Swaps. Wymianki.

I know I am not posting often lately but I try to keep up with your posts and comment them more or less regularly. ;)

So today I decided to catch up with everything and will post a few post one after another. ;) The first today's post is about swaps with blog friends I owe them so much!

First is a swap with my dear Friend, Betsy. I always admire her paintings and to be honest since she showed her icons she was generously giving away sometime ago I wanted one for myself very, very much.
So once she said she liked my cradle I asked her if she would like a little swap.
 And here is what I got. Quite a lot!
 


See this special postcard painted by Betsy? How did she know I love Greek islands??  She added pretty fabrics - I used a part of one in Tsuki's Nook already.



And finally the pretty pretty icon! I am sorry I couldn't photograph it  well enough so that you could see it's pure beauty!
Can you imagine to paint such small icon? I can't. So I am so happy to have it home!
Thank you very very much dear Betsy for sharing your stunning talent with me!

Do you remember the green armchair I bought sometime ago? I had written I would give it away as it was too big for my scale.
I am happy to say it is living in Sweden now with a talented and sweet Polish blog Friend who lives in Sweden now.:) Th armchair suits her doll nice and this is what I've got from Ewa.



She even went shopping to Crazy 4 Minis shop over there!:) Her pretty notebooks and little latern you could see in Tsuki's Nook too!
Ewcia serdeczne dzięki! Wszystko na pewno się przyda!:)

Wiem, że ostatnio bardzo rzadko coś piszę, ale staram się być z Waszymi blogami i komentować na bieżąco. Żeby nadrobić tą przerwę postanowiłam zamieścić parę wpisów jeden po drugim. ;) Pierwszy jest o wymiankach, strasznie długo czekały żeby o nich napisać.

Najpierw wymianka z Betsy. Zawsze podobał mi się jej styl malowania, a od kiedy postanowiła oddać swoje miniaturowe ikony w rozdawajce, bardzo bardzo chciałam mieć taką choćby jedną dla siebie. I udało się, bo Betsy bardzo spodobała się moja kołyska.;) Oprócz pięknej ikony dostałam też cudną "grecką" kartkę malowaną przez Betsy i tekstylia. Jeden z nich wykorzystałam w Kryjówce Królika. ;)

Pamiętacie zielony obrotowy fotel? Od razuna pisałam, że jak ktoś jest chętny to oddam, bo dla mnie za duży. ;) Mieszka sobie już u niezmiernie utalentowanej Ewci w domku, bo rozmiarowo pasuje dla jej lalki.:) Ewcia w zamian przysłała mi takie cudowności. Ręcznie robione przez Nią notesiki i metalowa latarenka już zamieszkały u Tsukiego.
Ewcia jeszcze raz serdeczne dzięki!

Oh, Ewa!!! I am so flattered that you like all my gifts! The painting from the Greek Islands is one I did many years ago... how did I know you would like it...? Well.... "Happy is s/he who like Ulysses has traveled far..." greets me every time I come here...! I actually painted the original flowers in the borders while I was traveling in the Islands... they were so beautiful I could not resist!
I am so glad you like the Icon! As you know... I am not fast at the painting... I do have to go over parts quite a bit... So I am glad it ended up with the Spirit of Love with which it is painted!!!

Yes indeed, Ewa, I was missing your blog posts in the past weeks, but here you are :D! Wow, you have been spoiled by Betsy, this icon is really beautiful. Betsy can paint so well, she is a real artist.
The swap with Ewa (she has the same name as you, if I understood it well?) is wonderful too. They have spoiled you both, enjoy your new goodies a lot :D!
Big hug, Ilona
