{Lovely Finds} Ode to the Apron

Oh, I really hope you were not expecting an uber
clever lyric poem about protective garments.
That would’ve been swell, wouldn’t it?
Too bad my weekend was packed with fun and
lacking a quiet moment to pen a singsong aprony ditty.

This Frenchy wine themed one I’m wearing is from Enchanted Home.

More than protecting my white tees from stains,

I like how it announces to everyone I am large,

in charge, and ready to stir up delish.

Pointe shoes are optional, obvi.

(But nuthin says Yo, this sugar plum fairy be ready

to blow yer mind wit mad Calphalon style than

european pink slippers and a poppin apron.)

 Raising my glass to Tina who is celebrating her shop’s 1st anniversary!

For sure, this is the last post in which
you’ll see me climbin on top of tables,
counters, and consoles.

Here’s another option to crush on.

A Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture

overdyed pale pink floral apron which is

cute enough to wear away from the kitchen.
Also it hides a belly bloated from booze or just years of good food.


Git down, Rachel.

Go ‘head, git down.

Into aprons?

Peace to you right where you are.

    I'm into aprons since the holidays when Dylan dog gave me a few. I cook and wipe my hands on my pants and someone got tired of hearing me whine about the mess on my person….hello aprons! You know what I like about you Michele, the red wine glass always in your hand, my kind of gal!

    Michele are those the Shabby Chic Toms wedges I spy???? I *heart* them. I love aprons, too, but I tell ya that the combination red wine and toe shoes with our uneven limestone floors would put me in traction, but you look too, too cute!

    but i will declare how wonderful i look hoisting wine, esp. after a few!

    aprons are FUN and anything that helps keep you in a creative mood in the kitchen is beneficial. 🙂

    Is there anything you don't look amazing in? Seriously who coudl get away with an apron, pointe shoes on top of a kitchen countertop to boot and look as chic and glamorous as you do????? No one I know! You do my apron justice…and you are now officially my new covergirl for the apron! Glad you are enjoying it…..red wine in hand, you are so my kind of girl:)

    I am into aprons!! I will be getting some monogrammed for our shop workshops and I was discussing this with my son just yesterday. These french style aprons are lovely indeed!! I didn't realize my gal pal Tina sold these pretties!!

    Michele… aprons are my uniform! But I just can't quite imagine myself crawling up on the counters as graceful as you!!! You would make a burlap bag look good!!!!
    Darling post… darling you!

    Big time! I find myself wearing them all the time!
    Lovely pics of you! hx

    You know what I love, that white tshirt you have on! I'm also enchanted by the reflection of you in the mirror with your T… and all tousled hair and jeans… so freakin great… Of course the photo with the wine and ballet slippers and apron is cool too. It brings images of you dancing around the kitchen, drinking wine, cooking yummy goodies, and twirling around in a delightful sort of way… pretty much like in a musical… smile

    you are so sweet to me. the shirt is so comfy…a shabby chic couture t-shirt with 'the prairie' flags on the front. you can buy it online.

    Looking great, Michele! What a fun combo, wearing apron and ballerina slippers at the same time! Looks like you had a wonderful time!

    Happy weekend!
