ampersand & eek

ampersand & eek, originally uploaded by wood & wool stool.

I'm a fan of the ampersand and Piet Hein Eek.

The ampersand is cool and my favorite character, even if it is not a real character.

In HTML the & always looks a bit strange, with 'amp' stuck behind.

& about Piet Hein Eek:
Besides all the scrap wood designs, this table lamp is one of my favorites too.

The wire lamp with Italian silk tie shade is a stunning design and I'm not fan of neckties.
Never thought I ever could be so happy, accompanied by an orange dotted tie.

ahoi, originally uploaded by wood & wool stool.

The Villa Augustus market cafe was closed the last three days, to undergo refurbishment.
An excellent chance for all market colleagues to get together.
We had a delicious 'around the world diner' at Andrea's beautiful home on Tuesday.
Everyone had brought something and the hodgepodge of dishes tasted surprisingly good together.

Today the renewed market café is open again!

(wood & word sign for Andrea, ahoi is her way to say goodbye)

aujourd'hui printemps

aujourd'hui printemps, originally uploaded by wood & wool stool.

On my desk:

Dottie Angel notebooks
and she's standing next to a wood & wool stool :) on the cover.

Recycled wool,
bits and pieces of yarn
that are no longer used and knotted together.
Not in order to save material,
just because I like it so much.

A postcard from Barcelona, received from Henk & Minne.
The colored laundry makes me cheerful.

And right in the middle
a vintage desk calendar,
in French,
which makes it even more chic.
It's not fully automatic
but by pushing the black button
a new day will begin.

lay the table

Lammie's new shop (brocante and very special stuff) in one of the many harbors in the old town of Dordrecht, is the scene for a 'blanket shoot'. You should really visit her shop at the Knolhaven no.15 (only open on Saturdays)

A 196-multi-colored-granny-squares blanket is ready to be shipped to France. Traditionally, the blanket must be photographed before departure. (certainly such a mega crochet project)

We bought the table and that's the wind beneath my skirt ...

a flowergarden

spring, originally uploaded by wood & wool stool.

it's March,
spring is near
the chestnut branches on the table
burst open as you look
no stopping
it's almost springtime
