A bit of spring during long, white winter. Troszkę wiosny białą zimą.

As you all know by now I am in love with Sans! creativity, skills and ideas. So it is not a surprise that I was absolutely fascinated by Suitcase’s Gardens she showed not so long ago. Of course I had to comment on her post about them and I think she must have liked my comment because….. just look what I found in my mail exactly on St. Valentine’s Day!

Isn’t it the most beautiful and fascinating little garden you could ever see? I love the rustic suitcase, delicate flowers and twig, green moss, rusty can and shovel! The details are incredible!


Oh, no! Who dares to touch my gift?????? Leave it alone whoever you are! Go away!

After a long discussion P’Nilli has managed to convince me that she suits the best to it and she would take the best care of this precious little garden. She had to sworn it!;)

Thank you with all of our (P’Nilli’s and mine) hearts for your generosity and friendship, dearest Sans! We are proud to have one of your very unique Gardens home! We will take care of it and one day it will become a part of P’Nilli’s house!

And a very very special thank you goes to Maria Ireland who was so kind to give me this beautiful Award!

As usual I want to give this award to all and everyone of you! Thank you all!

Jak już zapewne wszyscy wiecie jestem zakochana w pomysłach i zdolnościach Sans. Nic więc dziwnego, że jej walizkowe ogrody całkowicie mnie zafascynowały. Oczywiście musiałam napisać komentarz pod jej postem o ogrodach i najwyraźniej ten komentarz musiał się jej spodobać bo … sami zobaczcie co znalazłam w skrzynce dokładnie na Walentynki! Prawda, że to najpiękniejszy i najbardziej fascynujący malutki ogródek jaki kiedykolwiek widzieliście? Kocham tam dosłownie wszystko: zardzewiałą walizkę, puszkę i łopatkę, delikatne kwiatki i gałązki, zielony mech… detale są niesamowite! Niestety nie nacieszyłam się nim długo, bo całkowicie zaanektowała go P’Nilli. Odbyłyśmy bardzo długą rozmowę, podczas której udało się jej w końcu przekonać mnie, że właśnie ona najlepiej pasuje do ogródka i najlepiej się nim zaopiekuje. Musiała mi to przysiąc!;) Obie bardzo dziękujemy Sans z całego serca za prześliczny prezent, który kiedyś na pewno stanie się częścią P’Nilli’owego domu.:)
Na koniec specjalne podziękowania dla Marii Ireland która odznaczyła mnie tą piękną nagrodą. Jak zwykle chcę nią odznaczyć również Was wszystkich!

*gasp* Ewa!!! What a treasure you received!!! Every word you said about Sans! could be underlined by me if I would find the bottom or tool for it (THAT would be an improvement, being able to underline - instead of this I have to prove I'm not a robot *sigh*) I really think you can trust P'Nilli to be the perfect caretaker of this miracle garden... ;O)

Have a great weekend!
Birgit

Maria Ireland said...

AGNIESZKA - NIUŃKA said...

Gratuluję wygranej! Twój blog jest w 100% Fantabuloso. A jeśli chodzi o walizeczkę, to faktycznie jest śliczniusia. Przyjemnie na nią popatrzeć, tym bardziej, że mi również bardzo podobają się prace Sans a i za ogrodem zaczynam tęsknić. Uściski!

WeeLittleWest / Kathy Olaf-Obrenski said...

Beautiful!! Beautiful gift!

The Old Maid said...

LOL, Brigit(yes I can't stand proving I am not robot either!LOL)!
Thank you! Oh, I do hope I can trust her, after all she is a gnome.;)
Hugs

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Ilona!
No, I didn't make P'Nilli. She is my precious win of Rose's give-away. She arrived to me in January so she is quite new here too.:D
Have a great weekend too!
Hugs

The Old Maid said...

Dzięki serdecznie Niuńka! A no tak, bo Ty przecież jesteś szczęśliwą posiadaczką ogrodu! Nie to co ja: donice albo walizki.;D
Uściski

The Old Maid said...

Oh, yes it is, Kathy!!!!
Hugs to TKO!!

Gratuluję serdecznie wyróżnienia!
ogródeczek jest tak piękny, delikatny i wiosenny...

The Old Maid said...

Dzięki Ewka! Prawda, że cudnej urody? I pomyśleć, że wszystko zaczęło się od plastykowego pudełka..:D Cieszę, się, że fotki też Ci się podobają.:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much, dear Drora! I love it too!
Hugs

The Old Maid said...

