Time to take a whirl through Etsy, that amazing marketplace of handcrafted everything, and see what Amish-themed things we can find. And, geez, everyone seems to be making and selling masks. Etsy is packed with masks of all sorts, even Amish-themed ones.
AMISH DOOR CINNAMON ROLLS: The Amish Door is a mainstay of the Amish settlement near Wilmot, Ohio. It's a touristy place, but it has an amazing bakery with plenty of Amish employees helping to make the goodies. Look at this mouth-watering roll. I'm tempted to order some for me. This is a partial description: Amish country delivered straight to your door!
From the Amish Door bakery! Enjoy 4 mouth watering cinnamon rolls with caramel icing. For even more pleasure, warm them up and have a sweet breakfast!
Vintage Cookbook Mennonite Family Favorites Black Rock Retreat: Black Rock Retreat is a Christian retreat in Lancaster County. Sounds amazing, with wonderful programs, etc. So, I'm not even sure what this cookbook even means, is it made by the staff of the retreat? A group of ladies that went on a retreat? Well, the promo for the material says ladies auxiliary, so I'm guessing they are associated with the staff in some way. Here is some promo material about the book:
A compilation of recipes which were submitted by members of the Ladies' Auxiliary of Black Rock Retreat, Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania
Most of the auxiliary women have come from a Swiss German Mennonite heritage that has been known for its frugal creative women capable of preparing hearty and tasty meals.
302 pages of recipes and kitchen tips, sprinkled with charming pen and ink drawings by local artists
AMISH CORN RELISH: Wow, I just love corn relish. I think my favorite way to eat it is just to scoop it up with tortilla chips, but, I wonder about putting it on a hot dog? Check out the relish here!
AMISH CLOTHESLINE PAINTING: Not sure who the artist is, but I just really liked the crisp black and whites in this painting, it just resonated with me. Click here to see.
MINIATURE AMISH BUGGY: I like the craftsmanship here and the white buggy top. Here is more information from the listing:
Our miniature version of the PA enclosed hack Amish buggy. This Amish buggy or Amish pick up truck is used for hauling material and goods. The gray miniature is approximately three inches wide, five inches high, and ten inches long with rounded roof line and wooden side racks. Rolled curtains, handmade metal springs, and handmade narrow wheels with sixteen wooden spokes are some details we include in our signed and numbered miniatures.
