not only bright and neon 'jackets'
there are also pastel requests
and you're never too young for a wood & wool stool
some babies have one already before they are born

Yesterday we were invited by Lammie.
Lammie of Lammie verkoopt.
She also makes all the bright bouquets that we sell at the Villa Augustus market.
She's living in a house, só charming. (there's so much to see, I could spend hours overthere...)
After a cup of coffee in her beautiful flower garden,
we had a walk through the woods of Dordwijk.
It's an incredibly place in the middle of Dordrecht,
but it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere.
Walking through the small forest,
we gathered chestnuts to feed the deer.
What a place!
It still exists, it's a kind of an enchanted forest!

Last year I sold my old grey 2cv.
Whenever I see a 2CV on the road, I still miss my car and I'm planning to buy another oldtimer.
Especially on summer days (like today, yay!) I miss the open canvas roof, which you can roll up and change the car within a minute into a real convertible.
Yesterday Henk brought me this paper version of a 2cv van.

yes it's true
september 21
no escape
after a non-summer
autumn really started

cozy inside
on the couch
with a warm blanket
and all that sort of stuff.

well it has never been my favorite season,
but fortunately the fall fashion, on the other hand, is an exception.
i love boots and cardigans and colorful tights and wrist worms.
okay, let's make the best of this time of year...

wood & wool wonderland

wood & wool
together so simple
and therefore so beautiful

Never get bored,
the beauty of some colors together.
Look at that
red, white, brown and gray,
it pops!

yay my sandra juto wrist worms arrived today!

Whenever I visited Sandra Juto's shop last year,
I could never decide which pair to pick.
If there are more colors available,
it always gets difficult for me.
Which color?
Tweed or wool?
Maybe I could make them myself?
No, I wanted the original ones so badly.
The Wrist Worms, handmade by Sandra Juto.
My hands freeze quite quickly.
So last week I went to Wrist Worms Wonderland again and this time I've put a pair in my basket and went to the checkout.
No doubt.
Today I found the lovely package from Berlin on my desk when I got home.

I'm ready for autumn!

Today the postman
brought something special,
thé Dottie Angel book!
My heart was beating faster,
when opening the envelope
reading the super sweet note from Tif...
Long awaited,
and at last I can hold it myself
and browse
and view
and read.
Within a glance, I recognize Tif in every tiny detail;
it's beyond 'perfectly peachy'

Today is officially
and I'm gonna settle on the couch
to enjoy every single page!

New [wood & wool stool] cards,
business cards to be precise,
similar to the postcards.

They sure look cute, hanging on a stool leg.

Today the first stools 'tagged new style' are off to New York City and Downunder Queensland.

Sometimes I wish I could bring them myself...

wooooooooooooooool by wood & wool stool
wooooooooooooooool, a photo by wood & wool stool on Flickr.

Piles of wool
in all colors
I have a wool addiction
I think ...
there aren't many yarn shops around
and often dull
it doesn't matter
when I see one,
I go inside
and always come out with new stock.

A while ago, this was inside my ever changing color wool unit and lots of people took a glimpse inside.

summer diner in the garden

Last May the two of us celebrated Henk's birthday together in Barcelona and that's why we've planned weeks ago, to have another birthday party at home with friends.

Henk's favorite way to celebrate; in the garden, having dinner together with loved ones at one big table and good summer food and drinks.

This year the long hot summer evenings, were very rare and we've only had a handful of them.

Last night was apparently the most summery evening of the season and we've celebrated it until midnight. (you will have earned it).

Thanks, dear friends for an unforgettable evening!
