I'm a bit proud of the beautiful item in Jamie Magazine #8, about the garden (which is now so incredibly beautiful) and the kitchen of Villa Augustus (with recipes and a tiny picture of moi).

There is still much to discover in a stack of old Living magazines.

Tonight I have browsed them in the garden, looking for some fine summer holiday destinations.

to the loo [toedeloe]

This beautiful basic bag I bought last year at Merci in Paris.

Because it is not convenient for shopping (transparent and everything falls out), I decided to use it for 'backup roles'.

What else? In my element when I'm working on multiple projects simultaneously.

first class scrap wood given a second life

New in stock!
Beautiful original stained second hand wood.

Some wood gets a second life;
as a wood & wool stool,
or as a tree
or simply as a sign.

I do not know whether I'm more fond of wood or wool.
Wool can be found everywhere and in all colors.
Scrap wood is scarce and becoming increasingly difficult to find.
(it's jokingly called the new gold)

I am so thrilled with this pretty pile of wood and I'm wondering what it ultimately will be.

No summer here.
After the storm of yesterday the garden is flooded with rose leaves.

Between the dark clouds, there was an occasional fifteen minutes of sunshine.
Enjoying the Surprising lounger outside was no option, because it was windy and started raining again.

Fortunately, inside there is enough wool and there is plenty to do.

let the summer begin

Tomorrow is the beginning of summer.

The sun will reach its highest position above the horizon and it will be the longest day.

I'm looking forward to lots of sunshine. Let the summer begin!

the princess on the pea

A while ago I received a very precisely defined order for the princess on the pea from Laurence.

Nevertheless I made only ONE cover for the seats.

These two stools are now living in Bed & Breakfast La Princesse au Petit Pois somewhere in the Provence, France.

Over the years the wool cabinet has become full. Not just full, the cabinet is bursting with wool.

At the spring brocante in Amsterdam I found the solution; an old sorter cabinet with sixty-four compartments!

Most of them are already filled with colorful yarns.

In the absence of daylight a quick picture, but I promise a good overview of [united colors of wood & wool stool 2.0] very soon.

The picture of the Cow Parsley bouquet, is published in Jansen Magazine issue 3 as j@nsen tip for a free summer bouquet.

The motto of the Dutch Jansen Magazine is: not rich, but stylish!

In the vase once more free flowers, this time a Valerian branch.

A handmade heart in neon pink.

A real postcard in your mail box makes your day, right?

It's nice to send and receive.

The [crochet heart] postcard is available in white and neon pink. The nostalgic hand carved wave ridges make the card super sweet.

You can order them through email or Etsy or you can buy them at Villa Augustus.

Yesterday was a sunny day for a change.

Therefore we took the opportunity to drink coffee in the front yard.
(and another cup)

In the afternoon we paid a visit to my brother who lives on a houseboat in a beautiful area. Later on we had a glass of wine in the colorful flower garden of our mutual friend Jane, who lives in the same town.

Now it's Monday again, no sun in sight and plenty of things to do.

a vase is a vase is a vase

I'm not only fond of flowers,
I also love vases.
For any kind of bouquet I can seize an appropriate vase.

On the upper jugs post, I received some requests for a front view photo of the collection.

Today mail from Germany;
the Burda Style June issue, including a cute article about the small label [wood & wool stool].

present location: bilbao

These two requests are both freestylers.
I thought it was a beautiful pair together!
(after the photo shoot they were both sent in a different direction)

The left one is a wedding anniversary surprise for Linda.

The right one has present location Bilbao. Yolanda mailed me this morning that her stool has arrived in Bilbao.

Instead of letters anywhere in the house, today I made ​​an alphabetical wall.

The missing letters are making it complete.
