Mon Nouveau Tablier! - { My New Apron! }


I have never been one to use an apron whilst cooking. I'm more of a lick your fingers as you go kinda cook, wiping the leftovers on a manky tea towel [manky (man-kee) adj. gross, disgusting, vile, covered in food...also made up!] ! But now with being a Mumma and the associated role modeldom (I know, a made up word again!) that comes with such a profession, I feel I need to be a little more Martha Stewart in the kitchen.



And thanks to Sophie of Chez Sophie I will now look trés fetching while I'm at it. My apron arrived the other day and I absolutely love it. Thanks so much Soph!



Such a delightful fabric and big roomy pockets...big enough to hide a manky old tea towel! Old habits and all!!!


Also a huge merçi to Sarah of Red Gingham for organising the whole apron swap. What a lovely time I've had!!

That's just adorable Steph! Lucky, lucky you. It's exactly what I imagine you would wear, just from all the things I've read and seen on your blog! Hope so anyhoo. The fabric is divine, esp the part with the polka dots and cherries.
Ha! The word verification is vista! How fitting is that?

That is one beautiful apron. Lucky you and well done Sophie. I too have a wonderful apron from Sophie from another swap and I have to keep my eye on it as my daughter thinks it's awesome.
Have a good weekend.

You'll look very swoosh cooking up a storm in the kitchen now Steph. I didn't wear one until my sister-in-law bought me one for mother's day, it's come in very handy keeping my clothes nice and clean and free from food. (lol) Very sweet apron, looks like a fun swap. xo

You'll look so pretty and colourful all dressed up in your new apron while baking some treats. No more nasty teatowels or should I say....mankee!

I love it, I tend to have pretty dirty tops while cooking and George (poodle)is right under foot waiting for my ever present spillage!
