A pipe. Fajka.

First of all: I am not a smoker. I am just a fan of miniatures that sees sometimes things different than "normal" people. Just like all(or most) of us.;) Sooooo guess what I thought about when I saw this pipe?



Ohh... still in the shop I noticed I can brake it down into parts. Seven parts to be exact.



I just wonder how many ideas you can have with so pretty shapes? Pots, vases, goblets i.e.?



O.K., let's face it: one has a hole and the other one kind of sieve inside...



...still you can put them together to have different shapes. Like that..



..or that...



...or even that.



Now this is the best! You only need to screw these two parts together to have this goblet...




...or a leg.....



...of a table (if you add one part of the pipe more).



P'Nilli's table for example.;)



I have one more of these "table tops" so I thought of making two the same tables for her. Unfortunately when I went back to the shop, all the pipes were gone...
I wonder if you have any other ideas how to use a pipe?;D

Ohhhh one more but Important thing: I have just noticed the number of my dear dear Followers has increased to 502!!!
I am soooo in shock and sooo gratefull you follow my modest blog!!!!
I will think of a thank-you-give-away soon.:)Stay tuned!:D





Nie jestem palaczem. Jestem fanem miniatur, który czasem postrzega przedmioty inaczej niż "normalni" ludzie. Z pewnoscią jak wszyscy tutaj, albo prawie wszyscy.;) No to możecie sobie wyobrazić co pomyslałam widząc tą fajkę w sklepie? A jeszcze jak zauważyłam, że da się ją rozkręcić na 7 częsci...;)Ileż możliwosci! Doniczki? Wazony? Puchary? OK jedna ma dziurę z boku, a druga cos na kształt sita w srodku. Ale można je połączyć w różne kombinacje.:) Najlepsza jest ostatnia, bo nawet nie trzeba kleić. Wystarczy je razem skręcić i mamy puchar, albo nogę, od stołu oczywiscie. Pomyslałam, że po dodaniu kolejnej częsci stół jest na tyle wysoki, żeby P'Nilli mogła przy nim usiąsć, a że mam 2 takie "blaty" to postanowiłam kupić drugą fajkę. No tak, tylko, że gdy wróciłam do sklepu, okazało się, że wszystkie zostały wyprzedane! Ciekawa jestem Waszych pomysłów na częsci fajki.:)

No i najważniejsze, jakims cudem moich drogich Obserwatorów nagle jest ponad 500 Osób! Czyste szaleństwo jak na taki skromny blog! W każdym razie intensywnie myslę o jakims podziękowaniu. Mam nadzieję, że nastąpi to wkrótce.;)

That's one amazing pipe but more amazing is that imagination of yours :).

Congratz on 502 ! :):)

The Old Maid said...

Hey Sans! Not sleeping yet?;D My imagination isn't as half as good as yours!:D
Thank you!!!

Maja said...

Rzeczywiście cudowna ta fajka. Najbardziej podoba mi się pomysł z donicami na jakieś formowane bukszpany czy inne cyprysy. Choć stolik też niczego sobie :) Świetnie sobie to wymyśliłaś!

Maja said...

Już widzę te donice z formowanymi bukszpanami czy innymi cyprysami. Noga od stołu też niczego sobie :) Gratuluję pomysłu!

What a find! Who would have believed a pipe could be that useful and beautiful... so many fantastic ways to use it, it's a pity they were all sold. Maybe they'll receive some more... ;O) Congrats on cracking 500 followers - I'm so very happy to be one of them!

Hugs
Birgit

I like this table too, so if I don't find another pipe, P'Nilli will still have but only one table.;D

Kikka said...

Wonderful pieces from the pipe!

The Old Maid said...

Thanks a lot Kikka!!

Jaki fajny pomysł miałaś z tą fajką, nie wiedziałam, że "to" się rozkręca na części,
"koronkowe" blaty pasują do nich idealnie!

Drora's minimundo said...

Only you can see what possibilities a pipe can have and what wonderful uses can come out of it. No wonder your list of follwers keeps growing. Congratulations for over 500!
Hugs, Drora

The Old Maid said...

Ja też nie wiedziałam. Ale ona taka trochę "luźna" w ręku była.;) Zresztą nie każda dała się rozkręcić na części tak ładnie jak ta.
Bardzo się cieszę, że pomysł z "koronkowym" blatem Ci się podoba, Magdo.:) Dzięki!

Eva said...

You can uses every of these pipe part as a flower vases too.

Ilona said...

Hi Ewa! Nice purchase with many possibilities, for instance vases, but you can also use them for modern lampshades, I think! The tables are gorgeous, I love the idea.
Hugs, Ilona

Daydreamer said...

Oh, I'm So late here, Ewa! (I first read it at work and didn't get back to comment til now!)
I LOVE the possibilities you have with this pipe! The turnings are Beautiful! Too bad you can't get more! I always collect metal bits that look promising because I know I can't make things from metal the way I can from wood or cloth! Maybe someday I will learn to make metal pieces... but til then I am like you... always looking for the likely pieces! These ones are Very Fine!

maria l. said...

Very good ideas

The Old Maid said...

I guess we all collect many things just in case, Betsy.;D Thank you very much!

The Old Maid said...

Thank you, Maria I.!
