Romantic Shabby Aprons

I love wearing romantic aprons when I entertain.  These aprons are all made by my friend Annie G

Mary Rose Funky
I am having a giveaway and my friend Annie G is going to give one of my readers an
Apron of their choice!

Captured in time
That's right, you pick any apron 

Rose garden tea ruffled
You don't have to be a follower 

(of course I won't turn anyone away)
Vintage Style Flapper

Maybe you would rather have a Ruffles and Roses Market Bag


Or a Shabby pink pin cushion


Annie has been sewing her whole life and makes all of her lovely creations in her cottage.
I first met Annie when I saw her website and thought I would take a chance and ask her where she got her gorgeous fabric, she told me, and we have been friends every since.
Annie's business has grown by word of mouth

Annie's attention to detail and extraordinary ability to coordinate fabrics keeps customers coming back for more.

All you have to do is pick one apron, market bag, or any of Annie's other lovely creations from this post or Annie's store and leave a comment with your choice.
( Mommy and me aprons not included in this giveaway)  

Choose wisely
What you choose in your comment is what you win!!!

 A random drawing will be held March 28th 

Drawing closed Congratulations to Stacy@ Stacy's ShabbyShoppe

Pressure...Pressure...Pressure!

Good Luck!

Createology said...

Carol I am blown away with the amazing generous give away you are offering. I fell in love with Annie G's cottage and her sewing style of aprons, bags, pin cushions and fabric selections. I cannot stop drooling over the "Springtime in Paris" retro waist apron. I can see me wearing this to the market and any other errand shopping as it is so fabulous! So that is my choice is I am fortunate enough to be selected. Happy Springtime...(in Paris?)...

Susan said...

Carol what a privilege it would be to win one of the fabulous items. I would choose that beautiful Captured in Time apron!! It was really difficult to choose which I liked best!

Stacy's Shabby Shoppe said...

A ruffles and roses market bag would be my choice! What a fabulous giveaway! (*_*)

Cindy Cade said...

Choose wisely? Any of her creations would be a treasured heirloom. I finally ended with the Ruffles And Roses Market Bag 1 or 2 as I can see me popping in my Nook, bottled water, fruit, phone etc. and hauling it along to the park or other kids days out. It is so pretty I might just take it everywhere. :-) Her aprons were gorgeous too!

Mary said...

Hi Carol, Oh my gosh, what a very generous and wonderful giveaway! I would have to say that my favorite apron, after having a very hard time choosing just one... would be the Vintage Style Flapper Apron. Please enter me into your giveaway, I would be so thrilled if I could own one of Annie's aprons.

Kath' said...

What a beautiful giveaway. My BFF and I are Tea best friends and we have always dreamed of things that are made out of the Rose Garden Tea Ruffled material. Oh My it's 2DIE4. I would Cherish this apron forever. I think an apron can give you a personality and this one is so ME ME ME. Thanks for the honor of maybe winning something so gorgeous.

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Wow! What a giveaway! Thank you for introducing us to Annie. If I won, I'd love the apron with the red trim and some cherries on it. I forgot the name of it. I saw it on her site.

Debbie said...

They're all wonderful! I would choose the Rose Garden Tea Ruffled Bib, I think. I like all the bib ones the best.

That's mainly because I would wear it, and I'm a bodice slob. LOL

Hello sweet friend! If I got to choose...I will be choosing the ruffles and roses market bag! With a bag this cute to take shopping, I think every trip would turn out fabulous! I am going shop around her darling creations! Wow, thank you for sharing, what a generous offer!
Squishy hugs,
Olivia

Jen said...

I love the vintage style flapper girl apron! It is way too cute. Everything that is in her shop is super sweet. I love baking, especially making red velvet cupcakes. However, I have no apron so when I make them I have to put a towel around my shirt because then red dye would get everywhere. Thanks for the awesome contest!
