Shop of the week: Mannia & Titta

Please meet the lovely twin sisters Maria and Christina, the owners of Mannia & Titta.  
Both sisters are married with no pets.  However Maria has a young son that helps keep her busy.  They live on the island of Cyprus, which is in the Mediterranean sea.  They like the fact that you can gaze at the stars at night and watch children play freely in the streets during the day, without worry.  They love having grown up in this small country.

The Sisters have "day jobs" They work in the economic department of a private company and are bookkeepers for a second company.  As busy as they are they try to steal time from the usual routine to, as they say, "give life to our ideas".  They like to spend their free time with family, cooking and watching the local football (soccer) team the Apollons.  They admit to having constant energy and being u stoppable when in a creating mood.  For them 24 hours in a day is not enough for all they want to do. 

Floral Clothespins
The twins started with jewelry making about 4 years ago.  They were drawn to handmade and simple design ideas.  As their own weddings were coming up and they were eager to use vintage and Bohemian styles (not common in Crete).  With unique inspired ideas in their minds they took to the internet.  They chanced upon Etsy in their search to fulfill those ideas.  Discovering Etsy was what made them decide to form Mannia & Titta. 

Woodland Fairy Wreath
In their own words their favorite inspirational quote is "HOW TO BE HAPPY:  think about how much better off you are than some people.  So wetry tobe thankful for the moments we live in this beautiful world the Lord created for all of us."
