Welcome to my blog.

After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general, especially my travels).

Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
Japanese food.
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
I was lucky to be back in 2015, 2016 and 2017 thanks to the fact that we now have family living in California.
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.

I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).

I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!

I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

Sunday market / Søndagsmarked

Sometimes I pack all my braided jewelry into a trolley and go off to some marked.
Last weekend I went to Oslo to sell, chat with other designers and make new contacts at the design market at "Blå".
Weather was beautiful, sunshine and not too cold.

This is what my table look like:
 I´ve put a box under the tablecloth for hight. Then there´s some Japanese artifacts, like a cup and a wooden sake cup.

I´m wondering to get a black table cover and also some better displays for the bracelets, maybe a long tube?
Please hit me with good suggestions! I must be able to carry all my stuff in a trolley + maybe an extra bag. Sometimes I have a car, but most of the time I commute by public transport.
I´ve got a couple of frames spray-painted and chinaware to "serve" my bracelets on.
I still need an even better way to display them and make them look their best....

Å, ja: Husk "Håndlaga 2012" - jeg blir veldig, veldig glad for nominasjoner i kategori 5. Link på høyre side øverst.... :)
