Her kitchen looks like an old-fashioned candy shop, with vintage glass containers filled with goodies. In her dining room, she displays art work in a thrifted church bulletin case. It looks like her collage of items on display changes, and I think everything she does, including her paper collages, is completely inspired.
You can see why her home has been featured all over the place, online and in mags and newspapers. Did I mention that she also has a wicked sense of humor? "We live in a crack den when no one is photographing our house," she confessed.
Enough of my words, go check out her blog and her Etsy shop.
Shown above are the kokeshi dolls I bought in Japan 11 years ago. I found them in a shop at Nikko's Lake Chuzenji, which is famous for its monkeys. Why only two, you may ask? Good question. We were on shopping overload in Japan. There was just so much there that we absolutely fell in love with that it was hard to choose what to buy. (We also had a tiny California '50s tract home at the time that had no extra space for collections.) And I guess I always felt that we'd be able to return regularly. So far, that's not happened, but I'm hoping that these two dolls will be the start of a collection.
I'd love to see what you're collecting these days.
