Selling, not buying...

 The last Wednesday
of this rainy may,
I thought ''enough!'',
and packed up all my extra stuff.
Sold it for what people wanted to pay
and at the end, gave it all away.
No clutter in the home is no clutter in the mind?
I'm on the right path, that is what I will find!
View from our little stand
These cuties luckily found a new home!

Birds for sale...
More pretty birds for sale...
He was on another flea market
in Schriek, a while ago

Shop-a-licious Istanbul

was full
of great bazars with stuff
of which my camera and I could not get enough.
Things to see on every side
and salesmen full of pride.
Colour, fabric, light and sent
I wanted it all, but thought of my rent!

The hummingbird

If there is one thing in nature I am amazed by,
it is by how these little wonders fly.
It is not just a bird to me
it stands for everything that is free...
It's a symbol and has meaning
and gives me a certain feeling.
It brings back so many memories...
if only I could relive these.
I would be in a place and with people I love
without the sadness and pain and stuff...
One of these dear people just sent me this text
and once gave me the bird you see on the picture next...

Flying hummingbird

"Legends say
that hummingbirds float free of time,
carrying our hopes for love, joy, and celebration.
The hummingbird's delicate grace reminds us that life is rich,
beauty is everywhere,
every personal connection has meaning,
and laughter is life's sweetest creation."
From Papyrus' beautiful greeting cards.

Boatilicious Istanbul

was full
of different shades of blue...
In these pictures I will show you
How I went from Europe to Asia and back
on this boat's deck.
The wind in my hair and a cup of tea
awesome Turkey if you ask me!

On the Asian side.

From on the ferry...
Hello other ferry!

The cutest little egg!

Our cutest little hen,
of which I am totally a fan,
layed the cutest little egg,
look below, no need for a tag!
It was her first and a second and third came,
but none of them look quite the same...
The little white one is hers, the big one is a 'normal' egg.

The first

Today was the first
and will not be the last...
I've built up a thirst,
because it was a blast!
I was part of a fair
and had a little stall,
lot's of lovely people there,
thank you to all!
