Guess who's Featured Seller on Etsy Today!?

I am very honored to have been chosen as ETSY FEATURED SELLER these two days, it's being such a rollercoaster (in a good way!!!!)
Thank you so much for all the comments on the interview and for the all the support... I am so passionate about this "job" and it feels very good the idea of putting a lot of energies in a project that actually works. I really needed that ;) (like everybody, I suppose, eh eh).

Thanks again, everyone, for taking the time to read the interview and browse through GoGoBerlinette :)

Amazing patterns and some exciting news

Everyone following this blog may already know that I am a big fan of bold colorful patterns... so it's not hard to understand why I instantly fell in love with this amazing cutting board by swedish illustrator Anna Pernilla! It's so great, I am using it everyday both as cutting board or as small tray for my breakfast. Talking about breakfast: I've finally won a bid for two small Gustavsberg plates with my life favorite pattern, Berså by Stig Lindberg!

More about playful patterns: I' have recently discovered the wonderful works of London based illustrator Thereza Rowe, and on her blog I've found out about this great free App called Granimator™. It's a collection of  hundreds of wallpapers by great illustrators and graphic designers, and the fun part is that you can play with each board, creating different combinations by moving individual elements around. I find this one by Tyra von Zweigbergk  particularly genius, it's like playing with wood blocks on your iPad! this is what I came up with:

there are also great patterns on some of the treasures I've found this weekend, soon to be in my GoGoBerlinette shop, like an Arabia of Finland tea set with the Paju pattern, and a GDR soup thermos!

last but not least, today the new issue of FRANKIE magazine is out, and yours truly is featured in it the Homebodies section!! I can't wait to put my hands on a copy, so thrilled!!
 (by the way, a nice customer wrote me an email this morning sayin that she recognized the item she has recently bought from me, it was in one of the pictures of GoGoBerlinette's studio :)

A precious find: Polaroid SX-70

Last Sunday I went thrifting even though I wasn't feeling very well: I (still) have a bad cold plus I was very tired 'cause I've been working 5 days at the resaurant, instead of my usual 3... but the gods of fleamarkets prized me with this gorgeous find:

 a Polaroid SX-70 plus flash, for a super happy price! This is definitely a Keeper!!!

Thanks to the Impossible Project it's still possible to find the Instanf film, and I've found out that here in Berlin there is some nice people over at Sofortbild-shop, where they tested my camera and I bought the precious film to start exeperimenting with my new toy

If you don't know much about this camera have a look at this amazing 10-minute promotional film for the Polaroid SX-70 that Charles and Ray Eames made in the '70s:
