This thank you goes out to Rita! I received a lovely full apron with its own record and poodle, a green lunch tote, and some dish towels. I love all of the embroidery you used, especially Strawberry Shortcake. I will post pictures of the apron at a later date when I have better lighting. Thank you again for making my first Flirty Apron Swap so much fun.

It’s been kind of crazy the last couple weeks and it occurred to me that I never properly thanked KAT for the awesome apron and package of goodies! Slap me up the side of the head I tell ya! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
This gal rocks, I tell ya. First the apron. I ♥ this beautiful apron!
The detail is amazing..the binding and pockets are out of chicken wire fabric. Where on earth Kat did you find that fabric?? And the vintage soups, pots and on the pocket
this cutey pie applique of a chicken/rooster…Sometimes I can’t tell the difference but I ♥ both!
As if this would not be enough, Kat had more goodies in the box!
Rooster & Chicken salt and pepper shakers (on my mantle they are so durn cute!), a DVD of Men in Black TWO…which we did NOT have, bonus!!..and a smellicious candle from Kat’s new candle collection from her shop called RUSTIC HOME and I love it too, its a great, homey scent but not overpowering..I will definitely be ordering it from her when she announces the collection! And the recyclable bag is wonderful, these are awesome, I have one that I keep in the car and this one will stay in the house.
Kat, thank you again I love it all..♥

To my partner: The apron is wash and wear ready. Will not shrink stretch or fade. Don't be afraid to wear it. It is built to last. Machine wash and dry (low). The dish cloths are also made to use in the kitchen or bath. They wash up great and can be bleached if needed. The cool thing is that they will never get that yucky mildew smell like other dish cloths. If you are not familiar with knitted dish cloths they will shrink dry and stretch out when they are wet. The gloves are LATEX FREE so no worries there AND they will not make your hands sweat or get that yucky smell either. Use them anywhere, inside or outside. Just rinse and hang dry.
Hope you enjoy...

To my sweet partner, I am sorry this is late..I am still waiting for the tuck in that was supposed to be here a week ago. Never mind, your package will be in the mail this morning and on it’s way to YOU. WHEN the tuck in arrives I will mail it right out to you.
I hope you enjoy the package I put together for you and your sweet little ones, just a little treat for them. Here is a preview for ya!
That’s all the preview you get right now..I hope you enjoy the goodies I put together for you!

This apron begun its life as 4 lovely linen (love the weight of the fabric) dishtowels:-) It's amazing what you can do with dishtowels, binding and a little navy fabric. I hope my partner likes it.
The 50's one was to do with food ....... I'm pretty glad I wasn't around to enjoy the gastronomic delicacies of the decade!!!
The 80's one paid hommage to the music and bad fashion of that decade - this was however the decade of my teens:-)
The 21st century item, acknowledged our busy, on the go lifestyles, as well as the trend to recycle and reuse.
Thanks Shawnee for another fun swap ......... Halloween to follow - can't wait!!!!!
