aprons!

The lovely ZootsuitMama has asked everyone to show off their aprons. I love aprons, so how could I say no? Let's see yours!!

I made this one for Wardrobe Refashion out of some thrift store sheets. Pattern is Simplicity 8698.

Next one is Orla Kiely for Target. Not made by me, not vintage, but I love it.






The next three are thrifted. I'm a sucker for vintage fabrics.
















How about you? Do you use aprons/have a favorite? Looking forward to seeing everyone else's- thanks, Zoot!

road trip part 2 (or "everyone I know has a big but")

Spring road trip itinerary included a stop at Cabazon, CA home of the World's Biggest Dinosaurs!

What's inside Dinny the apatosaurus (the artist formerly known as brontosaurus)? Why, a gift shop of course!! I bought a snow globe & a smashed penny for my collections.
You have to pay admission to go into the exhibit, but it's worth every (smashed) penny if you love a good roadside attraction.











While you may or may not agree with the views presented at the attraction, all I am going to say is: DUDE, DINOSAURS! Plus, you can go upside Mr. Rex and pretend you're Pee-wee.










Tell me about your big 'but'.
