Let's get right to our giveaway items. What does every farmgirl need on her suburban homestead, city garden scape, or backyard farm yard besides a small patch of dirt? What makes her day go smoother and keeps her cleaner as she goes about her daily rounds?
Why, an APRON of course! Deb, Heidi, and I are giving away one apron each as our way of saying thank you for all of your wonderful posts and your continued participation in our weekly hop!
First we have Deb's Apron Giveaway
This vintage apron came from the Queen Bee herself, sister # 1 Mary Jane Butters! Being the generous farmgirl she is she donated a big box of vintage aprons to me to sell in my booth and I kept one very special apron out for this occasion.
Next up we have Heidi's Apron Giveaway
"The apron's body is made from a muted sky blue and white floral print with large cabbage roses and tree blossoms on it. A full length apron featuring a lovely contrasting red and white polka dot ruffle around the skirt, ties, and front left pocket. This design/print was the first Maryjane's Farm apron I ever bought. I still have my original one. It's very special to me. It reminds me of my Grandma Pearl. I was so excited to find this apron again that I got two- one for my "stash" and one for the Original Farmgirl Friday blog hop's 100th Birthday Bash Giveaway!!!
My Apron Giveaway
"I have adapted and made this from one of my Great-Grandmama Maggie's and
Grandmama Cora's Apron Patterns
This is a tried and true apron that has been used over the generations. I actually have one of their aprons and can testify that they last for many, many years.
This is a work apron, which means it covers your clothing so nicely and still has some beauty to it. I dare say you will grab this simple apron time and time again.. I know I use mine..."
Made of 100% premium cotton and machine washable/dryable for years of easy use.
I did add a few little changes like add the ruffle at the neckline and add an adjustable neck strap for easier fitting....guess Grandma would call that ruffle a little fancy for work but hey she would just wear this one on Sunday...
I wanted to add these knitted dish cloths
They too will stand the test of time and get better with use and each washing.
So pay a visit to each of the blogs to place your comment and enter to win one of these fabulous aprons.
