Blue Monday/ Susan Winget Blue!

It's Blue Monday yet again! This week I wanted to show off some potholders I had purchased many years ago. I don't know where I got them, but probably at a craft fair. I just loved these Susan Winget designs! These just say "home" to me! Also, at the time I bought these, I was living in a blue house.







In a previous post, I used some Susan Winget fabric as a backdrop.


For those who have never heard of Susan Winget, she is a designer who is an incredible artist. I first noticed her work probably in the early '90s. I have collected her fabric, her crafts, her wallpaper, and borders for my old house. She has so many products that it's hard to keep up with all she creates, including calendars, stationary, dishware, ornaments...basically whatever you can think of, she has a product with her art on it!

I found these images in Google. Here is a wonderful mailbox cover with some patriot red, white and blue! I have seen this before and didn't realize it was her work. I am thinking about getting this for my mailbox!


Here is another example of her art for Christmas! Aren't these the cutest Santas?


At my old house, I had a kitchen with blue counters, and her wallpaper, by the way. I so badly wanted this cannister set! It would have been perfect.


Please check out the work of Susan Winget on her website. I also found out while creating this post that she is a blogger right here in Blogspot! You can find her here! I'm certainly going to pay her a visit, and I hope you do too!

Oh, and to those of you who love roosters, and I know you are many, she has some wonderful creations for you!

I, too, have liked her work for a long time. In fact, I once made a table cloth and window toppers for my kitchen out of the same blue/white check you showed here.
Thanks for telling us of her site..I'll go visit.

I love the whole idea of the Blue Monday. How did it start? I would love to do a post on it but I am not crafty and I would probably take it in a whole different direction.. lol!

Bridget said...

Kady, Have you seen my baby post yet? I've had several people guess that your picture is me.
I'm not posting peoples guesses until after all the guesses are in so come by when you have some time.

Cute stuff! I love the potholders. Just one more cool thing about blogging~ you always learn stuff. I've always seen her things but never knew that it was an "artist" and that she had a "line" of stuff!

Joy said...

I love her art work and the colors she uses are great too! Very nice.

Elizabeth said...

I didn't get a chance to stop in last Mon. I love Susan Winget, too! I have a couple of her books, and I subscribe to her newsletter. Where did you get those great santa and snowmen?
