the week in photos : March

Finely got some jewelry work done! and some pretty new stuff are here to show!

 As you can see, miselanious colors, not following any style or "design thread", i make what i think is pretty, inspired from this and that, my work is like my mind , "a little from everything is better tan alot of one thing" :)
  This is the first part, other new things are comming soon !

the peach tree finely blossomed

   one of the yummiest things to taste if you ever come to Tunisia is Mlawy, a kind of homemade bread made with semolina, flour,  worked with olive oil and cooked on some kind of traditional clay pan!
mostly a breakfast bread so very good with honey or butter. you realy should try it !

    you may know this by now: i'm a huge fan of all thing traditional and "artisanal" , tunisian morrocan folkloric items. last saturday i got a basic white musk perfume oil from the traditional perfume market "elattarine"(perfume makers) and i got also this lovely hand blowen glass bottle for just 5dt ( about 2$) it's synthetic or plant based white musk but its very subtle, it doesnt make me sneeze like most commercials perfumes and it's reasonably cheap , a real good deal! i'll be back there to get the jasmine and rose ittr soon , they're heavenly calming and discret, great for a shy lady who doesnt like to be smelled from 2 blocs like me ;)

hope you had a lovely week !

see you soon

The corner coffee lounge

       Last saturday we had our breakfast at The corner coffee lounge.

 i loved the simple style and the cosy atmosphere, we sat at the "non smoker" part and it wast a bit empty wich we liked :)
 my sister made a reservation of the "breakfast for two" menu and we enjoyed each and every part of it!

 i recommend everything in the menu, i've never ate that much for breakfast !

      the waitress is so charming and smily , the manager asked for our opinion  personly wich is very polite i think.
      conclusion  :gourmet breakfast and a warm ambience, what's more to ask in a place to eat :)!

hope you had a yummy weekend

see you soon

Post attack

      If you didnt know, a terrorist attack had place in the Bardo museum last wednesday. 21 people died, most of them tourists. this horrible and idiotic act was meant to scare us and the visitors, but it didnt work, the terrorists stupidity and death is a waste. we're not scared, we're going out, we're living our lives and enjoying it even more. this idiology of death and darkness of the ISIS fungus cant grow in the sunny smily joyful Tunisia.  we love life, colors, kindness, and happiness, we celebrate the most random occasions, we're not going to surrender to some "rats" who worship death. needless to say this as most people know it now. islam isnt a religion of death. and this ISIS should be called DSIS ( Death State of Iraq and Syria) .
  these are some photos i took last saturday of the lovly Medina of Tunis, joy, colors, peace, life. i was glad to see so many lovely tourist enjoying their time there wich is heart warming .

   the following photos are som details of the Hamouda Bash mosque.
the writing are poetry .

This bright yellow door cought my eye , our love of life and colors cant fade so easely .

hope you had a better week .

see you
