How cute are these aprons?! I love the Lucy one because of the two pockets and the tie around the front is cute too. I'd love to see one in brown and pale blue (or aqua).

Here's my we believe statement:
We believe a waist is a terrible thing to mind. (I can't claim that as original, I think it was Julia Child that said it but I still giggle when I hear it!)

I love the Lily Apron in brown.

My Statement holds true...


I thought of that and it's so true. We need to get out of our standard meal bubble and adventure out. Try something new. If you don't like then you don't like it but at least you can say you've had it. Who are we to judge food from different cultures. More people need to eat fish.

I'm making a plaque with that saying and puting it on my wall even if I don't win.

The "Lily" is so stinkin' cute in the lime and gray, it's very flattering and feminine! I agree with Kira, the girl who believes that these aprons could be titled "domestic lingerie," they definitely are sexy...A perfect way to get things sizzlin' in the kitchen at dinner time. haha! At least that's ok at my house, cause there's no kids around...yet!
