~~Jessie Steele Review & Give Away~~

Super Christmas Ideas!!!!!!

Remember when you were young and you went to visit Grandma? I do and what I remember most is walking in and smelling all the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen and her coming out wiping her hands off on her ever present apron. I bet she had dozens of them and they all had a pocket on the front to keep small treats in for us. I really don't remember a time I ever saw her without an apron with the exception of times we had family get togethers at restaurants or the time we had pictures taken.

For some reason when I see someone with an apron on I immediately assume they are a wonderful cook like she was. I also wish that wearing one would make me into a great cook, but that is a whole other story.

Lately when I look through womens magazines I see several of the women wearing aprons so I looked into where they were getting them and I found the Jessie Steele site.

Look at this super cute aprons and accessories.

Information from the Jessie Steele site:

Jessie Steele's vintage-inspired, hostess and kitchen aprons prove true the old adage that beauty and style are timeless. Influenced by the romantic visions of a bygone era, and designed in vibrant colors, flirty patterns and figure flattering shapes, these fine quality, retro-chic cooking aprons make the perfect fashion accessory in or out of the kitchen.
Helena Steele had collected 20 th Century vintage aprons for years, enchanted by their amazing styles and nostalgic charm. These beautiful kitchen aprons symbolized the grace and beauty of a forgotten time. She visualized it was possible to preserve their heirloom characteristics while giving them a uniquely 21 st Century fit and appeal. It was time to re-focus on friends and family, and revive the fun of the "hostess" party.

Establishing a successful Kitchen Design firm, including manufacturing the custom kitchen cabinets she designs, was invaluable in launching the Jessie Steele line of vintage aprons with her daughter Claire.
Principles of balance and aesthetics apply whether you're designing an awesome kitchen, or a delightful kitchen apron. Helena and Claire create Jessie Steele vintage aprons using the same basic formula that's served her so well in all of her endeavors: a solid foundation, high quality materials, and a natural gift for expressing beauty.
