Fabulous Apron Finds Friday

Yes I know, posting late in the day seems to be becoming a trend. *sigh*

Anyhoo, today is all about aprons! :o) Have you noticed how much aprons have come back in style? It's not just for us "vintage apron fanatics" anymore. It's become soooo "tres chic"! I've always liked aprons myself. I have some vintage ones including one that is made out of a flour sack and hangs in my pantry. Hmmm, guess I should have taken a pic? :oP

So without further ado, here are some of my favourite new apron designers.

Heavenly Hostess has so many wonderful apron designs from halter to cocktail to gardening, you just have to check them out! Here is one of my faves which happens to be a gardening apron, however I don't have a garden and I'd buy it anyway. :o)

Sommer Designs doesn't have as many choices but what she does have is simple, classic and fresh. I find it hard to choose a favorite since most of her aprons are made from my favourite designer fabrics!

Another apron designer I love is Megan of Creative Outlet Designs! I've been coveting her cherry polkadot apron for some time now. Drool!

And last but not least is Carolyn's Kitchen. Carolyn West(as seen in Adorn) offers vintage-inspired aprons and matching glove sets. How fun is that! Don't miss the giveaway to win this fun Dorothy apron & glove set over at The Apronista!

Other places to find hip handmade aprons are ETSY & eBay. Have fun and have a fantastic weekend! :o)


7 Random Things..Betty..and ah..aH..AHHH-CHOOO!

Yes, it's true...I'm sick AGAIN! Can someone please stop the ride, I want to get off! *sigh* I took Sugar & Spice to a gym where they have Tot Time on Fridays. This was the 1st time for us so of course we got sick. Ugh! Luckily Mr. Smarty Pants who catches colds at the drop of a hat and was still recovering from the last one did not pick up this particular bug. *whew* Maybe his immunities are finally starting to kick in?? I certainly hope so. I think mine are pretty much gone for good. At least we'll all be well for Thanksgiving. *crosses fingers* :o)

Ok so on to the 7 Random Things about me. I know I've been tagged before but hey I'm sure I can think of more things right? *wink*

I was tagged this time by Megan of Creative Outlet Designs. (I was actually tagged like a week ago but, ya know, sickness and all......)

Here's the rules you must abide by if you're tagged:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

So here goes:
1. I wanted to be a ballerina when I was a little girl. And yes, I was in love with Mikhail Baryshnikov. *swoon*

2. I like fantasy art, especially fairies! One of my fave fairy artists is Amy Brown.

3. My fave coffee flavor is peppermint mocha, or some variation of mint and chocolate anyway. yum!

4. In college I dated a number of musicians, in particular guitar players, and I bought my own electric guitar and tried to learn to play myself. In case your wondering, I do not play or own a guitar anymore. :oP

5. I'm claustrophobic. Nuff said!

6. I'm a "closet" photographer, I just need a better camera. Not that mine is bad...

7. During my twin pregnancy I was really into poker, especially Texas Hold'em. I played an XBox poker game alot when I was bedridden but I haven't touched it since.

Michele of MJD Boutique
Ellie of Little Wanda Crafts
Karyn of Fat Orange Cat
