I received an email from Janet McCaffrey sometime in May when she discovered The T-Cozy through a link on her friend Charlotte’s blog, house wren studio. (Thank you, Charlotte!) Janet invited me to visit her blog and web site and we realized we have some things in common; we both have a love of cheerful, lighthearted vintage things, we’re both really tall, and we share graphic design as a career. (Janet still freelances and I have moved on.)
Needless to say, I loved what I saw on her blog and web site, both called Primrose Design. After chatting some more, Cynthia and I decided we’d love to sell some of Janet’s wares at T-Party. Two large boxes arrived last week filled with lovely items; beautiful pillows, lavender sachets (their fragrance is divine) and vintage-inspired rick-rack trimmed tea towels. (I want to buy them all for myself, but I better save them for our customers!)
As Janet states on her web site, Primrose Design was created as a way to combine her lifelong love of design with the sewing and needlework skills taught to her by her grandmother. It’s easy to see why Janet’s pillows have been described as fabric collages as she expertly combines patterned textiles, trims, embroidered panels and vintage buttons in perfectly designed compositions. Her sewing skills are meticulous and top notch.
We are so thrilled to have Janet’s inspiring creations at T-Party. Another successful bloggy connection!
