Mildly interesting

Last weekend mr Igor and I went to Skördefesten in Lund. It's a harvest festival/farmers market and we really enjoyed it.

I spotted this lady wearing a cool, braided hair slide. I've never seen something like this before. It looked like it was made from braided wood and the picture doesn't entirely do it justice.  The lady told me it was made of willow.

Which made sense since she was sitting there working in willow. It's a traditional way of creating baskets and decorations and can even be used for larger objects like fences and the like.

It was a fun festival with lots of interesting foods. We brought a big bag home: Different cheeses, sauces, a bunch of different ecological juices, dressings, honey, spices and marmalade.

It also had a few exhibits like traditional folk dancing.
But no cool hair tools :(
