Handmade goods for every family <br>by&nbsp;Alexandra Macedo<br><br>I have a blog for some years now and I spend&nbsp;much time walking in portuguese cities finding antique vintage treasures. When I'm not photographing, I spend my days crocheting and knitting with portuguese yarns that I find in small city shops.&nbsp;<br><br>Before I make a blanket or a pillow, I like to draw in my squared page notebook: schemes, patterns and designs that I develop from my own memories and what I see in the cities I visit. Portugal can be a museum if you pay attention to every detail. These subtleties: the geometric shape of a door, a fallen leaf from a tree, a hanging blanket from a window are &nbsp;living memories to design upon.<br><br>You can follow my work on my&nbsp;<a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.mitrika.blogspot.pt">blog</a>&nbsp;where I register these visual impressions on a weekly basis.<br><br><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/mitrika/">flickr</a>&nbsp;/ <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.facebook.com/mimitrika">facebook</a> / <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://pinterest.com/alexandramacdo">pinterest</a><br><br><div><div><br></div></div><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a>
