day 403 – four thank yous

This is the final post of four things on but the site will remain open with updates on the things to come.

This has been a truly amazing year with this project. From day one I knew when I was organizing my studio and seeing how many small collections of things I kept and really loved, to Allison Sommers first post on January 2nd 2011, and in early November when all weeks had been assigned, and now when everything is all said and done that the concept of this project was something people really enjoy. We love our stuff and other peoples as well.

I can’t thank the Guest Editor’s enough for making this what it is. It takes courage to expose the things we hold onto. The Guest Editor’s did it and the internet has found out a little more about each of them.

I encourage everyone to keep checking back to find out what is next for this little project. My hope is a bound book and art exhibition. But I am open to other possibilites.

My humble thank you to everyone who made this possible and the collectors around the world, past, present, and future.

Happy New Year.

In terms of your things, what does your space (studio/office/orliving area) look like? please describe.
We’ve just moved into a new house and the first room we did up after the kitchen and bathroom was my office. So at the moment, although it is full of ‘stuff’ it is clean and organised. But that won’t last long.

Where do you normally get your things?
Car boots, charity shops, hand-me-downs and ebay.

What is your prize possession/”thing”/collectible/tool? 

I’m not sure I have a single prize possession because there are so many things. But as I get older I get more nostalgic for times past and people past. So I will show you my most prized possession as a child, which was my teddy bear. I had him from birth and he spent the first eight years of my life tucked under my arm pit. He features in practically every photo of the time.
