On Blue Doors, Yarn Cakes and Bohemian Dreams

 
 
When I planned the photo shoot for my crochet tubes lookbook, I had a specific place in mind that would have been perfect for my bohemian jewelry.
 
This specific place is actually the entrance of an ethno restaurant which with its arches and bricks resembles a mix of a souk and a medieval street. Can you imagine that? And the greatest jewel it hides? An old looking blue door.  It's not real blue - it's more of a teal that changes color depending on the day light. An extraordinary setting to bring to life our bohemian stories.
 
But there is a *Silvia in this story too. Well, you see Silvia had no consideration nor understanding of our plans. She brought over her luggage of dim grey clouds and threw her tantrums in the shape of large shiny raindrops and shooed us away.
 
Seeking a safe haven we used our plan B and went to this new place  a couple of steps away from our first designated location, which we have eyed for a long time but never actually sat for coffee or lunch and we found pure joy!
 
I cannot describe how we felt at the spread of beautiful colors in front of our eyes!  We played with our cakes and necklaces and here's the result. I jokingly named the necklace Eva is wearing 'tetris' because it reminded me of the game and the name just stuck with us. The lookbook  we shot these pictures for will contain tutorials how to style the tubes and make them more adventurous. I am excited about it and cross my fingers I manage to create it the way I've imagined it!

Happy weekend!
 
*For three weeks now, my part of the world has been  under the influence of a cyclone, meteorologists named Silvia. Luckily, news is she is bound to leave us soon!

I love, love, love the colour scheme of this unplanned photo shoot. Suddenly Silvia doesn't look that bad as she gave you this unexpected last minute present, don't you think? ;-)

Love the tube necklace, love the shoot and love the whimsy of a yarn cake :D So cool Maya. Definitely one of those times where every cloud has a silver lining, or in this case a rainbow riot of colors. Beautiful
