daylight saving time is over

daylight saving time (or summertime) is over
[the extra hour of sleep was wonderful]
candlelight time has begun
and i must admit
the living illuminated by candlelight
also has its charms

the twin trees

Someone in the United Kingdom asked me to make her a similar tree, like the stamped x-mas version. Preferably as precise as possible. It turned out quite successful (at least i think) and reminds me of the old school game: 'find the 7 differences'

picture sense

picture sense by wood & wool stool
picture sense, a photo by wood & wool stool on Flickr.

in the kitchen
two brushes in a small container
nothing special
so it seems
and yet i sometimes see a 'picture'
before i even grab my camera

is it a strange deviation?
taking pictures in your head, without a camera

often i do take the picture,
but more often it remains a picture in my head

the circus story

The Circus Apartments in Berlin are housed in a brand new, state-of-the-art building and interior designer Sandra Ernst is bringing her good taste and attention to detail to make the place shine.

Beyond that, what feel is truly luxurious about The Circus Apartments is the luxury of space. The apartments range from a comfortable and roomy 60m² to a spectacular 180m², which means it can be the location for almost anything you can dream of, from a romantic week for two to a supper club with friends, a photoshoot on the roof-terrace or a film-screening in the living room.

I'm very excited there's a wood & wool stool in all three brand new Circus Apartements in Berlin.

from the city of light

on both sides of the bed
a shining reminder of Paris

folded a wire ball
unfolded a flower

a transparent design
you can clamp down
(or hang on the hook)
with a light switch on the light itself
and a very long cable;

brilliant bedside lamps

deux jours a paris

There's always plenty of things to discover in Paris.
First of all, traveling with Thalys seemed a relief (7am departure from Rotterdam and at 9.30am drinking coffee on a terrace near Gare du Nord)
This time we walked 'all' the little side streets in le Marais.
Merci is a new favorite(!) and we had a wonderful lunch in the basement. At the end of the day we checked in at Mama Shelter, a cool hotel right behind Père Lachaise.
After dinner we had a midnight visit at the Eiffel Tower.
The next morning we walked via Pont Neuf (haven't participated the "love locks" craze) to Saint Germain.
We walked a marathon in two days (luckily I was smart enough to wear my red Adidas) and tired but satisfied we were happy to relax for some hours on the train.

fresh from the colored woods - x mas trees for sale!

It's the 4th year of the 'green' tree already.
Though it's only Oktober and you feel like it's way too early to even think about Chirstmas, these trees are for sale now.
I've sold the first one in June this year, so you don't have to feel ashamed...
The traditional x-mas trees are € 25 and the stamped version is € 30 (excluding shipping costs)
The stamped version has already been sold and is just an example. You can have your tree stamped with your own personal text.
Just send me an e-mail...

[stamped] wood & wool x-mas tree

The traditional wood & wool x-mas trees will be for sale soon.
It's still early, but this tree is 'allowed' throughout the year.
For the next few days, I'll be chopping wood.
Saturdaynight you can pick yourself a nice tree from the wood & wool x-mas tree stall.
Apart from the usual tree you can also order a tree with a stamped text.
For example [a very merry x-mas and a happy new year] or your own personal text.
The price of a recycled 'green' and reusable tree is still € 25 and a stamped version will cost you € 5 extra.
Armed with ax and saw I go now into the woods, looking for some pink, red and pale blue wood...
