In a blink of an eye...it's gone!

Hello friends..sometimes I sit in my studio and work on a new design and I wonder how it will be recieved. I play with my vintage fabric and trims...take my scissors to an old tablecloth, pin something here..tack something there. I stand back and take it all in. In the end I usually fall in love, but I always wonder if others will see what I do. 
Well today I realized that most of the time...YES..others do see the beauty in lovely well worn vintage fabrics like I do.
I listed this new Betty Grable Couture apron in my Etsy shop at 5:45pm and by 5:50pm it was sold to a lovely lady from Texas.
 At first, I thought Etsy had dropped my listing...I could not find it. What the heck! I just spent all that time listing...describing...loading photos and poof they lost it!
Then something made me check my 'SOLD' items and Bingo...there she was. 
Thank you Miss. Stephanie...will you be opening an apron Museum soon??

I have more pristine and gorgeous 1940's table linens I am working with so I will be adding to the Hollywood Golden Years series. Keep a lookout!
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.

All I can say is I just love Janet's aprons. When I cook I look at my aprons and decide on one. Depending what I am going to cook you know. I think of the lovely stories she writes as I wear them. Love you Janet! xoxo

Hey Janet, apron lovers around the world 'get' what you do, so don't be surprised when your lovely creations are snapped up so quickly.
A gorgeous day here, sewing taking place along with drinking coffee and looking at clever, creative people in the blog world .
Hope your week is going well.
