Blurb and Beautiful new "Diner Apron Collection"

Oh looky, looky! I've made it into a magazine! Our local glossy, Richmond Magazine, did an article on one of my favorite stores: House of Lukaya! I have a lot of Modern June items there. The store is in Richmond's Shockoe Bottom district. If you’re local, you must go and see Lucretia -- she carries her own clothing line and body products, as well as great locally hand made jewelry, soap and soy candles. Also check out my friend’s tie-dye baby cloths -- they are “TO DYE FOR”. Too many fun things to mention, so just go and shop!

Here's what my little blurb in the magazine says...

“Kelly McCants' line, Modern June, is all about vintage inspired pieces for the hip housewife. Her handmade aprons keep outfits neat around the house, but look cleverly cute if guests arrive early or unexpectedly.”

Cherrylicious! That is what I call it! All right not really! Not really here is the new Diner Collection from Modern June! Yum Yum! I showed this collection to my dear friend, pseudo mom and neighbor Janet to day and she said it best. She said something like this "It is what you want you business to be". Yes indeed, I agree! I started out in May of last year buying up old vintage aprons with the idea of selling them at our local farmers market. I quickly started making my own. This is exactly what I was hoping to make! I am so thankful for all the creative juices that are on running high! There is so much more to come you should see my pile of unfinished goods. Yikes, I am having such a blast! I have listed the line over at Modern June ~ Etsy

This apron was my inspriation, this is for M.E.'s 6 birthday! Her Dad works at home so M.E. goes up and takes his order everyday for lunch just like at the diner! Lynn, her Mom and I worked together to make this super retro apron just perfect! Check out Lynn's craft blog.

Happy Birthday M.E.!

Want one too, I made extras! I'll have them listed soon on Esty.
