“uzum” still waiting to find a home&family…

I was spending time with “uzum” again today and am very sad to say she is still waiting to meet her new family… she is sadly moving from one shelter to another… anyone you know, who could be interested?! anyone?

“uzum” after some game-playing at the park today…

uzum” ne yazik ki halen sahiplendirilemedi… bugun yine kendisini ziyarete gittim… oyuncu&cilveli ve keyifliydi ama pansiyondan pansiyona tasindigi icin artik sersemlemis durumda… birakirken yine mi der gibi boynunu buktu… ben kendisini ziyaret etmeye devam edecegim ama bir umid paylasiyorum… belki akliniza bu tatliyi sahiplenmek isteyebilecek birisi gelir diye…

and more new faces!

loving “projebir” with a passion…

our dear&gorgeous&elegant&tasteful&talented friend zeynep has launched her “projebir” called jewellery collection… and we have been holding our breaths to share this wonderful news with you! we waited till it hit the stores, not to torture you with pics without telling where to find the beauties! there are different themes with different styles belonging to them… so there is something for everyone! I have picked mine the second I saw the impressive collection… and have been wearing it proudly ever since… she has a great variation in styles, so it is highly recommended you check out both her site and the beauties themselves which are in beymen stores now!

picture taken on my first encounter with “projebir” few months ago… taken while drooling…

spent some more time with “uzum” today…

you’ll remember this little girl from our “petfest” post! well,we (by “we”; I mean me!) have been quite obsessed with her ever since… she is around 2 years old (we think), fixed lady… she seems to have been through a lot, was abandoned into the “hasdal” shelter… has very sad eyes… still is the most gentle, sweet&calm dog… gets along very well with cats… if you know anyone that could be interested on meeting her, please let us know and we’ll be uber-happy to make the introduction!

this is her on saturday during “petfest”…

&

cumartesi gunu “petfest”te cekilmis bir fotosuyla…

unfortunately today she had to get some stitches after having cut her ear on the metal fence of the garden where she is staying… but health-wise she is well now (besides having to wear that collar no dog likes!)…

&

bugun kendisini ziyarete gittigimdeyse uzulerek kulagina dikis atilmis oldugunu ogrendim…  bahce citlerinin arasina kulagini sikistirmayi basarinca kulaginin ucunda minik bir yirtik olmus : (  ama su an o yakayi takmak zorunda olmaktan baska sihhi bir sikintisi yok diyebiliriz…

after a long combing session in a nice shadow in the garden, she leaned her head (let’s say her collar) on my feet to take a nap… told you she was the sweetest… she is a true snuggler…

&

bahcenin golge bir kosesinde uzun bir taranma seansi sonrasi basini, daha dogrusu yakasini, ayaklarima yaslayip sekerleme yapmaya karar verdiginde… tek derdi sokulmak… sevilmek… tam bir yufka…

“petfest” sonrasi paylastigim gorsellerden “uzum”u taniyacaginizi dusunuyorum : ) kendisi asagi yukari 2 yasinda, kisirlastirilmis, sahane bir terrier kirmasi… biraz hirpalanmis ve uzulmus halde “hasdal” barinaginda bulunmus ne yazik ki… mahsun bakisli ama muthis kibar, sakin, hali&tavri yumusacik bir kiz o… benim aklimdan cikmiyor dolayisiyla paylasmadan edemedim… ona, onun kiymetini bilecek bir ev araniyor acilen… (bu arada kedilerle arasi gayet iyi, belirtmeden gecmeyelim!) barinakta, buyuk kopeklerin arasinda barinamadigi icin su an gecici olarak bir pansiyonda bekliyor… bugun kendisini ziyaretimden haberlerde yukarida iste…

welcoming “osman” into our world!

with a week of delay we wanted to welcome “osman” into our world! my dear friend ceyda just gave birth to her sweet baby-boy last week! they are living in London, so unfortunately I haven’t yet met him in person, but hopefully that’ll happen soon as well! till then; we wanted to say hi to him from our rumisu pages… and send the new family big&big kisses…

congratulations to ceyda&bahadir! and the most gentle kisses to “osman”…

osman&ceyda&bahadir accompanied by some moody london weather we hear… by deniz…

&

bir hafta rotarla da olsa, tatlilar tatlisi “ceyda”nin taptaze oglunun dogumunu kutlamak istedik rumisu olarak! londra’da olmasalar kucuk osman’i affetmez, simdiden yogurmus olurduk tabii ama kendisi mesafeden yirtti! simdilik! kendisiyle tanismayi dort gozle bekliyor, baba bahadir ve anne ceyda’yi opuyoruz….

