Vintage faeries

Hello dear Bloggers!

Sara from Seaside Diaries of a Kimberline and I have decided to do a swap! So I made her a collage "Vintage Faerie" A faerie because Sara loves everything to do with magic and faeries! :) 
She is the nicest girlie full of warmth and humor. I did this collage in a vintage style because I love the look. I put a pink hat  and a dress on a picture of a vintage gal and  added a bottle with tiny beads to look like faerie dust. I also added some raw gold before the distilling process. 
And it looks like this! :) 
Go on and pop into her blog, it is so cute! 
 
I wish you all a wonderful day!  



Witajcie najmilsi blogowicze!

Z Sara z Seaside Diaries of a Kimberline zrobilysmy wymianke.Wiec zrobilam  zawieszke ,,Vintage wrozka,, .Dlatego wrozka poniewaz Sara uwielbia wszystko co zwiazane z    czarami i wrozkami.Sara to przemila osoba pelna ciepla i humoru.Zrobilam ta zawieszke w stylu vintage poniewaz uwielbiam ten styl.Przybralam  dziewczyne  z vintage zdjecia w rozowy kapelusik i sukienke ,dodalam mala buteleczke z maciopenkimi koralikami co ma imitowac pyl wrozek i przykleilam kamyczki zlota przed obrobka.

Nell

Hello dear ones! 
Nell Gwyn ( an actress and King Charles II's mistress 1650-1687) 
That is exactly why I chose her to "play" in my collage, as Juliet :) 
The oil on canvas of Nell Gwyn was painted by Sir Peter Lely - 1675. She is dressed up as a shepherdess. 
I cut out the sheep that she was holding and thus it fit perfectly with my project. :)
I also made a small wooden frame which I painted and used as a tag. 

hurricane Irene is nearing America, and the power of its winds will be felt in Canada as well! 
Lets all hold our fingers crossed for our friends in America! 

I wish you all lots of smiles and sunshine! 


Witam Was moi mili

Nell Gwyn ( aktorka,kochanka krola Charles II w latach 1650-1687)
Wlasnie dlatego ,ze byla aktorka obsadzialm ja w roli Juli do mojej zawieszki :)
Obraz olejny Nell Gwyn,namalowany przez Sir Peter Lely -1675 .Nell przebrana za pasterke.

Do Ameryki zbliza sie potezny churagan ,,Irena,, ktorego  sile wiatrow ma sie rowniez odczuc w Canadzie.
Trzymajmy ksciuki  za przyjaciol z Ameryki!
Zycze Wam duzo slonca i usmiechu

Shakespeare frame

Hello!

From an old edition of Shakespeare published in 1880 in Amsterdam, I made a frame for the two photos of my husbands parents. They laid forgotten in an album until my daughter asked me to frame them. The book could only be used for decoration since it is not written in a language I understand. Neither Polish nor English and lays there quite uselessly. I bought two of them at a yard sale!
I have some works by Shakespeare that are old but I can understand, so my heart didnt quite hurt so much taking this one. I will also use the pages themselves.

Then I made a dream catcher, but rather in a vintage style because that is what my girl asked me for. I have started another, and it will be a naval theme for my younger girl.

Theres cool winds and thunderstorm in Toronto today and I am thrilled after all that heat! But for those who like sunshine and heat, I wish you all a sunny day! 
Witajcie !
Ze starej ksiazki Shakespeare wydanej w 1880 w Amsterdamie zrobilam ramke do dwoch zdjec rodzicow meza.Lezaly w albumie zapomniane az wkoncu corcia poprosila mnie,zebym je oprawiala.
Ksiazka ta nadaje sie tylko do dekoracji nie bo jest napisana w jezyku ani polskim ni angielskim i lezy wlasciwie bezuzytecznie.Kupilam takie dwie na garage sale.
Mam piekne wydanie stare w jezyku angielskim Shakespeara wszystkie jego dziela wiec serce nie bolalo uzyc ja na ramke.Z reszty kartek rowniez cos zrobie ale to na gwiazkowe dekoracje.
Zrobilam rowniez ,,lapacz snow,,ale  nie w stylu native a raczej vintage bo o taki poprosila mnie moja corcia.Drugi  zaczelam robic  i bedzie on w stylu morskim navy dla mlodszej mojej corusi.
W Toronto dzis burza i chlodny wiatr wieje,wiec cala jestem w skowronkach po tych upalach ,ale dla tych co to nie przepadaja za szarymi i deszczowymi dniami sle duzo ,duzo slonca!

Little wish

Hello dear ones!
Today morning, after a couple of hours in labor, my cousin gave birth to a sweet baby! Little Ignas is lovely and healthy and my dear cousin is regaining strength! 
A while ago I started on a collage  for the occasion but it went snail pace. Yesterday my cousins husband called to let me know that Ludwisia is in labor. Well, I got a power up and finished up what I started. :) 
For the collage I used a vintage picture of a baby. Im not sure if its a girl or boy because they used to dress up small babies similarily. This is how it looks like. 
Double click to see the collage in bigger version
Cheers to all and have yourselves a wonderful day! 




Witajcie kochani blogowicze!
Moja kuzynka dzisiaj rano po kilku godzinnym porodzie urodzila slicznego dzidziusia.Malenki Ignas jest zdrowy i sliczny a moja kuzyneczka wraca szczesliwa do sil.

Zawieszka wyglada tak:

My daughter, Magda, was also mesmerized by them and decided to make her first one! I invite you all to Becky's blog. You'll find wonderful treasures there and loads of inspiration created by her talent!

funny

Hello dear ones!

Just look at the interesting instant noodles I found at my local creative store today! They have absolutely every naughty thing you can think of, and these I found hilarious without being relatively rude to any of you! And trust me, you have to have a very good sense of humor to go in and not be offended at at least one thing... but what fun! :) 
So enjoy the giggles ^.^ 

Wishing you all a sunny day! (Well, except for certain parts of America ;), to you guys, lots of cool, breezy and optionally rainy)



Witajcie moi mili!
Smieszne napisy na zupkach chinskich znalazlam dzis w sklepie :)Jest to sklepik z smiesznymi i czasami wulgarnymi rzeczami.
Nie dokladnie mozna przetlumaczyc  humor na polski jezyk.  Jest to angielski tak napisany jak by z akcentem chinskim co robi wyraz smieszny.na zdjeciu pierwszym np.,,pijany i goly,, druga zupka to ,,(brzydki wyraz ,kazdy wie co znaczy "f**k" )jedzenie,,Drugie zdjecie ,,Czesc leniuchu,,Tak jak powiedzialam moze nie zabrzmiec to smiesznie po polsku.Osoby zamieszkale po za polska beda wiedzialy o co mi chodzi.Przepraszam wszystkich za humor ktory nie moze wydadc sie humorem ale chcialam angielskim kolezanka pokazac co znalazam.To dokladnie tak sie czuje kiedy polskie dowcipy usiluje przetlumaczyc na angielski i kapletnie brak sensu i nikt sie nie smieje ....oprocz mnie:)
Duzo slonca dla Was przesylam
