♥ | The Sarah

Psynopsis Sarah Lund Sweater Berlin Variation
Just because the world's going to end in 3 days doesn't mean I've given up on Christmas wishes… Here some more or less realistic ones…

#1 The Sarah Lund sweater. The fact that my favourite Danish detective has left for good (leaving me with major tough-single-mother-stubborn-cop-f-the-world heroine deprivation) makes me want a sweater I can 'feel at home with myself' even more. The original is quite pricey, but I've seen many a chic and individual variation of the Sarah sweater on women in Berlin... Which is much cooler anyway. (I mean, a whole website named 'The Killing merchandise' is so not Sarah Lund, is it?!) Or, even better, a vintage or self-knitted (by a friend, no time for knitting when you're chasing murderers) one... Now, that would be perfect. ♥ ♥ ♥

Psynopsis House Entrance Gallery Wien Lukatsch Berlin
The other day I visited the gallery/bookshop Wien Lukatsch – which for 25 years has been a a driving force in finding and mentoring exciting artists and offering a great selection of art and artists' books. Barbara Lukatsch was incredibly kind to tell me more about their background – which you can find in a little article I wrote for the Cee Cee newsletter* (and naturally on their own website). The place is nicely tucked away in a vast 3rd floor flat - and just have a look at the rooms... The rooooms! 400 square meters** of whiteness… Justcannotgetenough of these wide, white Berlin spaces… ♥ ♥ ♥

*I really don’t know how I would have found my way around as a (alas returning) newbie to this city. The website, run by the inexhaustible Nina and Sven, is my absolute go-to for everything Berlin.
** Oui oui oui, that's over than 4300 square feet.

Berlin | From Russia with Love

Psynopsis Berlin December Ikea Parking

Psynopsis Mexican Coat in Snow
I'd forgotten how cold Berlin gets... friggin -12°C/10°F. The gate to Russia, that's what we are here. The world looks quite beautiful though - all white, blue and hazy. I've resorted to taking photos out of the car and from my new favourite hang-out: Ikea's cafeteria, while chewing Swedish almond tart before starting out for another search of what could be the least painful, most affordable kitchen. Every time we leave the place without buying anything I give myself a mental clap on the shoulder and throw a Euro into the 'have more cake' tin… which ideally would stretch to buying a new coat – but it doesn't, so I had to use the old sofa blanket… I quite liked my creation, but Jurgen and Sarah wouldn't stop calling me 'a homeless Mexican grannie' – so I sulked in the garden. ♥ ♥ ♥