dunya nufusuna bir yakisikli daha kattiklari icinde ayrica tesekkur ediyoruz onlara! (hos, biraz kiza da ihtiyac olacak sanki bu yeni jenerasyonda ama etrafimizdaki tum taze bebisler simdilik erkek dogmakta israrli gibi?!)

a special present from my sis!

after my first very special hand-crocheted little money bag… my sister found me another one, just as surprising with its contemporary design! I am loving it! thank you pinaaaaarrrr! and of course this means that it is officially the beginning of a collection! there must be more of these somewhere to be discovered!

exciting

: )

and wish that I could meet the makers too! they must be a cool bunch!

adoring the awkward-looking monsters and that they are on this antique piece! and pinar’s illustration of them…

&

bu geometrik canavarlara, onlari bu eski keseye islemis olan ellere (kim bilir nerde&ne zaman) ve pinar’in suluboya versiyonlarina saygi durusu!

&

gecen yaz heyecan icinde kesfettigim modern&esprili ilk para kesemden sonra ablam bana bir ikinci dehset versiyon bulmus! koleksiyon baslamis bulunmakta! artik durum resmiyete binmistir! bir ikincisi bulunduguna gore bunlardan kesfedilmeye hazir daha baskalari olmali!

heyecan dorukta!

best kind of weekend…

starting with petfest and the wonderful dogs we met there…  following with emir’s birthday… we had a great weekend we had to share… hope you had a great one too… wishing you now a good new week…

we decorated the stand of hasdal dog-shelter a little…

hasdal barinaginin standini kendimizce hizlica susledik…

she is a one year old abandoned in hasdal… sad eyes&wonderful soul… can not stop thinking about her…

hasdal barinagina terk edilmis 1 yasindaki mahsun&kibar kiz… aklimdan cikmiyor bir an icin bile…

6 week old shar-pei puppies which were abandoned there with their mother (while still pregnant)…they are incredible as you can see…

anneleri daha hamileyken hasdal’a terk edilmis olan shar-pei kardesler 6 haftalik… ruya gibiler…

only another one of divine puppies from petfest waiting to find a family…

yine petfest’te yeni ailesini bulmak icin orda olanlardan  biri…

this one is waiting to be adopted too…

 sahiplenilmeyi bekleyen bir yumuk daha…

“emiringo” turned 1! and check out his cupcakes! I sure did : )

“emiringo”nun 1. yasini kutladik ciglik cigliga… ve tabii ben kutlama cupcake’lerini affetmedim!

checking out his gifts…

hediyeler yakindan incelenirken…

: )

and yes the theme of the day was “mickey”!

ve evet gunun maskotu “mickey” idi…

&

petfest’te kopeklerle basliyan haftasonu, “emiringo”nun dogumgunuyle son buldu… kopekler&en sevdigimiz 12 aylik! ve arkadaslarimizla keyif… daha ne isteseydik?! (ben aslinda iki numarali gorseldeki ufakligi istiyorum birde cok ama…)

: )

iyi haftalar…

persisting..retrying…

we are re-trying our luck with toy design …hopefully this time the finished product will not look like an “adult” toy….

daha buyuk boyutlarda oyuncak yapma denemelerimiz devam etmekte…

umariz ikinci denememizde elde ettigimiz sonuc yine “yetiskinler” icin yapilmis bir takim oyuncaklarla karistirilmaz!

happy “giving-birth” day :)

as you now know today rumisu is celebrating the first anniversary of emiringo’s arrival…

so of course we have to first of all celebrate the super mama pamiringo :)

we invited these funky little ones to organize and spice up the party…

we hope it will be a big and happy one and will go on forever and forever ….

