Cutia Carmencitei / Carmencita's Box












Cutie din lemn, pictata manual cu vopsele acrilice, 
cu aplicatii de panglica pictata,  frunze uscate si boboci uscati de trandafiri /
Wooden box, hand-painted with acrylic colors and with appliques of painted ribbon, dried leaves and dried rose buds

In urma cu cateva saptamani am vazut intr-un magazin cu articole pentru pictura, cateva cutii din lemn.  De cum le-am vazut mi le-am imaginat imbodobite cu panglici, dantele, margelute, frunze si alte obiecte minunate. 
Iata una dintre ele: scaldata in aramiu, incinsa de o panglica pictata cu trandafiri.  Pe capacul ei se odihnesc cativa boboci de trandafiri si cateva frunze.  Iar cand o deschizi, te intampina un evantai de frunze care parca te imbie sa o umpli cu amintiri placute.  
De cum am terminat-o mi-am dat seama ca e numai buna pentru Carmencita!  Bucura-te de ea, cu drag!

A few weeks ago, in a painting supplies shop, I saw a few wooden boxes.  Soon as I set eyes on them I imagined them graced with ribbons, lace, beads, leaves and other beautiful things.
Here is one of them: bathed in copper and wrapped in a ribbon with painted roses.  On its lid rest a few rose buds and leaves.  When opened, a fan of leaves welcomes you to fill it up with pleasant things.
As soon as it was ready, I knew it was just right for Carmencita!  So, enjoy, with my love!
