Well here is what I was up to.
Bought 10 aprons for $2 from and estate
sale this summer.
flour sacks at Walmart
5 for $4.95 bought 2 packs
6 iron transfers for $11.95 x2 at Kmart
so I spent
Now let us turn that in to
12 presents for 5 different people
or as I see it $3 a gift.
Remember the recipes I used
they were My Great Grandmother's
hand written by her
one is for a tomato soup recipe and is written on
their Electrical business paper
and the other
Nina Pearl Snyder
The Twins are getting these
this is the apron for Sheryl
I love how it turned out..may be my favorite
the other is for her sister
a little more playful
They also are getting towels
a set with oranges and pears
since one is a teacher and the other is a librarian
these are from my Mom's books.
One the twins father gave to her.
They love Louisa May Alcott
I like the graphics
Now another set of towels and an apron for my
SIL...but she reads my blog.
so they will not be shown.
cousin Marty is getting this apron for a birthday present in 2 weeks
She misses 1515 after awhile and can not come at Christmas
so she will have a little bit of Charleston with her all season.
This is a postcard I had and added garland from Graphic Fairy
Her sister has the most amazing dog
he usually comes to 1515 but is getting a little older
and does not travel well.
Several years ago I took a great picture of him
So he is on his Mommy's apron
and her other gifts
postcards I had one with puppies sledding and the other of a
little girl calling Santa
my Grandmother gave her sister in 1909.
it took all day to iron the linens then transfer them.
But I took my time trying to think about each person,
who they are and what they like.
I hope they all will be happy.
of course I always make a mess.
my dining room looks like a linen store!
so the aprons and the towels are done.
Have another project for them.......involves
