“purple” is a tricky one…

yes! it is a tricky color, with which I still have a love&hate relationship personally! but it is one of pinar’s favorites, so we couldn’t leave it out!

here it is;

purple as a plum… purple as a bruise… purple as welch’s soda and purple as blueberries (still wonder why they are called blue… at all?!)

accompanied by “green” and “yellow” above…

almost looking edible…

&

neredeyse yenebilir kivamda eski bir kenar oyasi…

&

“mor” ile benim sahsi iliskim biraz cetrefilli… bir gun iyiyiz, bir gun kotu… ablam pinar ise bu konuda cok daha tutkulu… yillarin sadik mor-severlerinden kendisi… dolayisiyla bu seri morsuz olmazdi, olmadi…

karadut & murdum & menekse…

: )

piece & peace of “blue”…

blue as can be… we aren’t! we are in fact very peaceful with all this blue around…

blue as those tiny tropical frogs… blue as wild waves… blue as the sky…

all the sweet blues together… behaving very marine next to their inseparable whites….

bulut&huzur&dalga&tavada balik ilk aklimiza gelenler… bir de o kucuk, minicik, tropikal kurbagalar…

maviyi kim sevmez?!

and then comes “red”…

red as tomato… red as a lady-bug… red as poppies…

red as love and maybe even red as blood…

and a little of pink&cream into the mix to smooth things out…

this beaded flower puff is a favorite of mine…

&

salca, ask, kan, tutku veyahut gelincik kirmizisi…

aralara da nispeten yumusak bir giris yapma hevesi ile azicik kemik, birazcik pembe…

and when we say “color”; let’s start with green!

green as a frog… green as a pea… green as a nicely cut jade… (why not by the way?!)

and yeah; maybe a little bit of blue somewhere in there to keep “green” company…

antique beaded oya as trim…

&

boncukla elde islenmis eski igne oyasi, kenar susu olarak…

&

cekirge yesili & bezelye yesili & zumrut yesili…

ve yanina “yesil”e arkadaslik etmesi icin belki biraz da mavi….

have a great week…

of course a colorful one too!

and soon we’ll tell you what we are doing with these!!!

civil bir hafta dileriz…

bunlarla ne isler karistirdigimiziysa cok yakinda paylasmak uzere…

our now “official”collection…

yes! it is official! since I just got the third piece of it as a (again as a great surprise) gift from my sister, our “handmade, antique money bag collection with only funny&funky creatures on them” is on!!!! while pinar was “oya” hunting in the Aegean region, she discovered this near “Aydin”! and I found it in her notebook, before she actually could give it to me herself! ha haa!!!! loving these weird men figurines and my sister, who keeps finding them for me and rumisu!!!

you’ll remember the first! and the second! well; now I know there will be more of these alien-like dudes around… we are officially on the look-out!

so; please note, if you see any!

  the little watercolor men by pinar yegin, inspired by collection piece #3 and “number three” itself…

&

koleksiyonun 3. parcasi ve ilham kaynagi olduklari pinar’in suluboya adamciklari…

“the freaky little red men with their green belly buttons” up close…

&

“yesil gobek delikli kucuk kirmizi adamlar” yakindan…

“irmik”; the most eager model for all the shootings we do around here!

&

foto cekimlerimizin basrolunde olmazsa olmazi; “irmik”…

&

rumisu’nun “espri anlayisli & komik & garip adam figurlu, antik para kesesi koleksiyonu” durumu artik resmilesebilir! pinar Aydin civarlarindaki son “oya” avindan bu deli minik keseyle dondu! (hatta aslinda cok “denizsel” bir hareketle o bana hediyemi veremeden, defterinin arasindan ben buluverdim bu yeni ciciyi!) … ilkini buldugumuzda bayilmanin yanisira, hayretler icinde kalmistik figurlerin modernligine ve muzurluguna… ikincisini bulabilecegimiz aklimiza bile gelmemisti… buldugumuzda da merakimiz artmisti dogal olarak… artik bu ucuncuden sonra biliyoruz ki bu is rumisu’nun resmi takibi altina alinmistir!!! “kim, neden bu garipleri isledi bu keselere acaba” diye meraka devam… “gulyabanimsi” bu adam&kadin&yaratik’lardan aramaya devam… buldukca paylasmayaysa tabii ki devam…

