Let me tell you what's in this strange mind, this mind full of flowers, full of love - a carefree mind. Well, a little bit of everything, as any mind in this world but with a little more dose of magic. Besides,that's why I'm living in Flower Dust World... You know what they say..<<One picture is a thousand words>>
"Still life with Woodpecker"- from Tom Robbins is the book that I'm reading these days....
I'm into french music this period and I've found an amazing site for jazz.Its this one
Aaand that's how my hair look in the morning.. :P
I have a lot of energy but I know that in a few days I'm going to be exhausted by studying(like those lovely cats below-haha). However, I'm thinking "Hey, it's going to be a good exams-period with breaks for friends, that I have about 2 months to see and fun stuff.
I draw a lot (this is not a current drawing but I'm about to finish one soon-I'm gonna post it later ;) )
and I write poems, notes, it depends on anybody's' point of view. It would be nice if I had the spunk to publish them here but I'm not that sure If I want to share this side of myself yet or not.
I learned more stuff about sewing from my grandma Zoe and I'm really happy about it !!!! <3 <3 <3
Have you done a summer report? See you soon with another flowery post.
* All pictures apart from those that shows me and my drawing are taken from sites on the internet such as pinterest etc.
This is it. This is the costume for my friends'-Christinas' performance. To remind you what is about, Christina, has to externalize the feeling of loss. She had to make her costume with alternative materials, she needed a lot of creativity and you know what they say.. : "Two minds are better than one"[at least we do say it in Greece :P] so she asked my help whch I gave her with pleasure.
We came up with the idea that we implemented at last. Because of my "sewing knowledge" I made the cropped- top from nylon, with buttons at the back. The belt is coated with many fabrics in order to be sturdy and the crinoline is made from thin curlers- braids.It took us hours to make the braids but I think that the result reward us.
I really hope that Christina is going to do her best as well as the professor will be pleased and generous with grades.! Good luck sweetie! <3
As for me, in about a week-ten days, I'm going back to my "university town" in order to start studying for exams. I've missed my friends there and I can say that I kind of missed my life there. Can't wait to start subjects at college, be creative and a little workaholic cause I have set some high goals this year.
Hello hello.. Let's make a summer report! Summer holidays haven't finished yet, however, if I would made an adjustment I could say that was the beeeest holidays ever!! :P Haha, ok I know that I am talking like a five years old child, but that's how I am feeling. In my point of view, I deserved it, cause I had a difficult winter with a lot of stress which causes some physical problems that I'm close enough to tide over. So, this period for me was really creative, I wrote some poems-notes that I am going to post sometime here(I want to share them with you), I made some constructions, I traveled a lot and had so much fun with my friends! I feel full of energy and I am ready to start my exams hoping that the results are going to be good.
Great news! Ok, here's the thing. You might remember my friend Christina, cause I have mentioned her on previous posts. Well, she is doing theatrical studies, she is an artist and she loves what she is doing. She is a girl with many fresh ideas and full of talent- I am not telling that because she is one of my best friends. It's a fact. :) She is going to present a small action where she has to externalize the feeling of loss. She needed to make her costume with alternative materials and she asked my help. Without unnecessary words, we came up with a perfect idea. We are going to construct a skirt from wire, something like those constructions that women in the past centuries wear under their dresses in order to stand properly and a top made by nylon. How do you find it?
Good evening lovers of flowers and magic! Here's my catch up with another travel post-another spot of my vacations. Larisa. My grandma Mary lives there and has a lovely house, I enjoy spending time with her by cooking, making tasteful desserts, chatting for almost everything and having coffee while watching people passing the streets. Our best companion is flowers and beautiful plants. She has a lovely garden. <3 There's been a long time since we spent that much time together and I have to say that I enjoyed a lot! :)
This is my little friend Billy. He was my "buddy" while I was writing some notes.
I was trying to relax so I wasn't with my camera the whole time. For more photos you can visit my instagram
My exams are going to start soon but my posts will be regular ;)
Brace yourselves, Flower Dust World's fans!! Here is a new post, full of photos from "Istanbul" You may have seen some of them oninstagrambut here's the big stuff.. I warn you that this is a huge post, so take your coffee, your ice-cream or your iced lemon juice and enjoy! :)
On the first day, was the arrival to the town. We've gone to the center on foot and because of my love for old buildings I took many photos of them!!
Taksim Square!! There was a doom! It was so crowded, people layed down on the grass to take a rest, children played all around us and the people became more and more as the night went on.
Rides with small trains, lots of food, shops with clothes, accessories, shoes, traditional clothing and so many other stuff!
Desserts with Chocolate, my only love! <3 <3 <3 However, baklava, marshmallows
and other Turkish delights were all around.
The thing that impressed me in Turkey was that there was so much green around us! Flowers in many colors and different species. Second day, a ride around the town with the bus. The building with the red top is the Turkish state TV and the white one, with the red top on next pictures is the famous hotel that Agatha Christie stayed there and inspired of the novel "Murder on the Orient Express".
Our next stop was at "Zoodochos Pigi of Baloukli, or Virgin Mary Baloukliotissa temple". We took some holy water and we sang the <<Akathist Hymn>>.
AsAkathistos hymn, we called generally every Orthodox Christian hymn which is sung faithful upright. sung in the temples during the first five Fridays of Great Lent. The Akathistos Hymn is regarded as a masterpiece of Byzantine hymnography. Here are some tombs of the Patriarchs which I find great creations!
Flowers and shapes.. remember?? O.O
Prigipos, an island from Prigiponissia! So much beauty in one place, plus as the day passed the crowd became more!
I had a horse ride around the island, it was amazing despite of the smell which was pretty intense.
Before my visit to Prigiponissia, our group went to the covered market, Kapali Tsarsi-Grand Bazzar.
I bought a pair of earrings!(amazing)
The 3rd day, begun with a Bosphorus Cruise! We saw old palaces that now are closed, or working as hotels and holiday houses of rich and famous people.
Around the old race horse area.
Mple Tzami or Mosque of Sultan Ahmet,
Agia Sofia- "Hagia Sofia"
From 360 to 1453 was Orthodox cathedral of Constantinople, except for the period 1204 to 1261 when it was a Roman Catholic church, and after the fall of Konstantinoupoli was converted into a mosque until 1934 and now is a museum.
Let's take a closer look from the inside!
The night was really promising! We went to a traditional restaurant, where we ate amazing food, listened to topic music and... enjoyed the dance of three beautiful oriental dancers.
After we watched the show, we also danced and have fun, we are greek anyways.. :D
Last day, our return to Greece and we stopped by the Patriarchate.
Me and my lovely mother! <3
Oops! Great skip. I haven't point you my company yet. My fellow travelers were my mother and my grandma! We had so much fun and we made many friends from our group! Our guide-Katerina, was amazing. She had a lot of knowledge and made our trip really pleasant!
I hope that I gave you a nice picture of my little trip to Istanbul!
