More Turkey and Greek Finds

I know I should have posted this closer to my other Turkish posts, but I got a little bit lazy. Ooops :)

The blue, black, tan and white graphic find is actually a cushion made of lambskin. The color combo and bold graphic are so emphatic, esp coming from the remote area in Ephesus, I had to get it. Check out the first picture with the lambskin detail and stitching. Now I just need to stuff it with foam, then it’ll have a purpose other than looking pretty. :D On top of the cushion is a leather satchel with Greek figures artistically embossed in the leather. I also love how the buckle and strap are designed to be on the bottom of the bag. It’s works well with the shape and let’s you enjoy the artwork. 

Inside the Hagia Sophia
One of the coolest buildings I went to in Istanbul.
It was once an Orthodox Cathedral, Basilica, and a Mosque. Walking around, you can really see each transformation the building had gone through. From fresh Muslim script hanging off balconies to Christian mosaics of icons peeling off walls, it was unbelievable seeing it all under one beautiful roof.  It was a different world, like  2 of the most popular religions and cultures living harmoniously together, rather than clashing against each other.
I wish I could post up all of the photos of the artwork on here, maybe I&#8217;ll do another post with more pictures.  View high resolution

Turkish Bag
I ended up using the bag throughout the trip. It&#8217;s that kind of bag and accessory that you can just throw on whenever and pair with anything, well in my opinion. The length was long enough to swing around without hitting anyone and the size is big enough to put all your important traveling necessities. Knowing me, I&#8217;d end up cramming my whole life in my bag (Can&#8217;t help it, I was an art student for 5 years).  Plus, it&#8217;s just a fun accessory.  View high resolution

Check out the bags I got from Turkey. The first one I&#8217;ve actually had for over a year now from when my mom went last. But since I got the chance to go myself, I had to get another. It&#8217;s just a great accessory that flaunts itself.  I just love the shape of the bag, the Medusa eye tassles dangling off the front , and the strap that zips into 2 straps for you can wear as a back pack.
Honestly, I hardly cared about the functionality or if it&#8217;s trendy, it was more of about loving that fact that it&#8217;s so unique and that it was bought off the streets of Cannakale in Turkey&lt;&#8212;&#8212;that just sounds cooler. =)
More Jeopardy for ya: 
Medusa eye represents Good Luck, so the more you have, the better. If you&#8217;re shopping around Greece and Turkey and end up buying a few things, don&#8217;t be surprised if the shop owners give a bunch of loose Medusa Eyes as a little travel gift.  View high resolution
