An interview and a -forced- rest
Un entretien et du repos (forcé)

The delightful Ruth from Rubanesque had contacted me earlier in the fall for an interview to be published in a series of portraits on her blog.
Here is the interview :
Ruth also has a boutique on Etsy where she sells some Exquisite Threads and makes some delightful jewelry from a wonderful vintage collection of ribbons and other textiles.

La très charmante Ruth de Rubanesque m'a contacté plus tôt dans l'automne pour répondre à quelques questions. Ces entretiens font partie d'une série de portraits très intéressants, voici le mien :
Elle a également une boutique sur Etsy dans laquelle elle vend des articles de mercerie ancienne et elle est aussi créatrice de bijoux qu'elle réalise à partir d'une magnifique collection de rubans et autre passementerie ancienne.

Don't scroll down, there isn't any new pictures of earrings or jewelry nor pictures of the installation going on in my studio because I haven't been able to do anything with my hands for now two weeks. The heavy work on the studio awakened an old tendinitis of my good hand. As most people I've been blessed with two hands so I stopped using the injured hand and used the other one instead. Well I hurt the other one as well... So now all I have to do is ... nothing! Better said than done. And of course, these days being the most busy days of the year... Okay, I'll stop now and give you rendez-vous later, let's say next year!
p.s. the shop isn't empty yet, but soon will be, all items listed are ready to ship (with the precious help of , not the reindeer, but M. Tales)

Ce n'est pas la peine de descendre plus bas, il n'y a pas d'autres photos ni be nouveau bijoux ni de l'avancée de l'aménagement du nouvel atelier tout simplement parce que depuis 15 jours je ne peux rien faire de mes mains. J'ai réveillé une vieille tendinite de la pince pouce index de ma main droite. Etant dotée de deux mains, j'ai donc utilisée l'autre main et rebelote, tendinite aussi!Je suis donc en repos forcé en cette période habituellement d'activité dense. Le mieux à faire est de ne rien faire, ha! Plus facile à dire ...qu'à faire! Haha! Okay, je m'arrête donc et je vous donne rendez-vous plus tard, disons l'année prochaine !
p.s. : ma boutique n'est pas encore totalement vide mais va bientôt l'être, toutes les pièces sont prêtes à être envoyées (avec l'aide précieuse de, non pas les lutins ni l'assistant du Père Noël, mais de M.Tales)

  1. Lucy, best wishes with your hand/hands--and enjoy the holiday times--your redesigned page is beautiful! Love the photo of you.

  2. Oh so sorry to hear about your hands! All things at once, hey - but the human body is an amazing healer if it is given the room to do so. I hope you are back to yourself again soon. Wonderful interview, creations and photo of you Lucie! Take care of yourself. x

  3. Sorry to hear of your troubles and hoping you have a speedy recovery. These photos are gorgeous, Lucie! Beautiful display of your jewelry and beautiful you. I couldn't open the interview on my Ipad but am looking forward to reading it on the computer later. No doubt it will be a treat!

  4. I see you've done some changes in your blog layout. And wonderful interview, your story of collecting reminds me of Pippi Longstocking:
    "I don't know what you are going to do," said
    Pippi, "but I know I can't lie around and be lazy.
    I am a Thing-Finder, and when you're a Thing
    Finder you don't have a minute to spare.
    "What did you say you are?" asked Annika.
    "A Thing-Finder."
    "What's that?" asked Tommy.
    "Somebody who hunts for things, naturally.
    What else could it be?" said Pippi as she swept
    all the flour left on the floor into a little pile.
    "The whole world is full of things, and some-
    body has to look for them. And that's just what a
    Thing-Finder does," she finished.
    "What kind of things?" asked Annika.
    "Oh, all kinds," said Pippi. "Lumps of gold, os-
    trich feathers, dead rats, candy snapcrackers,
    little tiny screws, and things like that."

    Wish you get back sooner on your working table without pain and discomfort of any kind.

  5. I am so sorry to hear that you're having problems with your hands....hope your restful time is a time of creative ideas! The photo of you is lovely (love your curls!) and also loved reading the interview. Very nice!
