Mini "Apronisms" Book Giveaway


It's time to share my good fortune.
I am having a drawing for author EllynAnne Geisel's latest and cutest book, "Apronisms".
This sweet little book is the perfect size to tuck into one's apron pocket.
The moment I received my little book, I immediately made myself a cup of tea, then snuggled on the sofa with my kitties, sipping tea and reading my sweet little book.
My favorite (ok so I have several) section in this book can be found on page 11, It's about "Grace" and "Sharing", so in the true sense of sharing, I am having this drawing to "share" my good fortune.

To have your name dropped into my "Vintage Hat" for the drawing just leave me a comment on my blog, telling me which of your aprons is your favorite.
On Monday, March 10th I will have my darling husband draw a name from my hat and I will post who the winner is. You do not have to be an apronista, or even own an apron to have your name entered. Just tell me about an apron that makes you smile!

To get to know more author EllynAnne Geisel, (The Apron Book) and to learn about her love of vintage aprons visit her blog at,
Thanks for stopping by and entering. Good luck!

More Fun Projects.


I love my 2nd Hand Store chair...but it did not look like this when we brought it was painted black w/a white seat cover-ugly to say the least, but I knew it had personality,,,so my sweet heart of a hubby totally disassembled the chair, striped & sanded the chair then stained & reassembled it. I happen to have this fabric left from an other project. It and some new padding made a perfect seat cover.

The cute Bistro size Table Topper is a collaberation of talents...a dear sweet friend (Jessica) from MaryJanes Farm made the blocks & I assembled them. I also have a pot holder to match but forgot to include it in the photo. (click on the photo to get a close look).

Oh, and my sweet little "Sissygirl" kitty say's the underside of the chair looks nice too!

Busy lil' ol me....


I am having "Sew" much you can see.... the "colorful"(to say the least)lounger/P.J.'s are for fun. The denim vest is from some scrap denim fabric that was once a denim curtain panal. I will use it to pin my MJF & SOTF patches on.
The cute apron is from a fat quarter pattern...I love it.
The Felt Pins were a gift from my talented neighbor, Andria. In the last picture are pins I made years ago. My felt Turkey is missing an eye, poor thing! the Stocking is plastic canvas and the R/W/B Heart is fabric attached (w/wonderunder) to felt & decrorated w/ glitter & a star.
And of course, "Safety Pin" Pins.... be sure to click on the pic's to see them better.
Thanx for peeking....
