- What is a treasure for you is maybe not for some one else. -

Friday evening, I bought those two cactus & two white pots. Early saturday morning, I painted the pots,even inside. I'm so happy to have those two plants, they look so funny ! I like to imagine them singing, one would make"Lula-Lula" & the other one "LoLu-Lulo".
Thursday morning  I found this book Crao - Indianer der Roten Berge, on the market  for only 1 euro ! It was published in 1963. And yesterday afternoon, I bought this book about Yoshitomo Nara I'm looking for since years. It's a book about his exhibition I don't mind, if you forget me, which tooks place in 2001. The cover of the book was a bit destroyed, so the saler reduced the price. Oh, I walked home so happy!

  10. Hello Joahanna. I discovered your blog through Katie at bonjour, ok. I love how people's blogs take me to other new people. In Toronto, we have a small second-hand bookshop in an area called the Junction. Browsing there and returning with a some worn-out books always makes feel just happy. So I totally understand the feeling of having found treasure. And I love a bargain, :)

  11. Je viens de réaliser que tu vis à Berlin, donc si tu as un iPod/iPhone ou iPad, tu sera peut-être intéressée de savoir que le Petit Futé Berlin est gratuit en ce moment.
