Mój latający dywan / My Flying Carpet

Dedicated to tkmorin and my international readers.

Shortly  after my announcement of a long break in writing my blog, I have received a new  award nomination from tkmorin, a creator of a brilliant blog on the subject of history of Canada.


What a wonderful coincidence: thank you, friend! As before, after the nomination by Stephanie and by Marcela, I haven’t had time to implement the necessary procedure required in such situation. However, I’ve decided to thank you in a different, rather unusual way.

I’m extending to you, tkmorin, a virtual invitation to Poland with a photo showing the Poland Travel Guide Polska / Poland with my favourite wooden Polish birds perching on top of the book.


I am truly happy to be a member of the blogger’s society. It means so much to me for a reason completely inconceivable to citizens of the free world. For a long time I lived in a communist state, practically without open borders. Many years ago meeting people from other lands in Poland was almost a miracle for a humble citizen, and talking to them—hard or quite impossible due to our poor knowledge of foreign languages. This has been changing slowly at first, and recently much more quickly. In spite of this change, however,  I continue to be amazed that I am able to  ‘talk’ to so many people all over the world, from each continent (excluding Antarctica), from over 60 countries , and that they are reading my blog. So this blog at is like a magic carpet from a beautiful tale. You can see a part of it below under the title A Whole New World:

Of course I am not a beautiful, young princess, but sometimes I feel like a girl flying through the skies, gazing at the following people (in the alphabetical order, with the exception of tkmorin) :


Agroekonomija from Serbia

Andrzej from Poland

Bente from Norway

Cheyenne from US

Chris from Indonesia

Elisabeth from France

Jan from Belgium

Joseph from India

Katy from Czech Republic

Martha from Italy

Marsha from US

Micheline from  Canada

Ralph from Spain

Maria and Tim from US

Marcela from US

Uzoma from Nigeria

Rebecca from Canada

Przemysław from Poland

Sigoese from Indonesia

Stephanie from US

Razca from Romania

Wendy from US

Virginia from US

Volfee from Poland …

It’s a never-ending list; I have to stop!

Once more: so long, everybody!

Magdalenki przed Wielką Przerwą / Madeleines before a Great Break

Dear Friends,

I have received two new nominations for blogosphere awards. I’m sending my warmest greetings to the two persons who themselves have created great blogs and who recently have nominated me for lovely awards.  I would like to extend my deep gratitude to:






Unfortunately, because at the moment I am involved in several complex projects at my museum and at home, I have no time to implement nomination procedures. Instead I have decided to present a special gift to my most favourite bloggers. It is a MADELEINE .


On this photo you can see the  madeleines  I baked myself for a gathering of my Polish friends  who meet at the museum to discuss literature. Since on this particular occasion we talked about Marcel Proust I presented them with these famous little pastries, which they ate with gusto!   Some time ago I have written in this blog about madeleines, invented in the Polish king Stanislaw Leszczynski’s kitchen:

Thus a delicious MADELEINE goes to STEPHANIE and MARCELA and ALL my good FRIENDS from the  blogosphere.

So, did you get my madeleine? Can you taste  its flavour?  Enjoy.  You may sip some of Marcel Proust’s lime blossom tea as well; they go well together.

See you later, my friends. I will be very busy this summer but I will try to come back as soon as possible.

With  kind greetings,

A Typewriter

Dear Friends,

I have received recently several nominations for blogosphere awards. I was very grateful and glad but had no time to thank formally my promoters on my blog: I have been very busy at the museum and at home. I do not wish, however, to appear discourteous and will no longer delay expressing my appreciation.

First of all I’m sending my warmest greetings to the three people who have created themselves great blogs and who have nominated me recently for lovely awards:

I would like to convey again my thanks and joy. Having been so honored by my readers I have decided to indicate my most favorite bloggers as well. Any attempt to come up with a list of all the blogs I would like to visit would be simply impossible.

Here they are: The Best Bloggers list according to WM!

(Their order is of no importance)

I have to stop here, although my list is much longer.
If, at any time, I am nominated again and fail to acknowledge it, please remember that I am very busy but always feel  enormously grateful and privileged.
Best wishes to you, my friends!
