 1800s is one of the brilliant textile treasures I’ve stumbled on in the archives.

Above my ladies, dancing.
