Great potion bottles

It's been a while, I know, and I haven't got three of my parcels still. I guess they are gone for good by now. Still hope they will be at least returned to the Senders. Without them I cannot finish filling the shelves....:(
So as you may guess I was very very happy to see my order from Lorraine arrived safe and sound!:)Here they are absolutely beautiful little bottles for the office.


The colours are a bit yellow on the photos as I wanted to show the Violet colour of two bottles but somehow my camera doesn't "see" the Violet and "loves" the Blue.;)
Love little skull and love the shape of Lorraine's gift - the square bottle.
Thank you soooooo much Lorraine they are PERFECT little bottles with size, colours and everything else!!!
Do drop and see Lorraine's blog as she's got absolutely wonderful wands and the pumpkin ones are just stunning!

Niestety 3 z moich zamówień nie dotarły do dzis, co prawdopodobnie oznacza, że już do mnie nie dotrą.:( Mam jeszcze nadzieję, że chociaż wrócą do adresatów. Bez tych zamówień nie mogę zakończyć wypełniania półek i stoję z zakończeniem severusowego projektu. Nic więc dziwnego, że ucieszyła mnie przesyłka od Lorraine, a w niej moje specjalnie zamówione mini buteleczki do gabinetu. Zdjęcia są troszkę podkręcone, bo mój aparat nie chce pokazać fioletowego koloru dwóch z buteleczek, tylko ciągle twierdzi, że one są niebieskie! ;) Bardzo się ucieszyłam z kwadratowej butelki, która była prezentem od Lorraine, a ta malutka czaszeczka jest...słodka ;) Koniecznie wpadnijcie na bloga Lorraine, ma tam swietne różdżki, a te "dyniowe" są po prostu fantastyczne!

Ewa,

Lorraine's work is amazing isn't it? I have a few of her bottles too and they are superb!

It's sooo awful you have 3 parcels not arrived! One outstanding is bad enough, is the postal service always this bad in Poland? :o(( It would put me off buying, but if you can't buy items in your own country then you have little choice.

I hope they all turn up VERY soon!

Lovely bottles! I am admiring Lorraine's work alot these days.

I, too, have had 2 things go missing in the mail lately and it does really upset me. One was easily replaced by the vendor and was a small trifle but the other was a lovely handmade piece which the artist has graciously offered to re-make. But considering the cost of postage these days, you'd think the Post Office would take a little more care in assuring things got where they are going...sigh.

Fantastic bottles... They look like ceramic. Hopefully your other packages aren't totally lost and will sj´how up one day. I'm also missing a parcel that I won a while ago :0(

Victoria said...

The bottles are perfect, I'd be very excited to receive such package:)
I have the same problem with the post, still waiting for the furniture hardware from US, it was returned to the sender, and now I gave it another try, hope we both be lucky to get all we need!:)

Michelle, as far as postal service goes, it happened the first time - years ago I had two missing parcels but they were returned to the senders really fast - and all the parcels were sent more or less at the same time. From what I know our postman was on holidays but I don't know if it matters or not. Maybe it is customs service that didn't let all the small jars and bottles arrived ;)I don't know. The only thing I know is that I will have to ask everyone to send anything by registered mail from now on...:(

The Old Maid said...

Susane, this is what gets me mad - you pay for it and they seem not to care at all....Glad you will get yours soon!

The Old Maid said...

Annie I hope your parcel will arrive soon!

The Old Maid said...

Victoria, I hope your parcel will arrive soon! At least it was returned to the sender so you know were it is:)

I love those little bottles, especially the one with the skull!
Wow, so many postal horror stories. It's upsetting!! :(

The Old Maid said...

And you wanted a scary stories Kristy ;D It is unfortunately.

PAKY said...

fantastic, I like bottles very much, specially the one with skull, is great! and now is time to include in a halloween or witch scene! greetings

Sans! said...

These are really great bottles. I love the texture, reminds me of the old medicine bottles, heavy, thick and sturdy. That girl is really great :).

It is so good to see you post again, Ewa :):). I just bought one of those fairy lights with 100 bulbs. Thanks to Kristy's tip, I am going to try to make small bottles with them. You an try that? They should fill up the shelf quickly? Although these may not be fantastical enough.

Glenda said...

Lorraine's bottles are lovely - she make such wonderful things, and the quality is excellent!!

So disappointing about your missing parcels :(

Lorraine Escapita said...

So so glad my package made it through :). I bet having to get everything via registered mail is going to cost some, I feel sad for you and for your packages. Hopefully they turn up.

Whittaker's Miniatures said...

Beautifully made bottles I have several and love them, Lorraine is so talented and her work very addictive! Hope your parcels turn up, there is nothing worse than waiting and worrying for the buyer and the seller too! Kate xx

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Ladies for your so nice comments!:)
Sans I completely forgot about Kristy's idea! Thanks for reminding! Will surely try this!:)Can't wait to see yours;)

Christel Hutson said...

Good Morning Ewa, great little bottles! Her work is excellent! It is a shame things disapear into the black hole...I have some horror stories too with the PO...buying insurance through the PO virtually does NO good, they really don't want to give a refund on a broken item. The buyer has to take the original box, ALL the original packing material, the broken item...and then convince the PO that somehow it was not broken when the seller packaged it! gggrrrrr very frustrating for both the buyer, and the seller. anywho..love the minis, hope you others arrive safe and sound soon. Have a great day, Christel

Zofianna said...

Bardzo Ci współczuję tego, że paczki do Ciebie nie dotarły... Ale wiesz, kiedys paczka z Kanady szła do mnie jakieś pół roku. Więc wszystko jest możliwe - może jeszcze pewnego dnia do Ciebie dotrą (trzymam kciuki!).
A buteleczki są przepiękne - te malutkie czaszeczki to prawdziwy majstersztyk, ale moją uwagę przykuły również bardzo realistyczne korki:-)
Pozdrawiam,
Zofianna

May said...

Preciosas botellas. Lo mejor es certificar rl paquete, sale algo más caro, pero merece la pena.
Besitos, May

The Old Maid said...

Christel, I am so sorry to read your beautiful miniatures could be broken during transport! Hope the PO will refund the costs. I saw once a woman who was opening the parcel at the post-office right after she got it from the PO clerk there and because the parcel already was damaged she refused to pick it up.

The Old Maid said...

Dziękuję Ci bardzo Zofianno! Fajnie by było gdyby nawet za 4 miesiące dotarły, ale jakoś nie bardzo w to wierzę :( W każdym razie, jeśli dotrą to na pewno o tym Was tutaj powiadomię ;)

The Old Maid said...

Muchas gracias May!!
