Now...back to our regularly scheduled programme:
What IS "La La?"

Anything that sets you to grinning and brings you joy. For some people it is balloon animals and others it is paddling a canoe.

Surround yourself with what makes you Happy. Do what brings you the most Joy possible.

I created this retail space several years ago, in the desire to share joyful handmade and thoughtfully curated vintage pieces with you.
-----

I've been a student of History and a Collector all of my life. I believe that we should know and honor the Past.

I believe that real living occurs in minutiae--it's in the details. I am also an apartment dweller with limited space.

For me and for others, I believe that collecting vintage "Smalls" is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the past. To get in the skin of another time. To see it from their perspective. (Sometimes *warts and all*).

Just think--it's Arm Chair Time Travel. The ability to Hold History in your Hand.
-----

I've also been a Maker all my life. My Southern Grannie would call this "messin' and 'gommin." And I guess it's true what they say about idle hands...

I am a full-time Milliner and if you like Hats and the art of adornment, please join me over at my other Etsy shop, FlapperFemme.

Thank you for your interest in my site and these items. I hope that they tickle and inspire you as much as they do me...

About

History in Your Hands

I have been creative all my life.
We all are. I truly believe this. It just manifests in different talents, abilities and interests. But the Creative Impulse--it is one thing that we all have in common.

This ability--to make something out of nothing--for me, manifests in a visual material sense. Always has...

I give a lot of credit to early influences-- we did not have a lot of extra money when I was growing up. But my parents did make sure that we had plenty of bits and bobs to "make" with. And a lot of freedom to make what we liked.

Paper. Fabric. Yarn. Pens and Pencils. Wood and Paint. Beads. You name it--it was all there waiting for you.

The best feeling of all was waking up on a cold, rural Illinois Saturday morning and opening up the craft closet and wondering, "what do I want to make today?" Ahhhh....

My Georgia Grannie called it "messin' and gommin'"

I call it Fun.
I it Love.
I call it Life.

I love everything that is colorful, fun and heartfelt.
I love all that is handmade. All that is human.
I love vintage. Things that have been loved and have lived in the past.

It's our history. Our legacy.

I invite you to play with me in my Etsy shop.
From my hands to yours...


xxx,
Leslie
