Sunday Excitement!

I wasn’t the only one making an early run to the grocery store this morning. Not that I had to fight for the last ears of corn of anything, but when it came time to check out, I was three carts back from my turn to unload groceries onto the conveyor belt. I used the idling time to look through the magazines, and when I saw the July/August issue of Cooking with Paula Deen

I shrieked, decibel-wise a bit less than if I’d just been stung by a bee, BECAUSE I am the featured Woman of Note!!! Three pages worth yet!!! And this, on the heels of a beautiful spread featuring The Kitchen Linens Book in the latest Romantic Homes.

It’s taking me forever to write this blog, because I keep staring at the covers and rereading the articles, which, of course, I knew about, but to actually see the magazines and hold them is a whole other thang!

So, to celebrate that a Sunday grocery store excursion turned into an icing on the cake moment, I’m holding a giveaway drawing each Sunday during the months of July and August. On July 5th, the first present is a personalized copy of my Apron Chronicles exhibit catalogue. Apron Chronicles represents 4 years of my apron journey, and it truly is a most stunning presentation of the American experience as examined through photography, storytelling and the fabric of the apron. I love this exhibit.AC cover (Medium)

Each Sunday, the winner of the week’s giveaway will be selected from the list of subscribers to my Apron Memories newsletter. So, to be eligible, just sign up!

Every day should have a little icing on the cake!


Tie One On…an apron, of course!

  2. Hey! Congratulations!! Hard work pays off in lots of fun ways, doesn’t it?! I’d love to hear the story of the great cover photo on the Apron Chronicles book. Have a great day!

  3. Congrats on the press. Just saw Paula D on the Kathy Griffin show and have an all new respect for her! Wanted to stop by and say I can’t wait to get my hands on your vintage linens book, saw in on Feeling Stitchy. Just this past weekend I bought the exact tea towel on the cover for $2. I plan on making it into an applique.
