Giveaway :: f. is for frank

Thursday, February 27, 2014


{shop :: Facebook :: Twitter}

My mom used to collect charms when she was young. Recently, she passed the charms down to me on a set of chains and I am constantly overwhelmed by the sheer magic these charms hold. I have realized that I should start collecting my own so that I have something just as meaningful to pass along to my own daughter (added to her grandmother’s, of course.) The trick is finding the pieces that mean something to me so that I am passing along actual meaning, not just trinkets. Good think I have the BSP, my friends.

Casey Melton and Shannah Frank are the beauties behind f. is for frank and their background in architectural design brings a sense of form and function to their jewelry line. Their aesthetic is unique and incredibly inviting and there is weight to these pieces, not just in element but in design as well. This xoxo charm seems like the perfect addition to my collection, don’t you think? Truth be told, you could close your eyes and click on any item in the f. is for frank catalog and I would be a happy camper. I’m thinking I’m not the only one.

f. is for frank is giving away one Pewter Jefferson Necklace to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Thursday, March 6th.
Please visit f. is for frank and tell us: What collections do you have started? (Or have they passed down to you? Or do you abstain from collecting things?)
Start checking the winner’s box on Tuesday, March 11th, to see if you’ve won!

    I love that necklace!

    I collect green vintage wooden things and folk art chickens and rusty garden art and…..I have to really watch myself. there is a fine line between cool collecting and clutter.

    I have started collecting wedding photos from my husband’s and my extended family. I’ve gotten parents and grandparents and am working on siblings now. After my dad died, I hung up one of my parents wedding pictures and it makes me so happy to see them young and so happy. I think surrounding ourselves with reminders of happy marriages is a great way to start our married life.

    I have just started to collect glass fishing floats. They are literally just bubbles of glass that have been found on beaches but their stories are so mysterious and they are such lovely colors.

    I started collecting snowmen a few years ago when my Godmother sent me a set of candlesticks that are awesome – the candles sit in the top hat.

    I collect great proverbs and sayings. When I hear something I like, I write it down on a note card in permanent marker and I keep these cards all piled up together. When I am experiencing an especially trying time or have some feeling captured by a saying, I like to carry that card all day and feel comforted by having the words close by.

    I collect blue glass.  I have vases, bowls, even sea glass.  I like to collect pieces when I travel.

    My mom taught me to never buy more than one of anything (leaving more space for new finds). That said, collections have still managed to accumulate, mainly elephants (my lifetime favorite),  postcards (travel souvenir), and skeleton keys (because I may come across a locked door for which I’ll already have the key).

    I collect travel memorabilia. Each time we take a trip, we buy something unusual or unique to that location to remember our journey. So even though it ends up being a random assortment of things, it is really just the memories we are collecting and these items are our reminders of all of those great times!

    Beginning in 5th grade, I collected Beanie Babies. I stopped collecting around 7th/8th grade when it suddenly wasn’t “cool” anymore to be attached to stuffed animals.  However, I still have all that I collected…probably over 50 different Beanie Babies. Each one has a special meaning to me, especially if they were purchased by my parents. I don’t plan on getting rid of them!

    After playing way too much FallOUt, my husband and I have ended up with a bottle cap collection. it started out as a joke, and somewhere along the way became a real thing. I’d like to make a bottle cap table out of them someday.

    I collect souvenirs from every place that I visit.  Just something small (like a small painting from Japan, small Eiffel Tower, etc.)  to remind me of how wonderful it was to visit the places.  I have them placed everywhere in my home.  Every once in a while my children would ask me about them and I tell them stories and hope that one day I could take them or they would travel on their own.

    I have started collecting two things:  1)  old family treasures.  I don’t care what it is, if it belonged to an ancestor, I’m crazy about it.  My grandparents are fully aware of this and now instead of buying me gifts for Christmas or my birthday, they just send me, say, the fancy pie server that was my great-great-grandmothers that they never use.  Ah! I love it!!!!  I want to be connected to those beautiful people that came before me.
    2)  I’ve started collecting old children’s books that I had when I was a kid.  Except …older (and when possible) original versions.  I’m an English teacher…so this also rubs up against my other interests….but…like…old Alice in Wonderland editions….or a first edition of The Little Engine that Could (the 1950s version, not the 1930s version which I could never afford!).  Again, this collection is like HEAVEN to me….

    Ornaments! I’m a Christmas baby (well, 5 days before) so my aunt started collecting ornaments for me when I was really young. I loved getting them every year then and it was so nice to actually have ornaments that meant something when I got my first tree. On our honeymoon, my husband and I decided to start buying ornaments when we travel. It’s a nice memento but won’t clutter. When our children were born I started collecting for them as well. We love pulling the old ornaments out every year and adding the new ones to them.

