All we Need is Love

All we need is love, even a heart shaped pouf :)
This one was never really anything special but a kid clearly didn't improve it by the time we scored it.

All the faux leather, out of shape foam and filling had to be removed.

Then it was time to choose the fabric, always fun to do.

An her she is with a pretty new dress and a whole new attitude :)

The top is a beautiful vintage embroidery, the sides a terracotta colored velvet.

Available at StarHomeStudio among other one of a kind furniture pieces.

Spring Vibes

We had fantastic weather this weekend so we took advantage of it this Sunday and went to our favorite brunch place where we haven't been for ages as it was raining the past few weekends.

Weather has been so warm lately that the mountains are full with daisies, poppies and other wild flowers. Everything is freshly green and the turtles have been coming out of their winter sleep.

I also took the time to take some pictures.

Besides tourism our town and surrounding villages income is mostly honey and fish.

This couple were busy with the hives, couldn't go too close as I'm allergic to bees, but you can see the bees flying around and please notice that the guy has no gloves on :/

Here they were searching for water with kind of an antique looking machine.

And what is Sunday without the beach?

All the fruit trees in bloom.

And even the village's cemetery was floral.

Get The Look Vol.10

We have listed lots of new Vintage treasures lately so time for another Get the Look :)
I love the look of birdcages, not their purpose, they look great with plants. Also love Baskets, our bird cage is kind of both at the same time!

Love these egg succulents, perfect for Easter but also Spring in general. We have a small selection of beautiful vintage Easter decorations in the shop.

This colorful kitschy flower look is not for everyone, but you can't deny its warm and homey feeling :) Our antique mirrors would be a good start for this look!

I love house shaped boxes and shelves, for some reason they are usually used for kid's rooms, I like them in general. We have a fun House shaped basket box from the 1980's.

I have shown oars before but I just love them and no one can stop me from sharing them again ;)
We only have this pair left, a pretty set to put in a corner or hang on the wall.

Photo shoot Expedition - day 2

Here is the second day of last week's weekend, you can see the first day here.
Our first stop were Lycian tombs made a long time ago in the top mountains of Fethiye. The Lycians, from Cretan origin, were present between Fethiye and Antalya till about 42 BC.

On our way to our second stop we cam across two Ostriches, such funny creatures.

Their feet are huge, no wonder they can run 70 km an hour (45 mph)!

Our second stop took a few hours, it is Kayak√∂y or with its original name Levissi. It is an abandoned  town.

The town was deserted in 1923 and has two churches and used to house 3000 people. The Catholic Greeks had to move away due to the politic climate of those times.

Nature has been taking over the town, but not very much as it attracts visitors.

And also goats and sheep are keeping the grass at bay.

 It was a strange experience to walk around in such a ghost town.

Our third stop was Dalyan, both famous for being a popular place for Caretta Caretta's to lay their eggs on the beach and again some more beautiful tombs in the mountains. The Lycians,  were present between Fethiye and Antalya from 1400 BC till about 42 BC when Brutus invaded.

Our last stop was Akyaka, only 25 km from our town for another sunset shoot :)
