Some photos from the summer for those of you who want to remember warmer times.

We've been reveling in being back in Canada and have had a lovely few days with family. Now it's time for us to visit with friends back in Toronto. The festivities begin with a party this evening... and then we'll probably have a few packed days of pure indulgence.

Last week I finally got to stop by Robber and bought a few items for myself. Merry Christmas to me. I got a beautiful dace dress and a steven alan sweater... and they feel oh so good to wear. I was a little disappointed in seeing these product shots... they both look much better on the rack... and on me!

We have no real plans for the next week... well just a few here and there. We're enjoying being back and unfortunately we've been doing too much enjoying and I've forgotten to take photos with our digital camera. I'll have to wait and post some photos when I get the medium format film developed.

Happy Saturday... and wishing you all happy holidays.


sicky sick sick

I know... I seem to be posting this a lot lately. We arrived back in Canada about four days ago and have been battling illness ever since. Hopefully we'll be able to put a healthy foot forward tomorrow and get out of the house. We're having internet connection difficulties with our computers so I'm posting from my parents... hence no photos. I scanned a bunch of old gems last week though so there are more to come in the near near future!

We did manage to pop into Toronto on Friday to see some friends that are skipping town for the holidays.

Some things that I'm looking forward to doing this week... or maybe after Christmas:

*checking out the beautiful clothing store Robber in Toronto. I've been hearing about it in blog-land and am intrigued.

*going out for some coffee with friends at a few of my favourite Toronto coffee shops like the Common and ella's uncle, and I can't wait to get to Arabesque for some delicious middle eastern food.

*getting our hair cut next week at Barberella on Dundas.

*hmmm.... also been thinking about checking out hen house while we're in town.

Yesterday we went to the Old Mill in Etobicoke for the Sunday brunch buffet with my Aunt and Uncle and all I have to say is that it is decadent. If you haven't had the chance get down there.

Happy Monday... keep your fingers crossed that we'll get healthy soon.



Random medium format photos from 2009 (secret stasi prison berlin, ruegen island, norway, ireland)

It's been busy busy over here and probably will be until at least Thurs... that's when we fly back to Canada for a glorious three weeks.

Today I finally picked up a few rolls of film that I had been saving up to get developed. There are even photos from some of our summer trips.

Here's a lovely advent calendar/blog... a new drawing every day.

Happy Tuesday.


The last couple of days I've been sick sick sick. I did manage however to get some new items in my shops... if you're so inclined take a peek here or here.

I'm at Trendmafia all afternoon today so if you're in Berlin you should pop by and say hello. Other than that we might be going to an opening tonight at Exile... bonus that it's near our place!

Happy Saturday.



Oh what a rainy weekend we had in Berlin. We were at Trendmafia the entire weekend... and will be there again next weekend! If you're in Berlin you should come by to say hi!

The inactivity in the city continues... I've been getting ready for Christmas and thinking about what we're going to need to do before our trip back to Canada. Ok that's not entirely true. Last night we went to see the Ravonettes at Lido... and this coming Thursday we'll be going to Bang Bang Club to see Lightning Dust. I have to tell you I was too tired to go out last night and almost skipped seeing the Ravonettes for the second time (it's crazy because I already had a ticket). I ended up dragging myself out of the house and was so happy when I got there. They really blew me away. What a great show!

I'm off to another Christmas party tonight...

Happy Tuesday.


My mornings.

A morning sky from last week.

A morning view from my u-bahn station.

Just wanted to give you a peek of my early morning routine... I love how everything is so quiet when I leave the house. It's only getting darker outside though.

We received a sweet package from a friend in Canada yesterday. Thanks M. if you're reading!! It makes my day to get little surprises like that. I need to send more stuff out and return the love.

We're also sending good vibes to our friends Veda, Justin and Anders who just moved back to Vancouver. Hope you guys are settling in well! We miss you already.

Happy Thursday.


New goods.

Just put some new goods in my shops. Now I'm off to work on more stuff. We're getting ready for our visit back to Canada... it's coming so fast I can hardly believe it. We only have 16 more days to go!

Take a peek at my shop here or here.

Happy Tuesday.
