***Presents and Treasures***

My cousin always chooses the BEST presents!
Won't I have FUN! Thank you, Cindy!


I found this pretty vintage apron with all the pretty embroidery at a thrift store.


At the top it is hand embroidered and I wasn't sure
what it said until I took the picture!



Look at the beautiful detail!

Oh MY! I bought that same apron at a thrift store too! Except the one I bought had a different name across the top. I can't remember what it was, I gave the apron to a friend. Cool!

Oh, beautiful! I have the same book and love it! And I collect aprons --- I just love the variety and differences in style, fiber, embellishment, etc. Your Portugal apron is beautiful!

Thank you for the sweet comments you leave on my blog. They keep me writing!
