Inspirations. Inspiracje.


For the last few days we had a beautiful weather. So we did a lot of walking. Yes, of course I had my camera with me and took some pictures not only of beautiful nature.

Here is an example of something really rusty. Yes, I know we have an Expert of rustying miniatures on blogland .... but maybe she'll like it too?;)




I must have mentioned once that I adore one house in Gdynia. Actually now it looks more like ruined one but my love for it is just growing the more destroyed it is.;)
Luckily for this house recently something is going on, so maybe one day I will show you pictures of renovated house... In the meantime here are some pictures of Villa God Blesses.







And here are some pictures of Autumn's beauty.:)









Hope you'll enjoy the photos.:)


Parę ostatnich dni na wybrzeżu mobilizowało do spacerów przy pięknej pogodzie, ja oczywiście na spacery zabieram aparat.:) Dziś parę fotek, nie tylko pięknej przyrody. Na początek coś szalenie zardzewiałego. Myślę, że nawet bloglandowy ekspert od pordzewiałych miniatur chętnie obejrzy tę skrzynkę.;)
Chyba musiałam kiedyś wspomnieć, że darzę ciepłym uczuciem pewien dom w moim mieście. No dobrze, teraz to już bardziej ruina, ale moja miłość rośnie wraz ze stanem zniszczenia tego budynku. Na szczęście ostatnio zaczyna się tam dziać coś pozytywnego, więc może któregoś dnia pokażę Wam fotki odnowionej willi Szczęść Boże. Na koniec parę fotek pięknej jesieni.Mam nadzieję, że się Wam zdjęcia spodobają.:)

Ilona said...

Wow, what gorgeous pictures, beautiful autumn colors, love it! I like the pioctures of the rusty cabinet, yep Susan is the expert :D!! Can I use the picture too, Ewa? The old spooky house is gorgeous, to be rebuild as a mini mansion in glamor style!!
Hugs, Ilona

Lovely pictures... don't you have more??? ;O) I especially loved the photos of the neglected villa... how stunning that it is surrounded from big, modern houses. This reminds of the description of Ebenezer Scrooge's house in Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" saying it would look like the house has been forgotten while playing hide and seek with other houses when it was young...

Great photos Ewa, love that old building, I would love to restore an old building like that, with a big wallet to really go crazy.

Jakie cieplutkie piękne fotki!
a dom rzeczywiście z duszą, niesamowity. Ja kiedyś też wypatrzyłam u siebie dom w bardzo podobnym stanie, ma coś takiego w sobie, że mogłabym się do niego od razu wprowadzić...po prostu miłość od pierwszego wejrzenia;)
dlaczego nie można po prostu "zaadoptować" domu którego nikt nie kocha?
dlaczego to nie może być takie proste:)

The Old Maid said...

Hi Ilona, of course you can! I am sure I will see a beautiful miniature based on it, on your blog soon!:) Can't wait!
Thank you!
Hugs

The Old Maid said...

In fact I have,Brigit,lol!
The story of this building is interesting. It was taken away from the owners during socialist times and after we've become free again Gdynia's City Council together with my ex-company decided it would be expanded and City Council wanted a part of it to be a palace of weddings. But back then the owners reminded of villa and wanted it either back or sell to the city. Of course the city didn't have money so the house stands and deteriorates ever since. I guess last year we've first read in newspapers the owners try to get some grants to safe the building. So maybe it will look good one day. The holes you can see in it's walls are from the hitting bullets during WWII.:)
Hugs and kisses

The Old Maid said...

Haha Margaret! This is something I always keep in mind! If I only won on lottery! lol!
Thank you, happy you like them!
Hugs

The Old Maid said...

Echhh, myślę, że wielu byłoby chętnych na takie budynki.:) No tylko trzeba by było najpierw wygrać niezłą sumkę w totolotka.:) Ale wiesz Magdo, że u nas jest taki dworek, który niedawno został odbudowany przez jakiegoś prawnika? No tylko że teraz jest albo do wynajęcia albo do kupienia więc choć odnowiony też stoi pusty...
Cieszę się, że fotki się podobają :)

Giac said...

Hello Ewa,

Big hug,
Giac

The Old Maid said...

Thank you very much Giac! Happy you like them.:) Yes, I too hope to see some good changes there soon.:)
Big hugs!

Hi Ewa! I can't believe I didn't leave a reply here already :(...!
I LOVE the old house... It would make a Fabulous model for a Dollhouse! It is always sad when Beautiful old buildings are left to decay... I hope the funds are found in time to save it!
And your foliage is looking a lot like our foliage... we are having some beautiful colors right now.... but too much gray sky and rain on top of it!
The rusty bin I will leave for Sans! (I prefer to paint the things in their brilliant colors.... Before they are rusted!) LOL!
As usual you photos are so interesting to see!

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Betsy!
Yes Autumn is beautiful where we live isn't it.:) The days are becoming more and more grey over here too.

John said...

I hope somebody steps in and SAVES THE VILLA! It is such a marvelous relic it would indeed be a crying shame if it were lost! And I really enjoy the music you have playing in the background, Ewa, --violins in a minor key go so perfectly well with a ramshackle villa-- don't you agree?

The Old Maid said...

Thank you John! Yes, you're right abou music.:)Happy you like them both.:)
