The Beginning of Spring

We are happy to present the beginning of spring.

This animated GIF is made with pictures taken form the kitchen window.

 Between Ostbahnhof and Jannowitzbrücke.

 In front of our living-rooms window we have an amazing pink tree and we got an Orchid to mach the nice view of the yard.

Living Room Table

I had been thinking for months to make a coffee table with old wood but I had not found the material. As soon as I saw the wood, renovating the horrible table I used to have became top priority. 

Here are some things we have on it.
*Wooden puzzles.                *80's atlas and 1960's" Gould's Tropical Birds" image book.
*Mexican Sun God mask.          *Mexican alebrije, Pegasus carved out of wood.

We had an amazing weather this weekend. On Saturday we had a party with some neighbors and we moved to another around the corner after a while.

The Basement

Well this last week we had our basement door "fixed".The man fixing the door was so professional that he even asked me for a drill. I can only imagine how he fixed it without tools.
Here is a small video of how it looks pass the door.

As you can see the place has place for 35 persons in case of emergency.

Kitchen's lamp

The first thing we have changed in the kitchen is the lampshade covering the main light. It used to be a basket, witch I personally like but it did block to much light.

For this project we used :              *Brass rings                        *Wood stick curtain 
                                   *Translucent paper                        *String

A layout of the rings before building

The different textures filter the light and create a warm and inviting feeling in the kitchen. I'm very happy with how it turned out.
