Hi Joyce! Congratulations on your first anniversary in blogland! Isn't it an amazing place!?
So many wonderful people, great ideas, tender hearts.

Your giveaway is so sweet! The aprons are adorable! The bright colors and big pockets make them practical too! I love the sweet bib apron!

They are both beautiful. I love the blue in the half apron, but I love the style of the second. Decision, decisions :-) I think I'd choose bodice apron...I'm a messy cook.

I just posted my Friday Pretties too.
Blessings,
Marcia
P.S. I'm having a giveaway too.

Mystica said...

Congratulations. I would like the first one as the second one is far too small for fat me!

Elsina said...

Happy blogoversary! I love your aprons, the second would be to small for me I guess, so the first, half apron would be my choice, but both are gorgeous!

Elsina said...

Sue@CountryPleasures said...

Happy first year of blogging, looking forward to many more! I'd love the full apron as I don't own many, mainly half aprons.

ministrywifefamilylife said...

I love them both but I think I like the fabric on the first one the best;) So I will go with the half:-) How fun, I think we started blogging around the same time didn't we? Whoo hoo! Giveaways are a grand idea! I need to get thinking.

Love ya lady:) (See you next week or so)!

ministrywifefamilylife said...

Ooh ooh, and I am a follower!

Your Southern Peach said...

I adore both of them but would have to go with the full apron for practicality. Congratulations on turning one! That's a great accomplishment.

Your Southern Peach said...

Kerri said...

And I am already a follower and you have been on my sidebar of blog love for some time now! :)

Gloria said...

Happy "1-year" Anniversary!! :)

I love both of the aprons. That is a hard decision! I am a messy cook, so I will have to go with the full apron. :) IF I win it, maybe I should allow you to give it to another reader?? EVEN though I would LOVE to KEEP IT! It seems like everytime I leave a comment I win...:) I have been loving my purse you made that I won from you! So...if I do happen, by chance, to win. I think it should go to someone else who hasn't won before, to have the joy of receiving one of your amazing aprons! I already am a proud follower...just so you know (NOT so I can increase my chances of winning...ha...:))

The free pretty pictures are so sweet too! Adorable!

Have a happy weekend!

XOXO
Gloria

Joyce, that is so fun for you!!! I remember when my blog turned one, not too long ago, I had a virtual party and invited my (5) readers to come!!! :)

I love this give-a-way! Both aprons are FABULOUS, I wouldn't even know which one to choose ... hmmmm ... maybe ... the full one! But both are stinkin' cute!

Thanks!!!
