Hi everyone! Kate and Tori are finally here! It took us over half a year to get back to our blog, but we sincerely hope to stay for a good while ;) We are going to share more finds, smart talks and little treasures. Please stay tuned!
Here is a new category in our blog - One beautiful shop. We hope to blog about it weekly ;)
This week's featured shop is Teresa's Primitive Treasures
. When Kate just opened Etsy as a regular user, not even a shop owner, this darling shoppe was one of the first stores to catch her attention.
Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, surrounded by a large family, I've always had the desire to create. Living on a farm, I remember waiting patiently for the feed truck to come each week in anticipation of the new feed sack prints. If only I had a few of those for today's creating! The area in which I now reside, just like my home, has many Amish families living nearby which is a constant reminder of the simple life!
In 1989, I began creating Amish dolls for a local gift shop which began my interest in selling my handmade crafts. Since that time I've added many new treasures and started attending craft shows.
My husband creates the wooden pieces and I do the finishing. It's been hard getting him to understand the look of primitives and not making everything so perfect. Together we make a good team!
In 1996 I opened an online shoppe,Teresa's Primitive Treasures, to sell my wares which has opened up a whole new door! I've meet some wonderful people over the years and now you can find my treasures in shops across the US.
Hi dear friends! Today we prepared for you 10 variants awesome and very unique Halloween gift tags. The images are created by Paulina Rodriguez (aka Donna Quixote) and the tag design was developed by her sister Sasha (aka Ralehandra).

My inspiration for this week is Saudade. Given by Paulina Rodriguez.
In Portuguese S. is a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves.
1. Vintage Off White Typewriter from charliesnest. A typewriter is something I really would love to have. I have no idea what I will do with it. I don't even have a place where to put it - but God! - it is a dream of my ;)
3. Antique Copper Luster Cup & Brown and White Transferware Tea Cup Collection from OhDearViolet. The cups are my little obsession. I do love all kinds of cups and even have a small collection. These are awesome, especially the small white and brown one. And the photography is absolutely stunning. I can't take my eyes of it.
