Sweet Southern Style
Altered Apron Part 1.
It is always fun to have a little bit of escapism from our day to day lives.
So just lately I have been participating in an Altered Apron Swap.
I was so glad to be asked to participate because I have missed doing these swaps and the good thing was that Heather and Stephanie put a collection of bloggers together that all had similar taste therefore we were all matched very well. I SURE WAS !!!!
I was practically hitting the ceiling with excitement when I heard
Jenn of Sweet Candy Creations was making an apron for me ~
I had always wanted to have Jenn in a partner swap for a long time. So I was extremely excited when I found out it was her. I was equally honoured to find out I was making for Stephanie ~she is new to blogging and one of the organisers of the swap so I wanted to do something extra special for her.
I was squealing with delight when I saw the postman coming up my path with my parcel. There was no mistaking who it was from ! :0)))
and tied with beautiful ribbon ~ what a colour ~ and the rose too.
I will keep these just like this.
Jenn had asked me what sort of thing I would like and of course I wanted something uniquely Jenn ~ I wanted her to have fun and not worry. I know what she is capable of and wanted all the whimsical, fun, innocent, frou frou, blingee Southern Charm that she could muster up.
She did not disappoint me. A beautiful Southern belle, white picket fence pocket, frou frou in the prettiest colours and bling. It is all sooo stunning and everything that I wanted ~ see my link to Jenn above because her photo's are just gorgeous and way way better than what I was able to do.
Jenn you really did make the most gorgeous apron for me, I will always remember you and all your Super Sweet Southern Style.
I promise to wear it everywhere except in the Kitchen ..... ha ha
For the apron I was making for Stephenie ...... well you will just have to wait .
