Welcome!

My name is Ingrid Galadriel and this is a blog about my adventures in history, crafting, farm life and nature. I am passionate about preservation, cultural history and the Viking age. When I'm not doing farm life activities I'm a project manager in Hands on History.

 I hope you have a nice stay!

Stay warm with tøffla

I can't really find a good word for Tøffla in English. Warm, knitted, slipper? 

Our house is old and cold so my aunt stopped by with a surprise gift. Tøffla for the whole family.

The hands of a true crafter. 

Thank you dear aunt. 


You make me Tøffla, I make you waffles & Coffee.

Slippery woolen slippers is a slippery slope to slipp down the slippery stairs. 

So I decided to make some leather soles.

Oh and I have to show you the scarf and mittens I bought in Iceland. 

With the Norwegian temperatures I can use these items from September to May... 

Stay warm!
