Golds and Blues Ring
I watch TV..… my day does not start well if I do not listen to music, then I clean the house in the early morning
I put my make up….
At around 8 o’clock, I leave the house to take a tram to go to the “Grand Bazaar” area where all the silver and semi-precious stone wholesalers are located…it is really fun to chat with the owners/employees…they offer tea/coffee for free
At around 9:45 I go to our street cafe to have my Turkish Coffee with medium sugar..and of course read my newspapers…I really love here especially in the summer time..it is always crowded…although it looks like sheds, you can come across with many famous writers, actors, actress, directors and etc
Before going to my shop, I pass by my street florist to buy some flowers for my shop…today I bought KOKINA..this flower is only sold christmas/new year time in Turkey…
There is a famous Pickle House just in the corner of my shop, it is a quite famous and biggest shop in Turkey…every tourist takes photos of the variety
Finally I reach to my small haven at around 10:15 I place the flowers to my recycled vases…they were wine bottles months agoJ I work form my orders..during New Year time mostly I prepare angels for both my shop and other sales corners.
During the day, my friends and of course :) customers visit me.
I visit my neighbours…next to my shop there is an antique fabric shop called LEYLA…very specilalized on especially Ottoman fabrics, French laceworks and etc..
and then I pass by to a vintage shop called MOZK..they rent their clothes for films and TV series…they have hundreds of costumes…I lost myself, when I go there. My friends Berk and his wife Selda prepares different themes in front of their shops..and they change it regularly...this is really fun :)
I buy my fruits from horse car, always fresh
At around 8 p.m. I close my shop….I make shopping from a local supermarket…today I bought one of my favorite fish “Salmon” and eat some Turkish appetizers –stuffed pepper and wine leaf called DOLMA, and some KISIR, which is prepared with BULGUR…those are my favorite appetizers
After checking my mails and of course ETSY for the last time, -If I still have an energy- I go out with friends to have some drinks…and as you can see after a couple of wine I took these kind of photos :)
At 11.30 p.m.time to clean my face…..and zzzzz….
