TIMO Handmade Giveaway!

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***
As you probably have gathered, I am a huge fan of Etsy--- I have stumbled upon some the most creative people in the world on Etsy, and Timor, creator of TIMO Handmade, may just be my favorite!

TIMO is a small, hand-made design line based out of Israel.
Being hand-made, each and every item is one of a kind--sewn with an eye for detail and a touch for fabric.

TIMO came about when the creator discovered they'd accumulated a large textile collection, which included a small case of multicolored threads, a old favorite shirt, a jar of buttons with no apparent relation to one another, a handkerchief Timor's grandfather’s initials, an embroidered pillow cover, hole included, and on and on. Timor's desire to sew these together, to make something new, was the realization of TIMO.

TIMO is part of the EcoDesign trend, standing up for the right consumption and the right manufacturing, alongside recycling, minimization of manufacturing waste and simplification of processes.

TIMO is a collection, a game and a source of livelihood, all taking place in Timor's own home, and thanks to Timor's generosity, one lucky reader will receive $50 USD towards TIMO Handmade!

"I feel that in painting you have to mix the colors on the palette and in the world of fabrics the palette is ready and I only need to look for connections. It’s also nice not to have to be practical in my designs (like one must be when designing clothes or furniture). When a product doesn’t have to meet any practical need, it allows for a lot of freedom – and it also leaves room for the consumer to decide how to relate to it."
-Timor Cohen

I love EVERYTHING in the Timo Handmade shop!
But if I were to chose to put the gift card towards something for myself it would be the Romantic doll with Beaded Hair flowers. I also adore the families that she makes. For the kiddo it would be the Christmas mouse with mustard scarf & polka dot socks.
I follow life with the Hux on Twitter & am already a fan of Timo Handmade on FB. Will tweet about the giveaway because it is truly wonderful! Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

I would buy that rad Christmas Mouse. Or maybe a duck/bird/penguin. Or possibly a spike-y haired doll. But probably the mouse.
