Look what came in the mail!

Donna at Brynwood Needleworks sent me some great goodies!!! I won her giveaway in celebration of her 300th post. This came in the mail actually two days ago, but I have been so busy trying to get my recipes remember that post, right? (Here) that I haven't even been able to open it...until tonight!
That's really unusual for me, because everything must stop if I have a present!!! LOL

Of course, she took a much better picture of it all, so I'm going to add hers here....

(you can click on her picture (above) to go to her blog. She's a fascinating and busy woman! I love reading her blog and seeing what she's up to (she's always up to something beautiful!)

also, I got the neatest birthday present from my aunt Sarah (yeah, I'm late posting that too!). She is one of the contributors on my other blog Real Women Eat. Have you been there? You've gotta check it out. We're due for a "Cook-N-Critique" the end of this month so be sure to check it out..
Anyway, I think it's first of all, totally appropriate! (LOL) and secondly totally cool!!!! You know, I love repurposing and she did it all the way! Look!

She made the apron out of a jeans skirt... lovin' the hot pink fabric patches, don't you?

and if that wasn't cool enough, she even repurposed the wrapping and presentation! Get this!
The same fabric she used for the accents on the jeans apron she used to wrap it in
and can you see how she closed it? Instead of tape she... well, look for yourself...

Does she get me or what?!? LOL
Thank you Donna and Sarah! You made me smile!
