Tutorial Tuesday with The Empty Nest!

Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday, your opportunity to Teach Me Stuff!

We've had a last minute switcheroo with our Tuesday sponsor, but never fear, Janet from The Empty Nest has come to our rescue featuring her very own Sexy Milkmaid Apron!

If you are new here, this party is for your weekly tutorials. What counts as a tutorial? Anything to "teach me stuff" counts - a recipe, a kid's craft, a DIY project, how you got your baby to sleep through the night ... I'm not picky. (My weekly tutorial can be found right here.) Just link up below so we can all hop over to learn something new.

Now, on to this week's sponsor, Janet from The Empty Nest, featuring her new "Milkmaid" series of couture aprons. Couture? Aprons? Oh yes, you'll see!

Never has an apron been so beautiful, so sexy, such a work of art:

Janet's lovely half aprons are all fashioned from upcycled pillow cases, tablecloths, pillow shams and other thrift store treasures. They are then thoroughly cleaned, cut up, and put back together in a whole new way.

Chic embellishments are then added - yo-yo's, vintage buttons or maybe antique lace and doily's...Oh, just look at it up close! Squeal!

As Janet says, "Greet your man at the door after work wearing only one of these and I guarantee he won't care what you cooked for dinner...or even if you cooked at all!" Uh huh, she went there, and I love her for it! Check out her shop The Empty Nest to view her entire collection. Shower season is fast approaching, imagine a new bride opening one of these at her shower, how about for your best girlfriend's birthday? Always thinkin', people!

So, do I have you all in a lather over these lovely aprons? For your chance to win one of your own, just link up below. It's a party, baby!
