Day 418- Spanish Guitar, Desert Rose


In the days when I was void of any creative inclinations, inspiration came to me from the most wonderful sources and in unexpected ways.

Last month, it came to me in a tiny box filled with ginormous flair. I see dedication, commitment, perseverance. In his Spanish guitar, I saw his music. 

Placed alongside a beautiful white shawl from Seville and the desert roses sent to me last year, there was a harmony that made me want to sing along.


Thank you, Contar for the Spanish guitar which every detail you handmade down to the last string. And thank you to your sweet wife for the shawl that she knitted, warming me to my very core. Dear Arantza, thank you too for the wonderful desert roses. 

But mostly I want to thank all of you who with your gifts have inspired me to return to my art which I have neglected for a while.

*********************************

This may be a good time to let my friends here know that my mailing address changes every 2-3 years. Regretfully, I have found out that a friend's gift was sent to my old address. It was not forwarded to me as I have moved since 2 years ago. Even as I write, I have just moved again into this new place on 15 Sept.  I hope that the gift was returned to the sender because as with many gifts exchanged in our world, they were made with so much heart, it will break mine if the gift was lost.

Hi Sans,
Wow, what a amazing guitar! Love it.
The shawl and roses very nicely done too.
It is wonderful to get gifts from around the world and very sad if they get lost in transit. :(

Hugs and can't wait to see how you are going to use these in your art.

Oh, isn't it Amazing how a little gift can be so inspiring? Filling a gap we didn't know was there.... sparking a tale of their own...! It truly is Magic how it all comes together!
The guitar is Gorgeous! And the tiny shawl just whispers of breezy evenings....
So good to see these minis "sing" to you! :)

Sans! said...

Ewalina, your message just reminded me that I have changed my mailing address yet again, just on 15/9/14! So dear SS, if you have received my package for the flower tea, that address is an old one.

I am not sure I can ever do a Spanish scene with a depth and understanding that I will always want for my project. But I am sure I will use the guitar one day :)

Wow what a beautiful gift this guitar is. Contar and his wife are a most generous couple. The shawl and flowers are very pretty. Enjoy!
P.S. I'm not giving up hope for the tea flower to arrive. There is trouble going on at our post office with workers on strike every now and than.
Hugs, Drora

Hi Natalia! Looks like quite a few of us were "off" for some time.

I went top your blog and wanted to leave a comment but your verification box is not working?! This is the comment I wanted to leave for yoru last post :)

"It does have a sort of snowy, wintry feel and it is such a lovely elegant carpet.

Natalia, it is always so good to come back here to blogland and know that everyone is still working on their minis. We all inevitably come back to what we love, don't we? :)"
