Chicken Lovin' Hot Mama's Apron Swap

Well, today I got my apron from Kathy. It is so nice. My entire swap box was just so incredibly well put together. Kathy sent me wonderful vintage buttons and a cross stitch doilly- I just adore them. She included some beautiful tatted ribbon and log cabin chicken pin cushion! Oh my goodness that chicken has stolen my heart!

Wait it's gonna get better - she made me a chicken MUG RUG! with a beautiful chicken mug!

I'm holding back here a little because you see Kathy understands what it is like to own Dachshunds! She and her husband have had doxies and me and my husband have doxies! I don't have children so my two puppies are my kiddos. Given all that, Kathy sent me this beautiful dachshund pin and some wonderful dachshund earrings!

I know you're all jealous now right! Or your wanting to know about the apron. I always like to save the best for last, so here is the great apron Kathy made me! I love the big pockets with the gingham trim. It reverses too, so I get two looks out of one apron - the reverse side is some great egg fabric! It just cracks me up!

Thank you so very much Kathy. You made this swap extra special for me and I really appreciate you kindness and talent.

I am so happy that you liked your swap package. I saw that you liked vintage things (I do too) so I had to throw in some vintage thingies even tho they were not chickens -- LOL! Enjoy!
