i also have an etsy shop where i peddle my wares: holiday buntings, aprons and other things...if you would like, i just started a facebook page for my etsy store that you can become a fan of to get exclusive discounts, see new items when they arrive and be privy to facebook only giveaways.

so here's what i whipped up for this giveaway:

a cute half apron in light pink paisley with black polka dot waist & ties and a black floral pocket

i added a loop at the waist to hold your tea towel



(the pocket up close)

or in the front...

  • length from top of waist band to bottom hem - 22"
  • waist band - 23"
  • ties - 39"
  • 100% prewashed cotton fabrics


all you have to do to enter is leave a comment...that's it...no extra comments for becoming a follower of my blog, becoming a fan of my etsy facebook or naming your first born after me...i like to keep it simple!

REMEMBER, I MUST BE ABLE TO EMAIL YOU IF YOU ARE THE WINNER, MAKE SURE THAT IS POSSIBLE, either leave your email address in your comment, or make certain that you aren't a no-reply blogger~

contest open thru friday, december 17th  8pm est...

I love this apron! I've always wanted an apron that starts at the waist instead of going all the way up. This one is almost too lovely to wipe your hands on LOL! I also think the tea towel loop is genious. Thanks for sharing.

Beverly said...

AZviaTx said...

So, why don't ALL aprons have the little loop for a tea towel? That's one of the most practical things I've seen in a long time. Good on ya! Also, in the upper left hand corner of your blog there's a Woody Wagon: who's is it? Please say yours! That's my all time dream car. You know, for when I win a huge lottery and can buy any vintage car I want. It'll look something like that one! By the by, that really is one cute apron. Tina
