Just Something I Whipped Up and a {GIVEAWAY}

Welcome to Just Something I Whipped Up at The Girl Creative! This week our crafty linky party is being sponsored by Retrosaria Rua. Jenni, who is the owner of Retrosaria Rua, is an American living in Portugal and here’s a little clip from her:

“I like to sell things in my shop that others can use in creative pursuits and decorating. For instance, I’m selling vintage embroidery magazines. I framed one for my craft room wall (see https://sharedfromwayoverhere.blogspot.com/2010/04/place-of-restpart-2.html Pictures 8 and 9 for examples), yet there is so much more you could do with them! My shop is named after the Portuguese sewing notions stores called “retrosarias”, and “rua” means street in Portuguese and French. I have a favorite retrosaria in my town, and right down the street is the best little flea market that sets up monthly. My shop has some of my favorite finds from both of these and other treasure coves we’ve happened onto.”

What a beautiful and unique business. πŸ™‚ Jenni has graciously offered to give away any item in her shop to one lucky winner.
