The beauty of raw





















My husband has so often pointed out how hard it is to put a finger on my taste. This is something I take as a compliment. I am here to declare, my taste is raw! I love anything that is not mass manufactured, that has that wonderful patina given to it by years gone by without the traditional look, something that shows all the personality and love of the creator of the piece. In other words, handcrafted with a personality and imperfections showing, without being cute. Have a hard time with cute. It's just not my thing unless it is coming from my kids. Today, I looked through my favorites on Etsy and re-discovered some old favorites that I would love to share with you. These are shops that feature the style that I love the most and I am in awe of these artisans' work. Please take a moment to check out their shops.
