Every inchie Monday 

This week we go to a country that I have visited! Turkey 

The splendours of topkapi palace and its harem in Istanbul as well as the Galata bridge, hajia sofia, blue mosque & immense covered bazaar were visited back in '77 when we drove out to the Middle East- fabulous! Also cappadocia and it's early Christian rock churches & underground cities, the crusader castles and indeed the wonderful Kilim woven's a fascinating place full of weird & wonderful that I had the pleasure of seeing before it became a trendy place to go.... pamukale hot springs was the only place I didn't get to see.

My first image is the rock chimneys of cappadocia then the flag & map.


  1. Great inchies! Love your other artwork too, beautiful pages!

  2. Lucky you to have visited Turkey, I am a little bit jealous :-)
    Your inchies are very nice.

  3. Great inches and journal pages.

  4. Fabulous pages Sally, I really like the Picasso quote you used.
    Your inchies look great as well, such a small area to work on but you have super results.

    1. My old encyclopaedia is coming in very handy!

  5. Love the art work, its great. I also love your take on Turkey. So many things I have never heard of about Turkey.

  6. Turkey has always seemed to me to be a very exotic place, so incredibly different to my own little environment and marvellous that you have been able to see and explore it. I always wanted to travel as a young person. Now I simply could not bear to be a "tourist" amongst a crowd of others viewing designated things within a designated time I stay home and read. Love your artwork and quotes, you have been busy. Dx
