Our Creative Space...

These past few days I have been having lots of fun with painting beach pebbles. The past few years I haven't been able to paint paintings due to lack of time and space so these have been a great outlet for me.

I've finished this bird last night, inspired by the feather (which is included in the set). I also found three little egg shaped pebbles in our stash making the set complete, I will list it later today in the decor shop.

Up till now I've only used black and white and creating grey tones with those, I'll maybe later on start using colors too but somehow I like this color scheme for the moment as the pebbles are also in these colors.

Listed this set last night, I love seahorses, they are so pretty and fragile, and the fact that they are the only creatures where the men get pregnant makes my feminist side happy and extra fond of them :)

It gives me lots of pleasure to make these so be sure to check out the shop often as I'm sure more will appear soon :)

Our Creative Space...

I was busy with an epoxy session yesterday, once I start I can not stop till it is finished, meaning not even a toilet break lol :)

I did a whole bunch of shells, once they are collected from the beach the wet shiny look goes away and mat and dull shells are what you have, the epoxy brings back that wet shiny look and the colors pop out nicely. As they are round I stuck them all to a toothpick in to a piece of oasis, you know that stuff florists use to arrange flowers. This way they will dry pretty all around.

There was also a whole bunch of sea urchins, our harvest from the past few months. After cleaning, filling and cleaning them again they are now also treated with epoxy to make them strong.

Some are not so pretty so will be painted. The spots usually happen in the sea when they get hit by a rock, there skeleton gets damaged but it doesn't harm themselves. This whole bunch is collected during the past few months on many beaches by walking many miles on rocky shores. As the filling and epoxy part is a messy job I do large lots at once.

Going back to Fairyland

A few years ago we showed you this magical place, but six years have passed and nature has run its course through the place and it has become even greener, more magical and rustic.

This is a little 'restaurant' on the side of a pretty busy road. You can drive right pass it as it has hardly any indications of what the place is. The menu is simple: meatballs or chicken, with a salad of your choice. It is run by two older men, both with white beards reminding of the dwarfs from fairyland, only snow white is missing.

It has some regular tables for those who do not want to be too close to nature, each with an adorable flower arrangement, the vases are dried gourds.

Everywhere you will find old or handmade items, some are both, lots are made with natural findings which slowly are destroyed by nature but new items appear constantly.

The exterior of the building can hardly be seen because of all the plants, still growing or dried.

Here they made a roof, this was not here the last time we came here I guess they couldn't handle all the 'green' in this area. In the center is a big table, like an altar it is full with dried flowers, clearly the ones of the tables that dried out and left there, giving it a very surreal effect.

Here a detail of all the dried flowers and gourds, it is like they didn't have the heart to throw away the flowers so instead they leave them here to let them 'pass away' in their own time.

We, of course, did not sit on a neat table but went to the more rustic part where the tables are natural wood and you are right in the middle of a wilderness.

Where ever you look, up or down, you will discover all kind of things like baskets, birdhouses, bicycles, wheels, pots and more odds and bits.

The deeper you get in to this magical place the wilder it becomes, these tables are not much used and are taken over by nature, giving it a beautiful abandoned feeling, I love how nature takes over places like this.

Further down the path we go towards the kitchen, which is needless to say also outside.

Baskets full of garlic.

And the kitchen with the gnome :)
Those chandelier kind of things are made of hand rolled paper.

A kitchen can't be safe without fire extinguishers, but I doubt that these will work, they do make a fun decoration.

The cook was so busy that it took him a while for him to notice me, he gave me a big grin and then continued with his work full concentration.

These smart two were right in front of the kitchen, looking very content.

Needless to say that the food is fresh and delicious.

Once it gets dark the magic becomes even more intense. If you are ever in the neighborhood of Marmaris this restaurant is on the road between HisarönĂ¼ and Bozburun, I can give you directions :)
