Don’t know what to do with yourself now that the sun has finally hit Berlin? This Saturday, check out REFOUND Market, “where vintage and design meet”. The indoor-outdoor market is an offshoot of REFOUND, an exhibition that combines contemporary design pieces with antique furniture, and will feature works by 15 local designers together along with carefully selected vintage pieces. Shoppers can browse chic clothes and furnishings while enjoying a coffee, home-made pies and cupcakes in the sun. See you down there!
When? Saturday 28th April from 12:00 till 19:00 Where? Agora Collective Mittelweg 50 Neukölln Berlin 12053
Not content with having two lovely cats here in Berlin, we decided to keep things interesting and throw a new puppy into the mix! Maybe we’re mental, but after moving to another country, where we didn’t know anyone or even speak the language, we thought that looking after a puppy would be <ahem> a walk in the park. We didn’t count on the sleepless nights and constant playing, walking and training that make this pretty much a full time job. But when we look into those big bug eyes our hearts melt, and it’s all worth it.
This wasn’t an easy decision (especially with two cats!) and we only found Olive after six months of searching for a breeder who cared as much about their animals as we did. We first found Chien Royal, whose photos alone are worth checking out even if you don’t feel you can commit to the real thing. Unfortunately they didn’t have any pups left so they recommended Martina at Kleine Franzosen, whose dam had just had a litter. We waited ten weeks until Olive was ready to leave her mum, but thankfully Martina kept me up to speed daily with how she was getting on and posted lots of photos on her Facebook page so I didn’t miss out on her growing up. I really can’t thank her enough for all her help and advice – she’s clearly committed to breeding happy, healthy bullies, and making sure they go to the right homes.
Olive is now settling in really well (she can “sit” already!) and the cats even are adjusting to their new sister . If you fancy keeping up to date with Olive’s adventures, then you can check out her very own Tumblr here.
