book for the weekend 4 + something special ;-)

Today book of Geert De Kockere and Sabien Clement Amourons-nous, publihed in 2003 by one of the greatest french publishing house Éditions du Rouergue.
I love this book, the subtle way it's drawing, the way the story is telling, the colours and of course the subject!

Zapraszam wszystkich którzy mają ochotę (i możliwość) spotkać się ze mną na Piknik Literacki z okazji DNIA DZIECKA, w niedzielę 30 maja. Będę prowadzić razem z Ewą Solarz, autorką książki DESIGN warsztaty dla dzieci - podwójne (już sie boję ;-) najpierw będzie trochę o DESIGNIE, a póżniej że, nie trzeba być takim jak wszyscy a odmienność jest piękna.
Program Pikniku znajdziecie tu na stronie wydawnictwa Dwie Siostry, które jest współorganizatorem Pikniku
Zapraszam bardzo, bardzo!!!!

Today we go to the Netherlands! Why? Because Ingrid Jansen, the woman who created WOOD & WOOL STOOL lives there with her husband Henk, daughter Pippa and son Minne. I'm sure that many of you know stools made by Ingrid but now we can check how house of this incredible talented person looks like. The house is beautiful, magical, fresh...  Every single thing looks special: lamp made of food tins, wallpaper above daughter's bed, hangers on the wooden wall and of course her amazing wool's crocheted stools. 
Looking at pics from Ingrid's home make me happy, I can't stop doing it ;-)
You know I'm not good in English but today I'd like to show you how I'm impressed by Ingrid and her art. You must see the gallery of her, check her website, where you can see many beautiful creations of her hands and can buy some of them. I'm also visiting her blog so often.
