Balcony Time

I gues its a little too late to do this post but never too late then never.

My balcony all set for the summer, so here it is.

Before I had off to my balcony I always have my Turkish coffe ready with my fav dried fruits.

Dried fruits, I always have them around my tv table, my coffee table, even when I was working my office table.

My seas view from the balcony

The glass jar looks empty then but its more then full now of the rocks and shells that Talya collected from the beach

Here we have Talya with her fruit yogurt

And myself with my coffee

And at night I light up my green, red and blue lights.

Tablecloth or Bedspread - Lace and Silver

The lace tablecloth has a funny story.

When my grandma visited Prague she bought the lace as a bedspread for me to use whenever I get married.  She stitched rose color satin underneath the lace and afterwards she stitched beads, sequins and pearls.

She wanted me to use it when I got married for my bedroom bedspread, unfortunately she did not get to see me being a bride but one part of me is happy as she did meet my honey (Oğuz) and did know that one they we would get married.

So I got married with my honey (Oğuz) at 06/09/2002 (yes my anniversary is very close), my mom gave the lace bedspread to me and we did put it on my bed but my mom and I at the same time said, it looks good but not on the bed!!!

So she said if you like I could turn this into a tablecloth without the rose colored satin underneath, so I said give it a try as I know my mom makes wonders with everything.

So here you go it became a beautiful tablecloth without the satin but I did want to keep all the sparlking beads, sequins and the pearls that my grandma stitched onto it.

Since 2002 I have been using it with love and a huge love for my grandma and mom as they both  did wonderful job.

I wanted to share you my tablelecloth/bedspread with silvers glittering all over it.

So today is Tablescrape Thursday I will be joinging the party at Susan's as the host of Betweennapsontheporch.


One other thing my little angel Talya, has her own blog and she wanted to enter the tablescape party too, so please visit her blog aswell. Thank you in advance for visiting my angels blog.


Here is the tablecloth

My mom left the pink little bows as I wanted to see all the things my grandma made with her own hands.

You can see the beads and the sequins here

The pearls are stitched here

These silver desert forks belonged to my grandma and passed onto me, the white gold trimmed porcelain desert plates was my moms and she managed to save 12 of them safely so I get to use them now for 9 years, I also keep them safe too (nock on wood)

The silver tray belonged to my grandma aswell, she bought the silver çay (tea) saucers and the silver çay (tea) spoons in 12 sets and I love using them

This also belonged to my grandma she served lemon in this crystal and silver dish next to her tea ware

This was bought by my mom from LA when I was a kid, can you imagine how long she waited so I can use this!!!!!!

The tea cansiter is also a gift from my mom and the silver tray was hers when she got married

This two silver candle holders was a gift I bought for myself when I was just a newly-wed

This silver teapot is a gift from my honey (Oğuz)

The silver picther is a gift from my dad

This small silver basket tray is a gift from my daddy too, people know what to buy me I tell you!!!

The silver tea set was bought by my mom from LA when I was a kid aswell

This is something I picked up from a local store I thought it would be very useful in different ways I use it here as a desert spoon holder.

The desert silver spoons are very old and the small silver tray is for to serve a glass of water to the guests which the spoon and the tray belonged to my grandma

I saw this silver jam jar in a magazine long long time ago and my dad just ran into it so a gift from dad which made me very happy

This is something I picked up last christmas from a local store

Here is my mom reading her newpaper as I decorate my table.

Now this piece is very special as it is a gift from my honey (oğuz) when we were engaged he filled it with chocolates and brought it to me in a very beautifully packed way.

I had to take the picture as it was looking right at me, now this picter and plate is from my grandmas house I remeber it very well and then went on to my mom, my mom bought the porcelian flowers from Italy and after I got married this beautiful flowered picther came to be mine

Ahhhhhh finally I got my moms attention for taking her picture, say cheese!!! (click)
