The hallway table.
As in all other places in the house, the composition of the hallway table changes regularly; a lamp, a vase, plates, prints or painting on the wall... (a large basket under the table with scarves and gloves for all family members during winter)
However, the yellow basket is always on the table and everybody throws in his or her keys, when entering the house.

We have been working on the woodwork part of wood & wool stool.
Making stool legs from scrap wood planks.
I love treasure hunting between the colored wood in our shed and sometimes even hit upon a rockstar.

Ever since I saw the half blue Ercol love seat at Anthropologie, I'm in love with that wooden design bench!
They are quite pricey new and a vintage bench is hard to find, or priceless.
This remake of the wooden sixties bench is such a wonderful and affordable alternative.
I love it!

My new [ik hou jou] postcard needs a small explanation for the non-Dutch speakers;
[ik hou van jou] is the Dutch way to say [i love you]
By leaving out the word [van], it means [i keep you]
Such a super sweet card in the rack!

Our kitchen, this Friday morning.
The kitchen is actually very basic, white and bright. The red makes it...(without dominating)
I love this place!

This week we suddenly had a few hours of sunshine in the garden.
I dropped everything and quit what I was working on to go outside and enjoy this moment in the garden. With the sun around the garden looks so summery.
The whites get even whiter and the shadows are stunning. The shadylace parasol remained closed, nonetheless the tiny basket made a nice 'shady lace' effect on the fence.
PS: Can we get back the sunshine, please?!

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 thoroughly enjoyed the wood & wool work and have lots of inspiration for 2013!

Christmas countdown has begun!
Only 2 weeks until Christmas Eve, so let's proceed with the x-mas decorations at home.
Time to unpack the hand painted wooden feather tags (by The Great Lakes Goods). We scored them at Anthropologie in London.
This morning I've also hung the colored lights in the tree in the front yard.

The wood share of the stool,
gets for some reason less attention than the wool share.
Today's the turn of the tough wood work!
