Just finished

This apron was just finished up for a swap and sent out in the mail to it's new owner.
It's for a Hot Mama Fiesta Apron Swap hosted by Val in celebration of Cinco deMayo. Her rules were 1 apron, 1 Mexican recipe, and 1 other Mexican. I went with a bright orange, green, and yellow apron, 2 recipe cards, a box of Hot Tamales candies. I know, I know, the Hot Tamales candies were not very original at all! But I think the apron is kind of cute and bright for a Fiesta!!

Then a few weeks back I sent out a swap for Winter Baubles & Basics. The theme was to send kitchen towels and other items to refresh your partners kitchen. My partner wanted vintage with red, beige, and toile. Her is the stash I sent her.
I added lace to red kitchen towels. I made her a red toile print apron with matching lace from the kitchen towels. Also in her package was 1 rose flowered cup/saucer, red salad bowl, several kitchen gadgets, and a little salad recipe book I found at an outlet for $1, and a cotton kitchen towel with embroidery on it. She was so excited and surprised at all the goodies!!!

I received in return from her a set of bright colorful orange, green and white strip kitchen towels, a cute orange metal collander, a vintage glass taper candle stick, and a few other kitchen goodies. I have lost the picture of my goodies, but I loved my whole package too.



  1. Gin - The Mexican apron is very festive indeed ! Makes you want to clap your hands and say 'ole' And, I love the 'toile' apron as well. I still say all those aprons are much too pretty to use (wear) :-) I like the idea of how ya'll use your swap ideas to be very beneficial for one another - like the kitchen towels - what a grand idea !

  2. Hi, Gin! I think hot tamales are very original! The apron looks very fun and "flower child". Glad you're enjoying your swaps! ♥


Tell me something!
