Janet at The Empty Nest.! Since I can't seem to find time to do any sewing right now while I am in school, I am so pleased to show you some of Janet's wonderful creations. Janets beautiful work has been featured in Apronology And Somerset Studios Art Doll Quarterly.
Take a look at this darling little beauty of an apron....
Or this sweet thing made from vintage tablecloths and trimmed in ric-rac!
Ooh golly, look at this one!
Can't you see yourself whipping up a batch of potato salad for a picnic in one of these? I can. And to add to the fun, Janet makes up the sweetest stories to go with some of her aprons on etsy. I love reading the descriptions! But that isn't all she can do. She paints... Look at the charming New England morning she captured here.
And you should see her upcycled sweaters. I know it isn't cold now, but winter comes every year and these one of a kind sweaters are amazing pieces of art....talk about being multi-talented!
All of these can be found at heretsy shop, and I would run not walk if you see something you want.
Janet is one of my first advertisers and I am so pleased to be able to support another cottage industry. I think it is so important to celebrate and support the artistry and hard work of our blogging friends and neighbors. Real people who put themselves out there and pour so much love and imagination into creating something special. Janet and her blog and shop are special indeed and I know you will love getting to know her as I have. I hope you will stop by and say hello for me:>)
