Celebrating Independence - Giveaway #1

Okay ladies, here's our first giveaway open to everyone who has joined or blogs about the Flirty Apron Swap prior to midnight PST on May 15, 2008. Not a participant yet? Join today!


Lana from Sassy Apron is giving away this gorgeous and flirty "I See Stars - Flirty Independence Day Apron" to one lucky lady!


I have been drawn to Lana's aprons for months! Lana's shop profile reads,
"
My name is Lana and I live in sunny Arizona. I am the designer behind these one-of-a-kind, beautiful vintage inspired aprons! I create the designs, cut the fabric and sew the aprons one by one! I am fascinated with fashion! I love the 20's flapper dresses and hats, the 50's Dior New Look skirts, the 60s mod dresses. I try to use these styles as an inspiration in my aprons. I cut the aprons' skirts on bias for a fuller look and I love to add ruffles and small details like rosettes or bows on them."

HOW TO ENTER:
All you have to do is visit Lana's
Sassy Apron Etsy Site and browse around, then come back here and leave a comment below telling me what your two favorite items are in her shop. If you would like to enter a second time, blog about this giveaway at your own site, then leave the link to your post in a second comment. And, you will be entered a third time if you post a swap button on your site (copy the code for the images from the right sidebar) and leave me a separate comment.

I will pick a random winner on May 16, while I'm assigning swap partners. Good Luck and Start Blogging!!

  56. Hi all,
    I almost missed out on this swap (I would have hated that), thanks for the reminders. I checked out Sassy Aprons site. All of her aprons are soooo wonderful, I kinda favored
    French Chic Polka and Tea Time Flirty Apron.
    Wouldn't it be great to win that oh so cute and flirty I See Star's apron.

  62. Hello. I am Lana with Sassy Aprons. I want to thank everybody for visiting my shop and for the nice words that each of you posted about my aprons on this blog. They put a smile on my face. I love creating and sewing sassy aprons. I know they are just aprons, but for me, they are a way to express myself. If I can add a little message with every apron, just a few words of wisdom (not necessarily mine), to show a little appreciation of the world we live in. I also want to say how lucky we are to live in this beautiful country. Thank you.
