Update & Give-away

Just letting you know we have a couple of hot possibilities for our shop location. We need to check with the public authorities whether or not they are allowed to be used as a food establishment and then hopefully we can make a move.

This last two weeks we have been held up with some other pressing matters and now the holidays are upon us. I'm trying to be optimistic but I feel like the time is getting away from me and out hoped for opening period is going by!

We can only do what we can. Now for the good bit of the post...

In the shop we are planning on wearing cute hand-made aprons. I'm particularly looking forward to seeing Alex in his!

I have three friends who are excellent at sewing and we have been working on some prototypes. If there is enough interest we will also sell them in the shop and possibly on our site when we get the full shop site up and running.

There will be aprons for men, women and children eventually but so far we have just done two or three to see how cute they are. We are going to improve the designs and fabric quality along the way.

I've decided to give one of the prototype aprons away. This little cutie:

Its a woman-sized half apron. To have the opportunity to get a hold of this apron for yourself or for some-one in your life just let me know in the comments whether or not you wear an apron when cooking?

I tend to put my apron on at times when I know there is going to be a lot of mess but judging from the way I always end up in a mess without one, I should really wear it all the time!

You have until Sunday evening to leave your comment!



  1. Liz, I don't wear aprons but I collect them and give them to my helpers in the kitchen.; )

  2. hmmmm, yes, I do wear aprons and I definitely would wear that delightful apron...good luck with the will work out in the end...

  3. Love the apron! Yes, I always wear aprons when I'm baking ... and my children like to wear theirs too! Naomi x

  4. Oh, what a cute apron! I'm a long-time reader of your blog and big fan. I do wear aprons when cooking or baking and I'm always looking for cute ones!

  5. Aprons, why certainly! Especially, when I bake lemon tarts.

  6. Pretty apron!I like wearing aprons so I hope I win it,but regardless I will definitely come and see them in your shop!

  7. I wear half aprons all the time when cooking but I don't need to win one, It would cost way too much to send to Canada. I sew so I generally make a couple of new ones a year. We'll be in your neck of the woods come late summer so I hope you have your shop up and running.
