One Last Look at Istanbul

I have more memories
than if I were a thousand years old.
-Charles Baudelaire

... and just as suddenly as I showed up, I flew away. I've crossed back over the ocean with Istanbul now a thousand beautiful memories - flashes of stone and spice and sea.

Looking forward to showing you spring at Freeman House. We'll meet back there tomorrow. Thanks for hanging in while I flitted about. -Brin

Brin, it was a true pleasure to "hang in" while you were in Istanbul. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Now I'm ready for spring at Freeman House...I'm ready for spring anywhere!

Great pics these past few days! But what I really wanna know is... how did the red lipstick and the fake eyelashes hold up? hehe

Never had any interest in Istanbul - until now, after seeing these gorgeous pictures. Can't wait to get the "rest" of the story!

The way you took your quick trip was probably as close to perfect as you can get for inspiration -- impressions, not yet sorted, categorized and boxed away, lacking the sharp day-to-day perspective that causes us to dismiss and underestimate. Almost dream-like. Cool.

I have one pressing question, I hope you don't mind. Did you buy some saffron? If you did, which kind? Other spices?
