happy 2013, a photo by wood & wool stool on Flickr.
HAPPY 2013 to all.
Saved me a trip to the bottle bank and with some iron wire, glass jars turn into brilliant outdoor lights.[One more dark day to join the give away!]
Minne, the oldest, is a journalism student and writes weekly sports reports for the newspaper.
Recently he asked me, to take his picture for a press card.
Sure, I said.
At the moment I took the camera he could not possibly get a serious face.
We had lots of fun. I don't know which photo he finally chose for his press card.
I chose the last blurry one of half Minne to frame.
Here at home, it's getting slowly but surely really Christmassy. Unpacking the old traditional Christmas goodies gives me every year that Aha experience. I've found some 'new' items in Lammie's shop; the bright pink bauble is vintage and also is the shiny vine leaf.
A huge thanks to all the entries on the give away and remember you can still participate!
Pippa is looking forward to draw a winner on Friday night...
Photos of my work have been published in THE NEW ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CROCHET TECHNIQUES by Jan Eaton.
I got two books. One is showing off in my magazine rack and the other one I give away (signed by moi)
Want to improve your crochet skills?
Leave a message and I will ask Pippa to choose a winner on Friday.
three x three x-mas trees in the shop!
Wool cupboard turns into Christmas cabinet.
For the occasion I stored the wool temporary in another place.
This to make space for some small collections of Christmas stuff;
a row of angels on top
then a row of birds,
followed by a row of baubles
a row with a hodgepodge of decorations (bells, church, Santa, snow globe with nativity scene)
a row of all kinds of animals (peacock, deer, fish, squirrel)
a row of hearts
and at the bottom there are some empty squares...(the time being)
The typography tree is made of cards with letters (and creatures) created by legendary British designer Alan Fletcher, from the book Anteaters to Zebras.
The memory cards are from Tate Modern.
Look what I've found in the Christmas box on the attic; the stars of 2011! (and now I can recall, the yellow one I bought in the sale after Christmas...)
Well, more is more!
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.
Enjoy hunting & decorating your x-mas tree!
The handmade trees are for sale in my Etsy shop.
The newest wood & wool x-mas trees are sixteen* Suomi trees. I've made them today, while it was snowing! The handmade trees are now for sale in my Etsy shop.
Have fun hunting out a x-mas tree!
Only in December!