party spice-uppers by pinar yegin

…who cannot wait to get going……

bildiginiz uzere bugun rumisu emiringo’nun aramiza katilisinin 1. yildonumunu kutluyor…

tabii ki bu sebeple super-anne pamiringo’yu da unutmuyoruz :)

kendisi icin bu parti delisi yaratiklari davet ettik dunyamiza… gelip partimizi senlendirmeleri icin…

rumisu olarak bu sevimli ailenin partisinin ayni coskuyla sonsuza dek devam etmesini diliyoruz :)

“emiringo” is turning 1 todaayyyy!!!!!!

yes, you heard it right! “emir” is officially 1 today! and of course it is party-time!!!

celebrating mama and daddy orhun too naturally! thanking them for bringing that little divine-smelling&giggly&at the same time, surprisingly very serious looking “bundle of all good things” creature into our lives…

below you will witness his passion for his books… apparently he isn’t happy unless he has at least this many books in his bed at night and when he wakes up!

well! we could say he does eat them “in a way”…and so this is going to be one of his new additions to his book collection (new pijama party member!), since I thought it was very fitting, almost written and illustrated for him in fact! “the incredible book eating boy” it is called! by “oliver jeffers”… describing I believe our one&only emir!

&

oliver jeffers’in “the incredible book eating boy” kitabi sanki “emir”e yazilmis&cizilmis… dolayisiyla yatak arkadaslari ekibine yeni uye olmak uzere kitabimiz ve arkadaslari (surprizin tamamini burda, hemen aciklayamayiz tabii!) yola cikti bile!

simdi dunyanin en mis kokulu 1′ligini opmeye, koklamaya, kutlamaya, havalara atip tutmaya dogru yola cikiyoruz biz!

bu keyif yumagini aramiza katan anne ve baba orhun’u da ayrica kutlamayida unutmuyoruz… insanlik adina…

: )

bugun resmen emiringo 1!!!!! nice&nice mutlu, saglikli, heyecanli, coskulu, guzel surprizlerle dolu yillara!!!! vuhuuuuuu!!!!!!!!!

misadventures in toy design

for a long time now, we are being urged to design and produce toys based on our beloved little creatures and amigurumi,   especially by the bright and lovely new mommies that surround us…

so with this encouragement and motivation, we decided to change scale and produce some new prototypes that could be replicated by the CATOM ladies…

well it turns out, not everything that looks cute in 2D or in a small scale looks cute when blown up to a bigger size!

our friends have been asking if our new ‘toy’ is for “adults”?  To clarify: no that was not the intention and you all have a very dirty mind indeed!

rumisu toy and amigurumi designuzun bir suredir, arkadaslarimiz, ozellikle de taze anne kategorisindeki arkadaslarimiz tarafindan, oyuncak konusuna yonelmeye tesvik ediliyoruz…

nihayet harekete gecip mini minnaciklarimizin boyutlarini buyutup, urettirmek uzere bir adim attik…

gel gor ki, iki boyutta ve kucukken sirin gozuken hersey buyudugunde ayni efekti yaratmiyormus…

yeni “urunumuzle” tanisan herkes “oyuncak” sektorunun hangi bolumune girmek istedigimizi sorar oldu simdi…

ne diyelim kardesim, sizin akliniz “masum” degil galiba…

biz burada ‘kalbi hep cocuk kalanlar’ icin calismaya devam ediyoruz.

illustrations & amigurumi creatures by pinar yegin…

we heard that…

you had a very successful operation and we are overjoyed to hear that…

…we want to come visit you and give you a big&bigger hugs…

…and smother you with endless love asap…

and by “we”, we of course mean all of us, including irmik :) and the new healing creatures who were born to accompany you!

creatures of comfort for azracreatures of comfort&healing by rumisu bird pinar…

cok basarili bir operasyon gecirdigini duyduk ve cok sevindik,

simdi seni ziyaretine gelip, sana sarilabilmek, sevgiye bogabilmek icin bekliyoruz…

tabii ki bizden kastimiz, hepimiz, yeni miniler ve irmik de dahil …

mini “iyilesme” yaratiklari pinar’dan, azra’ya…

tomorrow will be a better day…

today our thoughts and hearts are with our sweet&sweet “Azra” and her beautiful family, who are having a rough day… those unpleasant black fuzzies might be coming down today, but tomorrow will be a much better &brighter day… we can’t wait to come see you and tell you that in person! get well soon Azra!