Dziękuję serdecznie Magdo!:) Cieszę się, że się Ci podoba!:)

Arestrea said...

Tak, zdecydowanie jest to "najpiękniejszy i najbardziej fascynujący malutki ogródek jaki kiedykolwiek widziałam"XD
A P'Nilli wygląda w zestawieniu z nim obłędnie:)
Uścieski!

The Old Maid said...

Serdeczne dzięki Arestreo!! Bardzo się cieszę, że Ci się podoba!!
Uściski:)

Kaya said...

Piękny prezent, pomysł na mini ogródek w walizce świetny. Już myślałam, że to jest Twoje dzieło. Mam taką samą łopatkę, tylko nie tak ładnie postarzoną. Ciekawa jestem jak się robi taki efekt na metalowych drobiazgach. Gdzieś w necie widziałam nawet zdjęcia (miał to być "tutorial", ale bez podania czym i jak, czyli to nie był tutorial. Myślę, że można to uzyskać farbami, bez kwasów i innych niebezpiecznych substancji.

Wellajoy said...

Dear Ewa, I shared your joy, fun and appreciation of San's creation, P'Nilli and the awards you received!! It has been lot's of inspirations reading your blogs ~~ .... Cheers :)

Fabiola said...

Beautiful gift. Congratulations on your award.
Bye Faby

Daydreamer said...

Ah, Ewa, P'Nilli is JUST the Right one to take care of that little Garden Treasure! She Looks SO Happy to have it too! I am SO glad you got this little garden! I can't wait to see these Gardens in real... (When Mine gets here!!!)... Lucky us!!! :):):)

Eliana said...

Sans is a wonderful friend! Congrats for receiving the garden, it's really amazing, like everything that Sans makes.
Congrats for the award too. ;D

Jollie said...

My last post disappeared! seems to be a problem with blogger it is not the first time these last days :(
What a wonderful gift you have got from Sans! :-)
And I also tried to comment on your beautiful bathroom (have to see if that disappeared too ;-)

Hugs Jollie

The Old Maid said...

Dzięki Kayu! No nie aż takich pomysłów to ja nie mam. Jeszcze.;)
Z tego co wiem, Sans poprostu maluje swoje miniatury tak długo aż osiągnie zamierzony efekt.Łopatka ma na pewno na sobie brązy i czerwienie a trzonek błekit z zielenią i znowy brązami i czerwieniami.:) Chyba najlepiej podpatrzeć prawdziwe zardzewienia i spróbować je odtworzyć.:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, Faby!
Hugs

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much, Wellajoy!
And so is your blog for me!:)

Thank you so much! Good to read you here again!
Hugs

Sans! said...

WOW! My hands are shaking a little reading all the wonderful comments everyone has left for this post :).

Thank you Ewa, for the beautiful pictures and this amazingly heart warming post. I am overwhelmed and very touched. It is such a small gesture on my part (although I take a while to think about what I want to make so the suitcase gardens are coming along very slowly, lol).

I am especially flattered, proud, honoured that someone as beautiful and clever and boho-chic as P'Nilli will want to adopt the garden. You are right, she is perfect! I must have dreamt her because the flowers are of the colour for her hair and that spade matches her gloves. If I am a doll, I want to be her :).

Can you ask P'Nilli to fluff the flowers a little? They look a little squashed from all the air travel. Ok..I don't mean to be a backseat gardener but....:)

Will see if I can post my version, pre travel for you this evening .

Thank you, my dear friend. I felt like I have hit the jackpot with this creation ! :)

The Old Maid said...

P'Nilli is proud to be accepted by you as the Suitcase Garden Gardener, Sans! We will try to fluff the flowers but we are a bit affraid not to spoil them by touching, they are soooooo pretty and delicate! Can't stop admiring them and the Garden!
You are right there is a colour match between your(mine LOL) garden and P'Nilli!
Thank you once again for this fabulous Valentine's Day Gift!!!

Flor said...

¡Que regalos mas bellos te ha dado Sans!! Ella es toda una artista y hace cosas preciosas!!! Al igual que tu

Un gran abrazo

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, querida Flor! And so are you!!!;D

Dziękuję The Old Maid za odpowiedź na moje pytanie dotyczące łopatki. Przyjdzie czas i się pobawię farbami.
