free to a good home.

aprons, hurrah!
while experimenting with apron styles and methods of construction, i quickly stitched up a matching mom and daughter (or aunt and niece, etcetera) apron set from a delectable cupcake print. the stitching on these are not quite up to the standards i'd require to sell them in my shop, but they are functional and super cute and would love to hang out in your kitchen and bake lemon sponge cake with you.

any takers? i'll mail them to the first person who leaves me a comment saying that you'd like to have them. (please be sure to give me a method to contact you for a shipping address.)

newish news: in another bold move to Organize My Life, i've opened an additional etsy shop devoted solely to my textile goods: skirts and aprons and dresses and such. right now i've a dozen or so pieces listed, but i'll be adding more as i destash, and also as i cut into some beautiful nicey jane prints. (i tried, internet. quite valiantly. but in the end they were too bright and sunshiney and joyful, and i found i simply couldn't resist new fabric.)

please meet charlotte and elise, the first two aprons available in the shop:

as with my jewelry shop, all income from sweetTea clothier shall help us meet our adoption expenses.

may your tuesday be full of color.

When I saw the title of your post, I was expecting to see a picture of one of your kids. Imagine my shock when I saw aprons!

I love those aprons! I'm heading over to your etsy shop now! My sisters & I were wanting aprons for our spring show in May! I think you'll have what we need or maybe something custom?!

Ooooooo I love the nicey jane. I'm not an apron wearer myself and have no girls in the kitchen (but do have boys who love to cook) but love looking at those gorgeous aprons. Good luck with the sale and the adoption. I know the waiting is so hard. But when you have that little one in your arms you will look back and think how perfect God planned the whole thing...wait and all.
