...Lock, Stock & Iron...Lanne Love


There are innumerable talented and interesting people on the planet...

...but perhaps what makes someone truly exceptional, is their willingness to share what they know, to give away their knowledge with the sureness that in doing so, they become part of something greater than themselves...
Dick Lanne is one of the exceptional souls who gives freely...I adore and admire him for this...as well as for loving his wife painter, Jennifer Lanne as he does...

Dick is dedicated to the lost arts of backwoods survival, blacksmithing and the old ways of life. Since he shares all he knows...I have watched him work, utterly entranced, as he puts hammer to anvil, and tells his stories about how things were made, repaired and cherished for their usefulness...

I am totally thrilled and so appreciative that Ben Ashby, Editor in Chief of FOLK magazine asked me to write a feature on Dick...


...the current issue sports 6 pages...here's just a peek above...you real need this issue to take it all in..

Congrats Dick on the celebration of your style, your spirit and your knowledge...great knowing you...

xxoo Jen
PS if you need a copy of FOLK just holler, we have this and most of the back issues in stock...
