 …………Thank you Tere + Bethany….

Bethany and Tere are a mother and daughter team from 42nd Orange and M.O.M. The '42nd and Orange' part comes from the street corner where Bethany's grandmother's house was. M.O.M started years ago with a request for aprons for little girls. Recently they opened a new shop for their beautiful 'Antoinette Collection', a handmade line of jewelry… would you like to read more than visit their blog right here.
