This week manos is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11-3 pm but the shop is closed on Thursday! It is because we’re holding a decal event for a big group and will be relocating to the café building for this.

After the weekend the shop will be closed for winter and will re-open again on Thursday February 4th.

The webshop is open as usual every day!

Illums window

We packed up Lisa’s exhibition today and the compost soil went back to where it belong. On Wednesday I’ll be re-decorating the shop and I found some display inspiration in Copenhagen last week.

Christmas combination tea

The webshop will be re-stocked as well this week with desirable presents!

“compost” at manos

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Here are some images from the current exhibition at manos, ceramics by Elisabeth Ottebring and the theme is compost. The earth under the glass is certainly from the compost. Lisa’s ceramics will be in the webshop on Monday. See the images bigger here.

This weekend, 29-30th November, manos will have a visitor. Batoul from flowersflow will come with “julgrupper” (Christmas flowers). She has told me that one ingredient will be Hellebore which is one of my favourite flowers…

I will also start a sale of tealight holders this weekend, perfect gift for dinner parties and a wonderfully calming little object when lit!

manos has got a new boutique desk from the 1950’s!
I saw a beautiful curved desk in an article about the General Store in Melbourne several years ago and I’ve been searching for something like it since then. Now, a curved shop desk from the 1950’s isn’t easy to come by in Sweden so I’m really pleased with what I’ve found at last!


More good news from manos is that the vine is thriving after having been ill with a nasty disease that I now know how to treat. Perhaps next year I’ll even get some grapes?

There are two glass panels in the floor at manos, covering up large holes in the ground where the quite beautiful looking weeds has taken over. These holes attract a lot of attention, from grown ups and younger people alike. Last weekend two girls were convinced they could see frogs down there amongst the greenery, they even got their dads on their hands and knees looking for the frogs ;)

Once upon a time (1860) when the green house was built there were wood burning stoves in these holes, spreading their warmth in flues under the floor to keep the right climate for the plants.
