Meanwhile he has quite a collection, that no longer fits on his bookshelf.
So he piled the books by color.
Hey, that looks familiar.

Try your luck at Fred's FB page for a pair of warm Shabbies...(the photo of the 100% wool boots & blanket from last year is now posted by Fred de la Bretoniere)
Since the visit of the former 'crochet students' last Saturday, the house looks like a flower shop.
Thank you sweeties!

The oblong pillow project is finished and the pillow is reversible and equally beautiful on both sides.
It's bright and shines like a diamond in the living room.
The winner of the Living & More giveaway is ....
Nicole, please send me your address?

This week we made a new wardrobe in the hall.
A scrapwood wall with three rows of hooks.
Eighteen hooks, so plenty of room for the whole family.

In the mail I received a lovely publication in the January issue of the German lifestyle magazine Living & More.
Quite nice of the editors in Germany to sent me two copies.
One magazine, I keep myself (for the archive) and the other one I would like to give away.
Leave a message and after the weekend we pick a winner!
It actually doesn't matter if you can or can not read German, it's an inspirational interior magazine anyway.

Once this old chair was green.
After a long time in the garden, the paint was peeling off.
For the time being the seat is unpainted, slightly sanded and stamped.
Until we have figured a new color...

I am very pleased with the pillow p♦r♦o♦j♦e♦c♦t so far.
The pillow cover is growing slowly, diamond by diamond.
Two more 'rows' to go, then the handmade oblong pillow cover is finished (at least one side of the pillow)
I like it so much already and it's wonderful to design something new.
I don't have a ♦ crochet pattern, but I figured it out myself.
The wool gets kind of knotty and I can not watch a movie and crochet ♦ at the same time (yet).

it's my project from a distance.
I pinned the wool to the wood for a while.
Now I know what it will be...
(new projects often start this way) to be continued...

Of course you can also use it as a [what to wear tomorrow wall peg]!
This peg saves me a lot time in the morning.
If you already know what to wear, it will save you a lot of annoyance about your outfit.
Hang your clothes on the peg the night before and you can simply dress, instead of trying everything...

To be more precise it was Tangerine Tango according to Pantone.
Well it has been my favorite color for quite some years (especially in the interior) and I will stick to it for some time...
The color of 2013 is Emerald.
Want to know all about Emerald and the colorful history?
They even have a color of the day.
