yesterday at lunch i hauled my cookies to the ups store to pick up a package from my dear friend/ex-college roommate/fellow blogger mel. i ripped open the box as soon as i got to my car and was thrilled to find a fantastic apron from sommer designs waiting for me inside!
for those of you who are unfamiliar, sommer designs is run by carrie sommers, a california-based accessories designer and blogger. carrie’s shop is full of wonderful things (drawer liners, handbags, pouches, key fobs and baby burpy cloths), but it’s her aprons that are really fabulous. as you can see from the photo above, mel sent me a hostess-style one in the “melrose” print, and i seriously can’t wait to put it on and whip up some kind of delicious confection. (here’s a little factoid about me: i love to bake, why is why the idea of wearing something so pretty while doing so is such a fun one.)
thank you, thank you, thank you, mel, for such an awesome birthday present!
