A different perspective


What is that?

Knock...

...or not to knock?

A wisdom ....

...hidden in bottles.

Tell me, silly human, who needs wisdom in bottles when everybody knows it's in brains. Poppets brains of course!

Ah! The window....

...I was looking...

...throug inside.
I found poppets looking around at Etsy pages. Or maybe they found me? That was love at the first sight for me and soon I was reading and following The slaughter house studio's blog. Guided by Lisa Snelling, the poppets creator, I learned about the poppets and their symbiosis with silly humans. I just had to have one poppet just for me!Who doesn't need a bit of wisdom in a pocket anyway?;) So here he is, the Poppet That Lives in Poland:) I love the idea of poppets on tour and so The Poppet that Lives in Poland started his tour with the Snape's office.
Hope you won't mind I will be posting this little wise fellow here:)

Little poppet and his orchid.;)

Na poppety trafiłam tradycyjnym przypadkiem przeglądając sobie sklepiki w Etsy. Od samego początku mnie zauroczyły, zauroczyła mnie też historia ich stworzenia przez Lisę Snelling oraz pomysł z poppetami w podróży. Mój przyleciał w piątek i swoją podróż poprostu musiał zacząć od gabinetu Severusa :) Mam nadzieję, że nie macie nic przeciwko temu, że będzie się tu często pojawiał? :)U góry fotki z pierwszego zwiedzania i zastanawiania się po co tym niemądrym ludziom tyle mądrosci w butelkach zamiast w głowie?;)

Tabitha Corsica said...

This is very unique. And I so admire the quality of your photographs....they look so real it is as if you have been made small and stepped right into the scene. How do you do that??!!

Makes me want to stop taking pictures right now :-(

Eva said...

Lovely new perspective :)
I think that your puppet can be a good traveller in your blog. I like the idea :)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Ira! There is a lot to do, still a lot shelves are empty;)Do check the blog I had fun there :)

Margaret said...

What wonderful photos of poppet's tour. I love the first shots of him standing in front of the intriguing door and gazing through the window, etc. You could make it into a small storybook!

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much, Kate! Yes, I too have this impression poppet decided it is his office ;)Well, since there is no sign of Snape yet, he can stay there ;)

The Dangerous Mezzo said...

I love The Poppet Who Lives in Poland! And I adore your photos and how far along Snape's office has come!

The Old Maid said...

Oh, no! Please, don't stop Tabs! I love to see your creations! My camera is Canon SX200 chosen only because of macrophotography ;) It does make quite good photos althought it has the lamp that is not good for minies at all. And making these photos I was just crawling around the office to get poppet's perspective!;)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much, Eva! Happy you like the idea!:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much, Nina! There is still a lot to do in the office - guess I need holidays to go back to serious work here;)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Margaret! Actually I sent some of these photos to the Poppets on Tour Group on Flickr, so if we, the Poppet that Lives in Poland and me, are lucky enough then maybe he will see himself in a book one day;)

Eres una artista en las miniaturas, pero en fotografia eres una gran maestra, te quedan para hacer ilustraciones de cuentos, que maravilla.
Me encanta como te esta quedando la oficina de Sanpe y esa pequeñisima maravilla roja, muy interesada en todo lo que ve.
besitos ascension

Everything excellent, Ewa!!
Snape's office, photography (fab!!), the poppet (love him, a neat way to show off your minis) and thanks for the reference!

Sans! said...

Some truly good pictures , Ewa. Whatever you were doing with these pics, you were doing them right! I love how all your little bottles are now filled. I can see the tiny influence from the Chinese medicinal hall. Really terrific! So good to have a little tour round blogland after so many days to see how far everyone's progressed with their project. All looking so good!

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Ladies! You all are wayyyy too kind for me! So happy you like my photos!:)
Sans, glad you're back! Hope to see new Indian creations soon!;)

Michelle's Mad World said...

This is wonderful Ewa! I love the poppet and his tour and your potion's room is soo filled! :o)))

I spied some brown earthenware bottles that I bought from DHE (I guess yours are from there too?).

Have you decided what you will be working on next?

Michelle xxx

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Michelle! You are a perfect spy!;) Yes, I bought them there too!:)
Actually the office is not so filled as it looks so I have a lot to do there:) There are a few pieces of furniture to prepare and shelves to fill and lights...
Next? Hmm I have two or three ideas on my mind and they are not witches at all but I need to remember about the space for buildings as I have not really much of it :(

Glenda said...

Ewa - your little Polish poppet will have two cousins in New Zealand soon ;)

The Old Maid said...

Oh! Wow! How cool is that! Happy to hear that! Hope you will show them touring on New Zealand and your minies!!:D

Daydreamer said...

What a beautiful poppet! I LOVE the pictures looking from his perspective! Your Snape's office is looking so real I love the way the light comes in the window on the poppet's face....what a lovely idea! I'm so glad you found him and shared his tour with us....beautiful!

Glenda said...

Yes! Have you seen the French film 'Amelie'? where she sends a garden gnome around the world and he has his picture taken in famous places?
Like that!!
:D

The Old Maid said...

Oh, yes Glenda!I remember! That's a perfect idea!:D Can't wait to see tem then!!!

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Daydreamer!:) Happy you like it!!!
