I made another holiday bag. Our son takes his fiance to Berlin, which he explored and fell in love with two years ago by himself. Now he wants to let her too feel the pulse of this dramatic city, show her around, and be with her on an adventure of the heart - ten days on a row of pleasure.

The city on the river Spree, which was divided by a wall for several decades, is today not only the political seat of the German government, it has also one of the most important cultural scenes in Germany. Theater, music, art and history are provided in endless museums, galleries and institutions. Nature is lovely in Berlin with plenty of parks and lakes. Food is delicious and international as well as local, the humor of the people known, and the markets a joy to visit.

So my bag for my soon to be daughter-in-law is vivid and lively, like a wonderful carefree summer day in this never sleeping metropolis.

Front and back. All cotton. Zippered pocket outside, Velcro closed pocket inside on the lining, key swivel, magnet closure, adjustable strap, leather and feather adornment. The lovely red doily I found last week at the flea market in downtown Haifa, it adds a lot of pizzazz.
