I've had loads of photos on my camera from the fall that I didn't get around to posting here. In September friends of ours from Toronto, The Wardens, had a show at... Gallery in Mitte that I wanted to share with you. Both of these women, Heather and Naomi, make beautiful work that doesn't cease to amaze and inspire me, so keep your eye out for them.

Happy Tuesday.


It has been very grey and rainy in Berlin the last few days. It's making me think of the wonderful fall weather we had over the past few months. Here are some photos from a few of our fall days when I found myself with a little time on my hands, and spent some of it in various cafes around the city.

Happy Thursday. I hope the sun is shining where you are.


Little bits of colour are creeping back into our lives here. I'm looking forward to all the changes to come in 2013. I love the clean slate that the new year brings.

The past year has been a really great year of change and transition and we're looking forward to much more transitioning and settling to come. Some of our wonderful friends in Berlin will be moving on and leaving the city in the coming months. We're sad to see you go, but we're excited to keep in touch and spend time with you all in your new homes. We've been really lucky to have such a great, supportive network of friends here... a make shift family creating a home away from home for us.

I wish you all a great start to the new year and hope that you are all lucky enough, like we are, to be living your lives as you wish... doing things that simply make you happy.

Happy Tuesday and Happy New Year!

Ps. I'm reading a wonderful book right now; The Craftsman by Richard Sennett.  A recommendation for makers of all things concrete and abstract.
