A very special Chair. ;) Bardzo wyjątkowe krzesło.;)

Don't know what I did to deserve her trust but she was kind enough to have faith in my skills I had (and still have) no idea about.

This beautiful Lady's first request was a coplete surprise, joy and challenge for me.

And so was the second.

Do you know already who I am writing about? Yup! Our dear dear Sans!:)

At first I thought: "Nooooooooo way!! I can't make something THAT complicated!" I even asked her for the photos of less complicated examples. After all I have never seen this shape on my own eyes.

Still this little strange voice in my head was stubbornly saying "Give it a try! You will be sorry if you don't!". Of course it was adding I can't dissapoint the only Person who has such a big amount of faith in me! So I gave it a try.

Although I sent the photos of it to Sans and she was kind enough to be a bit surprised I made it so quick and she said she liked it.;D
Still I couldn't stop thinking "It is just not good enough and I can't send anything to my dear Friend if I am not satysified with it too!" Why you ask? Because of it:

Yup, the arms are not straight!
So not saying to Sans a word, I made another one. It is a bit different than the first one and the arms are straight(er).;)

And it is white. I decided not to even try to age it as Sans is just an Expert of it. So I left this work to her.;)
The chair is safely at her home now and she wrote she liked it.
Which made me a very happy person.:)

Nie wiem czym zasłużyłam sobie na jej zaufanie, ale jest tak miłą osobą, która ma wiarę w moje zdolnosci, o których nawet ja nie mam pojęcia. Jej pierwsza prosba była zaskoczeniem, radoscią i wyzwaniem dla mnie. Taka też była jej druga prosba.Kogo? Sans oczywiscie! W pierwszym momencie pomyslałam, że to absolutnie niemożliwe, żebym cos takiego zbudowała, nawet poprosiłam ją o fotki mniej skomplkowanego modelu.W końcu w życiu nie widziałam czegos takiego na własne oczy. Ale gdzies tam we mnie tkwiło przekonanie, że muszę spróbować, bo jesli nie,to będę sama tego żałować.No i nie mogłam zawiesć Sans!Spróbowałam, wysłałam fotki. Sans była zachwycona, ale ja, nie. Dlaczego? Bo ramiona nie wyszły tak prosto jak powinny. Nie mogłam wysłać jej czegos co mnie się nie podobało. Nie mówiąc jej więc nic zrobiłam jeszcze jedno krzesło. Tym razem wyszło nieco inne ale z prostszymi ramionami. Nie postarzyłam go, bo doszłam do wniosku, że specjalistką od postarzania jest Sans własnie i ona zrobi to najlepiej. Krzesło jest już u Sans i jej się podoba. A to dla mnie najlepsza nagroda.:)

Is your computer all right? Last time when I couldn't comment it was my computer that was broken and I also had to upload new versions of some programms. Hope your problems will be gone soon!

Maria Ireland said...

Wow I love both of your chairs. I am sure Sans is very happy with hers. I love how you aged the other one you done a fantastic job on it.You are very talented.
Hugs Maria

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much, Maria! I hope she is.;D I liked ageing but I know Sans's got her own unique style so she's going to do it much much better than me.:)

Ilona said...

Hi Ewa! I like both chairs :D!! If I had to choose....I could not!
Hugs, Ilona

The Old Maid said...

Hhahahaha Ilona! I had the same problem today about your give-away! LOL!

Plushpussycat said...

You did a beautiful job! Congratulations! You are one talented miniaturist, Ewa! xo Jennifer

BiWuBär said...

Being the great artist and wonderful lady she is Sans! of course knew exactly why she asked you to fulfil her wish. Your work is breathtaking, I love both versions, but I agree - the unfinished one is perfect for Sans! and her aging skills, being the Queen of Rust... ;O) Great job, dear - and of that little voice of yours!


Margaret said...

You have done a great job Ewa, the chair and stool look fantastic.

WeeLittleWest / Kathy Olaf-Obrenski said...

Hey cousin, listen to your inner self more often. Kathy really likes the first two chairs. Did you make all of the chairs too?

Miniature Treasures said...

I love it, and you did a wonderful job in making it :)

Ascension said...

Estoy segura que esta encantada con tu fantastico trabajo.
A mi me parece que te ha quedado genial.
besitos ascension

Daydreamer said...

OOOH, Gorgeous chairs, Ewa!
I am not surprised at your skills! You have been showing evidence of them ever since I have been looking at your blog!!! :):)
I am always amazed when I make something for the Second time.... how much Better it looks and how much Easier it is to do! By now, I should know that the first effort is for practice..... but have I learned this? No, I still want my first try to be Perfect!
(Your first chair is just as beautiful... but it is uneven because it has been "loved" so much and used so much it has required repairing over the many years of its life!!) There is Always a story in the worn and crooked things...!

Sans! said...

You are not being accurate here, my dear Ewalina! I LOVE my chairs very very much , I don't just like them, dearie :).

I hope everyone who reads this post finally appreciate my good eye..heh heh. I can spot a talent a few thousands miles away :).

You have never disappointed, dearie. My new project will have so many of your wonderful creations :). Do you realise how you are always a part of my project? :) So so so happy we met...

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Jennifer! Happy you like them!

The Old Maid said...

The Old Maid said...

Dear Betsy, thank you so much for your kind words. You are right about making something for the second time. But I have to admit I am juts like you: always use the first one in my projects.;) But I think because it was made for Sans I wanted it to be better.:) I am pretty sure Sans will choose the chair she likes more to her new project.;)

The Old Maid said...

I am sooooo happy about that too Sans!
And happy you LIKE them.LOL!

I think you really are the first person ever to believe my weak talents.;)

Both chairs are very well made, I would have been pleased to have made them! Slight imperfections can add character to things, so I wouldn't worry about arms on the first chair, I like them both very much!

miniature patio chair said...

You know, the aging on that chair is SO realistic, I don't think I want to sit in it. It looks like it's been left out in the rain and started to grow fungus! Great job.

This is my miniature

The Old Maid said...

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