It’s a giveaway!

Back when I started this blog, it was just me wanting to share my favorite recipes and document them for my family.

I entered the foodie community and found so many wonderful new friends, all with the same passion for food.

We all have different styles of cooking, some healthy, some decadent, some gourmet, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, southern, Italian…

I’ve met people from all over the world through this blog.

And I love it! No matter what our style, we all share the same love for food, cooking and sharing.

And the holidays are coming, the season of giving!

A few months ago, I contacted Iris at Mimi’s Needle and Thread.

I’ve never met Iris in person but I met her on FB, and fell in love with her aprons.

I had to have one.

I love aprons, I counted the other day, and I own 24 of them.

In my mud room, where most people would keep coats, I keep all my aprons. Some are half aprons, most are full. We all love to wear them. It puts us in the “mood” for cooking and baking.

And they’ve come from everywhere. I love this one.

It’s a child’s apron that I found at a yard sale years ago. In fact it’s so small, it’s too small for my girls now.

So back to Iris, and her aprons.
They are beautiful!
I sent her an e-mail, told her what I was looking for.
She e-mailed back some fabric samples.
The choices were all so wonderful, it was too hard to decide.

So I let her decide.
And this is what she did!

It doesn’t come with the necklace or petticoat.

But it does make me want to wear pearls when I’m baking!

And the detail she put into it…

I’m in love with this apron!

And I ordered an extra, to giveaway, to one of you. And I checked tho postal rates, this giveaway is open to everyone, US, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia…

It may take a few weeks to arrive but that’s ok.

  27. I would love the apron, but I never win anything/thanks anyway. We do white trash a little bit different. We put Golden Grahams or Chex cereal and peanuts mix these together, melted a bag of milk choc. morsels and poured over the cereal(also add raisins if you like them). Get a big paper grocery bag , after you have stirred the choc into the cereal mixture put into the bag and pour a box of powered sugar into the bag and shake. Discard left over sugar, its a choc. white sugar good tasting treat..Probably not as good as yours I’m gonna try yours. Thanks for the recipe..

  28. I ♥ Aprons. This one is adorable. Thanks for such a fun giveaway!
