this is what I have been trying to share with you today
and on any other day,
you'd think that would be simple enough
but for some reason
so without further ado
(no, seriously, if you are actually reading this ~ that blasted gremlin did NOT get the best of me!)
...may I present to you dear readers
a most romantic
I sooo enjoyed making this,
as I had someone very special in mind for it
and every moment spent sewing and embellishing it
was pure joy!!
see the teeny tiny pearls scattered around
and the vintage lace edges
for just a bit more added romance?
`cause who doesn't just adore more ruffles
or vintage lace for that matter?!
and don't you love this gypsy brocante rosette flower
looking all fabulous pinned to the front
and what farm apron wouldn't just love to be worn
while hanging laundry on a clothes line in the warn sunshine,
or while gathering fresh chicken eggs
( a most convenient pocket is located in the front for just such an occasion!)
or even while picking those extra juicy berries growing out back
most especially for that perfect lattice top pie...
you know the one
...were the sweet fruitiness wafts from the window sill whilst cooling
oh how you taunt me more and more into your world...
and do you see that most lovely tag?
simply count your blessings
I even adore the unique way this apron ties in the back
as summers can get downright hhhhhottttt
(and humid if you live in the east ~ so sorry for yous)
and for me, the least amount of clothing on ~
I presented this to my dear mom for her june birthday
while I was back visiting
(yes, sometimes things just work out!!)
and suggested to her that upon my return
I'd like it to be covered with berry stains, laundry soap, and an occasional oopps egg goo
although not in that particular order
just maybe, the laundry soap would take care of it all...
~ but ~
my point is
and everytime she wears this,
I am with her,
at the cottage farmhouse,
performing those necessary, everyday tasks,
covering her with my love and adoration until I can hug and squeeze her once more!
maybe I should make another
I feel a give~away comin` on!!!!!
