Turkish woman


Wil from Artcreationsfriday made this glorious background for us to use in the challenge.
I dug out my Turkish woman photo which I made 26? years ago whilst we were travelling through Turkey with our then 6 week old and 2 year old boys .
This lady was totally taken with the blond little boys and I was by her face it's so full of character.
the house image came from Dover samples

Wil van artcreationsfriday hefet deze prachtige achtergrond voor ons gemakt om te gebruiken deze week. Ik heb gelijk mijn Turkse vrouw foto opgezocht , we kwamen haar 26 jaar geleden tegen tijdens onze rondreis door Turkye met de 2 oudste jongens die toen 6 weken en 2 jaar oud waren. . Zij was weg van hun blonde koppies en ik was weg van haar gezicht . Prachtig wat een karakter kun je er vanaf lezen.
Het huis plaatje is van Dover samplers

Ellen, you've made a beautiful art piece with a story behind it that is so fascinating. I can't imagine traveling to a foreign country with a 6 week old and a toddler, but I guess that's why babies are given to young people, not old! I love the face of the Turkish woman. The house also fits in perfectly with the woman and the background.
