I've created this blog as an extension to my Etsy shop-- Mostaza Seed Designs. I sell earring display racks, upcycled home decor, and vintage finds.
Who: I'm a 27 year old girl, living in a 1921 farmhouse in Marietta, Georgia with my handsome and ever-so-patient husband, Nick. We were married in May of 2009 and are loving newlywed life. I enjoy all things vintage, travel, graphic design, Diet Coke, interior design, cheese (the stinkier, the better), photography, painting, Nutella, friends, family, and loooooong conversations over a cup of coffee or 'round the dinner table.
What: Mostaza means mustard in Spanish. The mustard seed is among the smallest of seeds in the whole world. In the Bible the mustard seed is used by Jesus as a model for the kingdom of God which initially starts small but grows to be the biggest of all garden plants. Faith is also spoken about in the context of a mustard seed. In Matthew chapter 17, verse 20, Jesus says: “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible." So, out of small things comes greatness and the vintage and seemingly unimportant items I find hold great potential for beauty and usefulness.
When: I don't know if this answers the "when" question, but here's a schedule of what I'll be covering in this blog. Keep in mind, that I may or may not follow the schedule, bu I'll be posting as often as I can:)
Monday's: Featured Etsy Sellers
I'll be highlighting the work of fellow Etsian's. Want to be featured? Contact me and I'll tell you how.
Tuesday's: Do It Yourself Day!
DIY articles are in abundance on the internet. I'll do the work of sifting through the web overload to deliver, cute, tested, AND easy projects.
Wednesday's: Mostaza Seed Originals
This is where I get to toot my own horn and showcase my recent designs, all for sale in my Etsy shop.
Thursday's: Home Decor Inspiration
If it strikes my fancy, it'll be up in my blog.
I have a great deal of photos from my world travels. I'll be dusting them off, sharing their story, and offering them up for sale at a good price.
Saturday's: Vintage Finds
I already do the work of combing flea markets and estate sales for vintage finds. I'll be not only posting them in my Etsy shop, but also sharing them on here!
Sunday's: A Day of Rest
Every once and a while I'll be doing giveaways of items from fabulous Etsy sellers.
Why? For fun!
