[no whining]

Some of the text requests for a sign are so cool.
I can imagine the [no whining] sign ends up on someone's desk...

chocolate letter chandelier

Yay! Sinterklaas is back in Holland.

The chandelier in the restaurant of Villa Augustus, we decorated with traditional chocolate letters (milk, dark and white chocolate) last week. Oh and watch out, if you can't resist to take a bite; the red ones are in vintage metal flavour.

hartjesslinger, originally uploaded by wood & wool stool.

I made a D.I.Y. design for 101 interior magazine.

Start by making the hearts for the garland and then pull them on a thin piece of sisal rope.

The ♥ pattern you can find here step by step. Piece of cake!

Deze hartjesslinger staat in de 101 zelfmaakspecial, een bijlage van het decembernummer, dat vanaf 23 november in de winkel ligt.

Eerst haak je de hartjes voor de slinger en vervolgens rijg je ze aan een dun stukje sisal- of kokostouw.

De werkbeschrijving van de gehaakte hartjes vind je hier stap voor stap. Piece of cake!

Want a 'green' x-mas tree?

Though it's only November and it may seem a little early to think about Christmas, it's never too soon to order a wood & wool x-mas tree.

autumn in antwerp

fiskebar, originally uploaded by wood & wool stool.

A visit to Antwerp always feels like a mini vacation.

This time the M HKA is the main reason for our visit. A long walk through the 'other' Antwerp, brought us to wonderful places. Walking across the Marnixplaats, I fell in love with the terrace of the Fiskebar. On the other side of the street is Vitrin, also a very nice café. And I had my first Bionade at Bitter Zoet after the museum visit.
