Oops, I did it...

I opened a shop...

After going pregnant for quite a while - first with
the thought, then with the thing - well, here it is...

I´ve put in a few things I had lying around, for a start...

And to celebrate the fact, here´s another little
Give-away:

I´m offering 3 VIRTUAL VOUCHERS...

This is supposed to mean: in case the winners buy
something at the shop, I´ll refund them 10 € each
(no hurry, it will be valid open end...)














To participate, please answer a question:

Supposing there were no financial limits nor lack
of storing space (and no scruples about amassing
worldly goods while others are starving...)

What would you like to collect?

Me, I´d (not to mention all kinds of fabrics old
and new, and expensive shoes...) go for a room
or two full of cloth creatures from around the world -
and could develop a fancy for porcelain dogs, I guess...

The Give-away will be open for a week, till Febr. 11.

Pooh, now a well-deserved rest...

Looks very good, the shop.
As a collector, I would buy old doll houses and Kaufmannsläden, I would restore them and open a museum.

Wonderful shop.... congratulations! I love your work and will keep an eye out for some of those wonderful creatures you create.

As for collections... I would love to collect old crockery and cutlery and linens. I love art books and vintage books (I think I'm going to need a house for my collection rather than a room or two!!!).

At the moment I collect fabrics and I am a growing collection of art dolls and creatures.

If money were no object I would buy a piece of art from each of my favourite artists and I have very many favourites! I would need a big studio to fill ... maybe a gallery!

Thank you for a lovely giveaway!

Your shop looks really lovely; you did a great job :-)
I'm afraid I'm not a collector, more of a give-awayer...

Viel Erfolg mit dem Shop! Ich würde Muranoglas-Briefbeschwerer sammeln - es gibt unglaubliche, mehr oder weniger unbezahlbare Exemplare aus dem Biedermeier. Aber Figuren aus Stoff von Textilkünstlern aus der ganzen Welt ist eine sehr sehr gute Idee für ein Sammelgebiet, erschwinglich (und unzerbrechlich).

viele Grüße!

Paper, lovely thick creamy paper. Notebooks, all handmade with beautiful stitching -I'd stack them higher and higher every day, and just keep stroking - Ok,you right, that's what I do already.

congratulations, the shop looks inviting, professional, and absolutely lovely!

I'd collect work from other fiber artists, and MAPS, and images of The Blessed Virgin Mary (I know, I know -- it doesn't have to be rational, right?), old botanical prints, and ironstone.... just to name a few...

Congratulations--your shop is lovely! I'm not much of a collector, but I could make room for ethnic textiles or masks from around the world.

Well done on the shop - it does take courage and to face all that "in public" stuff..

I think I'd like some taxidermy heads sop I could knit them covers.
Then I'd have reams of old paper and costume jewlellery to take apart and make stuff with.

I collect handbags - wasteful and wondrous at the same time.


oh! I posted your heart - you may have it by now!

Thank you + danke...!
About collecting work from other textile artists: we can always swap - I´m willing to...

docbieling hat gesagt…

What a lovely shop! It is fun to drop in!

Velma hat gesagt…

i'd collect wilderness.
oh and books, artists' books, letterpress books.

ger hat gesagt…

To collect wilderness... that´s a wonderful thought, Velma - must add it immediately to my (somewhat faint-hearted in comparison)porcelain dogs...

Jane hat gesagt…

Thank you so much for the 'Wisdom' heart and all the little pieces of fabric, lace, buttons....lush! x
