giveaway: reyart apron



Reya is a self-taught artist living in the Netherlands. her handiwork is beautiful. her designs and minimal approach to art reminds me of nature; pure and simple. reya creates fabulous aprons, perfect to wear while making art or baking pie or shaking out the rugs. i love the magpie linocut, printed with navy blue fabric paint. this would be the kind of gift i would want to keep for myself. i know lots of ladies who would leap for such a pretty and industrious apron.

whether you plan to give it to yourself or someone else, place a comment to enter to win. comments are open until saturday / april 25 / midnight / mountain time. a random winner will be announced after the weekend.

thank you, reya.
be sure to visit her etsy shop & flickr to see more pretty things.
