out of the jar

February at work.

Thursday at Villa Augustus is my weekly flowerday.
I made some seasonal Augustus pictures this afternoon. From now on I will bring my camera more often to work, to shoot the daily life and new dishes for the Villa Augustus facebook page.

Augustus with all its colors and inspiration every single day.
Chefs preparing pumpkin ravioli for the new menu,
all the brand new shiny glass jars (we received lots of new stuff in the market shop)
and of course a shot of the fresh flowers in the vase d'avril with colorful marigolds and tulips!

wood & wooly cardigan

Winter crochet on repeat.

This warm white wooly winter cardigan is very cozy and comfy! Good thing is, you can make one yourself.

You can find the pattern in my Etsy shop (with PDF file in English and Dutch edition)

The pattern is not difficult at all and winter isn't over yet...

This weekend my niece Afra from London stayed with us with her boyfriend Tet. They are both architects and they are both fans of Rotterdam.

After breakfast we left for a visit to Rotterdam, despite the drizzly weather, we had a lovely day and enjoyed the city round.

old school

A wonderful old school building in my hometown is being transformed into apartments.

The sad thing is, they will be building way too many apartments, which ruines the whole atmosphere.

Last Saturday we were daydreaming about 'our new residence' in for example two of those huge and high classrooms, imagine the possibilities...

...the kitchen say in the middle of the room,
oh all that space and gigantic high ceilings,
bedrooms and bathroom in the room next door...
etcetera

We took pictures of the beautiful old details, had fun and fantasized a little bit.
