Handmade goods for every family
by Alexandra Macedo

I have a blog for some years now and I spend 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. 

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  living memories to design upon.

You can follow my work on my blog where I register these visual impressions on a weekly basis.
