NOT Your Mother's Apron-Giveaway!!!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend celebrating the holiday with family and friends. We had day with little trauma, lots of food, and too much dessert!

So it is very fitting that this week, Not Your Mother's Apron has provided this lovely lilac floral patterned apron for giveaway! It has a wonderful sexy and slimming V-line neck and a waste accent for further definition and refinement. This apron is just right for spring and summer wear and will bring a light and spring feeling to you when you put it on.

Not Your Mother's Apron is run by stay at home mom, Sara, who is a mother of 3 small children with one more on the way. In fact she is due to have her next child any day now!

Sara says she is an incredibly messy cook, and since her husband loves to complain, she started to make aprons for fun and to battle the kitchen!

Beginning in March of 2006 Sara started out making an apron for herself. Inspired by an adorable vintage apron that was "shredded" by her youngest child, she tried to get the same feel from a new pattern but was unsuccessful. Finding the patterned apron uncomfortable and lacking a sense of fun, Sara experimented and figured out designing tricks to make the aprons comfortable and stylish. Now only following some portions of a pattern, Sara modifies designs herself coming up with fits that are modern and so-not-your-mother's-aprons! She can really say she makes custom aprons to suit your culinary mood!

To enter the GIVEAWAY of the lilac floral apron, browse Not Your Mother's Apron offerings and come back to make a comment on your favorite.

And as always, if you want 10 bonus super entries into the giveaway drawing, send in a photo of you or a family member in an apron. Include a mini apron story, what you like to cook, or some other tidbit about your photo in your email to me.

Entries close on Tuesday, April 21 at 12:00 midnight with the winner to be announced on Wednesday April 22th.

Good Luck Ladies!

I got this in an email and thought you might enjoy it!


I don't think our kids know what an apron is.

The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath,
but along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from
the oven.

It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.

From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven

When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids.

And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.

Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.

Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.

From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.

In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from t he trees.

When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.

When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.

It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace
that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes.

Send this to those who would know, and love the story about Grandma's aprons.

REMEMBER.........

Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool.

Her granddaughters set theirs on the kitchen counter to thaw.

All her aprons are amazing. I really liked her new one with no name, but the diner style ones are great too!

Knitnut,Karen said...

Personally, I like the apron that's un-named. I reminds me very much of an apron my grandma use to wear.

Mountain Woman said...

I like all of them but my two favorites were the "Envy" and the "Pampered Pooch" in lilac.

Do I get the 10 extra entries for my Apron God? If so, then I'd like them to go towards this entry.

Love this blog~!

I like the Domestic Diva apron. It reminds me of my Granny, who passed away 3 years ago.

JULIE said...

I really like the "Envy" one...especially in that green. I guess the closest one could get to that green in her current fabrics would be in the "Accent-Brown" material...

I'm not sure if I like Envy because of the color or style...both great!
ZaZa Cury has beautiful color and love the name, SO cute.

I like the sassy v-neck because I tend to get splatters way up high!!! Does that mean I'm a shorty?
