When it comes to fashion, I should have been born in the 50’s. I LOVE swing dresses and skirts with puffy slips that make the bottom portion “poof” out. I also love aprons.
Have you ever tried wearing one while baking?
Next time you do give it a try, your world will be rocked!
It’s like wearing a pretty dish rag around your waist, and there is nothing better than wearing one that is girly, pretty, and that you wish was actually a skirt.
I follow @Candacecbure (aka - DJ on Full House/Fuller House), and about a month back she posted a picture of herself in an adorable apron and I immediately clicked on the link. I had never heard of @DaySpringsCards before, but I am so very glad that I do now!
DaySprings started off as a Christian card company and is now affiliated with Hallmark Cards (are we surprised at my love for them?) and they sell everything from cards, to devotionals (check out Candace Cameron Bure’s new devotional 100 days of Joy and Strength), to t-shirts and, you guessed it, APRONS!
They have so many styles and designs to choose from, I have my eye on this one (it's currently out of stock, but don't you worry, I have myself signed up for the email alert to let me know when it is back. Yup. It's like that) for Christmas but entering the summer season, the Pear-a-dise pattern caught my eye. I have worn it while cooking and baking and not only is it lightweight and sturdy, gosh darn it if I didn’t hum “Those Crazy, Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer” as I danced about the kitchen.
At this point I think I have five aprons (one of which my daughter made me in sewing class!) and I can't wait to collect more. And for those of you who are scoffing, "Aprons?! Ha!" I feel that's because you haven't tried wearing a pretty one. Case in point, my sister. She laughed, she ridiculed, until I made her put on a cream and grey apron with ruffles on the top. Now when she comes over to bake can you guess what she asks for? You guessed it, "her" apron.
Happy Baking (and singing!) everyone!
This is how I like to envision myself when I put on the apron.
This is how I actually look.
Doesn't my sister look happy in "her" apron? (we were making raviolis from scratch. And yes, they were amazing.)
