Giveaway: a Rosebud Gracie apron

I wasn't planning on doing a giveaway for this apron. It was a very gently used sheet from Laura Ashley that I bought, and unfortunately, there is some discoloration towards the top of the apron, and a few light smudges on a very small area in the flounce.

The fabric is 50% combed cotton and 50% polyester, which makes this apron incredibly soft. So combine the used sheet with its softness, and someone (or you!) just might believe you are wearing a REAL 1940's apron!

The back view:


Oh yes, and it has shoots of spring green grass growing rick-rack on the pockets to finish off this adorable apron!

All you have to do to enter, is leave a comment with your name (first name and last initial, please).

You can be entered twice, by posting a link over to this post from your blog, and then leave a second comment (please be sure to leave your blog address too)!

I will choose a winner by Friday noon (CST), and will post the winner shortly thereafter.

That is so pretty! I love your Gracie aprons anyway, they are so adorable...even though I haven't bought one yet. If I had the money I'd probably buy all of the ones you've made...just kidding, but you've had a lot of beautiful choices of fabric!

So, I would love to be entered in the giveaway!
