A Valentine's Giveaway...Flirty Aprons!

Aprons could save the world. I'm serious. Do you know how many laundry disasters have been averted by aprons? I am forever putting holes in my t-shirts from where my jeans rub against the counter when I do dishes or cook. *That shows how short I really am!* But when I wear my apron my shirts are blissfully hole-less. I have a really cute everyday apron I wear all the time:

Those are my cute teenager types that live here. It's hard to see in this picture but I ordered it from this little danish internet site because I couldn't live without that fabric. But aprons can be a great fashion statement as well. (Have you noticed the blog header? That illustrated apron is to die for!)

Usually when I cook on TV or teach a class there's one thing you can be sure of: I will be wearing some sort of sassy apron that goes somewhat with the seasons. Understand that when I say seasonal I don't mean a screen-printed Rudolph or pumpkins and vines on them. Nooooo. I mean cute fabric with contrasting ties in colors that either remind me of a holiday or fabric that I can't turn away from. Here are a few examples: Me with the Harmon's guys, Bob and Randy, at Thanksgiving at Good Things Utah Me at the KJZZ studio in March (photo credit by Billy DeMong--gold medalist!) Yet another fun time in the summer at Good Things Utah (apron from The Pleated Poppy)

  2. I like the Red and White for Valentine's Day. I never think to buy an apron, so I see something like this giveaway I think what the heck! I do tend to get dirty when I'm in the kitchen, so why not?! I love the color red, too!

  4. I love the blue/chocolate one and the pink/chocolate one. They are girly enough that I would feel like a woman in my household full of boys. :)

  5. I love the "Chic Pink" one! The colors are fabulous, and the little ruffle on the bottom is TOO CUTE!! I don't own an apron, and tend to stain many pieces of clothing due to my cooking "abilities". :)

  6. I really like scarlet blossom - I love the simple colours, with bright red highlights, and the three types of patterns which surprisingly work well. It's the flirtier of the two I liked best - the other was sassy red, which I liked for its intense colour blast and simple design.

  7. I really love the blue and brown one. It's frilly and flirty (two of my favorite things in an apron!) and the pattern/color combination is so great! I also like the fact that it covers. I have a fifties housewife sort of apron that I wear when I cook, but it doesn't cover my chest and I am so messy when I cook!

    Oh and the red and white one is good too. I just LOVE red and it would go great with my hair!:)

  8. I love the girls apron in Sweet Sunshine. Just reminds me to be happy and makes me smile. It would make me feel like $100 bucks while cooking.
