Merry-Go-Round: A few of my favourite things

As this year draws to a close, here are a few of my favourite things 'discovered'
this year...

Belly dancing:

Here in Turkey, belly dancing is reserved to an elite of professionals, they are very young, always beautiful, very skinny and extremely supple... They are truly incredible to watch! And having tried it myself, in all my 'rolls of fat' splendour, I can tell you that it goes beyond a few wiggles of the hips... It's tough, sensual, feminine and delicate, and an excellent exercise! Go oooon, try it, you know you want to... :)

The work of Sarah Williamson:

Her work just blows my mind away, it looks organic but it is soooo tidy and the wirework is UNBELIEVABLE!!! SOOOOOOO inspiring!!!

As always, cocktail ring are a few of my favourite things :)

Wendren's eye:

Wendren's blog is a visual treat full of surprises, packed with exotic and colourful photos, really well taken, that each time transports me in another world. Her vision is so inspirational, so is her philosophy, I love her new coffee bag, in fact I love all her bags! Wendren's work is filled with passion, and what impresses me most is the way she looks at the world around us, and generously shares her vision. Love the Wren!


I just loooove this! Steampunk is inspired by the 19th century mostly, when steam power was widely used. It has elements of improbable technological inventions, like in Jules Verne's work, and films like 'Wild Wild West' and 'The League of Gentlemen'. Steampunk fashion and jewellery just strikes a chord with me! I love the corsets, the long skirts, ladies with guns in bustle dresses, with jewellery made from bugs climbing on vintage watch movements... fabulous... :)

And here are my favourite people of the year 2009: The Merry Girls!!!
Please go and see a few of their favourite things of this year 2009... Direct links on the sidebar, thank you :)

Thanks for reading and see you next year!!!!

A candle for Santa... une bougie pour le Père Noël...

Ma contribution pour le défi ALM sur le thème de Noël, une bougie de corail rouge pour le que le Père Noël voit bien où déposer mes cadeaux... :D

A little candle for Santa, made of red coral and natural stones... I'll leave it on the night before Christmas, with milk and cookies... :P

Bagues... Rings...

Mes préferées: gigantesques mais légères, et brodées au MAXIMUM de perles et de pierres naturelles. Et vraiment FUN à fabriquer!!!

My favourites at the moment: they are gigantic, but light, and really FULL to the MAX with natural stones. Really FUN to make too!!

Smaller and + en + petit...
