Good wood - ok so this one’s a bit random but I kinda love it all the same. The ‘Cloud House’ in Springfield, Missouri, by Matthew Mazzotta is a cabin with rainwater flowing from the cloud above to recreate the soothing sound of rain on a tin roof, allowing you a little escape from the everyday, anyday.

Ahah!  @Sarahlinden is a genius and figured out a way so no one gets left out again.  Starting now, the rad Typewriter Series #300 Tin Camping Mugs are on Pre-Order, and the quantity available is unlimited, so you can order when you wish.  Now, in order to make this possible, what I’ll have to do is wait until enough orders come in to place my manufacturing order (they require these to be made in bulk, not print on demand) and then when they arrive, you who have paid, will get your mugs shipped immediately.  Essentially, you’ll be waiting the same amount of time, except for now, you’ll officially have one (or more) reserved for you so you don’t miss out again.  So, head to bit.ly/tkgmugs and place your pre-orders, the more the merrier, as the more of you that order, the quicker your orders will find their way to your loving hands and sipping lips!  I love ya.

Today February 6th is the Sami national day.

The Sami are one of the earliest ethnic groups in Norway,Finland,Sweden and Russia. They are considered a part of the indigenous population. From old times there have been Sami people that works the mountains, but also along the coast there have been Sami. From the old days the sea Sami was fishermen and the mountain Sami herded reindeer.

Language

The Sami have their own languages which falls under the Uralic language group. Around 6 of the Sami languages can still be learned in school and is spoken in different areas. That all comes down to what area you are from. 

Sami crafts(Duodji)

The Sami lived far from people, therefore they traditionally produced most of their own stuff like cups,knives,handbags,chests,infant beds,toys etc. Notice the use of traditional Sami patterns and coulors. Today everything made after the old traditions are considered Sami handicraft. 

Clothing(Gákti)

The gákti is worn both in ceremonial contexts and while working, particularly when herding reindeer. The traditional Sami costume is characterized by a dominant color adorned with contrast colored bands, plaits, pewter embroidery, tin art, and often a high collar. Like many other traditional clothing, they show what part you are from.
