  1. I like also the clothespins, because it's a small object of the everyday that one can easily divert of his principal use, for example it can be very well used to connect sheets of drawing between them. A pretty and useful object at the same time !

  7. Hi Lisa. This is a very lovely thing you have going on here. I will enjoy following along. I grew up in a home full of collections (my mother's), and have a tendency toward creating them myself.

  8. I love clothespins especially the colorful plastic ones. I always think of my grandma when I'm putting our clothes out to dry since I helped put hers out so many times.

  21. Is it strange that I have a nearly overwhelming urge to rearange some of your collections?

    Its not that I find them displeasing... I just have feel the need to put them in a certain order.

    Despite this urge, I really do love this project.

  22. This collection actually brought tears to my eyes! My grandmother had a set of plastic clothespins that she hung her laundry with. I loved the colors of them....blue, green, and pink and would play with them when they weren't in use. Coincidentally, today marks three years that she has been gone. So thank you for evoking such a nice and warm memory!! I almost feel like I'm in her backyard again!

  23. Designboom did an article all about the evolution of the design of clothespins, with some great photos on their massive collection. (not that its about quantity)

  24. We call these clothes pegs in the UK. When I was a child we had gypsies who used to go door to door selling wooden ones they had made themselves , held togther with strips of tin cut from old cans. Recycling is not such a new thing after all! Hazel has one or tow in her collection of clothes pegs.
