inspiration: world market apron
I love when inspiration shows up in strange places where you have to sift through a lot in order to find it. But I also love it when it's just right there for you. This apron was just right there. My mom found this in the Alpine Workshop collection at World Market. There's not much of it left, if anything, but this last apron was at our local store.
(By the way, that's my sister posing...she really was barefoot in our rather chilly house. That's normal for her...including her slightly purple feet. Crazy girl.)
I love everything about it. I love it so much that I decided to take some inspiration from it. I chose some colors similar to what is in this, and combined with some folk art ornaments I recently spotted, I've started putting together some ideas that will all show up on the blog in 2013. The mittens on yesterday's post are the start of this (do you see the connections?)
Don't you just love the colors and patterns? The sweet birds and sprigs of greenery? The borders and black backgrounds? So good! And you can expect many good things to come around thanks to this apron! Patterns, color palettes, printables, and more. Yay!
