Joke calls herself ‘the reverse Marie Kondo’, referring to the Japanese tidy-guru of the Netflix show ‘Tidying up with Marie Kondo’. Which means Joke does the opposite of tidying. She keeps everything. And her favorite thing to keep: snow globes.
“It all started 8 years ago when someone gave me a book about snowglobes (which you can see in the back of the middle shelf). From there on I just started looking our for them everywhere. I also get a lot of globes, because everybody knows I collect them now”, says Joke. She even has a snowglobe with her own face on it in her collection. It’s not her favorite one though: “The lawnower globe is my favorite because its different and so funny.”
Besides this impressive snowglobe collection, she has many others. Flip-books, pop-up books and ‘kitch made of shells’ to name a few. So who knows, we might be seeing another one of her collections in Werkplaats soon. For now, enjoy the globes!
