Las Rzeczy

Las Rzeczy (Lat. silva rerum) was a type of book seventeenth-century Polish noble families kept at home and wrote down in it everything from recipes and expenses to anecdotes and poems. Arguably, it was one of the forerunners of the blog. We can only thank forest fairies that it was the silva rerum and not the coffin portrait that caught on some three centuries later.

This particular silva rerum belongs to Pani Misiula and Pan Gryzmak, who don't share too much with seventeenth-century nobility. Definitely not the taste in haircuts.

This blog is bilingual and features a boy and a girl, their various adventures and found things.

Witamy i zapraszamy.
