My First (and probably last) Giveaway Win

About a month ago, I entered a random drawing contest for a free apron from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures. I enjoy reading Lynn's blog--her recipes are easy and she has beautiful pictures.

Lynn was giving away an apron via a friend, Emily. Emily has a store on Etsy, and makes these lovely aprons (be sure to check them out). For a shot at one of the aprons, you had to leave a comment on Lynn's blog post about which apron you liked the best, and the winner would be chosen at random. I decided to enter the contest, thinking there was no way I'd win, because I've never won any contests, let alone one online.

Well, lo and behold, I actually won. Only the apron I picked out had already been sold. Well, Lynn contacted Emily, and she very graciously made another one in the same "retro" style, but with a different fabric.

What do you think? I really love it!

Believe it or not, I actually have a brown dress and heels that complimented my new apron perfectly (not that I'm actually going to cook in this get-up, but I feel pretty!). Now...where's that string of pearls?

That is a really cute apron. I've seen patterns for the vintage styles & they look so fun! My MIL has given an 'apron' talk to women's groups and my daughter has helped model - they have a great time with the vintage aprons.

That is a very cute apron. I think I like that one better than the one you picked originally. Emily does such great work.
