giveaway & a collection: with simple joys paperie

.................................

i just love seeing what folks are collecting. i guess i kind of feel it tells us just a little bit about what inspires them, what they love, and what they choose to surround themselves with in their home. today, i'm delighted to present the next in the rikrak studio's collections series: 11 & a 1/2 quick questions with a wonderful artist on what they're collecting, (apart from their art supplies! ) you can also check out my new *the collectors* series on Etsy, based on these posts! hope you'll just love: vintage pincusions with Simple Joys Paperie.

.................................









who (are you) : Lana, wife, mom, self-taught-work-at-home artist

what (are you collecting) :pincushions (mostly antique and vintage, but I also have some made by friends and fellow artists ~ 19 shown in the photos are new, the rest are old ones)

when (did you start) :
although I’ve had a few for several years, I began consciously collecting about 5 years ago

how (many do you have?) : ninety something, last count J, including some not pictured that I forgot about until after the photos were taken

where (do you find them) :
thrift shops, junk stores, antique shops, online antique markets, gifts from friends

where (do you keep them) :
mostly in my studio on shelves, under little glass domes, beside my sewing machine, but I have a few vignettes displayed in other rooms

what (‘s a crazy/interesting story behind one) :
not crazy, but so very kind and thoughtful: a couple of weeks after doing an arts and crafts fair a few years ago, I received a surprise package in the mail from a lady who had visited my booth. She knew I loved old pincushions and had mailed an antique one to me along with another antique glass base to use to make my own!

what (piece would you like to add):
an antique sewing bird pincushion ~ an adorable metal clamp with a metal bird attached that has a pincushion on it’s back; I’ve seen them at online auctions, but they are too pricey for me.

why (do you love them) : for their simplicity and humbleness (you may read a little more about what I love about them here )

which (one is your favourite) & why : the stack of two tomato pincushions. The red one was my mom’s and the pink one was one she purchased for me when I took a home economics class in high school.

what (else do you collect)
:
lots of things (!) but here are a few: little silver woven baskets, ironstone pottery, aqua and robin’s egg blue pottery, bird’s nests, and folk birds made by friends and fellow artists









........................
thanks so much, nicey.

what a gorgeous gorgeous collection!

just as gorgeous is lana's amazing handmade paper artistry.

ever just need a space where beauty & lightness & a loving heart abound?

surely if it could be in a handmade shop, simple joys paperie would embody it.


take a cyberly stroll thru the delicate, intricate, airy & beautiful space that is Simple Joys for a breath of fresh air, a relaxing escape like no other and genuine sense of a thankful & appreciative handmaking soul behind each piece of art.

you can also visit lana's lovely blog,
tweets
and facebook.

another space dear to lana is the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasis.

Lana writes: "If {folks} would ever like to help a cause, to consider the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias. The website is http://www.nfed.org/. My youngest son, now 20, has a rare disorder called hypo-hidrotic ectodermal dysplasia and this foundation was a God-send in offering support when we got the diagnosis when he was only 2 years old. The founder called and spoke with me on the phone and the foundation sent all sorts of literature about HED. They also offer medical and financial help to those who need it."




i just love lana's amazine upcycled paper wreaths, love tokens, notecards & more.
and as i settle into my new home, you can
WIN something for own spaces or loved ones!
