i love the lighting made of vintage looking umbrellas of this lovely Paraplü shop, a shop dedicated to kids (shoes, clothes and gifts). an idea to steal! today was a great day strolling around and having a snack at Sigismondo yum!

cuckoo clock

so here is my beautiful cuckoo clock from former ussr i found on a fleemarket. it is made of brown bakelite with pine cones relief pattern and plain wood. i repaired it and it works fine now. it sounds really loud because of the huge sound case on the back, which is ok because the clock is in my studio. the only thing is that it doesn't have a cuckoo yet. i'm searching for one :)

vintage bar Kohlen Quelle

this is one of the first place where we went when we arrived in Berlin and we are still going there regularly, because we love the place, the people and the food. it is named the Kohlen Quelle. it is furnished with sofas, chairs, lighting and tables of the former GDR. i especially love the yellow and purple square mural lamps!

week end findings

i saw quite a lot of amazing objects, that i actually didn't buy: professional scales, porcelain bambi and cat figures, teddy bears, cups with a thunder handle.
what i did buy is vintage hangers covered with plastic typical from Berlin, and beautiful German ceramic wall clocks, a set of stoneware from the netherlands. soon in the shop!

con calma

finally. here is a sunday like i like them! with coffee, blue sky, sun and con calma.
con calma is a lovely coffee, italian pastries and frozen yoghurt place at arnimplatz in prenzlauer berg. not only they serve [real] coffee with a warm italian accent, but the decor is all vintage with Berlin typical kidney bean tables, chairs and lighting.