going through idil’s sketchbook…

lots of doodle time&brainstorming and many silly&sweet characters she creates… and them hanging out in their own worlds… right before they come alive! I was going through the pages of my dear friend; idil ar‘s latest sketchbook… she animates… but of course it all starts as you see below! then the whole complex process begins, which I find incredibly amazing (not “just” amazing! please!)… you can find some of her short films at her site… “istanbul” is a favorite of mine : )

idil ar’ in sayfalarindan bazilari bazilari…

&

harikulade animasyonlariyla kendi dunyasini yaratan eski dostum idil’in kucuk kahramanlarinin dogdugu, dunyaya geldigi, herseyin basladigi sayfalarindan bir kismini o calisirkene bir fotograflayiverdim… bu kucuk serseri kahramanlar renklenip, hareketlenince neye benziyor dunyalari diyorsaniz eger, sitesini hararetletavsiye ederim…  favorilerimden biri olan “istanbul” u ozellikle tavsiye ediyorum!

: )

i love birthdays :)

wanted to share another one of the new lovelies that joined my needle point lace collection over my birthday…

this little silk “coin” purse was made by Nigar Hanim, a wonderful person and artist I had the chance of meeting recently…

the little purple flowers are recycled from a very old thorn oya…

I think I ‘ll be framing this beauty to be able to enjoy it everyday…

&

cok yakinda detaylari paylasilacak bir Amerika ziyareti icin havalanma hazirliklari icindeyken…

we told you!

we told you that love was in the air! and here is the proof… all kinds of love pumps functioning all around! with no boundaries at all;

you’ll remember “panter” the newest member of the vineyard… back then she didn’t have a name yet, but after seeing how she handled herself with the two german shepherds we got there only within a few weeks we decided that she earned that name! you’ll sure remember “shiraz“! well, let’s say that it took them very little time to grow on one and other…

“biber” is also in the mix but not as in love let’s say…

“panter” sleeping all snuggled in my bag…

“shiraz”&”panter” are inseparable now…

&

bagin en son uyesi “panter“i hatirliycaksiniz! son paylastigimizda bir ismi yoktu ama avuc ici boyutlariyla iki kurdu iki haftada yola getirdigi icin kendisine bu ismi yakistirdik…

artik kendisi ve “shiraz” ayrilmaz bir ikili oldular bile… “biber” dislanmadi tabii ama bu yeni ekibin bir parcasi olmaya henuz

cok hevesli gorunmuyor yine de…

smile!

have a lovely weekend !“stuff we found by the beach” – pinar yegin

super bir haftasonu diliyoruz sizlere!

love is in the air…

love pump working hard…

ask pompasi is basinda…

arranged marriage…

and here is the freshly united couple…

don’t ask where they came from… they just did! we don’t support that necessarily but sure are hoping that they will actually grow on one and other…

threaded sweetness…

unexpected sweetness we came across, while going through the collection of Gokcen Bey again… hand-stitched with metal thread… so contemporary looking yet at least 50 years old… we love it!

it is the donkey-riding “nasreddin hoca” we think…

&

ucan essegine binen “nasreddin hoca” oldugunu dusundugumuz bu saheser telkare calismasi figurine vurulduk biz!

yine Gokcen Bey ve onun o muzelik koleksiyonu sagolsunlar… bu ciciyi onun izniyle cekmis bulunduk, sizinle paylasabilmek adina … muthis esprili bu cok yeniymis gibi gorunun parca oldukca eski… yapanlarin&saklayanlarin&paylasanlarin ellerinden opule…
