Posted by comeintomygarden in Antiques.

Anita Henry and Dianne Johns search for the unique in their antiques, primitives and vintage collection including a variety of handcrafted items.  They specialize in lamps made from found objects such as moss and lichen.  Feathers, shed deer antlers, and other objects collected from the woods on their farm in Alabama result in unusual mixed media creations.  They love to dig around in old barns and homesteads, with permission, of course.  Tools, old farm equipment and rustic items abound in their area and continually add to their collection.  They also cane chairs, custom make a variety of items, and provide layaway service!

Anita graduated from Alabama with an RN degree and is retired after a 30 year career.  Dianne attended the Kansas City Art Institute and the University of Missouri and graduated with an art degree.  Both are potters as well as antique collectors.  They are sisters who happened to find out what that really means in adulthood.  Anita has her pottery, textiles and watercolors in private collections in the US, Mexico and Japan.  Both have had their work in Atlanta Galleries and sold at Americas Mart and the Southeastern Flower Show.
