Etsy Shop Spotlight: Looping Home

pillow necklace grey puff floor cushion crochet rug







































































It’s been awhile since I posted on an Etsy shop, so I was happy to find one based in Portugal. As you may know, my heritage is Portuguese hence why I decided to give my blog a Portuguese name. Looping Home is a mother and daughter shop based outside of Evora. Designer Ana, is a fine arts major, and she describes her household designs as simple and minimal. She uses zpagetti, a recycled yarn of the Portuguese textile industry, for her productions. I especially like the black yarn necklace, very chic!

Have a good weekend everyone!

Gorgeous is how I would describe The Raw Supply Co. on Etsy. All their products are real vintage finds, you don’t even want to use them, just display them. Where bottle labels, spools of yarn, or medallions are collectables. Makes you want to have lived during that time. Why can’t things today be like that? Most packaging we just throw away. The Raw Supply Co.’s products seem to have a story behind them which you want to discover. Again I would add these items to my birthday wish list.

PS. this week I am in Nairobi, Kenya so look for some posts on that.

Etsy Craft Party: in Zurich


I’m really happy to see the Etsy community in Switzerland organizing a craft party on June 20th in Zurich! Etsy Craft Parties are a global celebration of meeting and making and parties are organized all over the world. This year’s theme is craft for community. The Zurich party will focus on recycling and upcycling. The event will take place from 17h30 to 20h30 at the “Werkstatt” at Schindlergut GZ. All potential profits will be given to Tischlein Deck Dich.

Only 35 participants can attend and if you are interested in joining, you can register here. For those of you attending I will be providing discount coupons to my Etsy shop.

I wish I could attend but unfortunately going from Geneva to Zurich during the week is a bit hectic, but I wish everyone happy crafting!

Who says that nature does not influence us? After the sun finally came out on Sunday, I realized where my inspiration has been coming from! I have added three new products to my Etsy shop: two violet toddler duvet covers, each with its own twist, and my first flat sheet of the season in a green slate colour. With the weather changing for the better this week, I was motivated to finally put this sheet on the shop.

My little V even took part of the photo shoot and was nice enough to lend me her doll’s bed and her Jess Brown doll. She is now my official assistant.

I hope you like these new items as much as I liked making them! You can find them here. Have a wonderful sunny week.
