EI Challenge #101 and WINNER for the EI #100 Giveaway

Welcome to Etsy Inspired Challenge #101. First of all, thank you for stopping by last week for the #100 EI blog hope and giveaway! We are thrilled that you join us and be part of this big milestone! The winner is announced at the end of this post. Our shop of the week is Lover Dover's Handmade Goodness (see here). This shop sells RETRO aprons, kids clothes and clothes. I have been watching Mad Man (see here) as it is my latest FAVORITE show. These clothing from Lover Dover's reflect the vintage aprons and dresses of the 50-60s. I can see some of the characters from Mad Man ( like Betty...when she was married to Don Draper!) wearing these!

Winner: Lucy Black and Red Apron (see here)
Sponsor:  Sassy Studios Designs (see here )
Winner - Four (4) digi images of the winners choice!
Here's the item that inspired me---I LOVE LUCY -retro 50s apron red BLACK POLKA DOT APRON with fifties ric rac details.
 Since it is such a lovely hostess apron, I thought of home, polka dots, red/black/white combo.
JUST SAYING HELLO
So can you see the inspiration? I am amazed at how the inspiration took me. At first, I felt really challenged, but the more I looked at the apron, I then realized how all obvious the clues were right in front of me. Do you ever feel that way?
I pop dotted the roof to give it a bit of dimension and added Glossy Accent to the window sill and door steps....I now see the possibilities for this house in Christmas!! Can you imagine that?
Now please go to the DT's blog for more inspiration.
I can't wait to see what you create!
