iceland / blue lagoon

our first stop in iceland was the blue lagoon. the color of the water is really stunning. the best part, I think, may have been the silica gel available by the scoopful at a few stations in the water.. its made of clay deposits in the water & is awesome for your skin. its also really fun to play with beforehand

oslo / to the airport..

view from the train to the airport in oslo. it has just snowed a bit, very pretty & still.

( store / resting )

excuse me

I said this a couple of days ago, and then rethought.. I should just put the store on vacation along with me

I'll re-open nov. 26th.. new items will include sheepskins, vintage clothing, jewelry & wool throws

feel free to contact me [ info(at)shopmetrode(dot)com ] in the meantime, I'll do my best to get back to you quickly!

( tomorrow ) we go


I'm not much of an over-packer, but there's always the slight urge to take it all. I thought today: when you want to take 4 (of one thing), take 2
