the lazy "photographer"

See? lately I've been using my phone more than my real camera... discovered instagram ...and I am already addicted to it  like a 16 year old kid... with that app it's so easy  to take decent pictures that I almost feel guilty :) (by the way I am @superninon also over there if you want to have a look and join)

1st picture: there you go, some of the cutest fleamarkets finds  of today!!! aren't they marvellous? and there will be some more marvels over at  Go Go Berlinette next week!
2nd: it's Misako Mimoko's calendar and a Cheburashka postcard (a gift from my boyfriend)
3rd: taken just before getting to the fleamarket in Schoeneberg, it was freezing!
4th: in pure Wedding style: "no piss" signs made by children who have to "share" the park with some drunk people... I may have to go back to take more pictures of those little painted faces, who were supposed to look really disgusted... priceless!
5th: ...when you are at home alone you are not always in the mood for cooking... I love those Syrup Waffeln for "supper"!
last: a typical east berlin beehive building. gee, those floors look like they are max 1,50 m high... I bet they have tons of light, tough!

oh, and yesterday evening I've discovered one of the best movies I've been seing lately:

that's all for now, enjoy the resto of the weekend
and counting -4 days for  the copilot to come home!

a few things that make me go "...WOW!"

 Pablo Picasso - "Figure" 1935
 go have a look at this fabulous post,  with a lot of images from the catalog of the exhibition
"Toys of the Avant-Garde" at the Museo Picasso Malaga. (via)

so here are a few things that I've discovered during this weekend! I hope it was a good one for you! 
I enjoyed the company of Coki and his boyfriend on Friday evening, chatting for hours at the 7000 bar in Kreuzberg, and on Saturday I went to a ubercrowded Das Hotel night...
I am currently working on a few custom orders, but I will be rolling up my sleeves for a bunch of brand new Les Monstris in a couple of weeks, for a long time dued shop update ;)
 stay tuned!

coral red days

here are a few pictures of the new curtains I've made yesterday for our living room.. I instantly fell in love with that coral red checkered fabric! 

I am being at home alone for the next couple of weeks, my boy is on tour in the uk (ah-ehm, I hope he'll like the new curtains when he'll get back home... ;)
I am feeling a bit clumsy and weird today, woken up at dawn by a neighbor that was screaming like crazy at her little kid, then I had a terrible nightmare where my street and house got bombed for some reason, and I had lost my mermory and there were strangers inside my apartment... baaaad vibes...

anyway, to cheer me up tonigt I will cook myself a nice meal and then whatch many episodes of The It Crowd, a new (to me) british comedy serie that crackes me up A LOT, discovered thanks to zigsma (check out her blog!). Last night I watched "Away we go" by Sam Mendes, written by Dave Eggers and his wife Vendela Vida, and enjoyed every single minute of it!

Uh, one of our favourite bloggers just moved to Berlin! check out her beatiful pictures of the city, that lately is being very warm, almost all the snow/ice is gone! there is already a subtle spring feeling, unbelievable!

Yesterday I started my first group on Flickr, it is called "Pure White PORZELLAN Vases", please have a look and join it if you also are a fan of this beautiful vintage objects!
By the way, there are a few new things over at Go Go Berlinette, go check them out!!

new beginnings (part II)

so, as promised, here are a few pictures of freshly adjusted studio, getting fuller and messier everyday... before my "computer HQ" was in the living room, now partially used by my boyfriend as music studio. Today I've also made these new yellow and white curtains, they are much brighter that the ones I had previously,  and this is a welcome PLUS during the winter days! Yesterday I had to set up  a new corner for taking the pictures for  the vintage shop with artificial light. Now it's set on the left side of my desk, just a wide stripe of brown paper taped to the wall with an halogen ikea-ugly lamp, here you can see the results of the pictures that I re-took, pretty impressive with such poor material, uh?

  here are a few treats/books that I got myself for xmas :)

and, last but not least, today it's my grandma's 84th birthday! she is such a joker and with the age she is enjoying even more making us all laugh with her rough manners :)
here we are together on last xmas dinner:
Happy Birthday Nonna Silvia!

new beginnings (part I)

After a couple of weeks away from the computer I am slowly catching up with all the internet things, today I've been listing some new vases on Go Go Berlinette, I am in loooove with the first one! and, as you can see, I have some new string shelves in my studio, great for displaying and taking pictures of my vintage objects for the shop that are starting to take  up quite a lot of space!
I had to move around some furniture around the house, tomorrow I will take some pictures of the new adjustments and post some pictures!

I hope you had a very very good time during the holidays, I did! 
I will be back in the next days with other news :)
