Love doing those dishes, or just look like you do!

I giggled when I found this apron on Etsy. I'm a person who doesn't exactly "LOVE" doing dishes, so I need all the inspiration I can get. This little valentine apron for your dish soap bottle might just be the ticket!

Thursday's For the Birds

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers! Since many of you are likely crowed around a big bird "the Turkey" today, I thought we'd have a little birds theme in my apron discoveries. Grab that platter of mashed potatoes and jump up to your computer screen to find some "tweet" ones today. :)
First up is this unique block print apron featuring a little chickadee. I loved the art deco styling of this one as well as the simplicity. I think this would be an ideal everyday apron! I also thought the vintage fabric waistline is a nice modern kick to the design. You can Snag this one on Etsy from Art Goodies >

Then Pretty Ditty had a listing I just couldn't pass by. Its called "Perched" and I adore the mod print fabric in colors of steel, teal and pink. The fabric is imported from Japan and features little birds perched on treetops!
