Bon Appétit

One day a package arrived at my house
It was from a blogging friend
Just a little 'surprise' for me said
Susan is this incredible baker who makes the most amazing food ever!  She also makes these adorable aprons and has a give away each month for one.
This is the April giveaway apron!
She is also the maker of the apron that is on a journey,
I am sister #8 and I must say I loved my time with the Apron.  
It is still traveling and is with Finding Home who blogged about it today!

Susan and I have become good blogging friends and so when this package arrived at my door I was so excited to see this..........
My very own special apron! 
Susan said when she saw these fabrics she knew she had to make this for me! 
 I love it of course!
This will be me in September
(well without the blond hair and the killer body but you can't have everything!)

J'Adore Paris, J'Adore this apron and J'Adore Susan!

I can't thank you enough for this special surprise! 
I promise to get a photo of me wearing it! 

I'm joining 


Wishing you JOY,

Linda

I love aprons and wear them all the time. That is such a pretty one. I get them all stained though. I am messy.

What could be better than two surprises! The Paris one is perfect and so fun! Get out your French cookbooks!!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Linda,
That apron is PERFECT for you! Now you can start preparing your stomach for all that delicious food from France. LOVED their croissants!! Also the baguettes and cheese. And the escargots - dip the baguettes in the escargot butter. . . . .DON"T eat the tar tar!! I missed a day in Switzerland because of the tar tar the night before at our departure dinner!

Mary Clark said...

So awesome you now have your Parisian apron, how perfect! Hope you'll bake us some French pastries while wearing it! Mary

Would I have to actually cook to wear an apron?

I love aprons, but cooking doesn't like me.

What a fun present to receive.

WOWSER! You do indeed have a good friend! Now a really important question.....where are the little ones for Charlie and Mr. Toes??!?! Hmmmmm. Better give them an extra 10 treats to make up for this oversight. Just suggesting ;)

Purrs and hugs,

Well, this traveling apron sis is SOOOOOooo jealous. ;) It's gorgeous, Linda, and Susan is such a doll for making these beautiful aprons to lighten our little corner of the world. Receiving that magic apron was so timely for me last year and it is one of my favorite blogging moments.
Love this pattern.
Enjoy, sis. ;)
