Aprons by "Vee"!

Vee, at one of my favorite blogs, "A Haven For Vee," had her one year blog anniversary on Tuesday, July 22, 2008, and offered to give a beautiful apron she had just hand made in a random draw from someone who commented on her blog that day.

She had her handsome new husband model her creation, which you can see here, and do the random draw.

I was the lucky winner!

I was so excited to hear I was going to soon be receiving an original Vee apron! I love aprons and I have a collection of them, but none that was an original!

Her package arrived yesterday and inside was this very beautifully lavender scented wrapping paper tied with a pretty shear bow.

Inside, wrapped so neatly in tissue paper, was this cheerful red plaid apron!

It also had a lovely note by Vee in the pocket, and shhhhh .... our secret forever, but now I know what the "V" stands for!

Vee, it was your blog anniversary and you celebrated as you always do in your blog, by sharing a part of yourself and being a good friend. Through the days and weeks that added up to a blog year you have been honest, entertaining, informative, inquisitive, sharing, devout, funny, questioning, encouraging, perfect, and imperfect :-)

I feel a sisterhood between us, and it has been wonderful to be your blog friend these past six months that I've been blogging.

Thanks so much for being you, and thank you for this special apron! I will always think of you when I wear it!

So here we are!

Me, and my hubby who is a "V" too, modeling the special apron as we cook dinner!

I'm glad it was made extra large, as you can see we both need it! :-)

Thanks Vee!!

We know this apron will be a favorite!

A big CONGRATS to you Pat. You know when I started blogging, I never dreamt that it will be this special, connecting with people and getting beyond just virtual friends, but I am just glad it did. Great gift from a wonderful blogger :D

Congratulations on winning the apron, Pat! Isn't it lovely!

She packaged it up so beautifully and with such care. I'm jealous.

I stopped over at her blog and now have another person I must visit (it's getting out of control - there are so many welcoming and wonderful blogs in this community).

It would even look great during the holidays!

What an adorable apron! Congratulations, Pat! :)

Vee really knows how to wrap up a special package, doesn't she? I was the recipient of her 200th post give-away and it was a real treasure! It also smelled heavenly...I'm thinking it may have been that mauve flowery paper I see in your photos.

Enjoy your apron...it looks like you two are cooking up something yummy!

Beverly said...

Pat, it is wonderful. You and hubby both look great. I know your Vee creation is an instant treasure.

Joanne Kennedy said...

How fun! What a great giveaway you won! Lucky you. You and your husband look darling in it.

Hey, what are you two cooking there? It looks good.

What a Susie Homemaker you are, cooking in your apron with a cake already baked next to you. I'm impressed!

I knew the red apron was going to suit you with your hair colouring, that was before I scrolled down to see the photos and great to see it suits your husband as well. I love the tissue paper it was wrapped in. I must investigate Vee's blog, I have noticed Vee cropping up in comments, and wondered what it stood for, I guess I will never know! Congratulations on winning the prize, I always find the giveaways great fun. x
