Mashallah was one of the words I remember hearing as a child when we lived in Izmir, Turkey.  Mashallah literally means "in God's will".  It is also used to praise, express joy and gratefulness towards a person or happening.  The word is also used to offer respect and some say it as a protection against "the evil eye".  Say it out loud MASHALLAH - isn't amazing to say?

My mother spent a lot of time shopping in the markets in and around Izmir, Turkey when we lived there for several years when I was a child.  Many of the things I am attracted to have a middle eastern feel to them and most of my accessories in my own home are from our time in Izmir.

Here are a few of my favorites…...

Brass canisters that Turks used as lunch boxes


White Porcelain Figurines that I could stare at for hours…..
I can almost hear the swoosh of the dancing Dervish's skirt.

Worry beads look great on top of stacked books....



Maybe this should be the first pattern of our fabric line!


Footed Brass firewood holder …..

That I like to use for magazines!

This painted wooden figure was always apart of the family when playing with dolls as a child.  Check out his worry beads….

Mashallah is the perfect word to describe how we feel about all 
the amazing happenings we have surrounding us.

Have a Fabulous Week!

Shhhh...Don't tell Anyone…..

Shhhhh….don't tell anyone but I do not have Easter decorations.  I know.  It's bad.  I should have boxes of chachki's for each and every holiday.   I am thinking a better idea would be to have artwork that represents that particular holiday.  The perfect rationalization to buy more art.  

So for Easter here are a few ideas that could work as your holiday decor….

Emily Green's watercolors  make your walls say Happy Easter 



Ray Kass works on paper are even more beautiful in person….


and the most gorgeous bunny you have ever seen from Sears-Peyton Gallery
