WIP: new fabrics for Summer. Lots of mango, berry, and aqua. Yum. I’ve already started listing buckwheat pillows* in these fabrics and will continue to add eye pillows and lavender sachets throughout the week. So, keep checking back!
* with these new fabrics, Mireio will be offering “buckwheat only” pillows (as well as Mireio’s signature blend of lavender and buckwheat) for those of you who would prefer your buckwheat pillow unscented.
Upcycled is such an unglamorous word! Someone invent a better one. . .go!
I’m not sure how I feel about this right now. I’m working on adding some adorable sweaters to the store… something to throw over a vintage slip when the evening turns cooler. The ETA on these is still really fuzzy. Partly because I’m working on them between sewing new Liberty pillows and filling existing orders. Also because I’m still feeling myself out on the concept. But I have this sweater hanging on the hutch door, and I walk past it all day—so, I’m getting there. Some ideas just take longer to evolve. You have to fiddle and tinker and nudge the creative process along. Right?
But really, don’t you think there has be a more romantic alternative to the word “upcycled”? Any suggestions?
Vintage Aprons in Aqua.
Today I’m working on photographing a few vintage pieces for new listings. These aprons are my favorite so far… in part because they come with a small token from me! They’re all handmade aprons, so I’m including a handwritten recipe card for Mireio’s famous scones with these adorable vintage aprons. In fact, the vintage aprons are part of my personal collection. It seemed only fitting to let them go with a favorite recipe as well!
