As I continue to invite more friends over for impromptu dinners these days, I realize I could use a good apron. Jeannie Balfour of West Palm Beach, Florida sews these simple, linen pinafores that I can't help but love. For her, it's about keeping things simple yet beautiful, rustic yet elegant. She's a Southern gal after all. As she shared, "The juxtaposition of elegance and decay holds a strong appeal for me. The bones of a once beautiful building falling into mossy ruins, well worn paths in a once blooming garden...I love frayed, soft edges."
And as an added bonus, Jeannie makes these elegant linen bento bags. She thinks of it as a sophisticated hobo bag that can be tied to your bike or held easily by hand. And if you want to send someone an extra special gift, this would be extra special packaging. Find it, here.
