Fall Shop Updates

We finished sewing new sets of aprons, towels, and oven mitts for the shop incorporating some of our finds from treasure hunting sales and fall colors. The photo above is a collage of some of the new fabrics and fall color inspiration. I'm trying to put together a little collage of fabrics and textures each time we create a new line of shop items (hoping to do this each season!)

We're also working on a monthly (or seasonal) newsletter - see the sign up on the right side of the blog - which will include news and special discounts for our etsy shop. We'd love for you to sign up!

This past weekend was unseasonably warm and sunny for us. I took full advantage of the sunshine and had a lot of fun playing stylist and photographing the new aprons, towels, and oven mitts. 

I did make time to reconnect with some college friends who I had not been in touch with for several years. We became close after spending nearly a month in Michigan together for a summer field course for our Fisheries and Wildlife degree. It was so much fun to catch up and find out what everyone is up to, it's quite funny that none of us are working in the field of our major! But that's ok, we agreed that we loved learning to identify birds by their songs and to recite scientific names (always a popular topic at a party, right?). I think that's why the little butterfly made it into the shop pictures, I was reminiscing of plant identification and life cycles. 
Funny how that happens, isn't it?

I hope your week is off to a great start! 
Thanks for stopping by, Jamie


  1. Love the fabrics you used on the first photo with the aprons!! I am going to have think of someone who will love one of these items:)
    Guess what. I joined twitter! You should, so I have a friend to talk to you. It gets a little lonely in the begining i guess:/

  2. Thanks April! This was the fabric we had been waiting so long for... oh boy, not sure I'm ready to jump on the twitter bandwagon just yet!

  3. Love all the pretty new additions to your shop and your photos look wonderful! Great work!

  4. I'm loving your new items, especially the gray and yellow apron. Beautiful!

  5. I've been drooling over the aprons since you posted this. Tonight I finally got my act together and ordered one! I had such a hard time choosing between them, so in the end I just went with the shortest one. Problem solved!

  6. I've been meaning to mention that I absolutely love the apron! It's so pretty and I'm slightly scared to get it dirty. But I'm definitely planning an outfit around it for when I host Thanksgiving this year!


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment, we are so happy you stopped by :)
