let's stay inside

december 2018 december 2018 december 2018 december 2018 december 2018 december 2018 december 2018

In my atelier, the very first woodwoolstool, I've made in 2007 standing next to a steel vintage stool. They are both blue and dressed. The vintage bed end coverlets serve as curtains. An embroidered postcard from Marrakech in a handmade scrapwood photo frame and the disco ball popped up between the Christmas decorations. A glance in the bamboo sunburst mirror.

In the living room the Hare Family and paper Christmas stars are lined up. And although it's freezing outside, the bougainvillea in the kitchen window sill is in bloom for the umpteenth time...

two new tweed yarn pairs

fingerless mittens

For the ones that can't crochet, I've made two pairs of fingerless mittens in tweed yarn.
One pair in dusty pink & black and the other pair in dark green & dusty pink.
You can find them in my Etsy shop.

If you rather want to make the mittens yourself, you can also find the fingerless mittens crochet pattern in my Etsy shop. It's available a DUTCH and ENGLISH version.

A fast, fun and easy crochet project.
They are very practical, warm and unisex.
Moreover, it's an excellent handmade December gift.

Little by little it's starting to get Christmassy in here with copper wire string lights and december decorations.

sustainable & eco friendly evergreen

evergreen xmas tree evergreen xmas tree evergreen xmas tree

Do you fancy one of the three sustainable x-mas trees?

You can order them in my ETSY SHOP and you will definitely have it in time for Christmas.

The utterly cute hare family that I bought years ago at Anthropologie also has made its appearance from the attic.

They are my traditional models on the recycled x-mas trees.

If you want an unique and eco friendly Christmas tree that lasts for years and takes up little space, you have 3 pieces to choose from.

hello december

handmade beanies handmade beanies

And all of a sudden it's December...

It's beanie season.

I brought a new beanie collection for you from Marrakech last October.

Striped, uni or with a harlequin pattern, all unique, unisex and one size. The soft and warm beanies are very comfortable to wear.

Would you like to wear a beanie this season? Or maybe surprise someone else with an original December gift?

Just have a look in my ETSY SHOP and choose your favorite one! The colorful moroccan beanies are all handmade in moroccan crochet style by Aisha.

Below a portrait of Aisha I took in April. She's the sweetest and every day working on her handmade pieces on Place des Epices. It would be cool if you support her by purchasing an original handmade gift for yourself or someone else.