    Hmm this seems an easy question but it’s really not. 
    I have a lot of nailpolish, but not a collection.
    I have heaps of duvet covers, but not a collection.
    I have a thousand hair ties and bobby pins, but not a collection…
    Ex boyfriends ^ same deal.

    I have thought about this for a while and I think it’ll be that I collect bits of wrapping paper/cards from my birthdays and my daughters birthdays too. 

    My family are all very quirky and all my aunts are “cat” oriented like me; so there’s an awful lot of cat papers and cards, and then the odd ladybug one or fairy one… All are beautiful and I keep them all in a box.

    I collect anything elephant related! They have been my favorite animals since I was 7. I’m 22 now. Also in the second grade, I had the biggest sticker collection in all the land, so now a days when I see cute stickers, I can’t help but want to get them!

    Currently, I do also collect cute stud earrings.

    I collect souvenir spoons from places we’ve been and hang them on our Christmas tree with ribbon, and interestingly none of the spoons were picked up from the place they are meant to commend! Souvenir spoons seem like such a dorky thing to look for at thrift stores and antique stores, but it makes me smile to be such a young woman with a little old lady collection. Plus, everyone that sees our Christmas tree says that it’s beautiful and such a good idea, that makes me happy too!

    My mom’s  nickname was “Faige” which means “little bird” in yiddish, hence her love for little birds ~ so she always collected little bird figurines – She passed away 6 years ago and eventually each of her kids, grandkids and great grandkids will get it pick their ‘bird’ to treasure.  I have decided to continue to grow her collection so when traveling I always try to find the perfect bird.  I was just in Catalina Island and found a beautiful little bird made out of wood sitting on a perch.  It is in my office with a couple of her other birdies that I love as it reminds me she is watching over me

    I love to wander the shores of Lake Michigan and look for unusual rocks and fossils. Some of my favorite finds are sea glass, beautifully hued stones, rocks in the shapes of hearts, and fossils of any kind – it blows my mind to think I’m holding the fossil of a sea creature that lived perhaps 500 million years ago! But as much as I treasure my finds, the process of collecting them is equally enthralling to me. I never know what the beach has in store for me, with its ever-changing light and waves, it’s such a thrill to explore. When I pick up and hold one of my found treasures, it always transports me right back to those sounds and sights.

    I’m not much of a collector, but I do like to collect heirloom handiworks made by my female relations. I’ve got hand-sewn quilts from both of my grandmothers and a quilt made by my great grandmother and beautiful crocheted and knitted pieces from my mother and grandmother. I’m not interested in monetary inheritances. I want the beautiful handiwork from my kindred womenfolk to remind me if their artistry and the beauty they created in difficult times.

    I have a few collections but my most precious are the cards, notes, and drawings that my kids have given me.  They may not be expensive but they are priceless, They are the things I’ll look back on in years to come with fond memories:)

    Love this necklace! It actually reminds me of the rabbit in Michael Jacksons Moonwalker movie. Man, I loved that video as a kid! When I was a child I collected stickers, pencils, erasers, shells, rocks…you get the idea. As an adult I still have the collecting bug but I’m trying my darndest to keep those collections focused and simple. I now collect vintage books. I love the way they look, the way they feel and even the way they smell!

    In addition to amassing copious amounts of books, I have a collection of journals… my grandmother’s, my great-grandmother’s, my great-aunt’s, my mother’s and my own.  I hope to compile them into an anthology someday.  They are treasured above everything else.

    I have a collection of oddities that I keep in an old Patron gift box painted white. I love how the box allows me to look at all the random things I have collected with mysterious sentimental value. Rocks I found to be pretty or interesting, feathers, seashells, cuttings from magazines, scraps of patterned cloth, bits of jewelry and more make up my collection. I feel that each and every thing has a bit of myself encapsulated within it. I don’t know why I collect these “hidden” treasures, but I wouldn’t mind passing it on to my future children.

    My mom used to collect charms too ! My dad would buy her new ones for birthdays, valentines day or for no reason at all. A couple of my favorites are – a little gold cigarette lighter and when you open it say “you light up my heart” another fav is a globe that opens and says “you mean the world to me”  – as for my collections – In my travels I try to find a magnetic bottle opener that I keep on the side of my fridge to remind me of all the wonderful places I had visited

    I collect knick-knacks from around the world. I just find it so interesting to see what other cultures do for art. They are usually small, and I, (or somone I am related to) Has been to the country they came from. They also tend to be an animal from that country- an elephant, a bird, a seal.

    The apple company prltensey has Rhapsody just as one application, this is a excellent start up, but it’s previously distracted with the lack of ability to store locally upon your mp3, as well as a new disappointing 64kbps little bit of cost. When this transformations, then it can relatively negate this specific appeal for those Microsoft zune, nevertheless the 10 tunes a month is still a significant also in Microsoft zune Pass’ choose.
