Bloggy Apron Giveaways!

***THANKS to everyone who entered my giveaway!****
The winners are:
Jingle who said..."These are great! I would most like to win the owl apron. It's a really cute pattern!" Her choice was the owl apron.
AND
Misty who said..."etsy: i can't decide b/twn pink giraffes or toile dogs. :)"Her apron of choice was the funky artsy fartsy one.

I'll be contacting you gals!

It's time for another Bloggy Giveaways Carnival, y'all! WooHoo! These are so much fun!

This time around I'm giving away two aprons! The first is this cafe style Owl Apron, I debated on whether or not to put it in the Etsy shop and ultimately decided it'd be more fun to give it away! So here's a look. It's a one pocket cafe style apron. I love love love this owl print. And for those of you who like your aprons on the wacky and/or recycled side, I'm giving away this artsy-fartsy apron that I made from a 1970's mu-mu/house dress, a dotted swiss window valance and a funky bandanna. If you'd like to win, please leave a comment and tell me which of these aprons you'd most like to tie on...it's as simple as that! You do not have to be a blogger to win, but please leave a way for me to contact you if you do win.

If you'd like to be entered twice you can go to my Etsy shop, have a look around...come back here and tell me which Etsy apron is your favorite in a second comment.

I'll announce and contact the winners on Sunday November 2.

Looking for more giveaways? There' a little something for everyone over on the Bloggy Giveways Carnival ! Bloggers from around the blogsophere are giving away everything under the sun! Head on over to get in on all the action!

OK now, go ahead & give me some apron love.

I love your Etsy aprons! My favorite overall look is the toile dogs - the contrast pocket is cute. BUT, the giraffes are to DIE for! Hilarious!!! You need to join my apron swap sometime!! We have similar humor!
