Sassy Apron

It Has Come!!!!
I'm so excited.
I got this wonderful Package all the way from England from Cara L.

I have been checking my mailbox for over a week ever since my sister Lucy told me my apron was on it's way. Well today was the day. I have bee waiting for spring to come. I am sooooo!!! tired of the cold. I know that Oklahoma doesn't get as cold as you in the northern states but I have been to cold this winter. This lovely little apron will be just the trick. I love the pink flowers. The pocket will be just right for carrying my i-pod around in while I listen to Jane Austen or Thomas Hardy from LibriVox. Right now I am listening to Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell. (I think I have a new favorite author.)

Here is the reverse side of the apron. The pocket had cute little Lambs on it.
The recipie is for leeek and potato soup. I can't wait to try it. That should help me get over this cold feeling.

Cara sent this lovely postcard of Woodford Halse, in Northhamptonshire. England. I love it. I would like to visit England one day. I have a rich family heritage from the Great Britton.

Also as you can see she also sent me some chocolate. I have always loved Cadbury eggs at Easter and am excited to try this candy.

Thanks so much. This is what makes swapping so much fun.

Jeanne, I am so pleased it arrived. Ever since I sent it I've been checking to see that you've got it - and that the chocolate didn't melt all over the apron! Enjoy a little spring warmth, Cara x

I totally missed the swap. Caught up with something else. Kids? Work? Husband? Dunno, maybe all. Anyway, I'm officially jealous! I will have to pay attention & participate next time!

Stop by sometime. I'll fix you a glass of iced tea & you can put your feet up. :D
