This Thanksgiving, we would like to take the time to express our deepest appreciation to those of you who take time from your busy schedules to hang out with us here on our blog and to everyone who has supported Pretty in Gingham.  We are truly thankful for all of you!


It has been so much fun to share our creations and to challenge ourselves to come up with new ways we can improve upon our products.  We have some really exciting plans and ideas for the upcoming year and can’t wait to share them with all of you.


We hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday with your family and friends.  And don’t forget to support small businesses on Small Business Saturday!

Fall is in the air

Living in Southern California for all of my life, I’ve never really been exposed to four different distinct seasons the way those in other parts of the country are.  To Southern Californians, the only real difference between fall and summer is that the evenings cool down enough to open up the windows and let in a blast of cool, crisp air.  Even though we’ve had still had to turn the air conditioning on a few times in the past few weeks, the nights have cooled down dramatically and we’ve even taken to wearing light sweaters when taking our puppy out for a walk.  To us, that means that fall is definitely in the air!

And now that Halloween has come and gone, I can’t wait for Thanksgiving and all of the yummy goodies that come along with this most indulgent of holidays.

This apron in particular reminds me a great deal of fall, Thanksgiving and the fun family time we have to look forward to during the holidays.  There’s  something about the color combination of warm golden orange paired with pops of bright crimson and calming olive green that brings to mind the beautiful color of leaves that are falling from trees around this time and warm, delicious comfort food shared with loved ones.


Hoping you are all enjoying this time of year as much as I am!

New Item Alert: Potholders!

With just a few days left until our last public craft show before the Holidays, we thought it would be a great time to officially announce our newest Pretty in Gingham item: potholders!



These potholders feature fun fabrics and adorable designs on both sides and are filled with a special protective layer that will protect your hands when grabbing hot items out of the oven.  They can even be used as trivets or heatpads to protect surfaces like a table top from a hot dish.



IMG_1300Pair our brand new potholders with one of our signature aprons or dishtowels to create the perfect holiday gift!


Stop by and visit us this weekend!  We would love to see you there!

Keep cool with KoolNeck!

Because it’s been so stinking hot this year in Southern California and because sometimes it’s utterly unbearable and because we figured it would be better to do something about it than to sit here and complain, we decided to keep create our brand new KoolNeck product!


KoolNeck is a fun, fashionable way to stay cool no matter what it is you are up to!  All you have to do is soak the band in water to activate the safe, nontoxic polymer crystals then wear them around your head or neck.  As the moisture from the crystals evaporates, the KoolNeck band will reduce your body temperature leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.  Keep a second KoolNeck in the fridge or an ice chest to swap out with the one you are wearing after it reaches body temperature.


KoolNeck uses:
– Reduces risk of heat or sunstroke
– Relief for headaches, migraines, fever, insect bites, sprains, swelling, minor sports injuries
– Great for yard work, gardening, hiking, fishing, concerts, camping, jogging, cycling, construction, exercise
– Can also be used on pets

Even Allie loves her KoolNeck!

We’ll be featuring our brand new KoolNeck at our upcoming craft fair in on Sunday November 2.  Get all the details here.  We would love to see you there!
