An apron and a surprise

This weekend I was so blessed to receive in the mail a package from the delightful ladies of Marie-Madeline Studio. Here's what I found inside:


The ladies had generously offered to send me an apron of my choosing (though they took my ideas and surprised me with the final choices- isn't it lovely?). I have been excitedly waiting for it to come. Turns out it was delayed because it had been sent to my neighbor's house instead of mine! I'm glad she didn't know what was in it, or it might not have ever reached me!


My Abbie was just thrilled to find out that not only had they sent Mommy an apron, but they had decided to send her a little surprise as well… her very own Gracie Ruffle Skirt! She thinks it's just like a ballerina skirt, and she wore it to a birthday party today. It is just so adorable and girlie- I love it!


Isn't she precious? Though I was having a yucky, no shower, wearing-my-old-glasses day, I just had to get Ryan to take a few pictures of us together, enjoying our lovely new gifts.

Thanks to the ladies of Marie-Madeline Studio! Today I'm grateful for the beautiful, feminine items you've blessed us with!

  3. Such a cute apron! And I love that I’m not the only one that has yucky/no shower days! Like today for instance… 🙂

  4. Those are just the prettiest aprons I have ever laid eyes on! I just love how feminine they are! I only have a plain white apron which is very functional, but I think I may need to sew a pretty one soon!

    Blessings to you and your family!

  5. I found a link to this blog through someone else’s blog. I just had to say, the apron and skirt are so adorable and feminine! I wonder if they’re hard to make?

  6. Beautiful! I’ve made a few aprons, but I’d love to make one like that – (looks like a Cath Kidston fabric…)
    And I think you looked wonderful for a “yucky, no shower, wearing-my-old-glasses day” 🙂
