I came home for lunch today and found a package from nannetta.  I knew my apron had arrived.  Oh my gosh!  They say cowgirls don't cry, I almost did.  Now don't get me wrong it wasn't ugly, It was perfect.  I know that nanetta spent her time stalking me and chose very carefully what she did.  You see I really like frogs!   My dad passed away 5 years ago from liver cancer.  He was called frog from employees who worked under him  ( he had a very deep throaty voice) hence I got the nick name of tadpole by a good friend of mine who worked under my dad.  So I collect frogs!  This apron is amazing in craft manship, color, fabric reminds me of Spirograph. See for yourself! Oh it is also done in my kitchen colors!

It is  a perfect fit!

The pleats.

I love the frogs, dragonflies, bees, flowers, umbrella, bursting with bright color!!!!

These are the cute glass buttons you see around the frogs.

Next was my extra which is a cut, adorable multi use pocket apron.  Do I have plans for this. Great for crafting, gardening etc.  My mom wants to use it at their church garage sale. The base color is a bright purple, another favorite of mine, and the contrast fabric fits me too! My navy t-shirt is hanging out underneath not the best photo.

I forgot to edit this one.  It is a thimble to add to my collection.  I never dreamed I would have one sent from Germany, without craftster it would not have happened.  Nannetta wrote that it is the Bavarian Coat of Arms,  Lions and a white and blue shield. What a terrific gift. 

And this is the cute card that she included. Oops not the best picture, very vintage I love it all!

Thank you so much nannetta you have been such a great partner!!!!

The red and white apron is so cute!  I just love that jumbo rick rack!

Quaggy, that apron is so special -- and your story is beautiful.  Nannetta -- I am so moved by your stalking and the thought you put into your designs.  Beautiful aprons and extras, everyone.  So sweet.

Oooh, mushrooms! So cute.

The spirograph fabric is neat but I'm really digging the short apron. All of a sudden, I NEED one!

I love the frogs and fabric for that one. The frogs are so fun and playful, it's great!

Those aprons are fantastic, Nannetta!  The fogs are so cheerful and hearing about the significance is so so sweet!

Ready to go OUT & About with me?

So come on and look at this FA_BU_LOUS apron I got from Dharma_rebel...

Dharma made this apron more special with this beautiful embroidery (incredible stitches) mirroring images of the cute flowers from the fabric...It is just sensational.

Now...let's talk about being caring...on my box I also got a matching towel (love the ric rac) and materials to make a macthing pot holder! HUHU..Now if that was not enough...Dharma FOUND my FAVORITE Candy ever! Milky!!!! YAY!

See the gal on the box...put some highlights and you see me right now! Thank you soo much Dharma..I will take this apron out on the streets!!
