The story of the “Vikingr” book nook
On this cold spring morning, the still and chilly waters mirror the mountains. A smell of resin and wood drifts in the air. We set sail at dawn, even before the blade of the first sun ray pierced through the mountain tops. All of us can feel this thirst for adventure that only the taste of salt and iron will be able to quench as we are sailing to East Anglia, just before following new sea routes to the south to sell our spoils of war. We sail under fair winds. Our langskip slides on the waves unrestrained. The blood of the vikings is already boiling as the fjord is already disappearing in the foggy horizon. Heavy clouds are gathering in the west, two crows have been following our ship for a few hours. The gods are on our sides and our mighty deeds will be sung in songs of glory.
La Loupiote – veilleuses féeriques is a shop that was created in 2020 by the artist “La Loupiote”, a word which has a double meaning in French.
It refers to a small light or a small child. How fitting this name is for someone who creates night-lights in the shapes of small fairy houses !
These magical small lamps which are inspired by the enchanting world of the Faery Folk illuminate the eyes of young and old people alike. The fairy houses glimmer in a sweet light and bring a touch a dream at night fall in the room they decorate, as well as they soothe the ones who are afraid of the dark.
All of the night-lights are unique and handmade with many details, much care and patience. Each of them tells an authentic story and invites you into their worlds – they seem to come all the way from a mossy undergrowth, a flowery meadow, a haunted castle ou even on old library. One holds into their hands a piece of an intimate dream handmade in the workshop just for you.
