Romantic Dry Roses

Dry roses with the beautiful handmade lace table cloth by me in this photo

I love to have roses in my home and studio to create full of positive energy with romantic beautiful color combinations. I prefer the colors depend my mood but I can say yellow, white and dark pink roses are my favorites. I also like to dry them to create dramatic vintage look in my environment that makes me feel the endless beauty.
Here is my way to dry roses:
Look for roses that are in full bloom but have not yet started to fade.
Tie them from the bottom and hang on something so they can dry upside down with the same beautiful shape.

I found this cute beautiful garden photo from wehkamp magazine with dry roses..I absolutely want to try to keep them on my wall with the same way..And drinking hot turkish tea with a nice breakfast in the early morning next to it..
My etsy shop has some beautiful flower inspired designs and I put my words into my description of this hand crocheted silver lace brooch Carnation design to express my feeling

If you give me a fresh carnation
Pink dancing petals with white touches
I'll add my happiness
with a shimmering rhinestone
white freshwater pearls and rose quartz
to draw my dream
Honey suckle pink and silver vintage seed beads will run
all over on the edges of carnation skirt
And then
I will add my carnation
on my colar
to save your gift
till forever

Altin Kelebek was Sold

Altin Kelebek which means gold butterfly in Turkish was sold from my Etsy shop to someone in the state of Georgia. Beautiful hand forged gold plated butterfly was suspended to titanium band and ended with gold plated toggle..I mailed it yesterday to her and hope to hear from her soon...
I have one more Altin Kelebek bracelet with the very unique large toggle ready to list in my Etsy shop..

Here is my words for my butterfly bracelet

Where do you fly
with your tiny and happy
wings in the air
even lighter and brighter than
my dreams

How long you are going to stay there
one day for me
one long life for you

We remember wide legs,bell-bottoms pants from 1970's as hippie style. When Cher and Sonny Bono started to keep wearing these paints in their Tv shows, the trend took over all the world and everybody was in this fashion..The biggest concern how wide the legs were...Even there was a saying "when you turn the corner your legs should turn 10 minutes after you"
Now, it is very popular in Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes's wardrobe not just for spring of 2011, with beautiful materials for fall-winter of 2011 as well..

Christian Dior, Derek Lam, Alice+Olivia, Armani Collezioni, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Missoni, YSL and Valentino have great jean wide legs,bell bottoms jean paints. Elie Tahari,Marc Jacobs and Sienna Miller's Twenty 8 by Twelve have these wide legs paints with fabric ...

I always loved to wear wide legs,bell bottoms palazzo paints as well especially when I was younger:) It is good to know this fashion came back but not for everybody..It is very risky to have these paints unless you have long legs and light weight...
These type of paints are great with a slim-fitting top to balance out the volume on the bottom half. A soft, billowing blouse can also work well but is best broken up with a waist-cinching belt, heel shoes to seem taller or espadrilles, wide belts to camouflage (if it is necessary) some fat around the belly, and a big floppy hat to look more stylish...
I can also suggest my recent cuff design with taffeta from Fall-winter collection of 2011

I've been watching some fashion shows recently and getting excited to see this great look just like a swan..
I also like to remind you after 40 years today we are going to have vintage paints to share same fashion with our children so don't give them up..

Stay stylish,

Children needs food in Africa

Empathy is valued currency. It is great to create bonds of trust, to share the feeling or thinking. And even it may be so right to say it is being human. When we are in our shoes trying to understand others situation is happiness and success for some people. Happy and successful people comes together to create big families or large successful companies. Career starts to raise happy children who knows happiness is growing together without giving any damage to others or holding hands to walk together for peace on our earth. Large brand name companies spread their words, names through their company personalities to create honest and trustworthy expressions on public to show all these effort is to do something for people.
Now, Africa is hungary...Children dies...
Almost a $3.00 is enough for one person's daily food and $110.00 is enough to help a family with 5 members for their monthly food expenses.
Turkish Red Crescent Society started to collect money for Africa in Turkey (Turkiye) This is our world to save for our children where ever we are. This is personal happiness and success to do something for others.
We all need to remember this drama is in Africa today but we don't know where is gonna be tomorrow?
