Shawnee hosted this fun apron swap! We were to make a matching apron for a mother and child and include a vintage child's cookbook. I had a lot of fun putting this one together. After finding the fabric, I went with a mittens and angels theme.
I made two matching, reversible clothespin aprons. Ripstick Boy picked out the terrific cookbook....what a find. I never thought I'd find anything as cute as this cookbook locally.
After all, there is NO Half-Price Books in little Old Slidell......hint, hint.
I looked EVERYWHERE for some mitten or angel buttons but no store had any.......so I opted for this little mitten charm instead.
I also couldn't find a mitten cookie cutter so instead, I sent angel and gingerbread man shapes.
I also made some cupcake toppers...angels and mittens of course!
Now on to what WE GOT!
Angelic sent us the best stuff ever! She ALSO made us reversible clothes pin aprons........great minds think alike!
I am showing one side off and Curly Girl the other.....PERFECTION!
I don't know HOW she knows we are major hot cocoa drinkers......
In the box was cocoa, some fixins like marshmallows, cinnamon sugar, cracked peppermints, personalized mugs and those cute measuring spoons that say 'dash' tad', etc. She made me a little cookbook of their favorite recipes....can't wait to try them.
We put it all to use IMMEDIATELY:
see the cinnamon sugar on top? YUM
Thank you Angelic!!!
