A is for Apron ...... D is for Disorganized .....

A is for Apron (as in the one I promised to show you all a couple of days ago ..... because I really, really did finish sewing it on Monday .... but , for me D is for Disorganized ... and I just didn't get a chance to get back to Blogland until today .... and now I bet you're thinking "oh sure... that's a likely story ... you really weren't finished making the apron and you needed a couple more days .....")

Well, anyhow ..... (drum roll please .....) here it is !!!!!

this is how it looks hanging on a hanger ....

....and this is how it looks with my new red shoes in my kitchen ....

....and this is how it looks with my new red shoes in my kitchen with my handy dandy red fire extinguisher ....

...and this is how it looks with my new red shoes while standing on the toilet with the matching red hand towels hanging right there ....(I really have to get a full length mirror so I don't have to stand on the toilet or hire a better photographer ....)

Anyhow, you're probably tired of looking at that apron by now , but stay tuned because there's a matching chef hat (just finished it about a half hour ago but I didn't take any pictures yet ..... and I'm sure again you're thinking "yea right... you're not finished with the chef hat ... you're just saying that ....") Also, there's an apron extravaganza coming soon (pictures I took of some of my mother's aprons ) ..... so get some rest then come back for another visit!

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Love your new apron and matching shoes!

Adorable!!! The bows really add to the whole ensemble and the shoes are the perfect touch! Does Miss Kitty have an apron and chef's hat, too? Of course, then she'd want to cook - maybe not a good idea. Cheers.

Gosh, that's one of the best pictures I've seen in a long time - the picture of you, your apron, red towel, red shoes in the toliet room. Love, Love, Love your sense of humor. Thanks for your wonderful posts! Your apron looks great. I'm almost tempted to make one, but then I remember that I don't cook. My hubby is the cook. Wonder if he would like an apron in red?
:))))

Look at you and your cute self!!! Love,love, love that apron!!! Adorable!! Nice shoes too. Crazy girl you!!!

Mona said...

That apron is gorgeous!! I think it's a fashion statement when your shoes match your apron.:)You'd best keep an eye out. Miss Kitty might just tie an apron string to her bumper and drag that beauty off somewhere!! LOL!

Apron extravaganza...I can hardly spell that! Oh I just cannot wait. I hope you have your dad modeling some of them like he did with the hats. That was a favorite MBIAJ moment for me.

Backt ot the Apron, I just love the cheeful cherry print. I am going to snatch some of that up soon. Next time you make a hat, PLEASE tutorialize it. I want to do one for my nephews, Mare. I wish you lived closer and I could hop on over and you could show me! How is the grad's quilt coming along?
