Gingham Apron

i photographed my mom's handmade apron back in july 2009 and submitted it to pictory for a happy place showcase last september. yesterday, i found out it was included in a gorgeous handmade showcase curated in conjunction with etsy and i could not be happier. sometimes, you work & work & work and wonder if you're getting anywhere, so to be included with such incredible photographers is a just reward.

the timing is also interesting since i just opened a vintage etsy shop, and although this apron is vintage, it will never be for sale.

xo, cindy
