T-shirt customer

This is Anders from Oslo in his STRAND t-shirt. His mum says it is his favorite and that it still looks good after two years of use.
I'm so happy to hear this!
Want your own organic t-shirt with Mrs Cow? You can find several here, in my Epla shop.

Summertime is garlic time

My Summer holiday has started!
It's wonderfully sunny with a breeze outside. Perfect weather to dry clothes on the line.
And, it's finally time for some heavy garlic food.
I'm a teacher and try to avoid garlic when I work. When the holiday starts, I really crave some garlic.

Luckily, my garlic plants are ready to be harvested. They will separate into cloves after July and need to be lifted before that. Garlic is planted in August and harvested in July. (Bulbs bought from Solhatt, a Norwegian organic seed retailer.)

 Homegrown basil is never wrong...

Hi there!
I just thought I'd share an image of me printing in my 50's laundry room.
(In the background you can spot my lemon tree with a tiny lemon. It seemed to like to staying here during the winter.)
I have not been able to print much lately, but hopefully Summer will give lots of opportunities for this. I am about to order some lovely linen teatowels and will be focusing on towels for a while.

The photo is by Torbjørn Tandberg.
He is also giving classes in photography in Drammen, Norway.

The woods look magical...

The woods look magical today.
I wonder how many times they'll change during the day.
I'm busy with my student's exams these days. Really busy days.
But weekend is lovely. 
I hope you're enjoying your Saturday!

Tweed necktie with reindeer

I finished another Hunter's necktie today. The reindeer is printed in brown on a reused tweed fabric.
It's for sale in my Etsy shop and my Epla shop.

I'm on the lookout for new retailers for my designs. If you have any suggestions on good shops where you think my products could work, I'd be grateful if you'd let me know!

I just had to show you this magical rainbow my daughter spotted outside her window during a short thunder storm the other night. Doesn't it look wonderful?
