Officially a fan of family, friends, AND strangers...

A couple of months ago, sister Julie Anne gave me this Christmassy apron to add to my collection...

For Christmas, Mama Gwilliam from NZ (who's technically a friend but really more like family) sent me this apron that she made when she was ELEVEN (that fact never ceases to amaze me)...

Today I came home to an absolutely delightful surprise! In our mailbox was a mystery package from a complete stranger. A kind little Australian angel named Robyn had read about my love of aprons- and the fact that I regrettably lacked an Aussie apron- and she sent me one! HOW AWESOME IS THAT??!!

WHAT KIND OF AN INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL STRANGER DOES THAT?? THANK YOU ROBYN!! I now consider you a friend. :)

This is good. This is reeeeeally good. I think I have an obsession here, folks!

Wow Julie, that is awesome! I know that you really wanted an Australian apron and you regretted not getting one. Cute Santa apron too!

Yes, Robyn is so awesome. You're totally adorable. I would love to know if you wear them regularly and if so... how do you pick which one??

Liz- I tooooootally wear them regularly. I think all the gals in my family do. My Mom wore them all the time while we were growing up, so we took our cue from her!

My apron choice is generally fairly random. I don't wear the dutch one when I cook though b/c it's just too darn cute, white, and frilly. That's a "serving" apron. Otherwise... there's not really a method to the madness!

You're so welcome! I'm glad I didn't freak you out too much, lol. I must admit I'm not an apron person (probably should be 'cause I'm a messy cook!) but I think they are totally cute, and your collection is gorgeous :) Have a wonderful week!