we love you…

maybe today…

&

bugun boyle karanlik gecse de…

surely tomorrow…

&

yarin ne olacagi asikar…

we love you… and love wins over at any day…

&

seni cok seviyoruz, cok…

semsiyeni en yakin zamanda firlatabilmen dileklerimizle…

&&&

bugun aklimiz biricik “Azra”mizda! Azra’mizla ve onun guzel ailesiyle…

yarin gelip seni gormeyi dort gozle bekliyor, sevgiye bogmak icin sabirsizlaniyoruz : )

 cok gecmis olsun Azra….

adopted few of pinar’s babies for a quick “bodrum” getaway…

well, maybe only two of them this time… sir hugsalot and ms.guerlain came along with me and emir… and only for two days unfortunately… but we promise the whole family, that there will be no favoring and that the rest of the family; all the cousins&brothers&sisters&uncles&aunts will be vacationing soon as well… and since I adopted them for the weekend and they weren’t used to being away from pinar (their mama!) they were very shy at first and insisted on hiding in my pocket… took me a while to gain their trust… but of course I knew just what to do!

I tricked them with this breakfast into coming out of my pocket and playing… that’s how you steal hearts in my book! : )

&

pek ozel “yunuslar” firininin dere otlu&peynirli pogacasi ve cay esliginde kandirilarak cebimden cikariliverdi bu ikili… kalbe giden yol diyeyim, uzatmayayim!! : )

then we traveled a bit to get to the beach… and let’s say it took sir hugsalot a bit longer to come out of my bag… still a bit shy…

&

deniz kiyisina yapilan kisa yolculuk sonrasi cantamdan cikip, etrafi incelemek konusunda ms guerlain daha bir heyecanli&daha bir cesur davrandi diyelim…

right when our couple decided they were warming up to the sea-side, a local showed up investigating our situation…

&

tam bir hatira fotosu aliyordum ki mekana alismakta olan ikiliden… kareye girip bizimkilerle tanismak isteyen mekanin yerlilerinden biri beliriverdi fonda!she got closer&closer trying to understand which planet we came from…it seemed as though she thought we were an odd group at first!

&

grubumuzu bir hayli siradisi bulmus olsa gerek ki, oldukca dikkatle&oldukca yakindan incelendik uzun bir sure!

and when it was decided we were safe&sweet-natured creatures, the rest of the group showed up to start the party!

&

inceleme&arastirma sonucunda bariscil ve arkadas-yanlisi oldugumuza kanaat getirilince, sahilin tum ekibi tarafindan onurlandirildik ve partimiz resmi olarak basladi!

after all the traveling&excitement&making new friends, of course we had to have a great lunch! and don’t you be worrying about sir hugsalot, he might not to be seen in the frame but he sure had his share of sausage&potato salad! I can assure you Pinar, that they both love me now!

&

tum yolculuk&yeni mekana ve bana alisma turlari&yeni tuylu arkadaslarla kaynasma fasillari sonrasi tabii ki bizi ekipce guzel bir ogle yemegi pakladi… Pinar, sana temin ederim; ms. guerlain ve sir hugsalot tarafimdan resmi olarak kazanilmislardir…

(ozellikle fotograflamayi ne yazik ki unuttugum “bitez dondurmasi” seansimizdan sonra!)

&&&

bu seferlik sadece kisa iki gunlugune ve yanlizca kocaman ailenin iki uyesi; “ms guerlain” ve sir “hugsalot” u yanima alabilmis olsam da, geri kalan aile ferdlerine onlari da pek yakinda gezdirecegime soz veriyorum! yengeler&dayilar&halalar&kayincolar duyduk duymadik demeyin! herkesin sirasi gelecek!

analari Pinar’dan ayirdim onlari! maksat iyilik de olmus olsa, en basta pek bir yadirgandim tabii… cebimden, cantamdan cikmak istemediler pek… guvenlerini&sevgilerini kazanmanin yolunu buldum ama… dunyanin en guzel yontemi ile; “nasil olsa analarina&teyzelerine benzemislerdir” diyerek yemekten girdim olaya! gerisi hikaye…

sonuc; basari!
