BYW Student Art Week - Inspired Home by City Chic Country Mouse


It's Friday already and the last day of BYW Student Art Week. I may have to do this again because there are so many amazingly creative people in my class that there is more than enough beauty to keep us busy for a year if I featured one of them each day. 

Today I am happy to present City Chic Country Mouse, designers of beautiful and necessary items for the home. The philosophy behind these designs is to make household chores more fun. How can you not smile seeing these gorgeous fabrics?

City Chic Country Mouse is a mother-daughter pair, Jamie and Carmen, who teamed up Mom's great sewing skills with Daughter's color and design aesthetic to create items you need and should be able to love and enjoy for your home. I love their ironing board covers.

 Ironing is a necessary evil in my book, but if you're going to do it you should enjoy it, right? I know my ironing board would love one of these, although I'd be hard pressed to pick just one. My ironing board was passed down from my grandmother. I love having something that was so intregral to her life, care of her family, sewing projects and so much more.

When I first got it, it would not open and close and I thought it might be on it's way to a dumpster, but then I tried oiling the hinges and since then it's been a trusted friend through many sewing and ironing projects. I think the sturdy old gal would love a new frock.

Jamie and Carmen also design pot holders, aprons, scissor sleeves and sewing machine covers. You can visit their Etsy shop and see their blog City Chic Country Mouse to learn all about them and see their creations.


It's been a great week of creativity from the BYW classmates. Thank you all for sharing the unique beauty that your talents and vision bring! Lovely readers hope you've enjoyed getting to know some new-to-me talents. BYW classmates, I wish you the greatest success and hope to see much more of you in the future!

Wow, those products are so gorgeous! I loathe ironing but if I had one of those covers I might keep the board out just to look at!
