Rejuvenate: to render the world young

It started young. A mere 14 yrs of age and struggling to find a word that encompassed how I saw the world, I came to "Rejuvenate" in my 1940's dictionary. Pages falling out of place as I read ; I already felt homey in the "R's" and then read the description: to render young, to make new. So right then and there I grabbed cardboard box and sharpie-d the word and its definition on its side. Juva Gypsy was born. In the box were pants too big, scraps too pretty and anything I felt needed a shot at youth again.
In starting this Etsy shop I have been able to focus my desire to rejuvenate to a few of my favorite things and offer them to the world where I hope they will be loved and bring love with their color and presence.
It's obvious I love old things, old books, old clothes, old stories, old.......So getting to work with these finds that sound like the story of grandpa's first job, that smell like mamma's cornbread, and feel like the handkerchief handed to a lady of the 50's is inspiring. It inspires me to play with my kids like a kid, and write like I mean it, to live today fully, and to love. It is a privilege to create as our Creator does.

    I'm an enigma if you ask my husband, but I just like to think I'm Rianna. I see the world in colors and do my best to create those colors in my work. I think every day life is wrapped up, hung up and dressed with fabric. So naturally I love it!

Hello, I am Rianna and I love to create. Whether in the garden, kitchen or my studio I so enjoy putting all these ideas I have circling my head into reality.
I have always loved old things, things with history and stories and from an early age began scouring thrift stores as well as every antique shop I could drag my parents along to. As you can imagine I've collected quite a haul of beautiful old finds over my twenty something years, one of which is vintage linens, cloths and fabric. Designing my own patterns and finding the perfect fabrics to meet together in a bag is what really gets me going. I love comparing textures and colors to see who wants to be where. You can find these lovely ladies, as I like to call them, in my etsy shop. So feel free to browse and enjoy!
