Happy Holidays Giveaway!

UPDATE, PLEASE READ: I just got this email from Joan – YAY!

don’t forget I will send the winner a copy of A is for Apron as well ~ joan

Thanks JOAN!!! How generous! The winner is going to be ONE LUCKY CHICK!


As promised! I have to first introduce you to a wonderful apronista I met over at etsy.  I LOVE THAT PLACE! Anywho, her name is Joan and she lives – well not to far from me actually over in Texas.  I found her retro inspired aprons and ordered one – maybe 2 years ago. Look, I am not going to lie to you, Joan has the cleanest, closest, prettiest stitches I have EVER seen.  Where I sew, she is a seamstress!  I have since ordered several aprons from her and I also have a book she is featured in call A is for Apron. We have talked several times over the phone about aprons, family, cooking – you name it, we’ve covered it.  So when I found out Simplicity was putting two of her designs out in pattern form,  I was so excited for her and told her when it was out and for sale I wanted to do a giveaway!  The pattern is ADORABLE.  It’s two styles of aprons with Mother/Daughter sizes, plus potholders, sachets and felt Christmas cookie patterns!

Here is your chance to get this pattern, a apron kit (rick rack included!) with Christmas fabric and a “plate of Christmas Cookies” – all the generosity of Joan!  And I thank her so much for providing a great package for some lucky apron loving reader!


Oh, the vintage bread bowl is NOT included.  That was my granny’s.

You know the drill…leave a comment, consider yourself entered to win.  But with a little twist.  Please share your very favorite holiday “kitchen” memory with us. It can be a favorite dish you cook, or decoration you put up…just something related to our “hearts of our homes” ~ our kitchens.  You have until next Friday December 11  to get your comment posted.  I will not put any names that come in after midnight CST on the 11th. On the 12th, Saturday I will draw the winner!   And if you would like to get an extra chance, take this button, post it on your blog and let me know, and I will add your name a second time.  Fun huh?


So Happy Holidays from me and Momomadeit!  Oh…get over there and look at her etsy shoppe!  Here’s the lnk: Momomadeit!

Good luck everyone!


Happy Friday Everyone!

I have a few announcements for you this morning…

First I think my life is getting back to a bit of a normal pitch.  It was a rough couple of weeks but I think we are moving along now.  Like I said before when I am at liberty to reveal the details I will, but know everyone is well and gathering their ducks to get them in a row.

Second, I started a forum I would like to tell you about.   Just follow this banner and see if you think you would like to join.


AND I have three  FANTASTIC giveaways coming up in December.

On December 4th I will be giving away a copy of my cookbook NotQuiteJuneCleaver Bakes a Pie to one lucky winner and a copy of my calender to another – so two winners on one day! How to enter?  Same old way I will announce “let the fun begin” tomorrow and you will have until next Friday to enter under that post.  Then as soon as that drawing is done on December 11, I will announce the third one is underway with a winner being picked on December 18. This one is a very special giveaway that deserves the proper presentation so you will just have to wait to find out.  But lets say if you love aprons, retro, crafting, holidays…you will love this giveaway!

AND I will have in my possession in just a few days a box of my cookbooks, so if you want a copy personalized or sent as a gift, email me.  There will be a limited supply of the first shipment.

ALSO, I will have an announcement this weekend about a new venture I am participating in with other online biznisses – so check back.

Okay, I think that is it.  Watch for a giveaway announcement tomorrow…and much more just down the road.

Hope you all had a happy turkey day and we will talk again real soon!
