Giveaway! Merry Mushrooms Apron

Welcome to those of you who have cruised in from the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

I hope you'll take a minute to check out my blog.  I frequently rattle on about sewing, quilting, cooking, my love of aprons, my inept attempts at domesticity, affinity for all thing vintage, and Harry Connick Jr.

But enough about me,  I know why you're really here....

Giveaway Day!

I would love for you to have this fun, funky, retro smock style apron made from Windham's Merry Mushroom line! While I adore a flouncy, girly apon, I love a good smock apron too. They're great for doing household chores and allow you to get down and dirty without a lot of flounce and froof to get in the way!

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post to be eligible to win!  Please leave your email address or make sure that you have an email addy attached to your profile so I can contact you if you win. That's it! Easy-Cheesy, right?

If you would like extra entries you can:
  • become a follower of my blog(let me know via a comment).
AND/OR
  • visit my etsy shop, come back here and tell me which of the six or so aprons currently listed is your favorite.  www.laughingotter.etsy.com
Giveaway will run through December 17th.

Thanks for stopping by!  That's it for me---I'm off to try and snag some goodies myself!
