Two weekends ago I worked with the annual KHVC craft fair. Didn't tell you too much about it! You are welcome next year, it's great fun with all the craftspeople who really enjoys meeting each other and have conversations with the visitors. And this time the weather gods were on our side.
This year's competition for most interesting market stall was won by Annika Svensson. I couldn't agree more with the jury, her space was really extraordinary. Annika makes huge tiled stoves as well as delicate little flowers like these. Old post with stoves here.
Saturday Annika Svensson opens an exhibition at the refreshing Dalslands museum (in Swedish, but look at photos and you see what I mean). Good luck Annika!
Tonight at Platina, Stockholm, Sofia Björkman
