introducing ... heirloomed.

I've been hard at work on a new collection and waiting with bated breath to share it with you! As October has come, cooler temperatures on their way, and the holidays are so close you can nearly taste it. The months to come are the ones that true memories are made of. Family and friends will gather; good things are to come. And, so I'm thrilled to share a sneak peek with you at last of my newest collection .... heirloomed.

The heirloomed collection is comprised of items that only get better with time. Each comes within a kraft package, inspired by the quaint setting of a rustic bakery, and is tied with a red, waxed thread. The collection launches with our 100% linen napkins, table runner and waist apron.

I believe the mantra says it all ...

The most cherished and beloved things one can own cannot be purchased. They must first be used and loved and enjoyed. Memories must be created, laughter had and good times spent. Then, and only then, these things become treasures, passed down for generations. And so they become ... heirloomed.

Would love to hear your feedback!

The Passing Down of Heirlooms: Life Magazine Preserved.

life-mag-apronI was intrigued to learn that Google has recently preserved the huge database of wonderful Life Magazine images. Renown as having some of the most captivating and beautiful photography, what a wonderful way for Google to share decade after decade of historical images with the world for years and years to come - preserving these images in time.

This image is one I found in the database of Life images of a classical apron shot. I love how proper & elegant this shot is - and must say that our waist aprons at IceMilk Aprons are inspired by this "high-worn" apron style of years past.

I do hope you'll search the Google database for these wonderful heirloom treasures!
