I promise, I’ll shut up about Istanbul very soon! But I wanted to show some of the things I got on my little trip. I didn’t go over the top. But I’m really happy with the things we brought home.
When I saw these Poufs at the Grand Bazar, I immediately got one (if immediately means walking passed them a lot and endless deliberating with the Boyfriend). And I’m pretty happy with the shape and pattern of it! Mini also thinks it’s great, because to him it’s basically a mattress.
Boyfriend decided he wanted a dish, a hand made/painted original dish. And after a lot of haggling he made a pretty good deal. I must say i’m a little surprised by his taste, because I really like it too! 😉Of course I wanted something just for me as well. So I got this necklace, deciding to buy it took me even longer than the pouf! It’s basically a long piece of string with beads on it and you just wrap it around your neck. Of course I also needed a pair of earrings (the ones with green stones) to ‘complete’ the necklace.
Mini also deserved a few gifts, so he got a pair of turkish slippers among other things. I also brought home a print with Turkish birds from the Istanbul Modern Museum. And a year ago I decided to start a little collection of snowglobes of places I’ve been. So far I have three… So I brought one of the Aya Sophia back with me, that makes four. That means my collection is really taking off now 😉
