In awaiting I get the time to sort out the photos of the fun details that was the Little Loaf's birthday do today - success, but for some odd reason there's just a limited amount of cakes you can put in tummies, my freezer is now very, very full... - I'll give you the sunny apron named Olive. Not named by me, but by her maker, the inventive, creative crafter and very sewing machine competent Tif aka DottieAngel on Etsy, with a most crafty kind of blog (involving sweet chooks too). Olive is also the name of one adorable little sausage dog, of the kind I'm sure Little Loaf would have lots of fun upon opportunity.
It's nearly a year ago since I first saw her, Olive the apron, and it was smitten at first sight. Aprons are such fun as well as useful accessories, and before I knew it Olive was on her way over the Atlantic. Since it was way passed the summery, apron-wearing season when I got her, I haven't begun using her until the barelegged sun stroke some months ago.
A perky little one-size-fits all thing with quirky details and sunny demeanour I've found her most useful. She's delightfully handmade from recycled fabrics such as a vintage pillow case, vintage napkin, left over printed cottons, antique lace and a doily (and one clearly can't have too many doilies in life, right?). And upon arrival she smelled so nice and fresh too, that's such an extra bonus when there are fabrics involved in a buy I think.
So, Tif, we better late than never and hereby thank you very much for sending us such a sunny faced apron Olive, Little Loaf and I ~
