The simplest gutter. Najprostsza rynna.

Just take a sipper of colour of your choice, cut to the size  and shape you like and paint. ;)

Can it be simpler? ;) Mine of course is a bit "lost and old" ;)

Then I thought of cobweb. But I am not that patient  to "weave" it... Guess I could leave it like it is and wait.  Who knows? Maybe in time it would get a cobweb? ;)  As you can see all I achieve is some hanging "dust". ;)


Wystarczy wziąć słomkę o ulubionym kolorze, przyciąć do odpowiednich: wielkości i kształtu, i pomalować. Czy może być coś prostszego? ;)

Potem zachciało mi się pajęczyny w oknie, ale ni jak nie potrafiłam wymyśleć jak ją zrobić. Zresztą i tak nie starczyłoby mi cierpliwości. Mogłabym zostawić wszystko na jakiś czas i może kiedyś doczekałabym się prawdziwej pajęczyny? A tak wyszły mi wiszące"koty kurzu".;)

I wouldn't be surprised if one smart spider would drop by and think "This beautiful window needs a stunning cobweb"... Fantastic work!

Hello Ewa,
Great trick and it looks beautiful and convincing.
Big hug,

Haha, Ewa, I have cobwebs like that in my house! Seriously... just a little "grayer" with the dirt and dust in them!!! (And I will have to get a photograph of the REAL spiderweb that has been built in my Folly this Summer! (I think I choose to make minis before I choose to clean my house...! :))
This is such a detailed little scene.... I am wondering what the Story is? You are making so many special "abandoned" pieces.... What is the story???

Eliana said...

Wow, Ewa! It's getting so gorgeous!

aszeko said...

Proste i efektowne. A stare pajęczyny pokryte kurzem właśnie tak wyglądają :)

Josje said...

At the moment the spiders are building cobwebs all over my house. I can spare you some if you like ;-)

Great to be working with simple things and make something nice out of it!

It looks like it belongs there. Great work!
Hugs, Drora

Ilona said...

Hi Ewa! The window and wall are fantastic work, I love the idea of the cobweb and just like Birgit and Betsy said: just wait and see, the spiders will find it sooner or later ;)! But I don't hope that will happen, so we still can see the beauty of your scene, before it will disappear under the cobwebs ;)!
Hugs, Ilona

otterine said...

It looks wonderful, but the real thing just might show up! :D It did for me:

De said...

It looks great! One way I've made cobwebs is to stretch loosely woven gauze. If you keep gently stretching and pulling you get some very convincing cobwebs.

Ewalina, you don't have to weave any cobwebs, put your scene in a corner for some time and it will happen. My tribal house has real spiderwebs so if your corner doesn't work, use mine ;p

I can't really see what the 1st pic is. Is it a straw?

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Brigit! In this project I would love one little, teeny tiny spider to "produce" it's web there.;)
Hugs and kisses

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Giac!
Big hug

The Old Maid said...

:) I understand you well Betsy about cleaning, lol!
Photo yes please!
Oh, I am not a great story teller as you and Sans or Brigit are. So I hope the photos will tell you more.;)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Eliana!

The Old Maid said...

Dzięki serdeczne aszeko!!

The Old Maid said...

Josje, pack one little spider into an envelope for me and send it to Poland. ;) ;) ;)
Thank you!

The Old Maid said...

Thnak you so much Drora!

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Ilona! Now that would be a view if seen through real cobwebs... ;);)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you so much Brae! At the moment I can't see your blog at all :( :( But I will try later on to see these webs.:)

The Old Maid said...

Thank you for the great tip De! I will definately try it one day!

The Old Maid said...

Yes it is a straw, dear Sam - I know it is an awful photo and I was thinking if I should post it at all but finally did it.;)
Oh, this is a good idea! I will send it to you and you will send it back with the real spider web! :P :P
Hugs and kisses from much too hot Poland

Fajnie wygląda, pajęczyna jak trzeba, zakurzona. Tak mi przyszło do głowy że można spróbować ją zrobić z ciągnących się niteczek kleju, nie wiem jakiego bo nie próbowałam, ale może jakaś kropelka?...
