The day after the party, after a bit of a sleep in (and with *hum* a slight hangover) we headed back to the ferry terminal where we hopped with many of the other guests from the night before on a Bosphorus cruise. The sun kept playing hide and seek with the clouds, there was a cool breeze, we got hot tea and savoury little cakes... it was the perfect, lazy way to recuperate in style.

I had never imagined I would ever attend such an amazingly international wedding; there were countless nationalities, beautiful customs, and many wonderfully colourful outfits - it was stunning.
I was lucky to be asked by our friends to be the one to photograph their special day and so I got to take it all in even better than anyone else. Here are a few shots from this beautiful, happy, loving day (and a couple from the evening before, when we had a henna session) so that you can feast your eyes too. Enjoy! :-)

A couple of weeks ago we got to spend several days in Istanbul for our friends' wedding. The party itself was a wonderful affair (more about that later) and the city - which we were discovering for the very first time - blew us away. On our first day there we decided to board a ferry at random and see where it would take us. It went straight to the Asian part of the city where we ended up in buzzing little streets and had a lovely lunch surrounded by locals only.

We spent the loveliest of weekends with our friends who were visiting from Denmark last week. It's so special to have people in your life whom you can't see that often but who stay so close in your heart... we did a whole lot of catching up, lulling in the park, making loom bracelets, dancing and singing to the soundtrack of Frozen, and eating good food... it felt like a holiday!

It's been months and months since my last post... apologies!
I thought I should share these adorable little rabbits though, and the shoebox house I made them as a birthday present for a very special little girl who had her birthday on Sunday.
I guess this isn't quite the style of houses Sylvanian families usually live in but since I had mostly modern interior magazines lying around (and since I much prefer this esthetic) this lucky bunch ended up in a pretty modern pad!
I sticky-taped a piece of cardboard in the middle of the shoebox to add a level to the house, glued 'wallpaper' and flooring, cut furniture out of magazines, glued them to the walls and... voila! :-)
Oh, I also made a tiny little garland out of hole-paper-punch left overs; I couldn't resist!
And since the birthday girl turned 4 I wrapped the whole thing into... four packages!
