The wonderful island of Fårö celebrates the end of the summer this Saturday with Fårönatta ... if you are anywhere in the vicinity you should get yourself there, it sounds like a fabulous evening.

Restaurang Simunds (!/pages/Restaurang-Simunds/117260525023171) is offering a range of food and entertainment for the evening ... grill, bar, music, Icelandic horses, and a market with lots of goodies including the first international appearance of fatcat felt!

I'm only just back from my first visit to Fårö and busy preparing for the exhibition so I'm really sad to be missing it, if you do visit, please share your photos so I can see what I missed.

Here's to a great Fårönatta.
